This is what I replied yesterday to Fran who left a comment after reading Amanda.
Amanda was my grandmother’s aunt.
Does Donna have any photos of Amanda’s parents or siblings, Zephirin, Marie Rose, Elmira, Napoleon, Isidore, Abline, Charles, Jean Baptiste, or Caroline, my grandmother?
That picture of Amanda is much more than an old picture of an old woman on an old couch.
One day someone will send me a picture of Henriette Alexandre, my great-grandmother who had 13 children, the last one being my grandfather Leo.
This blog pays homage to my ordinary ancestors and also yours because I have shared all my research since 2009. Ordinary ancestors like Dennis Lagasse II who left this Earth in 1927…
He was 84.
9 August 1842 – 5 June 1927
His father Stanislas Lagassée who also died at the age of 84.
16 February 1816 – 26 March 1900
Leo was her last child and Henriette Alexandre’s first son was Antoine.
Well I think Antoine is on the left.
Antoine is resting in peace probably with his father and grandfather.
Someday someone will send me a photo of Amanda’s parents or siblings, Zephirin, Marie Rose, Elmira, Napoleon, Isidore, Abline, Charles, Jean Baptiste, or Caroline, Fran’s grandmother.
