Dear Cindy, I have been doing quite an extensive search into the Lagarde's and Lagarde dit St.Jean lines. I can trace my family back to France in the 1600's. I have found many roadblocks in searching the ones here in Canada. I would love to help you find your line and I am also curious as to how your Thomas is related to my line as I know he must be. Would you have any dates and locations (ie. birthplace,deathplace) for your Thomas? Anything would be of help. My great grandfather was born in Trois-Rivieres,Quebec and came from 2 very prominent families in Montreal. If I can find your connection I will gladly send you all the info I have collected.
