Robert LeRoy, the partner of William M. Fenton in laying out and building up the village, came with his father, Daniel LeRoy, from New York to Detroit in 1818 and , after a residence in Pontiac from 1830, came with Mr. Fenton, in the winter of 1836-37, to the site of the latter village. They opened the first store in the place.
same source, p. 18- Among the men of Pontiac who came here at an early day was Judge Daniel LeRoy, of whom mention has before been made. He was singular in many things, and the least of which was that he became pious, joined the church and thereupon became one of the abilitionists of the old stamp, who, though in a very small minority, thought they were right, and went ahead, believing that time would, with patience and perseverance, accomplish all things, and like Wellington at the battle of Waterloo, that they could pound the longest-- and so they have. This is a digression perhaps, but illustrative of the times when the judge took the abilition paper circulated in Fentonville--The Star of the East-- published in the state of Maine.

11. [Anonymous, History of Oakland County Michigan, ]
p. 59-In 1819 the Pontiac colony was enlarged by the coming of Calvin Hotchkiss; and Major Oliver Williams.....Avon was also gladdened in 1819 by the immigration of Judge Daniel LeRoy
p. 163- On his application Daniel Le Roy satisfied the court that he was licensed to practice in the supreme court of New York and was admitted as an attorney of this court. MR. Le Roy for many succeeding years occupied a prominent position in the history of Oakland County, as well as in the state of Michigan. He was born in Poughkeepsie, New York, on the 17th day of May, 1775. After due preparation and study he was admitted to practice in the supreme court in April 1800. He was afterward admitted to the court of common pleas of Tioga county, and in 1801 established himself in Binghampton and commenced practice. He also took an active part in political, educational and military matters. In 1817, when the influx of travel from the east was tending westward, he followed with his family to Detroit, and there commenced laboring in his profession. His record shows that he had business relations with Macomb county, filling there the office of judge of probate.
Prior to 1820 the Pontiac Company had erected a mill at Pontiac, and the county seat having been established at that place and MR. LeRoy having made Pontiac his home, he was the first resident lawyer admitted to the court.
It cannot be supposed that business could be very extensive or lucrative; but the county was rapidly filling up; new settlers were continually arriving, and to a discriminating mind it must have been evident that Oakland county would soon furnish adequate support for an industrious lawyer.
Mr. Le Roy was appointed the first prosecuting attorney for the county. He was also justice of the peace, and in 1822 postmaster. In 1831 he was appointed United States attorney for the territory of Michigan.
Mr. LeRoy was chief justice of the county court of Oakland county, and held the office for two years, and in 1833 one of the judges of the county for the term of three years.
In November 1835, Governor Mason, acting governor, appointed him one of the commissioners to settle the boundary dispute between Michigan and Ohio. He was a member as early as 1830 and 1831 of the territorial council. Upon the organization of the territory as a state, Mr. LeRoy was appointed in July 1836, the first attorney-general of the new state.
The foregoing brief synopsis shows that Judge LeRoy took a very active and prominent part in our history. The important offices that he hald is most convincing evidence of his popularity and ability. About 1850 he left Pontiac and removed to Fenton, where some of his children resided, and where he died at a ripe old age February 11, 1858.

p. 104- In the year 1829 Daniel Leroy, Olmstead Chamberlain and Gideon O. Whittemore sold to Colonel Andrew Mack, General John R. Williams and Major Joseph Campau the newspaper called the Oakland Chronicle, the office being transferred here, and Hector (colored), the well-known slave of General Williams, was placed in charge of it.
p. 105- In the year 1831 Daniel Leroy, Olmstead Chamberlain and Gideon O. Wittemore sold to Colonel Mack, General Williams and Major Campau the newspaper called the Oakland Chronicle, the office being transferred here, and the well known slave "Hector" was placed in charge of it. When the late Colonel Sheldon McKnight entered to take possession he was fiercely resisted by "Hector", who showed fight and the colonel (I heard the colonel relate this circumstance) had to retreat. This paper was afterwards merged into the Detroit Gazette, and afterwards into the Detroit Free Press.

13.[Anonymous, Early History of Michigan with Biographies of State Officers, Members of Congress, Judges and Legislators, 1888]
Daniel Leroy, Attorney General of Michigan, 1836-7, was born in Nova Scotia, May 17, 1775, and was educated there and at Binghamton, N.Y. He studied law and was admitted to practice at the age of twenty-five. He came to Pontiac, Michigan, and was the first lawyer admitted to practice at the Oakland county bar, July 17, 1820. He was prosecuting attorney of the county for several years and was chief justice of the county court from 1829 to 1883. He was a member of the territorial council in 1830-31, and a presidential elector in 1836. By appointment of Gov. Mason he was the first attorney general under a state government. He was a lawyer of ability and ranked high in the bar of the state. Late in life he retired from business, and died at Fenton, February 11, 1858. Politically a Democrat.
