Happy Thanksgiving to all the Lagacés in the U.S.

This is a great week.

One of Pierre Adolph Lagasse’s descendant wrote this comment on my blog…

Pierre Adolph Lagasse

My Grandmother was Marie (Blanche) Lagasse.

I have some family photos that I would love to share and hopefully have some help identifying the people in one of the large family photos.

This is the picture Linda sent me…


It was taken in 1905.

Valéda Lagasse née Forand is  holding Blanche Lagasse.

I had written an article on Blanche. Blanche was the daughter of Valéda Forand and Frobe Lagasse. Frobe died in 1915.

Someone was asking a question on a genealogy forum…

I am looking for ancestors of Louis Robitaille (b. 1902?), husband to Marie Blanche Lagasse (b. 1904?), and father of Edward Robitaille (b. 1922?) and Marie Delores Robitaille (b. 1924).

All four were born in Massachusetts.

According to Census, Louis’ parents were both born in French Canada. In 1920, he was a lodger at a boarding house in New Bedford, MA.

His soon to be wife was the daughter of Frobe Lagasse and Valida M. Forand, the operators of the boarding house.

I have no information on Louis’ parents or family and would like to trace them to Canada.

Well, I think if this person is still searching on the Internet, he is going to find this blog and maybe have the answers he has been searching for and see what Edward and Dolly look like…

Happy Thanksgiving… whoever you are…

  1. Do you have any idea what ‘Frobe’ is short for? I’m just wondering, because I have several male Valentines from that time/place that go by ‘Frobe’. In their case, it is short for ‘Frobisher’….

      What Does Frobe Mean?
      The essence of the given name Frobe stands for innovation, independence, determination, courage, sincerity and activity.

      It is often strong personalities who have this name. Energetic, charismatic, ambitious and focused.

      Born to be an executive. If they have true passion for something, they can give everything for it.

      However this also works both ways. If others want to force on to them things which do not inspire, they can totally refuse to go along.

      In regards to love they like to have varied and new experiences if possible.
