A Guide



Descriptive Summary

Creator: Santerre Family.
Title: Santerre Family Papers
Dates: 1655-1956
1855-1889
Abstract: The Santerre family were early settlers of La Réunion Colony, a French socialist colony founded in 1855 near Dallas, Texas. The colony was owned by the European American Colonization Society, organized in Paris, France, and was based on the Utopian ideals of Charles Fourier. The patriarch of the Santerre family, François Santerre, was recruited by the colonization society to immigrate to La Réunion colony due to his reputation as an agriculturalist. He, along with his wife and children, arrived at La Réunion in 1856. The Santerre Family Papers contain correspondence, financial and legal documents, photographs, literary works, newspaper clippings, memorabilia, magazines, and books from the Santerre family library. The majority of the materials are in French, although rudimentary translations of the letters and financial and legal documents are available. Correspondence provides insights into the French and American philosophical and political landscapes of the era. Financial and legal documents include land deeds and records, birth certificates, and wills, as well as François Santerre's certificate of inscription into the European American Colonization Society of Texas. The books, literary works, and memorabilia contained within the collection reflect the religious, intellectual, and general interests of the family.

Historical Note

François Santerre was born in Maveux commune near Blois, France, on March 16, 1809. He served required military duty in the French Army, 65th Infantry Regiment, from 1830-1833, and then again with the 4th Infantry Regiment from 1840-1843. He saw action at the siege of Antwerp in 1830, and again at D'Anvers when the French sent an Army against Belgium. After his last discharge he returned home where he married Marie Launay. While residing in France they had six children; two daughters and four sons.

Santerre, considered an outstanding citizen of his home town, was well-educated and especially interested in science and agriculture. In 1855, he was contacted by the European American Colonization Society about immigrating to Texas due to his reputation as an agriculturist. Poor economic conditions wrought by the after effects of the French Revolution prevailed in France at the time and contributed to Santerre's decision to move his family to the United States. Their final destination was La Réunion Colony in north Texas.

La Réunion, a French socialist colony, inspired by the Utopian ideals of Charles Fourier, was founded near Dallas, Texas, by Victor Prosper Considerant and his followers. Owned by the European American Colonization Society organized in Paris, France, the colony was incorporated by the Texas Legislature, September 1, 1856. François Cantagrel, chosen director of the colony, and a party of American recruits entered Texas on December 22, 1854, to select a site. A tract of land was purchased on the bluffs along the West Fork of the Trinity River a few miles west of the village of Dallas.

The first band of colonists from France, Belgium, and Switzerland arrived at La Réunion on June 16, 1855, led by Dr. Augustin Savardan. The new colony was comprised of 350 well-educated, highly-skilled residents. François Santerre, his wife and their six children arrived at Galveston, Texas, in April 1856. They traveled by oxen and wagon to reach the colony by May 1856. Santerre, due to his knowledge and study of agronomy and scientific farming, was placed in charge of the development of agriculture at the colony. A son, Gustave, was born in 1857 at the colony townsite.

Problems soon arose and were attributed to poor soil, unpredictable weather, and the fact that only a half dozen of the colonists had any farming experience. Due to poor investments, the European American Colonization Society experienced difficulties and soon went bankrupt. On January 28, 1857, Allyre Bureau, acting head of the colony, posted notice to the effect that the colony was dissolved. By 1858, members had drifted away to New Orleans, Dallas, and nearby communities while others returned to France. A few families, however, remained at the site. The Santerre family lived at the colony site until after the Civil War. During this time the oldest son, Appollinaire, died. In 1866, Santerre moved his family to a tract of land which he obtained from the receivers of the colony upon its dissolution. The Santerre children married colonists or children of colonists and remained in the area. Cesarine married Emile Remond, Lucie married Charles Voirin, Germaine married Marie Guyot, Raphael married Ernestine Priot, Gustave married Rosina Loupot, and Emanuel married Victoire Lanotte. Santerre and his wife continued to live in the log and rock home he had built on the tract. François died in 1889; Marie in 1892. They are buried in the old French Colony Cemetery.

Scope and Contents

The Santerre Family Papers are comprised of three boxes of material, several oversized printed items, and books. The collection consists of correspondence, financial and legal documents, photographs, literary works, newspaper clippings, memorabilia, magazines, and books in the French language. Summarized translations of the contents of the letters, and the financial and legal documents were completed by student assistant, David Sears, and the compiler. The translations are by no means comprehensive due to the difficulty in transcribing the handwriting and because the translators are not experts in the field. It is hoped that the translations will serve as a guide or beginning point to further research.

The bulk of correspondence, 1860-1889, is addressed primarily to François Santerre. The majority of the letters are from Augustin Houdin of St. Leonard, France, regarding family news, financial transactions, and discussions of political and philosophical thought between the two men. The letters are responses to Santerre's letters, which are not available. Santerre made several business trips to France during his stay at the colony. Houdin was his notary, his lawyer, and apparently his best friend and contact in France. The letters contain interesting observations on the French and American contemporary scene, including an account of experiences during the Franco-Prussian War. Early letters, 1866-67, reflect Santerre's doubts about remaining in the U.S. Although Houdin sympathizes with his desire to return to a more civilized lifestyle, he always encourages Santerre to stay, advising that "Liberty is like health, you don't miss it until you don't have it." Of interest is a letter from Houdin in 1875 which mentions an invitation he received concerning collecting for the Statue of Liberty as a gift to the United States. Other correspondents include Chillet, François J. Cantagrel, Fauconnet, family members, and miscellaneous others.

Financial documents, 1855-1898, include tax receipts, statements of accounts due, and receipts for notes and land transactions. Two ledgers used for figuring, notes, and lists of purchases and expenditures date from 1846-1898. Legal documents, 1856-1921, include certified copies of several family members' birth certificates, deeds for land in Dallas County from Victor P. Considerant and the European American Colonization Society and deeds from other individuals for land purchased or sold in Dallas County. Of special interest is a copy of an abstract of title to acreage in the Anson McCracken Survey which contains a copy of the Act to Incorporate the European and American Colonization Society in Texas, and a history of issue of property from April 1, 1850, by the Commissioner of the Peters Colony. The papers include Santerre's certificate of inscription into the Society. Copies of the wills of François Santerre and Cesarine Santerre Remond are also included.

Memorabilia, primarily in French, ranges from printed items such as greeting cards, engravings, advertising cards, illustrations, maps, religious cards, and a State Fair blue ribbon, to homemade paper items. Photographs are of members of the Santerre family, approximately 1890, in front of their homestead, of family gravestones, and of Mr. & Mrs. Capy. Army record books of François Santerre are included. They detail clothing and equipment issued to Santerre as well as his physical description and family background. Additional printed material includes maps, booklets, calling cards, newspaper clippings, and various other clippings, as well as French illustrated magazines, 1843-1913, and pages from an old undated Bible.

François Santerre was an avid reader who brought many of his treasured books with him from France. He loved books, and was especially interested in the study of economics and its relation to the world's problems. A list of book titles received with the papers is attached to the physical finding aid. Works are included by Charles Fourier, and Victor Considerant, as well as novels by Eugene Sue, Victor Hugo, J. J. Rousseau, Voltaire, Moliere, and also various English authors. Dictionaries, tourist guides, almanacs, agricultural guides, religious works, histories, geographies, medical books, and a few children's texts are also included.
