Philomène Lagacé and her daughters

This picture might never have seen the light of day if not for the Internet. My distant cousin Joe had it in his collection of old pictures. Joe had a lot of old pictures and most were unknown people to him like these women you see here.

That was back in 2010.

Four years later Patricia can see her great-great-grandmother Philomene Lagasse in the middle.

Post 781, that’s a lot isn’t?

I just hope you don’t think I’m a kook looking for these women’s descendants…

Patricia, I think your great-grandmother Philomene Alexandre is at 2 o’clock.

Denis Lagasser

Hard to link Dennis Lagasse II aka Stanislas Lagacé II to this Denis Lagasser in the 1920 U.S. Census.

Denis Lagasser 1920

Denis or Dennis or Stanislas was a widower in 1920.

Dennis Lagasse II1842-1927

Lavina Duke was a widow in 1920. Dennis was living with his daughter and her children probably since 1907 after the death of his wife Henriette Alexandre.

Lavina Duke was not her real name. Her name was in fact Malvina Lagacé Dubé. Her husband was Joseph Dubé and not Duke. So you see how it’s hard for someone to link this ancestor to his or her family tree…

1920 Denis Lagasser

Here is Malvina in the 1910 U.S. Census… Melvina Dube.

Dennis Lagasse 1910Again wrong given name, but right surname. Malvina is a widow. Joseph Dubé probably died after 1906 because he fathered a child, Marie Louise who is four years-old in 1910.

This is where I come in if you are related…
