 Pauline Rita DuFauchard-Williams was born:
 April 17, 1933 in  Chicago Illinois, and Died: January 5, 2017 Chicago Illinois to: Paul DuFauchard  and Anita Edingburg, 

She married Castor Zebulon Williams, October 11, 1952 in Cook County, Illinois.
They have two daughters living. 

There are also three siblings, a brother and sister still living and Preston Paul DuFauchard deceased.
She has two grandsons and one granddaughter.
Also two great grandsons and one great granddaughter.

 Pauline is my second cousin, she's on my Edingburg side which would be my paternal grandmothers side.  I never had the chance to meet her in person, but I did talk to her on the phone.  
When I was researching the Edingburg side of my family I put a post on Rootsweb looking for people related to Daniel Trigg Edingburg, That post sat with no replies for years probably seven years or more then I got a reply and from there this is how I came in contact with this large part of my family that I had no idea existed. Since then I have kept in constant contact with my new found cousins.

Pauline said that my dad and his brother would go to Chicago from Tennessee to see the family.  She remembers them both being so handsome and the girls always saying how handsome they were. I knew nothing of this, for some unknown reason no one in my immediate family said a word about these cousins in Chicago.

Pauline's "Dufauchard"  side of the family is from New Orleans and originally from Paris, France.
I'm doing research on this side of her family as well.

Pauline worked for the Curtiss Candy Company, she would bring bags of candy home for her family. The company started business in 1916 located on Illinois Street and Ogden Slip. Starting out with Babe Ruth candies, Later the company sold out to Standard Brands moved the facility to Franklin Park in 1966. The company would go through several more transfers of ownership. They made Butterfinger a popular candy.

 While doing some research, I've found that there might be a large amount of royalty on the DuFauchard side. it appears on Jean Baptiste Dufauchard's side, there are several famous people like:
King Charles 11 of England,  King Friedrich 1 of Prussia,  Catherine de'Medici, Isabella Clara Eugenia of Austria, Vincent Price,  Barbra Streisand, Jack Kerouac, and Madonna. I will be researching this more.

This is Pauline with one of her grandsons. I'm hoping to add some stories about her, plus where she went to school, and also to post where and when these photos were taken.

 She looks so carefree in this photo.  I wonder what she was thinking and what was going on at that time.


Love her smile in this photo.

I wonder what's on her mind?

She's eating. I don't think that was her favorite thing to do. I like her sweater.


Sort of a smile here.  

This is all the information I have a the moment, I will update as I get more information.
