Biography of Mathias Kaudy

I am a descendant of Mathias Kaudy, who was born in Manderen, France in 1832. He died 10-7-1916 in Clark County, Wisconsin. He and his son, John Botey Kaudy, (b. 1857 & d. 1920) are both buried in Weston East (now know as "Chapel Hill") Cemetery in Christie, Weston Township, Clark Co., Wisconsin. His daughter (my grandmother), Mary Sylvia Kaudy, married Robert E. Foote."

The original of the family photo below hangs on my living room wall.

Mathias Kaudy is standing in front of the teamsters wagon pulled by the draft horses, as "pints were hoisted" in celebration of a completed saloon fixture. He was a cabinetmaker and made the large bar front on the wagon. His son, Mathias Jr., is there as well. Another son, John Botey Kaudy was later sheriff of Clark County, Wisconsin.
