I show that JOSEPH B. LANDRETH b. 2 MAR 1854 in Mason Co IL d. Hill Co TX 26 NOV 1926 m. 1872 MAY B. BURR b. JAN 1854 in IL.
CHILDREN of JOSEPH B.LANDRETH & MAY B.BURR All children b. in Hill Co TX Ada, Ida, Ola, Dora, Thomas, Roy, Belma, Nannie, Katie, Joseph Jefferson, Earl and Pearl
Joseph's parents were Thomas Landreth and Sarah Bush. I find no evidence that any came to America directly from France...Maybe from the Middle Ages but several generations back the Landreths could have come from Alsace Lorraine but via other countries.
