  • Notes 
    • Frank Pequegnat was a watch maker in Switzerland. In 1868, Frank and his
      family immigrated to America, and moved to Elgin, Illinois, where he was
      employed by the Elgin Watch Works. Because of a dissension with Frank's
      employer over one of his inventions, they moved to St. Louis, Mich. around
      1878, and Frank opened a jewelry store. Around 1909, they moved to Riverside,
      Calif., where he owned a very successful jewelry store. (Note: Frank and
      Pauline Pequegnat adopted their niece, Emma, when Emma's mother died in 1863.)
