William Lagasse was my grandfather’s nephew.
I don’t believe Léo Lagacé Senior ever met William, but maybe he did. I don’t believe he ever knew what had happened to William either, but then maybe he did.
I never knew anything about William Lagasse. He was just a name in my genealogy data bank. William Lagasse was the son of Antoine Lagacé (Anthony Lagasse) and Délia Bertrand. This is who I believe are Antoine and Délia.
This photo was sent to me by Sandy, my not so distant cousin anymore in the United States. Sandy does not know who they are, but we think it could be them.
Maybe we could be wrong. The man looks a lot like a Lagacé (Lagasse).
On the left is Stanislas Lagasse born in 1842 and on the right is his son Stanislas born in 1864
Antoine was Stanislas’ son and was born in 1863. William is Antoine’s son and was born in 1888 the same year his uncle Léo Lagacé Senior was born.
I am sure my great-grandfather Stanislas learned what happened to his grandson William in 1918. I am sure he did because he lived till 1927.
