LeBon/LaBoon/LaBoone Family

Pierre Lebon (LaBoon) was born in Rochefort, France, January 6, 1744/45, son of Pierre Jean LeBon (1722-1778) and Marie Capet. Pierre Jean LaBon died in France on 15th August 1778 was buried in Rochefort. His widow, Marie Capet LaBon, died 8 August, 1803 in Anderson District, South Carolina.

Elizabeth Lebon
Pierre Lebon (1745-1799) m. Anne (Hannah?) Gervais (1749-1815, SC)
(Anne born and married in Rochefort, France, daughter of Louis Gervais)

Peter LaBoon was enumerated in the 1790 South Carolina Census with 2 white males 16 and up (including head of household) and 3 white females.

William C. LaBoon is mentioned in the Estate Records of William Hawk (deceased in 1814), Morgan County, Georgia. It is not known if he is related to Peter LaBoon.

Many LaBon/LaBoon researchers have suggested that Rachel Jarvis was a sister to Elisha Jarvis, son of James Jarvis and Sarah Kelly. Elisha Jarvis was born in about 1757. If Rachel is related to Elisha, I suspect that she is his daughter from a previous marriage. Rachel Jarvis LaBoon is among those listed in the 1830 Anderson Co., SC Census
