James Q. Lasley/Leslie

 
 

Born: Abt. 1807
Died: 

 

 

                           

James Q. Lasley (also spelled Leslie and Lesley) was born about 1807 and seems to have been the son of James Lesley/Leslie, Sr.

 
 
 
The 1810 Census shows James Leslie, Sr. living in Iredell County, NC.  James Q. Leslie's age would have been about 3 years old - placing him in the category of "Males < 10".

The 1830 Iredell County shows James Leslie living beside of Robert Lesley.  More than likely this James Lesley was the father of James Q. Leslie, and his age would have been 50 - 60 years old.  James Q. Lesley would have been about 23 years old and would have fallen in the age category "20 - 29".
 
It appears that Robert Lesley may have been a brother of James Q. Lesley - and son of James Lesley, Sr..  The 1850 Census shows Robert's age as 54 indicating that he would have been born about 1796.  This would put him in the correct category, age 30 - 39, for the 1830 Census.

James Q. Leslie married "Unknown" and that marriage produced at least five children.
 
 
 
The 1840 Census shows James Q. Leslie living in Iredell County, NC, with his family.  His age would have been between 30 - 40 years old (around 33) and his wife would have been between 20 - 30 years old.
 
The Census shows them with three children: a son who was less than 5 years old but he could have been 6 to 9 (more than likely William P.), a daughter aged 5 to 9 (more than likely Amanda who would have been about 5), and another daughter who was less than 5 years olf (more than likely Margaret Elizabeth who would have been age 2).

The 1850 Iredell County, NC, Census, shows James Leslie, age 35 (although he was more than likely around 43), living next door to Robt. (Robert) Lasley, age 54.

To begin with, James' age must be incorrect,  Both the 1860 and 1870 Census indicate that he was born in 1807.  His correct age would have been around 43 instead of 35 in 1850.
 
With a 10-year difference in time, the 1850 Census shows additional children for James Q. Leslie as Wm. P. (William P.), age 20, and Amanda, age 14, are not shown on the 1860 Census, but Elizabeth, age 12, (shown on the 1860 Census as Margaret E., age 23), James, age 9, (shown on the 1860 Census as James O., age 19), and Jane L., age 7, (shown on the 1860 Census as Martha J., age 17), were.  With the names and ages being so similar, there is little doubt that this is the same family.
 
If James Q. Leslie (Lasley) was indeed 43 years old in 1850, then his neighbor Robert, age 54, was too young to be his father, and must have been an older brother.
