I Do!

Of course he does.

Ron Depatie, a loyal reader, said I do in a comment.

He knew right off the bat that I would have written about that headstone anyway.

What Ron does not know is how I found that headstone and the link to the Red Sox.



My third cousin Joe is a Red Sox fan and he is the one who took me on a little sightseeing tour of St. Joseph Church Cemetery in Bristol, Connecticut.

What Ron does not know also is that Agnes Lagaser is in fact this man’s sister, my great-grandfather Dennis Lagasse aka Stanislas Lagacé.

Dennis Lagasse II

B Strong…

Agnes was Dennis Lagasse’s little sister seen here in the 1852 Canadian Census.

I knew Agnes had married Julian Myers (aka Julien Lemaire).

But I did not know Agnes had remarried after Julian died in 1886.

This genealogical finding opens new doors to find that elusive picture I am looking for of Henriette Alexandre who was Marguerite Alexandre’s sister seen here on this picture from Joe’s collection of old pictures.

So without further ado, I will start looking for descendants of Agnes and maybe find someone who has old pictures of people he or she does not have the faintest idea who they are.

I thought I would get a lot of comments about that headstone.

Guess I was dead wrong.

Maybe that does not pique my loyal readers’ curiosity.

They should have written a comment.

Yesterday 22 visitors looked at 225 pages on this blog.

Not a single comment.

I wonder why I have been writing that much since September 2009.

You don’t have to write a comment. I know the answer to that question. Now, do you want to know more about that headstone?

Just say I do… and the next post will be about Agnes Lagaser and the Boston Red Sox.
