"Thank you for clearing that up, I had heard that story from my Grandfather Andrew and it was told to him by his father John Batiste Jerome and so it goes! Thanks again for your hours of work and information that you provide on the Jerome family."

"I believe that is only a 'family legend'.  In the research of the family tree that I have done, I have found no connection to the Bonaparte family.  I have heard the story before that there was a connection, but I believe it is a…"

"Ed, I was wondering by the information from this picture, that Andres brother was married to Napoleon Bonaparts sister. Is that true? Seeing that Napoleon was born in 1769 and died in 1821. There seems like an 80 year gap there. Could it be that it…"

Photo: Andrew Jerome - Jim Smith Family (About 1900)

A kind lady contacted me about a picture she found in a California antique mall.  Fortunately, she found my website about the Jerome Family and  offered me the picture for her cost.  It is in excellent condition.  What a find!  Based on the apparent size of my Uncle Julius, the boy in the photo, I estimate the picture…See More

Contribution

You will receive my contribution of $20 to help continue this activity. You have done a great job in creating this project, Glenn. It deserves to live. Sorry I didn't respond sooner. I just returned from a visit to New Orleans where I attended graduation activities for my nephew's daughter who graduated with highest honors from Tulane. Another star achiever among Andre Jerome's descendants.

Hey, you have been a busy guy Edward. Thanks for gathering in all the Jeromes. If you keep this up, and I know there are a lot of Jerome decendants, we might have to change the name to "The Jerome Clan". Keep up the good work.

I just noticed for the first time the link to the Jerome family web page on the Jerome family group. I intend to read it in full when I have a little more time but what I saw was impressive and a job well done.
When I have heard the name Andre Jerome mentioned at the Kittson County Historical Society it is usually coupled with the comment that "He was the first to Homestead in Kittson County". Next time I am at the museum I will dig up the data and add it to the Jerome Group. There are a few Jerome photos featured and I will photograph them for you just in case you do not have copies.

Thanks for getting back to me Ed, and for the best wishes on the move. It's happening as I type! I'm in a mostly empty house Bill is moving out of, helping him move his stuff to the farm. Next weekend he helps me move my stuff there. While going on a walk in Thief River Falls last night, I saw a street named JEROME STREET - did you know there was one called that in TRF? I assume it is in honor of the Jerome family...

Ed,
I want to mention another of Andre Jerome's descendents my niece, Anna French. She is the daughter of Rosemary Jerome French and Larry French, granddaughter of Ed and Ella Jerome, Hallock, MN. Ed was the son of Alexander, Alexander the son of Andre and Marguirete (sp?) Jerome. Anna graduated from Stanford University on June 13 with a degree in mechanical engineering.
