If you will send me email w/ Address, I will send you the breif histroy of the Couvains.
They simplified it to Covin in USA. He tried Couven and Couvin before leaving it at Covin.
Boy, that was something. I don't think I've ever said my name and they got spelling even close.
We go back to the French Hugenots. Don't know if that is all that good, but the Blood covers all sins.
Alvin must have been a brother or cousin or child of Festus Ezra Covin born in 1880.
Because of the Couvain origination supposedly all the Covins are related.
Maybe you have the generation book that Alvin D. Covin Sr. put together. He is the editor.
Alvin denotes he is 6th generation.
Covins tend to have a lot of girls so our branch of Covin's dies with my brother and I.
Not that we just have to carry on that name. It's the Name above all Names we profess.
I had two girls and my brother had two girls
so the Elmer branch who was Fetus's son dies out with us.
You didn't say Sr. in your question but with a birthdate of 1896 it must be Sr.
Do you have his edited copy of Covin history.
If not, just email me your address
