Jean Jacques Cramot (sic), a craftsman watchmaker and, by nature a pacifist, took his family which included Charles Frederic from the town of Vandencourt in the department of Doubs, France to avoid the chaos of living in a country that was sending it's fine young men to various colonial wars around the world.. They crossed the nearby boarder into Reconvilier, Bern, Switzerland known for its international neutrality. It was here that Charles Frederic met and, on 24 SEP 1853, married his bride, Sophie Frene. It was here that he started raising his family. Charles Frederic eventually left Switzerland for the United States in hopes of finding greater opportunities for raising his family. The family first settled in Fairbury Illinois, but soon moved to Cissna Park in Iroquois County. All of the Cramotte children married into Iroquois County families.

Charles was a craftsman in a watch and clock factory in his community.
