1. Maurice ANDRÉ

Birth: 30 Aug 1782, Thônes, Savoie
Death: 1 Jul 1854, Sainte Genevieve, MO
Burial: 2 Jul 1854, Memorial Cemetery, Sainte Genevieve, MO
Father: Jean Jacques André (1754->1809)
Mother: Maurisaz Raimondine Clerc (1754->1809)

Maurice André was the second child of Jean Jacques André and Maurisaz Clerc. Born at noon on August 30, 1782, in Thônes, Savoie, he was baptized the same day by Cure Delachenal with Maurice Dupont and Marie Rey as his godparents.


An old postcard shows Thônes, Haute-Savoie,
which lies in the Alpine region of France, between Geneva and Albertville.

Nothing is known regarding when or why Maurice left Savoie or how he came to be part of an imperial household. He was often said to have been an "aide" to Marshall Duroc, Napoleon's Grand Marshall of the Palace. There are no records to show that Maurice served in any military capacity, however according to the records of his marriage to Caroline Sophie Charpentier, his occupation was "valet de pied" to Her Imperial Highness Princess Pauline, Napoleon's favorite sister. His residence was given as Pauline's home, the Chateau de Neuilly. Prior to that, he had lived at her home in Paris, Hotel de Charost, at Faubourg St. Honore no. 39. His wife, Sophie, was also a part of the household of  Princess Pauline. Maurice and Sophie were married in 1809 while in attendance at the Court. They were still living and working in the chateau when Caroline Sophie's brother, Louis Augustine Prince Charpentier, married in 1811. Maurice's occupation at that time was given as "porter.” Maurice declared that he was unable to sign his name on either of these marriage records, however Sophie signed her name to both.

The couple's first child, Pauline, was born in 1814 at the home of Maurice's father, Jean Jacques André, in Thônes. According to the birth records for Pauline, Sophie had been living there only six weeks when she gave birth. Maurice was absent when his first child arrived as he was in Naples, serving as chief valet to Princess Pauline, who was there visiting her sister, Caroline. Their brother, Napoleon, had just left for Elba. This infant Pauline lived less than a year. Another daughter born in 1819 was also given the name Pauline. It was a common practice in those days to name a child after an older sibling who had died.

Many people left Thônes in the mid-1840's because of the terrible conditions, including the famine that ravaged the area. Maurice and his son, Louis, were the first of the Andrés to come to America. They remained briefly in Louisiana on a plantation owned by Billon Delhommer until other members of the family joined them. In the Delhommer family history there is an Elizabeth Duclos de Celle. Her marriage took place near Fort Chartres in Illinois. These Duclos were related to those in Ste. Genevieve where there is also a connection to the Boyer family. Many of the ancestors of the Delhommers came from the Normandy region of France, the area where Sophie Charpentier's family lived and worked. Is there a connection between the Delhommers and the Andres?

Moving up the river the family put down roots in Ste. Genevieve, Missouri. At that time Sainte Genevieve was at the height of its prosperity. It would not be many years until St. Louis would overtake it, and Sainte Genevieve would become a small, quiet village. On April 5, 1851, Maurice and Caroline purchased a plot of land with a house and other buildings on the corner of Fourth and Jefferson Streets. They paid $600.00 to Eugene and Theresa Guibourd for their new home, which still stands and is now known as the Simon Hubardeau House. In 1852 Maurice and Caroline Sophie sold the house to their son, Louis, with the stipulation that they could live out their lives there. Louis was forced to sell the house to Louis Menard in 1858 for taxes of $155.00.


Thanks to Anne André Clark we have photographic copies
of an oil painting done of Maurice.

According to the Parish Burial Records, Maurice died of cholera in Sainte Genevieve, Missouri, just two days later his daughter, Pauline, also died of cholera. Maurice was buried July 2, 1854, in the old Memorial Cemetery.

Baptismal record:

"The year one thousand seven hundred eighty nine the twenty first of May, feast of the Ascension of Our Lord, was baptized at the font of this church, by me the undersigned priest, Caroline Sophie, born yesterday, of the legitimate marriage of Louis Charpentier, gardener at the Chateau of Montgobert, and of Marie Elisabeth Guillard. The godfather was Francois Charpentier, also gardener Rouen parish of Pisseleux, her uncle, the godmother Marie Louise Guillard, wife of Louis Potentier of the parish of Coeuvres who have signed with me this registry."

Caroline Sophie  was born on May 20, 1789, at Montgobert, Aisne, which lies north of Paris, in Picardy. Although there are no records of Sophie being a lady-in-waiting, she did live in the household of Princess Pauline. This is understandable for her family, the Charpentiers and the Guillards, had worked in the châteaux and abbeys in the area of Aisne for generations. Many were gardeners; some were household staff. The Chateau de Mongobert was built in 1756 by Desplasses, a solicitor to the king; it later belonged to Pauline Bonaparte.

On June 14, 1797, Pauline Bonaparte (1780-1825) was married to General Victor Emmanuel LeClerc in Milan. Returning to Paris in 1798 Leclerc purchased a home for Pauline on the rue de la Victoire. In addition they had the Chateau de Montgobert, in Aisne. After the death of General LeClerc Pauline purchased the Hotel de Charost on the rue de Faubourg St. Honore. (This building became the British Embassy after Napoleon's defeat at Waterloo.)

When Pauline settled in Paris, she had many of the furnishings and even plantings moved from Montgobert. It seems logical that her staff might have accompanied her also. Sophie’s brother, Louis, was part of the Princess’s household in Neuilly when he married in 1811. The wedding record shows that he was serving as “valet de chamber.”

Pauline enjoyed the summer of 1805 "in the country" at the Petit Trianon, and in 1806 went to Turin. Her court was known to have the loveliest ladies and the handsomest men. The colors Pauline chose for herself and the ladies of her household were lilac and silver. Pauline was often seen going from the Hotel de Charost to the Tuileries, with two footmen in green livery carrying her in a sedan chair.

Pauline's sister, Caroline, was married to Joachim Murat, the Governor of Paris. In 1804 Murat had purchased the Chateau de Neuilly. When Murat was made King of Naples Napoleon gave the chateau to Pauline.

"We were all," said the Duchess of Abrants, "at that time radiant with a sort of glory which women seek as eagerly as men do theirs, that of elegance and beauty. Among the young women composing the court of the Empress and that of the Princesses it would have been hard to find a single ill-favored woman, and there were very many whose beauty made, with no exaggeration, the greatest ornament of the festivities held every day in that fairy-like time."

In the memoirs Madame de Remusat it says, "Public opinion stigmatized the Princess Borghese; her conduct cast an unfortunate reflection upon the young and pretty women who formed her court."

Many years later in Ste. Genevieve, Captain Gustavus St. Gem told Annie Clark that Caroline "had the most beautiful legs and hands and figure of any woman he ever saw and that she was charming and clever." Considering that she was about 57 years old when she came to America from France, she must have really been something!

Caroline is listed in the 1860 Ste. Gen. census as "Sophie", aged 72. She was part of the household headed by her son, Louis.

From Ste. Genevieve, Missouri Church Burials, 1837 - 1883:
"1866 Aug 13   ANDRÉ, Caroline, no age given. Very old; born in France."

Sophie; her two daughters Jeanne, and the widowed Pauline Dufour; and three of Jean Jacques Louis' children appear in the passenger list of the ship, James N. Cooper, which arrived in New Orleans from Le Havre on Christmas Eve, 1846. The children were Maurice, Damien, and Philip. Regardless of some discrepancies in names and ages these do seem to be the correct records.

When the André family came to American from France they brought with them several items of jewelry. According to letters from the daughter of Dr. Maurice André, Anne Clark, to her cousin, Joseph Leon Vorst, Sophie carried them with her in a sack. Among these were: a necklace with blue sapphire stones surrounded by silver, a blue lapis locket, a locket with a picture of Sophie, and a blue enamel watch surrounded with pearls. It is unknown what became of these items. It is possible that the family sold these pieces when they fell on hard times. There was, also, a gold watch and chain presented to Maurice by Marshall Duroc, to which Princess Pauline added a heavy gold seal watch charm. This watch, at one time in the possession of Dr. Victor André, the son of Dr. Maurice André, is now owned by Patricia Childers. Patricia is the only grandchild of Anne André Wilder Johnson Clark. There were other pieces of jewelry and articles of clothing, which had belonged to the princess, in the possession of Louise André Dupont. Louise André Vorst had a few pieces of clothing that had been Sophie's. Anne Clark had in her possession a dress and an oil portrait of Maurice. During the forties she had photographic copies made of the picture for the family.

Marshall Duroc’s watch no longer marks the time for at some point it lost its hands.

1.1 Pauline ANDRÉ

Birth: 27 Jun 1814, Glappinger, Thônes
Death: 4 May 1815, Glappinger, Thônes

Marie Louise Pauline André was born in her paternal grandfather's home in Thônes, Haute-Savoie, on June 27, 1814. She was called Pauline, possibly in honor of Her Imperial Highness, the Princess Pauline, whom her parents had both served. At the time of her birth her mother, Sophie, had been in Thônes for only six weeks; her father, Maurice, was away in Naples. He had accompanied the princess to her sister's and brother-in-law's home with an over-night stop at Elba to visit the exiled Napoleon. The infant Pauline lived for less than a year.

Death: 10 Aug 1877, Sainte Genevieve, MO
Burial: 14 Aug 1877, Memorial Cemetery, Ste. Genevieve, Mo
(later moved to Valle Spring Cemetery)

The 1850 census shows that Maurice; Sophie; Jean Jacques Louis; his widowed sister, Pauline; and three of his children, the young Maurice, Damien and Philip, were living in Ste. Genevieve. The family had come to the states from France in 1846. Louis André owned property in Sainte Genevieve, Mo., as early as 1852. One of the properties was the stone house on the northeast corner of Fourth and Jefferson Streets now called the Simon Hubardeau House. This is where the family resided. The Burtcher brothers, Sebastian, Barthelemi and Michael, who were stonemasons, had built the house. (They later built the Felix Valle House.) Louis added the one story brick addition to the north side of the building.
By 1858, Maurice and Pauline had both died of cholera, and Marie Francoise Revillod and daughter, Louise, had come from France to join the family. At that time Louis was listed as a teamster. Tax records for Ste. Genevieve show that in 1861 Louis no longer owned real estate, as he had been forced to sell their home for taxes of $155.00. He did have some personal property for which he was taxed $70.00. His obituary in the Fair Play might help to explain:

"Died--On Tuesday the 11th inst at his residence in the city of Ste. Genevieve, Mr. Louis André, aged sixty years and 9 days.
"Mr. André was one of our oldest and most respected citizens. His only fault was that he was too kind hearted. At one period of his life he is said to have been in very good circumstances, but misfortunes and trusting too much to the honesty of others left him a poor man in his old age. His relations and friends have our heartfelt sympathy in their bereavement."

Jean Jacques Louis André was buried August 14, 1877. His body now lies with that of his wife in the André-Dupont plot in Valle Spring Cemetery in Sainte Genevieve.

1.2.1 Dr. Maurice ANDRÉ, M.D.

Birth: 30 Aug 1834, Thônes, Haute-Savoie
Death: 23 Jan 1914, Saint Louis, MO
Burial: André-Bernays plot, Valle Spring Cemetery, Ste. Gen., MO

Records show that Maurice was enrolled at St. Mary’s of the Barrens Seminary in Perryville, Missouri, in March of 1849, at the age of 14. He was naturalized on 11/29/1855 in Ste. Genevieve. Maurice graduated from Washington University Medical School in St. Louis, MO, in 1866. He practiced medicine in Ste. Genevieve until about two years before his death, when he moved to St. Louis. He died there in a hospital at the age of 79. He served as president of the Ste. Genevieve Medical Society, and was a "Forty-Niner" (?). He was a member of the Ste. Genevieve Camp Modern Woodmen of America. His office was on the southwest corner of Main and Merchant Streets.

In 1863 Maurice had a liaison with a slave named Jane. From this relationship there was a son, Charles Edward André, born on December 8, 1863. After the age of seven Charles Edward lived with the André family serving as a houseboy. In return he was tutored in music and literature. When he was thirteen he left the family and went to work as a musician playing on riverboats on the Mississippi.

Dr. André delivered Anna and Vi Vorst, the daughters of Joseph and Jennie Vorst. According to Anna Thomure, it was because their mother believed that Dr. André was "the best at bringing babies into the world."

Root envisioned a self-governing society whose members came from local camps (lodges) across America. The lodge system, which remains in effect today, nurtures community spirit by bringing families together for wholesome, social, recreational and service activities."

Death: 19 Jul 1948, Nampa, Idaho

Charles “Ed” André was born of a liaison between Maurice André and a slave, Jane Woods, prior to Maurice’s marriage to Clementine Bernays. Jane later married John Arthur. Charles was baptized 2/3/1864.

"Charles Edward André lived with Maurice André from the approx ages 7 - 13 years at which time he served the family as a house boy. In return he was educated in literature and music. Because of the difficulties he endured in the home and feelings of inequality he left Missouri at the age of 13. Edward worked on riverboats as a musician (violinist) to support himself in the following years." Kathryn Greene-Grant, descendant of Charles.

1.2.3 Damien ANDRÉ

Birth: 1 Apr 1837, Thônes, Haute-Savoie
Death: 25 Mar 1880, Sainte Genevieve, MO
Burial: 1880, Memorial Cemetery, Ste. Genevieve, MO
(later moved to Valle Spring)

Damien André was the third son of Jean Jacques Louis André and Marie Francois Revillod. Born in Thônes, on April 1, 1837, he was baptized the following day in their parish church, Eglise de St. Maurice. Jacques André, a cousin, and Jacques' wife, Christine Dupont, were Damien's godparents.
Damien was the grandson of Maurice André and Caroline Sophie Charpentier, who along with most of their family left France for America in 1846. He arrived in New Orleans on Christmas Eve on the ship James N. Cooper. From there they traveled up the Mississippi River to Sainte Genevieve, Missouri.

On December 28, 1858 Damien paid his father, Louis, $200.00 for goods that included a black and white cow about twelve years old, a cow without horns about six years old, a heifer about two years old, a calf about seven months old, a cart and wheels, two cart bodies, a toilet bureau, a wardrobe, four bedsteads, a large cooking stove with utensils, a parlor stove, two sets of wagon harness, a set of cart harness, a ladies riding saddle, a turning lathe with all the tools, two clocks and a large cross-cut saw.  

Damien became a naturalized citizen of the United States, on November 8, 1859, renouncing all allegiance to France. Charles C. Rozier, Clerk of the Circuit Court in Ste. Genevieve, administered the oath.

The 1860 census listed Damien's occupation as "farmer". Tax records for 1861 show that he owned no real estate at that time but did have other personal property valued at $20.00 for which he was taxed $10.00. Ten years later the 1870 census gave his occupation as "teamster".

Damien's first wife was Mary Frances Frechet, the daughter of John Frechet and Mary Zelina Winston. They were married on November 22, 1864, at her father's house. Evarist Dupont and Francis Bidant were the witnesses. Mary Frances died less than a year later.

On December 29, 1874, Damien married Julia Margaret Hauck. Father Xavier Weiss conducted the ceremony at the bride's home. Two daughters, Mary and Louise, were born to this union.

Damien died at 9:40 pm on March 25, 1880. The cause of death was given as consumption. Not quite forty-four years old he died intestate, leaving his wife and the two young girls. John L. Bogy, Judge of the Probate Court, appointed Louis Naumann administrator of Damien’s estate. Several plots of land were sold by Julia and the estate, including some along Market Street between Fourth and Fifth Streets in what is known as Block #25.

A newspaper article that was accompanied by a photo:
"Mrs. Leon C. Vorst, nee Louise André, in the costume which she will wear during the coming Art Tour.  Mrs. Vorst will portray her great-grandmother, Caroline Carpentier, a favorite at the imperial court of Napoleon and special lady-in-waiting to her Imperial Highness, the Princess Pauline, sister of the Emperor.  While she held the honored position of lady-in waiting, her engagement to Maurice André, also a favorite of the Emperor, was announced and their wedding took place while they were still in attendance at the Court.  Among priceless mementoes held by their descendants are a dress which belonged to the Princess Pauline, a gold watch presented to Maurice André by Napoleon's general, Marshal Duroc, jewelry given by the Princess Pauline to her lady-in-waiting, and a coat, which were brought to America by Caroline and Maurice André after the abdication of Napoleon and have been carefully preserved by the André and Dupont families.  Mrs. Vorst, who will wear a costume of black silk, brocaded cashmere and lace, will assist in greeting the guests visiting the Felix Valle House where her great-grandmother spent much time with her close friend, Mama Valle."

Birth: 28 Apr 1840, Thônes, Haute-Savoie
Death: 2 Apr 1909, Springfield, MO

Phillip was born In Thônes on April 28, 1840. He came to the U. S. with his family in 1846. The 1860 Census states that Phillip was an apprentice carpenter. In 1863, he was in partnership with Augustus Bequette and Charles Lalumondiere, a blacksmith.

On January 18, 1876, in Sainte Genevieve County, Mo, Phillip married Louise Delarville, the daughter of Leopold Delarville and Virginia Langelier. Louise was born in France in January of 1855. They had three children: Jean Louis Valentine (1877-1877), Francis James (1878-1954) and Alice Virginia Mary (1883-?)
There is a Philip André apparently living in a boarding house in Springfield, MO, and working as a house carpenter, listed in the census for 1870.

In 1880 the census has Philip, Louise, and Francis living in Ste. Genevieve.
The census for 1900 lists Louise as married, head of household in Springfield, MO, where was Philip? The Springfield City Directory for 1905 shows a Philip André living at 1103 E. Dale. He was a laborer for Frisco System North Side Shops. “The Frisco machine shop, erected in 1873, was the principal institution of North Springfield employing one hundred and seventy men and turning out over a hundred new cars in addition to keeping up repairs on three hundred and sixty-three miles of road.” Source: Past and Present of Greene County, Missouri. The Ste. Genevieve Herald says he died “at home.” Presumably that was Springfield, MO.
