In Reply to: Leasures in Ohio and east by David Leasure of 841

Hello David,

I'm not sure I can be of any help, but thought I would let you know that there were several Abraham Leasures in PA. The first one I have record of arrived in 1754 at Baltimore and settled in Upper Dauphin Co., PA. This info comes from page 124 in a book by Rev. A. Stapleton's "Memoirs of the Huguenots in America". I don't know if that book is still available as I found this info in letters written in 1910 to my great aunt whose middle name was LeSeur. His son Daniel Leasure came to Westmoreland Co., PA, married and had a son Abraham who is one of my ancestors. He had Daniel, John, Abraham, Mary and Margaret. There was also an Abraham Leasure family in Bedford Co., PA. If any of this might help, let me know as I have more on this family.
