Birth: Sep. 20, 1698
Noord-Holland, Netherlands
Death: 1770
Berks County
Pennsylvania, USA

Among the members of the Huguenot Church at Amsterdam, Holland, were Daniel LeVan and his wife, Marie Beau, refugees from Picardy, France. From a baptismal certificate, it seems that some of the children were born at Amsterdam. About 1715 four sons of the refugee set out for PA. They were Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Joseph, the latter of whom died at sea. These were followed in 1727 by their brother, Daniel, and all of them settled in Berks Co. In 1748 Peter LeVan arrived, whose identity and place of location is not known." Abraham LeVan was born in Amsterdam in 1698, was married to Catherine Weimer, daughter of Mrs. DeTurk by a former husband in France. He located at Oley, situated in beautiful valley in the eastern part of Berks Co, about fifty miles northwest of Philadelphia, and near the De Turks, and his beautiful home is still in the possession of his descendants, after a lapse of almost two centuries. He died in 1771, leaving a number of children. His wife died three years before him.
