Subject: [LeCROY] New List Administrator
Date: Wed, 19 Apr 2000 01:00:58 EDT


Hi, LeCROY Researchers:

I have recently "adopted" this mailing list. I have assumed the
responsibilities for this list. It is my understanding that this list
previously existed, but there had not been an actual List Administrator
before now. My hopes are that this may become an active list, and that we
can try to tie in the various LeCroy or Lecroy ancestors. I did NOT assume
the duties as List Administrator for the LACROIX list because I wanted to
mainly concentrate on the Americanized spelling of the LeCROY surname.
Although, I have heard that our name has sometimes been interchangeable
between LeCROY and LACROIX for our American LeCROYs, I feel that, generally
speaking, the majority of the LeCROYs with this Americanized spelling, are
probably kin in some way. There are fewer LeCROYs in American than there are
the LACROIXs, with the French spelling.

There were LeCROYs in South Carolina, who migrated to Georgia. From there
many went on to Alabama. In my husband's case, his family kept moving until
they reached Texas. Other LeCROY famililies wound up in other southern
states, such as Mississippi, Florida, Arkansas and Louisiana.

I want to strongly urge each and everyone of you, to encourage other LeCROYs
to join this mailing list, so that we can all learn more about our common
roots, as well as, how we eventually tie in with one another. If you need
instructions for joining the list, please let me know. Also, I would like
for all of us to "introduce" ourselves and give a brief summary of our LeCROY
roots. Some people would possibly refer to this as a "Roll Call." However,
if anyone feels inclined to call it this, please, PLEASE, do not have as the
subject of your email: Roll Call. If you would like to title your message
as "Roll Call -- Jesse LeCROY, South Carolina" that would be great. As I am
a LeCROY by marriage, I will always be referring to my husband's LeCROY
roots, since I have started researching his family names. He is James Alton
LeCROY.

Below is what we know about his ancestors. We have hit a "brick wall" with
our John Thomas LeCROY, but I feel that he SOMEHOW ties in with others, as
there seemed to have been other "Thomas," "Luther," and "James," LeCROYs,
which are common names in my husband's line.
