Rose Marie Louise Bernadette Lagasse (1894-1973)

Eugène Moreau et Rose Lagacé

I can’t remember who sent me this picture of Eugene Moreau and Rose Marie Louise Bernadette Lagasse who was Idala Lagasse and Albina Quintin’s daughter.

I met Idala in 2008 for the first time. We met on the Internet on a page of the 1901 Canadian census.

1901 Idala Lagasse

Census information are often misleading especially with dates and how names were spelled. Idala Lagassé was there with his wife Albina and two children, little Rose and Parmilias who I would find out later was Parmelia who died on December 30th, 1903.

I thought I might be somehow related to Idala.

Back in 2007 I did not know who were my paternal ancestors so I was looking everywhere for every little bit of information I could find. Idala was one of the sons of Pierre Lagacé and Marcelline David.

Could Idala and I be related?

Then in 2010, Alyce, one of Idala’s granddaugthers, and I connected through the Internet. That story started here if you want to read it. This is how two 3rd cousins met virtually to remember lost ancestors.


Last week, Alyce shared these small pictures her sister had found. I got all excited. Idala was smack in the middle.


But I could not figure out who were the woman on the left and the young lady on the right. I thought first Albina Quintin was on the right. Albina died December 1st, 1914 leaving Idala with seven children to care for.

Looking at the children’s birthdates I was able to identify who were these people.

Little Rose was there with all her younger siblings!

I know some of my readers are Samuel’s descendants. I hope they will be excited to see young Samuel Lagasse.

I know I would be thrilled to see my grandfather with his family in the 1900s. To be thrilled one day is why I have been writing this blog since 2009.

Making other people happy is another reason.


This is post 1245.

Merry Christmas

  1. Merry Christmas to you Pierre, Nicole and all of your family…

    and all of your Lagacé and LaGassé followers. As I believe (correctly?) that all of those with any form of that name are somehow related… you have uncovered and connected a rather large family,

    Interestingly I got a DNA kit for ancestry and health genetics for Christmas…. I sent it in… everything I have read about them indicates that they are getting much better and test for hundreds of thousands of genes.

    We’ll see, maybe we do have some good Indian blood, Or some other mishmash that will come up from my paternal side. Given all of the work that you have done, I cannot imagine that I have anything other than get all the French Canadian. I have no idea really how they work or how far back they go and test.

    I can tell you that my children’s father, by the way did you know that he was deceased? I’m not sure if it shows that on the genealogy charts. He died December 24, 2000. At any rate, he was 6‘7“ blue-eyed blonde as Aryan as you could get…his parents were born in Germany and as far as they knew they could not have been more German.

    One of his brothers did this DNA test and discovered they were actually more Scottish and English than anything. That line went back very far since they had been even living in the same town in Meppen Germany since the 1300s.

    I’m excited to find out if I do have anything cool in my bloodline 🙂 besides you that is!!!

    More than likely as both of my grandparents were from Sicily I will find some interesting lines on that side. The history of the Sicilian women being assaulted by every invading marauder go back for centuries. I guess as they travel through the Mediterranean Sicily was a very easy stop by for supplies and anything else they wanted….

    Well it takes long time to get the results at least a month or two. If anything exciting comes up I’ll let you know!

    Again, I am sure your Christmas is going to be lovely and fun with all the babies.

    Have an adventurous exciting, and healthy 2018… Embrace the possibilities 🙂

    Be well, thank you once again for all of you are digging and investigation and time and effort that you put in to this family tree.

    I for one enjoy it to bats.
