13Baumann family and Napoleon
- May 14, 2004Hi,
I am researching my Baumann ancestors who accompanied Napoleon to St.
Helena. I am told that some descendents of this family still live on
the island. The family came from Alsace, France, and some moved with
Napoleon to Kassel, Germany. I have been told that when Napoleon
died, the Baumann family's dining room table was used to make his
coffin. I have also heard that my relative, Penelope Bright Bond, or
perhaps her mother, Elfie Baumann Bright, was in contact with some
relatives on St. Helena. If anyone knows anything about members of
this family on St. Helena, please contact me. I have much information
to share about other branches of the family.
