No matter how the name is spelled, we are ALL related.
There will be a Rounsavall/Rounsaville (any spelling) Family Reunion held in Grenada, Miss (On I-55 between Memphis, TN and Jackson, MS) on June 2-3,2001.Contact Mrs. Betty Rounsaville Miller, 196 Airport Circle; Grenada, MS38901-8845 - Phone:662-226-6975 for information.
Mostly, we descend from David Rounsavall who married Brigida Heaton/Hayton/Eaton, who fought Indians in the Holston Valley of VA in 1776and then went on Col. John Donaldson's "Flotilla" 1779-80, to build and defend Ft. Nashboro, now Nashville, TN.Their children were:James Rounsavall; Lucinda m. Mr. Gordon in SC; Isaac m. Anna Goddard; Josiah m.Jane Moore; Elizabeth m. Benjamin Drake; Amos m. Elizabeth Thomas and Robert Rounsaville m. Elizabeth Downey in Baton Rouge, LA (West Florida).
If anyone has PROOF that these children are indeed the children of David and Brigida, especially Amos, PLEASE bring it with you.I'm trying to have David approved by DAR and they want "PROOF" that these are David and Brigida's children. I will bring a copy machine for the use of the cousins who wish to make copies of any material brought to the reunion.
Any member of the Rounsavall/Rounsaville (any spelling) family is welcome to attend this reunion.We would love to meet our cousins.
