"The original French name was de la Chamette, meaning little thatched roof house. The original Lashmet, when he was a boy 9 years old, was fishing on the banks of one of the Frency Rivers and was kidnapped by pirates and brought here to the US.Evidently, he had seen too much and they didn't dare leave him to inform authorities. When he was released, (abandoned) ... he in his fright, dropped the "de" from his French name.He grew up in Winston-Salem, NC and his name was Eliash Lasmet."
