The Tibbits ms. (1910) traces
descendants of John's 1st son Christopher.
It also mentions a few descendants of John's 2nd son John Jr.
The Day-Minnich ms. (1930) lists Bible records from the family of
John's 2nd son John Jr.
3. The D. W. LeValley letter (1910) traces a few descendants of John's 3rd son Peleg.
The Leslie LaValley charts
(1939/1992) trace other descendants of John's 3rd son Peleg.
They also trace one line descended from John's 4th son Cook.
5. The Church ms. (c.1916/1956) traces more descendants of John's 4th son Cook.
From his second marriage, John had two more sons. The first, a younger Christopher named after his recently deceased half-brother, died without children. No single document has been found on descendants of the youngest son, Gardner Thurston LeValley--who should not be confused with his grandnephew, S. Gardner LeValley.
Note--Any comments or corrections by me are in brackets. Three dots mean that additional details about a possibly living person have been left off this web page.
these documents were written
in 1910 at the request of Nancy LeValley Eichholtz. Paul LeValley
now has the originals.
1. THE TIBBITS MANUSCRIPT
[This document, dictated by Marion LeValley, but written by her nephew Douglas Tibbits Jr., lists bits of information in no particular order. Generations are sometimes indicated with numbers, elsewhere with letters--which should not be mistaken for middle initials. The manuscript falls into three parts: a letter (here divided into separate paragraphs), a copy of a wedding certificate, and lists of parents with their children. A few corrections by Nancy Eichholtz are in italics.]Dec. 24, 1910. Dear Cousin. Your favor of the 3rd at hand, & in reply will say that Aunt Marion is in very poor health, & unable to reply. So, at her request, I will try to answer your questions, as far as I am able.
We think [his son George Thomas LeValley's first wife] Esther Amsden's sister Laura married Wm. Childs. We do not know just where the Whitneys connect.
Cynthia Tibbits (a sister of John R. S. Tibbits) married Lyman Amsden (a brother of Esther).
Christopher4 LeV. [son of John's 2nd son John Jr. He was a nephew of the ChristopherA mentioned everywhere else in this document.] of Shelby Basin N.Y. was the father of the Flint [Michigan] line. His widow (Lydia) married a Mr. Bigford [Bickford].
GardnerC LeV's. widow (Sarah) married a Mr. Brazee & had 2 sons, William & Andrew who would therefore be half brothers to MarrillaD LeV. who married Henry Keyes.
Great grandfather JamesB LeV. had a sister named EuniceB who married Mr. Thomas Madison [Matteson]. They had a son & a daugher named like their parents.
JamesB also had a half sister, an old maid named Esther Tingley. Therefore the widow of ChristopherA LeV. of Warwick probably married a Tingley.
We are in doubt as to the names of JamesB LeV's. brothers, But think they were Monroe & George. [Wrong. They were George and yet another Christopher. Moreau--not Monroe--was George's son.]
Now will you kindly answer a few questions? 1st. What LeValley named his 3 sons like the vowels? That is he named them Ara, Era, & Ira? [Answer: Holden] 2nd. What relation is Christopher of Shelby Basin to Christopher of Warwick? [Answer: nephew]
JohnC Cook [LeValley] has been heard to speak of Uncle Holden [son of John's 2nd son John Jr.--and therefore the cousin, rather than brother, of John Cook LeValley's father James].
I think this is about all we can tell you. If we hear of anything of interest, will let you know. hoping to hear from you soon & wishing you a Merry Christmas. I remain as ever your cousin-- Douglas Tibbits. P.O. Box-60, Columbiaville, Lapeer Co., Mich.

THE DAY-MINNICH MANUSCRIPT
appears to be the Bible record of John Jr. and his son
Christopher. The amazing
thing about the document is that it did not come down through descendants, but passed
back and forth between very, very distantly related cousins who knew none of these
people. Warren Welch has the paper that Mary Lovell Minnich (a descendant of the
original Peter's son Michael) copied in 1930 from a document that had somehow fallen
into the hands of Mary LeValley Day (a descendant of the original Peter's son Peter).

3. THE D. W. LEVALLEY LETTER
[D. Wilford LeValley and his wife were lawyers in Saginaw, Michigan. As a genealogical researcher, he published a chart of the British royal family.]
ATTORNEY AT LAW
SAGINAW, MICH......Oct. 31, 1910
Nannie LeValley Eichholtz
725 Alvarado S.
Los Angeles, Cal.
Your letter of 24th inst. to my wife, asking information regarding my branch of the LeValley genealogy has been handed to me for reply. As you trace back to Rhode Island, there can be little doubt but that we are of the same stock. Back to my great-great grandfather I can give positive information, from the army records in Washington, D. C., & personal testimony (affidavit of my aunt [Esther LeValley Murray], now deceased who knew him & was able to testify to all his descendants in my chain of ancestry.) The other information, that I venture to state, is from family tradition. The Pension Department record at Washington, D. C., Old War & Navy Division, shows that Peleg LeValley (my great-grandfather) served in the War of the American Revolution; that he was born at Warwick, R. I. 1759. Entered military service 1776, as Private, & served 3 months, in R. I. Militia. His captain, Malachi Hammett, his Colonel was Potter.
Served again 1 month, Mar. 1777. (Lieutenant Anthony Holden, Col. Lowe)
Served again 1 month, Oct. 1777. (Capt. Thos. Rice, Col. Lowe)
Again 1 mo. (same officers) 1778.
Fall 1778, served 15 days. (Capt. Miller).
Engaged in Battle of Newport Islands.
His residence at enlistment, Warwick, R. I.
Applied for pension Oct. 3, 1832.
Then resided at Summit, Schoharie Co. N. Y.
Age at date of application 73 yrs.
Since obtaining the foregoing information from the Coimmissioner of Pensions, I was in Washington & there made copies which I have lost or mislaid, but I found an affidavit by Cook LeValley, brother of Peleg. but I have no other positive proof of other members of his family, nor do I know the given name of his father.
The exact date of his death is in the records, but I do not recall it. but I think that he was 74 yrs old at death.
His wife's name was Rebecca, but I am not sure whether it was Johnson [It was Northrup], or whether her mother's name was Johnson, but think that I could find out. --At any rate she was very proud of her Johnson blood, expecially because her cousin, General Richard M. Johnson, killed the great Indian Chief, Tecumseh. --The fact that Richard M. became Vice-President of the U. S., was not of so much importance to her.
They had a daughter Abigail, who married Patrick Conley, and went to Ashtabula, Ohio, a son, Roderic, who moved to Sullivan Co. N. Y. bought 1000 acres of land & built a saw mill, a son, Hiram, who settled in Delaware Co. N. Y., a daughter, Polly, who remained at Summit, another daughter, Esther, married Morgan Andrews, & John LeValley, remained at Summit, and another son, James LeValley, who was my grandfather.
James LeValley was born N. Y., 1800. died in Missouri, 1871.
He married Elizabeth Ostrander. They lived in N. Y. state until in old age they moved with their two daughters & husbands to Missouri (about 1867). They had children, as follows: Elnora, Victoria, Levi, Esther, & Sarah
and one other who died young.
inserted Elnora's name with a caret when he crossed out this phrase.]
Levi LeValley (my father) was born in Schoharie Co. N. Y. July 16, 1827. died at Vassar, Mich. Aug. 3, 1897.
He married Candis C. Firmau Jan. 4, 1853. They had two sons.
Wilford David Wilford LeValley, of Saginaw, Mich. born Dec. 7,
1854, at Boonville, Oneida Co. N. Y. and Dr. Frank Duane LeValley (now
of Vassar, Mich.) born Oct. 11, 1857, in Boonville, N. Y.
In addition to the
facts capable of absolute proof, I will relate the family record as
down to me by word of mouth, and family traditions. As I have
told, the father [grandfather] of Peleg & Cook LeValley came from
--was a silk merchant, was robbed by pirates, --landed at Rhode
--Afterwards returned to France, then again came to Rhode Island, went
into business there. --Married a
of American birth, probably of English ancestry. --had several
became manufacturers. (Don't think this point regarding
was in this family tradition, but from a source seeming
which makes it probable, information obtained about 1870.) [The
at Ionia MI recorded that their ancestor John Jr. manufactured
Their version of the pirate story was also close to this one.]
conducted cotton mills in both R. I. & Connecticut.
[In the next generation] The family were in some way related to the Cook Family. --And the fact that one son was named Cook LeValley has led me to congecture that the mother of Peleg LeValley & Cook LeValley was a Cook. There was a family tradition that they were related to Captain Cook the English navigator.
I had wondered if
this ancestor was a Huguenot, for all of my ancestors, so far as
were Protestants; While most Frenchmen & all by the name of
here in Saginaw, except myself, are Roman Catholics. Your letter
clears up that piont. You also give the date 1727 as the time
he was there [Warwick RI]. You observe that Peleg LeValley was
in 1759, as War Records show.
Any special information respecting the ancestors prior to Peleg LeValley will be thankfully received. --Would like to know the names of his father & mother in full if possible.
Warwick, R. I. is surely the place where they lived in
D. W. LeValley
documents have been
typed faithfully. But the next two manuscripts are hand-drawn
I hesitate to scan them in visually because:
a. They contain too many inaccuracies that need commentary, and
b. They sometimes reveal too much information about living persons.
So I have decided to type them, keeping the order and notations as close as possible to the original manuscripts.]

Part 2--Descendants of James Nelson's son George Cook LeValley.
Part 3--Descendants of James McPique, a Church ancestor (omitted here).
I have also omitted several obsolete street addresses, but kept notations of cities. My copy has been heavily updated by Herbert Church's cousin, Dorothy LeValley Otterson. Where I can distinguish between the two sets of handwriting, and where the added information does not infringe on living persons, I have put her annotations in italics.]

Note A: The story as I heard it from my mother: Traded estate in France for one or two vessels to trade with the American colonies. Encountered storms, dismasted, and foundered on Rhode Island shore. Traded hulls for Rhode Island land. The nurse who took care of my mother before her deaath was from the East, and her husband from a part of Rhode Island where Le or LaValley was a common name. His best man at the wedding was George LaValley. At one time I was associated with a LaValley from Wilkesbarre, Pa. [probably Daniel's family], but he knew nothing of his LaValley antecedents. Later the original or the next generation [actually the third] moved to the Mohawk Valley (Scoharie County) New York, a Huguenot settlement.
Note B: Cook LeValley enlisted on the last call for volunteers before the close of the Revolutionary War when sixteen years old, and served as a drummer boy for about six months. Some mention once that he either served in Massachussetts or with Massachusetts troops.
Note C: James Nelson LeValley moved to a day's wagon ride from Wilkesbarre, Pa., when his son George was ten years old.
Note D: George Slocum. "Should have been sent to the pen, but he is my sister's child and I can't do anything," said his uncle George Cook LeV. Brought family to Knox County, Illinois, ran off, wife pregnant and baby born in poor house.
E: Two of these boys deaf
and dumb. [Wrong. It was their brother William and their
Harriet, who married William Snyder and had four children.]
C. attributed it to their father's life. [More likely, inbreeding
of cousins had something to do with it.]
