Re: DUVALL of Fredk. Co., MD, Militia in the War of 1812
Marilyn:Thanks so much for the Duvall information. It added some more information and confired others I have found - most beneficial are the familly/surname marriage connections.Some key ones there as Ijams & Waters and even several others possibly seem to be kin or connected somehow. No, I do not have any more significant information except that George? Lefever surved under one or two Duvall in the war of 1812 (but by then my John Lefever was away in Antis Twp., PA with a family and Jacob Lefever & all or most of the other Lefever brothers (7 total) and Nimrod Duvall had gone to SW Ohio by 1806.
I have finally sent a little money to Anne Cissel, professional historian, Thurmont for help an Nimrod and Mary Salome _____, wife of Elias Lefever born 1743.
I appreciate your help & I will keep pecking away on these mysteries.
Amazing how certain families stayed together: Ijams married to Manley & Manley are in the same communicants list as my John Lefever in PA 1814 and in 1863 a Maria Manley attests to a civil war widow penison application of wife of my Daniel Lefever in Iowa.
And Lefever land sold by heirs of Christian Lefever (officer in American Revolution, German Battalion, under Charles Baltzell & Thomas Johnson) in Frederick 1801 to George Butt Sr. & Jr. -By 1863 in Ohio, a George Butt owns land the above John Lefever purchased there in 1832.
