Judi wrote a comment two days ago. I told her I was going to write her a personal e-mail, but I changed my mind.
Sometimes people never write again after a comment or two.
This happened to me many times, and I don’t quite understand why peole would bother in the first place to write a comment on this blog.
I did not receive any more comment or message from Judi until two days ago… (edited version of comment)
I’ve been under the weather the last few days and haven’t had a chance to check my e-mail until now.
This has got to be the best day.
From the bottom of my heart I thank you for this detective work.
I am well aware that other’s need your help too, and I thank them also.
I will fill you in from this side backwards and I hope we will meet in the middle.
I am… daughter of … (born in 1908)
son of Lydia Ida Dague… (born 11/10/1867)
and … (born(8/1862)
Lydia’s parents were Stephen Dague (born 3/2/1827 in Canada) and Mary Ann (Marion) Dube (born 2/13/1837 in Canada)
Mary Ann’s parents were Abram Dube and Jane Olive Bear.
I have no info on Abram and Jane.
Stephen’s parents were Stephen Dague and Margaret(Marguerite) LaFrance from the Moscow Quebec area.
I am afraid that’s all I have except that my dad always said that grandma could speak no English and that she came from a place called Richelieu.
Have a good night.
I always sleep good at night Judi… and I always take good care of my readers.
As a footnote
Yesterday’s post was to prove a point. There is so much information in cyberspace that’s it’s hard not to get lost.
Getting back to Judi she had written this… from the Moscow Quebec area!!!
It got me thinking.
Could this be a lead to follow?
But there is no Moscow in Quebec.
Was Moscow, when you repeat it several times in your head, be Mascouche? Maska for Yamaska? the Maskoutain region?
So many clues that can lead us to dead ends in genealogy… I should know because I have been there so many times.
This search might never end…, but I don’t mind when people keep interested in what I write about Our Ancestors, yours or mine. Now I shall return on Monday and tell you all about Stephen Dague and Margaret(Marguerite) LaFrance.
I think I know who they really were.
