This web page contains genealogical information on the LEGASSIE/CHASSE family from Northern Maine and contains information on the following surnames (not inclusive): LEGASSIE, LAGACE, MIGNE, MIGNIER-DIT-LAGACE, CHASSE, DEPRES, BELANGER. The first LAGACE ancestor to leave France for America, Andre MIGNIER DIT LAGACE, arrived in Quebec in the 1660's. Andre was the son of Michel Mignier & Catherine Masson of Ile de Re, France. Andre was a French soldier sent by King Louis XIV to protect the early Quebec settlers from the marauding bands of Iroquois Indians. Click on the link below to see more detailed information on the MIGNE-LAGACE family.My first CHASSE ancestor to come to America, Jean CHASSEY, arrived in Quebec in 1773. Jean was exiled from France by the King along with 600 others for committing a major crime of the time--illegally selling salt!! I hope you find this information interesting and useful.
