We are not precisely certain of the identity of Mme. Froment-Meurice, but it seems likely that she is the wife of one of three brothers, either Jacques, FranÃ§ois, or Marc Froment-Meurice. This would make her either the former Jeanne Charlotte Marie Lesbros-Ritt, wife of Jacques; the former Valentine Ullmann, wife of FranÃ§ois; or ThÃ©cla Ullmann, wife of Marc. She would then be, at any rate, a sister-in-law of [Rose Gelbert], sister to all three, who also played golf at the 1900 Olympics.
All four were children of Ãmile Froment-Meurice and Rose Tassin Moncourt. The family was descended from FranÃ§ois-DÃ©sirÃ© Froment-Meurice, a famous French goldsmith from the early 19th century, and Jacques became a well-known sculptor. Mme. Froment-Meurice was the highest placed French player in the 1900 Olympic womenâs golf tournament, finishing fourth behind three US players. She was a member of the SociÃ©tÃ© de sport de CompiÃ¨gne, with the Olympic golf tournament held at the CompiÃ¨gne Club.
