Jerome Family, Descendants of Jean Jerome
Andre and Marguerite (Gosselin) Jerome
Pictured here is Andre Jerome (1829-1916) and Marguerite Gosselin Jerome (1829-1914), the first settlers in what is now Kittson County, Minnesota. Their photo was selected to appear here because their story typifies the significant role of the Jerome family in the history and development of that part of America now known as Saskatchewan, Manitoba, North Dakota and Minnesota. This website presents my best efforts to document the growth of that family. My mother was Margaret Jane Jerome, granddaughter of Andre and Marguerite and wife of Anthony J. Merck.
