Mrs. John Haffener, Eleonora Marie Parcot, was born in Alsace Lorraine, France in 1852.
She married John Haffener on Sept. 9, 1878, settling in the U.S.A. @ 1882. She had a brother (?????) Parcot who lived in/near Chicago and he had a daughter named Bertha Parcot Martin (Mrs. Edgar Martin). Eleonora also had a sister, Celestine Oster, of Folschviller, France and other relatives there; we corresponded for a number of years with a Ferdinand Oster, son of Celestine, but he too has passed away. The Haffeners had 3 children: Melanie Reyes, John Haffener, and Eleonora Schneider. I am descended from the Schneider family. I would appreciate any information concerning the above named families - especially Parcot.
