Hi, I am not a Velvin descendant. I came across that surname looking at Ellis and Collier research in Surry Co VA. Thought I would pass it along. If anyone has a connection to my interest surnames, please share with me. Ginny Keeferrkeeferjr@mediaone.net

I looked in Virginia Colonial Abstracts series and Cavaliers & Pioneers series and could not find this surname. Apparently they came to Virginia as late as ca 1800's.
