Van Leslie Tombstone

Van Leslie

Nov. 1828 - June 1895

 

The Leslie Clan is Scot-Irish. They came to America by way of Fairfield Co., South Carolina in 1700's. My earliest confirmed link is Wilson Leslie, Van's father. He was born 1803 in S.C. The earlier ancestors are probable. I have not confirmed these links yet but given name patterns and information I do have, I would be about 85% sure these are correct.
