History Of Barnard, Vermont
Lurvey Family
"The name of Lurvey is a good transliteration of the German 'Loeve' which is a common name among German Jews; and there is a tradition in the Lurvey family that the first Lurvey who emigrated to Massachusetts in the 17th century was of Jewish descent and came from Archangel in Russia. It is noticeable that many of the Lurveys have old testament names such as Reuben, Levi, Samuel, Isaac and Jacob, and that their noses tend to be aquieline." Quoted from Dr. W. A. Dewey who has remembered valuable assistance in tracing this family.

Archangel (Eng) Arkhangelsk (Russian) City and Provence.

For what its worth. Descending from this family, my ethnic DNA test showed a 1% West Asia Caucasus region and that 3% of European Jews have this. There seems that there may be truth to this story.
