Alice’s father is Médard Lemaire who changed his name to Medard Myers.
Sometimes we only have headstones to remember our ancestors. Sometimes we are lucky to have an old picture like this one of Médard.
If you want to know more about Alice who is in front of her father, write a comment. If you want to know more about this family, do likewise.
Isn’t Alice a cute little girl?
This is the original picture shared by someone in 2009. At that time, I knew nothing about these people except for Pépère whom I knew was my granduncle Dennis Lagasse III, my grandfather’s brother.
See what was missing.
East Bristol, Spring 1916
I modified the original picture on April 25th, 2015.
This next old family picture was shared in 2011 by a complete stranger, a fourth cousin, Dennis Lagasse IV.
Germaine Lagasse is the first child of Alice Myers and Victor Philippe Lagasse.
She’s David Victor Lagasse’s grandaunt.
Honouring the Fallen
This post is dedicated to the memory of my great great uncle Thomas Alexander Gillanders, who was killed in action one hundred years ago today, and to those who fought alongside him at Gallipoli.
Tom was a native of Inverness and the eldest of eleven children. He was a much-loved brother of my great-grandmother who fondly recalled the time he took her on a trip to Edinburgh when she was thirteen years old. He had recently spent some time working on a farm owned by cousins in Winnipeg but had returned announcing that he did not want to face another Canadian winter and had decided to try New Zealand. His father decided that the whole family would emigrate, as the other sons would likely follow Tom eventually anyway.
The family left for New Zealand in 1908 and in 1910 they…

My third cousin I never knew about
WATERBURY — Mr. Robert J. Miller Sr., age 62, of Perkins Avenue, passed away Sunday,
Oct. 26, 2008, at Waterbury Hospital. He was the former husband of Carol (Martone) Miller.
Mr. Miller was born on Sept. 18, 1946, in Waterbury, a son of the late Edsen R. and Antoinette (DiPietro) Miller Sr. A graduate of Croft High School, he owned and operated Robert Miller Carpeting for many years and also worked at Triangle Pacific Cabinets. He was an avid car and motorcycle enthusiast and enjoyed his 1961 Harley Sportster.
Robert is survived by his son, Robert J. Miller Jr. of Wolcott; his daughter, Danielle G. Miller and her husband, Stephen Polsinelli, of Carlsbad, Calif.; his brother, Edsen R. Miller Jr. and his wife, Patti, of South Kingston, R.I.; four grandchildren, Kevin R. Miller, Carolyn, Ava G. and Stephen M. Polsinelli; his aunt, Dorothy Spina of Waterbury; his longtime friend and companion, Linda Shea; as well as several nieces, nephews and cousins.
Who remembers his father Edsen Miller?
While I am waiting for David Victor Lagasse’s old pictures that he promised in a comment he made this week.
Frank Archambeault, a distant cousin of mine, scanned and sent me two weeks ago several tintype pictures of the Archambeault family to share with you.
Frank has fond memories of his grandmother Myra Alexandre who, back in 2010, was that unidentified young woman on the right on this picture sent in 2010 by Sandy, another distant cousin. Back then they were known as Bristol late 1890s’ sisters.
Flavie (Phoebe) Alexandre Lestage and Myra Alexandre Archambeault
There is another young woman on this tintype picture who is just begging to be identified.
She is on the left in the first row.
I presume all these young women are Archambeault sisters.
This is another picture Frank sent me. The young lady had a very familiar look.
Could she be Mary Archambeault, one of several daughters of Jean-Baptiste Archambeault and Emilia Mercier whom we see here in another tintype picture with their children?

That was the only picture I could find on the Internet on Joseph M. Lagassee.
The M stands for Miller. I had no idea where he got that middle name. I still don’t.
I could not find anything more about his only son Robert Lagasse. Until Susan broke the news.
Joseph’s middle name was used on this…
Robert was Edwina Newcity’s only child. I thought back in 2012 he never married.
