I hope you are still following me in this neverending story about a visit I made to a cemetery in the fall of 2013.
Agnes Lagacé had married Julien Myers, then she became a widow. She remarried with Leon Saucier afterwards. Writing about the Myers family led me to contacf two of Chrétien Lemaire’s descendants who both shared information.
Jason had a lot a pictures to share, and this one was the most intriguing.
That picture led me to this…

Do you believe everything I write?
You should, even if we are April 1st.
Even if it does not look that way, I take genealogy quite seriously.
The proof is the pudding.

Little Oscar, 7 years-old, is seen here with this family on a close-up of the census page.
The Oscar on that page is Oscar Boisjoli’s father.
Little Oscar could have looked a little like his son.
Oscar Boisjoli married Delia Gaudet in 1885. Delia was the daughter of Delphis Gaudet and Melina Germain dit Bélisle. I won’t go into this maternal lineage because this story will never end and probably end up in Acadia where the British deported the Acadian in 1755.
Now do you remember how all this started in the first place?
Visiting a cemetery behind a church in Bristol, Connecticut, with my 3rd cousin Joe.
