Then you just have to write me and I will make you famous on my blog just like I did with Dennis Lagasse.
Dennis Lagasse aka Stanislas Lagacé II
Denis Lagasser was just an old man in the 1920 U.S census. 77, a carpenter… a jober. He was living on Lake Street on the corner of Dewey.
His son Dennis Lagassey was living next door.
You know all about Dennis Lagasse II and his son Dennis Lagasse III don’t you?
Denis Lagasser (Dennis Lagasse II) was the brother of Philomène Lagasse.
Philomène is also the old lady sitting with her two daughters Agnes and Mary. The young lady is Sylvia Bleau, daughter of Agnes Alexandre and David Bleau. The old lady was probably a widow when this picture was taken since her husband had died in 1914. He would be on pictures taken from that time frame.
Since I have none then…
So the caption about 1913 could be wrong. I have no idea. Dates are important but not that much unless you have them. People are.
I go crazy about people and old pictures.
This is why I got all excited when Patricia wrote last month and then later got all excited about what she had found on her new found extended family.
This is also why all this excitement lead me to write post 785.
I will see you next Monday.
Now I know all about Mary thanks to Robin my A-team member.
There were so many pictures Robin scanned to look at that some were left to be identified later… much later.
This one is directly related to my distant relatives.
cousin Mary Malloy
Sylvia Elizabeth Bleau, Agnes Alexandre’s daughter, wrote the caption when we compare both handwriting.
At first I thought I was no expert at people’s handwriting, but now I am sure this is Mary Malloy with Sylvia Elizabeth Bleau’s handwriting.
Mary Malloy or Molloy is the daughter of Philomène Alexandre and Thomas Molloy. Philomène would be at 2 o’clock.
Now what about Mary Malloy?
Who did she marry?
Did she have any descendants?
Will any descendant write me a message like Patricia did last month?
And what about this man’s picture?
Could he be Mary’s brother?
And now I know who she is!
This picture might never have seen the light of day if not for the Internet. My distant cousin Joe had it in his collection of old pictures. Joe had a lot of old pictures and most were unknown people to him like these women you see here.
That was back in 2010.
Four years later Patricia can see her great-great-grandmother Philomene Lagasse in the middle.
Post 781, that’s a lot isn’t?
I just hope you don’t think I’m a kook looking for these women’s descendants…
Patricia, I think your great-grandmother Philomene Alexandre is at 2 o’clock.
I have a new third cousin once removed that I will write about next week. This week someone wrote me. I had been 2 years since she had written. There was a good reason for not writing.
She is related to this Alice.
I had written about this Alice on this blog. She is NOT Michael’s birthgrandmother even if I thought at first she might have been. Alice was a very common given name in the late 1800s and early 1900s.
Point of fact…
If I write about Alice Lagasse this morning it’s because I got the green light to post this picture. It’s her son’s wedding picture shared in 2012 by one of my readers.
Frobe Caron was a third cousin once removed. He married Evelina Couet. They had at least these children.
Armand George Caron 1925 – 1997
Beatrice Phyllis Caron 1929 – 1998
If you are related, then you should write to me like Patricia did last month about the Alexandres and the Malloys.
I believe that Philomene Alexandre and Thomas Malloy are the great grandparents I have been searching for. My father was Francis J Malloy who was son of Ada Pendlebury and Thomas J Malloy. He was placed in an orphanage in 1914 so little is known about his family. Would you share any information you have.
