If you have ancestors from Ireland, are there any CALVIN/COLVIN surname males in your family who might participate in the Calvin/Colvin DNA group on FamilyTreeDNA? We really need more people in this surname study to help all of us with our ancestors.
My ancestors were from Creevlea/Crievelay townland near Clones in County Monaghan, Ireland. They were Presbyterian, but some also registered life events at the Church of Ireland (which was the official church). Our oldest proven ancestor is William Calvin/Colvin, born about 1757 and died 1837 at Creevlea in Clones parish. He's buried at Stonebridge Presbyterian Church cemetery.
This CALVIN/COLVIN family is said to be of French Huguenot descent, but we have no proven connection to a specific Huguenot ancestor yet.
I'm always glad to share information and research notes,
