Mrs. Divine Violand, widow of the late John B. Violand, died Tuesday
morning, at the home of her son, Louis Violand, about three miles north west
of Louisville, paralysis being the cause of her death.
Mrs. Violand was born in Mandeure, France, about eighty two years ago.
In 1827, when she was but seven years of age, she came with her parents to
America. They located on the farm now owned by Simon Menegay. In 1841 she was
married to John B. Violand. Three sons and two daughters were born to them,
one son dying in infancy, a daughter, Mrs. Evrard, and her husband preceded
her in death a few years ago. Two sons and one daughter survive. They are
John and Louis Violand and Mrs. Dennis Reno, all living in the vicinity of
Louisville. Twenty-three grandchildren and a number of great-grandchildren,
Mrs. August Gladieux, of Missouri, a sister, and Mr. Simon Menegay, of
Louisville, a brother, also survive.
The funeral services were held at St. Louis Catholic church, this
(Thursday) morning, and owing to the absence of the pastor, Father Senner,
were conducted by Rev. Father Gardner, of Barryville. The remains were laid
to rest in the Catholic cemetery.
