About the Juon Family Blog

If you’re interested in Juon genealogy, then you’re in the right place. We publish this site along with the Global Juon Family Facebook Page to keep relatives and researchers up to date on the latest contacts and information on the Juon surname.

We need basic information about our family members such as birth dates, marriage dates, etc. Many of the ‘Iowa Juons’ have already completed the Family Group Record, which is a form that gathers this information. If you haven’t yet done this – please do so now. Thanks!

    Hello Pat,

    I live in So. Calif. and was looking for information on my mother’s original family. Her name at birth was “Virginia Rimathe”, born in Polk County IA on January 27th or 28th, 1923. She was adopted by my adoptive grandparents at birth in Des Moines who named her Rose Mary Dayson. They were the City Florists in Des Moines for over 50 years, located on University Ave., across from Drake University and the big cemetary. Unfortunately, my Mother passed away on Valentines Day, 2008 – she was 85. I was successful in getting the family court in Des Moines to open her birth records a couple of years ago. The only thing they could provide was a copy of her “Articles of Adoption”. This was the first time we knew what her name was at birth.

    I’ve done a little research on the Rimathes and have spoken to Martha (New Jersey) and Rimathes in Des Moines. I’ve sent my Mother’s picture to them to ask about family resemblence. No one recalls any story of a young girl (Rimathe) having a baby out of wedlock and putting her up for adoption. It isn’t surprising, as in those days such pregnancies were hidden and not spoken of.

    I am sure there must be some way of tracking one of the young women in the family at that time of being in a Polk County hospital and giving birth. I do not know how her birth would be represented in a census or in a hospital record.

    I wonder if you would have any knowledge of how I could confirm which of the Rimathe women at that time would have been my Grandmother? This is baffling to me, and I would like to put together a family tree for my son and granddaughter.

    I’ve read the Juon story with great interest.

    All my best,

    Lydia Manderson

      Dear Pat

      With great interest I was reading the Juon Family Blog. As a Rimathé from Switzerland I have a nearly complete Family Tree from the 17th century on. It contains even my relaives in the USA (mostly Iowa). So if you have questions about the Rimathé Family just write me.

      I think it should even be possible to solve the question about the origine of Virginia Rimathe, the grandmother of Lydia Manderson.

      With kind regards

    I live (b. 1947) in N Polk Co. IA; I am distant cousin of & attended school or church with many Juons. Clara Rimathe Heim Juon was my GGgm. Clara’s mother was Anna Dolf Rimathe (from Juon Family Blog website). I am trying to find out if this Anna Dolf had any sisters, as a different Dolf woman of similar age from Zizers, SW area is ancestor of many large (non-Juon) families in Alleman, IA area. Thank you.

      I am very interested in corresponding with you on the Dolf/Rimathe/Heim/Juon/Fausch/Alleman families. I have sent you an email with some Dolf family information and look forward to more questions/information after you read that.

    Hello,
    my name is Simon Pietro Juon and I live in Italy.
    Some days ago, moving old stuff in the car box with my dad (Pietro), we’ve found an old image of what should be our family’s “coat of arms/banner” or something like that.
    Anyway since then I’ve started to ask question to my parents about our ancestors and it came up that my grand grand father moved here in Italy around the last years of 1800, from Switzerland, to be one of the chiefs in a very important industry and then he settled here because my grandfather was borned some years later while he was still working here.
    Do you think that we could be an Italian branch of the “Juon’s family” ?
    Thanks anyway for the time and I hope that my english wasn’t so bad 🙂
    Best regards.
    Simon Pietro

    Hi Simon,

    Happy to hear from you and, yes, I do think it’s likely you are an Italian branch of the Juon family. All of us seem to trace our ‘roots’ back to Switzerland! Hopefully you will connect with other family through this blog as well as the Juon Facebook page. I’ve sent you an email invitation to join our group and explore Juon ‘roots’ with the rest of us. 🙂

    Pat J.
