Leonard Pigmon says on his Rev. war pension application that he was born 1748 in North Carolina-British Colonies. We do not know what his Father's name or place of birth was but it could have been Pimond or St.Priest-de-Gimel or Chanac-les-Mines, Correze.

The Pigmon surnames in Correze are: Circe Pigmon, Michel Pigmon, and Leonarde Pigmon.

If you could find a Pigmon from there or from the Gimel-les-Cascades area who was born around 1718-1728 that might be Leonard's Father. Especially if he has not date of death in France.
