"In the name of God, amen. I, Morris Dunlevy, of Westmoreland County, and State of Pennsylvania, being somewhat on the decline of life, but in perfect soundness of mind, do leave this my last Will and Testament, written with my own hand this sixth day of April, in the year of our Lord, one thousand eight hundred and seventeen, viz:
"Item: I leave and bequeath to my aged mother, Mary Dunlevy, the sum of twenty dollars. Item: I leave and bequeath to my brother John Dunlevy, the sum of two dollars. Item: I leave and bequeath to my brother Andrew Dunlevy, the sum two dollars. Item: I leave and bequeath to the heirs of my brother Anthony Dunlevy, late of Washington County, deceased, the sum of ten dollars to be equally divided among them. Item: I leave and bequeath to my brother, Daniel Dunlevy, the sum of two dollars. Item: I leave and bequeath to the children of my brother, James Dunlevy, late of Jefferson County, Ohio, forty dollars, to-wit, to each ten dollars. Item: I leave and bequeath my sister, Pg. 94 … Nancy Wilson, the sum of ten dollars. Item: I leave and bequeath to my beloved wife, Elizabeth
Dunlevy, all lands, houses, tenemeuts, moneys, stock, chattels or whatsoever else not herein mentioned I may die possessed of, hers at her disposal, nevertheless should she die without issue and intestate, what remains of my property in her hands shall revert to my legal heirs. My debts, which are few and inconsiderate, I request to be honestly and faithfully discharged by my executors. "I leave Michael Findley and Luke Basil my executors, and my beloved wife, Elizabeth Dunlevy, my executrix. Disannulling all former wills, I again acknowledge this to be my last will and testament. In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand and seal the day and date above mentioned.
In presence of John Robinson and William Latta."
"The above will was proved and testamentary letters taken out Oct. 29, 1817.
OHIO RECORDS OF JAMES DUNLEVY.EXTRACT FROM "THE PATHFINDERS OF JEFFERSON COUNTY."
Published by the Ohio Archacological and Historical Society, Vol. VI.
(Page 212.) "James Dunlevy, a Scotch-Irish Episcopalian, came to Jefferson County from what is now Fayette County, Pa., and settled in Cross Creek Township in 1796 and was perhaps the first settler-- as the records show that William Whitcraft, George Mahan and William McElroy, supposed to be the first, settled in the Spring of 1797. Dunlevy owned a farm about three miles west of Steubenville and was the sheriff of the county at his death in 1806. A daughter was born in January,1805, Nancy Dunlevy, who was the mother of Judge James H. Anderson, of Columbus, the author of "The Life of Col. William Crawford," published by the Ohio Historical Society, a conscientious as
well as able tribute to the worthy deeds of one of the noblest of the Revolutionary soldiers." (Page 262.) "It was this parish that first petitioned the General Convention in 1806, asking leave to form a diocese in the western country. Among those signing the petition were: James Dunlevy, William Graham and Daniel Dunlevy, the latter an uncle of James H. Anderson, of Columbus."
