Notes for JOSEPH NATHANIEL (LANDRY) LONDEREE:
A Joseph Landry who was born in the Province of Quebec, Canada probably immigrated to Buckingham Co., VA and become known as Joseph Nathaniel Londeree. The French pronunciation of Landry is "Lon der eh", remarkably similar to "Lon der ay" or "Lon der ee", the two common pronunciations for Londeree today. A Joseph Landry who was born February 11, 1816 and was a descendent of Guillaume Landry is not the correct connection based on DNA analyses. However, several DNA analyses stongly suggest that Joseph Nathaniel Londeree descended from one of the Rene Landrys. To date, no other Joseph Landry born in the 1815 to 1820 time frame has been found. Supposedly, Joseph Nathaniel Londeree immigrated to Virginia with one of his uncles and was involved in canal building. (Sources for Joseph Landry: LDS Library - PAF, baptismal record, Virginia censuses and seven DNA analyses).
Joseph was born in Canada (probably Quebec) according to the 1850 and 1860 censuses. Almost all Buckingham County records were destroyed when the courthouse was set afire by tax protestors in 1868. One family story states that Joseph came to the U.S. with his uncle when he was 12 (c. 1828) and they worked on the Kanahwa Canal, although there is no record of their employment (perhaps they worked for subcontractors.) Joseph does not show up on the 1830 VA census. It is thought by family members that Joseph and his uncle worked on the Erie Canal before moving to Virginia. Joseph probably could not read or write English and his name on the census records is spelled differently each time (1840 - Laondree, 1850 - Longarie, 1860 -Longeree). (The first time that the Londeree spelling occurred in public records was in the 1880 census for WPL, JJL, and CNL.) None of the spellings showed up in the Canadian records, so apparently it was spelled differently in Canada. Possible spellings include Landry (pronounced Laundereh in French), DeLondres, Landre, Landri, Landrie, Laundrie, Laundry, Londrea, Londrey, Londreau, Londry, Lundrie, Lundry, Landris, Londray, Londree.
The first public record for Joseph was the 1837 personal property tax list for Buckingham Co., VA; he showed up again in 1839 and 1840. The 1840 census in the Northern District of Buckingham Co. listing him as a 20-30 year old male with a 20-30 year old female (Jane?), a male less than 5 (WPL?), and a slave. According to Jane's obituary he sired 12 children and ten reached adulthood; 11 showed up in various censuses. The twelfth child may have been Alford O. who may have been born in 1862 and lived with Jane's brother, James. There was an A. O. living with James M. Harrison near Manteo in the 1870 census. Apparently he died at a fairly early age. Family stories state that Joseph was a caretaker/tenant on Chapman Glover's farm, which was located just west of Route 602 near to the Slate River. However, Chapman Glover lived with his parents in Albemarle Co., VA until at least 1850 according to that census. In addition, on 11-Apr-1840 the Buckingham personal property tax list showed Joseph Londeree with 83 horses with a tax of $.08. The 1840 census listed him with one slave. The 1850 census lists him with 10 acres improved, 15 acres unimproved, land value of $125, $5 of equipment, and $35 of livestock. The 1860 agricultural census listed him with the following: 50 acres unimproved, 50 acres improved, land value of $500.00, equipment value of $100.00, and livestock value of $170.00. The 25 acres listed by him in 1850 probably was the William Harrison Stark (Jane's father) homestead on the east side of Route 601about .5 mile north of Warminster Rd. (Rt 737); there is a 2 acre cemetery in the southwest corner of the farm. It is reasonable to conclude that Joseph probably lived in this area for a period before 1840 during his courtship of Jane, which was substantiated by the personal property tax lists alluded to above. In addition, the 1840, 1850, and 1860 censuses list him as living near to the Branch family east off of Warminster Road. In all likelyhood, Joseph and Jane lived either on Jane's dad's farm or very near to it from 1840 to 1860+. The Chapman Glover farm was 4 miles "as the crow flies" from this location, 8 miles by roads. Therefore, if Joseph did live on the Glover farm, it was for only a short period of time before going to war. No records, other than the personal property tax for his horses and one slave, were found regarding Joseph's source of livelihood in 1840, but the 1850 and 1860 censuses listed his occupation as a farmer. Family stories also state that Joseph served in the military as a paid substitute for Chapman Glover. Perhaps his family moved to the Glover farm when he agreed to serve in the War in Glover's place; this home probably was much bigger and nicer than where they had been living. After Joseph was killed at Harper's Ferry, Glover apparently tricked Mary Jane (Joseph's second child) into handing over the War substitute agreement and then evicted the Londeree family. Joseph's children, for the most part, led meager lifestyles as sharecroppers/caretakers and, in several cases, lived together with other family members for various periods of time. Eventually many of Joseph's children owned farms; in fact, George's and Thomas' descendants still live on the old homestead properties. Some of Joseph's grandchildren were quite successful economically and many of his great grandchildren attended college. In 1998, it appears that the Londeree's economically range from low middle class to upper class. It appears that many have very strong religious beliefs.

- On croyait plus tôt, qu'il était le fils de Pierre (#3513) et Louise Marie Poirier avant les tests d'ADN, qui en font un descendant de René le jeune. Il est peu probable que le conjoint de Jane Janette Harrison Starks soit effectivement le fils de Pierre Landry et Louise Poirier.
