Welcome James. You may be interested in the article on the Michelin company on the home page, as your grandparents probably moved here with the wave of French immigrants early 20th Century. There are still Selovers in town, I don't know if you stayed in touch with any of them.
Do your genealogical interests cover Riou, Selover or both? I also am interested in Milltown genealogly - mostly the Kuhlthau line. I know that Gail Selover married an E Alton Dunn, son of Evelyn Kuhlthau and Everett Dunn, but that's the only imeddiate link I see between Selover/Kuhlthau. There's probably more though since Selovers were in Middlesex county since before 1800 and the Kuhlthaus hit Milltown in force by 1853.
Hazel was the great granddaughter of Conrad Kuhlthau, Phillip's older brother. Phillip came to Milltown first, then, Conrad, and in 1853 their parents and the rest of the children. All told Johann Heinrich Kuhlthau and Anna Barbara Lins had 11 children, 9 of whom raised families in and around Milltown. I would be interested in a copy of that book. My email is BransonIL@aol.com
