Re: Covin Family - Albany, GA African American
I am researching my ancestors that descend from the original Covin in South Carolina. However, I find many African American's with the Covin surname. I would very much to find a link between the two family heritages if they exist.
I have not found any evidence to date (I have not done a lot of deep investigating) that showed African American Covins residing in the same location as Covins of European descent.
What I did find that might indicate that there is not a link between the two families is the existence of a place in Haiti that is called Covin. If you Google 'Covin+Haiti' you will find info.
As far as I concerned, all Covins are related in some way.
Good luck in your research.
