There was a Samuel Leasure/Leazure/Lazier etc. who was from Bedford County. He is the one mentioned in Thelma Marshall's book as being born ca 1760.
I have followed Samuel through several censuses and believe he was born more like 1765-1770. His age varies from one census to the next. 1765 is a pretty good median birth year. What year was the Samuel born that you have found in Somerset County? I would love to find where Samuel from Bedford County went after 1830. He was in Napier Twonship, Bedford Co in 1830, then disappears.
I have found what seem to be 9 different children for Samuel from all these censuses. There were 2 girls living with him in 1800. There is another girl that was listed as being born between 1816 and 1820. In between there were several boys born. Of course, the early records don't give names.
What years did you find Samuel listed in the Somerset County census? Thanks, Sharon
