From "History of Davenport and Scott County" Vol. II by Harry E. Downer-S. J. Clarke Publishing Co. 1910 Chicago.

Surnames: De Lescaille, Shaw, Stafford.

Jules J. De Lescaille was a resident of Davenport for but comparatively brief period, yet within that time his genial nature won him expressions of warm friendship and he became recognized as a most honorable, upright man. He was born in Belgium in 1849 and was brought to this country when but eight years of age.
His education, therefore, was acquired on this side the Atlantic. On the 14th of September, 1884,(1881) he married Miss HARRIET SHAW and unto them were born four children:
VICTOR, who is now at home; RAYMOND, who is at Cloquet, Minnesota, where he is learning the lumber business;
Mrs. MARY Stafford, a resident of Chicago; and UULES, at home.
In 1898 Mr. De Lescaille removed with his family from Cloquet, Minnesota to Davenport, where his remaining days were spent. He manifested in his life many traits of character which won him high and favorable regard and gained him a large circle of friends. In Masonry he attained the Knight Templar degree and in his life exemplified the beneficent spirit of the craft. His religious faith was manifest in his membership in the Episcopal church and he lived in harmony with his professions, seeking to deal justly with all men and to recognize at all times the rights and privileges of others.
