Hi Ben. My mom is an Erven, born in Portsmouth, Hamilton County, Ohio, 1934. Her dad, Marion Dale Erven b 1882 Cincinnati. His dad, Francis Marion Erven b 1848 same. HIS dad, Isaac Erven Sr b 1807, d 1891, buried Colerain Township. Isaac's dad, William (H?) Erven bc 1786 (prob. VA) d Hamilton OH.
I'll pass your message on to my mom. She has alot of Ohio Erven info. I notice your post is many months old. Have you gained any ground since?
This is my first visit to the GenForum. Glad to find another Erven!--Kate
