The Louis Marchand Family
Bonne Terre, Missouri

The Louis Marchand Family Scrapbook has been compiled from the photo albums of his daughters who passed them on to their children and grandchildren. Louis Marchand, born in 1854 in Sermamagny, Alsace, France, immigrated from France to America in 1872 with his parents and siblings. They first settled in Luebbering, Franklin County, MO. Louis married Matilda Straub in 1880. In 1887, Louis and Matilda moved to Bonne Terre where they raised their family of thirteen children. Louis became a saloon owner, Justice of the Peace, Police Judge, and Grand Chancellor of the Knights of Pythias. He was one of a group of civic leaders who worked to achieve city status for Bonne Terre in 1917. Louis died in 1926 and was buried in St. Joseph Cemetery. 

Collection contributed by Joseph Wilkson, a descendant of this family.
