I copied part of the following from a different thread - I first posted it there, but it deserves not to be buried there.

QUOTE
There's a lot of cool stuff at the French forum lately, including the birth certificate of Dr. Ordinaire, which is significant in view of the fact there's been speculation about whether he actually existed.

http://arcetsenans.com/resources/CEGFC+-+Dr+Ordinaire.pdf

"Pierre fils de Nicola l'ordinaire et de susanne fagnon mari et femme demeurant à la grange des routes est né le 11 septembre 1741, et a été baptisé le même jour. Le parrain a été pîerre parreau, et la marraine magdeleine chaillet, illetrée."

Pierre son of Nicola l'Ordinaire and Susanne Fagnon husband and wife residing in La Grange des Routes was born on September 11th, 1741, and was baptized the same day. The godfather was Pîerre Parreau, and the godmother Magdeleine Chaillet, illiterate.


Here's some new information, posted by g_painblanc in response to subsequent comments at the French forum:

Suite à votre demande sur Pierre Ordinaire, nous vous avons retranscrit la page de son acte de décès ci-dessous :
(registre des décès de Couvet) : Pierre Ordinaire, fils de feu Nicolas ORDINAIRE de Quingey, Département du Doubs, et de sa femme Susanne, née Fagnon, âgé de 79 ans, est mort de rétention d'urine le 1er août 1821, inhumé le 3e dudit.


Further to your request on Pierre Ordinaire, we retranscribed for you the page of his death certificate below:
(register of deaths of Couvet): Pierre Ordinaire, son of the late Nicolas ORDINAIRE of Quingey, Department of Doubs, and of his wife Susanne, born Fagnon, 79 years old, died from retention of urine on August 1st, 1821, buried the 3rd of the aforementioned (month).

Pierre Ordinaire s'est marié avec Henriette PETITPIERRE († le 01/03/1827), fille de François et Marie-Louise PETITPIERRE. Pierre Ordinaire s'est fait naturaliser le 17/10/1786, après 18 ans de métier dans la Principauté de Neuchâtel.

Pierre Ordinaire was married to Henriette PETITPIERRE (died 01/03/1827), daughter of François and Mary-Louise PETITPIERRE. Pierre Ordinaire was naturalized 17/10/1786, after 18 years of activity in the Principality of Neuchâtel.

I'm smiling now, Arty, but my first reaction to the title of this thread was:

Fuck, what did I say wrong THIS time?

Has the cause of death triggered any discussion of the dreaded chop.gif?

I don't see much of the porky chop over there in any thread. In any case, if it took 60 years to kill him, who can complain, even he?

If I understand the conversation over there, which is by no means certain, there's a lot more on the record about the doctor than people have assumed. Unfortunately, there is nothing about his Corsican horse, but apparently he had several children who also became doctors, and even a descendant who was a senator. This gives rise to speculation that his place of interment might be relatively elaborate (therefore easier to locate). Either way, if located, it could become a sort of shrine, a place where absintheurs imbibe in the moonlight. Calling Mr. Grim ....

I don't know if the analogy is correct, but:

.info/thujone-absinthe-20.html" target="_blank">http://www.chop.gif.info/thujone-absinthe-20.html

before any knee reacts with a jerk at the twice mentioned Thujone-Bottle.jpg, I want to remind you of an illness named Brewers Droop, that was caused apparently by the constant handling of hops, since it was more common among brewers than drinkers. So the constant handling of wormwood may have made distillers get in contact with much more chop.gif than absinthe drinkers.

You haven't had enough to drink.

He said handling, not drinking, made it droop.

No problem.

I raised that possibility over there, but was told that unless it received upkeep out of the ordinary, it's unlikely to even still exist. Apparently much cemetery ground is recycled in that area after a fairly short time (certainly well less than 200 years), apparently due to real estate limitations. The people working on this have even located a living descendant and talked to her. She knew little of the doctor and nothing at all of absinthe.

I have corrected a date in the post about Ordinaire's birth and death; there was a typo.
Note: French format for dates is day/month/year.
It was correct in the original French.
I had switched it to month/day/year in the English translation, which transposed the month and the day for his date of naturalization.
