I am trying to follow the track of the Chaudanson family members that have emigrated to the US.
I found out on the Ellis island record that Louis Chaudanson lived in Lexington in 1904, when he was joined by his wife Francoise (36y) and their daughters Georgette (5y) and Antoinette (6y), who where accompanied by three children from a French Gilbert family (Jeanne; 17y, Marthe, 14y and Louis, 10y), as well as two sons of Marius Poudevigne (Leon, 9 and Gaston, 5), and a friend of Louis, Marius Polge (35).
In 1912, it seems that Louis was living on 311, S 25th or 23rd Street, when he was joined by his nephew André (25), and his friends Augustin and Elie Romagou, 35 and 25 years old. All of them were miners. After having searched for information on Lexington, I came to the conclusion that they came to work in the mines.
It seems that André was Victorine Chaudanson's younger brother. She was a Titanic survivor and stayed in the US where she married and had a son.
Has anyone information on these people, or know how I could get hold of some data? I would also be interested in finding some texts or books about life in Lexington at the time.
