Birds of a Feather Flock Together

Birds of a feather flock together…

This would apply to Joe, Frank, and I. I am sure it would  also apply to Sandy, Fran, Ed, and Robin whose husband is the one who is related to us.

Robin…!

Of course… I should have known.

Anyway…

Judy Giguere posted a comment this week and she wanted to know about her Moquin ancestors.

Not sure if I can help.
Jules Moquin was my great-grandfather.
He was born in Canada, married Marie Dube.
I believe there are Lagaces somewhere in the family line, but I’m not sure where.
Can you, or anyone else offer any insights on Jules and Marie?

I gave it a try and I found a Jules Moquin in the 1900 U.S. Census.

Guess what?

He was Frank Lagasse’s and Sophie Archambeault’s neighbor!

Small world!

Even smaller because Dennis Lagasse, my great-grandfather is at the bottom of the page with his wife Harriett (Henriette Alexandre) and their two sons Adlore (Adélard) and Léo, my grandfather!

Still smaller…

Eugène Dubé, who married Dennis’ sister Lily Lagasse, is also living on that street in 1900.  His brother Napoleon Dubé is his next door neighbor.

I believe Marie Dube has to be related to all these Dubés.

She has to be.

One day, someone will write me a comment and have all the answers with pictures to go along.
