This Family Tree dates from 6 A.D. to the present and includes most Royal houses of Europe; some from Byzantium and Russia. The US family roots begin prior to the American Revolution and include many families from Ohio, West Virginia, Pensylvania, and Minnesota. If anyone in Cyberland can help me with the verifiable origin ot the Levi Tuel and Christopher Martin lineages, I would be greatly appreciative, as these roots are herein speculative.

    Levi is the son of "either Daniel or William Tuel" according to his cousin. Since the progeny of Daniels A, B, & C are well known, I am 'assuming' that he is the son of William Tuel, about whom little is known. He is certainly well related to the Daniels and the Pressleys (Tuels).
