- Interesting story behind this one. Aarently, my family was rich at one time. Thomas Alonzo LaSaine Sr, aarently was a poor Carpenter. He learned how to repair homes just to live. Sometimes he'd find a dilapidated, abandoned home and repair it. Eventually, people would ask him how much to sell his creations. He became a millionaire fixing and selling property. When Mary Alice LaSaine died. He remarried an Unknown Lasaine who later took his inheritance when he died. Courts battles went on for years between the LaSaine children and her, but to no avail. All the children knew the intent of his will, but the courts saw it differently. As far as we know, the were already very old at the time and produced no children. - As recalled via memory from what Mary F. LaSaine Finley told Reginald V. Finley, Sr.
