The family of Jean Baptiste Musy was the first to reach Nova Friburgo (Brazil) in 1819. Jean Baptiste Musy was a field worker in Grandvillard in 1811, and later a shoemaker in 1818. His wife, Marie Agnès Baudevin Musy was a worker. They were 11 people to make the trip aboard the ship "Daphné." During the transatlantic ocean crossing, unfortunately, they lost 4 of their children: Joseph, Alexandre, Marie-Cécile and André Musy.
The Musy families lived primarily in Catagalo because of the coffee plantations in its region.
The second Musy family, with Jean Antoine Musy and his wife Françoise Véronique Baudevin Musy, also from Grandvillard
(Gruyère) reached Brazil on November 30, 1819. He was a distillery worker in 1818 and his wife a textile worker.
