Continuing up the family tree...May I introduce my Great Grandparents...
The parents of Jean Lassalle were Pierre Lassalle and Elizabeth Segalas. Pierre and Elizabeth were from Ogeu les bains, France. They lived their entire lives in Ogeu les bains.
The parents of Anna Madeleine Mazeres were Charles Mazeres dit Salanave and Brigitte Breilh. Charles was from Ogeu les bains, while Brigitte was from Castet, France. Charles came to San Francisco in the early 1890s. He was single and trying to make a name for himself. Brigitte came over in the mid 1890s.
They met up in San Francisco and married in 1897. The couple had 3 children, though only my Grandmother survived.
They made their living running French laundries first in San Francisco, then Modesto, and then finally in Oakland. When Charles died in 1926 at the age of 58, Brigitte ran the laundries herself. She became ill in her later years and her daughter, Anna, ended up taking care of her. She died in 1959 at the age of 87.
