Thanks Loretta, R. LeGras was mayor in June 1860 and my notes indicate he may have been the mayor who surrendered the City to the Federals May 9, 1863. He and his brother served in the CSA. Father and sons were at one time assessor, mayor, councilman, tax collector in Alexandria. I have several references to look up to document these and other notes. A brief note on the Legras can be found on this site: http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~thisisdk/ancestors.html#Michael%20Legras
Again thanks.
