Given Name: Henderson James
Note: Henderson James Colvin in early Pittman Creek Baptist Church records,used the name James Henderson Colvin. He may be the son of RobertColvin and Elizabeth Henderson of Chester County, PA.

In Taylor County Vital Statistics, Mary Russell Colvin's death isrecorded: daughter of John and Jane Russell, born Chester County,Virginia. Her tombstone reads: born in Virginia,
Died in Kentucky, plus the birthdate and death date. There was noChester County, Va., but on the 1790 census there is a John and JaneRussell in Chester, Shenandoah County, Virginia.

COLVIN, Robert (b. BEF 1740, d. BEF 13 NOV 1781)
Given Name: Robert
Note: Robert Colvin first appears on tax lists of E. Nottingham Twp.,Chester Co. PA in 1756 which may indicate he was about age 16 or overin that year. Subsequently he appears on this tax list in 1768 as a"joyner", on 31 Jan 1770 (for taxes of 3..0.0), and so on through1780.

On 17 June 1766 he was appointed co-administrator with ElizabethColvin of the estate of John Colvin, deceased.

A Chester County PA history lists him as a landowner in E. Nottinghamin 1774. His inventory was taken on 13 Nov 1781 by Samuel and HenryEwing. It was presented to the court by Samuel Ewing on 22 May 1782and on 23 May 1782,Esther Calvin (sic) and John Henry Calvin (sic)were appointed co-administrators of Robert's estate with Henry andJohn Ewing as their securities. Bond was witnessed by Robert andGeorge McElheney. On 26 Apr 1792 the heirs of Robert Colvin-his threesons, William EwingColvin, Thomas Colvin and Handerson James Colvin-sold his 131 acres in Chester Co. to John Watt of E. Nottingham Twp.(Book H-2:31) It is presumed, although not proved, that Robert wasthe son of John Colvin who had resided in Chester Co. as early as1734 until his death in E. Nottingham Twp. John may have been anemigrant from Scotland as there is a tradition in the family that thisline came from Scots ancestry.

According to some authorities the name Colvin owes its origin to onenamed Colvin or Colvinus who was a substantial landowner during thereign of Edward the Confessor in the 11th century. There are otherswho say the name was bestowed upon residents of, or emigrants fromColvend, a town in Kircudbrightshire, Scotland, the ancient name ofwhich was Culwen. Still again, there are others who say it was thename applied to those who came to England in medieval times fromColeville, a community in Normandy, France.

RUSSELL, John (b. 24 FEB 1747/48, d. 15 APR 1783)
Given Name: John
Note: John Russell, son of Andrew Russell, is thought to be the father ofMary Russell. John Russell was married to Elizabeth Swink, daughter ofLawrence and Margaret Swink. Jane ? also was married to a John Russelland was mother of Mary Russell. She may have been the wife of JohnRussell before or after he married Elizabeth Swink. John Russell wasbaptized at the Tinkling Springs Meeeting House Congregation inFishersville Virginia on 24 February 1748 by the Rev.John Craig. Otherchildren in Andrew Russell's family were Andrew, Robert, Martha,Joshua and William. Andrew Russell was a member of the TinklingSprings Meeting House, Fisherville, Augusta County, Virginia, in 1744.

A Samuel Russell was born in Augusta County, Virginia, and was the sonof John Russell and Elizabeth Swink Russell. This Samue Russell latersettled in Campbellsville, Kentucky. In 1810 census Samuel was theonly Russell family head listed in Green County, Kentucky. I believethis is the same Samuel Russell who married Rebecca Litman 2 October1804 in Marcer County, Kentucky.

Henderson James Colvin and his wife, Mary, came to Kentucky in 1794and resided in Green County. At this point they had three of their 11children with them who were born in Frederick County, Virginia. Mary'sfather, John Russell, also settled in Campbellsville but the date isunknown.

Mary Russell and Samuel Russell were probably brother and sister.Henderson James Colvin is documented to be the uncle of Samuel RussellLawrence, whose mother was Rosanna Russell. Thjis would make MaryRussell Colvin sister to Rosanna Russell, however no birth recordshave been located to prove that John Russell and wife, Elizabeth Swinkor Jane? are the parents of Rosanna Russell.
Baptism: 24 FEB 1748 Tinkling Springs Meeting House Congregation, Fisherville, VA.
