I posted a response yesterday, June 22 to Bell's June 12, 2002 posting because when I type in words in my message the search does not turn it up. So I will try again.
I descend from Nimrod Duvall born 1777 or 1776 & wife Rebecca Waters (spelled Rebeca in records)). They came from parts unknown but suspect origionally Frederick County Maryland. He first appears in Warren County, Ohio court records in 1804 giving his OK as guardian of Charles Sipes (Sypes, Sype) to mary a lass named Kindle (Kindel), Charles was underage. Nimrod seems associated with Stout & Lefever (Lefevre) families - Jacob Lefever born 1785 & wife Mary Pope Jackson both born Frederick, MD and married in the records of the Evangelical Reformed church (German Lutheren) and also the Moravian church, Graceham near Emmitsberg are Nimrod's neighbor in Deerfield Twp. OH.
Lefeber, Duval & Waters seem associated with surnames Baltzell, Troxel, Wotring (earlier Vortin, Wortring, later changed to Woodring) Some of the latter went to Carolinas and on to TN & KY ? Will share
