Louis Junod, born on 18 November 1791 in Lignières, emigrated with
a group of Bernese in 1819, settling in Athens, Athens County, Ohio.
information on this family was gathered from documents found essentially
at the Civil Registry of Lignières, at the Neuchâtel State Archives,
in the publication of Prof. Philippe Henry of the Neuchâtel University "Une
lettre d'Amérique en 1837 - Remarques sur l'Emigration Neuchâteloise
au début du XIXème siècle" (published in "le Musée Neuchâtelois", issue
No 1/89), as well as data received from descendants.
