Young Man 1

We now know that young man 1 was Jean-Baptiste Alexandre born in 1862.

I presume that young man 2 is Jean-Baptiste’s younger brother.

I presume.

I have got to start somewhere.

Who could he be?

We might find a clue in their mother’s obituary…

Philomene LAGASSE-59
Death (12 March 1920): BRISTOL PRESS 13 March 1920

Mrs. Libbie Alexander widow of the late John Alexander died at the home of her son David Alexander 149 Park St. last evening as a result of complications due to old age.
She had been an invalid for several years.

Mrs. Alexander was born in Quebec, Canada 79 years ago. She spent her early years there. She was married in 1869 to John Alexander. They moved to the state and lived for some time in North Adams, Mass. They came to Bristol twenty six years ago and made their home here. Mr. Alexander died in 1914.

Mrs. Alexander is survived by four daughters: Mrs. David Bleau, Mrs. William Archambeault and Miss Mary Alexander of Bristol and Mrs. Phoebe Lustrich of Brooklyn, NY. By Three sons: John, David, and Peter Alexander all of Bristol, and by many grand children and great grand children, she was one of the well known French residents and was a member of St. Ann’s Church.

The funeral will be held at St. Ann’s Church at 9 o’clock Monday morning. Rev. Joseph P. Perreault will conduct the services.

John is still living in 1920 as well as David and Peter.

I would presume young man 2 could be either David Alexandre or Peter Alexandre.

But then I could be wrong and Young Man 2 could be Siffroid!
