Jane,
...I found your research on the Leavell family. First let me say what an awesome job of researching and thank you for sharing your work.
I am very intersted in Generation 5 family #26 California Jeter & Bartholomew Baker. I would like to know if you've uncovered anything about this particular Baker family. (your 2 were b 1740s VA)
...In my maternal line I have an Elijah BAKER b c 1758/60 VA, served in the REV WAR from VA (pension app says he enlisted in Abermarle Co), then moved to KY and married Elizabeth McCLURE on the 7th or 12 of Jan 1786/7/8 ( I'm trying to remember off the top of my head w/o notes) in Lincoln Co KY. Lincoln Co was one of the original KY Counties when it was created from VA but settlers were in the area when it was still part of VA.
I cannot find a Bartholomew Baker family in Abermarle Co VA at the time Elijah enlisted but there is a HENRY Baker (don't know who he is yet) Could be the dad, Bartholomew(IF he IS the dad) ihad already died.
...Lincoln Co splits and part becomes Warren Co KY (as well as others) where I found this Baker family along with Richard, James, William whom I believe are brothers of Elijah. All of them eventually end up in Hopkins Co KY with their families.
...A dau of Elijah & Elizabeth Baker: Sarah "Sally" BAKER b Lincoln Co KY m 1808 in Warren Co KY to John MORRISON b 1790 ( I think) in VA.
...Elijah, Elizabeth and children, along with Sally & John move to the Missouri Territory around 1820. Elijah died and is buried in Washington Co MO. Supposedly his will can be found there but as of today I haven't had time to get there to find it. (It's not in my library either in book or microfilm that I can find).
...RESEARCHERS claim that Elijah is the s/o fo BARTHOLOMEW JR Baker &??, so Bartholomew SR, s/o Samuel.
...PROBLEM: I can't find squat! It appears, looking at the ages, YOUR Bartholomew could be another older BROTHER of my Elijah. I think it is interesting your Bartholomew names one of his sons Elijah.
As far as I've been able to uncover my Elijah did NOT name any of his children Bartholomew or Elijah or Samuel which I think is very odd since I thought that was THE way to do things in the early days of our country.( Is my Elijah the black sheep of the family? or did he get lost in the tree somehow-no one else has ever tried to research him?) I have a couple of lines where the immigrant had a dozen or more children and those children named all their children the same names. By the time they did this for 3 or 4 generations, it makes for some very confusing research!
...Any help or leads would be greatly appreciated. I get so confused with the East Coast search b/c I get lost trying to find documents. I have found some in the strangest places and NOWHERE they are supposed to be. Makes me wonder where some got their info. If I find something on the net that looks promising, I use it as a reference point to start. I then go to those counties/states and search for documents. Until I've found documents to back up the statements, I consider the information a theory. It is really wonderful and exciting when I stumble across a well documented site. I feel as if I've hit the jackpot!
...Any help or leads, even just the tinest tid-bit, would be greatly appreciated. I 'll be happy to share anything I have, if you want it. Forgive me for being lazy and not pulling my records out. I do have the exact dates, marriage records, etc. in my files. Thanks, in advance, for all your help and taking time to read my note.

Notes for SARAH JETER:
John Crosby's will appears in SC court records. His will also appears in Monroe Co. MS records when his widow, Sarah Jeter Crosby, dies there...I've been told that his will appears in MS because his estate was quite large so required court involvement at Sarah's death.

Notes for PRISCILLA JETER:

Sent: Mon 9/07/09 6:01 PM
.....Jane, Thank you for your reply, regarding my Jeter/ Moseley genealogy search.
.....Yes, William Jeter and Margaret's Vaughn's daughter Pricilla Jeter did marry Benjamin Moseley' (died: will written 18 Nov. 1794; Recorded July 6 1795 Edgefield co SC
BenjaminMoseley's will (Abstradt) Wife:
Pricilla (dau. of William Jeter)
Palpy (Penelope
Elizabeth
Sarah, John
and one on the way.
.....I am trrying to prove and connect my Margaret Moseley Hill (Moseley family history) is in deed the daughter of Pricilla Jeter and Benjamin Moseley. I am trying to piece it together. I will try to make it brief, which is hard for me to do in getting the information to you.
.....Margaret Moseley Hill (widow) moved with her family from Edgefield, SC to Chickasaw Co. Mississippi between 1840 and 1850.
The Chickasaw Co, Ms 1850 Mortality Schedule list Pricilla Mosely 93 years old Female widow, born Virginia died 9/1849 cause old age.
Pricilla Jeter's sister Sarah Jeter (Wiliam Jeter's will 1793-1797 Edgefield SC) married John Crosby and they moved to Monroe Co. MS ( (Chickasaw Cession). Some Crosby history shows Sarah Jeter Crosby died in Monroe Co MS 1840.
.....These two counties Chiskasaw (Pricilla) and Monroe (Sarah) touch. So two sister could be just a short distance from each other.
There are no other Moseley's in Chickasaw Co, at that time, that I can find. My theory is that elderly Pricilla was with Margaret and her family.
.....Margaret was a young widow with nine Able Hill ( died about 1819) children. 1830 Edgefield Census has Margaret Hill , head of household with an elderly woman living with her. I think this is Pricilla. So what do I know. it just all fits together like puzzle pieces.
Who is this Pricilla Moseley who died in Chickasaw Co, Ms in 1849.
.....Another clue for me is : Margaret Hill ( died 1872 in her 90th year) is buried in Pleasant Grove Cemetery in Chickasaw Co. in the OLD SECTION with very few graves. Near Margaret's grave is a Natural iron marker with M. That gives me goose bumps. I feel like these people want to be found.
.....I descend from Margaret Moseley and Abel Hill's daughter Pricilla who married Clement Jennings. This OLD Cemetery has the Jennings graves and others who came from Edgefield Co. SC. I truly believe that Margaret Moseley brought her mother with her.
.....I hope you can make some since out of this.
.....Do you descend from William Jeter?
Thanks Jane.

http://familytreemaker.genealogy.com/users/s/a/n/Charles-L-Sanders/WEBSITE-0001/UHP-0640.html claims Edward is the son of Mildred Haydon and Benjamin Leavell, who DO have a son named Edward, but I have him married to Sarah Waite. Did he have two wives, or is this a mistaken link?There is an Ed Leavell married to a Rosamund Wiatt, living in the Gallatin County, Illinois, area. Are they the same man? Are Rosamund and Sallie related? Rosamund has a sister named Sarah, but Sarah married William Bussell. Still, Waite and Wiatt are awfully close, and our ancestors were lousy spellers, and the Gallatin Leavells include the use of "Haydon" as a middle name...I'm merging them, pending proof against it.

Ginger Jamerson, 4/2/03, GenForum:
I have a copy of a will dated 1801 of a John Wait of Madison County, VA in which he states that James Leavell married his daughter Sarah. I keep seeing this listing for Sallie Waite marrying Edward Leavell and was wondering if they're two different sets of people or if there is any documentation for Sallie Waite marrying Edward. Thanks for any help you can give.

Larry Sanders says she died 17 Mar 1847 Hardin Co, IL

Hello Jane
My ggg grandfather Jacob Andrew Wiatt's father was James Wiatt from Prince William county, Virginia. I suspect that Jacob was Rosamond's brother. Jacob also had a sister, Sarah. She may be the Sarah Wiatt who married William Bussell. Do you have anymore information on any one of these people, I'm trying to piece together the family before 1800. Does anyone know who was Rosamond's mother? When and where did James Wiatt pass away? A few tidbits of information suggest that Rosamond's mother may have been a Sarah or Rosamond Minitree, and that James may have died in Gloucester County, Virginia, in 1823. Unfortunately I've hit a wall here and I'm hoping that someone can help me break through.
Any bit of information that you might have would be great.
thanks

In Reply to: Re: William Bell/Fanny Boston of Orange Co. by Cathy Honan
I am interested in the Captain John Bell and Elizabeth Kirtley line. Do you have information on John Bell. My line goes to Frances Kirtley Bell who married Lewis Livingstone Leavell. Lewis was born in 1872. I do not have any dates for Frances Kirtley Bell. Their son (my ggg-grandfather) was Leonidas W. Leavell (b. 12-21-1821 in Todd County, KY) married to Harriet D. Winn. Also within that line is the name St. Clair (Sinclair). I believe it to come from the Kirtely line. Can you help?

History of Todd County, Kentucky
Courts and Bar of Todd County, Kentucky
.....Succeeding him (Finis McLean) at the head of the profession here was IF. M. Bristow (in 1837). He came to the bar in 1826, after receiving a thorough education in the classics as well as English. He was well read in the law and rapidly acquired a large and lucrative practice. His great claim upon the respect and confidence of the people was the sterling uprightness of his character . This fact made him also a great power with a jury. Without eloquence or any attempt at rhetoric or meretricious accomplishment he became known as a great advocate. Before a jury he was always plausible and fair, and his earnestness did the rest. He was a lawyer of large resource, and while at first sight he was sometimes undervalued, he never failed to maintain the control of his case and rise equal to any emergency that presented itself. He " never failed," in the language of one who often met with him at the bar. Mr. Bristow was a great admirer of Burns, and it is said in a case where he was prosecuting certain patrollers for the unwarranted punishment of a Negro, that he quoted " The Cotter's Saturday Night " in full to the jury, and with such effect that in spite of natural prejudices they gave his client a verdict.
.....In the celebrated Lycurgus Leavell case, when some of the strongest legal talent of this part of the State was arrayed against him, and after several eloquent speeches the opposing counsel were confident they " had the jury," one of that counsel relates: " Bristow hung the jury with a quotation from St. Paul," and it may be added eventually won the case. Mr. Bristow was elected to the lower House of the Legislature in 1831; to the State Senate in 1846; as member of the Constitutional Convention in 1849; in 1853 was elected to Congress for the unexpired term of Presley Ewing; and in 1859 was elected to. the Thirty-sixth Congress. Few lawyers in southern Kentucky had more followers in his profession, several of the present bar having received their early legal instructions in his office. He died in 1864 at Elkton.
.....Perhaps no lawyer at the Todd County bar to-day finds the income from his practice sufficient for his ordinary expenses; all have business of quite as profitable a character in addition to their profession. The situation is strongly suggestive of that warning of the latter day, mentioned by Holmes: "When lawyers take (of necessity) what they would give." There have been but few cases, if any, in the county that have been even a "nine days' wonder." The contest over the will of Lycurgus Leavell, in which certain slaves were freed, and his property, amounting to some $150,000 bequeathed-to his children by slave women, is perhaps the most celebrated. His relatives contested the will upon the remarkable ground that the testator was too morally depraved to make a proper and legal will. If such a plea is good in law, the evidence went very far to show the incompetency of the deceased, but after being tossed about in the courts for some twenty years, the will was sustained. A' large part of the property was dissipated, however, by the administrator, and in the final settlement his securities suffered heavily. The Graves estate of some $75,000 was another case that involved considerable controversy and expense.

Per a Todd Co. history: "A prosperous Trenton bachelor farmer, his contested will generated litigation in Todd court for 20 years. He inherited and lived in the old Leavell homeplace in Trenton."

44. EZEKIEL CLAY LEAVELL (JOHN L., EDWARD, EDWARD, ? LAVELLE) was born May 05, 1773 in New Castle, Mason, Kentucky, USA, and died December 08, 1855 in Hagerstown, Henry, Indiana, USA. He married NANCY L. WOOD August 02, 1808 in Mason County, Kentucky, USA, daughter of BENJAMIN WOOD and RUTH ?. She was born December 20, 1789 in Kentucky, USA, and died January 06, 1856 in Henry County, Indiana, USA.

Notes for EZEKIEL CLAY LEAVELL:
Ezekial settled 8 miles southeast of Newcastle, Henry, Indiana. He was a land commissioner, the second sheriff of Henry Co. (from 1816-1818), a member of the Dunkard Church and in the Nettle Creek Church of the Brethern, one mile west of Hagerstown.

"New Castle [is a] city, seat (1822) of Henry county, eastern Indiana, U.S. It lies along the Blue River, 50 miles (80 km) east of Indianapolis. Founded in 1819 and named by Ezekiel Leavell for his hometown in Kentucky, it was incorporated in 1839. In 1900 a decade of expansion began when automobile and piano manufacturing, as well as other industries, were started there. During this same period, the large-scale commercial growing of roses was developed. New Castle's diversified manufactures now include automobile parts and steel products. A nearby farm, now a state memorial, was the birthplace (1867) of aviation pioneer Wilbur Wright. Pop. (1990) 17,753."--from ENCYCLOPEDIA BRITTANICA on-line

Liberty Township
.....Liberty Township is a large, wealthy and prosperous portion of Herny County. Its main industry is agriculture, and the land is well suited to a variety of crops. The farms and improvements will compare favorably with other portions of the county. The people are intelligent and thrifty. The township is watereed by Flatrock and Symon's creeks and their tributaries. The surface is generally level. Liberty Township was formed by order of the county commissioners, Feb. 12, 1823, and an election ordered to be held at the house of Ezekiel Leavell on the first Saturday in May, Leavell to serve as inspector.

Liberty Township, Henry Co. IN ( http://www.hcgs.net/libertytwp.html )
The eastern, southwestern and northwestern portions of the township were first settled. The eastern settlement around what was known as Chicago and south formed the northern part of the celebrated Levell Neighborhood, and the southern part being around Jamestown. In the neighborhood John Levell and Ezekial Levell settled, the Levell neighborhood had the distinction for many years of furnishing nearly all the county officers. Of the first seventeen persons who entered land August 16, 1821, fifteen of these were around Chicago and south of it. They were William Roe, Jeremiah Hadley, Kincher Johnson, Moses Robertson, Jeramiah Strode, John Beard, William Bell, David Brown, Joshua Hardman, Jesse Martindale, Thomas Ralston, John Levell, George Handley, Thomas Robson and Samuel Southran...Ezekial Levell was the agent of Henry county and afterward sheriff.

At April 1827 term of court defendants pleaded not guilty. Their defense was that in Nov. 1825 a court of assessment for the 48th Regiment of Indiana Militia held at the house of Jeremiah Meek with Thomas R. Stanford as judge advocate and Mathew McKinney as provost marshal fined Lewelling for nonperformance of militia duty in 1825, "the said plaintiff professing to be conscientiously scrupulous of bearing arms." In Dec. 1825, it imposed fine of $2.50. On Jan. 2, 1826, they made a list of fines to be collected, issued by Elijah Long, senior officer, and delegated to Sheriff Jesse H. Healey, who did not collect them. Then fines turned over to Leavell, who seized the horse and sold it at auction on Jan. 1, 1827, for $23.01. Leavell returned to Lewelling $18.07 ¾, which Lewelling refused to accept. Court found for defendants. Lewelling appealed to the Indiana Supreme Court with William Butler as his security. Supreme Court reversed on technicality involving identification of the sheriff and remanded back to Henry County to new trial. Court finds for defendants.

He married CYNTHIA HEDGES May 07, 1822 in Walnut Township, Pickaway County, OH, daughter of JOSHUA HEDGES and MARY VINSONHALER. She was born November 28, 1791 in Berkely County, Virginia, USA, and died July 18, 1834 in Fayette County, Ohio, USA. (Or did she die 7 May 1822 in Pickaway Co.?)

Notes for JOHN P. LEAVELL:

HISTORY OF FAYETTE CO., by R. S. Dills (1881), p. 922:
.....John Leavell was born in Virginia, and served seven years in the Resolutionary War. In 1786 he started, with his family, from Culpeper County to remove to Kentucky, but stopped in Greenbrier County, where, in the winter of 1786/87, he died, and his widow, in the spring of 1787, came on to Morrison's Station, Kentucky, where her boys erected a log cabin, into which they removed. Shoftly after this, the unfortunate lady was watching her elder son cutting down a tree, and imagining it would reach the cabin, in her excitement, ran under the tree, and was killed.
.....There were eleven children: Gabriel, Ezekial, John, Robert, Benjamin, Elizabeth, Hannah, Malinda, Sallie, Nancy, and another whose name we have been unable to obtain, who scattered at the death of their mother and began caring for themselves. Gabriel was killed at the defeat of St. Clair, in 1791, and Ezekiel and Robert settled in Henry County, Indiana.
.....John, our subject, was born in Culpepper County, Virginia, December 27, 1774, and came from Kentucky to Ross County, Ohio, and squatted on congress land, on the east side of the Scioto, at the mouth of Scioto Creek, a short distance above Chillicothe, where he had expected to purchase congress land, but, in the interest of speculators, these lands were offered for sale in such large lots only, that he was unable to buy, and he only remained one year, coming then to near Willisport, Pickaway County, stopping with Moses Clavin, whose house he made his home for twenty-one years, in the meantime, dealing in stock, bought on Green River, Kentucky, and which he grazed in the forest of Pickaway, and the northeastern part of Fayette Counties. He also served as tax collector of Ross, from 1816 to 1820. In 1816, he purchases about one hundred acres of land of Jesse McKay, on Duff's Fork, on which his son, Benjamin, now resides. In 1822, he married Cynthia, daughter of Joshua Hedges and Mary Vincewhellar, of Pickaway County, by whom he had nine children. At his death, which occurred in August, 1854, he owned about one thousand acres of land. His wife died in July, 1834.
John Leavell bought about 100 acres in 1816 on Duff's Fork fairly near Mt. Sterling, OH.

Notes for HANNAH ELIZABETH LEAVELL: Hannah ran 550 acres of land after Nancy gave it to her in 1888. Burial: old Leavell cemetery on Post Rd. in Madison Twp., Fayette, Ohio, USA. Was living with brother Benjamin in 1860 and 1870 census.
HISTORY OF FAYETTE CO., by R. S. Dills (1881), pp. 605-6 .....Miss Hannah E. Leavell. This work would fail in its idea of placing before its readers and patrons in Fayette County the life history of its noted men and women, were we to omit the name of Miss Leavell, who is a native of Madison Township. She is at present superintending the operation of five hundred and fifty acres of land, a portion of which is the property of her sister in St. Louis. She is gifted with physical and intellectual activity, decision of purpose and calm judgement, which traits have been very useful to her in the conduct of her affairs. .....Miss Leavell was born on the place where she is at present residing, and is the daughter of Majr. John and Cynthia A. (Hedges) Leavell. Her father was born in Culpeper County, Va., in 1775, and came to Ohio when a lady of eight or nine years from Kentucky, whither they had removed. He received his title of Major in the War of 1812, and was present at the battle of St. Clair, where his brother Gabriel was killed. The parents of our subject were married in Pickaway County, this State, and at the time of his decease in 1854, Mr. Leavell owned nearly one thousand acres of land in Madison Township, Fayette County. The children comprised in the parental family were Mary Ann, who married William Clarriage; Cornelius G., who resides in Madison Township; John was next in order of birth; Benjamin F. was the fourth child; William C. died in infancy; Nancy M. is a practicing physician and makes her home in St. Louis; and Hannah E., who is the youngest of the family. .....The original of this sketch received a common-school education, and made her home with friends in Pickaway County for six years after her mother's decease, which occurred in 1834. She now cultivates her large estate in a most intelligent and profitable manner, having had charge of the same since 1888. Possessing marked force of character and unswerving honesty, no resident of the county enjoys greater esteem than she and no one has proved to be more thoroughly reliable and trustworthy.
46. ROBERT LEAVELL (JOHN L., EDWARD, EDWARD, ? LAVELLE) was born 1776. He married ELIZABETH HARDEN in 1788, Culpeper County, Virginia, USA, per Ancestry.com. Genealogical and Historical Notes on Culpeper County, Virginia [database on-line]. Provo, UT, USA: Ancestry.com Operations Inc, 2002. Robert is said to have served in the Revolutionary War, which is impossible, given that date of birth!

Child of ROBERT LEAVELL and ELIZABETH HARDEN is:

47. BENJAMIN LEAVELL (JOHN L., EDWARD, EDWARD, ? LAVELLE) was born July 17, 1781 in Culpeper County, Virginia, USA, and died 1860 in Miami County, Ohio, USA. He married MARTHA MCCORKLE July 14, 1807 in Miami County, Ohio, USA, daughter of JOSEPH MCCORKLE and MARGARET SNODDY. She was born February 22, 1788 in Fayette County, Kentucky, USA, and died March 13, 1868 in Miami County, Ohio, USA.

Notes for BENJAMIN LEAVELL:
Defiance, Ohio, was laid out in November of 1822 by Benjamin Leavell and Horatio G. Phillips. Ben became a resident and was its innkeeper; he also kept the first store for white settlers, located on the banks of the Maumee, at the foot of Jefferson Street. His home was the first frame building in the village, a 1 1/2 story built in December 1822 on the NW corner of Jefferson & Water St. It was opposite the fort grounds. He was elected commissioner in 1824. The court granted him license to vend merchandise at his home in Defiance for one year on 8 May 1824 for $10 fee. He resigned by October 1825, and returned with his family to Piqua, Ohio. --from HISTORY OF DEFIANCE COUNTY, OHIO, containing a history of the county; its townships, towns, etc.; military record; portraits of early settlers and prominent men; farm view; personal reminisences, etc. (1883) Chicago: Warner, Beers & Co.

He was the first millwright in Miami County. By 1808, his was one of seven log houses in Miami County on Water Street, east of the canal. A "B. Level" laid out Defiance, the county seat of Defiance County, in 1822.

"Benjamin Leavell was a carpenter by trade, and did most of the building of the log cabins of the new town. He was born July 17, 1781, in Culpepper County, Virginia, and came to Piqua in 1805 where he built a cabin on what is now the south-west corner of Main and Water streets. In the fall of 1807, he married Martha McCorkle, whose father and family had located just below town in 1805. This is said to have been the first wedding in Miami County. He was the first treasurer of Washington Township, and also served as Quartermaster in the war of 1812. In 1825 he moved to Williams County, where in connection with H. G. Philips, of Dayton, established the town of Defiance. He was one of the Associate Judges of Williams County for several years, and also laid out the town of Napoleon. In 1831 he came back to Piqua and built a tavern on the east side of Main street, between Greene and North. After several years of this business he retired and built a fine residence on Wayne street afterward owned by Dr. W. S. Parker. Here he died in 1860, honored and loved by the citizens of the whole town."--THE FIRST CENTURY OF PIQUA, OHIO, page 16

"Leavell's Inn was on the east side of Main, about half way between Greene and North, and was built by Benj. Leavell in 1831."--THE FIRST CENTURY OF PIQUA, OHIO, page 220.

48. EDWARD LEVELL (JOHN L., EDWARD, EDWARD, ? LAVELLE) was born 1804 in Winchester, Frederick, Virginia, USA, and died 1883. He married ANNA FREEMAN Abt. 1825. She was born September 08, 1808 in Pennsylvania, USA, and died July 02, 1881 in Palatine, Marion County, WVA, USA. More About EDWARD LEAVELL: Burial: Maple Grove Cemetery, Marion Co. WVA, USA. Sources include Ballard-Hinkle Family Tree at ancestry.com. Some online trees give Edward's parents as George LeVelle and Jane Taylor, but they seem to be following the lead of the infamous Horn Papers fraud. While it's theoretically possible that Horn mixed real historical data with his imaginary people, it's not likely.

She was born November 1781 in Garrard County, Kentucky, USA, and died November 21, 1841 in Garrard County, Kentucky, USA.

Notes for BENJAMIN LEAVELL:
Benjamin was a farmer and slaveholder.

(HISTORY OF GARRARD COUNTY, copyright 1947 by Forrest Calico)
L.Y. Leavell, born in 1817, was a successful farmer. He assisted in organizing the National Bank and was its president from 1870 to 1872. He was a son of Benjamin and Isabella (Miller) Leavell. His father Benjamin was born in Virginia in 1774, the son of Edward and Elizabeth (Hawkins) Leavell, who were early pioneers in Garrard. Edward Leavell was a Revolutionary soldier. Isabelle Leavell was the daughter of William Miller, who made the first survey in Garrard near Paint Lick in 1776. There she was born in 1781 in the fort. Her father was with the Boone party which marked the trail from Cumberland Gap to Boonesboro in 1775, and with the group who built Twetty's Fort five miles from Richmond in the direction of Big Hill where two of the party were killed. His daughter was one of the first children born in Kentucky.

Notes for ISABELLA MILLER:

The following article came from the August 17, 1939 edition of "The Central Record" of Lancaster Kentucky. It was written by Anne Burnside Brown - a noted Kentucky genealogist and historian. Although the interview which follows between William Miller and his grandson is fictional, the people, places and stories are all based on fact. Nancy Yancey, the wife of Lieut Col. William Miller, is thought to be a possible daughter of John & Mary Laton Yancey of Culpeper County, Virginia. Although the article is based on facts, it has been discovered that a few dates and places, among other things, have been proven to be inaccurate - and one should avoid using this document as proof for any genealogical information without other supporting evidence.
.....Ancestry: Nancy Yancey, was the daughter of John Yancey, son of Lewis Davis Yancey.


"AN EARLY FORT, AND THOSE WHO LIVED WITHIN"
....."Seated in front of a log fire, were grandfather and grandson. These two were chatting over the current happenings of yesteryears that had flowed into the present.
.....The younger man was Isaac Newton Brown, who later became illustrious as Commander Brown of Ram, Arkansas, before Vicksburg in 1862.
.....The older man was Lieut. Col. William Miller, who had served his country gallantly during the trying times with the Indians and British, and helped to establish this commonwealth. He was now enjoying the peace and memories that comes with old age.
....."Tell me", asked his interested grandson, "something of your life and that of your family in Kentucky during the pioneer days".
....."I was born in Botetourt Co., Va in 1747" replied the Colonel, settling down for a long fireside story. " A vigorous man, eager for adventure, and to do my share in conquering, and settling this wilderness".
....."Among all my experiences, there are two which I value most. When the Virginia Legislature provided for Col. Daniel Boone to mark a trace from Virginia to Boonesborough, Kentucky. It was my privilege to join this party that helped to mark the trace for guiding the future citizens of this state over Cumberland Gap, and into these fortifications, that were being erected for their protection. Our company was joined by Captain William Twetty and his men; making thirty in all. Col. Richard Calloway and John Kennedy were in our party.
....."the company worked unmolested until we reached the headwaters of Silver Creek, when we were attacked by Indians. Captain Twetty and his negro servant were killed, and Felix Walker seriously injured. When we reached Taylor's Fork of Silver Creek we were again attacked, and one more of our number killed.
....."When Col. Boone was ready to bring his wife and daughter to Kentucky I was one of the guards who helped to escort them. Mrs. Boone was the first white woman to step on Kentucky soil after the immigration began, or to stand on the banks of Kentucky River, of which Col. Boone was very proud.
....."In 1776 I chose a site for a settlement on Paint Lick Creek, and raised a crop of corn. This was one of the famous salt licks and there was an abundance of cane. The Indians painted their signs along the creek banks. For this reason the two primitive words, paint and lick were combined to name this water course and settlement.
....."Here I built a log fort and stockade, known as Fort Paint Lick. I was joined by many of the early settlers who resided there until it became safe to establish separate homes for themselves. Among these were Alexander Denny, William Champ, George Adams and others.
....."I fought in the Northern Campaign in 1774-75. One of my worse battles was that of Little Mountain, in which Captain Estill was defeated by the Wyandotte Indians. The Indians outnumbered us".
"Grandfather", interrupted Isaac Newton Brown, "Some day I would like to be decorated for bravery like you have been."
....."I believe I can count on my grandson never to show the white feather if the occasion arises," said William Miller, as he continued with his story.
....."In 1780 I went back to Virginia, Abingdon, and there claimed a pretty girl of Welsh parentage. She is your grandmother, Nancy Yancey, who was born in Bowling Green, Va in 1760. A brave girl who was wiling to face the hardships of this wilderness with me.
....."Isabella was our first child, and first born in the fort in 1781. As you know, we had five daughters and no sons. Isabella first married Alexander Adams, and had two sons. After his death she married Benjamin Leavell. Cynthiana married John Snoddy. Susannah married Rev. Samuel Brown (your parents) and your father performed a great many marriage ceremonies in the early days. Margaret first married William McLean of Middle Tennessee. After his death she and a negro slave rode horseback from Tennessee and carried her five children to my home. Her daughter, Nancy McLean, married Samuel Campbell. Margaret married the second time, George Denny. They had two children, twins, Margaret and George. Margaret married Rice Woods. My other daughter, Betsy, died at the age of four.
....."after a time I abandoned the stockade for this comfortable log house where Margaret resides. George Denny, son of Margaret, and his wife, Elizabeth Faulkner Denny, built the colonial red brick house near the log one that commands a view of this famous creek.
....."I don't believe that I told you that the fort was built over a cave-like spring, which you entered by steps leading down into it.
....."The Indians were a great annoyance to the settlers. There were frequent battles between Paint Lick Creek and Back Creek. It has been said that the Indians were often driven back and made to retreat at Back Creek and that is how it got its name.
....."Jenny, one of the Adams girls, was killed by Thunder, and Indian Chief, in 1791. She lies in the first marked grave in the fort cemetery.
....."William Mitchell, who lived nearby, went with his wife and children to visit a neighbor. On their return, when they approached their cabin, they observed the Indians at a distance fleeing in the direction of the knobs.
....."They had ripped up the feather beds, scattered the feathers, and used the sacks. They were taking as much of the household and kitchen furniture as they could carry. Two horses had been left in a pen, which the Indians tried to secure, but they were wild and had escaped to the woods. Isabella Leavell's daughter, Betsy, married a son of William Mitchell.
....."I have had a large acreage of bounty warrants and tried to divide liberally with my slaves, the annual products of the farm, cultivated by their labor. I am a Calvinist by belief. I have much to be thankful for. Now I am growing old, yet I have retained my physical and mental faculties. Of all my descendants each are without defect of body or mind, and of good standing in their communities.
[DJY - Boonesborough, mentioned in this article, was established by Daniel Boone and others and was the second permanent settlement in Kentucky. Fort Paint Lick was in what is now, Garrard County, Kentucky. The grave markers for William and Nancy are still there in the Paint Lick Cemetery. From their headstones: "William Miller was born the 30th of March in the year of our Lord 1747. Departed this life Aug 31 1841. Settled Paint Lick '76" and "Nancy Yancy Miller was born the 3rd of Jan in the year of Our Lord 1761. Departed this life Oct 23 1837."]

51. NANCY LEAVELL (EDWARD, EDWARD, EDWARD, ? LAVELLE) was born September 24, 1777 in Virginia, USA, and died 1831 in Chariton County, Missouri, USA. She married (1) THOMAS COLEMAN Abt. 1790. He died September 11, 1811 in Allen, Kentucky. She married (2) GIDEON GOOCH October 18, 1796 in Granville, North Carolina, USA, son of GIDEON GOOCH and MARY MCGEHEE. He was born June 18, 1779 in Goochland County, Virginia, USA, and died 1850 in Grundy County, Missouri, USA.

Notes for GIDEON GOOCH:
".....My ancestor was also Claiborne Gooch married to Mildred Thomas or Thomas. My research takes me to Peter Gouge b abt 1500 England. Rowland Gooch,son of Claiborne Gooch B abt 1724, M Unity West; their son Gideon Gooch,married Nancy Leavell and their daughter Mary Ann Gooch M Elijah Embry, my great-great grandparents. I would love to share any information re Claiborne's Gooch's and compare.
".....The parents of Gideon Gooch husband of Nancy Leavell according to my research were Rowland Gooch and Unity West. (Unity West was a descendent of Lord De-La-Warr, Thomas West ist Gov. of Va.) Her parents were Nathanial West and Martha Woodard. If my research is correct,Rowland Gooch was the son of Claiborne Gooch and Mildred Thimpson. They lived in King Wm Co. Virginia, Claiborne moved with his family to Granville Co N.C. Claiborne Gooch was the son of William Gooch and Ursula Claiborne. Her family were early prominent pilgrims in America. If you care to E- mail me at jerfay at terraworld.net, I can give you further informationregarding the Gooch and Claiborne and West families back to early England. Including the information that Lord De-La Warr was responsible for Pocahantas visiting England. Lord De-la-Warr's wife was her sponsor. This information you can get from history books. After many years of research I am only to well aware that I may have an error in my data, however I have researched as thoroughly as possible, given the number of Gooch descendents.Another note: the Gooch family in England was related to the George Washington family.Washington's and Gooch's came to America and settled together."

Notes for NANCY H. BADGETT:
There was a newspaper article about "Auburn In The Long Ago" which is on "Uncle Winkfield Hall" and mentions Wink, his sons Monroe and Scott, his black horse Dan, and Miss Nan. It quotes an exchange between Nan and Wink during the courtship. She remarked to him "Mr. Hall, you are no spring chicken." He replied "I God, madam, you ain't no fillie." I think the article was published about Sept. 3 1982.

History of Ellis County, pub. first in 1892; republished in 1972 by the Ellis Co. Historical Museum with additions, p. 731. It is no longer in print. This was in the additions at the end of the book, so evidently someone was around to furnish this material for publication at that time. It isn't too long, but has a good bit of information.
....."James H. (Hans) Smith was born September 16, 1818, in Mercer County, Kentucky, the son of James T. and Mahulda Smith. On January 3, 1843, he married Miss Nancy Black, the daughter of John and Catherine Black.
....."Catherine Black was the daughter of Edward and Elizabeth (Hawkins) Leavell. She rode through Cumberland Gap on horseback as a girl. Her grandfather, Nathan Hawkins, also made the arduous journey from Spotsylvania County, Virginia, to Garrard County, Kentucky. The Hawkins and Leavells were prominent in the development of Garrard County. Catherine Black made another long journey when, at the age of ninety-one, she moved to Ellis County, Texas, with her daughers, Mrs. James Smith and Mrs. William burford. Mrs. Black died at the age of ninety-eight in 1882 and is buried in Waxahachie.
.....James and Nancy Smith were both reared in Mercer County, Kentucky, and he farmed for many years in Mercer County, Kentucky. They were members of the Baptist Church.
....."They moved to Ellis County in 1875, settling near Boyce. Their children were Henry C., Sarah Belle, Hannah McKee, Susan A., James Y., William P., Catherine A. and John L."

56. EDWARD M. LEAVELL (EDWARD, EDWARD, EDWARD, ? LAVELLE) was born 1788. He married RHODA SALLEE December 23, 1812 in Madison County, Kentucky, USA, daughter of HENRY SALLEE and MARTHA BONDURANT. She was born Abt. 1795.

Notes for EDWARD M. LEAVELL:
The bond date for their marriage was 23 Dec. 1812. Edward moved from Garrard Co., Ky. to Montgomery Co., Mo. in 1816. On 9 January 1819 he had a land grant in Montgomery County, Missouri. This family was listed on page 203 of the 1840 census for Montgomery Co. Rhoda is listed in the 10-years-younger bracket.

Notes for RHODA SALLEE:
http://www.usgennet.org/usa/mo/topic/afro-amer/upperla/pafg164.htm#4198 claims the Edward Leavell whom Rhoda Sallee married was Edward, b. 1823, son of Rebecca Stinson and James Leavell. Ages don't match, though--they couldn't have parented Atheline, and he would have been much younger than Rhoda.

Children of EDWARD LEAVELL and RHODA SALLEE are:

57. MILDRED LEAVELL (EDWARD, EDWARD, EDWARD, ? LAVELLE) was born 1790. She married NICHOLAS H. STEPHENSON October 15, 1816 in Garrard County, Kentucky, USA, son of THOMAS STEPHENSON and MARY HAWKINS.

Notes for MILDRED LEAVELL:
Per Ron Phillips on the Stephenson Message Board, March 17, 2006 :

Ref. A History of Pioneer Families of Missouri by Bryan and Rose, Page 180 states:
"Mary I. Pitman married Thomas D. Stephenson, of Kentucky."
Page 276 states:
"Mildred, daughter of Edward Leavell, Sr., married Nicholas H. Stephenson, of Kentucky, and is now a widow in her 86th year. Mr. Stephenson and his family started to Missouri in 1813, on horseback, but after crossing the Ohio river they purchased a wagon and traveled in that some distance, where the roads became so bad that they could use it no longer. They then sold the wagon and performed the rest of the journey on horseback, arriving in St. Charles county in 1814, having been on the road one year. Mr. Stephenson settled first in Howell's Prairie, where he built a tanyard, and in 1818 he removed to Montgomery county. He had two children, James and Mildred A. --Thomas D. Stephenson, a brother of Nicholas, settled in Howell's Prairie, St. Charles county, where he died. He was a County Judge and Justice of the Peace for some time, and was an influential citizen."
.....This clearly shows the relationship between these two brothers! Interestingly, the 1935 facsimile of the 1885 book doesn't cross-reference Thomas D. to page 276 and is possibly why others have never noted this relationship.
.....What is even more interesting is that the John Pitman Stephenson, son of Thomas D. and Mary Irvine Pitman Stephenson married Margaret Leavell, daughter of James and Rebecca Stimpson Leavell and James Leavell's parents were Edward and Elizabeth Hawkins Leavell! While not blood related, the families obviously maintained close contact!
Note that Madison Co. was later made into Garrard Co, KY

Hello, Jane....
...I read your Leavell family file on the Internet with great interest. I wondered if you had any additional information about the wills of Elizabeth Stephenson, Edward Stephenson, Nathan Hawkins and Daniel Maupin?
...I am especially interested in knowing who this Elizabeth Stephenson was married to, and if Nathan Hawkins is the father of Mary Hawkins, who married Thomas Stephenson.
...Do you have the copies of the complete wills? If so where did you get them? The only ones that I can find are extractions.
...I would sincerely appreciate learning about anything that you may have in your files about these Stephensons, as I believe that we are related to Thomas and Mary Hawkins Stephenson.
Thank you, very much..

"Dave Dougherty"
Dear Ms. Leavell,
Came upon your posting of the Leavell genealogy the other & noted with interest the notes on John Alsop & Mary Leavell. I come from this line. The posting by Ben Warthen is substantially in error, and I can give you the complete genealogy from John Alsop & Mary Leavell. Mr. Warthen, a noted attorney in Virginia, was descended from William Alsop, five generations above the last Alsop (Olive Alsop Swanson) to own La Vue, the family plantation in Spotsylvania County, and is my 6th cousin, twice removed. Olive had no less than one younger sister and seven 1st cousins, who had 15 children among them who stood in line to inherit La Vue. There is a substantial amount of legal chicanery involved in disinheriting the remaining Alsops & the 1st cousins of Olive, and Ben Warthen received the largest inheritance given to a private individual when Herman Swanson, Olive's husband, died. Supposedly Olive died intestate, but the family all believed that was a fraud perpetrated by Swanson & his attorney to gain control of the estate. Herman Swanson was a con-man, who lived off of Alsop money from 1923 to 1972, not even maintaining the estate properly as he was charged to do.
At any rate, I can set the record straight if you would like me to furnish the materials for inclusion in your very fine work.
Sincerely,
Dave Dougherty

Notes for JOHN ALSOP:
George Alsope from Derbyshire
---------
The origin of this family is believed to be George Alsop who, with his brother, John, was transported to the Virginia Colony in 1664 from Chesterfield Parish, Derbyshire, England. The Crown in those times sent petty criminals to the Colonies; a practice they continued in Australia after their loss of the Colonies. Both brothers were in Accomack County, VA in the mid 1689's, where John remained. George moved to King George County where his grandson, William, was found in 1726.

William was in Caroline County, VA when he died. His sons moved to Spotsylvania County where some remained until as late as 1920. Some of their descendants moved west to Kentucky, Indiana and Illinois. Their names appear in census lists as Alsop, Alsip, Alsup and Allsup.

Captain Jack served in the 30th Virginia Militia Regiment, Gray's Company in 1813, and as Captain in the 16th Regiment of Regulars (USA) commanded by Col Aylett Waller in 1814.

Subject: alsops/ Leavells/ Amiss
Posted by: Ben Warthen
.....Message: Unsure, but I may be as near as there is to family here. And I am distant my blood but was close to the last members of the family.
.....Family lived in severe but impressive brick mansion house, LaVue, on R F & P railroad in Spotsylvania Va.
.....1875ish a stepmother appears and young son split for Indiana.
.....Stepmother's only son, named for a Confedrate hero dies.
.....Stepmother dies. Meanwhile young son Thomas becomes M.D. in Indiana. marries Orpha Outhouse. (name americanized from german Athaus. God knows who talked them into that move) Dr. Thomas Alsop dies about time stepmother dies. Orpha and two daughters return to Va mansion in 1915.
.....Eldest daughter, Olive (Ca 1890-1968) marries automotive pioneer Herman Swanson (Franklin Aircooled Car) 1887-1972 live in house with Orpha who died about 1960 at great age.
.....Younger daughter Blanche 1899-1987 married C. Fred. Hansen, president of W T Grant and lived in NYC.
.....I have key to family mausaleum on LaVue.
.....There is a large family group of Leavell, Amiss. Holoways, who are kin but probably not descended from "Cpt. Jack" as they called him.
.....I do not think Blanche and Olive had Alsop first cousins but think they had Alsop second cousin some place. Blanch's will probated in NYC may mention cousins. Could try there.
.....Why do you seek info? Can I help further?

La Vue, the plantation and home renamed in 1990 as Prospect View Farm, was built in 1818 by George Alsop and his wife Lucy Harrison Strother for their oldest son John as a wedding present. John, usually called "Captain Jack" for his service in the War of 1812, married Mary Purvis Leavell, and the French name meaning "the View" honored her French Huguenot ancestry. The plantation comprised 1334 contigious acres in 1919, but with outlying properties "Hunters Lodge" and "Hickory Hill" the total came to about 1671 acres. It is believed there were no sales of acreage from Captain Jack's death to when Herman Swanson began selling off pieces after 1923.

Children of MARY LEAVELL and JOHN ALSOP are:
.....i.....GEORGE ALSOP, b. 1821.

Notes for GEORGE ALSOP:
George W. Alsop, born 10/6/1820, died prior to 1860 in the West, not known to have married. Some evidence suggests he left Virginia about 1840, worked for his uncle Jessie (son of grandfather George in MS, joined the Mississippi regiment of Jefferson Davis at the onset of the Mexican War in 1845, and was killed (or died) during the war, but this has not been confirmed.

239.....iii.....DR. WILLIAM SAMUEL ALSOP, b. September 04, 1825, Spotsylvania County, Virginia, USA; d. January 12, 1885, La Vue, Spotyslvania, Virginia, USA.
240.....iv.....JAMES ADDISON ALSOP, b. July 08, 1827, La Vue, Spotyslvania, Virginia; d. 1860, La Vue, Spotyslvania County, Virginia.
.....v.....THOMAS BURWELL ALSOP, b. February 24, 1831, Spotsylvania County, Virginia; d. Abt. 1893, Yazoo City, Mississippi; m. (1) EMMA DAY; m. (2) NANCY DAY, Abt. 1868.
Notes for THOMAS BURWELL ALSOP:
Thomas went to Missouri in 1849, moving to Yazoo City, Mississippi, 1850. He took over the 1600 acre plantation owned by his uncle Jesse (son of grandfather George) near Benton, MS, east of Yazoo City, and farmed until the Civil War. Served in the Engineering Corps under Brigader General Ledbetter at Mobile, Al. Thomas became a medical doctor after the war, marrying the Day sisters in turn. 2nd wife Emma married again after Thomas's death, and the Alsop plantation was inherited by the much younger 2nd husband upon Emma's death. According to family tradition, the young man married Emma to acquire the plantation. At any rate, the very extensive property passed out of the Alsop family. In spite of the distances, Thomas maintained close ties with the remainder of the Alsop family. All three of William Samuel Alsop's sons left their home at La Vue to join their Uncle Thomas in Mississippi before establishing careers in other localities. Only one had sons, George Rush Alsop, and he named his firstborn after Thomas. In the next generation, Emma Jane Sproat, a grandaughter of George Rush Alsop was named for Emma Day Alsop after her parents lived with Thomas and Emma in 1906-1907.

At Blakely, the home of Mrs. Washington in Jefferson County, he met the "very charming daughter" of Mr. John Yates and wrote in his diary, "Singular enough, that I should thus have met with one, in the good providence of God, when in the pursuit of health only, who has proven to be Heaven's best gift." They were married at Walnut Grove, home of her parents in Jefferson County, and he says "the bridal party left immediately for Harper's Ferry, to take the cars for Washington."

In October of 1853, Reverend Leavell took Bromfield Parish in the counties of Madison and Rappahannock, 40 miles apart, with his house smack in the middle. For six years he worked. "Looking back to my ministerial work in Madison and Rappahannock Counties, I regard it as the most laborious and painful of a long life of toil and hardships." When he was late returning on his horse Morgan, the children would grow restless and his wife would tell them, "It is not quite time yet, Morgan will bring Papa home soon." His family were living in the country around Harper's Ferry; reading about John Brown's raid in the ALEXANDRIA GAZETTE, he borrowed a six-shooter (Botts' Navy Pistol) from William Yancy of Madison County and made directly for his brother John's home in Amissville, planning to persuade him to go along. John was cleaning his gun and barricading his house. So William rode alone through the night to Front Royal, and he said, "Oh, what a night." He found his family safe, but decided to close his ministry in Madison and Rappahannock Counties, wanting in those unsettled times to be nearer to his own and his wife's families.

...Little Calamity, thanks for the information and alerts regarding Horn. Good to know.
...By chance, do you have any data on the Leavelles of Sussex Co., Va., by way of Petersburg, Va., by way of Fredericksburg, Va.? Andrew Leavelle was born in Fredericksburg to Burwell and Anna Leavelle and had moved to Petersburg by the 1840s. There, he wed Martha Weeks and by 1850 they were living a bit southward in Sussex Co., where they remained. Their children were Walter, Frances and Julia. Walter, Frances and Julia never married. Walter, however, had offspring with his negro servant, whom he acknowledged and he made some heirs in his will.
...I am following up on one of those "Indian princess" stories. The princess in question is a Native American named Mildred West. I'm trying to determine if she ended up in Sussex via Martha Weeks Leavelle as a servant to her family, or, through Andrew.
...Thanks in advance for reading and considering.
S. Doyle

74. HANNAH BELTON (SUSANNAH LEAVELL, ROBERT, EDWARD, ? LAVELLE) was born Abt. 1775 in Craven County, South Carolina, and died Aft. 1870 in Anderson County, South Carolina. She married JOHN PITTS Abt. 1796 in Newberry, South Carolina, son of HENRY PITTS and MARY BAGNALL. He was born in Nansemond County, Virginia, and died January 15, 1816 in Newberry, Newberry District, South Carolina.

Notes for HANNAH BELTON:
It may be that Hannah went to stay with her daughter Martha "Milly" Pitts Simmons in Cass County, Texas, and actually died there in 1878.

Most of the information on all the myriad descendants of Hannah came from the GenCircle trees of Leavie Irene Clark Bell.

John was recorded as a Justice of the peace in Newberry Dist. South Carolina. William Simpson and Drury were minors when their father died. John Pitts, esq. Brother Thomas was appointed as their guardian. Later the boys chose their older brother Cary as their guardian.

First, the parents are:
.....John Pitts, Esq. born 1763-1768 Most likely born in Nansemond Co., Va.
.....We had previously thought that he was born in Newberry Co., S.C. but recent letters that we obtained dated several years ago state that he was about two or three months old when his parents came to South Carolina. They may have gone to the Kershaw Dist. of South Carolina around Friend's Neck before going on to Newberry Co. His parents were Henry Pitts (born about 1729) and Mary (probably Dudgeon). John Pitts, Esq. died 15 Jan 1816 in Newberry Co., S.C. He married about 1796 to Hannah Belton. She is the daughter of William Belton and Susannah Leavell. Hannah was born 1775 in Craven Co., South Carolina. I am uncertain about where she died, some say Anderson Co., S.C. in 1878, but there is some indication that she went to stay with her daughter Martha "Milly" Pitts Simmons in Cass Co., Texas and died there. Their children are:

1. Carey Pitts born 17 Dec 1797 in Newberry Co., S. C. and died 18 Jul 1881 in Clarksville, Red River, Texas. He married Sarah Ann Lark on 22 Nov 1826 probably in Newberry Co., S.C.
2. Hiram Pitts born in Nov 1799 in Newberry Co., S. C. and died 9 jan 1895 in Pontotoc Co., Ms. He married Clarissa Calhoun about 1825 in South Carolina.
3. Reuben Golden Pitts was born 12 Dec 1801 in Newberry Co., S. C. and died 30 Nov 1854 in Newberry Co., S. C. He married Lura Burton in 1840 in South Carolina.
4. Tabitha (Bertha) Pitts was born about 1803 in Newberry Co., S.C. and she married Obediah Pitts. I don't have a death date for her, nor a wedding date.
5. John Belton Pitts was born 31 Jan 1806 in Newberry Co., S.C. and died 27 Sep 1862 in Anderson Co., South Carolina. He married Elizabeth Bolt in 1823 in Laurens Co., South Carolina
6. Martha (Milly) Pitts was born 26 Mar 1808 in Newberry Co., S. C. and died 18 Sep 1878 in Linden , Cass Co., Texas. She married Rev. David Monroe Simmons on 3 Aug 1823 in Laurens Co., South Carolina.
7. Starling Tucker Pitts was born 26 Apr 1810 in Newberry Co., S.C. and died in 1869 in Laurens Co., S.C. Buried at Friendship Presbyterian Church in Laurens Co., S.C. He married Charlotte Temperance Flowers on 1 Jul 1841 in Laurens Co., S.C.
8. William Simpson Pitts was born 22 Mar 1813 in Newberry Co., S.C.
I don't know his death date. The date that is often accepted as his, is the death date of his son William S. Pitts. He married Nancy Elizabeth Parks in South Carolina. She is the daughter of John Parks and Isabell.
9. NOTE THAT THIS ONE IS TENTATIVE NO PROOF Robert Pitts born about 1814 in Newberry Co., S.C.
10. Drury Joshua (or Jackson) Pitts born 1 May 1815 in Newberry Co., S. C. and died after 1870 in Pontotoc Co., Mississippi. He married Maria Moulten Dickson on 16 Nov 1843 in Pontotoc Co.

.....WILLIAM SIMPSON AND DRURY WERE MINORS WHEN THEIR FATHER DIED. JOHN PITTS, ESQ. BROTHER THOMAS WAS APPOINTED AS THEIR GUARDIAN. LATER THE BOYS CHOSE THEIR OLDER BROTHER CARY AS THEIR GUARDIAN. IF ROBERT PITTS WAS LIVING HE WOULD HAVE BEEN MENTIONED AS A MINOR ALSO, THEREFORE I AM UNCERTAIN ABOUT HIM. HE COULD HAVE EITHER DIED BEFORE HIS FATHER OR NOT BE A SON.
.....Are you related to William Simpson Pitts, if so, how?
.....William Simpson is my gr.gr. grandfather through the daughter Martha Isabel Pitts that married William A. Hurt.
I hope that this helps you.
Happy Hunting

From: "Shelia Chumley"
.....I recently came across your genealogy and find it very interesting. In Annals of Newberry by O'Neil he had a list of church persons. Robert Leavell Sr. and Robert Leavell Jr and wife Sarah. Also listed are the following Leavells, Elizabeth , James , John, and Peggy.
.....The Bush River Church Cemetery records on page 71 has a picture of Robert Leavell rock tombstone. The dates are born 15 sep 1718 and deceased the 21 June 1797 age 79. So this fellows father was born in the 1600's. Is this what you have for Robert Leavell Senior?
.....My David Monroe Simmons married Martha Pitts and her mother Hannah lived with them. David was born 1800 and left South Carolina in 1870. I think that Hannah would have been dead before David and Martha moved to Texas.
.....The other Leavells buried at this cemetery are John Roland and his wife Elizabeth J. and their children. John Leavell Esqr. died May 1826 in his 69 yr., seems John was married twice. Once to Frances who died Jan 15, 1857 age 77 yrs. and Margaret who died Nov 4, 1805, age 42 years. You most likely have this information.
.....All of the early genealogy handed down on the Simmons side gave the maiden name of Hannah Belton Pitts mother Susannah as Cole or Coates. I believe from studing the will of Henry Coates, Sr. that its the Pitts family who are related to the Coates.
.....John Cole, Sr., will signed 16 April 1808 and proved 2 Jan 1809 list witnesses as W. M. Belton, Martha Belton and Susannah Belton, Jr. John Coles wife was named Mary. His children were Mary Reeder, Caty Williams, Frances Pitts, Anne Mason, Sarah Williams, John Cole,Jr., deceased by 1809, James Cole and wife Tenor, William Cole, and Bettie who must have had two husbands, one a Reeder and the other a Cary.
.....The O'Neil book also states that Rev. Aaron Pinson (Pincent) will dated 1794, on file 1803, his wife was Elizabeth, children Moses, John, Isaac, Jemimah Hennery, and Mary Cole.
.....All of these families were so interconnected that I don't think I shall ever get them sorted as to whom belongs to whom.
.....Annuuls of Newberry,page 144. John Cole Sr., was the third paster of the Bush River Church. He had been pastor for 35 years when he died in 1816. So either O'Neil got his dates wrong or there was another John Cole, Sr. He says John Cole was called to preach in 1781.
.....I always thought the Beltons were Quakers, but I guess when the Quaker meeting was disbanded they became Baptist.
.....If you have a book for sale I am interested. I am having some trouble with roadrunner so if you cannot e-mail me back on first try please keep trying.

Parentage of Richard Wade Wallace of SC
Posted by: Joe Wallace, Ed.D. Date: January 10, 1999 at 15:43:28
Searching for siblings and parents of Richard Wade Wallace born 1786 in Pendleton District (Old 96th), South Carolina. Married Rhoda Ann Leavell in 1819, Georgia and received 80 acres of land in Tallapoosa County, Alabama, near New Site, Alabama for serving in War of 1812. Last known address Bluff Springs, Clay County, Alabama. Father said to be Richard Wallis b. abt. 1755. Any help would be appreciated.

George Ann Sims at gsims at cei.net
Richard Wade Wallace was married 2 times.
1st to Nancy Cross who had children: Jefferson J. born Oct. 10, 1812 Alpinem Chattanooga, GA and married Lydia Cross. Thomas M. born Sept. 20, 1814 and married Martha Porterfield. The tradition is that Nancy and other children died from food poisoning. No proof, only a family tradition. Richard's second wife,Rhoda Ann Leavell born Oct. 29, 1819 and died July 12, 1881 in Clay Co. AL. They had 11 children. No father listed for Richard but Rhoda's father was Edward Leavell. The info came from daughter of Ammon Y. Satterfield descendant of Richard through wife Rhoda and their child Elizabeth Caroline born in GA. and married Charles Hamilton Satterfield.
Hope this helps and I have the other children of Richard and Rhoda if you would like.

Hall Co. Marriage Records Before 1850

dperkins at oio.net November 17, 2000:
.....I have looked at your website and learned a lot. I had come across some of the Levell information on genforum. The interesting thing to me is that the Levells are on my fathers side of the family and my husband is a Perkins from the Baltimore family, Richard, etc. through Moses, William, Moses and the Alabama family so we have double connections.
.....Elizabeth Levell who married Robert Dowdy Inzer was married in Ga. as you know but came to Al. around 1855. I don't know exactly how many children she had. Two of their sons were killed in the Civil War. I have a copy of their marriage certificate.
.....The children that I found in the Al. Census were:
.....Robert Whitten Inzer, b 1828, who fathered 14 children by three wives. He was a preacher.
.....Mary Catherine, b. 1832, who married Thomas Mitchell Hazelwood b. 1830 m. 1850
.....Elizabeth L. b. 1840
.....Edward, b. 1842
.....Cynthia Matilda b. 1844, d. 1924. (This is my gg grandmother) who married William Alexander Weldon. They lived in Al. and had 11 children.
.....The Inzers from whom Robert is descended came from Baltimore to NC, Hall Co., GA, and on to Al. Some of them were very prominent, many were preachers, one became the Lt. Gov. of Al, several were lawyers. Later many of them moved on to Arkansas and further west.
.....After Elizabeth died, Robert married a Mrs. Elrod and I don't know anything about her except the marriage didn't work and she went to AR to live with some of her children. Robert D. lived with his oldest son, Robert Whitten Inzer, until his death.
.....If you would like more details, I would be happy to mail you a packet. I don't have all of my Inzer info on computer. There is a lot of interest in the Inzer family in St. Clair Co. Al. (Ashville is county seat) where they are making a museum out of the Inzer home there. Some of the descendants are members of DAR on Robert Dowdy Inzer's fathers military record.
.....For some reason I haven't followed up on the Hazelwood line, but it is available at the St. Clair Co. Museum. They have a web site.
.....Do keep in touch.
.....Doris Perkins

Of those five, one died during the conflict of unknown causes at a hospital in Savannah, Georgia, and two others were wounded, one losing a forearm, and one losing the thumb and third finger on his right hand.

June 20, 2006 from the late Nadine Wilson
Jane,
...That particular Leavell line is my own ancestry and I have spent the past 26 years doing research on them. Just this week I learned from a lady with whom I had been exchanging information on some families connected to my Wilson line the marriage date of Rachel Leavell (John W., Edward Franklin, Robert etc) to John Harris. This lady was going to be doing research in the Georgia Archives and asked if there was anything she could look for for me as a way of repaying me for the things I had sent to her, and she found it. They were married 05 July 1870 in Blount County, Alabama. since this was before the date of the 1870 Census I went to Ancestry Census database and was able to locate them and to my surprise they were living next door to her younger sister, Laura A. Leavell, and her husband, Josiah Anthony Gresham. I had fancied a romantic elopement but that was a little far-fetched given their ages; she was 40 and a spinster and he was 62 and widowed. By the 1880 census they were in Arkansas, where two of his sons and other members of her family had moved.
...There were four marriages between the children of John W. Leavell and members of the Josiah Gresham family. Josiah Anthony Gresham mentioned above was the nephew of three of the Greshams who married Leavell brothers and sisters and there were two other marriages between members of the families at other times. I often wondered how their children who were cousins ever kept their relationship straight. But it surely did simplify my research only having to deal with the two families in so many cases.

Per www.tappfamily.us
.....There are county records of Rebecca Tapp's marriage to Richard Leavell, brother of Margaret/Peggy Leavell. It is not 100% confirmed that Rebecca is the daughter of William Tapp who married Margaret/Peggy Leavell. It is not 100% confirmed that the Leavell daughters living with Rebecca's father are her daughters.
.....Two stories have been passed down: 1st that Rebecca Tapp died shortly after Leavell died in 1838 and 2nd that Rebecca Tapp remarried 1)Richard Barry/Berry in 1849 Chattooga County, GA and resided in Cherokee County AL and 2) John Lyda (after 1860). Harvey Tapp is living with the Barrys in the 1860 census. The Barry marriage has been transcribed as: Barry, Richard Sevell, Rebecca Levellor 16 Jan 1849
.....Richard and Rebecca Barry are in 1850-AL-Cherokee-Dist26-17 just a few houses before William Tapp age 22 (Nancy, Dorcas Anne, Sarah C., and Catherine Ford). In 1860-AL-Cherokee-3rd District-180, Harvey Tapp age 10 is living with Richard and Rebecca Berry near George M/W Tapp age 2 in household of Daniel Orear. Another Tapp connection is through the will of Richard Barry's uncle Thomas Moore where Vincent Tapp is a witness (Spartanburg County SC, 1817-1822).

Hi Jane,
I saw your post at genealogy.com and posted a message to you there this morning, but have since found this site. (I posted last night and it hadn't shown up this morning. The post this morning showed it as my first post and that's not right, so I wanted to e-mail you directly in case I did something wrong.) Richard Berry and Rebecca Levell are my ggggrandparents. They had a daughter, Mary Euphrasia in 1951. Her name is spelled Eurphairaza in the 1860 census. There is also a Harvey S. Tapp living with them. They are living in Cherokee County, Alabama. Richard and Rebecca were born in South Carolina. Harvey in Georgia. Richard was married before and had children by his first wife. Do you know who Rebecca's ancestors are? Since there are Tapp's and Leavell's in your family, I thought there might be a connection. Thank you very much.

Hi Jane,
I'm sorry, I was on the page that showed his parents and siblings, not the one that showed his marriage and children. I was a little worried because there has been some acrimony between Tapp descendents.
Rebecca remarried Richard Barry in 1849 and had my gggrandmother, Mary Euphrasia Barry. After Richard died, she married John Lyda in 1865. I'm adding information to a tree called Lyday Family Tree at Ancestry.com. I'm wondering if the John Lyda she married is the John Perry Lyday her daughter Mary married in 1867 but I don't know.
I've tried to find Elizabeth and M. M. A. but never came close. I may try again. They may have gone to Arkansas because a lot of their families went there. If there's someone who is a possibility, I'll let you know. There's someone I added to my tree named Martha Mary Ann. At first, I was kind of excited because M. M. A. had been in my mind but her birth year was way off. However, you never know.

Jane, thank you for the information regarding Rebecca Tapp (sub: Barry/Leavell Marriage or Berry/Leavell Marriage). At the time I was writing for the info, I was having a hard time getting into the DAR trying to prove their marriage.
Richard Barry m Elizabeth Barry (1st cousins) abt 1825 and had 7 children - Elizabeth died 1845 during child birth. Richard then married Rebecca Tapp Leavell (born in SC), January 16, 1849 in GA - they had daughter Mary Euphrasia, b 1850 in Cherokee Co, AL. Don't know when or why Rebecca died.

.....Bill for relief and sale of property Filed: 7/7/1849 attorney: Fair: "George Clark died 1834 with a will. He left widow, Catherine Clark and five children: Thomas L. Clark, R. P. Clark, John H. Clark (died shortly after his father and left no issue), Sarah Clark married Dr Thompson Wilson, Margaret Neel, the wife of George Neel. Margaret Neel had died after the testator and left the four children: Margaret E. Neel, who married Maxcy McMorris, Thomas L. Neel, Sarah A. K. Neel, and Louisa A. Neel. M. W. Miller, on 7/1/1849 stated that the home of the widow Catherine Clark is out of repair - it was rented out in 1848 - Catherine Clark, did not make any money farming on it - two of the slaves are on the decline and the land is going to waste - it would be best to have the property sold, probably next fall being the best time since cotton is at a high in sale price right now. David Boozer also stated the buildings on the Clark place were in poor repair and two of the slaves were very old. A map of the land and the will of George Clark is included. Also included is the 1799 bill of sale. The land was sold and seven slaves were also sold, their names are given and the names of their children." His grave is in the Bush River Baptist Cemetery, Newberry Co., SC. (RF Survey)

92. CHARLES LEAVELL (JOHN, ROBERT, EDWARD, ? LAVELLE) was born August 20, 1802 in Newberry County, South Carolina, USA, and died September 25, 1879 in Coweta County, Georgia, USA. He married ELIZABETH WORTHINGTON HUNTER 1833 in South Carolina, USA, daughter of GEORGE HUNTER and MARY WORTHINGTON. She was born August 05, 1813 in Newberry County, South Carolina, USA, and died January 24, 1884 in Turin, Coweta, Georgia, USA. There's a findagrave.com photo of his tombstone, but it's shattered and I don't believe the dates can be read. The FAG page gives his DOB as August 30, 1803 and DOD as October 10, 1879.

Notes for CHARLES LEAVELL:
Charles Leavell was a Baptist reverend. He moved to Coweta County, Georgia, in 1834 and joined the Newman Baptist Church. The biography of the 9 Leavell brothers claims he married Frances M. Hunter.

.....Originally known as the John Rowland Leavell Funeral Home, our facilites were first located near the present-day Hampton Inn on Nance Street in Newberry, SC. This home was founded in 1847, and in 1865 Robert Young Leavell built the Nance Street facility.
.....After the death of R. Y. Leavell in 1935, James R. Leavell took over the helm, moving the Newberry Home to its present site (Calhoun St. & College St.) in the winter of 1937.
.....The College Street facility was built by Edward Sholtz around 1880 and sold to Dr. William E. Pelham in 1889. Upon his death in 1930 the home went into Dr. Pelham's estate. It was purchased 1936 by John Stockman, who in turn sold it to James R. Leavell.
.....In 1951 the home was sold to Roy Doggett Whitaker, Sr. acquiring its current name under which it was incorporated October of 1970. Not long thereafter (1972) a new brick garage was added.
.....Roy Doggett Whitaker, Jr. was named General Manager of the Whitaker Funeral Home in 1974 and carries on the family tradition to this date.

See http://genealogytrails.com/scar/newberry/biojohn_leavell.htm for a picture of him and a biography of him. He had dark brown hair with a tendency to curl, and brown eyes, and a taste for fine clothes. John Rowland Leavell went from farming to stone masonry, undertaking and furniture making. He was a deacon in the Newberry Baptist church, and in 1856 a "Worthy Patriot of the Lodge of the Sons of Temperance."

The recorded death of J. R. Leavell states he died 6 Feb 1900 of rheumatism and sciatica and had lived in Newberry for twenty-five years, but in reality it was much longer. His funeral was delayed until 11 Feb 1900 because his son, the Rev. Dr. Hayne Leavell, of Houston, Texas, missed a train connection in New Orleans.

Children of JOHN LEAVELL and ELIZABETH CHALMERS are:

Special to The State
Miss Fanny Leavell
Newberry, Feb. 7---One of Newberry's noblest and best women passed away this morning at 6 o'clock when Miss Fanny Leavell died. As a teacher for many years she left her impress on many minds and hearts that are all the better for what she taught them. Seven years of her life were spent as a teacher in the Columbia Female College, a Methodist institution, and her pupils are in every part of the State. Several years ago she gave up teaching because of feeble health and came back home to live. Her last years were years of suffering, which she bore with patience and without complaint. She was a daughter of the late Col. Jno. R. Leavell and was a faithful and devoted member of Baptist church. She was 76 years old in October. Surviving her are the following brothers and sisters: Robt. Y. Leavell of Newberry, William Hayne Leavell of Mississippi, now minister to Guatemala, and John R. Leavell of Greenwood, Mrs. Jno. F. Spearman of Columbia, Mrs. Maggie Tarrant of Newberry, Mrs. C.C. Watson of Richmond, Va., Mrs. W. E. Pelham and Mrs. George A. Wright of Newberry. The burial will take place tomorrow afternoon at 4 o'clock in Rosemont cemetery, with the funeral service at the grave.

Page 364 has the following reference:
The first settlers west of the river (Stillwater) were William and David Miles, who hailed from South Carolina in 1807. The former died the same year of his arrival. At this period, settlements began to be made in the northern part of the township, on Panther Creek. Robert Leavell, from South Carolina, settled on Section 2 in 1808, and William Perry, from Tennessee, located himself on Section 6 at about the same time, while Robert Dickson, the father of two sons and several daughters, located himself on northwest quarter, Section 7, in 1808-09.

On page 745, it was noted that Wilkson Pearson was married in 1826 to Eleanor, a daughter of Robert Leavell, a native of South Carolina, and that they had eight children, three of whom were still living.

On page 786, it was noted that Ephraim Pearson, born in Newton Township in August 1834, was the son of Wilkinson Pearson and Eleanor Leavell of South Carolina. Also, it indicated that Ephraim Pearson married Eleanor, daughter of Robert Leavell.
