Cartan's father Joseph (1837-1917) was born in the village of Saint Victor de Morestel, which is 13 kilometers from Dolomieu. After he married Anne Cottaz (1841-1927) the family settled in Dolomieu, where Anne had lived. Joseph Cartan was the village blacksmith. Elie Cartan recalled that his childhood had passed under "blows of the anvil, which started every morning from dawn", and that "his mother, during those rare minutes when she was free from taking care of the children and the house, was working with a spinning-wheel".
