2 John Valleau

John, a son of Fauconnier Valleau and Elizabeth Earle, of whom there are no records. The few facts concerning him are these: He was a Loyalist and located at Maugerville, Nova Scotia, which is shown in the previous sketch of Fauconnier Valleau; removed to the States, and, it is said, died in 1812. He was unmarried.

3. David Valleau

David, a son of Fauconnier Valleau and Elizabeth Earle. There are no known records of his birth or baptism. In the struggle between England and the Colonies, unlike other members of his family, David Valleau's sympathies were with the latter, and he became a private in a New Jersey Regiment. It is said his father was so much incensed at his son joining the Patriot Army to fight the Crown that he shook his fist at him, and denounced him in bitter terms, as he was marching with his regiment along Broadway to the seat of war. David's regiment was a part of the force, under General Montgomery, engaged in'the unfortunate expedition against Quebec, Canada, in December, 1775. He was among those captured there by the British, and his name is found in the list of prisoners released on parole by General Carle ton. This list is given in Peter Force's American Archives, 5 S., Vol. I, p. 1169, and contains the names of those who accepted the parole, out of three hundred American prisoners, including officers. The parole was as follows: "We whose names are here underwritten, do hereby solemnly promise and engage to his Excellency General Carleton, not to say or do anything against his Majesty's person and Government, and to repair, whenever required so to do, wherever his Excellency, or any other of his Majesty's Commanders-in-Chief in America, shall please to direct. In testimony whereof we have hereunto set our names at Quebeck, the 9th. day of August 1776."

After the war was over, David Valleau became a minister of the Methodist Episcopal Church, and his connection with that body is as follows:

"Admitted on trial in 1791. Stationed at Cambridge [Washington County, N. Y.]. He was on trial for the second year."

"The General Minutes of 1792, have David Valleau stationed with Robert Green, at Albany, N. Y."

"Admitted into full connection in 1793. Stationed at New Rochelle, N. Y., in 1793."

"In the General Minutes of 1794 this record is made: Question 9. Who have been dismissed for improper conduct? Answer. Simon Carlisle, David Richardson, James Johnson, David Valleau."

[Author's Notes.—In the history of Rye, Westchester County, N. Y., by the Reverend Charles W. Baird, it is stated that Methodism was introduced into the county in 1771, and that the Reverend S. K. Talbot was the circuit preacher at the close of 1787, the Reverend David Valleau being mentioned as one of his successors. The improper conduct for which these men were dismissed from the ministry in 1794, was probably some breach of church doctrine or discipline.]

David Valleau was unmarried, and died before 1820.
