Stanislas Lagasse on Find A Grave
I have added more information in bold characters in the memorial I had created a few years ago. Someone added a contribution yesterday.
This is the only information I had entered…
Stanislas (Dennis) is most probably buried in St. Thomas Cemetery.
More information Stanislaw Lagasse, aged 84, died Sunday at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Lavina Dube of Dewey avenue, East Bristol, from infirmities incident to advanced years.

I don’t know if that contributor is related yet or why this interest with my great-grandfather seen in the middle with his son Dennis III and probably one of his sons-in-law.

I have written a lot about my paternal great-grandfather whom I had no information in 2007. Since 2010 many relatives in the United States started sharing what little they knew. Together this blog became a memorial for future generations with many photos of a family man. picture from Dennis 2 Dennis is seen above on a photo taken in 1895.  Two of his grandchildren were with him: Marie Rose Elmira and Harvey Senior. This is Harvey Senior later in life. Harvey William Lagasse This is what I had written about him in 2012. Harvey William Lagasse was known as Big Harvey. I did not know that. But I am sure he had  big heart. I made this little montage for my two new found second cousins twice removed. Big Harvey is the little boy with his grandfather Stanislas Lagacé aka Dennis Lagasse II. Stanislas Lagacé is my great-grandfather who is fast becoming a well-known celebrity on the Internet. I am sure Stanislas had also a big heart. He was born in 1842 in the province of Quebec. Big Harvey was born in 1892 in Connecticut. So the picture on the left was probably taken around 1896, more than 116 years ago. Last year Big Harvey was just a name in my family tree. Now with the help of my two new found second cousins twice removed Big Harvey is also fast becoming a well-known celebrity on the Internet just like his grandfather.

  1. Hey there! I’m the one who updated with the info. I am not related (that I know of), but have been researching French Canadian families for years, after finding MASSIVE amounts of disinformation on my on Dubreuil lineage, sometimes I dig into some families whose last names I see often – Legasse was one of them! The New Britain Herald is one of the least digitized newspapers, so it has years 1914-1930 on Chronicling America. My french Canadian roots: Lemieux Briere, Jalbert, Dufresne, Dubreuil, Gilbert/Guilbeault, Forest…. Several others.

    Many years ago, you had posted a photo of my relatives – once that I have since lost, of Adeline (Forest) Jalbert, Hattie Jalbert, Marcelline Jalbert, and Delima Jalbert. If you have it somewhere I would massively appreciate it!
