Alice Darcina Myers

Alice’s father  is Médard  Lemaire who changed  his name to Medard  Myers.


Sometimes  we only  have  headstones  to remember  our ancestors. Sometimes  we  are  lucky  to have an old picture  like this  one of Médard.


If you  want  to  know  more  about  Alice who is  in front  of  her father, write a comment. If you want  to  know  more about  this  family, do likewise.

Isn’t  Alice a cute little girl?

Take the time to go back in time with me this Sunday morning
