Adolphe Lagacé… Lagace… LaGasse… Lagassé… Final answer

March 14, 1851

Here is the baptism act of Pierre Adolphe Lagassé… He was baptized in Notre-Dame-des-Anges church in Notre-Dame-de-Stanbridge in Québec.

I told you that people wrote Lagacé in many different ways.

In the case of Adolphe Lagassé, who became Adolph Lagasse in New Bedford, Massachusetts, his last name is really Lagassé since his father signed his name in the act.

His godfather was Antoine Lagassé, my great-great-great-grandfather. Now that’s great!

As for Alice Lagasse, Adolph’s daughter, I found someone else on the Ancestry forum searching for her.

I wrote that person an e-mail even though she posted the message in 2000.

Better late than never…

See you next time.

Tomorrow is Christmas. I sure hope that person gets my e-mail or that Bob LaGasse writes me.
