We have a document with the story of two (French) brothers coming to Everetts, North Carolina. I have always doubted the French connection, for I thought most of the Leggetts are from England, Scotland, etc.
I know that the Leggett side of my family originated in Coastal North Carolina and spread into Tennessee, Mississippi, and Texas.
I have the family tree back to about 1800, but I cannot trace it further back. I have not spent much time on it in the last ten years.
