On January, 21st, 1828, Frans and his wife Willemina were replaced by the "Commissie van Weldadigheid" from Epe to Frederiksoord (kolonie 1 hoeve 111). Frans was a cobbler's servant and he was supposedly disqualified from the military service for missing his right eye.
On June, 14th, 1828 two dutch reformed children (trijntje Krom, born Oct 10th, 1810) and Willen Le Croix (born July 1st, 1814) were placed at the roman catholic family of Frans Leloux. Trijntle would leave after six weeks, while Willem would stay until March, 2nd, 1829.
On April 11th, 1829, the roman catholic Simon Ran would stay at the family for six weeks.
In December 1830 he volunteered as gunner at the "Drentse Mobiele Schutterij", which was involved in the battle against Belgium. Nothing is known here about a missing right eye, but it is known that Frans complained a lot about his wife and wanted to divorce.
The list of 1830 tells us a lot: on November 6th, he was transported to Dort, where he arrived the next day and stayed there with free food. The day after he was on the march with free food, but he returned to the camp on the 9th. On November 28th he was in hospital, but he returned on December 3rd. Until December 25th he was part of the fourth Compagny, second Battallion. After that he served in the 5th compagny of the Drentse Schutters.
His name occurs in the checklist of 1832 as "Johannes Franciscus Le Loux, born at Juli 18th, 1803 in Amsterdam from Johannes and Zwaantje Hazes". He used to live in Frederiksoord.
He got indefinite leave since June 14th, 1833.
On June, 18th, 1833 Frans returns to Frederiksoord and is assigned to colonist L. A. Maatje in colony 1. October, 2nd, 1833 he was replaced to "hoeve 42 Kolonie 1". The 14th of the same month his children returned to him. Pieter Steunenberg and Hilletje Steunenberg-Kok, the latter as housekeeper, were assigned to the same house from november 2nd 1833 till March, 1st, 1824. The ten year old Willemina Ankon joined them on December 14th, 1833.
