Grandpa Richaud farmed. He had 100 acres. The first farm was on Planz road and sold the land for a high school to be built. They then had a farm on Gosford rd.  He died in 1968 . He had the out door bread oven when my Mother was a kid.  My Grandmother Lucienne and her twin Cecile lived to be almost 100 . Grandma was 96 and Auntie was 98 when they died. He had a type of grape that they put up , canned.   Grandpa had some sort of senility. He spoke a different accent then Grandma. I had one or two Aunts that spoke French but they have also died. There was a direct cousin in France that they used to correspond with .   They had kids Marie and Joseph who died from the flu , Claire, Louise,Simon, Theresina,Rosemary,Cecile(my mom) George. George and my Mom are the only ones living. Mom is 84 and George is in his 70’s.  There are a bunch of grand kids and gr gr grand kids now.  Grandpa made his way as a sheep herder and I heard that   it was over the swiss mtns. His nationality on the Ellis Island record is listed as Swiss French and that he came from Orcese.  The farm was sold a long time ago.  Si and George were in WW2.   Thats about it . He worked hard and loved his family.He had a very thick mustache.I can make a few words in French, but cannot speak nor write it.

Hello, I’ve not forget you!!!!You can use all data on mywebsite. if you want more help or some extracts from Archives of Pyrénées Atlantiques, I can work for you pleasure. I like looking for ancesters.About your Grandfather, you said  » He came on the La Bretagne from Favre ». First, I think it’s « Le Havre » and not « Fabre ». It’s not logic because our ancestrys leave near Bordeaux, most important port city. Le Havre could be the port of registry? I don’t know…The surname Cesnat exists +++ in South West of France.

I will like keep the contact. Ok ?
