La Due, Descendants of Pierre Ladoux, the Hugenot immigrant who escaped from France
Compiled by P. Davidson-Peters 1999
 
 
The La Due family presented here has been done so with the contribution of Landis Bender, a direct descendant of Samuel Peters La Due who contacted me in January of 2010.

The origin of this family is believed to descend from Pierre Ledoux, a Huguenot who escaped France, supposedly by having himself boxed up in a hogshead and put on board a ship to England. Research from Landis provides a clue that Pierre might have been at a Huguenot parish called Threadneedle in London where he may have married Marthe Anneraud if she was with him during the escape. According to records, Pierre purchased land in March of 1697 at New Rochelle, New York which was a destination for many Huguenots. There is a plaque in New Rochelle whereupon his name is listed as a Huguenot immigrant.

This family name has been spelled LaDue, Ladue, Ladew, Ladoe, Ladow, Ladu and probably any other way it might have sounded to anyone who might have been recording a particular document. The name, however, has always been pronounced La Due or Le Due. Whether the family changed the spelling of the name during the years French and Indian War to throw off suspicion that they may be harboring French Sympathy, or that the spelling changed over the generations due to illiteracry or simply to differenentiate one family from another is not known. Whatever the case, the Saratoga branch of the family (specifically the Ladows in Halfmoon and Milton) wrote the name as "Ladow" for sometime until it seems Samuel Peters La Due began to sign his name as La Due rather than Ladow, and by the 1880s when the family was residing in Minnesota, all the families of this branch were spelling the name La Due, and continue to use this spelling today.

It is speculated (but not proven), that Abraham La Due or Ladow, was the father of Jane who married Samuel Bentley; and Thomas who married Jerusha (Peters). The two may have had a half brother named Stephen who was also mentioned in the will of Thomas Smith. It is believed that Abraham's father might have been Stephen Ladow who was born in 1732 and died in Milton, Saratoga Co., New York in on 24 Feb 1824 and left a bequest in his will to the children of his son Abraham, though he unfortuantely did not name them.

Again, this is speculation. The only fact that is known is that Thomas La Due was married to Jerusha (Peters) as this information was included in the will of her father wherein he "makes a bequest to Samuel & Jane the son and daughter of my daughter Jerusha by her 1st husband Thomas Ladoe."

The goal of all the La Due, etc researchers has been to link themself with the this patriarch, but unfortunately, though Pierre and his wife named their children in his will, most of their children did not leave wills of their own, at least none that have been found. The result has left "little fallen branches trying to find our place on the tree." The following branch respresented here is that of Jane and Thomas, believed to be the children of Abraham. It is from this point that the descendancy of Pierre Ladoux is presented.

Many thanks to Landis Bender for his research and contributions, and more recently to Pat Trimbell who contacted me in October of 2013 with information on Mary LaDue, daughter of Samuel and wife of Charles W. Tenney. Should you have any information you would like to share, or if you've found any errors, please feel free to contact Patricia Davidson-Peters.

 
JANE LADOW / LADUE - speculated to be the daughter of Abraham, she was born on or about 03 Jul 1784 in Saratoga Co., New York. She married Samuel Bentley sometime before 1806, he having been born in New York on or about 09 Feb 1786. They appear in the 1810 census residing in Warren Twp., Herkimer Co., New York and in 1820 were enumerated in Cato, Cayuga County, NY. According to Samuel's headstone in God's Acre Cemetery, he was a reverend and died on 09 Mar 1823 at the young age of thirty-seven years and one month.

In 1830, 1840, 1850, and 1860 Jane is listed as living in Brutus, Cayuga Co., New York. She died on 28 Nov 1865, and according to her headstone was aged eighty-one years, four months, and 25 days at the time of her death.

GENERATION II
 
MARIA BENTLEY - daughter of Jane (Ladow) and Samuel Bentley, was born 04 Jan 1806 in New York. She married Lewis B. Mintonye sometime before 1825. They resided in Elk Twp., Warren Co., Pennsylvania where they appear to be enumerated in the 1840 census. The history of Warren County, Pennsylvania states that Lewis "came to Elk from New York and settled near the State live, and near the junction of Chautauqua and Cattaraugus counties" In 1850 they were living in Ellicott, Chautaqua Co., New York where Lewis held several town offices such as school director, auditor, town clerk, and was commissioned justice of the peace in Warren Co., PA on 04 Mar 1848..

Maria died on 15 Jan 1856 in Elk Twp., and was laid to rest at Clendening Cemetery. Lewis removed to Jamestown, Chautauqua Co., New York and though he did no remain there long, he was enumerated in the 1860 census for that place and appears to have then been married to a woman by the name of Perlina. In 1870 a Lewis Mintonye was listed in the 1870 census residing in Union Borough, Erie Co., Pennsylvania whose age and place of birth matches that of Maria's husband - in this census he appears to be married to a woman by the name of Caroline. No date of death or place of burial is known.

STEPHEN LADUE BENTLEY - son of Jane (Ladow) and Samuel Bentley, was born 28 Oct 1809 in New York. He Hettie Maria (Ogilsbie) on 27 Mar 1836, she having been born in New Jersey in about 1814. The family was enumerated in 1850 residing in Cato, Cayuga Co., N Y with their six children. By 1860 the family was living in Onondaga Co., New York in the town of Elbridge though only three of their children (Michael, Mary & Hettie) were then living with them.

It appears Hettie died sometime before 1868 when Stephen married (2) Mary Hedger on the 12th of February. In 1870 he had returned to Cayuga County and was residing in Mentz. He died two years later in Sennett, Cayuga Co., New York on 28 Apr 1872.

SARAH BENTLEY - daughter of Jane (Ladow) and Samuel Bentley, was born 12 Sep 1811 in New York. She married Myron B. Rude on 03 Feb 1830. In 1850 Myron was listed as a grocer with wife and five children, residing in Brutus, Cayuga Co., New York. As Hopkins states in the Facts Regarding Weedsport, "The direct line of the New York Central railroad was opened May 1, 1853, and trains commenced running on schedule time. R. G. Adams was the first station agent at this place. No buildings for passengers or for freight had been erected but Myron Rude kept a restaurant on the south side of the tracks, and this was used for an office and as a waiting room for passengers."

In 1860 Myron was listed as a laborer, his wife and three daughters were listed in his household; but Sarah died a few years later on 26 Feb 1863. On 10 Aug 1866 he married Mrs. Tryphenia Cole in Van Buren, Onondaga Co., NY who was the daughter of Matthew Baker & Lydia (Millard) and widow of James Cole. Myron and Tryphenia were enumerated as a blended family in 1870 residing in the town of Ira, and in 1880 were living in the Village of Merdian.

It is believed that Myron B. Rude died in 1892 and was laid to rest at Meridian Cemetery. His wife Sarah was buried in God's Acre Cemetery in Weedsport as were his parents Gen. John "Orange" Rude who died 31 Mar 1830 and Phebe on 31 Aug 1830; and her parents Samuel, who died .

Note: The Myron Rude family has been extracted and indexed from the census records as Rude, Rood and Hood.

THOMAS S. BENTLEY - son of Jane (Ladow) and Samuel Bentley, was born 09 Jan 1814 in New York. He married Jerusha (Healy) on 04 Sep 1844, and it is believed she is the daughter of John Mason Healy and his wife Sally (West). This John Healy may have been involved in the Underground Railroad in Sennett and was noted as being "a consistent and firm friend of the freedom of the slaves." His father, Deacon Ebenezer Healy, had come in "from Newton Massacusetts, by Indian trail from Utica and settled about three-fourths of a mile south-west of Sennett village" being was among those who first settled on lot 21 in Sennett in 1794. The Cayuga Baptist Association was organized in the barn of Decaon Healy in 1801.

Thomas and Jerusha resided in Brutus where they were listed in the 1850, 1860, 1870, 1880 census records. Jerusha died at the age of fifty-four years, nine months, and 15 days on 30 Jun 1881. Thomas died on 29 Apr 1888 at the age of seventy-four years, three months and twenty days. They were buried in Weedsport Rural Cemetery in Brutus, Cayuga Co., New York.

Note: John Mason Healy and his wife Sally (West) were laid to rest in Sennett Rural Cemetery.

CHILDREN OF
THOMAS S. BENTLEY & JERUSHA (HEALY)
  1. George T. Bentley - born on or about 22 Aug 1834 in Cayuga Co., New York; died 02 Sep 1842 at the age of eight years and 11 days. He was laid to rest in the Weedsport Rural Cemetery.
  2. Alfred H. Bentley - born Aug 1846 in New York; died 22 Jul 1907 in Cayuga Co., NY and laid to rest in Weedsport Rural Cemetery.
  3. Cecilia Bentley - born about 1848 in New York; enumerated in the 1850 and 1860 census residing in Brutus, Cayuga Co., NY. May have been married to Seymour Hunting (brother of Frank M. Hunting), she having been born about 1839 and died 17 Jul 1875. Seymour born 1835 and died 07 Oct 1873 - both laid to rest in Weedsport Rural Cemetery.
  4. Ellen Bentley - born about 1852 in New York; enumerated in the 1860 census residing in Brutus, Cayuga Co., NY.
  5. Mary Bentley - born about 1854 in New York; enumerated in the 1860 & 1870 census residing in Brutus, Cayuga Co., NY.
 
GEORGE H. BENTLEY - son of Jane (Ladow) and Samuel Bentley, was born on 14 May 1818 in Cayuga Co., New York. He married Electa L. Gaylord on 15 Nov 1848 at Skaneateles, Onondaga Co., New York. It seems probable that Electa was the daughter of Silas Gaylord and his wife Hannah who were both laid to rest (as well as a son of George & Electa's) at the Quaker Cemetery located on Benson Road in the town of Skaneateles.

The 1850 and 1860 household enumerating George and Electa, includes Hannah Gaylord. Cemetery inscriptions indicate she died 14 Mar 1863 at the age of 75, and her husband Silas having died 30 Jan 1841 at the age of 55. The Lawton family, enumerated next door in each of these census records, were also laid to rest in the Quaker Cemetery - thus the probability that Silas and Hannah were the parents of Electa.

In 1870 the family of George and Electa had grown to include four additional children, and son Edwin (or Erwin / Irwin) had died on 20 Apr 1863, at about age five. In 1880 and 1900 they were residing in Skaneateles. George died later that year on 09 Jul 1900 and his widow on 17 Mar 1909. They were laid to rest in Lakeview cemetery (Sec. 9, Lot 259).

Note: Electa's full name may have been Lydia Electa or Electa Lydia.

MINERVA SOPHIA BENTLEY - the daughter of Samuel Bentley and Jane (Ladow), was born 13 May 1823 in Cayuga Co., NY. She married Cicero Webster on 07 Mar 1839 in that county. Cicero was born in Bloomfield, Hartford Co., CT on 15 Nov 1812 and was the son of Major Hezekiah Webster and Anna (Goodwin) who came from Connecticut to Sennett where he had bought the place of Hezekiah Freeman and lived until his death on 20 May 1835 at the age of sixty-nine.

Cicero and Minerva were enumerated in the 1850 census residing in the town of Cato. In 1860 their household included an eleven year-old girl named Ellen M. who was born in Massachusetts and she does not appear to be their daughter. Also listed is their one year-old son Chester A., and two boarders. In 1870 their son Chester was residing in their household, but by 1880 Cicero and Minerva were listed in Weedsport and their son Chester had moved out and was living at the boarding house of Carter Hickok in Auburn where he was working as a store clerk.

Cicero died sometime before 1900 when Minerva was listed as widowed and living at "The Home for the Friendless" located on 46 Grant Avenue. Here she is listed in the census as born May 1822, mother of one child which was living. Minerva died this same year on 16 Jul 1900 and was laid to rest in the Weedsport Rural Cemetery where it is presumed her husband is also buried.

CHILDREN OF
MINERVA S. (BENTLEY) & CICERO WEBSTER
  1. Chester Albert Webster - born 20 Oct 1859 in Cato, Cayuga Co., New York; married Emma J. Little, the daughter of John H. and Mary E. in about 1882 and were the parents of Maude E. Webster.
 
SAMUEL PETERS LA DUE - son of Thomas La Due and Jerusha (Peters), was born 12 May 1811 in Columbia, Herkimer Co., New York and appears to have been named after his maternal grandfather, Samuel Peters who was born in 1769 and the son of Richard Peters and Jerusha (Sutton) of Halfmoon, Saratoga Co., New York.

His parents were from Saratoga County where the La Dues had settled since before the Revolutionary War in areas such as Galway and Halfmoon. At about age five his father died, and family notes suggest that he "was brought up more or less by an Uncle Thomas who had a carding and fulling mill and also was a tanner." No documentation has yet surfaced to confirm this information, but it would seem likely that he would be taken in by family.

Samuel was married to Sarah Maria (Wright) on 11 Aug 1831 at Esperence, Schohaire Co., New York where her father Calvin was living. She was born in that town on 01 Oct 1804 and was nearly twenty-eight years old when their first child was born in Otsego Co., New York. By 1840 the family had moved to Canada, and in 1845 were residing in Napanee.

A man with a violent temper, Samuel seemed to have had a calling and after "being converted was entirely freed from is control." He attended the Methodist Seminary in Lima, New York and joined the Wesleyan Methodist ministry and was a successful revivalist for years in the area known as the village of Napanee Mills in eastern Upper Canada. Although he performed baptisms as early as 1836, he is not enumerated as a clergyman in the census records until 1860 when the family was residing in Rockford, Floyd Co., Iowa. They had returned to the United States sometime between 1846 and 1850 when they were were enumerated in the Kenosha Co., Wisconsin census living in the town of Salem.

In 1870 Samuel was once again listed as a farmer, and his youngest son John, was enumerated as teaching school at Fall, Cerro Gordo, Iowa. Samuel has not been located in the 1880 census records - not in the Villiage of Plymouth in Falls Township, Cerro Gordo, Iowa, nor in Falls Township itself. Although records show he purchased 158.22 acres in Polk Co., Minnesota on 10 Nov 1882 and 160 acres on 20 Aug 1884, he also does not appear in the 1880 census for that county or near his son Calvin who was residing near there at the time.

Samuel and Sarah reappear in 1885 Minnesota State Census residing in the Aedle household of their son John Samuel La Due. He died a few years later in Fertile, Polk Co., Minnesota on 08 Dec 1889. His widow Sarah was enumerated in her son John's household in 1900, and passed away that year on the 26th of August.

Note: Samuel listed his name as Ladow at one time, but later spelled it La Due, which is the current spelling of his descendants who later resided in Minnesota.

RUTH ANN BARCLAY - daughter of Jerusha (Peters), widow of Thomas La Due, and her second husband David Barclay. Ruth Ann was born 16 Aug 1828 in New York and was enumerated in the 1850 census residing with her parents in South Bristol, Ontario Co., New York. The following year she married Alfred Beeman in a double wedding ceremony on 31 Dec 1851. Her wedding announcement appeared in the Ontario Messenger, Canandaigua, Ontario, New York on 14 January 1852 and reads: "MARRIED - At the house of Elias Huntley, in Cheshire, Canandaigua, on Wednesday, Dec. 31st, 1851, by the Rev. Joseph W. Pennoyer, Mr. Alfred Beeman to Miss Ruth Ann Barclay, all of S. Bristol. By the same, at the same time and place, Mr. Alfred Holcomb to Miss Jerusha Barclay, all of South Bristol."

Ruth's husband Alfred Beeman appears to be the son of Abel and Ann who were also residing in South Bristol in 1850. According to the cemetery inscriptions, he was born on 08 Jun 1822. By 1860 Ruth and Alfred were married and living in Italy, Yates Co., New York with their two son Charles and Delford. In 1870 Alfred's widowed mother was residing with them in the Town of Benton along with son Charles and daughter Carrie, and in 1880 they were listed in Middlesex, Yates Co., New York.

Enumerated in the 1892 New York State Census, Alfred died seven years later on 02 Nov 1899. The following year his widow Ruth was listed as a widow residing in her son's 1900 household in Broome Co., New York. She not located on the 1910 census, but she died 05 Nov 1911 at the age of eighty-three years, two months and twenty days. They were buried in the historic Riverside Cemetery at Endicott (Old Union), Broome Co., NY.
