I am glad I did not argue with my third cousin Sandy.
I had a good look last night at some of my collection of old photos sent by the A-Team.
This was the most mysterious one.
It still is.
This montage was done in Bristol by the Gale Studio around 1900. These are all of Philomene Lagasse’s daughters around her.
Philomene Lagasse is my great-grandfather’s sister.
Philomene Lagasse had these children:
Jean-Baptiste Alexandre 1862 – 1936
Joséphine Alexandre 1863 – 1868
Philomène Alexandre 1864 – 1906
Siffroid Alexandre 1866 – ?
Helene Alexandre 1867 – ?
David Alexandre 1869 – 1933
Agnes Alexandre 1871 – 1927
Phoebe Alexandre 1874 – ?
Peter Alexandre 1875 – ?
Myra Alexandre 1877 – 1958
Marie Elmire Alexandre 1881 – 1957
Anonyme Alexandre 1883 – 1883
I always thought this was Agnes Alexandre in the montage.
This montage was made last night with pictures sent by three persons who never met in person: Joe, Robin, and Sandy.
Joe sent me this one early in 2011…
Robin sent me this one late in 2011…
Aunt Mary Alexander
Sandy sent me this one in the fall of 2010.
In 2010, when Sandy and I met virtually for the first time on the Internet, we had not idea who this young woman was.
Sometimes it takes time to figure out who are people on old pictures.
