Possible Leads - Unverfied Information

I remembered that there were other people working on Louisa and Levi Daniel and I was curious what information they had so I did a few google searches on Levi Daniel. I came up with some interesting leads but practically no sources and citations. He is some if the information I came across as well as the links to where I found it. Much of it is from old message boards. I plan to try and contact the person that posted the information but I fear the email addresses will be outdated.

You will notice that most if not all of the information refers to Louisa as Louvica. I personally believe it is a transcription error but I have not been able to prove either way.

This paragraph of information came from the site Decendents of Robert Scaife I of Winton. It amazingly goes back into the 1500's BUT it is a line Louisa's sister married into so no direct ancestors for me. It does include information about Louisa and her siblings, who they married as well as dates. Interestingly enough the surname Scaife shows up with Levi Daniel's in the 1830 census.

Sophia BISHOP, the wife of Jesse SCAIEFE, Jr., was the daughter of John BISHOP and Kesiah UNKNOWN. Her siblings were: Jesse BISHOP [M]: m1. Hannah THRASH, 24 August 1826, Clay County, Illinois: m2. Ann SULLIVAN, 15 June 1848, Clay County, Illinois; Louvica BISHOP (22 October 1807, Tennessee - 12 November 1857, Clay County, Illinois) [F]: m. Levi DANIEL, July 1824, Fayette County, Illinois; Joseph BISHOP [M]: m. Sarah DAVIS, 20 January 1828, Clay County, Illinois; Mary BISHOP [F]: m. John W. P. DAVIS, 24 December 1838, Clay County, Illinois; Nancy BISHOP (31 January 1812, Tennessee - ABT 1856, Missouri) [F]: m. Amos Martin WHITELY, 23 August 1830; Keziah Whitely BISHOP (6 October 1820, Clay County, Illinois - 25 March 1914, Riley County, Kansas) [F]: m. Mordica COCKRELL (16 October 1821, Salem, Washington County, Indiana - 8 August 1898, Riley, Riley County, Kansas), 1 December 1842, Clay County, Illinois; and John BISHOP (22 January 1822, Clay County, Illinois - May 1852, Clay County, Illinois: interment at Old Baptist Cemetery, Clay County, Illinois) [M]: m. Sarah A. BORAH, 31 October 1843, Marion County, Illinois.

This information forum is a bit out there and I can not directly tie into it but there are a few indications that the people being discussed are ancestors of Levi Daniel. There are first name trends including the name Levi and Basil. There is also mention of migration patterns that include North Carolina, Tennessee, and Clay County, Illinois. Some interesting leads.

This GenForum post gives some interesting information that helps link to the information mentioned above. Unfortunately there aren't any sources mentioned.
