Antoinette Lagasse Perkins

No problem identifying Antoinette who is my first cousin once removed and Odna’s little sister.

Antoinette is in front between Ida and Joseph. Alice Rose is on the right with the big smile.

Antoinette is Toni according to Donna.

[About Odna] One of her sisters was named Mary and the youngest was Antoinette “Toni”.  Those are the two I remember knowing in my youth.

That’s the only picture I have of Toni.

I have several pictures of her sister Alice Rose who is in front on this picture.


Antoinette Lagasse was born August 1st, 1907, 105 years ago. None of her descendants has contacted me yet.

The reason is quite simple.

I have not written about her that much and I believe she had only one child: Raymond born in 1926 according to the 1940 U.S. Census.

Toni married Elmer Perkins in 1925. Elmer is a bartender in 1940.

Toni’s sister Alice Rose is seen here on this picture sitting on the rear fender.

This has to be Frank Ritchie’s car.

There is not much to talk about because that’s all the information I have on her, and I will probably never receive any comment from one of her descendants.

  1. I remember Aunt Toni as I knew her. She did have the one child Raymond. Not sure what happened to her husband, however when I was young and in school she was living with a man named George who was the custodian at my school. Toni at that time lived in a mobile home in Plainville. I would love going to visit her because she had a pet monkey. It was always fun going to see her. She seemed like a free spirit to me.

  2. Such great photos, and I love the way you organized the information here, too, especially broadening the view of the photo so that I could focus first on her, then the other, then the car.
