Have a Nice Day Harold…

Type Clair Perrin Roys on Google…

This is what you will get. 

At least on google.ca…

This is how I work… putting people names on the Internet so people related to them will contact me.

No money involved, no donation.

Just pure free pleasure and joy of finding your roots and if you are lucky pictures of your ancestors…

Maybe Harold has some on this picture.

Dennis II and Dennis III So many unidentified people…

This is the post Harold found. 

Now I understand why he wrote this…

No sir I was still trying to navigate what you sent me.  Thank you  by the way.

I Had To

I just had to write an e-mail to Harold.

Hi Harold,

Have you read my blog lately?


Just in case I did not scare him away with all the information I sent him.

Harold wrote back.

No sir I was still trying to navigate what you sent me  thank you  by the way

This is what I just wrote Harold to tell him about my blog.

Hi Harold,

About my blog…

I never write about people who are living so to keep personal information out.

Feel free to share whatever information you have.
Even though my blog has some humor, it does not mean I don’t take genealogy seriously. My blog is a way to contact people related somehow to people I found out were relatives, even distant ones.

The story of Marie Lagasse is about someone we have pictures of.
I am happy to share those with you because someone shared them with me.

That’s what this blog is all about.

Have a nice day

Perrin Roys 23 December 1866

Perrin Roys 1866

Perrin Roys was born on December 23, 1866 in Sheffield, Massachusetts. His father John M. Roys was a teacher.

I also found out he was in the Civil War.

Perrin’s mother was Rhoda Huggins. I went looking for Rhoda’s parents also. Along the way I found more about Rhoda… when she was born and when she died.

I also found her father’s grave on Find A Grave…

Abraham Huggins

Rhoda’s mother Rhoda Johnson is also buried there. Sometimes you miss a lot when you don’t write back.

I Hope I Did not Scare You

Not only Harold Roys Junior has all his Lagasse lineage, but I found his Royce ancestors while waiting for him to contact me again.

I am still waiting.

Clair Perrin Sr.’s father was Perrin Roys or Royce. Perrin was John M. Royce’s and Rhoda Huggins’ son. I won’t be writing more about Harold’s ancestors, but everything is on my Ancestry site waiting for someone else to contact me.

About John M. Roys…

John M. Roys

Clair P. Roys Jr.

Joe had sent me this last year, but I did not remember he had sent it.

Clair P. Roys Jr. of Nestico Court, Bristol, died Friday at Care Manor in Farmington. He was 74. Mr. Roys was born in Bristol, son of the late Clair P. Roys Sr. and Mary Lagasse Roys.

A lifelong Bristol resident, he was a U.S. Army veteran of World War II and was employed at Peck Spring for 21 years before retiring in 1986. He was a member of the McNamee Chapter 5 of the Disabled American Veterans and St. Ann Church in Bristol. He leaves his wife, Constance Lucier Roys; two sons, Richard Roys and Robert Roys, both of Bristol; a daughter, Judith Tarrant of Danbury; three sisters, Ann Gamache of Bristol, Marie Ballash of Plainville and Bertrude Kinney of Bangor, Maine; three grandchildren; three great-grandchildren; and several nieces and nephews.

A memorial service will be held Wednesday at 11 a.m. at Funk Funeral Home, 35 Bellevue Ave., Bristol. Burial with military honors will be in St. Joseph Cemetery, Bristol. Friends may call Wednesday from 10 to 11 a.m. at the funeral home. Memorial donations may be made to the St. Ann Church Renovation Fund, 215 West St., Bristol, CT 06010.

Senior moments I guess…

Clair P. Roys Jr. is Harold Roys Sr.’s brother.

I am sure Harold Jr. must have met him and he probably has pictures to share or has pictures of people he can’t identify.

Maybe I can…

Clair Perrin Roys Sr.

As a reply to a comment of one of my readers…

What a great gift…to be able to connect with the past!

I wrote this…

The problem with my blog is that there are so many gifts to open up.
Now Harold has so many pictures to look at and so many links to the past that it must be staggering at first.

This is what I have on Clair Perrin Roys Sr., Harold’s grandfather: 1942 Registration Card.

I have never had any contact with Clair Perrin Roys Sr.’s descendants before.

So I have not looked for more information on him since no one had contacted me before.

Until Harold wrote a comment.

I was just waiting for someone to write a comment and tell me more about Marie, the little girl with her grandfather Dennis Lagasse II seen here around 1895 with his two grandchidren Harvey Lagasse and Rose Elmira Lagasse (Marie).

Of course I have also this on Clair Perrin Roys Sr. The backside of the registration card.

White, 5′ 3″, 120, blue eyes, blonde hair, ruddy complexion.

Clair worked at Lake Compounce. We all know where Lake Compounce is don’t we?

I wonder who is “M. G.”?

I wonder if this picture sent in 2012 by Dennis Lagasse IV could be related to Clair Perrin Roys?

574757_3899112030843_924387346_nIt could since Dennis had this picture of Marie Lagasse “driving” a car…

The Jackpot

Harold hit the jackpot with this comment sent Saturday night…

Hello my name is Harold Roys Jr. My father Harold Sr died dec 25 1983… I know his mother’s name was Marie Lagasse, but know very little about his family.

This is Rose Elmira Lagasse or “Marie” as a little girl.

She’s Harold Jr’s grandmother.

Harold knows very little.

I know a whole lot…

This is Marie again on the porch. She’s on the left. Her father Dennis Lagasse III is beside her. Her mother Amanda Ménard is on the right.

All of Marie’s siblings are in front.

I know all about them.
