THE SWISS  LANDRY FAMILY LINE
 

ORIGIN, PROGENITORS AND PROGENY

There is a Landry family line or clan from Switzerland whose
progenitor is
Jean-Jacques Henri Landry, who established in Louisiana ca
1850. Jean Jacques
Henri Landry and Susanne Celestine Sandoz settled in St.
Martinville in the
1830s, and today, their progeny are concentrated in the
Lafayette, Louisiana
area.

I was fortunate enough to receive the following information
on the ancestors
of Jean Jacques Henri Landry from Sarah von Allmen at
sarah@angloswiss.net
who has a website on Swiss immigrants at:
http://angloswiss.net/

She provided me with the following genealogical succession:

1.  Jean Pierre Landry
======
2.  François Louis Landry, born Baulmes (canton of Vaud),
and confirmed at
Les Verrières, Christmas 1743.  Married Jeanne Marguerite
Besson at Les
Verrières on 30 April 1749.  François Louis' father was Jean
Pierre Landry.
===========
3.  Jean Jaques Landry, baptised at Les Verrières on 5 Sept
1756, and
confirmed at Couvet, Christmas 1774.  Married Susanne
Catherine Frasse at Les
Verrières on 13 June 1786.  Jean Jaques' parents were
François Louis Landry
and Jeanne Marguerite Besson (daughter of David).
==========
4.  Jean Jacques Henri Landry, born Les Verrières (canton of
Neuchâtel), 9
July 1789; confirmed 27 March 1807, both at Les Verrières).
Son of Jean
Jaques
Landry of Belle-Perche, church elder at Les Verrières, and
Susanne Catherine
Frasse (daughter of Jonas).  (JJH's brother, David Louis,
was a "gendarme"
in various villages of the canton of Neuchâtel.)

Following is what I had on this Landry line until then:
 

ORIGIN OF THE SWISS LANDRY FAMILY
HISTORICAL

Jean Jacques Henry Landry

    Then there are the Swiss Landrys of Louisiana whose
progenitors were Jean
Jacques Henry Landry son of Jean Jacques Landry and Susanne
Catherine Frasse
of the canton of Neuchatel, Switzerland, who according to
his passport, left
the canton of Neuchatel, Switzerland arrived in Philadelphia
in 1817 at age
27. Jean Jacques Henry was born sometime in 1790 in the
canton of Neuchatel,
Switzerland. He grew up in Switzerland where he was trained
to be a
wheelwright.  He left Switzerland and traveled to Amsterdam,
sometime before
1817, when according to his passport that is in the
possession of Ms. Orey B.
LaCoste of Lafayette, he arrived in Philadelphia to work as
a wheelwright.
    He married Susanne Celestine Sandoz, who was also a
native of the canton
of Neuchatel, Switzerland.   Suzanne was the daughter of
Jean Henri Sandoz
(Jean Jacques Sandoz and Sara Marguerite Diacon) and Suzanne
Amez Droz (Abram
Henri Droz de Villiers and Susanne Marguerite Maumary), of
Dombresson, canton
of Neuchatel, Switzerland, where she was born on 30
December, 1803.  She
arrived in America in 1829 with her parents and her 4
brothers.
    Jean and Suzanne settled in St. Martinville in the
1830s, and their
progeny are concentrated in the Lafayette, Louisiana area.
    The records assume that Jean Jacques Henri Landry and
Susanne Celestine
Sandoz made their home in Lafayette sometime in the early
30's.
