Cimetière Bonnieux #3: Jean des Vallières, Vaucluse (84)

Jean des Vallières (1895–1970) wrote a great number of books, some under the pseudonyms 'Jean Ravennes' and 'Terence MacSwiney'. He came into possession of the Château de Montauban in Fontvieille in 1930 and founded, with Léo Lelée, La Société des amis des moulins d'Alphonse Daudet. After Liberation he was condemned to death in absentia by the Cour de Justice de Marseille and spent seven years in exile in Switzerland. He was acquitted in 1952.

Nonetheless, I'm definitely glad I found it and I'll be
bookmarking and checking back often!
