The History Of The Colvin Family

I have information on the Colvin Family

starting with John Colvin to the present day(2003).

this family ties in with the Cummings family through the marriage

of Mary Brown Pope, to Carl E Cummings,Jr.

This is in progress and any help would be appreciated.

Notes for JOHN COLVIN:

John Colvin was born in Devonshire, England. He was granted

a land grant in S. C. on June 7, 1774 and he fought in the

American Revolution. It is thought that John Colvin came to

the US in the mid 1700's as the oldest of 7 brothers.

He settled in Chester Co., SC. On June 7, 1774,

King George III of England made a land grant to John

"Two hundred acres in Craven County on the north

side of Broad River bounding South East and South West

on John Gwinn and all other sides on vacant land."

John Colvin prepared his last will on June, 1793 and it was

probated on September 24, 1793. Thus, he would have died

during that 4 month period. His wife Hannah was alive at the

time the will was made based on the fact that John appointed

her as executrix of the will. The will left his property
