Does anyone know how Dr. John Swepston Llewellyn-08-06-1824 Halifax Virginia to 06-07-1897 Durango Falls County, Texas is related to the Lewallens who came to Texas?   Wife is Mary Francis Curry 01-01-1838 Caswell County, NC to 12-12-1909 Marlin Falls County, Texas.   I found him and family living in Falls County, Texas the history of that area has him living in that area beginning in 1860.   My grandfather John Edward Lewallen was born in Falls Couty, Texas, 1893 and his grandfather Peter Swink Bruner was a Minister in that area.

A possibility is that he was a descendant of Christopher and Cathrine Llewellyn of Gloucester County, VA.     In Gloucester Mar 15, 1821, John Stephens Llewellyn married Harriet Edwards Jones.   They were the parents of nine children.   John Stephens Llewellyn died in Halifax County 1858.   I don't have a list of their children so I'm only guessing that John Swepston Llewellyn was one of their children.
