I am descended from the Lea-Jones family, who lived in Bermuda for many years.
My mother has been transcribing my great-grandfather's diaries, and in one of them, he makes reference to "Uncle Edgar Degas the painter" coming to Bermuda for a visit. As Degas spent time in New Orleans this is quite feasible. What I don't know, however, is whether g-grandfather was using the term 'Uncle' literally or not.
Can anyone confirm that there was a Musson/Degas family connection with Bermuda, and whether there was any connection with the Lea-Jones family?
I look forward to hearing from anyone who can help solve this mystery!!
