  • Note:
    Marvil Elkins, who m. Nancy Sharp, probably had a brother whose son,
    Marvil, was b. 1806 in Logan Co., KY. This younger Marvil m. Rhoda Vance.
    Marvil (of Nancy) was in Lawrence Co.,O, census of 1820 (Union
    Township). In 1830, Nancy Elkins is listed, so he probably died between
    1820-30. Nancy was living next door to James Foster, who m. Sarah
    Trying to trace relationships/ancestors of Marvil Elkins, I find these
    1. Marvil was in Kanawha, (W)VA, where he married in 1800 and where
    their first child, Lucy, was born. Later that year (probably) he was in
    Gallipolis, Ohio. In 1812 he was in Lawrence Co., Ohio. Where was he
    before 1800? If Marvil b.abt 1775, not old enough for Rev. War. Maybe
    2. There was an Archibald Elkins who d.1791 in Montgomery Co., VA.
    His list of siblings and children does not name a Marvil. He is listed
    on RootsWeb as having been born in 1735 in Suffolk, VA, son of Richard &
    Mary (Gallop) who was son of Richard and Bryant.
    3. Check out the Elkins in Logan Co., WVA around 1800. One source on
    RootsWeb says Absalom Elkins was b. 1791 in Montgomery Co. VA, died in
    Logan Co. VA. He shows up in the 1850 census there with wife Hannah, 60
    4. Richard Elkins is 80 y/o in the Logan Co. WVA census of 1850
    (therefore b.ABT 1770.) Was he a brother of Marvil of Ohio? He was
    prob. a gr-son of Archibald Elkins of Mont. Co. VA. A Marvil is not
    listed as a son of Archibald, however. sons of Archibald,(Mont.Co) their
    father would be one of his sons: John, David, or Absalom. Do any of
    these appear in Logan Co. or Kanawha? I have seen Absalom speculated as
    the father of Marvil, but no proof. The name does not appear in either
    the Logan Co. or Lawr. Co. families.
    6. Archibald (of Mont.Co) was b. Stafford, VA, according to internet
    info (Ancestry.com). His parents were Richard and Mary (Gallop) Elkins;
    gr-parents Richard and Elisabeth (Bryant) Elkins.
