Joseph Jesmer and Julia (Plamondon) Jesmer

Joseph Jesmer and Julia (Plamondon) Jesmer are my g-g-g-grandparents. Joseph is also known as  Joseph DuHAULT-JASMIN. Julia is also known as Julia (Juliette) Palmondon (PLUMONDON). It is hard for english people to translate french names. They are the ones who saw most of their family members emmigrate from Upper State New York to Minnesota. Later on Joseph joined them. He was living in the generation when the Jesmer name was being anglicized to from Jasmin to Jesmer. Here is the page to tell their story.

 Princeton Union 13 Nov 1878.  “Mr & Mrs Joseph Jesmer- the parents of all the Jesmers in this county- are out here on a visit.  Mr Jesmer is 70 years old, and as spry as lots of men are at 50.”

“Most of the pioneers (Bombay area) – merchants, millers, farmers and teachers – were men of energy, enterprise and rugged character, and nearly every one named had a noteworthy part in the town’s development and in administering its affairs. (p. 15)”
