I have an Edward Givans in my files born circa 1804 in Virginia. He was the son of Mary Thompson who married (--?--) Givans, was widowed, and then married Henry Penny 13 October 1831 in Darke County, Ohio. Mary died at age 72 on 13 December 1853 in Miami County and was buried in Old Ludlow Cemetery, Laura, in that county. Henry had died in 1841 and in his will appointed Edward Givans of Darke County his executor. I know of no other children from Mary's marriage to Givans; she and Henry had no children. Edward, his wife Elizabeth and their 10 children are in the 1850 census in Twin Township, Darke County, Ohio.
