My name is Charles "Chuck" Ivins, Jr. Here is some of the Ivins info I have so far:
I know that my great grandfather was Charles Ivins, born around 1869 around Camden, NJ.I've found him in the 1870 census New Jersey, Camden Co., North Ward Camden City, roll 856pg. 325 July 20, 1870 at age 1, with his parents,Charles (age 24) and Amanda Ivins, also enumerated with them is:
George Ivinsage 76, works on farm born in NJ wife?:Jucilla, Priscilla, or Drucillaage 78 (census records hard to read)
I don't know if Charles, born around 1846 (husband of Amanda) is the son, or some other relation, to George and Drucilla, but judging by the age difference (Drucilla would have been 54 when when Charles was born). Anyway, perhaps of more interest to you, I've been trying to find more information on George, and noticed a Benjamin Ivins listed in a portion of a message I received a while back:
"I do show Charles, born in 1846, as the child of George Ivins and Priscilla (nee Dunn) Ivins. I show Priscilla Dunn born about 1793; died 6 March 1881; buried Colestown Cemetery in Cherry Hill. Her father was a man named Frederick Dunn.....As to Priscilla Ivins's advanced age when she had Charles, who knows? In looking at the other children, I have Sarah born in 1811, then Benjamin three years later in 1814. Then, for 12 years, no children until Susanna was born--what was going on during those 12 years?? Four years later, Watson shows up in 1830, followed in quick succession by George the next year in 1831, with Elizabeth two years later in 1833. Then...again...a 13-year gap until Charles was born in 1846.... "
Do you think your Benjamin Ivins, with a son named George,could be the son of George Ivins (born 1794), and the Benjamin listed above, born in 1814?
