We are dealing with 3 boys placed in St Thomas Orphan Asylum by Bishop Spaulding of Louisville. Family tradition is John Oliver's name was Oliver Augusta & changed at the orphange; his father worked on the river between Louisville & New Orleans. Have not found the 1850 Mortality Schedule for Jefferson Co, Ky so don't know what it would show.
HOWEVER: In "our" Hagan Line is Rebecca Lavielle, w/o Ralph Hagan (born Charles Co, Md;d 1826 Nelson Co)-she of Calvert Co, MD. Went looking for Lavielle. Found name is: Lavielle, Levielle, Levell, Leville, Laville, LaVille (1930 Colorado).
