1783 - Abednego L. arrives at a settlement on the Cumberland River in TN in July of 1783.   According to Davidson Co. circuit court minutes, A/14, Mary Framel accused him of fathering her two children.   A witness for Llewellyn, James Haggatt, swore that he and Abednego had arrived at the settlement on July 7, 1783, and that Abednego had not visited the place for one or two months previously and could not be the father.   The case was eventually dismissed (A/30).

1784 - 5 July:   “Abednego Lewallen having been summoned to appear....   To the presentment of the Grand Jury against him for the crime of fornication...appeared and pleaded not guilty on which a jury was called, to wit:   Daniel Durnam, Francis Armstrong, Elmore Douglass, Benjamin Kuykendall, John Barrow, John Boyd, Solomon White, Ambrose Maulson, Amos Heaton, Francis Hodges, Humphry Hogan and George Flynn, who being elected tried and sworn sayeth that the said Lewallen and Nancy Snow live together in one house.   On which the jury with crew returned and say they do not find the said Lewallen guilty of the crime charges against him in the indictment.”

Bell, were in pursuit of game, and fell into an ambush, when the Indians fired and killed Shelby and Lewellen."   This account apparently comes from John Haywood's ”The Civil and Political history of the State of Tennessee,” published in 1823, entry for the year 1789.   According to an indenture (30 Aug 1810, registered 31 Jan 1811:   Davidson Co TN Deed Book I, p. 80) signed by Shadrack Llewellyn of Buncombe Co. NC, "the said Abednego Llewellyn departed this life without issue and without having made any last will or testament."  

1789 -   Nancy Llewellyn appointed administratrix of Abednego's estate.   (A/217)   The above information and bastardy records come from Mrs. William T.

In Reply to: Luellen Family - PA > IA by Judy Luellen   of 115  

I have a copy of an article from a history of Randolph Co., Indiana which has an article about a Meshach Lewellyn who lived in Washington Co. PA before 1816.

Meshach was born sometween 1760 and 1765, probably in Loudoun Co., VA. He was the son of Shadrach and Deborah (Burson) Lewellyn. He married Hanna (Brooks?) ca. 1790, probably in Washington Co. (the article says Ohio, but it probably should be PA) During his moves west he lived in Washington Co., PA, Hardin Co., KY and Preble Co. OH before coming to Randolph Co., IN in 1816.

There is further information on his family which I will enter if you can use it.
