    Per Everett Leavell, John ( 1720-1880 ) was in the Rev.War under Col. Burwell. He left Va. for Ky. but died in Greenbrier County, Virginia, before reaching Ky. and is buried there. His family continued to Ky. then to Ohio and onto Indiana. He married 1-Milley Walden & 2-Mary Smith. But J. Everett Leavell has him as the son of Jean Levelle, not Edward.

    James Steed in his World Tree at claims this is "John Peter Leavell," born abt. 1735: "The 12th December, 1735, was born Jean Villain, son of Jean Vilain, the younger, and of Philipe, his wife; had for godfather, Jean Vilain, his grandfather; for godmother, Charlote Chastain. - Jean Chastain." He adds "Father: John (Jean) Peter LE VILLAIN b: Abt 1662 in Jessy,Lower Normandy,France
    Mother: Philipe DUPUY b: Abt 1700."

    Given comparative birthdates, is it likely that Burwell is the son of this couple?
