Charles DePauw
my 4th g. grandfather

Charles De Pauw, born Ghent, Belgium March 11, 1753, died in Louisiana August 31, 1814.  DePauw owned property in Lincoln Co. as early as 1787 and lived in northwest Lincoln Co. (Mercer, Boyle and Casey co. area) until about 1810.  He was in the French army at Yorktown and served with Shelby at the Battle of the Thames.  Charles DePauw was also living in Lincoln Co. when he was involved in the plot by the Frenchman Genet to overthrow the Spanish in Louisiana.
I also have his military record from the French archives, a listing of him as a volunteer in the Kentucky Mounted Volunteers and a photograph of burial site in Salem, Indiana.
