Our Ancestors

Robert was born in 1880.

I don’t think he did anything extraordinary in his life.  At least nothing about him on the Internet. I did not find him any descendants.

Robert was the son of Joseph Lagasse and Edwina Newcity.

You see where I am going don’t you.

Robert was Dennis Lagasse II’s nephew. I probably have a picture of Robert, Edwina or Joseph in my collection of unidentified ancestors.

Maybe they will never be identified.

Robert Lagasse is the one who guided me to the Newcity family while I was looking for my great-grandfather’s siblings.

Robert guided me to his parents’ headstone.

Then this headstone led me to Calista’s headstone.

Edwina is a direct descendant of Mathurin Villeneuve.

This is a text from the Villeneuve family association. It’s in French.

Mathurin Villeneuve est le fils de Mathieu et de Jeanne Chauchet…

Henry Edward Moquin and Aurelie were my grandparents, I have a photo of Henry and Lilian I can share.

I  believe  in sharing, but I respect  the decision  of people not to. I have kept  my words since 2009 and it has always  paid off. Larry told me how Aurelie died in a personal message.

To be on the safe side, I had asked him if I could post on the blog the picture he sent of Henry Moquin and Lillian…

Henri and Lilian

Yes you have my permission to post…

About how Aurelie died, I think I can tell you.

Aurelie died at the end of Spanish Flu Pandemic, my father Francis Napoleon was 8 then. He said the his mother and Lillian looked very much alike which confused his friends.

Your Dube information helped me fill the gap to where Dictionnaire Genealogique des Familles Canadiennes stopped. I also have a photo of Aurelie, but I need to do some restoration work before I send it to you.


Henry Edward Moquin

About looking for ancestors…

Last night Larry wrote this comment on Our Ancestors about his ancestors.

Our Ancestors

This is post no. 375!

I wrote a lot about Our Ancestors… yours and mine since September 2009.

I always find a lot of pleasure when I help people in their search.

Judy was someone I helped finding her ancestor Jules Moquin. She told me about Jules’ nephew Henry Edward Moquin who remarried after Aurelie’s death in 1920.

Henry Edward Moquin was born May 6, 1883, in French Lake, Minnesota, He died July 4, 1969. He remarried Mary Lily (Lillian) Dubé.

Who was Mary Lily (Lillian) Dubé?

Pretty confusing isn’t?

At first I thought Mary Lily (Lillian) was Lillie Lagasse’s daughter, but I was wrong. She was Lillie’s niece, the daughter of Napoleon Dubé and Mary Emmons. Mary Emmons (it could be Émond) was Napoleon’s first wife.

Henry Edward Moquin fathered two children with his new wife Lillian, Aurelia’s youngest sister: Norman and Bernice.

I have a picture of Henry and…
