That’s a lot of posts since September 2009 on this blog about our ancestors and genealogy.
I never got around to post this one.
I wrote it in November 2011. I believe Fran, who is this man’s descendant, is the person who wrote me.
Jean-Baptiste Alexandre from Joe’s collection
Jean-Baptiste Alexandre or J. B. Alexander Junior is the brother of these two beautiful young women seen here on Joe’s collection of cabinet cards.
Philomene (Phoebe) Alexandre
J. B. might be also this other young woman’s brother.
I will probably never know who she is even I try to figure out how she is related to the Alexandre family.
Another far away distant relative of mine has just appeared out of the blue.
She had this picture among many others and what she wrote is this interesting comment…
I looked at the photos of Agnes and the third one from the left, the two sisters, this is the picture I have that say Myra and Phebe. When I looked at the attachment that Joe sent on these women I see that the birth ages are not consistent with the names on the photos. So my photo is the same as yours, I shall now get out all the pictures I have on this family and see if I can match any. I look forward to more of the same.
She said she had those names in the back… Myra and Phebe.
Sandy had her own theory about who those two were, and I concurred.
We thought we had Philomene Alexandre and Agnes Alexandre correctly identified according to Sandy’s theory.
Everything made sense back then…
But is what is on the back of my new found far away distant relative’s picture correct?
Could it be Phebe on the left and Myra on the right instead?
Sometimes what is on the back of pictures is written backwards…
Also, could Philomene had gone by the name Phebe?
So many questions have now arisen… from another far away distant relative of mine who has just appeared out of the blue.
Just like Dennis Lagasse IV last month.
This is going to be another great virtual family reunion.
End of the intermission…
Chrétien, tell me more about your family…
