This family spoke French, when they lived in Pointe a la Hache. I found them in the 1930 Census as PARAGOL, which is why your family member pronounced it so. I found a recent obituary, and saw Sonny and Sonny, Jr. with another son Etienne. I had two sons with no listed family, Louis, or Etienne. What was Sonny's real name? This family is in my book "Le Pays," under the Ansardi's. My info has two sons without family, Augustin, and Nick, and marriages for the older two brothers, Louis married "A. TREADAWAY," and Etienne married Josephine LaCHUTE(spoke French her whole life). I had no children for either, but one is the Sonny family. The daughter Josephine married Felix LYTELL. Olivia(omitted in book) married her cousin Sebastian ANSARDI(they were murdered). or is Adrian Andrew (m.Lena VINET)"Sonny?" This family is relatively close, with LaCHUTE, LYTELL, or TREADAWAY as the key members besides the ANSARDI beginning. I update the "Pays" information in my home computer, hoping to one day make 2nd Edition, Volume 2, which will have the next generation or two in the PELLEGAL family. I might have those LYTELL's figured out all the way too, when that book comes out. I have been reviewing about 20 years of obituaries, and some info seems to elude you when it isn't that big a family.
