Eddie Lagase

Who’s Eddie Lagase whose name appears on this page Chris Carpenter scanned?

I wish I had a picture of Eddie to show you this morning.

Called to express sympathy 2

Eddie will have to be just a name for now or for eternity since he never married and has no descendants to look for him.

Eddie could be on this picture though, but I have no way to tell.

I know who is Levi Lagasse whose name is also found on the page, and I have a picture to show you.


Levi Napoleon Lagasse

This picture was one of the first pictures someone sent me in 2011. He wrote me a message telling me Levi was his grandfather.

I could not believe it at first.

I knew Levi was Amanda Menard’s  (in the red circle) and Dennis Lagassey’s son (Dennis is the last man on the right).

I have so many pictures now thanks to Levi’s grandson Dennis.

More than 100 to share with everyone!

Some people on some of these pictures might be Maynards. Maybe I will find out someday…

So who is this Eddie Lagase whose just a name on a page in a condolences book scanned by Chris Carpenter?

He is the brother of Frank Lagasse, the best man’s seen on this wedding picture scanned by Robin who lives on the West Coast and who is not even directly related to me. She also scanned more than 100 pictures for me so I could share them on this blog.

I don’t think Eddie Lagase ever married, but his brother Frank Lagasse did.

Thanks to Chris’ excitement, I got curious and I started searching for more information on Frank Lagasse who was this couple’s first son.

Sophie Archambault and Frank Lagasse Senior

Frank Lagasse or Lagase married Eugenie (Jennie) Elsensohn born around 1891.

That I did not know until I got curious.


Remember what someone said on this blog…

    • I am a decendent of Frank Lagase and Jennie Elsensohn. I can slightly remember Ed who was
      Frank’s brother. Frank died when I was 10 years old and his brothers followed soon.

      • We’re cousins then, and I know all about the Lagasse lineage.
        I might say I found all about that branch, and I am sharing all.
        Everything is free!

  3. My name is Mary Bauer and I have just found this website. I am a granddaughter of Francis Lagase and Jenny Elsensohn. I remember my great uncle Ed.
