After going over my mothers' notes, and doing my own research for several years, several questions come to mind. If ANYONE has any ideas on the following, please email me:
- What was the name of the ship, or ships, that the Jacquets came over on?
- For the name of the ship, please press the SHIPS button at the left.
- Does anyone have a photograph of Francois and Francoise (Frank and Frances)? Franks' estate papers mention that his son, John Michele Jacquet, had four or five copies of a photo made to give to the heirs. Whatever
happened to them? For the answer to this question, click here.
- Were they (Francois and Francoise) ever naturalized?
- Why were the two son's, Albert and John, not allowed to enlist in the Civil War? The reason given in a letter is that they were foreign-born, but that makes no historical sense, as many foreign-born troops fought.
- What were John Jacquet and his wife and child doing in Chillicothe, Missouri in 1870? Were they homesteading? And why did they return to Ohio?
Mary Frances Gillier Jacquet, the mother of Francois, is in the 1850 Ohio federal census, as being 72; in the 1860 census, she is 83; she is not listed in the 1870 census, and given her age, I assume she has
died at some point in the 1860's. The question is, where and when?
- A translated letter states that she died at age 84, which means 1861 0r 62.
- Whatever happened to Albert Masson, Francis Jacquet's grandson? He is said to have married, become a widower at a young age, and moved with his two sons (Louis and Weston) to Syracuse NY. At that point the trail grows cold.
Also, who did Albert Masson marry?
- I have since learned that Albert Masson died in Syracuse, New York in 1933. Also that he married a Laura Beyer. For further info go to MASSON
- One of Francis and Frances Jacquet's daughters, Delphine Myers, had three daughters: Wilda, Ida, and Bertha. Only Wilda was married, to a man by the last name of SCHEETZ. They moved to Canton, Ohio. Then what?
