In 1848 he came West and located at Racine, Wisconsin, and while living there he started what is now Secor Trunk Factory. When the Civil War broke out he took the contract of manufacturing knapsacks, haversacks and cavalry saddles for the Government. In the year 1862 he removed his factory to Randolph Street in Chicago.

NEUVILLE, PONTO, SALUN posted by Linda (Neville) Swanson on Wednesday, September 17, 1997

Branch of family originated in Door County, though not sure if that's the only county to be presumed. Need data re: a John PONTO who married Eliza NEUVILLE who may have been born appx 1870ish. Family papers show their children's names to be Harold, Raymond, Blanch & Ethel who may have been born in late 1800's-1900, then their children may have been born early 1900's and so forth. Would like more info for names mentioned, along with grandchildren, great-greats, etc to bring a little more current. The main identifying detail I can mention here, is that Eliza NEUVILLE was daughter of Jacques NEUVILLE (born 1840) & Marie Theresa SALUN (both of Belgium), with siblings: Flora, Isadore, Rose, Mellory, Jospehine, Louie, Mary & Ananias. Altho' this deviates from the NEUVILLE line that I'm focused on, any data would be appreciated, and I can share other data too. Ponto's are questioned because I'd like to give consideration to women of the family too, even when their surnames changed because marriage -taking them off the main tree. Thank you.
