A Luke LeCroy lived in Chesterfield, South Carolina before moving to Georgia and may haved been a tobacco farmer. He may have been a son of Lucas.Luke had several children, one of which was my great great grandfather, Jesse LeCroy.Jesse had several children, including my great grandfather, Alfred Adam LeCroy and my great, great uncle, Jesse (Jr.) LeCroy.Jesse Jr. settled in Goodwater, (Coosa County) AL in the mid-1800s and had many children, including ten sons, many of whom are the ancestors of present day residents of Alabama.
Alfred Adam also settled a few years in Alabama, in Autauga County, then in about 1855 moved on to Mississippi Township in Columbia County, Arkansas.It appears there was a large caravan of immigrants in this movement, including another great grandfather of mine, John Russell and his wife, Nancy Madders Russell.Alfred Adam had married their daughter, Nancy Russell, in Baldwin County Georgia in the early 1800s.Alfred Adam and Nancy had five sons, including my grandfather, George Benjamin LeCroy.The others were William M.,John H., Alfred Jr., and Marian J.
A sixth child, of whom we only know the initials, A.V.A, died at age 9 months, just before Alfred Adam left to serve with the light artillery of the Madison Tips of Capt. George Moody in Monroe, LA. during the Civil War.This unit fought with distinction at Chancellorsville and Gettysburg where Alfred Adam was seriously wounded and later captured by Union forces at Cashtown, PA.
