Re: Elias Lefever # 8-014 had 7 sons
I'm a FULTON hunter unraveling years of FULTON misinformation. (Similar to your LeFevre quest.) I recently posted replies to your inquiry on the FULTON Genforum. (Re: Balzell/Baltzell descendants of Robert and Margaret (-?-) FULTON of Monocacy Manor, Frederick Co, MD.)
I've studied your shared messages here on Genforum, especially those describing the LeFevre and Ferree families of Lancaster Co, PA. The name "LeFevre" DOES appear in another Fulton family of Lancaster County and I'm curious whether this is coincidence or kinship. Perhaps you can assist?

John and Elizabeth (Harris) Fulton came to America from [Northern] Ireland around 1772. They settled somewhere (?) near Lancaster Towne, Lancaster Co, PA. Elizabeth (Harris) Fulton ran a "select school" for young ladies.
The Fultons brought five children to America:
1. Samuel Fulton
2. Sarah Fulton
3. Elizabeth Fulton
4. Margaret Fulton
5. Jane Fulton
Jane Fulton, the youngest daughter, was born Aug 1768 at Rathmelton, Co. Donegal, Ireland, and she grew up in Lancaster Towne. Jane Fulton married 1 Sep 1791 at St. James Episcopal Church in Lancaster, Capt. Samuel Moore, and their daughter, Lydia Moore, b 24 Jan 1794 at Lancaster, married 17 June 1813, John Reynolds of Lancaster.
John Reynolds was the proprietor and editor of the "Lancaster Journal" (1820-1834) and, later took over as manager of the Cornwall Furnace.
John and Lydia (Moore) Reynolds were parents to 13 children -- here are the distinctive names of four sons:
Samuel Moore Reynolds, 1814-1888
William Reynolds, 1815-1879
John Fulton Reynolds, 1820-1863 (d Gettysburg)
James LeFevre Reynolds, b 8 Mar 1822, d 5 Apr 1880

OK, Morris. Who is the namesake for James LeFevre Reynolds, b 1822? Or, who "could" be the namesake?
