Louis Jeanin-Gaume was also known as Louis Gaume. He and Joseph Faivre appeared as neighbors on the census of 1840 in Nimishillen Township, Stark County, Ohio.5 He and Mathias Gaume appeared as neighbors on the census of 1850 in Stark County, Ohio.6 He and Lawrence Blanchard appeared as neighbors on the census of 1860 in Black Creek, Holmes County, Ohio.7
Holmes County Rebellion.He was charged with treason and conspiracy to resist the execution of the law and armed assault on an enrollement officer during the Holmes County Rebellion, an anti-draft uprising during the Civil War. He was never arrested and charges against him were later dropped. in June, 1863 in Holmes County, Ohio.8
Census Notes.Immediately following the family of Mathias Gaume on the same page (US Census 1850 Nimishillen Twshp., Stark Cty., Ohio, pg. 469b) is the family of Louis & Josephine Gaume. It is unclear from the record what the relationship is between Mathias and Louis Gaume. Louis appears to be too old to be a son of Mathias and ages differences make it appear that they were not brothers. The Louis Gaume family lives in the next immediate household from the Mathias Gaume family and ditto marks are used in place of the last name to indicate that the family name is GAUME. My first thought was that they were perhaps uncle and nephew. I did a quite a bit of research on this family for a number of reasons. When I first began to research the family of my g-grandmother over 15 years ago I had thought that Della Gaume was Adeline Gaume, a daughter of Louis Gaume by his second wife. Adeline Gaume was born in 1867. I later learned that this was not the case and that MY Della Gaume was the daughter of Francis Gaume (Jr.), son of the Francis Gaume discussed earlier. Another reason for interest in this family was that a number of its members left Ohio and settled for a time in Kansas. Lastly I was curious about the first wife of Louis Gaume, Josephine Faiver and whether or not she is related in any way to Elizabeth Faiver, wife of Francis Gaume, Sr. and mother of Francis, Jr. The Louis Gaume family appears in the US Census for Stark County in 1850, 1860, and 1880. I finally found the family in the 1870 Census and the family was living in Richland township, Holmes county, Ohio near the village of Napoleon (Glenmont) during this period. Some time in the late 1850's Louis Gaume's first wife, Josephine, died and he shortly thereafter married Eugenia Cholley. At some point in my research, over ten years ago, I somehow came up with name of Jane Marie Rebillot as the second wife of Louis Gaume. Where I got that name is a complete mystery to me. At any rate a number of primary sources have confirmed that Eugenia Cholley was the second wife of Louis Gaume.
Obituary.From the obiturary of Louis Gaume:
"Death of an Old Citizen - Louis Gaume was born in Doubt (Doubs), France, December 15th, 1813 and died November 5th, 1898, making his age 84 years, 10 months and 20 days. In 1835, when a young man twenty-two years of age, he came to America, where he became acquainted with Miss Josephine Faiver and whom he married in 1839. Nine children were born to this union, four of whom survive. They are Paul Gaume, of Ft. Collins, CO; Joseph Gaume of Indian Territory; Charles Gaume of Arizona and Eugene Gaume of Canton, O. After living happily together for some years, the wife died and Mr. Gaume married a second time to Miss Jennie Cholley. Their family consisted of eight children. Mrs. Gaume and two children preceded him in death some years and the remaining ones are Frank Gaume, of Danville, O; Emile Gaume and Mrs. Bottimer, of Canton; Louis Gaume, of New York City; Mrs Eusebe Lamielle, and Mrs. James McDonald, of this place. Mr. Gaume was a great sufferer from cancer for about seventeen years and it was this that caused his death, which occurred on Saturday afternoon at the home of his daughter, Mrs. McDonald on West Gorgas street. He was an old and respected citizen of Louisville, having lived here a number of years and had a large circle of friends who received the news of his death with sorrow. The funeral services were held at the Catholic church on Tuesday morning, conducted by Rev. Father Senner, and the remains were laid to rest in the Catholic cemetery, south of Louisville."
