In search of Marie-Anne Lagasse’s descendants

Marie-Anne Lagasse could be on this picture, but I doubt it. I think it’s more the Newcity sisters.

Why go on a search for Marie-Anne’s descendants?

Why not.

I have no picture of Marie-Anne nor of her father Stanislas Lagacé I. This is all I have of Stanislas… his certificate of death and some census pages.

Stanislas Lagacé 1816-1900

If I have been writing so much about my ancestors and also yours since 2009, it’s because there are probably some pictures of Stanislas hidden somewhere in an old dusty wooden chest behind a pile of old objects in a dark attic somewhere in the U.S. that some of Marie-Anne’s descendants might have and can’t figure out who is who on those old pictures…

Like these…

But then Stanislas might have been the spitting image of his son Joseph.

Our Ancestors

Why not go on a search for Marie-Anne’s descendants?

Sandy sent me a message yesterday about Marie-Anne Lagasse. She had entered some information on my Ancestry tree.

I have no picture of Marie-Anne nor of her father, my great-great-grandfather Stanislas Lagacé (1816) who bears the same given name as my great-grandfather Stanislas Lagacé who I call Stanislas 1842 since he also named one of his sons Stanislas who I call Stanislas 1864.

This is all I have of Stanislas 1816… his certificate of death and some census pages.

Stanis Lagassey’s Log Cabin

Written in 2013 when Joseph was just a name on a headstone.

Our Ancestors

No picture of the one-story log cabin, but the 1861 Census is showing that Stanislas Lagacé (1816-1900) was living in a log cabin with his little family.

I will make you believe that this is his log cabin even though this is a two-story log cabin…

Why can’t I make you believe that my great-great-grandfather lived in this log cabin?

I can rewrite history like the Port Huron Museum did with Mitchell Lagassa’s log cabin.

This is a page taken from the 1861 Canadian Census in Missiquoi County before Canada was even born (1867).

1861 Stanis Lagassey

This is a real document taken on this Website. It’s the first time it is available on the Internet.

Pure gold!

Stanislas Lagacé, who was a farmer in Stanbridge, has his name entered as Stanis Lagassey. But I know this is my great-great-grandfather. He is 46 years old and he is living with his wife Onésime…
