BENJAMIN J. GREGORY (12 December 1786-7 June 1853), son of Gerard and Freelove Gregory, married Elizabeth Crosby Jeter (2 January 1794-18 May 1851), daughter of James and Mary Crosby Jeter, on 11 June 1811. Both Elizabeth and Benjamin were lifelong residents of Union County.
.....It should be noted that Benjamin married well. Elizabeth's father was a Revolutionary War hero and a prosperous Union County planter. Benjamin gained much in land and personal estate upon his marriage. Of course, the property became Benjamin's in right of his wife. There were few laws to protect the rights of women at that time.
.....Benjamin was a prosperous planter and real estate trader in his own right. He also served as Magistrate and Justice of the Peace in Union County at various times. He was in the money lending business in his younger years.
.....The first documents of record on Benjamin in Union County were for four chattel mortgages held by him. The first for $25, executed 17 March 1810 and recorded 18 May of that year (Deed Book K, p. 138).
.....The second (Deed Book K, pp. 301-2) was for $44.92. The mortgagee, Thomas Bell, promised to pay by 25 December 1810. The collateral on this loan was Bell's corn and cotton crop, two beds, a mare and services. Benjamin apparently did not believe in taking chances!
.....The third mortgage (Deed Book K, pp. 300-1) was more explicit in regard to services: Thomas Sandage agreed to indent himself to Benjamin for two years, along with the mortgage of his cows, horses, etc. -all this for a loan of $60. The fourth chattel mortage, for $62, was pretty much the same. Benjamin must have been very shrewd indeed to take advantage of these opportunities!
.....He bought, traded and sold several thousand acres of land during his lifetime. He reported ownership of 1160 acres in the 1850 Census of Agriculture. He valued his "farm" at $11,600. He also reported ownership of 8 horses, 4 asses/mules, 12 milch cows, 2 bulls, 4 working oxen, 6 sheep and 63 pigs. He valued his livestock at $1,461.
.....Little is known of his and Elizabeth's early religious life, but records of Cane Creek Baptist Church (now known as Salem) indicate that Benjamin, Elizabeth, William Harrison, Aswin Starks, James Thompson and Benjamin Franklin joined that congregation in 1835.
.....Transcripts of their tombstone inscriptions are recorded on the following pages because they poetically express the love of their family for them. Note that Benjamin's tombstone records nine living children. He and Elizabeth were the parents of ten known children. A son, Argulass, preceded them in death.
.....Beniamin's will (which is presented in full on the pages following) is an interesting document in many ways. He willed 1547 acres of land specifically and made reference to other acreage. There is evidence of his having bought 1262 acres during his life and having sold 808.5 acres, plus his share of the 100 acres of his parent's estate.
.....The explanation for this is fairly simple. Very often, in the early years of our country, deeds were not even recorded until the buyer was ready to dispose of the land. Inherited land was quite often not recorded.
.....David Sims Jeter, Elizabeth's unmarried brother, remembered his Gregory nephews in his will and also set aside land for the Jeter Family Cemetery. He went a step farther and provided funds for tombstones for his family members. It is ironic that his is one of the smaller stones in the cemetery.
.....Benjamin and Elizabeth were the parents of ten known children - nine sons and one daughter. They were: William Harrison; Aswin Starks; James Thompson; Benjamin Franklin; John J.E.; Andrew Jackson; Argulass; Sarah Elvira; Berry J. Adolphus; and Pickens Butler.

18 July 2002:
Dear Ms. Leavell,
One item in your Leavell Family genealogy caught my eye: In his 1851 will, Benjamin Gregory leaves to his son John J. E. Gregory 394 acres of "the Ashby land".
.....The only Ashby family in Union County SC ca. 1800-1850 was that of my gggg-grandfather, John Ashby. He died in 1823, leaving widow Sarah and 10 children. Some of these Ashbys like Gregorys were also members of Cane Creek Baptist Church. Before 1850 the Ashbys went to Mississippi.
.....Could you tell me anything else about that land? Would you have copies of any documents pertaining to its location and its transfer from Ashby to Gregory? I would be grateful for any information you might be able to share. Especially since I do not know exactly where my Ashbys lived in Union Co.
.....Moreover, I wonder if your Leavells might be related. One of John Ashby's sons was L. H. Ashby, born about 1819. His first name appears in records as Lovell or Level, also in one census as Lev -- which is the name the family remembers. That name seems to be a surname used as a first name, perhaps from his mother's family. Lev Ashby was my ggg-grandfather.
With best wishes,
Bill Brown

Children of ELIZABETH JETER and BENJAMIN GREGORY are:
.....i.....WILLIAM HARRISON GREGORY, b. Union County, South Carolina; d. March 17, 1874, Chickasaw County, Mississippi.

Notes for WILLIAM HARRISON GREGORY:
.....William Harrison Gregory (ca. 1813-17 March 1874), eldest son of Benjamin J. and Elizabeth C. Jeter Gregory, was born in Union County, South Carolina and died in Chickasaw County, Mississippi, where he had moved after his father's death. He was thrice married.
.....His first wife, Sarah -?- (12 March 1818-21 June 1842), died apparently in or as a result of childbirth (tombstone inscription follows). She is buried in the Gregory Family Cemetery on a hill behind the A. Starks Gregory house near Santuc. Nothing further is known about the child referred to.

In memory of
Sarah Gregory wife of W.H. Gregory
who died June 21, 1842
aged 24 years, 3 months and 9 days.
"Amiable through life, she had the love of
all who knew her, and at her death had the
comfortable assurance of the love of God in Christ,
which the world can neither give nor take away

She left a husband and an infant child to
mourn her early departure."

'Alone, dear husband, here I sleep,
Though you must never, never weep
Take care of our sweet little babe
Whilst I am here in death's dark shade.'

.....His second wife was Emily -?-. She appears with him on the 1850 census of Union County, aged 22 years. She, too, must have died because William married his third wife in 1856.
.....The third wife, Margaret Wilson Bedel (19 November 1829-3 July 1872), was the widow of B.G. Bedell. They were married 18 November 1856 at the home of Austin Wilson in Union County. Margaret was the daughter of Clinton Wilson. It is within his estate packet in Union County (Box 43, Pkg. 29, filed in 1860) that her first husband is mentioned. Margaret rests with William at Friendship Church Cemetery in Van Vleet, Chickasaw County. As with the two previous marriages, no issue is known.
.....Andrew Jackson Gregory, brother of William Harrison, allowed his brother and his brother's wife, Margaret, to care for - as their own daughter - his child, Sarah E. Gregory (17 June 1862-28 August 1868). It was apparently a custom of the era to give a child to a childless relative as a token of love and family bond. Sarah is buried with William and Margaret.
.....Another estate located in Union County (Box 65, Pkg. 10) filed in 1877 with Charles Bolt as administrator, references the residence of the late W. Harrison Gregory. The record refers to an undivided interest in the estate of Clinton Wilson.

Equality grocery store owner Thomas H. Leavell (one of my great-something uncles) not only owned the store in Equality during the 1830s, but is also found in Natchez and paying taxes on a slave in Concordia Parish, Louisiana, which is right across the river from Natchez. I've also found someone with the same name down in Louisiana in the 1820s that's probably him as well.

Thomas H. Leavell. 1840s. Probate records. Gallatin County Circuit Clerk's Office. Leavell's widely scattered probate records includes entries for Charles Adams, known simply as "Crenshaws Charles."

My guess is that she's the widow of Thomas Holland Leavell, who was born September 29, 1797 in Virginia and died Nov 10, 1841 in Gallatin County, Illinois. Thomas had businesses in Louisiana, too. His wife was Elizabeth Corbett. (But that would make Alfred W. Level illegitimate....) And how come she shows up in the next census records as a Leavell?

Hello,
.....As a descendant of William Baldwin, an early Gallatin County resident who married into the Leavell family and lived in the lower Eagle Creek Valley during the 1830s, I've often wondered at the identity of William's parents. Some of my cousins have suggested that Isaac Baldwin fit the bill since he was the earliest Baldwin in the area. I've supported that theory, but last week I found an old query that suggests otherwise.
.....It's from Miss Mary Pl Fletcher of 521 Cumberland, Little Rock, Arkansas and is found in the William and Mary Quarterly, 2nd series. 20:1. 147. (I think this is from the 1940s or so).
.....Baldwin.---Isaac Baldwin married Susannah Bridges in Barren County, Kentucky, in 1806, and left soon after for Gallatin County, Illinois. Children: Elizabeth, born 1807; Pamelia, born 1809; Blanton, born 1810; Urben B., born 1812; Nancy, born 1815, Simon Buford, born 1819; and Elbert Haney, born 1821. They lived in Illinois between Saline Tavern and Ohio River. Isaac Baldwin manufactured medicine for backwood neighbors. I want the parents of this couple and their family connections.
.....I did some checking online. A site for Barren County, Kentucky, Early Marriages (http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~gensoup/early/earlymarriagesB.html) showed Isaac's marriage on May 18, 1806. I also found some surveys in the Blue Springs area of Barren County in 1808, 1809, era that mention Baldwin.
.....As my William was supposedly born in 1801 in Virginia, he could only be Isaac's son by an earlier marriage. Does anybody have any more information on these individuals.
.....Sincerely,
Jon Musgrave

Helm; Lieutenant Colonels J.W. Griffith, H.C. Leavell, and Thomas G. Woodward; and Majors John W. Caldwell and N.R. Chambliss.

CHAPTER VII.
The Oak Grove Rangers were organized and mustered into service June 25. 1861, near Camp Boone, Montgomery Co., Tenn., for a period of twelve months. They were officered as follows: Thomas G. Wood-ward, Captain; Darwin Bell, First Lieutenant; Frank Campbell, Second Lieutenant, and J. M. Jones, Brevet Second Lieutenant. They numbered at the time about 130 of the very flower of the youth of Christian County, who had been thoroughly armed and equipped at the expense of the citizens about Oak Grove. Among them were Austin Peay, present State Senator from this district; Frank Buckner, William McGuire; William A. Elliott, afterward Captain of Company A., Second Regiment; B. F. and Henry Clardy, Radford, Bob and Nat Owens, John Blankenship, William and Sim Nichols, William Blakemore, Robert Kelly, W. L. and B. S. Leavell...Thus organized they moved in September, 1861. into Kentucky, in advance of Gen. Buckner's command from Camp Boone, Tennessee. At Bowling Green they went into camp with the rest of the army, and were at once assigned to duty as Companies A and B, First Regiment of Kentucky Cavalry, under Col. Ben Hardin Helm. Company B numbered about one hundred men at the time, and was officered as follows: Captain, J. W. Caldwell ; First Lieutenant, W. A. Elliott ; Second Lieutenant, William Campbell ; Brevet Second Lieutenant, Hazard Baker. Shortly afterward Capt. H. C. Leavell arrived with another company of Christian County troops, numbering about one hundred men rank and file, and was assigned to duty as Company H in the same regiment. It was officered as follows: Captain, H. C. Leavell...We now go back to the time Companies A and B were disbanded at Atlanta, and take up the fortunes of Company H, whose time had not yet expired. They remained under the command of Lieut.-Col. H. C. Leavell, their old Captain, till just before Bragg started on the march to Kentucky, when, Col. Leavell dying, they passed under the command of Maj. J. W. Caldwell.

"The universal testimony of the comrades in arms and the acquaintences and neighbors of Col. Leavell, is to the effect that he was a brave and gallant soldier, an officer of more than ordinary ability, a thorough gentleman and a Christian. His early death was greatly lamented, and his memory is still cherished in this community with a reverence that is but seldom attained by those who have lived long and useful lives. Seldom has the pall of death cast so heavy a shadow over the community, as did the death of Col. Leavell, over this; he lived and died in communion with the Salem Baptist Church, in Christian County, Ky." (From County of Christian, Kentucky: Historical & Biographical, p. 481

MRS. SALLIE A, WILLS was born in Christian County, Ky., in 1836, in which she was reared, and made her home to the present time. Her father, Mr. John C. Clardy, was born in North Carolina in 1798, removed to Smith Countv, Tenn., and thence to Christian County, Ky., about 1830, where be died at Wood Lawn, the old Clardy homestead, in 1853, The Clardy family are of old French Huguenot stock, who settled in an early day in Florida and emigrated to North Carolina, many years ago. Her mother, Mrs. Elizabeth (Cacey) Clardy, was born at Cumberland Court House, Virginia, in 1804, and is still living, To John C, Clardy and wife were born : William D., Dr. John D., James M., Benjamin F., Mrs. Sallie A. (Wills), Dr. Thomas F., Henry H. and Mrs. Fannie M. (Burke). Mrs. Wills was first married in 1855 to Col. Henry C. Leavell, who was born in Todd County, Ky,, in 1624, and died in Walker County, Ga., August 26, 1862. The universal testimony of the comrades in arms and the acquaintances and neighbors of Col, Leavell, is to the effect that he was a brave and gallant soldier, an officer of more than ordinary ability, a thorough gentleman and a Christian, His early death was greatly lamented, and his memory is still cherished in this community with a reverence that is but seldom attained by those who have lived long and useful lives. Seldom has the pall of death cast so heavy a shadow over a community, as did the death of Col, Leavell, over this ; he lived and died in communion with the Salem Baptist Church, in Christian County, Ky, To Col. and Mrs, Leavell were born a son, Joseph H., who is now superintending the home farm, with a bright future before him ; and Mrs. Lizzie C,, wife of Philander B. Pendleton, of this county. Mrs. Leavell was next married in 1866, to Mr, George H. Murphey ills, who was born in Christian County, Ky., in 1842, and died in 1682; he was a good and gentlemanly man, and held in high esteem; he, with his wife, was a member of the Baptist Church. To them were born George W. and John C, Wills.

//////
Okay, something's crazy here. This Benjamin Samuel Leavell marries a Moore, and his sister Martha married Jefferson Moore. But in the 1850 Christian Co. census, there's a Benjamin Lewis Leavell the same age living with Jefferson and Martha. A cousin? Is the name Benjamin Samuel Lewis Leavell? Did someone misread a handwritten "L" for "S"?
/////
Benjamin Lewis Leavell was the brother of Martha J. Leavell, born 1819 in Christian Co. KY, m. 5 May 1837 there to Jefferson Moore. They were the children of Benjamin Leavell and Elizabeth Willis. But I had him down as Benjamin Samuel Leavell, husband of Elijzabeth J. Moore, who was born 1839. He's the right age, the right birthplace, the right death area...just the wrong wife (and she's a Moore, the surname mentioned by Sue below). A second wife? A mistake? A coincidence?

I have no proof there's an Elizabeth Moore, or that a Benjamin Samuel Leavell died 30 Jul 1871 in Texas.

I am looking for information about Dr Benjamin Lewis LEAVELL(E) and his wife, Emma G. Beaumont LEAVELL(E) who were living in Christian County, KY in 1863 with four children including Lewis LEAVELL(E). I think Dr LEAVELL(E)'s sister was married to a MOORE and they had several children. The MOOREs were living in Chrisitan County, KY in 1850 census.

Notes for CORTEZ LEAVELL:
Is it likely that one father would have a Henry Cortez and a plain Cortez? A resident of Hokinsville, Kentucky, he maried Annie B. Kay in October of 1881 and had Carrie Bailey Leavell, per book David Williams Sequel to "The Genealogy of the Williams Family" by John Fletcher Williams.

147. OPHELIA FRANCES LEAVELL (BENJAMIN, BENJAMIN, EDWARD, EDWARD, ? LAVELLE) was born September 23, 1833 in Christian County, Kentucky, USA, and died May 26, 1887 in Christian County, Kentucky, USA. She married HENRY C. ABERNATHY in Christian County, Kentucky, USA, son of RALEIGH ABERNATHY and MARTHA AVERY. He was born April 30, 1825 in Brunswick County, Virginia, USA, and died August 23, 1888 in Christian County, Kentucky, USA.

Notes for OPHELIA FRANCES LEAVELL:
County of Christian, Kentucky. Historical and Biographical. Edited by William Henry Perrin. F. A. Battey Publishing Co., 1884, pp. 339-340.
HENRY G. ABERNATHY was born April 30, 1825, in Brunswick County, Va. He is the third of four children born to Raleigh H. and Martha T. Abernathy (nee Avery). Amanda, the eldest, is the widow of Col. Thomas Rowlett, of Petersburg, Va.; John E. died in Ballard County, Ky., and William A. is still a resident of the same county. Their parents died many years past in Virginia, and in 1842 Henry G. removed to Tennessee, locating in Montgomery County, near the State line, where for four years he engaged in farming. In 1846 he again removed, this time settling further north, in the southern portion of Christian County, Ky. Here he devoted himself chiefly to agricultural pursuits, with which he combined mercantile business for some time, as well as engaging for several years in teaching school, in which profession he manifested especial fitness. He came to Hopkinsville in 1869, and that year erected the first tobacco warehouse built in that city. Since that date he has been the pronouced leader in the local tobacco market, and is still actively engaged in the tobacco trade. Mr. Abernathy was married in Christian County to Miss Ophelia F., daughter of Benjamin and Elizabeth Leavell. Mrs. Abernathy is a native of Christian County, descending from one of the oldest as well as most honorable families of Kentucky. They have but one child - a son, named Henry H. Abernathy, junior member of the firm of H. G. Abernathy & Son. Both Mr. and Mrs. Abernathy are members of the Baptist Church of Hopkinsville. A portrait of Mr. Abernathy will be found in a group elsewhere in this volume.Abernathy Avery Leavell Rowlett = Ballard Brunswick-VA Montgomery-TN

148. ST. CLAIR JAMES LEAVELL (LEWIS LIVINGSTON, BENJAMIN, EDWARD, EDWARD, ? LAVELLE) was born December 24, 1805 in Todd County, Kentucky, USA, and died October 01, 1894 in near Trenton, Todd, Kentucky, USA. He married (1) MARTHA BATTLE DORTCH, daughter of ISAAC DORTCH and MARTHA NORFLEET. She was born 1812 in Robertson County, Tennessee, USA, and died Abt. 1844. He married (2) SARAH PRICE BUCK January 02, 1844 in Woodford County, Kentucky, USA, daughter of PETER BUCK and MIRIAM PRICE. She was born February 22, 1822 in Versailles, Woodford, Kentucky, USA, and died in Todd County, Kentucky, USA.

Notes for DR. ST. CLAIR JAMES LEAVELL:
Often listed as "Sinclair Leavell." Per the LDS IGI, Sinclair was born about 1818 and was married 1844 (January 02, 1844, per another site) in Woodford County, Kentucky, to Sarah Price Buck. She was born 22 February 1822 in Versailles, Woodford Co., KY, to Peter Chew Buck and Miriam P. Price. Peter moved from Woodford County, Ky., in about 1830 to a farm in Montgomery County, Tenn. where he and his wife were buried, but his children returned to Kentucky. Another grandson of Peter and Miriam, John Thomas Buck (son of Martha Ann Buck and Samuel Dawson Buck), married a Hadenia Leavell and they had a son, William Jasper Buck.

John Thomas Buck was married to Hadenia Leavell BROWN before 1869. John Thomas BUCK and Hadenia Leavell BROWN (1847--1930) had the following children: William Jasper BUCK. Check Jackson, Tennessee -- http://www.familyorigins.com/users/b/u/c/Gordon-S-Buck/FAMO1-0001/d949.htm#P955

Okay, William and Sarah Brown were the parents of Hadenia Leavell Brown, who was born in Hinds County, Mississippi. See the 1850 census.

LAVELLE) was born August 24, 1807 in Todd County, Kentucky, USA, and died November 23, 1860 in Hopkinsville, Christian, Kentucky, USA. He married MARY ANN BUCKNER May 26, 1829 in Christian County, Kentucky, USA, daughter of GEORGE BUCKNER and ANN SAUNDERS. She was born December 02, 1812 in Virginia, USA, and died January 03, 1894.

Notes for LIVINGSTON LEWIS LEAVELL:
Livingston L. Leavell md Mariann M. Buckner Marr. May 26, 1829 By: H. Caldwell, M.G.

Memorial Record of Western Kentucky, Volume I and Volume II, Lewis Publishing Company, 1904, pp. 83-85. Christian Co.

BUCKNER LEAVELLBuckner Leavell, steward of the Western Kentucky Asylum for Insane, Hopkinsville, Kentucky, is a native of this place and was born June 24, 1852. The Leavells are of French origin. Their emigration to and settlement in this country was previous to the Revolutionary war, and the great-great-grandfather of our subject was a general in that war. In Virginia the Leavell feamily settled and there several generations of them lived and died. Lewis Livingston Leavell, the father of Buckner Leavell, was born in Virginia in 1807, son of Lewis Leavell, a native of that state, who emigrated with his family to Kentucky in the early part of the last century and settled in Todd county. He started the town of Trenton in Todd county, and there he had a large landed estate and was the owner of many slaves. His family comprised six children, the second born being Lewis Livingston. Lewis Livingston Leavell was reared on his father's plantation, where the family settled when he was quite small, and he was educated for a lawyer, in a school in New Orleans. About 1830 he located in Hopkinsville and engaged in the practice of law, which he continued for some time. Farm life, however, had more attraction for him that did the law, and he removed to his country home. He was the largest landowner in Christian county, had a large number of slaves and dealt extensively in tobacco, shipping to Liverpool, England. For many years he took an active interest in politics, and at one time represented his county in the state legislature. He died in November, 1860. He and his wife were the parents of ten children, five sons and five daughters. The mother of this family was before marriage Miss Mary Ann Buckner. She was born in Virginia in 1812 and when a child came to Christian county, Kentucky, where she was reared. She was a daughter of Frank Buckner, a prominent early pioneer of Kentucky, he having come from Virginia to this state, where he became the owner of many broad acres and dusky slaves. She was left an orphan when a child, and was reared by her aunt, Susan Buckner. The Buckners were the oldest family in Christian county, the date of their arrival here being more than a hundred years ago.
.....Buckner Leavell is the youngest son in his father's family. He was reared in Hopkinsville. At the early age of seventeen years he commenced farming operations on his own account, and continued thus employed for a period of thirteen years. Then he moved back to Hopkinsville and turned his attention to the real estate and insurance business, still, however, retaining his farm, and superintending its operation up to the present time. For several years he dealt in real estate and wrote insurance, and during that time he served one term as city treasurer. He was elected city judge for a term of four years. This latter office he resigned in order to accept the position he now holds, that of steward at the Western Kentucky Asylum for Insane. Mr. Leavell married Miss Anna Monroe, daughter of Judge James Monroe, of Frankfort, Kentucky. Mrs. Leavell belongs to the same family of Monroes that furnished the United States with a president. Fraternally, Mr. Leavell is identified with a number of organizations, including Knights of Pythias, Independent Order of Odd Fellows, Ancient Order of United Workmen, and Woodmen of the World. He is also a member of the Baptist church.

http://www.kyseeker.com/christian/meacham/biod.html
FRANK WINSTON DABNEY was born at Princeton, Ky., May 20, 1846. His parents were Cornelius Thomas Dabney and Mary Louise Wylie Dabney. His father came from Louisa Court House, Virginia, and was a direct descendant of the Dabneys who were French Huguenots named D'Aubigne. They left France at the time of St. Bartholomew's Massacre and stayed for a while in England. Having changed the name to Dabney, they came to America and settled in Virginia.
.....Cornelius Thomas Dabney came out from Virginia on horseback and stayed with his uncle, Major Dabney, who lived on Russellville Street in Hopkinsville, and who was the ancestor of the Cadiz families of that name.
.....Cornelius Thomas Dabney settled in Princeton, Ky., and Frank Winston Dabney was his eldest son and came to Hopkinsville in 1869, where he worked in the Christian County Court Clerk's office, later became a shoe merchant, and, when the tobacco market was established, entered the tobacco business. His first wife was Miss Mary Ann Leavell who died, leaving no children. He was married the second time to Miss M. Augusta Scobey on August 18, 1886. This union was blessed by six children: Alise, now Mrs. Oscar G. Westendarp, of Monterey, Mexico; Frank Winston Dabney, Jr.; Robert Cornelius Dabney, of Akron, Ohio; Edward Settle Dabney, of Lexington, Ky.; Elisabeth, now Mrs. George Andre Grobien, of Monterey, Mexico; and Lieut.

.....BUCKNER LEAVELL Buckner Leavell, steward of the Western Kentucky Asylum for Insane, Hopkinsville, Kentucky, is a native of this place and was born June 24,1852. The Leavells are of French origin. Their emigration to and settlement in this country was previous to the Revolutionary war, and the great-great-grandfather of our subject was a general in that war. In Virginia the Leavell feamily settled and there several generations of them lived and died.
.....Lewis Livingston Leavell, the father of Buckner Leavell,was born in Virginia in 1807, son of Lewis Leavell, a native of that state, who emigrated with his family to Kentucky in the early part of the last century and settled in Todd county. He started the town of Trenton in Todd county, and there he had a large landed estate and was the owner of many slaves. His family comprised six children, the second born being Lewis Livingston.
.....Lewis Livingston Leavell was reared on his father's plantation, where the family settled when he was quite small, and he was educated for a lawyer, in a school in New Orleans. About 1830 he located in Hopkinsville and engaged in the practice of law, which he continued for some time. Farmlife, however, had more attraction for him that did the law, and he removed to his country home. He was the largest landowner in Christian county, had a large number of slaves and dealt extensively in tobacco, shipping to Liverpool, England. For many years he took an active interest in politics, and at one time represented his county in the state legislature. He died in November, 1860. He and his wife were the parents of ten children, five sons and five daughters. The mother of this family was before marriage Miss Mary Ann Buckner. She was born in Virginia in 1812 and when a child came to Christian county, Kentucky, where she was reared. She was a daughter of Frank Buckner, a prominent early pioneer of Kentucky, he having come from Virginia to this state, where he became the owner of many broad acres and dusky slaves. She was left an orphan when a child, and was reared by her aunt, Susan Buckner. The Buckners were the oldest family in Christian county, the date of their arrival here being more than a hundred years ago.
.....Buckner Leavell is the youngest son in his father's family. He was reared in Hopkinsville. At the early age of seventeen years he commenced farming operations on his own account, and continued thus employed for a period of thirteen years. Then he moved back to Hopkinsville and turned his attention to the real estate and insurance business, still, however, retaining his farm, and superintending its operation up to the present time. For several years he dealt in real estate and wrote insurance, and during that time he served one term as city treasurer. He was elected city judge for a term of four years. This latter office he resigned in order to accept the position he now holds, that of steward at the Western Kentucky Asylum for Insane. Mr. Leavell married Miss Anna Monroe, daughter of Judge James Monroe, of Frankfort, Kentucky. Mrs. Leavell belongs to the same family of Monroes that furnished the United States with a president. Fraternally, Mr. Leavell is identified with a number of organizations, including Knights of Pythias, Independent Order of Odd Fellows, Ancient Order of United Workmen, and Woodmen of the World. He is also a member of the Baptist church. Wife: Ann Monroe.

Notes for LEONIDAS WORT LEAVELL:
"History of Clay County" excerpts:
L.W. Leavell: (Farmer, Fine Stock Raiser and Stock-dealer, Post-office, Kearney, MO) Clay County has long had the reputation of being one of the best stock-raising counties in the State. Not only do the farmers here give their principal attention to stock-raising, for which the county is remarkably well adapted, but they are generally a class of men of enterprise and information, who take pride in securing the best stock for breeding purposes to be had. This practice has had a beneficial result in two ways: it has been profitable to the farmers themselves, but has given the county an enviable name as a fine stock county. Prominent among the farmers who have done their full share toward advancing the stock interests of Clay county is the subject of this present sketch, Mr. Leavell, who came here in 1854. He was a well-to-do fine stock raiser in Kentucky, and after coming here bought about 1700 acres of fine land. Having some forty odd or fifty negroes, he improved a large farm, and engaged in farming and stockraising quite extensively. His negro property was soon afterwards taken from him by operation of war, but he was, nevertheless, recognized as one of the leading farmers and stock-raisers of the county. He is a man of high character and superior intelligence and information, and occupies a prominent position in the community. He was born in Todd County, KY, December 21, 1821, and was reared to a farm life, receiving a common-school education as he grew up. In 1838, he was married to Harriet D. Winn, a daughter of George Winn, of Christian county, KY, a prominent and wealthy citizen of that county. Eight children have been the fruits of their union, namely, Frances, now the wife of Reverend G.W. Rogers, of Dallas, TX; Sarah, the wife of Samuel C. Greenfield, of this county; Georgia A., now the wife of Dr. Silas N. Denham, of Clay county, MO; Daniel W., now a resident of Kansas; Eugenia S, wife of William Rust, also a resident of Kansas; Leonidas, W. Llewellyn, Lane and Robert Ernest Lee. Three others are deceased, who, however, lived to mature years. Lycurgus L., their eldest son, who died in California; Harriet L, who died whilst the wife of John J. Eastin, and Montgomery D. Mr and Mrs. Leavell are members of the Baptist Church, and Mr. L. is a Royal Arch Mason. Mr. Leavell's farm contains 860 acres. The balance of his land is divided among his children. He has a handsome homestead, including commodities and tastily built residence, and substantial, neat appearing barns and other outer buildings. He is very comfortably situated in life.

Death of Mrs. E.J. Atkinson; Pioneer ROSEVILLE (Placer Co.), June 20 - Mrs. E.J. ATKINSON, one of the oldest and most highly-esteemed residents of Placer County died here yesterday afternoon of paralysis, at the home of her daughter, Mrs. R.E.L. LEAVELL.
...She was stricken about a year ago, and while she has appeared to improve at times, the state of her health has been very feeble for many months.
...Mrs. ATKINSON was a pioneer woman, she having come to California in 1852 by way of the Isthmus of Panama, landing at San Francisco in September of that year. She was born in Canada, December 23, 1830, but was brought to the United States when a child, and settled in Illinois, coming from that State to California, she being at the time a widow. In 1854 she was married to George HILL, at Sacramento, from which union six children were born. She was again left a widow in 1861, and some years latter married a man by the name of ATKINSON, whose name she bore at the time of her death. She possessed rare executive ability and accumulated a large fortune, at the time of her death being one of the three largest individual taxpayers in the county.
...Four children survive her, they being Mrs. R.E.L. LEAVELL, John A. HILL and Walter FIDDYMENT, of Roseville, and Mrs. Dr. W.N. FINNEY, of Lincoln, besides relatives living at Sacramento, Courtland and Santa Rosa. Funeral arrangements have been made for to-morrow at 2 p.m., and interment will be in the Roseville cemetery.

Notes for JAMES MONROE LEAVELL:
" James moved to Randolph County, Indiana in a very early day where he reared a large family. I know but very little of them, although I have met two of the sons and a daughter. One of the sons, Dick , as he was commonly called, served in the War of 1812 and belonged to the "26" Indiana Volunteers. He was twice elected clerk of Randolph County. He now lives in the west and I think in Seattle, Washington. Thomas J. lives in Winchester, Ind. and F.M. lives in Markle, Indiana. This is as far as I can trace this family." (See the link to this Leavell history written in 1915 in Elwood, Madison, IN.)

Moved to Randolph Co. 1848, just north of Parker.

Notes for FRANCIS M. LEAVELL:
History of Huntington County, Indiana 1914 By Frank S. Bash pg. 817-18
Francis M. Leavell.
.....Numbered among the residents of Huntington county is Francis M. Leavell, prominent among the substantial citizens of Rock Creek township and one of the well-to-do farming men of the township and county. He has been identified with farming activities in this county since 1874, when he came here from his native county of Randolph in Indiana, and Rock Creek township has had the good fortune to claim him as a citizen from the time when he reached his majority to the present day. He has been a potent influence in the matter of furthering the development of the farming centers of the community, and progressive ideas have not been strangers to him in the administration of his affairs.
.....Francis M. Leavell was born in Randolph county, Indiana, December 26, 1849, coming as a belated Christmas gift to his parents and being the seventh in order of birth in a family of eight. Four of the number are now living: William H. is a resident of Missouri; Richard A. is living in Seattle, Washington; Nancy A. is the wife of Jacob A. Hoover, of Bluffton, Indiana; and Francis M. is the subject of this brief family review. He is the son of James M. and Ruth (Corwine) Leavell, the father a native of Kentucky, but reared in Henry county, Indiana, where he met and married Ruth Corwine. After their marriage they moved to Randolph county, where they identified themselves worthily and successfully with the substantial farming activities of their community. They were industrious and sober-minded people, possessing many worthy characteristics that made them valuable in their citizenship, and as members of the Christian church they were known for thorough-going Christian people, active in the work of the church and in the practice of Christian virtues and principles seven days in every week. Both died in Randolph county, the father in 1863 and the mother in 1852.
.....It was on the Randolph county farm that Francis M. Leavell was reared to the age of thirteen. He obtained his education in the common schools of that community, assisting in the work of the farm from his earliest boyhood until the time when he became dependent on his own responsibility. He was nineteen when he made his advent into Huntington county, and he located immediately in Rock Creek township. He worked as a farm hand by the year until he married Mary Sheets, the daughter of John Sheets, his employer. His marriage took place in 1874, and since that time he has been the operator of a farm of his own in this community. His place contains one hundred acres, and is one of the creditable farms of the township.
.....Although Mr. and Mrs. Leavell have had no children of their own they have reared two: Emma Crandall became the wife of Ulysses Coolman, of this county, and a nephew of Mr. Leavell, Martin E. Leavell, was reared in this home from the age of eight years. He is now one of the useful and prosperous citizens of Rock Creek township.
.....The family are members of the Christian church at Buckeye, Indiana. Mr. Leavell is a stockholder in the Farmers and Traders Bank at Markle, Indiana, and is in other ways identified with the best interests of the community of his trading point. Mrs. Leavell died on March 1, 1913, leaving a host of friends who mourn her loss. She was a good wife, and in the community where she was best known she was loved by many who knew her for her many noble attributes of character and personality.

Cousin Jane,
Great work on your website! I am the ggg granddaughter of Benjamin Leavelle and Susannah Whisler. I had been given the death date of Susannah as 21 Jun 1898. Unless we had some kind of miracle going on in this family, that date is in error, as I found her in the 1900 census (Nebraska, Polk, Hackberry, ED 96, p 11a, 205/205) listed with her son Oliver. Have you come across her in any death records?
Thanks a bunch,
Arlene "Kat" Davis

B. F. Leavell
…..The development of Caldwell and of Canyon county is attributable to its real estate men perhaps more than to any other class of its citizens, for active in the real estate field are progressive men who realize the opportunities of this section and are endeavoring to locate in the district families who desire to develop farms and contribute to the upbuilding of the state. In this connection Mr. Leavell has become well known and his labors are far-reaching and resultant.
….. A native of Iowa, Mr. Leavell was born in Appanoose county, May 1, 1858, a son of Benjamin W. and Susannah (Whistler) Leavell, both of whom were of American birth. The father died in 1866. The mother a native of Virginia, long survived him and passed away in Idaho in 1903. One son of the family, Jefferson Leavell, was a soldier of the Civil war and died at Jefferson barracks, near St. Louis, Missouri, while still in the army.
…..The educational opportunities of B. F. Leavell were rather meager, being limited to not more than three terms in the common schools at intermittent periods, as his mother had been left a widow when he was but eight years of age, and as he was the eldest of her children responsibilities in connection with the support of the family devolved upon him when he was still quite young. On attaining his majority he engaged in the restaurant business and also began merchandising at Moulton, Iowa, meeting with substantial success in the conduct of his store. After six months, however, he sold the business owing to ill health, which caused him to leave that section of the country. He removed to eastern Kansas, where he took up the occupation of farming upon rented land and for seventeen years successfully carried on general agricultural pursuits. In 1900 he came to Idaho and purchased a ranch between Caldwell and Boise, south of Star. He afterward disposed of that property and homesteaded two miles south of Wilder, on the Boise-Payette project. He has since rented his farm for a term of years and is now engaged in the real estate business in Caldwell, putting forth every effort to locate families in good homes, where success will attend their efforts and contribute to the development of the country. He possesses both the knowledge and land to accomplish his purpose in this connection and has already succeeded in bringing many families to this section of the state, his labors thereby proving an element in the development of Idaho.
….. In 1881 Mr. Leavell was married to Miss Flora Markley, of Iowa, and they are the parents of eight children: Ray O., who is married and has two children; Grace I., who is married and has one child; Louis I., who is married and has four children; Susie M., who is married and has one son; Frank M., who is married and lost one child; Sylvia, who is married and has one daughter; Oliver M., who enlisted on his twenty-first birthday, in the Sixty-ninth Coast Artillery on September 5, 1918; and Essie, who is attending high school. Mr. Leavell sought the opportunities of the west and has made an attractive home for himself and family, while in the conduct of his business affairs he has met with substantial results.

OneWorldTree at ancestry.com lists William S. Level married to a Harriet S. and father of Cynthia E., born 9 Aug 1847 Missouri, married Matt Edmonds 1864 in Whitecloud, [county], Kansas, USA. Matt was Born: 9 Aug 1840 in Chepstow, Monmouthshire, [county], England and died: 11 Nov 1915 in Mclouth, Jefferson, Kansas, USA. Cynthia died: 1 Jan 1926 Valley Falls, Jefferson, Kansas, USA . Cynthia's siblings seem to match the children we have listed for William. Her father William was born 14 May 1819 in Bullitt, KY, and died 23 Aug 1872 Barr, Daviess, Indiana, USA. Kids listed:
Children Sex Birth
James B Leavell M
Sarah Leavell F abt 1846 in Liberty, Jefferson, Iowa, USA
Martha E Levalley F abt 1846 in Liberty, Jefferson, Iowa, USA
Cynthia Leavell F abt 1848 in Liberty, Jefferson, Iowa, USA

Elsey Leavell F abt 1858 in [city], [county], Indiana, USA
John Leavell M May 1860 in [city], [county], Indiana, USA
I think they've confused two different William Level/Leavell lines and mashed them together

The Reyes Family Tree at ancestry.com says William died August 23, 1872 in Barr, Daviess, Indiana, but his wife remarried before that, so he would have to have divorced her. No source is given. This tree also has him born in Bullitt, Kentucky, but his father was living in Henry County, Indiana, before his birth, so this, too, seems wrong.

CORNELIUS G. LEAVELL was one of the most practical and successful farmers of Fayette County, his farm in Madison Township being one of the finest in that vicinity. His birth occurred November 7, 1825, on the farm where his last days were spent. He was the son of John and Cynthia (Hedges) Leavell, both of whom were natives of Virginia. The father was born in 1774, and when thirteen years of age, started for Kentucky in company with his parents. the Indians being very hostile, the grandmother became alarmed and the party then stopped in Greenbrier County, Va., where the grandfather departed this life. The next year they floated down the Kanawha River, and located near Lexington, Ky., soon after which the mother met her death by a tree falling upon her. The grandfather was a soldier in the Revolutionary army, serving through the entire conflict.
.....The father of our subject in 1797 came to Ohio, and located either in Ross or Pickaway County. He was married in the last-named county in 1822, soon after which he took up his abode in this county. His estate, which originally comprised ninety-eight acres, was added to from time to time, until at his death Mr. Leavell was the possessor of nine hundred and sixty-eight broad acres.
.....Of the eight children comprising the parental family, our subject was the third in order of birth. He was given a fair education in the district school, and, when reaching his majority, began to battle with life on his own account, farming on property which had been given to him by his father. April 17, 1849, he was married to Miss Emma, a daughter of James and Mary (Harr) Phillips, who was born in Chillicothe May 23, 1829. Mr. Leavell inherited one hundred and forty acres of land from his father and added to that tract until at his death, which occurred April 12, 1892, his estate included seven hundred acres. On this property is located the old log house which was erected in 1816.
.....To Mr. and Mrs. Leavell were granted a family of two children: John P., who was born March 25, 1850, is a graduate of the Ohio Medical College at Cincinnati but did not long follow his profession on account of ill health, and is now farming in Fayette County. He is married, and has two children. Benjamin Ward, who was born May 12, 1856, is also engaged in farming in Madison Township, is married and has three children. He of whom we write in politics was a true-blue Republican, and in township affairs had been Trustee, Clerk and Treasurer, and had represented his party in various county and State conventions.
HISTORY OF FAYETTE COUNTY, OHIO (1881), R. S. Dills, page 955:
C.G. LEAVELL
...Cornelius Gaines Leavell, farmer, was born in this township, November 7, 1825, and is the first son and second child of John and Cynthia (Hedges) Leavell. His parents came to Ohio in 1797, from Virginia. To them were born Mary Ann, Cornelius G., John Bolivar, Benjamin Franklin, Nancy, Melinda, and Hannah Elizabeth.
...Our subject was married, April 17, 1849, to Emma Harr, youngest daughter of James and Mary Harr, of Ross County. She was born in that county, May 23, 1829. Her parents had born to them six children: Elizabeth, James, William, Mary, Martha, and Emma.
...To this union two children have been born: John P., born March 25, 1850, married Frankie Gamble, of this county, June 16, 1878; Benjamin W., born May 12, 1856, married Inez G. Clarridge, October, 1880.
...Our subject has resided in this township all his life, and has given his time and energies to hard work and legitimate trade, accumulating one hundred and thirty-five acres of land in Union, and give hundred and seventy-six acres in this township, and is one of the heaviest tax-payers of the township. He has, in years past, served the township as trustee, treasurer, and cleark, and in his official character was noted for honesty and efficiency. He pays considerable attention to affairs of a public character, is a constant reader, and for twenty years past has taken a daily paper. His politics are of the staunch Republican sort, a fact made prominent in all the later years of his life.

ROBERT J. LEAVEL, resides on section 35 of Jackson Township. He was born in Knox County, Ohio, March 8,1840. His parents, Joseph and Harriet C. (Beans) Leavel, were born and reared in Virginia, removing a few years later to Ohio, where his father was engaged in the milling business many years. He also owned a farm which was worked by renters. There were thirteen children only four of whom are now living. They settled in Monroe County, Iowa, in 1852, where Joseph Leavel improved a farm, and also followed milling.
.....In 1858 the family came to Clarke County and settled in Jackson township, where they improved a farm. The mother died a month later. The father disposed of his property in 1860, and for a few years engaged in the saw-mill business in Lucas County. He then removed to Wayne County, where he now resides near Humiston, and follows bee-keeping. The names of the children are--Rebecca, wife of William Johnson; Margaret, wife of David Ulm; Joseph and Robert J., the subject of this sketch. Joseph was a babe at the time of his mother's death, and was afterward adopted by John Baldwin.
.....September 12, 1861, Robert enlisted in Company I, Eighth Iowa Volunteers. He was engaged in the battle of Shiloh, in the division of General Prentiss, and with that gallant commander was captured May 6, 1862, and was held prisoner two months and eight days, confined most of the time in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. Having been paroled and exchanged in February, 1863, he rejoined his regiment. He participated in the siege of Vicksburg, and the following winter visited home on veteran furlough. At the time General Forrest raided Memphis, Mr. Leavel again became a prisoner, and thirty-eight days later was exchanged. He was engaged in the siege of Mobile, and his regiment, the gallant Iowa Eighth, was the first to enter Spanish Fort. He was honorably discharged at Selma, Alabama, in April, 1866, and now receives a pension for disability contracted in the army.
.....After returning to Monroe County, he went to Lucas County, and July 2, 1868, married Miss Martha Wells, daughter of Thomas and Mary Wells, who came from Virginia that same year; they now live in the village of Woodburn. Mrs. Leavel was born in Marion County, West Virginia, April 20, 1840. Mr. and Mrs. Leavel lived two years in Jackson Township, Lucas County, then returned to Clarke County, where Mr. Leavel engaged in farming. In 1873 they removed to Hamilton County, Nebraska, where they remained two years, then returned to their old home in Jackson township. They moved to their present home in February, 1881, where they own forty acres of land.
.....They have had one child, that died in infancy. Mr. Leavel is a member of the Grand Army of the Republic, Davenport Post, No. 385, at Woodburn. In politics he is a Republican.

Morgan's son wrote a letter dated Feb. 18, 1941 in Fairmont, Virginia to his children Morgan, Francis, and Martha, signing it "Your Pop." It was an informative letter re: the Levelle name.heritage; he said he spoke with a W. F. Horn of Topeka, Kansas, who was compiling the history and turning it into two volumes of 450 pages each. At that time, Mr. Horn was 79 years old. [See my page on the infamous Horn genealogy fraud.]
