A reflection about genealogy and famous people…
It’s a well-known fact that Dennis Lagasse IV is very proud of his ancestor André Mignier dit La Gâchette since 2011 when we connected for the first time in October 2011.
Dennis being very proud of his ancestor is a well-known fact if he is your friend on Facebook of course…
Dennis posted this on a forum in February 2004.
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?
In 2004 I was not interested a bit about genealogy, but in 2011 when he contacted me…

Then you just have to write me and I will make you famous on my blog just like I did with Dennis Lagasse.

Denis Lagasser was just an old man in the 1920 U.S census. 77, a carpenter… a jober. He was living on Lake Street on the corner of Dewey.
His son Dennis Lagassey was living next door.
You know all about Dennis Lagasse II and his son Dennis Lagasse III don’t you?
Denis Lagasser (Dennis Lagasse II) was the brother of Philomène Lagasse.
Philomène is also the old lady sitting with her two daughters Agnes and Mary. The young lady is Sylvia Bleau, daughter of Agnes Alexandre and David Bleau. The old lady was probably a widow when this picture was taken since her husband had died in 1914. He would be on pictures taken from that time frame.
Since I have none then…
So the caption about 1913 could be wrong. I have no idea. Dates are important but not that much unless you have them. People are.
I go crazy about people and old pictures.
This is why I got all excited when Patricia wrote last month and then later got all excited about what she had found on her new found extended family.
This is also why all this excitement lead me to write post 785.
I will see you next Monday.
