Birth: Mar. 29, 1912
Robeson County
North Carolina, USA
Death: Jul. 1, 1913
Robeson County
North Carolina, USA

Firstborn child of Lillie Mae McLeod and William Gordon Britt, Sr. Lillie was pregnant with her second child when Leslie died.

Family lore says the child choked on a bone while being fed by his father.

The death notice at right was published in The Robesonian, Monday, July 7, 1913, page 5. (Robeson County, North Carolina).

Note: Neither a birth record nor a death certificate have been found for Leslie. Both the Britt and McLeod families were residents of Robeson County. Lillie and Gordon married in May 1911. Birth records of their older children show they were born in Buie, Burnt Swamp Township, which is also the location of Lillie's father's farm. A January 1912 newspaper article mentions Gordon and says he was a resident of Buie. Leslie's date of birth on March 29, 1912, is taken from a close family member's tree on, who is a descendant of his brother W. G. Britt, Jr.


The 1913 death notice states burial was at Oak Grove Cemetery. It was searched in April 2014 but a marker was not found. Thank you, Julie Whiteside Miller.

In May 2015, a small, but difficult to read, tombstone was photographed at Parkton Cemetery among the graves of William and Lillie Britt (Leslie's parents) and Ida Britt (his sister). Name LESLIE McLEOD is visible. Many thanks to photo volunteer NEVER EVER FORGET.
