From France to Savannah to DuPont...
The information I have is from the "History of Clinch County". Peter DuPont came from France with his 2 Brothers. Paul DuPont went North, Eugene DuPont went South (I have no idea what happened to him) & Peter, I believe settled in Savannah, Georgia. My focus is on the descendants of Peter DuPont.
On August 31st of 1819, John Peter Augustus DuPont was born in Savannah, Georgia. Approximately 1850, he wed Miss Eliza Green Nichols, And by her had 3 Sons, J.P.A. DuPont Jr., Thomas Charlton DuPont, and Lee Lefebvre DuPont (My Great Grandpa).
J.P.A. DuPont Jr. (would, later in life be known as Augustus DuPont) was born in Savannah, GA on September 17th, 1856.
Thomas Charlton DuPont was born at Darien, GA on November 27th, 1858, raised in DuPont, Ga (then called Lawton). He died Sept. 6th, 1884 at the age of 26 yrs old.
Lee Lefebvre DuPont was born in Savannah, Ga. on October 23rd, 1863. He has grown up in DuPont, GA since babyhood.
There is oh so much to tell about their lives... and I will... later...
