  1. Hi, I am the daughter of August Blond (son of Florimond Blond). Germaine was Florimond’s second wife. Georgette, Irma, and Bertha were Germaine’s daughters from a previous marriage. My father had a sister, Josie, who died very young. I have photos of Rosie (Rose) and Josie’s graves I can email if you have an interest. Now I am wondering what relation I am to you. I’m very happy to have found your website.

  2. Hi, I am Shawn Blond, the son of Robert Blond, grandson of August Blond and great Grandson of Florimond Blond. Just happy to have come across this!

  3. I’m Jessica Schmiedbauer Dwyer. Daughter of Robert Blond, granddaughter of August Blond, great granddaughter of Florimond Jr.

    This is pretty cool!

  4. I think we are related. I just saw a picture of Sadie at me Uncle’s house Richard Blond. His brother was Robert Blond. They are the sons of Roselyn and Aurthor Blond. Does any of this sound familiar?
