Charles Daniel Juchau
By 1860, the family had returned to New York City living in Brooklyn, Kings.  Charles Juchau was an ivory turner and made umbrellas, fans, and other things; he had his shop in New York.  Susannah Juchau lived with her family for seven years until she came to Utah in 1861 at the age of 15 with Brother Lashbrook Laker and his wife with the Milo Andrus Company.  Her family remained in New York.  Susannah was expecting them to come the following year but trouble arose and Charles Daniel Juchau was excommunicated from the Church. 

On August 23, 1862, Ann (Wagstaff) Juchau gave birth to Annie Loiuse in Brooklyn, Kings, NewYork. 

July 4, 1886 – Dear Sister, I am a ventilator that is making ladies wigs and front pieces.  May (Mary) was a hairdresser and taught me to do it so that I could work at home, then I have quite a connection among Father’s (Charles Daniel Juchau’s) customers for whom I do pearl stringing; there was not enough to keep me busy or I should not have taken up hair work.  Sometimes it keeps me busy to keep them both going for I do repairing in pearl stringing between times; the hair work I have from a store.  I have a very pleasant room, my window full of flowers and two canary birds and am quite happy so long as I have work enough to keep me from thinking.

Annie has taken up writing and music.  She teaches writing in private schools and she has four music pupils so she is busy too.  When we have a few hours to spare we go for a long ride into the country if we can or to the seaside.  It does us both good.  Give our kind love to Mrs. Laker and family.

October 29, 1886 – Dear Sister, Yesterday was quite a holiday here.  The French people have made the US a present of a statue called Liberty, for a lighthouse, it is placed on an island in the bay where all the vessels pass.  And yesterday it was unveiled, a large procession in the morning and there would have been fireworks on the island but it rained and spoiled it all. 

Remember us kindly to Robert.  We hear he is building a nice new house.  Are you going to live in it?
- Charlotte Juchau

In 1897, Susannah (Juchau) Price went back to New York to visit her family and spent three months with them.   Charles Juchau had again joined the Church and was very happy in the Gospel; he remained faithful in the Church until his death.
