In Reply to: LEVIN COVINGTON WAILES by Linda Barth of 1185

Linda, It looks like there were several Levin Wailes. One had relocated to Louisiana and later to Mississippi by as early as 1810 serving as surveyor and as registrar of the Land Offices there. In 1855, he (or perhaps his son) returned to Upper Marlboro, Prince George’s County, MD, to marry Nannie Harper. In 1807, a Levin C. Wailes is listed as living in Lower Marlborough. In 1789, Levin Covington Wailes and Susannah Wailes administered the estate of Benjamin Wailes. In 1810, Susanna Wailes (probably wife of Benjamin) was shown as owing taxes on her property “Brooke Court” in Prince George’s County, MD. In 1831, there was a reference to Benjamin L. C. Wailes being appointed as Registrar of the land office in Mississippi. Not sure if this Benjamin L. C. is the same Levin Wailes who also served as registrar.
