Donjon Family Genealogy Forum
Looking for information about John [Jean] Donjon born Oct 19, 1826 near or in Lyon, France. He moved to Prairie du Rocher, Randolph Co., IL where he married Louise Collignon 1839-1896 who was born in Liepvre, Haut-Rhin, France.
John Donjon's church death record says his father was Jean Donjon and mother Louise Chahille [sp?}. Have not found that surname in france. Perhaps it is Cahill [?].
John Donjon lived briefly in St. Louis, MO before moving to IL. There, he is supposed to have married a woman by the last name of Fairchild who died young, without children. Anyone knowing abt this angle, I would appreciate hearing from you.
