Siblings Jean Baptiste Bavier, Marie Bavier and Zelia Flores Bavier Daniaux

Siblings Jean Baptiste Bavier, Marie Bavier and Zelia Flores Bavier (along with Zelia’s family, husband Henri Daniaux and children Henry, Alexedie?, and Fidele) departed from the port at Antwerpen, Belgium aboard the steamship SS Illinois bound for America. They arrived at the port in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on December 11, 1892 with their ultimate destination as Weir City, Kansas. Note: Marie Bavier was traveling as a “domestic” with the Daniaux family. This designation would give her a purpose to come to America.

  1. In the fifth generation picture, the baby Lorena Kafka Swindell is holding is Judy Swindell Beam Eden, great-grandaughter of Sophie Blond Bavier.

  2. The information from the 5oth wedding anniversary for Fernie Bavier is incorrect. He was not married to Blanche Ranwez. He was married to Goldie Burge.

  3. I have the picture of Joe and Angeline (Angelique) Kafka hanging on my living room wall. I am going to send it to you by email. (circa 1919-20)

  4. I am studying the coal-miners who emigrated from France and Belgium to the the USA. (Daniaux, Bavier, Langerot, etc…). If you are interested, send me an e-mail.
    Regards,
    Jean-Luc Coubronne (Northern France)
