So now we have identified another descendant of Stanislas Lagasse I (1816-1900)…
A new grandson.
JB Alexander was the son of Philomene Lagasse who was Stanislas Lagasse I’s daughter.
Since 2010 we have been able to identify many descendants.
I knew a lot about Jean-Baptiste Alexandre with this obituary that Joe had sent me in 2010

Born in St. Charles, P.Q., Canada , on June 28, 1862?
I don’t think so…
June 23, 1862 in Notre-Dame-de-Stanbridge. His godfather was Stanislas Lagacé, his maternal grandfather, and Marguerite Marchand his paternal grandmother.
Another beautiful chapter opens up on this blog as many more thousands Americans will link up with their ancestors thanks to JB Alexander having been identified and to a lot more information to help us.
