Who was Rémus?

Rémus is the son of Louise, the great grandmother of the current owner.  He was born in 1895 in La Ferme. Still a teenager, he settles in Le Fournil where he also has his workshop.  But the Great War breaks out... In 1914, at 19, he leaves for the Eastern Front.  He comes back, wounded, with the War Cross.  He again settles in Le Fournil, and stays there until his marriage in 1923.  From then on, he will own an agricultural supplies business in Issigeac, where he will die in 1962.
