David Robb Gilchrist and Charlotte Maria Campbell’s son

This is where I am right now on Our Ancestors.

Alexander James Bryson Gilchrist married Sheila Doreen Lightfoot. They had a daughter born in 1961 in Hennepin, Minnesota. I don’t have much more information except that Alexander James Bryson Gilchrist died on August 26, 1996 in Minnesota.

Don’t get me wrong – I’m not a ghost…

I have never met one.

The only time I was confronted was when my mother died.

I did not see her but my brother-in-law did the night she died. He did not make this story up, that I am sure of…

I have been writing this blog since 2009. I have written more than 1000 posts.

Tony told me I was a prolific writer. I write to share what I have found about ancestors no longer with us like my great-grandfather Stanislas.

I would have like to tell you more about Adolphe Pierre and Elphège Lagacé, but I think I scared away their descendants.

I believe Elphège is on that picture.

See you in September…

I wonder where all this will lead us to…?

Je me demande bien où tout ceci va nous mener…?

You tell me because I haven’t the faintest clue…

The old woman in black with the glasses?

The woman in black next to Valeda Forand behind the two little boys?

Valéry Forand Blanche and Frobe

Not the two little boys because I have talked about them on this blog as well as their father Frobe Lagasse on the extreme right in the first rwo.

Everything is on the blog.

I wonder where all this will lead us to…?

Let’s roll!

That’s the problem…

Getting all excited with a picture of someone you knew all about but had no one else to share all this excitement with.

Let’s roll!

Now if I can only calm down just a little until next week…

It will be difficile you know…

Descendants of Pierre Lagassé and Marcelline David

Very few people know they are descendants of Pierre Lagassé and Marcelline David.

I am not one of them…

Strange isn’t to have searched for these people’s descendants since 2009?

Blanche and Edward

Blanche Lagasse is holding her son Edward Louis Robitaille born in 1921. Her mother Valéda Forand is behind her. The other women is Philomène Lussier,  Valéda’s mother.

Not much interesting unless you know who these people are on a picture dated around 1922…

Who was Edward Louis Robitaille?

Blanche is the little girl on the left. Blanche, born March 15, 1902, left this world on January 9, 2002.

But did she really leave us?

The Best Man

I have searched hard to know who the best man was on that wedding picture…

Myra Alexandre's and William Archambault's wedding picture

Then I got some help from Joe I think, or was it from Frank? The information was on a newspaper clipping dated 1902.

This is the wedding picture of Myra Alexander and William Archambeault.

In 2009 I knew nothing about these people. Little by little my search led me to distant cousin Joe and distant cousin Frank.

The best man was Frank Lagasse. His name changed to Francis Elie Lagase.

A few hours ago his granddaughter found my blog, but she does not know how much I know about her mother’s ancestors, and how I love to share what I know.

I wished I had their wedding picture instead of a headstone.
