Still searching, I went on the Ancestry’s forum…
My name is Tammy Middleton and one day while my children and I were searching for different things on the net, we found this location and hoped that maybe you could help my children solve their mystery of who they are.
Not much is known from their side of the Lagasse family as most are dead or they no longer live in our state of Virginia and their father left us with no form of contact or link to the Lagasse past.
All I know is that the Lagasses from their side came from Rhode Island. My childrens father’s name is Thomas Earl Lagasse, Jr. and his father was of course Thomas, Sr. and his father was Roy Lagasse.
Roy had another son named David Lagasse, one brother named Earl Lagasse who was living in the Florida area, and one sister named Ester.
If this links with your family or Emeril’s please contact us as my children would dearly love to know about their past and if course if they are related to Emeril.
We love his show and somehow it makes my children feel special as if their name could really mean something instead of just a name in the dark with no past and no future to past on to their children.
Thank you for your time.
I sent Tammy an e-mail but it bounced back…
I can understand why because she posted her message in 2001.
The chances are quite slim that Tammy is right now reading my blog so is Emeril Lagasse…
But who is this Emeril Lagasse anyway?
I have never heard of him…

Guess what? Tammy’s son just invited me as a friend on Facebook!
