This third Colvin line is an example of where I have some brick walls.

QUESTIONS:
1. I have lineage of Susannah Fiske but does anyone have dates for her other
than her death being about 1824?
2. Does anyone have dates or more specific details on the lineage of Lydia
Collins? I have her as daughter of Rhoby _____ & Ebenezer (4) Collins
(1718-?), [John William (3), John (2), Henry (1)]. Some say that Ebenezer
married a Sarah Flint?
3. Does anyone have dates or lineage of Mercy _____, wife of Holden Colvin,
Sr. (1783-1867)? It seems Holden had 3 more wives after that?! Besides
Mercy _____, he has been linked with an Olive Andrew, Anna _____, and Phebe
_______.

Thank you in advance for any help with this.

Gloria

Subject: [COLVIN-L] Time for a roll call


> I believe it is time once again for a roll call of the Colvin-L list.
Marilyn recently wrote me remarking that the list has been rather "quiet" of
late (notwithstanding David Stott's great biographical contributions). In
order to get the genealogical juices flowing again, Marilyn suggested that
we have another roll call, which we haven't had in about a year, as I
recall.
>
> She suggested that the roll call be modified slightly to list the
"problem" families in our research. Where have you reached a dead end?
What information do you have leading up to this dead end (family members'
names, birth, death, and marriage dates and places, and names of spouses)?
Give us enough information to be able to "hook" your relative into one of
ours.
>
> In order to help place your missing relatives, please tell us which branch
of the Colvins your family is in. That would generally be the name of the
Colvin farthest back in your line.
>
> My deepest apologies to you, Marilyn, for not replying to your email until
now. For those of you who have been wondering, I am indeed alive and well.
I have been somewhat swamped with work these days, not to mention the fact
that I have started studying for a MS degree in Organization Management
(like and MBA for non-profits). Consequently, I have not had the time for
much genealogical research, but I continue to follow the postings to the
list with great enthusiasm and interest.
