I am currently developing a theory about this family you may find interesting. I believe you would agree that Elijah Rayl is probably the son of William Rayle and his wife Lovisa. Since I am beginning to believe that Lovisa's maiden name was DUSKY, I have found it most intriguing that there was an Eli DUSKY down in Kentucky at about the time she got married in 1793. Either this Eli, or his son, moves up to Hamilton County, Ohio by the early 1800s. This is very close to Switzerland County. The name Eli and Levisey are also used in the George LAND family. See the BIO page on this web site. I believe your ancestor, Elijah RAYL, was named for this grandfather, Eli DUSKY.
