East Bristol, Spring 1916
This is the original picture shared by someone in 2009. At that time, I knew nothing about these people except for Pépère whom I knew was my granduncle Dennis Lagasse III, my grandfather’s brother.
See what was missing.
East Bristol, Spring 1916
I modified the original picture on April 25th, 2015.
This next old family picture was shared in 2011 by a complete stranger, a fourth cousin, Dennis Lagasse IV.
Germaine Lagasse is the first child of Alice Myers and Victor Philippe Lagasse.
She’s David Victor Lagasse’s grandaunt.
My third cousin I never knew about
WATERBURY — Mr. Robert J. Miller Sr., age 62, of Perkins Avenue, passed away Sunday,
Oct. 26, 2008, at Waterbury Hospital. He was the former husband of Carol (Martone) Miller.
Mr. Miller was born on Sept. 18, 1946, in Waterbury, a son of the late Edsen R. and Antoinette (DiPietro) Miller Sr. A graduate of Croft High School, he owned and operated Robert Miller Carpeting for many years and also worked at Triangle Pacific Cabinets. He was an avid car and motorcycle enthusiast and enjoyed his 1961 Harley Sportster.
Robert is survived by his son, Robert J. Miller Jr. of Wolcott; his daughter, Danielle G. Miller and her husband, Stephen Polsinelli, of Carlsbad, Calif.; his brother, Edsen R. Miller Jr. and his wife, Patti, of South Kingston, R.I.; four grandchildren, Kevin R. Miller, Carolyn, Ava G. and Stephen M. Polsinelli; his aunt, Dorothy Spina of Waterbury; his longtime friend and companion, Linda Shea; as well as several nieces, nephews and cousins.
Who remembers his father Edsen Miller?
That was the only picture I could find on the Internet on Joseph M. Lagassee.
The M stands for Miller. I had no idea where he got that middle name. I still don’t.
I could not find anything more about his only son Robert Lagasse. Until Susan broke the news.
Joseph’s middle name was used on this…
Robert was Edwina Newcity’s only child. I thought back in 2012 he never married.
I did remember him on this post in 2012. I never met him of course, Robert being born around 1880.
That was the problem.
See you around.
It’s Miller time!
Hello Pierre, I now live in the American Southwest, but my family is from Bristol, CT. My paternal grandfather was Victor Phillippe (sp?) Lagasse of Prospect St., married to Alice Myer from Mass. I believe Victor was born in the province of Quebec, and moved to Bristol in the early 1900s. He had at least 7 children, one of whom was my dad, Paul Roger Lagasse. Any information you have is most appreciated.
Thank you !
Or will I scare him away?
