It’s a well-known fact that Dennis Lagasse IV is very proud of his ancestor André Mignier dit La Gâchette since 2011 when we connected for the first time in October 2011.
Dennis being very proud of his ancestor is a well-known fact if he is your friend on Facebook of course…
Dennis posted this on a forum in February 2004.
I’m the son of Lionel Lagasse and the grandson of Levi N. Lagasse and Marie Louise (Dube) Lagasse. Levi was one of twelve children born to my great-grandfather Dennis, and the Lagasse name was spelled with a “y” at the end for a time. My great-grandfather Dennis was killed in 1921 in an industrial accident while working in Bristol CT. U.S.A. Are there any others with a great-grandfather Dennis in their family tree?
In 2004 I was not interested a bit about genealogy, but in 2011 when he contacted me after Googling something on Google it opened many doors.
Going back to Catherine de Baillon, it’s a well-known fact she came from a well-known family. She has no Facebook page though, but she has a lot of descendants.
Most of her descendants don’t know that fact.
What is not well-known, and probably will never be, is why she came to New France in the first place.
I used to be a little sarcastic when I wrote about Emeril, my 8th cousin.
When people know they are linked to the Lagacés or the Lagasses, they get all excited and they want to know if they are related to Emeril.
I am not.
I get excited only when I discover new things about your ancestors whether they are related to Emeril…
or Brad Pitts.
That’s a joke.
I know nothing about his genealogy.
Getting back to Catherine de Baillon, she was une fille du Roi.
That’s how people called unmarried women leaving France to get married in New France. They were not the real daughters of the king.
Here are Catherine de Baillon’s ancestors… She has a few kings as direct ancestors.
Ligne ascendante de Catherine Baillon à Charlemagne

Catherine married Jacques Miville dit Deschênes on November 12, 1669. They had these children:
I MIVILLE Marie-Catherine (1670-1715)
II MIVILLE dit Deschesnes Charles (1671-1743)
III MIVILLE dit Deschênes Jean (1672-1711)
IV MIVILLE dit Deschênes Marie (1675-1677)
V MIVILLE dit Deschênes Charles (1677-1758)
VI MIVILLE dit Deschênes Marie-Claude (1681-…)
Charles Miville dit Deschênes dit le jeune, born in 1677, is Dennis Lagasse IV’s ancestor on the Dubé side thanks to his grandmother Marie-Louise.
That’s not a joke Dennis…
Charlemagne is your direct ancestor.
Now, are you related somewhat to Dennis Lagasse IV?
If you are, then Merry Christmas, and may God bless all your descendants.
See you in 2013.
