Descendants of Tom Leavell and Julia A. Logan


by Jane A. Leavell

Generation No. 1

1. TOM LEAVELL. Or is this right? I don't have any documentation yet showing this man's existence. There IS an Ephraim Leavell, born about 1820, with a son Tom born in 1866, living in Garrard County, Kentucky; could HE be the progenitor of this family?

Is this he?
