Duvall came to this county from South Carolina where he was born in 1789. He was the son of another Lewis Duvall who lived in that state. Lewis Duvall, Sr. drove mules to Georgia for sale and on one trip he never returned. It was thought that he had been killed by Indians. An older brother of Lewis Duvall, John Duvall, born in South Carolina in 1780, also came to this county. He died of dropsy in this county, January 1, 1857. He was in this county as early as 1818, for a daughter, Eleanor, was born at Paoli in that year. On November 2, 1826, Joseph Alexander, sheriff of Cumberland County, sold at public on the premises 150 acres in the valley belonging to Daniel Huff, to satisfy a court judgment against Huff and William Frogge in favor of Peter and John Zimmerman. Lewis Duvall bid $450.00 and became the purchaser. In 1832, he purchased the farm of James Wood, who moved to Illinois. By 1835, Lewis Duvall had accumulated extensive holdings in the valley at the head of Spring Creek that became known as Duvall Valley, after him.

A robust, aggressive individual little concerned with the social amenities of the day, Lewis Duvall sired eleven children by his common-law wife, Nancy Wiley, who came with him from South Carolina, without bothering with the necessity of a marriage vow. The children's surnames were changed from Wiley to Duvall by an Act of the Kentucky Legislature, February 8, 1837.
