Editor’s Note: The Riboud family is linked to the Bowe, Casey and Lynch families through my aunt, Chesley Nancy Ann Gwinn Riboud, always known as Nancy. She created this bond by marrying the son of our progenitor Paul Riboud in 1933.

Nancy Gwinn’s mariage to Jacques Marcel Riboud brought about he other family relationships because Nancy was the sister of Mary Gwinn and Martha Gwinn. Mary Gwinn had married my father, William John Bowe, Sr. in 1928. Martha Gwinn later married John Dominic Casey in 1941.

With John Casey’s sister, Mary Catherine Casey, married to Patrick Columbus Lynch. the Nancy Gwinn Riboud connections to the Bowe, Casey and Lynch families was set. The Gwinn sisters left to right:
