I presently live in Seattle in Ballard. My mom's mother was Grandma Faivre. Mom and all her family was born in Pontarlier, Franche-comte, France. This is near the Swiss Boarder and the town I think you are talking about. It is a beautiful area, crystal clear water, lakes and beautiful forest. People there are different looking and thinking. We were very happy to go back two months ago for a full month and found our memories untouched. If you would like more let me know.
