Excerpts taken from the “County Scott and its Mountain Folk” by Esther Sharp Sanderson published in 1958 reads in part::
“The Llewellyns –  William, John and Leutian were sons of Grant Llewellyn, who came directly from Wales.   After the Llewellyn clans, who ruled Wales, were overcome by English rulers, they were banished to North Carolina.   The sons came from there over the Wilderness Road, thence through the gap of the mountains to Smokey.   John and William served through the Civil War with the Union Forces.   After they returned, William married Elizabeth Hembree.   They resided in Huntsville until their deaths.   “Aunt Betty” as she was commonly called, was a charter member of the Presbyterian Church in Huntsville which was organized in 1882.”

“…’Shade’ Lewallen, a Scott County Welchman, fought in the Battle of New Orleans under Andrew Jackson.   It was a favorite pastime for Shade to tell his nephews, Bill, John and Leutian about ‘Jackson’s War’ and how the Tennessee boys in buckskin rallied around Old Andy at ‘Orleans’.   His grave is in the oldest cemetery in Huntsville, beside the Presbyterian Academy lot …”

I'm confused about the Andrew Lewallens above.   I found a posting on GenForum stating he was born 1824 Morgan County, Tennessee, and died 1915.  

The birth year would fit the Andrew Russell Lewallen, son of Andrew L. Lewallen, but the date of death would fit the Andrew Lewallen who was born 1842 and died in Temple County, Texas, son of   John who was the first Sheriff.  

My guess is that there was a mix-up by the person posting on GenForum and it should be the Andrew Russell Lewallen, son of Andrew L. Lewallen who was John's brother, but perhaps someone can clarify this for me.

Billie Harris - Apr 3, 2009

For the record, John Lewallen (first sheriff of Scott County), his wife Louisa, and their son Campbell, are all shown in the 1870 Wayne County, KY. census.   Wayne County   KY borders Scott County, TN

Dorothy Campbell - Apr 3, 2009

His first wife was Delilah Reed. I never heard of him being married to a Louisa.

Campbell's mother was Delilah Reed Lewallen. His second wife was Emely Reed McDonald a sister to his first wife Delilah Reed Lewallen.

His second wife Emely had been married to Sterling McDonald , he died in 1863 and Delilah died in May 24, 1865, so John & Emely married December 09, 1865. Together had two daughter Tennessee & Texas. Tennessee is the grandmother of Venita Gaston a member on the site.

John died November 16, 1896 in Shep, Taylor County, Texas and is buried in Bluff Creek Cemetery, Bradshaw, Taylor, Texas.

Emely died in March 17, 1907 in Shep, Taylor County, Texas and is also buried there.

He was living in Wayne County, Ky when his daughter Tennessee was born in June 04, 1868, that is where she was born, but it would have been with Emily, her mother I believe. Also Texas was born April 17, 1870.

Maybe Venita or Kathleen can tell us if there was a Louisa. .

John & Delilah were also the grandparents of Kathleen Lewallen Fulwiler.

Billie Harris - Apr 3, 2009

Dorothy, I may be wrong about the Louisa.   When I got on Ancestry, all I could do is retrieve the names of the Lewallens and their approximate birth years for Wayne County, KY.   Here's what there is for 1870.   Maybe someone can figure out who the Louisa would be.   Does it appear that the McDonal S. (for Sterling?)   Lewallen might have been an adopted son since Sterling McDonald died 1863?

1870 - Census shows the following individuals (not known who belongs to which family - census needs to be researched
John Lewallen born 1813 (age 57) (This would be the age of John, the first sheriff of Scott Co. TN)
Louisa Lewallen born 1814
Campbell Lewallen born 1839 (age 31) (would be the son of John, first sheriff of Scott Co.)
Milly Ann Lewallen born 1840 (wife of Campbell)
Driscilla Lewallen born 1846
Lucy Lewallen born 1849
William Lewallen born 1852
McDonel S. Lewallen born 1855
James Lewallen born 1856
Helen Lewallen born 1858
Sarah Lewallen born 1860
Sarah Lewallen born 1860
Hiram Lewallen born 1861
Martha Lewallen born 1862
Aminda Lewallen born 1867
Thomas C. Lewallen born 1868
Granville C. Lewallen born 1869
John Lewallen born 1869
Eliza Jane Lewallen born 1869
Lurana Lewallen born 1869
Texas Lewallen born 1870

I notice from the above genealogy that John named one of his daughters Louisa and Campbell named one of his daughters Louisa, too.

Dorothy Campbell - Apr 4, 2009

Yes, John had a daughter named Louisa Delilia Lewallen born about 1849.

Campbell had a daughter named Louisa Delilia Lewallen   born June 04, 1874.

I don't know who Louisa Lewallen born 1814 is unless it is Delilah which I have born in 1815.

Maybe her first name was Louisa and she never used it. Since they named a daughter and granddaughter both   Delilia Lewallen. Only thing that makes sense to me.

I have 7 kids for Emely & Sterling McDonald.

Sarah Lewallen born 1860 is listed twice on Census.

I am not sure who all these people listed are, will have to go through names and dates and see if I can figure them out. I am sure   they are kin some how or another. In laws or step children, or grand kids.

Billie Harris - Apr 4, 2009

Dorothy, since John and Campbell both had daughters named Louisa Delilia, then it seems logical that it was Delilah (born 1815) who is listed in that census as Louisa.   If I'm not mistaken, when census takers took dates of birth in those days, they just subtracted the ages at the time the census was recorded so maybe she was actually born 1815 instead of 1814 as is shown on the census.

I think this would be pretty good substantiation that Delilia's first name was Louisa.

Dorothy Campbell - Apr 4, 2009

Yes, hard to pin point an exact age from Census, because of dates taken. Some where I used to have the dates and all that info on making a closer guess, maybe I will run across it some time.

Sounds logical that her first name was Louisa. Funny it has never been mentioned anyplace that I have seen yet.

Resa Miller - Apr 4, 2009

Who is Kathleen's parents?   I think I'll start adding everyone to my family tree so I can see the relationships.   Louisa Delilah Lewallen was my Dad's grandmother. I wonder if they knew each other.   They are near the same age, my dad was born Nov 22, 1918.   He was a little older even though he was a gggrandchild of John and Delilah.   Ok, I figured it out Kathleen and my Dad's dad are first cousins.   My granddad was much older than Kathleen.   Millard Watts was his name.   Ok, now I can go to bed.

Dorothy Campbell - Apr 4, 2009

[NOTE: broken link]

Yes, it is good to have a tree going to keep track.

Kathleen was the baby of the family and had several grown siblings, when she was just a baby. She and I have that in common, we both had grown siblings when we were babies. Mine were 16, 18, 19 & 20 years older than me. Mom was 36 when I was born. She had a span of 20 years with her children.

There's something that's confusing and just doesn't add up to me on the genealogy of the descendants of Anderson and Lucy Rice Lewallen.

Note Anderson and Lucy were married 1784.   The children given for them are:

Andrew L., born 1795.   That's 11 years after they were married.

Joel was born 1800.   That's 16 years after they were married.  

William L. was born 1809 which is 25 years after they were married.

John, Sheriff of Scott County,   was born 1812, 27 years after they were married.

It just seems like a long period of time to between the date of their marriage and their first child and a long period for Lucy to have had children.   Could William and John have been   grandsons?

The information we have for Wake is:

1789 - By this year, Jesse Lewellen was in the county.   He was from Prince Edward County, Virginia.   (a guess is that he was a brother of Anderson's...billie)

1790 - Census shows:   Moses Laulin and Jesse Loalan

? -   Date unknown but between 1771 and 1796 A deed from Jesse Lewellen to Moses Lewellen proved by George Barbee.

1795 - Jesse Lewellen married Delpha Fogaty (sic) 30 March; bondsman Anderson Lewellen; witness J. Rice

1800 - Census shows, Hillsborough District:
Jesse Lewellen, 2 males 0-10, 1 male 16-26 (1774-1784), 1 female 26-45 (1755-1774)
Anderson Lewellen, 3 males 0-10, 2 males 10-16, 1 male 26-45,(1755-1774)   3 females 0-10, 1 female 16-26
Francis Lewellen, 2 males 0-10, 1 male 10-16, 1 female 0-10, 1 female 16-26 (1774-1784)

1808 - John Lewellen married Nancy Roberts 26 December; bondsman William Smith; witness K. Jones

Was Francis in the 1800 census a widow or was Francis the young fellow 10-16?  

Comments please.
