Admiral Schley a descendant?
Owen Edgar LeFevre b. 1848 d March 28, 1921 was a Judge who did much genealogical research on Lefevres. He is # 11-604 in the book, The Pennsylvania Lefevres, on page 61. In 1908 he wrote "The LeFevre Family'. The book is in the posetion of the Troy, Ohio Historical Society.I have an xerox copy of this work.I believe that he visited the compilers of the PA LeFevre book.
He claims that Admiral W. Scott Schley was a LeFevre descendant, which I cannot prove. This Shley had a father named John Thomas Schley. Both were born in Maryland and in the area where my people, descendants of Daniel Lefever born 1713 # 7-003 lived.One of Daniels's grandchildren (Jacob) was raised by "uncle Major Baltzell. A Balsel or widow Baltsell married early a Schley.
I cannot prove any connection of Lefever to either of these surnames.By the way, I found that Owen had his own great grandfather incorrect. It was not Christian - it was Elias Lefever born 1743 # 6-014. He had several others in SW Ohio in the early 1800's incorrect also.Help me on Baltsell & Schley please.
