This might be the most important post on this blog about our ancestors.
Maybe someone out there on cyberspace is looking for his or her ancestors like Dennis Lagasse was in 2011. I had seen Dennis Lagasse’s message on a genealogy forum that Dennis had left in 2008 if I don’t have these senior moments once again.
I’m the son of Lionel Lagasse and the grandson of Levi N. Lagasse and Marie Louise (Dube) Lagasse. Levi was one of twelve children born to my great-grandfather Dennis, and the Lagasse name was spelled with a “y” at the end for a time. My great-grandfather Dennis was killed in 1921 in an industrial accident while working in Bristol CT. U.S.A.
Are there any others with a great-grandfather Dennis in their family tree?
Luckily I had kept his message in my files so I can share it again with you.
This morning I just got the urge to write again on my blog as I was taking my shower. I always get my ideas for this blog while taking my shower or while I am doing the dishes.
I have learned that when I get an urge to write about our ancestors on Our Ancestors I do so…
So what is this all about a candy maker whose name was Cayo?
Mary Evelyne Cayo was born in June 1880 according to the 1900 U.S. Census in Burlington. The census says she was a candy maker and her father was a mason.
I got curious because I am not sure Peter Cayo is a descendant of Pierre Cadieux and Françoise Trudeau who got married in February 1822. Their first child was Onésime, a little girl born just three months after their marriage. Children born out of wedlocks in those days were often abandonned.
Luckily for me she was not and became my lost great-great-grandmother. She was of course Dennis Lagasse’s ancestors. I will continue with this story later…
The urge has just left me momentarily.
