1904-1986 — Detroit, Michigan, USA
Born in Chartres, France or possibly in Midi Pyrenees, France to Camille Saillant. I believe his father’s name was Frederic Saillant.
His twin brother’s name was Gaston Saillant.
Emigrated to the US through Canada and became a US citizen by joining the Navy.
Met Hazel Vernier in Michigan, married and had 3 children, Richard (my dad), Camille, and Janet.
They moved out to California and tried to build a life.
