I was searching everywhere for my ancestors but I had reached a dead end…
I was not going anywhere. I could not find my paternal ancestors, but I kept on looking, and looking, and looking.
I was searching for all the Lagasses I could lay my hands on.
This is where I found this Pierre Lagasse who was married to Marceline Davies.
She died in 1906 from a heart disease.
I felt like an adopted descendant.
So I got curious.
Little did I know back in 2008 that this Pierre Lagasse (I have the same name except at the end), born in 1825, was my great-great-grandfather’s brother.
He had married Marcelline David not Davies.
Looking at her death certificate I wondered who was that A. P. Lagasse, the undertaker.
I got curious some more and I found this picture on the Internet.
That was the picture of Adolphe Pierre Lagasse, the undertaker who did the embalming of his mother Marcelline David…
Then I got even more curious when I found out that Adolphe Pierre Lagasse’s brother was Idala Lagasse. This is how Idala Lagasse led me to his granddaughter Alice who was looking for her roots since 2000…
