My Grgr Grandfather, David P. Leath was in Petersburg Hastings Court, as an heir to sell property of his father Arthur Leath. David's mother was Lucretia Aldridge, daughter of Peter Aldridge. Arthur's two brothers, Stephen and Peter, were killed in The Rev War. Their parents were Arthur and Sarah Leath. Arthur's parents were Peter and Elizabeth Leath. Peter's parents were Peter and Abigail Leath. We don't know any maiden names except Lucretia's. They were involved in tobacco cultivation in the Warwick Swamp area of Prince George. Later, Arthur JR. advertised in Petersburg newspapers as a master brickmaster and John W. & Lewis B. Leath were both wheelwrights in Petersburg where they remained. I have just discovered our connection with Prince George and hope Leath and Aldridge families will have some information to help me fill in this family. David P. Leath went to Floyd and Greenup counties in KY. He married Amanda Hamilton 1844 in Floyd Co. KY. Thank You for any assistance.
