Intermission – Pamela Dubé

Sharing is important when searching for our ancestors. Annick has shared so much information and now she is sharing all these old photos this morning for our readers.

Seventeen, all properly identified…

Well almost all…

Philomène Louis Pelletier

Not sure about the above photo.

This one I am sure is Pamela Dubé…

Pamela Dubé

In 2012 she was only a plaque in St. Thomas cemetery.

Pamela Dubé 1863-1946

This old photo got me searching for more…

famille Edgar Pinette

Edgar was married three times:

1885 Philomène Dubé

1899 Pacifique Hébert

1905 Odila Godreau (Gaudreau)

This is his first marriage with Philomène Dubé, Pamela’s sister.

And these are their children.

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!

Odna and Ida


I know Odna and Ida are on these photos sent as negatives yesterday. Not positive if the child is Harvey Lagasse Junior.

I guess the infant here with Odna is her child, either Helena Ritchie born in 1918 or Francis Richie born in 1919.
Odna Lagasse with child
My guess is it’s Helena since Odna looks younger on this photo with Helena taken on November 16, 1921.

Odna Lagasse at the wedding
Ida is also on that group picture on the right with her daughter holding on her skirt. In the back is Dennis II holding a cigar. The woman on the left might be his daughter Marguerite widow of Joseph Dubé. Next to Marguerite Lagasse might be Eugene Dubé and his wife Lillie Lagasse.
We all know who the bride is of course…

Bertha Lagasse

Bertha Lagasse

Bertha Lagasse married William Edward Austin on November 16, 1921.

Bertha and William
Bertha appears on many old pictures from Lionel Lagasse’s collection.
This one is my favorite photo.


Little by little I am able to identify people I could not identified in 2011. The more photos Dennis shares, the more I can validate who is who.
I think I know who were in the car with Bertha around 1917 in Connecticut.
Move Over

Intermission – Every picture tells a story…

This post has been in the works since last February when Julie contacted me.

Every picture tells a story on Our Ancestors.

That’s the reason I get so excited with old pictures especially when I see people whom I don’t know and Dennis shared lots of those yesterday.

This one was not in the lot…

1947 family reunion

I think my 23andMe cousin Alyce sent me that picture a few years back.

I had figured it was a family reunion. At first I had thought it had been taken when these people got together when her Alyce’s grandfather Idala Lagasse died in 1947, but people are smiling so I had figured it was not about a funeral.
The man seen sitting is Eugene Moreau. His wife Rose Marie Louise Bernadette Lagasse Moreau is beside him.

Rose Lagasse

Rose Marie Louise Bernadette Lagasse

Eugene and Rose got married on November 4, 1912.

Eugène Moreau et Rose Lagacé

They had three children.
Two daughers…

two little girls

Rose Alice Moreau and Beatrice Cecile Moreau

and an adopted son…

Eugene Moreau became a sailor…

Unknown...Maybe Eugene Moreau taken June 1944 by Cherry & co. Inc. New Bedford

That was the only thing I knew about him.

Rose Alice Moreau and Beatrice Cecile Moreau are on the group picture.

1947 family reunion

Rose Alice is on the left with her husband Teddy Girard. Next to her is her brother Eugene Moreau and his wife Verness Estelle Byrd. Next to Verness is probably Beatrice Cecile’s husband, Louis, but we don’t know his surname.

Every picture tells a story even though it may take years to find out who is on it. Years is what it took for someone related to Theodore (Teddy) Girard to find Our Ancestors.

Hi, I have enjoyed watching your Lagasse search. My great-grandparents are, Leocadie Messier & Edouard Roussell or Rousselle. Their daughter Albina Roussell married Louis Lagasse,
Louis Lagasse 1876–1953
Albina Roussel 1879–1963
Marriage: 1 Jun 1897
New Bedford, Bristol, Massachusetts.
Louis’ parents are: Joseph Lagace 1853–Deceased and Salomee Pollender 1849–1926
Marriage: 4 Oct 1870
Bedford, Stanbridge Twp., Mississquoi City, Quebec
I do have some pictures, not sure how to add them.

Have some pictures, not sure how to add them…?
I know how…

Mae Cox and her son?

I knew I had seen that face before.

mother and son

And the house where Dennis Lagassey III was standing with a pipe in his hand…

Dennis Lagasse III

Mae Cox is seen again here with his husband Harvey Lagasse Senior on the left, her father-in-law Dennis III, and her brother-in-law Victor Lagasse with a cigarette.

Harvey-Mae-Stanislas-Victor

Mae is also here with Harvey and her husband’s parents Amanda and Dennis.

Amanda Ménard - Dennis Lagassey III - Mae Cox and husband Harvey Lagasse

She is seen here also in the middle behind her husband. I can’t identify who are the others in the group.

center Harvey Lagasse with wife Mae Cox

She is seen here once again. Same dress, same necklace, and same house.

Mae Cox? - Amanda Ménard - ?

So who could be the little boy with her?

mother and son

How about her son Harvey Lagasse Junior born December 12, 1923?

Post 1298 – Please remember them…

I guess that’s why I have been writing so much about your ancestors on Our Ancestors.
Please remember them…
This is Georges Dubé and his wife Angèle Miville-Deschênes. I have no reason to doubt Julie that they are not Dennis Lagasse IV’s great-great grandparents and many others’ ancestors.
Very few people are as lucky as Dennis since 2011.
Having a cousin addicted with old pictures is just as lucky.

This is post 1298…
Feel free to share.
