I like to make researches about forgotten people I met while walking along the streets of my region ( Champagne in France) or in cemeteries. Some streets are named after unkno people nowadays though they were very famous when they lived. For instance, Napoléon Ambroise Cotte professeur 1813-1880 in Troyes. Looking after informations about his life I found his son Jules Léon Cottet who went to the USA to join an Icarian community in Nauvoo<<<<<<<; You may see on my blogs some of my works. http://troyes-en-champagne.blogspot.com http://brienne-aube.blogspot.com
Thank you for your message, although I am not sure exactly who you are referring to. If you could give me more specific information about a particular memorial or name that would be helpful. I do have a French connection in my family.
Roine' Thank you for your message on Pierre Roine, my great, great, great grandfather.. This information fits and you have added information which I did not have. August was his brother, entered through New Orleans.
RE: Elisabeth Palis Vaney Thank you for the information. I have posted it to her memorial page. I am not related, I just walked that cemetery. There are mostly nuns of the School Sister of Notre Dame. There are just a small group of lay persons buried at this convent cemetery.
RE: Jonvaux Photo Request Ok, I understand now what you want. I went out to the cemetery yesterday and looked at the stone, hoping to be able to read it in person. The inscription is more worn than ever and I had no success being able to read the inscription. I'll study it again sometime when I am out there next.
Icarians Dear Sir, My ancestor was Pierre Roine from Nantes, France I am trying to link him to Jules Edwouard Roine famous artist in the late 1800's I have a very old lithograph of a building in Nantes France and I found a Roine' who made playing cards (Alouette) The building is decorated with the four deck symbols, Heart, club, spade and diamond - This lithograph is from the mid 1800's and I treasure it. Again, thank you for honoring M. Cabet. Charlene
Jonvaux Photo Request Hi - you requested a photo for Antoine Jonvaus at Oak Ridge Cemetery in Springfield, IL. There are already 2 tombstone photos on this listing so am wondering what else you wanted. If you mistakenly requested a photo, please delete your request. If there is something else you need, please let me know. Thanks.
