    Her maternal grandparents are Jose Fagot and Ghislaine Deghouys. I wanted to see if Jose may have been of Spanish descent. His parents were Marcel Joseph Fagot and Emilie Irene Boucq. So I think they too were Walloon.

    Her parents are Daniel and Brigitte Dequenne. Her mother’s maiden name is Brigitte Noella Ghislaine Fagot. Here is a family tree that details her grandparents, great-grandparents, etc. as you click on their names:


    It is in French, though, since I assume Emilie’s family is Walloon.
