It’s time for Saturday Night Genealogy Fun! The challenge that Randy has come up with this week is to figure out where my ancestors were in 1863 and write a post about it.
I thought it would be easier to do each side separate. Unfortunately, I do not have any photos of any of the residences from this era. I’m only going to include those who I have a specific death date for even if it is reasonable that they would be alive at the time.
My Dad’s side…
Augustin Lassalle (1789-1865), my 3rd great grandfather, lived in Ogeu les bains, France.
Jean Lassalle (1825-1898) and Marie Anne Loustanau (????-1862), my 2nd great grandparents, lived in Ogeu les bains, France. Their son, Jean Lassalle lived with them. My great grandfather, Pierre Lassalle, was born two months later.
Elisabeth (Tiret) Segalas (1794-1868), my 3rd great grandparents, lived in Ogeu les bains, France.
Elizabeth (Segalas) Lassalle (1857-1938), my great grandmother, lived in Ogeu les bains, France. While I know that Elizabeth lived there, I do not know who with. I don’t have a death date for her father and her mother died in 1860.
Jean Pierre dit Salanave (1824-1893) and Marie Anne Lacrouts (1835-1891), my 2nd great grandparents, live in Ogeu les bains, France. With them are their children Marie and Madeleine.
Jean Breil (1812-1874), my 3rd great grandfather, lived in Castet, France. It’s unclear if his wife was alive at the time.
Jean Breilh (1845-1821) and Mathilde Laplagne Maucor (1848-1910), my 2nd great grandparents, lived in Castet, France. They were not married until 1866, so most likely were living with their parents or other relatives.
That wraps up my Dad’s side of the tree.
My Mom’s side…
Jacintha Rosa (Ferreira) Pacheco (1795-1874), my 3rd great grandmother, lived in Fenais da Vera Cruz, Sao Miguel Island, Azores.
Jose Francisco de Mello (1797-1872) and Rosa Pimentel (1800-1864), my 3rd great grandparents, lived in Achada, Sao Miguel Island, Azores.
Jacintho Pacheco (1830-1876) and Anna Jacinta de Mello (1835-1902), my 2nd great grandparents, lived in Achada, Sao Miguel Island, Azores. I have yet to find their marriage record, but I assume that they were married around 1860.
Jozimas de Braga (1849-1922) and Maria da Conceicao de Mello (1845-ca 1898), my 2nd great grandparents, lived in Maia, Sao Miguel Island, Azores. Jozimas and Maria most likely lived with their parents since they didn’t marry until 1871. As I have not accessed the death records for this line yet, I didn’t include their parents.
John Joseph Jones (1816-1877) and Mary Jane Haywards (1811-1891), my 2nd great grandparents, were living in San Francisco, California. My great grandfather, Thomas Jones, was living with them.
Martin J. Kelly (ca. 1825-1899) and Catherine Dolan (ca. 1828-1872), my 2nd great grandparents, were living in San Francisco, CA. My great grandmother, Margaret (Kelly) Jones, was living with them, as were her siblings Catherine, Michael, John, Mary Ann, Winifred, and Mathew.
Those are all my ancestors known to be alive on 1 June 1863. Only the Kelly’s and Jones had made their way to America by that time. All my other relatives were still in their native country.
There should be a caveat next to the lines in Maia. I did not have access to those death records when I originally researched them at the local Family History Center, so I wasn’t able to fill in that information. The records are slowly becoming available online and I hope that I’ll be able to fill in the blanks sometime in the near future.
