Missing Relatives – USA

Below is a list of 16 relatives – great great grandchildren of Pierre, about whom we would like to receive additional information. As can be seen from the list, we do not have a recorded date of death for some and we have no information about descendants of any of them. Therefore, there could be relatives out there, we do not know about. If you know one of these persons and for example can provide a picture or information about descendants, we would like to hear about it.
