Biographical Note:

This collection of genealogical research, compiled by Frances DeBeukelaer Murray (1922-2004), of Santa Rosa, California, focuses on the lives of her great-grandparents, Catherine Elizabeth Duval (1818-1885) and Charles Frederick Marchand (1811-1868), their parents, and their descendants. Originally from France, the Duval family immigrated to the United States in 1832 from Germany and settled in Lee, Oneida County, New York; in 1833 Charles F. Marchand immigrated to the United States from France. Catherine and Charles married in 1834 and possibly lived in Massachusetts before returning to Oneida County, where they resided for the rest of their lives. The couple had ten children: Catherine Bartlett, Margaret Mott, Rosina Griffith, John Marchand, Charles F. Marchand, Jr., Emma DeBeukelaer, Eliza Savery Griffin, Francis Louis Marchand, Benjamin Franklin Marchand, and Sara Jane Fox.

Scope and Content Note:

The collection consists of genealogical research and an unpublished genealogy for the Duval and Marchand families. The research, contained in sixteen volumes of loose leaf binders, is primarily notes and copies of original documents such as photographs, newspaper articles, census records, and correspondence, as well as records pertaining to births, marriages, and deaths. Other materials include copies of land records and maps, immigration records, and military records, as well as a small collection of labels from distillery and confectionery companies owned by members of the DeBeukelaer family in Antwerp, Belgium. A number of volumes consist of notes on the contents of Soundex indexes, Federal and State Census indexes, National Archives resources, and email correspondence related to the Duval-Marchand family research.

The unpublished genealogy of the Duval and Marchand families, entitled Louis F. and Catherine Duval and Their Marchand Descendants, documents the lives of the Duvals and of Catherine and Charles Marchand and their children. Each entry contains a time line and history for each individual as well as information about his or her spouse and children. It also briefly traces the descendants of the Duval-Marchand family and includes lists of sources used to compile each profile.

The organization of the volumes varies. Some volumes contain general research on the Duval-Marchand family while others focus on an individual or a group of family members. With the exception of the unpublished genealogy, which was not given a number, the original organization and labeling system of the volumes has been preserved. Additional details such as full and maiden names have been noted when clarification is necessary.
