Daum von La Chaux-de-Fonds NE

Post by Squires » Wed 13. Jun 2018, 16:22

Good afternoon. My name is Adam, and I am writing from America. I've been conducting research on family, and I've run into a bit of an international roadblock.

My great grandfather was Henry Le Daum. He was born in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Neuchatel, Switzerland in 1872. In 1888, he sailed for America, and was quite an interesting person. I have pretty detailed record of his life in America, but I know nothing of his family in Switzerland.

I believe his parents were Henri Daum and Ida (Lampart). I know that when he emigrated from Switzerland to the United States, he lived with his Uncle Gus. I believe this is Gustavis Johannes Daum, born 1864.

I've found some information in the local newspaper, and attempted to translate it from French to English, but that has not been much help.

I would love some information on the Daums, and maybe connect with some distant cousins.

Thank you, Adam

Good morning!

I'll give you the information for both Henry's, as I'm not sure which one you are asking about.

My great grandfather Henry Le Daum, was married to Mary Spires. She passed some time between 1945 and 1950, in Ohio.

My great great grandfather, Henri Daum, was married to Ida Lampart. According to the L'Impartial, and my translation depends on Google Translate, it appear she passed 6 August, 1889.

"Madame IDA DAUM, née LAMPART enlevée à leur affection, à l'âge de 35 ans six mois, après une courte et pénible maladie.La Chaux-de-Fonds, le 6 Août 1889. L'ensevelissement, auquel ils sont priés d'assister, aura lieu Jeudi s août à une heure après midi."

I hope this helps, or leads to more information.
