I did not know that expression until I visited Joe…
I had a lot of senior moments during my trip to Connecticut trying to remember some of the names while I was visiting cemeteries with Joe and Frank.
We visited St. Thomas and St. Joseph cemeteries if I remember the names correctly.
As usual I took a lot of pictures.
You never know when these will help in further research.
We started first at St. Thomas cemetery which I had visited last year.
Frank Archambeault was looking for some of his ancestors buried there, but he could not find any headstones that would lead him to them. I took this picture where some of his ancestors would be buried.
My great-grandfather Dennis Lagasse (1842-1927) and his father Stanislas Lagacé (1816-1900) have to be also buried at St. Joseph’s, but I only found two of Dennis Lagasse’s sons’ headstones:
Stanislas Lagassey… who died in 1922.
And Anthony Lagasse… who died in 1934.
William, one of Anthony’s son, died in 1918, but he is not buried there. In fact nobody could ever find his burial place.
Even if I had senior moments while visiting the cemeteries, I can never forget how, when, and where William Lagasse died.
Next time, more on this story.
