Dr Rene LaForce, I
Learn about removing the ads from this memorial...
Birth: 1660, France
Death: Sep., 1728
Goochland County
Virginia, USA

Dr. Rene was born about 1660 in Guyenne France. He was born in a castle called Castlenau which was a de Caumont property so we believe he was a de Caumont de la Force. However, we have been unable to figure out when he was born, who his parents were, where he was educated to become a doctor, when he left, where he stopped along the way or when/where he landed in America.

It's rumored he may have had other wives & children in other countries. If you have any documentation please bring them forward to the La Force & Family Community (link on my profile).

We only know he ended up in Manakin Town Virginia & once there married a woman named Sarah. We assume they were married at Manakin Town but have been unable to find record of it & also don't know who her parents were. Rene was named one of the first Justices of the Peace of Goochland County by Gov. William Gooch on 4/23/1728. There was at least one land grant & they both left wills. His is short a child because he died before the child was born. Hers includes the child. Otherwise his name was on several papers showing he not only existed but he was an important man within the community.
