IRISH LEAVELLS


by Jane A. Leavell

Irish families often spell it "Lavalle" or "Lavelle."

Lavelle Surname Origin
Posted by: Joseph Lavelle (jmlaval at banet.net) Date: August 15, 1999 at 07:56:07
Lavelle, O'Mulfaal

Different as they sound in English Lavelle and Mulfaal are both anglicized forms of the Irish O'Maolfabhail. This has been further disguised in some places under the form Melville, an aristocratic sounding surname which has also been adopted by some Mulvihils anxious to hide their Gaelic ancestry.

Lavelle is the usual form: it is of frequent occurrence in Connacht, particularly in County Mayo, where Lawell is a variant of Lavelle.

The families of O'Maolfabhail who are now know as Lavelle are of the sept originally seated at Donaghpatrick in the barony of Clare (County Galway). Hardiman, writing in 1846, says that the anglicized form Lavelle was then coming into use, the name being at that time normally O'Mullawill. It should be noted, however, that O'Lawell, O'Lowell and O'Lavell appear in the seventeenth century Hearth Money Rolls for County Armagh.

Families named Lavelle, until recently, resided almost exclusively in Connacht and mostly in County Mayo. Descendants of the O'Maolfabhail sept who established themselves in County Donegal took the surname Fall.

4. WILLIAM F. LEVEL (JAMES)was born October 29, 1832 in Organ Cave, Greenbrier County, VA, and died September 11, 1862 in Fayetteville, Fayette, Virginia. He married SARAH RUTH GIBSON February 07, 1856, daughter of ROBERT GIBSON and MARY SPOTTS. She was born Abt. 1836, and died September 22, 1927 in Greenbrier County, West Virginia. Sarah Ruth died of colitis. Burial: September 23, 1927, Salem Cemetery, Organ Cave, Greenbrier, WVA. William F.'s death record says he died of "explosion of a shell." Enlisted at White Sulphur Springs, Virginia (now West Virginia) as a Corporal in Company B 26 Virginia Battalion Infantry on April 29, 1862. Company B was Captain Read's Company of Edgar Battalion Infantry. Killed by explosion of an artillery shell in Battle of Fayetteville on September 10, 1862. There's a marker for him in Vandalia Cemetery, Fayetteville, Fayette, West Virginia, USA

Notes for WILLIAM F. LEVEL:
1869 Greenbrier Co. VA census (later WVA):
William is 27, farmer, $6000 real estate, $950 personal, born VA; Sarah, 25, VA; Robert A., 4, VA; Mary J., 2, VA; Saml. S., 9/12, VA; James, 68, Ireland; Susan Mops, 14, VA

William Francis Level, a corporal in the Confederate army, was killed in the battle of Fayetteville, VA, in 1862. His wife Sarah was a strong mountain woman (who smoked a pipe!); with the aid of several slaves (not something that we're proud of) and a farm manager, she managed to take care of her large log house and to keep the 600 acre farm (located at Organ Cave, near Roncevert, VA) going. According to family tradition, it was the farm manager who fathered her last two daughters, Annie Susan and Ada Gray, even though they both carried the Level name. No one that I'm in touch with who is still living remembers the name of the farm manager. This was information I had to obtain from my adopted Uncle Jack, who was, by birth, a cousin of my mother; while my father put the bare facts into the genealogy, neither of my parents ever spoke of this, Mom probably out of embarrasement over what she conisdered to be the awkwardness of the situation, and Dad out of respect for Mom.

Notes for ROBERT ADAIR LEVEL:

Robert A. Level [pub 1917]
.....The Level family are one of Irish descent. The first one of that name to settle in Greenbrier county was James Level, but just when he emigrated to America is not definitely known. It was after the War of 1812. A residence was taken up by him where Charles Beckner now lives, two miles west of Ronceverte. He first wife was Miss Mary McClure. Children born to this union were: Margaret, born in 1822; David M., January 1, 1824; George, November 9, 1825; Elizabeth N., 1828; and William F., a half brother, whose mother was Miss Mary Adair, who was his second wife. William Level, the youngest son, was born October 29, 1832. George Level is the only member of the family now living. He was a Mexican soldier, and, notwithstanding he was shot through the head, is still living at the advanced age of ninety-two years. The ball entered the eye, and passing through the head, came out at the back of his neck. He is a resident of [ ], Mo. William Level entered the Confederate service early in the strife and was killed in 1862 at the battle of Fayetteville, W. Va. His wife was a Miss Sarah Gibson, daughter of Robert H. Gibson and Mary Spotts. They were married February 7, 1856, and to this union were born two children: Robert A. Level and his sister, Mary J. The mother, now in her eighty-second year, still survives.
.....Robert A. Level, like his father and grandfather before him, is a farmer and stock raiser. He lives on the old Level homestead in the Irish Corner district, near Organ Cave. The old house, erected over seventy-five years ago, was a veritable mansion in its day, and as to things substantial and comfortable is not second to some others more palatial of these later times. The farm consists of 300 acres of choice lands, purchased by James Level in 1840. It originally belonged to the Dr. Creigh estate and was bought for $1,400.
.....On May 23, 1878, Robert A. Level married Johanna Hogsett, daughter of Hugh and Nancy J. (Robinson) Hogsett, of Monroe county, and the children born to this union were: (1) William H., born February 18, 1870; his wife was Miss Mayme Boone, daughter of William A. Boone. No children. He lives at Oak Hill, Fayette county, West Virginia, and is a traveling salesman for a commercial house. (2) Mary Della, born September 114, 1880, died March 4, 1893. (3) George Wallace, born March 7, 1882, married Margaret Pinkney Boone, daughter of J. H. Boone, and to this union were born five children living and one dead: Madge, James Robert, Kathleen, Wallace and William. (4) Florence Ufa, born January 27, 1884; married Charles Addison Van Stavern and lives in Sinks Grove, Monroe county. They have two children, Elizabeth and Polly. (5) Lora Adair, born April 27, 1887, died December 26, 1899. (6) Margaret Ruth, born September 16, 1890. (7) Clara Jane, born July 8, 1895.
.....As one of the successful farmers of the county, Robert A. Level has been frequently selected as one of its representative citizens, and his name at this time appears on the Democratic ticket as a candidate for deputy sherif.

Posted by Robert Brunet on Tue, 28 Sep 1999
Surname: Lynch, Level, Bushel, McCarhty, Brunet
Edward Lynch married Jane Level in county Leitrim. Ireland {no date}. They had a son named Denis who married Bridget Bushel in Montreal on April 30, 1855. Their son, also named Denis, married Catherine McCarthy in Montreal on April 26,1887. Their daughter Mable {my grandmother} married Leon Brunet [my grandfather] in Montreal Feb. 22, 1916. Thats all I have. I would like to trace this line more in Ireland. Can anyone shed some light on this for me? Thank you.

JANE LEVEL
Posted by Robert Brunet on Tue, 28 Sep 1999
Edward Lynch married Jane Level in county Leitrim Ireland {no date}. They had a son named Denis who married Bridget Bushel in Montreal on April 30, 1855. Their son, also named Denis, married Catherine McCarthy in Montreal on April 26,1887. Their daughter Mable {my grandmother} married Leon Brunet [my grandfather] in Montreal Feb. 22, 1916. Thats all I have. I would like to trace this line more in Ireland. Can anyone shed some light on this for me? Thank you.

MARTIN B. LAVELLE
Posted by James D. Thomas on Sun, 12 Jul 1998
Martin B. Lavel/Lavelle married Bridget Ward in Honesdale at St. John's on 11 May 1850. Soon moved to Scranton, PA and lived out their lives there. Martin was a witness to marriage of Michael Gallagher and Fanny O'Healy(?)on 24 February 1850. The witnesses for the Lavelle/Ward marriage were Michael McLaughlin and Catherina Ward. Have Lavelle line forward, but not back, and would like to track the Ward line. Bridget's father and/or brother may have been Dennis Ward.
