"I have never looked into the faces of my great grandparents until now and it's quite a strange feeling to see them stare back at me with features like my own."  ~ Susan Veno in Seattle

seated is Elizabeth "Bessie" DeCoste DeCoste Perry, standing on right is Eliza DeCoste Veno


 
 
 Victorie Seraphine Boudreau DeCoste, wife of Isadore DeCoste
born November 25, 1841 in West Arichat, Nova Scotia
died September 11, 1914, Weymouth Massachusetts
Wife of Isadore DeCoste
Mother of Eliza DeCoste Veno
 
 

One of my favorite "finds!"  The gentleman is most likely William (Guilliame) Veno, father of Benjamin Veno.  The two little girls would most likely be grandchildren.


Gertrude Coste, born  about 1820

Marie Therese was her great, great grandmother. 

Gertrude was also the first cousin, once removed, to Isadore DeCoste
