Biographical Note

Daniel Le Roy (1775 - 1858) was one of the first lawyers to reside in what is now Broome County, New York, settling in Chenango Point in 1801. During this period covered by this account book he purchased land on what is now the west side of Binghamton from the heirs of William Bingham, but failed to make payments on the mortgage. In 1818 he removed with his family to Genesee County, Michigan, where he lived until his death. He was the first Michigan territorial attorney and attorney general.
