Old photos…

Sometimes this is how I will get addicted again to old photos and start writing about them on Our Ancestors.

I still don’t know when I will stop doing it…

I had this message earlier in June.

Hello Pierre

Edgar Hamilton was my great uncle. I was pulling some info off Bonnie Ellis’s tree…. Harold Ellis’s mother was the sister of my great grandmother, Cora (Alvord) Hamilton. Anyway, I saw your name and that you have an interest in Eva (Dube) Hamilton.

May I ask what the connection is? Thank you,


This photo was shared in 2015 by Bonnie Ellis on Ancestry, and I never wrote about it until today.

Bonnie Ellis had added this caption.

Last year, Bonnie Ellis and I had exchanged several messages on Ancestry about this photo and then some more.

On this last photo, Marion Ellis had written…

Mother no 5, Mrs Florence Beals No.8, Marion No.9.

How is all this related to me?

Edgar Hamilton is the little boy, front row on the right, on that family picture taken on Christmas Day in 1907.

Edgar Hamilton married Eva Dubé, daughter of Eugène Dubé and my grandaunt Lillie Lagasse who I believe are on this old photo with two of their children.

Most probably Lillie Lagasse and her husband Eugene Dubé.jpg

Eva Dubé could be the little girl…

Here Eva Dubé is seen with her friend Marion Ellis.


Eva Dubé Hamilton is the one who had answered all of Jennette Rockwell Hamilton’s questions about the Hamiltons, first by sending her a postcard.

Please be patient. Sincerely and love to all

Aunt Eva.

This is part of what Eva sent in 1978…

The other pages have personal information on living people so they won’t be posted here.

Sharon had shared these pages last week and I have added all the information I did not have on the Hamiltons. Sometimes this is how I get to enter new information about your ancestors on my family tree which has now more than 53,000 names.

Why have I been keeping doing this since 2010?

Maybe because of this?

I don’t know why I will keep on doing this…
