Hello,

Would you by chance have any info. on the Michael LeBoeuf that is listed as having his land refunded?

Michael LeBoeuf, had a land claim in congress in the years of 1832-34, it was for land, some where in the State of Louisiana, it was on the Mississippi River. It seems he had the land over 40 or 50, years, from the old government. When the new government took over he re-filed his title then when the pre-emption law passed in 1830, he asked for his money back which was; $60.69, the Bill finely passed and was approved on June 26, 1834.
