I am researching the Family of August Francois Ferdinand Gleyre. I am interested in the other descendants from Marc Louis Gleyre and Jeanne?of the village Chevilly,Rolle,Switzerland. The were French refugees.I have done some research on all the children after their arrival to America. The family came up th Mississippi from New Orleans to settle in Highland,Illinois. In 1850 they appeared on the census. August was listed as a tinsmith. We have located the original property of the residence/shop. There were also several acres of farmland. I have contact with 3 descendants of the original children. There is much more to learn.
