The British had just started a new settlement called Charles Town in the Carolinias. d'Iberville was to attack Charles Town and create a resistence to the advancements of England into French territory. The French were to settle several colonies in the Louisiana Territory and to establish trading relations with the Indians in that region. Jacques and Pierre LeFleau were a part of this group.

State Mental Health Facility in Tuscaloosa. These LOVVORN children are presumed to have been born in GA. The mother died when Warddie was a small girl, then the father a few years later. Somehow these children wound up in the Cullman Co. area. Warddie married Armnies CRUMBLEY. They had 8 children and lived in Blountsville until their deaths.
