Hortance Lassus Michel was my Great Great Aunt. My Great grandmother was Julie Lassus Giordano. I am researching people who might be in the Edouard Lassus tomb in St. Patrick's Church cemetary. The slab was damaged in Katrina. My father thinks Hortance and/or possibly her son, Clarence might be in the tomb. Do you know the final resting place for Uncle Gabe, Taunteen (as my father called them), and her son, Clarence? The marker door/slab will be redone after I finalize this information. I hope to go to Port Sulphur soon to see if they are listed on another tomb.
Your great grandmother must be Lelia. When I ask my father about her he remembered her well and he spoke about her with a big smile.
