Husband's General Notes

According to the book "History of Charleston and Kanawha County" by Laidley (page 76), James came to Kanawha County in 1815.(This was from a section on early settlers of the Kanawha Valley.) He settled on the north side of Elk River about the fourth home up the river. His occupation was a boat builder.

"He died on Elk River prior to Civil War" according to page 921 of the Laidley book. (This was from a section on individuals of importance in 1911, and consists of information supplied by that individual's family.)

1830 census list as follows:
1 male 0-5
2 males 20-30
1 male 40-50
1 male 50-60
1 female 0-5
1 female 20-30
1 male slave 10-24.

Based on the above, it seems doubtful that he was born in 1795 as per Morman Records. If he were one of the men aged 20-30, then he would have been between 5 and 15 when he arrived in Kanawha Co. and bought land. (Impossible!) If he were the man listed as 40-50, then he was born 1780-1790. If he were the man listed as 50-60, then he was born 1770-1780. Of course, it is possible that the census taker simply made a mistake in the category which he placed James and that he should have been listed as 30-40.

Since he was a boat builder, this was probably James, plus 3 males who worked in the business, and boarded with his family.

His widow married a man who was described as a boat builder in the 1850 census. Did she inherit the business? There was no will probated for James, and the second marriage for Nancy was not recorded in Kanawha Co.


Wife's General Notes

CENS: CONC 7
CENS: CENS


General Notes for Child Female Reveal

Not listed in family records, but is on the 1830 Kanawha Co. census: must have died before 1840.


General Notes for Child William Park Reveal

According to Carrie Thaxton, William Park Reveal had seven sons and four daughters. The names of the children were obtained from the various census.

1870 Mortality Records for Kanawha Co. lists a "Mary A. Revele" age 5. There were no other Reveals by any spelling in West Virginia at this time.

The 1870 census are listed under the name "Raveal".

The 1870 census (transcribed) lists a "Clember". The 1880 census (transcribed) lists a "Charlie". I believe this to be the same person.

file contains: 1. copy of 1850 census, married no children

3. transcript of 1880 census with wife and six children plus three married sons listed separately.
