Peter LeValley burying ground, Warwick RI. Named after Peter LeValley Sr., grandson of the original Peter. Though he and his descendants are buried there, the cemetery may have been founded by his uncle John-who may also lie there with his second wife under uninscribed fieldstones.
Henry LeValley burying ground, Coventry RI. Named after the grandson of the above-mentioned Peter Sr. Henry lies there with his descendants.
LeValley Cemetery, Middleport NY. Named after the donor of the land, Holden LeValley (son of the original Peter's grandson John Jr.). He donated the land in 1819, reserving the right for himself and his heirs forever to pasture calves and sheep on it. But when Holden and his wife died four years later, their bodies were sent back to Canandaigua NY for burial with their infant daughter and other relatives. His nephew's family was later buried in the LeValley Cemetery.
