Georgia K. Bopp Research Notes:

 

1. Levin Nelson English, b. 25 Mar 1792 in Near Laurel, near Baltimore, MD, (son of Thomas English and Rebecca Nelson) d. 1876 in Salem, OR. Lester English adds this after Mary's information but I think it applies to Levin: "Lived in Macoripin Co., Illinois in 1832. Was in Black Hawk Indian War 1831. Moved to Burlington, Iowa in 1835 or 36. Moved from there to Davis CO., Iowa, when? Crossed the plains to the Oregon Country in 1845. Also was in the War of 1812."

Migration pattern appears to be MD, KY (married Mary), IL, Iowa, OR. Apparently the whole family went to Oregon ca. 1845; Mary died, Levin remarried and had more children.

Lester fits somewhere in this line. In Feb. 1973 his address was 38 19th NW., Wenatchee, WA, 98801. Karen English Chaney tried to find him in 1992 but was not able to locate him.

He married (1) Mary Tucker, 1810 in KY, b. 1794 in Bardstown, KY, d. 16 Feb 1851 in Marion Co., OR. Mary: Lester English has "1st marriage." after Mary's name. Lester's birth year for Mary is 1794; Maire's 1790. Maire notes death year as 1850. Lester says married 1810; Maire notes 1812 Henry Co., KY.

 
 

12. xi Robert W. English, b. 1838 in Iowa.

He married (2) Mary Tate Daley, -.2 Mary: 1956 letter in English surname file at Kentucky Historical Society from descendant Mrs. Wm. E. Brown, 3814 Edmunds St., Seattle 8, Wash, says Levin enlisted in New Castle, Henry Co., KY; served as private in Capt. Ed George's Co. of KY Militia; married Tucker in KY (she died in 1850 in OR), married 2nd Mary Dailey. Levin may have been known as "King English" but she's not sure. Levin and 2nd wife are Mrs. Brown's great grandparents. Mrs. Brown says her mother, age 83, and all five of her sisters are still living (1956).
