I've just looked at this forum and think I can help you with some later descendants.
George and Elizabeth Criswell McIlvaine had 12 children.
One was Mary Ann McIlvain b 6 Sept 1845, d ?1919. She married
Marquis De Lafayette Miller, my 2nd great grandfather, 28 March 1861, Marshall Co WV
Marquis De Lafayette Miller b. 1839, d 26 Feb 1900, Marshall Co WV, buried with Mary Ann at Nauvoo Ridge Cemetery in Marshall Co. Civil War Veteran, see the WV GenWeb site for lots more information.

Susannah Sophia Miller b 21 Oct 1865
Sara E Miller b 25 Feb 1869
Allen Miller b. 19 Apr 1873
Marquis Lafayette Miller b 1875
this info from US Census records, see www.lindapages.com/12wvi/12-marmiller.htm which also has info on Marquis' civil war service.
Marquis and Alice are shown on the 1879 US Census Marshall Co WV although his name is misspelled as Magnus. I have Marquis' Civil War Discharge papers but do not have his medal. Marquis and Mary Ann were married 28 March 1861.
They are also mentioned in the US 1880 Census for Marshall Co WV.
Both Marquis and Mary Ann are buried at Nauvoo Ridge Cemetery in Marshall Co WV. Marquis died 26 Feb 1900. They lived in Bellarie, OH for a number of years, maybe as late as 1888.
Much of this information is on the Marshall Co. GenWeb site. It's very complete.
As of the 1880 census their daughter Alice A. is mentioned.

Feel free to contact me if you want copies of these pictures. I haven't yet had a chance to scan them but will do it on request. I apologize for the gaps in information, I may have it but my problem is too much stuff all at once. Am digging as fast as I can and will provide more to anyone interested (let me know) when I find it.
