Much More Than a Burial Act

This is much more than a burial act.

Antoine Mignier 1797-1875

Just look who signed!

Pierre Lagassé

P A. Lagassé

Henry Lagassé

N. A. Doré

Isidor Lagassé

François Xavier Lagassé

Now look again… with someone’s picture.

This is P A. Lagassé.

Adolphe Lagasse

Pierre-Adolphe Lagasse
1851-1922

Pierre-Adolphe Lagasse was Antoine’s grandson. Henry, Isidore were also Antoine’s grandsons. The first person who signed as a witness to Antoine’s burial was his son Pierre, Pierre-Adolphe’s father.

Pierre is a common given name with the Lagacés as you can tell by the guy who is writing this blog…

My journey to find my ancestors started in 2007 and the journey to find your ancestors started in 2009. There is a wonderful story that evolved from my search for your ancestors.

It started with this… which led to this… and this…

and this…

and this.

So in a sense this is much more than a common burial act...

It’s about my great-great-great-grandfather’s burial act.

Now what about this baptisimal act of Jean-Antoine Migné dit Lagassé?

Same ancestor.
