Information on Anthony and Mary White, from book by:BY GWENDOLYN DUNLEVY KELLEY, COLUMBUS, OHIO 1901
PRINTED AT THE CHAUCER PRESS BY THE EVANS PRINTING COMPANY COLUMBUS, OHIO
Just some of the information on Anthony.

CHAPTER I, PART III. HISTORY OF ANTHONY DUNLEVY II. AND OF HIS WIFE HANNAH WHITE
ABOUT 1760 HISTORY OF HER FAMILY Pg 218..

ANTHONY DUNLEVY (II.)

Anthony Dunlevy, the youngest of nine sons of (???) Dunlevy, of Ireland, born (???), came to America from Ireland about 1735 (or 40). He was preceded by one of his brothers who was killed in New York, as Anthony learned at Baltimore. Anthony Dunlevy settled at Winchester, Virginia, in what was then Frederick County, at the year 1735, it is believed, and here on or about December 31, 1761, his son, Francis Dunlevy, was born. He is said to have had nine children. About 1760 (or '64) he married Hannah White, daughter of Dr. Robert White, and of Margaret Hoge, and sister of Judge Alexander White, of Robert, and John White, of Revolutionary record, and also sister of (???) White, who married Moses Hoge. In 1772 Anthony Dunlevy moved from Winchester, Va., to Western Virginia, where he remained until after the Revolutionary war.
Francis Dunlevy in his application for a pension of October 3, 1832, states that in July, 1777, he served as a substitute, in the militia at Fort Pitt, for his father, Anthony Dunlevy, who had served the first half of a month, for which time he had been drafted, during the Revolutionary war. Anthony Dunlevy died (???), in (???). His brother (above mentioned) was killed by Indians, high up Delaware (on Jersey side).

THE SEVEN CHILDREN OF ANTHONY DUNLEVY AND HANNAH WHITE.
(Letter from Mr. Harvey Dunlavy, of Bloomfield, Iowa, 1869, to his son, (Judge) Anthony Howard Dunlavy.)

"About 150 years ago Anthony Dunlavy (your great grandfather) emigrated to Washington County, Pa. Your great grandparents, Anthony Dunlavy and Hannah, had seven children--four sons and three daughters. The sons were Francis, Daniel (your grandfather), John and Anthony, who were all educated at Cannonsburgh College, Washington County, Pa. Francis and Daniel were lawyers, John was a very eloquent Presbyterian preacher and also an eminent physician. Daniel and Anthony chose the farm. Francis Dunlevy was fourteen years District Judge in Ohio. Your grandaunts were Hannah, Naomi, and Rebecca.
1. Hannah Dunlavy married a man by the name of White.
2. Naomi married a man by the name of Stewart.
3. And Rebecca married Henry Miller.

ANTHONY DUNLEVY AND HIS ESTATE.
(A letter from Dr. William H. Egle, State Librarian, Harrisburg, Pa.)

"You seem to have most of the information I have, which was furnished Mr. Cummins for his "History of Washington County, Pennsylvania" Pg. 220..--one of the best local histories ever prepared. (See extracts.)
Anthony Dunlevy, I find, held a Virginia warrant for 400 acres `on the waters Shuebie (Charliess) Creek, of date of April 24, 1780--that section of Pennsylvania being claimed by Virginia. On the 24th of May, 1787, this land was warranted to him by the State of Pennsylvania.' Butterfield's `Crawford Expedition' and Cummins' History of Washington County, Pa., no doubt you have referred to. Anthony Dunlevy's wife, was a daughter (?) of Alexander White and the records of Virginia will furnish you information. (They were burned.)
I do not think Anthony Dunlevy's parents came to America, if so, not to Pennsylvania.
An Andrew Dunlevy, born 1795, d. 1776 I believe, left descendants in Washington County, Pa., and belonged to the family.
