This is much more than a burial act.
19 February 1875
Just look who signed!
P A. Lagassé
N. A. Doré
François Xavier Lagassé
Now look again… with someone’s picture.
This is P A. Lagassé.
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.
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?
