Who’s that girl…? – Season 1, Episode 2 – Everybody loves Harvey

If you are wondering if Elizabeth Fagan later married Harvey, and if you are wondering who was Miss Lagassy’s brother Harvey mentioned in the post card, well stop wondering…

This is Harvey on another photo shared by Dennis Lagasse IV last week.

Dennis had shared this other photo of Harvey several years ago… It was more a photocopy than an old photo.

The handwriting on that photocopy is Dennis Lagasse IV father’s handwriting. His father was just guessing that the man with the two children was Dennis Lagassey III’s father.

This is how I had decided to spruce it up a little.

Old photos talk to us…

Harvey was born in 1892. He was about three years-old on this photo with his older sister Marie born in 1889. The man could not be their father Dennis Lagassey III but instead their grandfather Stanislas who had changed his name to Dennis Lagasse when he emigrated to Connecticut in 1889 with his wife Henriette.

Henriette Alexandre, born on April 6, 1845, became known as Hattie Alexander. Henriette is probably this woman seen here on the left but I have no proof it’s really her.

Old photos talk to us…

Some facial features make me think it is Henriette, my grandfather’s mother.

Old photos talk to us…

But I digress…

Getting back to handsome Harvey, this is again Harvey Lagassey with his wife Mae Cox on another photo shared by Dennis Lagasse IV.

It was easy to identify this young couple since it was written Harvey’s wife on the back. This is Mae again seen here with her mother-in-law Amanda Ménard. I am not sure if the man is her father-in-law Dennis Lagassey III.

Mae is seen here again before probably when the other photo was taken. She is with Harvey and Amanda Ménard and Dennis Lagassey III.

Mae Cox is seen again in the middle…  I am wondering who are the others except Harvey of course.

Was it at Mae and Harvey’s wedding?

Mae is again seen here with Harvey, her father-in-law Dennis III and Harvey’s brother Philip Victor Lagasse…

This next photo was shared a few years ago by her great-granddaughter Marianne…

I wish I could share this post with Marianne…
