Hard to link Dennis Lagasse II aka Stanislas Lagacé II to this Denis Lagasser in the 1920 U.S. Census.
Denis or Dennis or Stanislas was a widower in 1920.
Lavina Duke was a widow in 1920. Dennis was living with his daughter and her children probably since 1907 after the death of his wife Henriette Alexandre.
Lavina Duke was not her real name. Her name was in fact Malvina Lagacé Dubé. Her husband was Joseph Dubé and not Duke. So you see how it’s hard for someone to link this ancestor to his or her family tree…
Here is Malvina in the 1910 U.S. Census… Melvina Dube.
Again wrong given name, but right surname. Malvina is a widow. Joseph Dubé probably died after 1906 because he fathered a child, Marie Louise who is four years-old in 1910.
This is where I come in if you are related to Joseph, Irene, Alice, Bernice or Louise Dube. I can help with your Dubé and Lagacé ancestors.
Then this is where you come in and to try help me identify these people on this picture.
This is how Dennis IV and I connected in 2011 and how he shared more than 100 pictures.
This is one of them.
This has to be a wedding picture taken around 1920. Dennis II is there in the middle of the last row. His son Dennis III is in the middle above the newly-weds. I am still searching who they are. I believe this is Bertha Lagasse, Dennis III’s daughter.
It would make sense.
I believe Malvina is next to Dennis II on the left side in the white blouse as well as Lillie Lagasse his other daughter with her husband Eugene Dube by her side.
It would make sense since the Dubés and the Lagacés were very close to each other…
Down the road, I hope, someone will be able to help with putting names on people still unidentified on the picture above just like I helped someone back in 2009 in identifying these four persons on this picture.
She wanted to throw this picture away.
Dennis II, Dennis III, his son Harry with his son Gerard H. Lagasse born June 9th, 1916 and who died on March 25, 1998.
I think Gerard H. Lagasse never got married so no one is looking for him.
No one except myself…
