Intermission – Every picture tells a story…

This post has been in the works since last February when Julie contacted me.

Every picture tells a story on Our Ancestors.

That’s the reason I get so excited with old pictures especially when I see people whom I don’t know and Dennis shared lots of those yesterday.

This one was not in the lot…

1947 family reunion

I think my 23andMe cousin Alyce sent me that picture a few years back.

I had figured it was a family reunion. At first I had thought it had been taken when these people got together when her Alyce’s grandfather Idala Lagasse died in 1947, but people are smiling so I had figured it was not about a funeral.
The man seen sitting is Eugene Moreau. His wife Rose Marie Louise Bernadette Lagasse Moreau is beside him.

Eugene and Rose got married on November 4, 1912.

Two daughers…

Eugene Moreau became a sailor…

Unknown...Maybe Eugene Moreau taken June 1944 by Cherry & co. Inc. New Bedford

That was the only thing I knew about him.

Rose Alice Moreau and Beatrice Cecile Moreau are on the group picture.

1947 family reunion

Rose Alice is on the left with her husband Teddy Girard. Next to her is her brother Eugene Moreau and his wife Verness Estelle Byrd. Next to Verness is probably Beatrice Cecile’s husband, Louis, but we don’t know his surname.

Every picture tells a story even though it may take years to find out who is on it. Years is what it took for someone related to Theodore (Teddy) Girard to find Our Ancestors.

Hi, I have enjoyed watching your Lagasse search. My great-grandparents are, Leocadie Messier & Edouard Roussell or Rousselle. Their daughter Albina Roussell married Louis Lagasse,
Louis Lagasse 1876–1953
Albina Roussel 1879–1963
Marriage: 1 Jun 1897
New Bedford, Bristol, Massachusetts.
Louis’ parents are: Joseph Lagace 1853–Deceased and Salomee Pollender 1849–1926
Marriage: 4 Oct 1870
Bedford, Stanbridge Twp., Mississquoi City, Quebec
I do have some pictures, not sure how to add them.

Have some pictures, not sure how to add them…?
I know how…

Mae Cox and her son?

I knew I had seen that face before.

mother and son

And the house where Dennis Lagassey III was standing with a pipe in his hand…

Dennis Lagasse III

Mae Cox is seen again here with his husband Harvey Lagasse Senior on the left, her father-in-law Dennis III, and her brother-in-law Victor Lagasse with a cigarette.

Mae is also here with Harvey and her husband’s parents Amanda and Dennis.

She is seen here also in the middle behind her husband. I can’t identify who are the others in the group.

She is seen here once again. Same dress, same necklace, and same house.

Mae Cox? - Amanda Ménard - ?

So who could be the little boy with her?

How about her son Harvey Lagasse Junior born December 12, 1923?
