ROBERT E. KAMMERMANN WINNING DISTINCTION IN WORLD OF
SPORTS-----
Above is a picture of Robert E. Kammermann, a Forrest boy, who is rapidly forging to the front as a wrestler and boxer.
During the past two or three weeks his achievements have attracted the attention of promoters and sport writers in these
two divisions of athletics. In short, he has proven himself nothing short of a wonder, never having met defeat, although he
has met men heavier that he, in some cases as much as 70 pounds. His ability was shown when he defeated George
Chinski of Kankakee, Ill., at Odell, Ill., a week ago last Monday.        The big Polock wants a return match, at Kankakee,
thinking that he may be able to bar all bad holds and defeat the Forrest man, but he will be badly surprised one more.
September 7 Kammermann met Willie the Wonder, in a 5-minute handicap match, also fought Joe Masters three rounds,
gaining the decision.
September 8 he defeated Willie the Wonder in one minute and 15 seconds of a finish match, and wrestled Big Chief
Monmont, a 230 pounder, 5 minutes to a draw in a handicap match.
September 9 he wrestled the Big Chief, who is the heavyweight champion of Canada, and defeated him in two minutes and
40 seconds, with a toe hold, which was too much for the big Indian. Kammermann was too fast and slippery for the big
chief, and would have taken him on and defeated him in a six-round boxing contest, but he would not put on the gloves.
Kammermann was offered the management oof the athletic show by the Morrise & Castle Carnival company, but turned
it down.        Also he has offers to travel with two other shows and do the wrestling, a showman having taken a
day off to hold a conference with the local boy and witness his performance on the mat and to make him an offer.
Kammermann now holds the heavyweight championship of Canada.
(Eric Kammermann note- Years later in the 1960's while traveling with my family we stopped in Duluth, Minn.        We
were staying at the Hotel Duluth. Dad went down to the bar and was conversing with the Bartender about the area when
an intoxicated big, older Native American man started yelling "I'm Big Chief Monmont, I'll wrestle anyman here, I've
never been beaten." Well my Dad, never afraid of any one or any thing, walked to the end of the bar and said "Your
either a liar or have a bad memory.        A man from Forrest, Illinois kicked your ass and I saw him do it, remember Bob
Kammermann."        At that the Big Chief laughed and said,"Yes sir, he sure did." Dad and the big man sat and talked
for awhile over a drink and then Dad left to get Mom, Cindy, and I to
introduce us, but by the time we got their the Chief had left. Dad always loved
telling that story.)
BOXING CARDS PLANNED HERE-----FIRST PROGRAM WILL BE PRESENTED NOVEMBER 15 AT M.P. ATHLETIC
CLUB.
Arrangements are now being perfected for a series of athletic cards to be presented here during the winter months.
The first, a boxing and wrestling event with many fast bouts, will be presented on the evening of Friday, Nov. 15, next. The
evenings program will start at 8 o'clock and will be sponsored by the local Missouri P__(?)___ Athletic Club.
Fred Reed, local mat artist and brother Jake Reed, champion wrestler of this state for several years, and Bob
Kammermann, Police Gazette champion of Chicago Ill., will meet in the feature number of the card, a wrestling
match.        30 minutes to the fall.
The main boxing event will witness Paul Schneider, pugilist of this city, and Lefty Buckner of Tulsa, Okla., in a six round
bout. The semi-windup will be between Kid Kerr of Sedalia and Kid Alfred of Jefferson City.
As a preliminary Battling Scruggs and Bud Hemmel will battle in a four round affair.
The admission price will be $1.
(Eric Kammermann note- Dad also told the story of Grandpas bout with Jumpin Joe Savoldi, one of Knute Rocknes early
stars at Notre Dame.        Savoldi got his nickname because his style was two footed high kicks, knocking the opponent
down. When Jumpin Joe met Grandpa the round 1 bell rang, Savoldi came out, jumped in the air kicking and sent
Kammermann flying backwards and down. Kammermann got back up, Savoldi jumped again knocking Kammermann
back down again. Kammermann stood back up, it was told that everyone close to the ring could see the fire glint in his
eyes as Savoldi jumped a third time. Kammermann side stepped, grabbed one of Savoldis legs, bringing it down across his
thigh, snapping Savoldis bone like a twig.        The bout lasted approximately 40 seconds. Kammermann told Savoldi "we
were here to wrestle not jump up and down". Bob Kammermann was not to be trifled with.        Savoldi was later kicked of
the Notre Dame team because as the Bloomington Daily Pantagraph wrote in Youngs Yarns 1972, "he had taken unto
himself a helpmate".
Bob Kammermann also traded blows with and defeated Walter Evans 1923 University of Illinois wrestling coach, Big Jim
McMillen, captain of the 1923 Illini championship team, Mike Reed, a highly ranked Chicagoan, Walter Keegan,
Chicago Police Gazette Champion, and Sam Bondouris, the Chicago Greek
Champion.)

YOUNG'S YARNS
FORREST-They like to turn the clock back here in this Livingston County village to the days when The Blue Banner
stopped to pick up a good delegation of Forrest people, and Marion (Benny) Leonard and Burt Dancey gave this city a state
track title. And likewise, Forrest once was the pro wrestling hangout of
Central Illinois.
Robert (Bob) Kammermann, a Forrest boy, challenged the world at 160 pounds, not only defeating the Canadian
welterweight champion but he also traded blows with "Jumping Joe" Savoldi, one of Knute Rockne's early stars, who was
finally barred from playing football at the school with the big gold dome because he had taken unto himself a helpmate.
University of Illinois also figured in Forrest's wrestling program, for Walter Evans, then wrestling coach at the state
school, and big Jim McMillen, captian of the 1923 championship Illini also traded holds with Kammermann. McMillen's
first pro appearance was against Bob at the Fairbury Fair Grounds.
Kammermann's victory over Big Chief Monmont, the Canadian champion was scored ty means of a toe hold.
The Forrest grappler also tried his hand at boxing and several times appeared on the same card both as a wrestler and as a
boxer.
Some of Bob's victims included Walter Keegan, holder of the Police Gazette's championship; Sam Bondouris, the Greek
champion of Chicago and Mike Reed, another highly ranked Chicagoan.
So big a name did the Forrest lad's become, that eventually he had a 'gymnasium' of his own, and outdoor ring and
bleachers, a pot-bellied stove, rest rooms, punching bag, dumbells and Indian club, and this little city became a hangout
for wrestlers and would-be wrestlers from all sectors of the country. The old B&J hotel here was crowded many times in
that era with followers of the sport, and grapplers working out in the Kammermann "gym".
They'll tell you here that there were few equals to their pride and joy because he was fast and slippery.
He once took on George (Slim) Zeller of Weston, who tipped the scales at 350 pounds and handled him in good shape.
His son, Paul still resides at 411 E. Oak, Fairbury, longtime member of Eskimo sports teams.

GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN
By Kaley Keeley
December 1998
Stories are often told of men who possess superhuman strength and courage. Paul Bunyon and Superman are a few. While
these men may be fictional, Robert Emil Kammermann was not.
Robert Kammermann was born on February 25, 1894, northeast of Forrest, Illinois. Kammermann was not a normal child.
He was fearless. Throughout his life, he accomplished things few others ever could.
He would win the World Heavyweight Boxing Championship in Canada. "His opponents feared him," Eric Kammermann
said. "This was a man who did not know what pain or fear was."
"This man had an extremely high pain tolerance," agrees Cynthia Kammermann-Keeley.        "I recall the story where he
was gored by a bull. He just went home and sewed himself up."
Sounds hard to believe? Well, in a picture of Robert Kammermann the scar that stretches from his groin to his ribcage is
extremely noticeable.
"I can still remember all the stories my dad used to tell me about my grandpa," said Cynthia.
Robert Kammermann boxed and wrestled all over the United States. He would travel with numerous other athletes to
compete in competitions. It was often referred to as a "circus show."
According to Eric, Kammermann was the Chicago Police Gazette Champion where he defeated Jumping Joe Savalde by
breaking his leg.
Kammermann trained in Forrest. A ring was set up out in the barnyard. Many times Kammermann's friends would come
for the summer to take part in an extensive training program.
"Boxing and wrestling back in the early 1900's was not like it is today," said
      Cynthia.        "The men did not wear gloves and there were no officials."
Many times these matches were played out until the opponent was either unconcscious or dead.
Kammermann was a world challenger. He would battle anyone in the world between 145-200 lbs. "Men would come from
all over just to fight him," Eric said.
Along with boxing and wrestling, Kammermann played on a semi-pro football team called the Forrest Comets. According
to Eric, during one summer Benny Leonard from the University of Illinois brought Red Grange to play football with the
team.
"My grandpa played football right beside the 'galloping ghost,' who went on to play for the Bears," said Cynthia.
Kammermann served his community well.        He was appointed Deputy Sheriff of Livingston County.
"If there was anything to be done in the community, he would volunteer," said Cynthia.
There were times when new water wells needed to be dug. Most of the men feared this job because of the possibility of the
well collapsing.
"He would go down into the well without even hesitating," said Eric.
Although his adventurous spirit never held him back, Robert Emil Kammermann eventually died at the age of 54 from
stomach cancer. He never did show any signs of suffering.
This man's personality can definitely be summed up in one word - fearless.
"In my opinion Robert Emil Kammermann ranks right up there with Superman, and he will never be forgotten," said
Cynthia.

Funeral Sermon delivered for Mrs. Christina Kammermann April 3rd, 1933.
By Rev. F.M. Bunge, Chenoa, Ill. (Ev. Lutheran)
--------------------------------------------
Text: John 19: 26 and 27. " When Jesus therefrore saw His
mother, and the disciple standing by, whom He loved, He said to His mother, "Woman, behold thy son!" Then saith he to
the disciple, "Behold they mother".
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Springtime with all its' beauty is with us again. The grass is
covering mother earth with a carpet of green and here and there the earliest flowers are making their appearance. Trees
are sending forth their little leaflets and the songs of birds fills the air with sweet music. Wherever we look we see signs
of awakening life.
But in the midst of all of this new life, death has made his
sovereign power to be felt, for every season of the year is harvest season for death. Not only has death entered into our
midst in the Spring of the year, but also in the sacred season of Lent; that part of the church year when we stand under
the cross of the suffering Savior and realize as nowhere else the price of our salvation. What text could therefore be more
appropriate than the one we have selected; expecially when we consider that a mother has been called from the land of the
living.
Our text takes us back 1900 years ago to a "green hill far away, Where the dear Lord was crucified". On the cross we see
the Savior of mankind, rejected of men, who cried, "Crucify him, crucify him", suspended between heaven and earth. He
wears a crown of thorns that ours may be the crown of salvation. He takes upon Himself most painful punishment that we
may not stare eternal damnation in the face. His heart is pierced that we might see in His open heart the wondrous
message of God's love to fallen mankind. The Savior goes into death willingly and voluntarily that we might be sure of
everlasting life. And as He hangs there suffering excruciating pains, He thinks not of Himself. First He thinks of those
who demanded that He should thus on the tree of the cross meet death, and He prays to the Father, "Father, forgive
them, for they know not what they do". Then He assures to the thief on His right hand, "Today thou shalt be with me in
paradise".
Below the cross stands Mary, the mother of Jesus. 'Tis now
Mary,
that a prophesy of long ago is being fulfilled. Thirty years before she brought her son into the temple, to present Him
there according to Jewish law. The aged Simeon takes the child upon his arms and does not only praise God that now he
has seen God's salvation, but he turns to Mary with the words, "A sword shall pierce thy soul". Little did Mary then
understand or comprehend the hidden meaning of these ominous words. Many a time and oft she recalled what Simeon
had said. But up to the present time they still remained a mystery. But now when she stands under the cross she
understands perfectly. 'Twas not to be the sword of a ruthless Roman soldier which would speedily bring about her death,
but the sword of suffering and agony under the cross of her Son and Savior, Who was undergoing pains beyond
description. His pains were also hers. Whenthe nails were driven through His hands and feet, it was as though they were
driven through her own.        The crown of thorns pierced not only the head of Christ, but also that of His mother. Jesus
was aware of this fact and when therefore He opens His mouth again to speak, He says, "Woman, behold thy son". Even
on His deathbed of a thousand pains, Christ forgets not His mother, but sees that she is taken care of the remainder of
her life. Truly, He was a grateful Son!
Does not this story remind you of your mother? For you she went through her Gethsemane of suffering when she gave
you life. Who can count the sleepless hours of night she spent when you were ill? What worries we cause our parents
before we are in a position to care for ourselves! This is doubly true when we consider that for over 30 years the deceased
has taken upon herself the duties of rearing her children alone after the death of her husband. It was not an easy task.
But with the help of God she succeeded. And I am sure that even up to the time of her death, you sought advice from here
on more occasion than one. In this connection I wish to say that a mother who has succeded in rearing a family of twelve
fine children has done more for our nation than any of the society women who, preferring a life of ease in politics or social
circles, refuse to take upon themselves the responsibilities of motherhood. Our communities as well as our nation owes
real mothers a great debt of gratitude which can never be paid. May we at this time pay a part at least of this gratitude to
our deceased sister in Christ by recalling what she has done for us not only as a mother, but also as a citizen of out
community and nation. How true the wordsof the poet who says,
Her arms, my cradle undergirt with tireless care,
Her ears, the open door to every sigh and cry
Her brow, deep furrowed with the toil of years gone by,
Her lips, the first to kiss, to bless in prayer,
Her hair, with silvered threads, agleam with radience rare, Her eyes, the depthless well of love that cannot die. Her face,
uplifted with light of heaven's highest sky, Her heart, the throbbing life of God:
Mother, who bare'
My mother, thou art all of this and more,
Than tongue can ever tell or ears receive or heart, Thou art my mother, That is more than all on earth, Besides. What
though I shall say farewell to thee today?
I love thee still. Death does not part. Deathless in love and life:
Mother, thou gav'st me birth!
Surely, we all agree that no one on earth can do more for us or will do more for us than our mothers. But there is One,
Who has shown more love to us and brought more sacrifice for us than any mother who ever lived upon this sin-stained
earth. Our text takes us to this One - the Savior on the cross. As we stand under the cross, we have reasons to ask the
question,
"Why the cross?"
In answer to this question we would answer that on the cross
we see the most wonderful manifestation of God's love. We realize that God is willing to go the very limit to prove his
love; not only in words, but also in deeds. willing        go        very        prove        only
As we stand under the cross we look into the very heart of God and see written therein in letters of purest gold, "God is
love". And if wver we think we have reasons to doubt this love of God, let us return again and again to the cross and all
doubt concerning God's love to us will vanish as snow in summer's hottest heat.
Under the cross we understand as nowhere else that we are
bought free from Satan, sin and everlasting death and that through faith in the Savior our departed sister had hopes of
life everlasting.
As we stand under the cross we see the stain of our sins
removed. No one else was good enough to pay the price of sin. It took the very blood of the Son of God Himself to bring
about an open door to the Father. "The blood of Jesus Christ cleanseth us from all sins" and through the red blood of the
Savior our red stains of sin are white in the eyes of the Eternal Father. Under the cross we begin to realize our infinite
value to the Father; we know that we are precious in His sight, because of the great price He paid to set us free from
Satan, sin and everlasting death. Some pride themselves because their forefathers came over on the Mayflower; others
boast about their riches and a third class may have a superiority complex because they own many acres of land. But under
the cross we KNOW that we belong to the aristocracy of God's children. Under the cross we know that we are heirs of the
Kingdom of God; that riches are ours, which none can ever take away, nor moths nor rust destroy. How wonderful to stand
under the cross and understand how much Christ has done for us - even more than the best mother on earth could ever
hope to do.
In this your hour of sorrow I would suggest that you near the
cross of Christ, in order that Christ may take the place of your mother. And as the spirit of Christ fills your hearts, it will
heal the wounds caused by your present sorrow.        You will look forward to the time when you will be united with all
those who have gone before in faith in Christ; never to part again.
May we all, in this sacred season of Lent come nearer the
cross and there come to the conclusion that faith in Christ is the one thing which really counts - here in life and in
eternity. Amid the toppling towers of crumbling temples of money, wisom and invention there stands supreme the cross of
Christ with its' message to the present world.        May that be a message to us also, "Come unto me all ye that are weary
and heavy laden, and I will give you rest". May the Suffering Savior be our constant Friend here in time, as well as in the
hour of death and in eternity! Then we will not have lived in vain, for we have then lived for the honor of God and the
welfare of our immortal soul.

Notes for Clarence Kammermann:
[Kammermann Family Tree.FTW]
Clarence was an attorney in Chicago, Illinois and would come down to the homeplace in Forrest on weekends where he
would meet his surviving brothers, Al and his daughter Dorothy also from Chicago, Cree and his wife from Forrest, and
Harry and his wife Olive from Decatur, to try to maintain it in memory of their mother and father. They would weed, and
mow, and paint, and patch, all day Saturday and Sunday. The women would cook lunches and dinner, cleaning the house.
Aunt Rosalyn took special pride in keeping the outhouse tastefully wallpapered. My Dad, John Paul Kammermann would
never miss a weekend going over to help his Uncles and Mom, Cindy, and I would have to go also. Uncle Al would sit on
the backporch and talk to Cindy and I, always finding a half dollar to send us to the corner store for a pop. Aunt Rosalyn
introduced us to our first Black Cow and many more after that. Uncle Al was always the sweetest and friendliest of the
group to my sister and I. He had only one arm, losing
the other as a child in an accident. He still managed to roll his own cigarettes one handed. I remember Cree having no
fingers on one hand, just a thumb, funny what a child remembers.        In later years it was only Dad and I and Uncle
Clarence mowing and weeding on weekends. Then just Dad and Uncle Clarence and finally Cindy's husband Joe Keeley
inherited the mowing job at the home place. Sadly, upon Uncle Clarence's and Dads passing the place was torn down and
sold. I still remember that frosty cold Black Cow at the kitchen table with Aunt Rosalyn.(J.
Eric Kammermann)

6/22/77 Dear Kids:
Now that summer is here, I hope that I may stay around to see all the ones I hold dear, and in return, I trust they will
beware, take care of their health, and everything else to keep intact our Kammermann Family.
I am going to have blood tests, and another examination this week, & if the Lord is willing , Dorothy will take us to
Forrest this Saturday to stay until Monday.
Yesterday, Dorothy took me to my office for a few hours. I ran into many notes & things which were expression of my
mood or event in my life, many of which I had sent to brother Harry after out trio was broken when brother Bob left
Harry & me.        So I have enclosed some sort of copies which may indicate to you that your old Uncle and the last of our
line was not always the hard, sober worker.
My wife, while not a full blood swiss, but enjoys being part of us all, wants you to know her feelings are much the same as
mine and hopes that out younger generation accepts her as one of our Swiss Family.
Hope both of you are feeling better.
Uncle Clarence Aunt Roslyn
Below are three items (poems, letter) that Clarence wrote to his brother Harry and sent to Dad , I have tried to type it as
it appears to be written (J. Eric Kammermann):
Dear Brother:
It's been a long timesince we roamed the old barnyard together
Pulled each other up on the derrick in all kinds of weather.
It's all too quiet now.
No cows, no horses, no pigs, no chickens or other noise to keep the interest of we healthy boys
There was the time on one dark night
You shook the chicken with all your might in the face of brother Bob & I when we rushed to the chicken coop to save its
life.
Again the day we went to Egnis pasture When the old bull took after me.
But good old Mungo our faithful dog and all our trouble knows appeared and grabbed the bull by the nose. I raced through
the pasture and cleared the fence without a rent in my britches that would have required mothers stitches.
Another time when you were milking Kracks high kickin cow, its all so vivid now, wow, how she kicked you and slammed
you, but couldn't keep you down, you crawled to her head and calmed her down.
Then there was the time on the old milk rout when Feriate Maize assured us about his dog "she no bite"! but we could feel
her hot breath and see her flashing teeth to send us dashing
down the street
Last but not least
You sent me, an innocent boy, to deliver milk to old killjoy Mrs Butler & collect the ticket; you stayed in the shelter of
the old milk wagon as the old dragon stormed and raved about the no good Kraut hiding in the wagon.
There were many more pleasures we could recall together such as in the alley behing our barn
I left the bail of hay fall off the buggy It hit old Mollies rump as you started to jump, then down the alley she went and
ended up with the shaft all bent.
Then there was the time we tied her head to the feed bars ahead & you stood on the manger with chisel bar and file to fix
her sharp tooth so she could eat; you jabbed the bar on her tooth and old Mollie raised the roof she threw her front hoofs
up in the air; we really must have aged a year right there. At least we gave up denistry right there.
Well, the old place is silent now where we romped and played, where Mother worked, where Mother prayed, the Home she
made, and the Family she raised.
I oft have wondered with many regrets if we could turn back to those days of love of Family, those days of pleasure.
Now as the years have come and gone, the twilight days draw nearer, I will always remember those pleasant days together
so I bid you a Birthday that is Happy for you dear brother Harry.
*************************************************************************
****************************************
Though the years have gone so fast
Yet the memories of the Joys long past, of our Mother so proud and true prayed at Xmas and all year        through.
You remember the green xmas tree, the colored pop corn & cranberries on strings to see, with little        candles so we
could light up the tree.
Then there were candies and chestnuts too, but the thing I like to remember last is the xmas bread
the birds and animals, and other cookies too that Dad and Mother made like new for Santa Claus to put under the xmas
tree.
It was as twighlight came with Father gone she rose & sang
Silent night, & I knew in my childhood glee that she was proud as she could be of her boys and girls
no. 9 and three.
But now Father & Mother are gone & their daughters are now
2 and boys but 3 to gather round the old xmas tree.
*************************************************************************
****************************************
Just Day Dreaming
Brother
Of the days we are apt to forget
Until the years bring regrets
Of the pleasures we no longer get
Your curves brother Bob used to catch
Because the batter missed the ball
And I the outfielder had no chance at all
The football training with all our might on Saturday
Afternoon and night under Krack's
Street lights,
Then you and I out carpenter's skill tried
But Mother knew with such skill
We could not hope to survive
So off to the world of transportation
You went, Chicago to St. Louis and back again you went
And I to the years in school I spent
No longer could we share together
The Krack's old ball diamond
Or Egniss swimming hole
Because the years were setting our goal
How often I gazed out the school house window,
Feeling lonesome and blue downhearted yes
For a friendly face, its true
For a brother who sensed
I needed his presence & strong hand embrace.
There you would lie out on the grass
So apparently care free
And waiting for my class time to pass
We met so casual as only Kammermann
Brothers do, although they are now so few
None could detect the affection of we two
You took me to the diner, my stomach to fill
To get me away from the weiners & swill
Then back to the world of transportation
You go, St. Louis, Chicago and Decatur For rest.
And I to delve in the books on the shelf Though Through the years our separate work We have done.
I am sure we will always remember Our boy hood fun.
So have a happy birthday brother of mine
For the affection and pride I hold for you Is rarer than fine wine
You cannot always find.
alias Abe The Wood Chopper

Notes for Frances Jules Lamboley: [Kammermann Family Tree.FTW]
Frances and his brother (who, thanks to you, I now know was named Harry)! came to America alone together. Esther told
me that their father had taken ("stolen") the two boys from their mother and that they did not want to remain with him,
so the older brother (Harry) took Frances "under his wing" and together they left France for America.
(Esther told me that they were from "New Paris," France...Picardy, perhaps?)
Hello Eric,
I just downloaded the photos that you sent me and I want to thank you so very, very much. How wonderful it is to have
these photos!        I am sorry that I couldn't respond earlier, but for the past several days I have been on the go and also
babysitting for my three grandchildren.
I was so excited to see Great-Grandfather Frances and his brother Harry and Esther Virginia and all the other relatives.
These photographs mean very much to me. My father will be returning to my house tomorrow (from my sister's home)
and I can't wait to see the expression on his face when I show him what you sent us. He will truly be surprised and will be
very happy to be able to see both pictures of his family.        I want to make sure that I know which person in the photo is
his grandfather and which person is his Uncle
Harry.        Can you tell me, is his Grandfather Frances the gentleman on the left (who is of taller and larger stature) and
is his Uncle Harry the other gentleman on the right (who is of smaller stature)? Do you know how far apart in age they
were to one another? Perhaps my father, upon seeing these photos, will be able to recognize his grandfather, even though
my father was very young when he last saw him.        I do see a resemblance in both Frances and Harry to my father.
I don't have very much in the way of photos of my father's family, but I do have a photo of his mother Anna Lamboley-
Choquette and of his father Alfred Edward Choquette. At the Choquet-Choquette Genealogy Website, there are
photographs of Anna and Alfred Edward.        I submitted these photos and some of my genealogy information to the
Webmasters of the site (Jeanne and Jean Choquette) and they were kind enough to include these items at their site.        
I have to ask the Webmasters to correct something that appears at the site, which I submitted to them...the spelling of
Lamboley, which I thought it was spelled Lambalet. Long ago, I had asked Esther (my father's cousin) which spelling was
correct. She said she assumed that Lamboley was correct, but was not certain. However, thanks (again!) to you, I know
that the correct spelling is Lamboley.        Here is the link to the photographs and when you get to that page, please click
on the last name listed on that Webpage, which is my name and it will take you to the photos of Anna and Alfred Edward.
<A HREF="http://jchoquette.org/english/f_photos_e.html">Photo Albums</A> http://jchoquette.org/english/f_photos_e.
html
(Also, when you get to photos of Anna and Alfred, you may want to click on the various hyperlinks below their photos to
see my genealogy information. It is not yet complete, but I plan on adding new data soon).
Tomorrow morning, I will mail to you a copy of the two-page handwritten genealogy notes that my Dad's cousin Esther
sent me several years back. Among other things, it lists the names of the ten children of Frances and Mary Anne Galligan.
You asked for my mailing address, so that you could send me an up to date listing of Esther Virginia Lamboley-
Kammermann's descendents. I will very much look forward to receiving that. Thank you very much. My address is as
follows:

I very much enjoyed viewing the photo of Esther Virginia's (and your) family and my father also will, I am certain. What a
beautiful family!        My father clearly remembers his mother Anna's (and Esther Virginia's) sister Elizabeth (Esther
Penning-Monzella's mother). He visited her many, many times in his early youth, after his mother had already passed
away.        I met his Aunt Elizabeth only once, when I was very young, but I remember that she was a very nice lady and
so gracious to us when we visited her. I wish that I knew more about my father mother Anna, but as I mentioned to you, I
know so little...only what my Dad's cousin Esther told me.        She did say that Anna was a very hard-worker and that
when she passed away, her mother Elizabeth grieved very badly and for a very long time because they had a very close
relationship.
I just re-read the first letter that I sent you and am sorry to say that I now realize that it contained a few "typo's," etc.; i.
e., "I was of Irish, English, and French dependency" instead of the proper word, "descendancy"!!
and "my maternal Grandmother Anna, instead of "paternal Grandmother Anna"...so please forgive. If anything in that
first letter (or this one) remains unclear, please let me know and I'll clarify.
One other thing, I am trying to figure out what relationship we are to one another--probably cousins, but to what degree I
am not sure...cousins once removed, twice removed?? I'll have to figure that one out later, but I do know that Esther
Virginia would have been my Grand Aunt and Anna yours!
I look forward to hearing from you again and to receiving the updated list of Esther Virginia's descendants. Again, I can't
thank you enough for your kindness and thoughtfulness in sending the two photos and information to me.
Sincerely,
Lorette Choquette-Zale
Hello --
I was checking out Internet links to the Lamboley family and discovered that we seem to be third cousins. I found your
web site and see that your grandfather was married to Esther Lamboley, the daughter of Frances Jules Lamboley.        
Frances was the brother of Marie Lamboley (1841-1908), my great-grandmother, and the son of Felix Lamboley (1811- ? )
of La Cote, Haute-Saone province, France. Your great-grandfathers's other sibling was Harry Lamboley (1850 - ? ). I'm
not sure whether you have any photographs of these people, but my grandmother had some that came down to me, which
I've enclosed as attachments.
I have a copy of Marie's birth certificate, which says (as I was told by my grandmother) that Felix was a "Knight of the
Legion of Honor" in France. Harry's biography (from the 1892 Biographical History of Montgomery and Adams Counties,
Iowa) says that Felix was "for seven years ..a soldier in the French army.        At one of the battles in which he
participated a brave and gallant officer was wounded and left on the field to die, and at the risk of his own life Mr.
Lamboley went to him and bore him off the battlefield. For this heroic act he was given a pension of $8 per month and
given a medal of honor".
The mother of these three children was Jeanne Francoise Doubet Lamboley (1816-1850), the daughter of Joseph Doubet
(1785-1857) and Ersilla Mille Doubet (1789 - ? ). After Jeanne died in 1850, Marie, Frances, and Harry were brought to the
Peoria area by their uncle Xavier Doubet (pronounced "doobit" by my grandmother and her sisters) to join the extended
family of his parents (Joseph and Ersilla Doubet). Joseph had been mayor of Belfort, France before coming to America, so
I guess Felix's medal entitled him to marry a mayor's daughter (LaCote is a village near Belfort, a considerably larger
town). From what I can tell from my limited search, the Doubet's were a large family who left a lot of descendents in this
country.
Anyway, Marie Lamboley (my great-grandmother) married David Cochran, an emigrant from Scotland, when she was 15
years old. David left Scotland when he was 16, after his father died and his mother re-married. He took his college tuition
money, used it for a ticket to America, and never contacted his family in Scotland again!        They had a large family,
among whom were my grandmother Hannah (1874-1973), who moved from Iowa to central Montana in 1908 with four of
her sisters (and their husbands). They took out homesteads in this area, my mother lived here as a child, but my
grandmother never liked cold winters and after she divorced her husband eventually moved with her two daughters to
southern California, where I was born. I visited my Montana relatives frequently as a child, and moved here in the mid-
1970's after I married.        I've lived in this state since then, and am currently an ER physician in Lewistown, not far
from where my grandparents ranch was located.
I'm impressed by the amount of work you've done on your web site! I hope you've found this information interesting.
It's amazing how large many of those old families were and how widespread their descendents are.
Best regards,
Brian Priest

1811, 1814, 1815, 1818, 1820, and 1827.)
As luck would have it, the minister at this time was extremely conscientious and had good handwriting, so this one
baptismal record is exceptionally rich in information compared to those I have seen from other periods (sigh).
Christina's father Christian Staudenmann is the son of Ulrich, and is from a place that starts with an S and contains about
six letters (perhaps Salen or Staalen???).
Going beyond this particular baptismal record: for reasons that escape me now but can be recovered, I have identified
Christina's father with the Christian baptized 21 February 1779 in Guggisberg to Ulrich Staudenmann and Elsbeth
Zwahlen.        If you like collaterals, you'll love these folks: Ulrich and Elsbeth themselves had at least 9 kids. (Probably
my reasoning had to do with Christian's being identified as a brother of another son of Ulrich at some of these baptisms.)
Christina's mother is Barbara Zbinden and she and Christian were married in Guggisberg 31 May 1806. Barbara is
identified as the daughter of "Jak." and it appears to be her parents, Jakob Zbinden and Barbara Zbinden Zbinden, who
are two of the child's three godparents. Barbara is the one who is from Holzersflüh as are the grandparents.
Ironically, I haven't been able to connect this fruitful family to my own Guggisberg Staudenmanns, but I had to sort them
out anyway to learn who was who.        I am most interested to learn that your people too wound up in Illinois -- my
Staudenmann great-great
      my        great-great
grandmother died in 1902 in Cook County!
I have not looked at any post-1830 records and I haven't traced any Hostetlers. They are fairly numerous in the
Guggisberg records, however. Let me know off-list if I can send you an attachment.

Notes for Rosalie Hostettler:
[Kammermann Family Tree.FTW]
Soon after arriving in Livingston County, Illinois, Rosalie married a person whose name later generations do not
know.        The couple journeyed west. Soon a letter was recieved stating that Rosalie had died (no explanation) in
Colorado.
vi. Marguerite Hostettler was born on 04 Apr 1863 in Holzersflüh, Guggisberg, Berne, Switzerland. She married Mr.
Pattheg.
12.        Felix Lamboley was born on 02 Jan 1811 in Lacolte, Loire, France. He died in

Haute-Saone, Franche-Comte, France. She died on 08 Jan 1850 in Lure, Haute-Saone, Franche-Comte, France.
Notes for Felix Lamboley:
Lamboley:
(from the 1892 Biographical History of Montgomery and Adams Counties, Iowa) says that Felix was "for seven years ..a
soldier in the French army.        At one of the battles in which he participated a brave and gallant officer was wounded and
left on the field to die, and at the risk of his own life Mr. Lamboley went to him and bore him off the battlefield. For this
heroic act he was given a pension of $8 per month and given a medal of honor".
      Daughter Marie's birth certificate, says        that Felix was a "Knight of the Legion of Honor" in France.
Hello --
I was checking out Internet links to the Lamboley family and discovered that we seem to be third cousins. I found your
web site and see that your grandfather was married to Esther Lamboley, the daughter of Frances Jules Lamboley.        
Frances was the brother of Marie Lamboley (1841-1908), my great-grandmother, and the son of Felix Lamboley (1811- ? )
of La Cote, Haute-Saone province, France. Your great-grandfathers's other sibling was Harry Lamboley (1850 - ? ). I'm
not sure whether you have any photographs of these people, but my grandmother had some that came down to me, which
I've enclosed as attachments.
I have a copy of Marie's birth certificate, which says (as I was told by my grandmother) that Felix was a "Knight of the
Legion of Honor" in France. Harry's biography (from the 1892 Biographical History of Montgomery and Adams Counties,
Iowa) says that Felix was "for seven years ..a soldier in the French army.        At one of the battles in which he
participated a brave and gallant officer was wounded and left on the field to die, and at the risk of his own life Mr.
Lamboley went to him and bore him off the battlefield. For this heroic act he was given a pension of $8 per month and
given a medal of honor".
The mother of these three children was Jeanne Francoise Doubet Lamboley (1816-1850), the daughter of Joseph Doubet
(1785-1857) and Ersilla Mille Doubet (1789 - ? ). After Jeanne died in 1850, Marie, Frances, and Harry were brought to the
Peoria area by their uncle Xavier Doubet
(pronounced "doobit" by my grandmother and her sisters) to join the extended family of his parents (Joseph and Ersilla
Doubet). Joseph had been mayor of Belfort, France before coming to America, so I guess Felix's medal entitled him to
marry a mayor's daughter (LaCote is a village near Belfort, a considerably larger town). From what I can tell from my
limited search, the Doubet's were a large family who left a lot of descendents in this country.
Anyway, Marie Lamboley (my great-grandmother) married David Cochran, an emigrant from Scotland, when she was 15
years old. David left Scotland when he was 16, after his father died and his mother re-married. He took his college tuition
money, used it for a ticket to America, and never contacted his family in Scotland again!        They had a large family,
among whom were my grandmother Hannah (1874-1973), who moved from Iowa to central Montana in 1908 with four of
her sisters (and their husbands). They took out homesteads in this area, my mother lived here as a child, but my
grandmother never liked cold winters and after she divorced her husband eventually moved with her two daughters to
southern California, where I was born. I visited my Montana relatives frequently as a child, and moved here in the mid-
1970's after I married.        I've lived in this state since then, and am currently an ER physician in Lewistown, not far
from where my grandparents ranch was located.
I'm impressed by the amount of work you've done on your web site! I hope you've found this information interesting.
It's amazing how large many of those old families were and how widespread their descendents are.

John --
Thank you very much. I'm very impressed that you have this book --
I may want to call on it again. The nearest physical copy I know of is two hours' drive from here in Ft. Wayne.
Here are the siblings I have for Christina. I have baptismal records for them as well that I can scan and send if you like. I
was more ambitious when I was going through these years, and the ministers tended to put in more information than they
did in the 1700s. Besides, it's really hard to take notes on names and places that you can't make out without long study
and several dictionaries!
Johannes b 10 Feb bp 21 Feb 1808
Christian b 26 Dec bp 31 Dec 1809
Joseph b 15 June bp 21 June 1811 d. y. (X on baptismal record)
Anna b 29 May bp 5 June 1814
Joseph b 19 Oct bp 29 Oct 1815
Barbara b 20 Aug bp 31 Aug 1818
Peter b 8 Oct bp 15 Oct 1820
Ulrich b 15 May bp 24 May 1827
I am less certain about the family into which father Christian was born, but I did find five children born to Ulrich
Staudenmann and Elsbeth Zwahlen:
Ulrich bp 23 June 1776 later m. Barbara Burri and had perhaps 12
children
Christian bp 21 Feb 1779 later m. Barbara Zbinden and had the above children
Peter bp 2 Dec 1781 d.y.
Anna bp 26 Dec 1784 later m. Ulrich Zbinden and had at least 1
child
Joseph bp 5 Aug 1787 d.y.
As you see they didn't bother with recording birth dates in those years, and they rarely say anything about the parents'
parents in the baptismal records either.
I have not got my records well organized for these years, and there are some more people I found as adults who may well
be children in this family.        I hope to be able to tell you a little more this weekend.
When they are better organized I will also be able to confirm my reasoning for putting the families in this arrangement.
There are Staudenmanns thick on the ground here, and not enough different given names for my taste!
Anyway, it's a pleasure to have someone else to talk Staudenmann with.        I'm in communication with another
Staudenmann researcher (in this case we are known to be related). She was able to order a copy of the Guggisberg town's
lineage listing (not sure of the exact correct term) for our Staudenmann family, but I gather that soon afterward those
records were called in to the capital for some reason. So it's not clear if we can do the same or if we have to piece the
families together from the church records. She is sending me a copy of what she got, and then perhaps I'll have a better
idea of what it contains.

Notes for Francois Joseph Doubet:
Hello --
I was checking out Internet links to the Lamboley family and discovered that we seem to be third cousins. I found your
web site and see that your grandfather was married to Esther Lamboley, the daughter of Frances Jules Lamboley.        
Frances was the brother of Marie Lamboley (1841-1908), my great-grandmother, and the son of Felix Lamboley (1811- ? )

not sure whether you have any photographs of these people, but my grandmother had some that came down to me, which
I've enclosed as attachments.
I have a copy of Marie's birth certificate, which says (as I was told by my grandmother) that Felix was a "Knight of the
Legion of Honor" in France. Harry's biography (from the 1892 Biographical History of Montgomery and Adams Counties,
Iowa) says that Felix was "for seven years ..a soldier in the French army.        At one of the battles in which he
participated a brave and gallant officer was wounded and left on the field to die, and at the risk of his own life Mr.
Lamboley went to him and bore him off the battlefield. For this heroic act he was given a pension of $8 per month and
given a medal of honor".
