Paul J. Gaume was born in 1842.1 He was the son of Louis Jeanin-Gaume and Josephine Faiver. He married Nancy Haines after 1869 in Ohio. He died in 1914 in Akron, Ohio.

He was charged with 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.2 Obituary of Paul Gaume: "Paul J. Gaume died at Akron, Friday evening, following an operation which he had performed the morning of the same day. Mr. Gaume's home was in Pasadena, California, but he, accompanied by his wife, had come to Akron to spend the winter with relatives. He was apparently in good health and Louisville relatives were very unexpectedly informed of his death. Mr. Gaume was a son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Louis Gaume and was born on the farm now occupied by Arthur Oyster. When he was a small boy the family moved to Holmes County, Ohio, where Mr. Gaume remained until he was a young man and then went to Alliance and engaged in the mercantile business. He was very successful in business, owing to geniality and honesty and spent many years in retirement. About twenty years ago, owing to the ill health of his wife, he moved his family to Pasadena, where they have since resided. Mr. Gaume was twice married, his second wife and one son, Harry, of the former marriage, surviving.The following brothers and sisters also survive: Joseph Gaume, of Fort Zone, Arizona; Eugene and Frank Gaume of Akron; Louis Gaume, of Syracuse,New York; Emil Gaume and Mrs. Rose Bottomer, of Canton, and Mrs. James McDonald and Mrs. E. N. Lamielle, of Louisville. Funeral services were held at St. Vincent's Catholic church at Akron this morning, and the body will be taken to Pasadena for interment." ; Louisville Herald, January 15, 1914.
