Verdier Family, City Of Paris Department Store : LUSENET : San Francisco History : One Thread

I am looking for the history of the Verdier family who founded and operated the old City of Paris Department Store. Felix and Emile, from Nimes, France, founded the store at the time of the Gold Rush. They were succeeded by Gaston, son of Felix. The last of the family were Paul Verdier and his sister, Susanne de Tessan (nee Verdier), who operated the store in the 1930's through the 50's, possibly later. The store closed in 1972.

More family members, more details?
