Intermission – Salomé Mignier dit Lagacé

Again no reason to doubt who was this couple. Julie had shared this on a Facebook group page as well as their son’s picture.

Salomé Mignier dit Lagacé was one of the first Lagacés I found in my quest for my ancestors back in 2007 when I was desperately looking for any Pierre Lagacé that had lived in the 1800s.

There was this Pierre Lagacé who had married Marcelline David. Little did I know then that Pierre was my great-great-grandfather’s brother and was Alyce’s great-great-grandfather.

So it’s more than fitting to remember Salomé whom I found on my journey into the past and write a little about her and her descendants.

To be continued…unless Dennis sends me more negatives as he commented on Donna’s comment.

I love, love, love when you share these pictures of my grandmother Odna and her siblings. They bring back so many memories from my youth. I have to wonder if I ever met Dennis IV. I remember attending many Lagasse picnics at Lake Compounce in Bristol CT. Perhaps we met there as children.

Hi Donna, We would go to Compounce when I was young but I don’t remember picnics. I do remember visiting Odna more than once though. We may have met there? After Levi and then Marie-Louise passed, these pictures and negatives were put away and not seen for over 40 years. They moved around CT and around FL and back to CT with my mom and dad, packed in a box. I thought we went through all there was, but my mom found this box they haven’t looked in since they moved to FL over 20 years ago. Inside were some things put away by my grandmother along with a cigar box. I was organizing things and put the cigar box aside to wait for my dad to open. While I was moving the heavy box a little I happened to peek and almost fell over when I saw all these negatives! My dad took a look and we let Pierre know right away and came up with a way to save them. Pierre is doing a great job of turning these into positives and sharing them! There are many many more, I can’t wait to see what we find. I’m so happy you enjoy the pictures Donna. I like seeing my grandmother too, smiling and happy. It looks like they were all fun loving, hard working happy people then. I’m not sure but I think Levi may have taken a lot of these pictures and might find that out also. More to come, right Pierre?

Lionel and Marie-Louise

Right Dennis!
