My Great-Great Grandfather was David Elvey, born approx. 1850 in England. Came to U.S. about 1863 and lived in Philadelphia, Pa. He was a Brick Mason. Wife's name was Mary Emma (Barr?). Had children Elizabeth, Katherine (died young?), Caroline (my Great Grandmother), & David Jr.. Connections of some kind with the last names of Brown and/or Fry in Philadelphia could be possible. Any info is appreciated. Will be glad to share descendant info of Caroline Seebridge Coates (nee Elvey) b.1882 d.1910. This is the same Caroline Elvey mentioned in Renee's posting "Elvey/Coats" in this forum dated 01/27/2003. Looking for overseas connection for David Sr.'s parent's names and possibly beyond.
