Some Lagasses of Maine/Massachusetts/New Hampshire | Evelyn in Montreal

Earlier this week I was contacted by Peter Lagasse of the Maine Mignier(Meunier)/Lagaces(Lagasse). Peter had already completed his line from Andre Mignier dit Lagace down to himself but wanted to doublecheck the data he’d collected against what I had in my database. The good news is that (with one exception see L.St-Hilaire) I was able to confirm Peter’s Quebec marriage dates with original documents or reputable indexes. This didn’t surprise me because Peter’s Reference List includes a wide-range of high quality sources that show him to be a methodical family history researcher.

Peter and I both descend from Andre Mignier’s great-grandson Basile Mignier dit Lagace but Peter descends through his first wife Madeleine Leclerc/Francoeur while I descend through Basile’s second wife  Catherine Dube.  Many of Basile’s descendants stayed in Quebec, but my branch migrated to Bathurst, New Brunswick, Canada while Peter’s branch put down roots in New Hampshire, U.S.A.

I’ve already published the Lagace dit Mignier first three generations + and some of my Basil Mignier/Dube branch who migrated to Bathurst, New Brunswick, (see Index: Mignier Lagaces | France – QC – NB), so today I’m taking the opportunity to post the Basil Mignier/Leclerc descendants through their son Basile and daughter-in-law Genevieve Viel. I am including only those marriages that are in my official database which specializes in Lagace/Mignier genealogy in Quebec and New Brunswick up to 1911.

FIRST GENERATION

1. Basile Lagace/Mignier (son of Basile Mignier/Lagace and Madeleine Leclerc Francoeur) married Genevieve Viel in 1798 in St-Andre, Kamouraska (Bas-St-Laurent), Quebec, Canada.  Genevieve’s parents were Michel Viel and Genevieve Dumont. A child from this marriage was: +2 M i. Joseph Paul Lagace/Mignier.

SECOND GENERATION

    I have been trying to get in touch with Evelyn but apparently your former email address no longer works. I have some updates from previous posts that you may be interested in.
