Irvan family and branches mostly in Horatio, Arkansas Updated November 1, 2002
About Our Family Research
I have the fortune to have gotten the majority of the work in tracing my father's family done by a distant cousin who has devoted herself to preparations and knowledge gathering at each year's reunion in Horatio,Arkansas. I have some other sources such as a videotape done by my brother of the family home and the cemetery. I don't have info on my father's mother's line, though.Two Bishop sisters married two Irvan brothers.My grandmother Vera Beatrice Bishop is one daughter of Horace Greely Bishop and Arrie Mittie Rogers. Didn't get to the Irvan Reunion in Horatio this year, but I have photos from my mother and Misty Wolcott. Lots of Irvans in one place! As of July 16, 2002, my son Beren Rovay has left us after a long battle with cancer. He was 20.
