I am still seeking the parents of my GGG grandmother Manervia (Minerva)Elkins Silver, b abt 1825 possibly Yancey, Burke or Buncombe, who married Green Berry Silver Jr. in Yancey Co NC before 1840. They were living in Yancey with a small daughter who would be Elizabeth in the 1840 census. She married first cousin Silas S. Silver s/o Wm Riley Silver.
By 1845, Minerva and Greenberry had migrated to Greene Co Tn.and had several children there including my great grandfather Levi "Bud" Silver.
By 1859, they had migrated to Gilmer Co Ga. next to Greenberry's father John Jackson Silver, first son of Rev War patriot George Silver Jr. I have had information given to me stating that she was of the Alanson or Armisted Elkins families of Yancey, but no factual documentation has been supplied. Thanks for any help.
