Dear Richard, my wife is June Algeo...her father was Preston Lefevre Algeo...as was her grandfather.I have been researching the Algeo/Lefevre history for some time and had engaged a researcher in Lancaster County some years ago. It seems that Thomas Algeo came thru the port of Newcastle, Delaware in about 1793. He supposedly said "I am from the Kingdom of Ireland."We know both he and Lydia are buried in old St. Peter's Episcopal Church...I believe it is at 3rd and Pine St.Thomas died SEP1837.A John Algeo married Hester Oliver at this same church on 23MAY1811.The church has no further records of this couple but I strongly believe John and Hester may be direct line ancestors of my wife, June. Hester Oliver is descended from a French family by the name of Gallaudet. I believe the were Huguenots. I have more on that family if you need it.
There is a connection between Lydia Lefevre Algeo and a William Moffit who was born in Ireland ca 1767 d 6MAR1806 and is buried in the same plot as Lydia Lefevre. Other Algeos in this cemetery are Rebecca Ann d21JUN1820 age 70, Jane Algeo d 10FEB1843 J(daughter of Rebecca.) Rebecca Algeo d 2MAR1856 age 73.My wife's father always said they were descended from French Huguenots. Would be glad to exchange whatever information I have and also like to learn what you have researched and if you are connected to this Algeo family.Thank you, Leo A. Dolan
