|Birth: ||Oct. 15, 1747|
Samuel LeSueur, Sr., died 1832/34.
All indications it appears Samuel LeSueur, Sr., served in the Revoutionary War (looking for his service record).
Samuel LeSueur, Sr. was given his name for his paternal uncle, Samuel LeSueur, s/o David LeSueur and Catherine (Fell) LeSueur, Sr.
Samuel LeSueur, Sr., resided in Buckingham Co., VA where in 1782 he was taxes for 287 acres.
On 10 September 1801, "Samuel Laseur and Martha his wife of the County of Buckingham sold a tract "left to her by her father James Bryant dec'd." to Silas Bryant."
Source: Powhatan County, Virginia, Deed Book: 3, pg.68
Samuel LeSueur, Sr. was of "French Huguenot" descent. He was born in Manakin Town, VA and was living in Monroe County by 1832 after moving from Elbert County, Georgia.
Son of David and Elizabeth (Chastain) LeSueur, Jr.
Husband of Martha (Bryant) LeSueur ~ married ca. 1774, Buckingham Co., VA
Samuel and Martha (Bryant) LeSueur, Sr. had 9 children and they were:
1. Edna LeSueur (m. Robert Bryan Christian)
2. Samuel LeSueur, Jr. (m. Mary Buer Andrew)
3. James LeSueur, Sr. (m. Nancy Stinson)
4. Jordan B. LeSueur (m. Susannah Stinson)
5. John C. LeSueur
6. Drury Mims LeSueur, I (m. Mahala B. Beckom)
7. Mead LeSueur (m. Henrietta E. Smith)
8. Mary LeSueur (m. John E. Bailey)
9. Martha "Patsy" LeSueur (m. Thomas Stephens, Jr.)
It is "questionable" if Samuel LeSueur, Sr. had a "middle name" of Alexander (no proof/documentation) and it is said, he served in the Revolutionary War. He no doubt received a "grant" for his service and this is why he came to Georgia and settled in Elbert (orig. Wilkes Co.) County and after 1830 he had settled in Monroe County.
1830 Census Monroe County, Samuel (Alexander?) LeSueur, Sr. was living with his son Samuel LeSueur, Jr.
