I'm somewhat suspicious of the 1765 birthyear, much more so the 1767 birthyear.  Even granting the 1765 birthyear, he would have been a bit young to have fought in the Revolutionary War, but more importantly, men rarely married women three or four years their senior.

2.  Census Index:  Colonial America, 1607-1789 (Broderbund CD-310):
1741 Rouncevelt, Richard NJ Hunterdon Co. Reading Twp. p. 55  
1741 Rouncevelt, Benjamin NJ Hunterdon Co. Hopewell Twp. p. 52  
1782 Rounsivell, Benjamin VA Hampshire Co.   p. 25 06-00
There was also a Benjamin, Josiah, and David ROUNSEVAL in Rowan Co., NC, ca. 1755-1768.  These are all the ROUNSAVELLs (or variations) on the CD.  My guess is that ROUNCEVELT is probably closer to the original surname, which may be related to the Dutch surname ROOSEVELT.

3.  Census Index:  U.S. Selected Counties, 1790 (Broderbund CD-311):  the 1790 VA Census was destroyed, so we do not find our subject.  There are 16 ROUNSAVELLs (or variations) on the CD, found in NJ, NC, and MA.
