David Leer was a delicate man all his life but the care of a devoted wife kept him here until his 83 years....Our David Leer was the first leader of Matheny's Meeting house, the first church in Bourbon, KY. It was very strict - much like Quakers. (Letter from Corday Leer Buckley) He finally left the church over the slavery question. I have heard my grandmother tell the story. You will notice in his will, he frees all his slaves. That was long before the civil wars. (I have the will of David Leer Sr. made on 18 August 1849 and proved on 6 September, 1852. He was the one who freed his slaves. Pat Gibbs)
David Leer Sr. built four identical homes on Jacksontown Pike for four of his sons. David Jr. had silver spoons made from silver money with which to start housekeeping.spouse: Kenney, Charlotte Corday (1809 - 1897)
My grandfather David was an old man in my childhood and was delicate, but lived to be 83 years old. He was very thin and had black hair and black eyes. He would only drink from a china cup and silver spoon. Was rather vain of his long narrow hands and feet which have been inherited by me and my elder son along with his delicate constitution. He could kill a hawk on the wing when he was 80. He could not only see well, but hear as well and I have heard my mother say he was one of the smartest men she ever saw, altho he was denied a higher education.
David was slender and tall with keen black eyes. He and Corday spent the rest of their lives in the house where they went to housekeeping. Their house was located on the Jacksontown Pike and the house was identical with three others said to have been built by David Leer Sr., for his four sons.
(This and all the information on the Leer's given to the Kenney ancestors by Pat Gibbs, descendant of William Leer, in 1997).

There is a birth date of 1794 on a record that Peg Zimmerman has. Perhaps you are aware that the name Markwell was originally Marquil.spouse: Davis, Francis Reno (1805 - 1874)
The original William Markwell and his family were buried in a little family cemetery in the village of Poplar Plains, Fleming County. In later years, the property passed down to people who were not related to the Markwell. Mrs Royse found that this farmer Took up all of the tombstones and used them in a concrete foundation for his barn, or some such building. She was quite upset by all of it.
I don't know when the family changed the name from Marquil to Markwell, but I suspect that it was before they came to Fleming county because it is almost always written Markwell in the old records. Information from [email protected]@musica.mcgill.ca (W. Talley) 11/18/1997.
