Victor and his father Paul were born and died in Kansas.Paul was the 6th of 13 children of Charles Ulysses "Willis" Botteron and Josephine Thomas.
Charles Ulysses was born in 1868 in France or Switzerland (apparently the border shifted) and died in 1925 in Missouri.He immigrated as a child with his parents, Charles Auguste Botteron Jr. and Eliza (---) who were born in Switzerland.
I can't be positive that we are related, because the earlier records are incomplete, but the Botterons come from a small area of Switzerland (around Nods) so it is likely that all are related.
