Bio and Links
The Facompré History is a fascinating story filled with intrigue, suffering and triumph. In the 1700's the persecution of the French Huguenots would become horrific. One Facompré would suffer Execution by Guillotine. Many fled France,and in 1791 Jean Joseph Facompré settled in Nienburg, Germany. He had with him a secret biscuit recipe. In 1801 he opened the Bakery today known as the "Biskuithaus". His son would later use the bear paw symbol from the Counts of Hoya to create a new biscuit mold. In this form the "Bärentatze" became famous worldwide. Twice the French occupied Nienburg causing Joseph to alter the spelling of his last name for fear of getting caught. By 1883 the Nienburg Biscuit reached America where it would face new challenges and success.

Welcome to FindaGrave

Hi Fred,

I just noticed that you have been a member of FindaGrave for just under a month. I hope this photo request didn't waste too much of your time. I try to be careful not to send people out on "wild goose chases". I did know that her husband was buried there and that he has a gravestone photo already posted. I think I mentioned that on my photo request. Maybe I should have submitted a photo request for another photo of his gravestone showing the area around him. I think I will.

Sincerely, Tim Cooper

Lucy Taylor Cooper Brush 1843-1927

Hello Fred,

Thank you for going to Commack Cemetery to try to find the gravestone for Lucy Taylor Cooper, wife of Hanford Alva Brush. her husband already has a gravestone photo posted. i was hoping that she would be buried next to him. She died 7 months before he did, so I thought it most likely that they are buried together. If she is not buried next to him, then she is likely not buried in New York at all. Perhaps buried In Massachusetts. I will check with some of the researchers I know in the Plymouth area.

Sincerely, Tim Cooper
