Josephine was the beloved first wife of Jules Etienne Francois, who later changed his surname to Francis at the time of his naturalization. They were married in Sedan, Ardennes, France on February 6, 1886 according to the Ardennes Archives. They immigrated to the United States together arriving on the S.S. Pennland January 26, 1889. They traveled to join Alexander Francois, Jules' brother, in Oconto Falls, WI. Josephine is listed in the manifest under her maiden name, spelled as "Leroi". She died very young at the age of only 37 & 9.8 months. A family member recently stated that there are five stillborn girls buried with or near Josephine. Sadly, there were no children who survived from this marriage.
