Short Sketch of John Leithead
|Josue [Joshua Lamoreaux] was born 9 Jan 1739,
in Colonial New York,
son of Daniel Lamoreaux and Jeanne Masse.
His mother died soon after his birth.
Josue moved several times in his life,
first along the Hudson River.
Later, because of his Loyalist sentiments
he was exiled into Canada and
traveled up the St John River and
settled in Parrtown and Gage, and finally,
in Upper Canada, an area which is now Toronto.
