"The first name of William Scholl's wife is verified by two sources, one a deed from William Shull
and Leah his wife and Sarah Shull (widow of Peter, William's father) to William McDowel on 25 Aug.
1779 (Shenendoah Co., Va., Deed Book C:183, FHL microfilm 33888), and the other a deed from
William Scholl and Leah his wife of Fayette Co., Ky., to George Frye on 14 Oct. 1794 (Fayette Co., Ky.,
"Burnt Records," 2:197, FHL microfilm 8993)... Although no confirmation of the maiden name of Leah
Scholl is known from primary sources, her maiden name is given as "Morgan" in a number of places."

Chapter 42: "The ancestry of Leah Morgan, mother of Abraham Scholl, is as obscure and debatable
as is that of Abraham's father."
Chapter 41: "With Daniel Boone and Abraham Lincoln on this trip out to Kentucky in 1779 came
another family destined to become prominent in the early history of Pike county, namely, the
family of William and Leah (Morgan) Scholl, who also, along with Lincoln, had come out of the
Shenandoah Valley of Virginia and joined Daniel Boone's party. The Schools and Lincolns at this
time were friends of long standing and some Scholl descendants think it is probable that the
two families were related. It is certain that the Scholls and Boones were related at this time,
both families having intermarried with the Morgan family of Revolutionary renown... With
William and Leah (Morgan) Scholl, coming out to Kentucky with Boone in 1779, came eight of the
ten (or eleven) children who had been born to them."
Chapter 101: "Peter Scholl was a son of William Scholl and Leah Morgan."
