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…
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.
Rose Marie Louise Bernadette Lagasse
Eugene and Rose got married on November 4, 1912.
They had three children.
Rose Alice Moreau and Beatrice Cecile Moreau
and an adopted son…
Eugene Moreau became a sailor…
That was the only thing I knew about him.
Rose Alice Moreau and Beatrice Cecile Moreau are on the group picture.
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.
Have some pictures, not sure how to add them…?
I know how…
