What about this clue I found on the Internet among the other clues? Is it valid information or just information copied from someone’s else research?
One clue tells all!
Michel Mignier born around 1610 died in 1727!
117 years old!
Suspicious enough not to trust everything I found yesterday in my search for George Lagasse who married Albertine Deschênes.
I have learned not to trust everything I find on the Internet, or people who say they know it all. Having been hooked on genealogy since 2007 because of old pictures like this one…
I have learned more than just who were my ancestors. Always check first, then check again, and again.
This being said…
This information seems valid though.
I can corroborate this information with this.
Joseph L. Lagassé’s family is seen here. Joseph’s wife is Ellen Lagassé who was in fact Helen Grant whose daughter was Anna Ellen Lagassé born in 1900 whose real name was…
Mrs. Lejeune was the mid-wife.
In 1901, Joseph was a carpenter. Ernest Thibeault was a lodger, and I suspect he was related somewhat to Joseph’s first wife Marie Thibault, Napoléon’s mother.
Marie Thibault probably died when she gave birth to Marie Julia in 1896.
Joseph had to remarry, and he found a new wife living not far from where he lived…
The puzzle started in 2010 when I wrote this post.
Two interested people commented, one in 2011, and the other in 2015.
Albertine (Deschene) Lagasse, 91, of New Britain, died Saturday (Oct. 16, 2010) at the Jerome Home in New Britain. Born in Baker Lake, Canada, the daughter of the late Dennis and Agnes (Boutot) Deschene, she lived most of her life in New Britain. She had been employed at a watch factory in Waterbury and retired from the Fafnir Bearing Co. (now Textron) in New Britain. She was the wife of the late George Lagasse.
Albertine is survived by three sons Robert Blouin of Florida, Gene Lagasse of Rhode Island and Florida, and George Lagasse of Colorado; a sister Martha Roy of Bristol, several nieces and nephews including Cynthia Tenan and numerous grandchildren. She was predeceased by two sons Larry Lagasse and Maurice Lagasse.
Funeral services were held privately.
The Brault name struck a cord when I was searching for French-Canadian names with Joe in St. Joseph Cemetery in Bristol. So I took three pictures just to be sure I could read the names later.
Elmire Brault’s name was easy to read, but her husband’s name was hard to clearly see.
I could make out Fanie Lupien, but it looked like Fannie, a woman’s name.
So I got thinking… and thinking, and looking…
Lo and behold Fanie Lupien’s name was somewhere on a list!
I never plan before writing something on this blog.
I don’t know if someone or something is guiding me…
I just write like hell!
Walking through a cemetery in 2013 with cousin Joe led me to Steve Myers and also to Jason West.
Agnes Lagaser wife of Leon Saucier
I still had many headstone pictures taken from that cemetery that I would have liked to try searching for descendants of the deceaded knowing how precious this would have been if someone should be finding his or her ancestors through Our Ancestors.
