With what we know now, some of Robin’s pictures are related to the Alexandres and not to the Bleaus.
This is who I believe is Marie Elmire Alexandre.
We have some pictures of someone who is identified as Aunt Mary Alexander in Robin’s collection.
Mary was never married.
She was born Marie Elmire Alexandre on March 27, 1881.
This I know for sure.
I have her birth certificate.
I think Joe once told me that she went by the name of Mary.
Here are a few pictures of Aunt Mary in Robin’s collection. You decide if my presumption is correct.
If the captions are right, Mary is on the left in the back row.
Her sister Agnes Alexandre is in the picture with her daughter Sylvia Bleau and her granddaughter Sylvia Combe.
This is the original picture Robin had.
She said it was sad to have the names right on the picture.
So I did a little editing in my spare time…
Now maybe we have identified one more of Jean-Baptiste Alexandre’s daughter in Robin’s photo collection… Aunt Mary Alexander.
Mary never married so she had no descendants to search for her.
But that does not deter me a bit to talk about Aunt Mary.
As a footnote, Robin contacted some relatives.
One is 93 years old and she is elated someone is searching for her ancestors.
This is all it’s all about.
Sharing to make someone else happy… even if they are strangers.
