Researching surname GRAND / RIEU from France and DUNN from Ireland
- My Great grandfather, Ferdiand Eugene Grand b: 1866 Marseille France
came to the US in 1888. Married Marie Rieu in 1901 in New York. Had
two children, Eugene Ferdinand Grand (b: 1901) and Marie Thelma
(b:1910) Marie Rieu died in 1915 in France. The two children stayed in
France till after WWI.
Ferdinand Eugene Grand later married Margaret Dunn in Chicago and had a
child Eugene Patrick Grand (b: 1920). Ferdinand Eugene Grand died 1928.
Here are some of my roadblocks:
Trying to connect with the Chicago Grands. I met Eugene Patrick Grand
years and years ago and I think he has children. I would love to
connect with them.
Also, we lost track of Marie Thelma Grand. She married twice. First
she married a George Hamilton (probably in New York) and later married
Paul Harrison in Texas. Thelma Harrison? Thelma Hamilton? Marie
Thelma Hamilton? She had a daughter named Jacqueline in the 1930's (by
her first husband)
