Grave identified by a relative. William Henry "Will" Reveile was born in Comanche County, Texas on April 13, 1873, the son of Leroy A. "Lee" Reveile (b. TX ca. 1848) and wife Mary J. "Mollie" Edwards. William Henry Reveile married Artie B. Setzer. William and Artie Reveile had nine children, including: (1) Samuel L. Reveile (b. abt 1901); (2) James Henry Reveile; (3) Ethel M. Reveile (b. abt 1906; married a Mr. Davis); and, (4) Claude Ergle Reveile (b. abt 1908--md Jettie Pearl Burrough); (5) Johnny Reveile; (6) Artie Reveile (md a Mr. Nelson); and (7) Floyd Reveile. William Henry Reveile died in Milam County, Texas on January 3, 1935.

In April of 2001, Linda Pierce Forsyth (lforsyth@tca.net) provided the following information on the Reveile family:

The Leroy Reveile who married Mollie Edward is an older brother of my gg-gm Sarah Alice Reveal. They were children of Joseph Reveal and Arvazena Williamson. Joseph Reveal was born abt. 1827 in Indiana, and wife Arvazena Williamson was born abt. 1823 in TN. They married June 13, 1844, in Greene Co., MO. They migrated to then-Milam Co. in the 1840s. All their children were born in TX (based on 1850 Milam and 1860 Bell censuses), so they must have arrived in Milam Co. soon after their wedding.

Arvazena Williamson died by the early 1860s, and Joseph Reveal "gave away" all his kids and got married again--to Elizabeth Sparks, b. 1836, a baby of the Runaway Scrape. I have just recently learned of at least 3 kids that they had.

So far, I don't know when and where Joseph or his 2 wives died or where they are buried. Elizabeth SPARKS's family is the same as that of Sparks, Bell Co. Another close family is Leatherman.

The surname has been spelled variously as Reveal, Reveil, Reviel, Reveile, etc. -- and that it is so rare that we are all kin.
