Brian LeGacy wants to find out the link with André Mignier. I told him we were distant cousins.
I asked Brian to give me more info. He is quick on the trigger just like André Mignier…
I did some research on ancestry.com and found a few more generations for you.
Grandfather – George W. LeGacy born 11 Feb 1919 Princeton, Maine
Great Grandfather – Albert “Bert” Legacy born abt 1891 Maine
Great Great Grandfather – Wallace “Wallie” Legacy born abt 1862 Maine
Great Great Great Grandfather – Louis Legacy (sometimes in census as Lewis Legacy or Legassie) born about 1815 Canada
That’s what I was able to gather from an existing Family Tree project by as Cousin’s Wife on ancestry.com
Hopefully this will help!
This is what I found on Family Search
We have the 1880 Census and Wallie is there all right.
And he is not alone.

From that we know that Louis Lagacé and Marie (maiden name unknown) were born in Canada.

Well I think so.
Come back for more next time.
It’s like watching History Detectives.
