I recommed this book. Alot of detail about wonderful industrial families of the Monongahela Valley. Hard working and a very strong people. I am proud to be a descendant.
I have the original brass
negative of the photo of my Great Grandfather Jerome M. Francois. He had another grandson, my father William J. Francois, who was born in Pennsylvania. Where Emil had moved after he left Carksburg West Virginia.
I have found a copy of all three volumes for sale, but at this time cannot afford it. I hope someday I can afford a copy. At least for now, I can read it here on the internet and also see a photo of my great grandfather.
Thank you,
Julie Francois
