Dear Denise, My name is Lawrence Lancto (Lanctot) but I am not the guy you are looking for but there are a few small cooincidences. My father, Eugene L Lancto was born in Chicopee Falls, Mass,(in late 1800s), which is a suburb(kind of) of Springfield. His brother, Albert, died sometime in mid 1940s. My father, grandparents all moved to Maine from Springfield area sometime before WW #1, HIs brother, Philip, returned to Springfield and lived all of his life there.
Let me know if I can provide any other information
