I am a decendent of Dixon Hale Nevin, brother of Marcus.
Your post has really gotton my attention.
I have history of Henry Nevin (Marcus' father) down to me.
Marcus had no children. Never marrried to family knowledge.
He had 11 siblings: George Washington, Sarah Rebeca, Daniel Webster, Julie Catherine, John Henry, Mary Elizabeth, Charles Alexander, (Marcus Virgil), Percy Fairfield, Dixon Hale, Rufus Stanton, and Nancy Emma. (born in that order)
Where did you get the information that Henry Nevin was born in Canada.? Family stories say he was born near Lockport New York about 1825 and that is what was put on his grave marker. Henry reportably ran away from home as a tennager and probably went through Canada to do it. Family story also
says he went to England and later returned.
Do you have any more data on family history????? I am at a dead end on Henry. We do not know name of his father and mother. Do you?
I would love to talk with you about this family and Marcus. I have a little more on him if you want it. My e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
. Hope to hear from you soon.
