Puzzled?

Did you stumble on this blog about genealogy by chance?

Genealogy attracts a lot of people searching for their ancestors.

Last year, Robin, who lives on the West Coast, scanned close to 100 pictures.  I was quite excited about them especially these tin-type photographs.

Robin is not even directly related to these people. Her husband is.

Only one person was identified.

David Nathanael Bleau.

Every picture Robin sent me about him and his descendants are on this blog. This is what we do.

We share all and try to identify every one. We ask for nothing in return and we don’t sell coffee mugs or phony coats of arm.

This picture remains a mystery concerning the two children.

Helen Alexander would be photographed here and she would be the mother. The children’s father would be Joseph Bleau, David’s brother, but he is not on this picture.

Their grandparents are on it though: Jean-Baptiste Alexandre (Alexander) and Philomène Lagacé (Libbie Lagasse) both of French-Canadian descent.

What about them…?

These documents Fran sent me two days ago tell a lot about them.

Jean-Baptiste Alexander’s death certificate

Philomene Lagasse’s death certificate

About this montage…

The man on the right, top row?

We did not know who he was a few months ago.

Now we know for sure and now we know a lot more about how John B. Alexander died,

Jean-Baptiste Alexander II’s death certificate

Still puzzled?

  1. Hello, I am a descendant of Blanche Corelia Bleau. I have gotten pretty excited to come upon these pictures. I wonder, does anyone know of her? She passed away, many years ago, but I have always been interested in the Bleau name. Her husband was Edward Roland Collins.
    Thank you,
    Cynthia

    • Excited?
      How do you think I feel?
      I know a lot about the Bleaus.
      I will contact you direct since I have your e-mail with this posted comment on the blog.

        Hi,

        I just saw your comment.

        You will have to give me more details to link Blanche with the Bleau family.
        The Bleaus lived in Connecticut.

        Please keep contact.
