RE: Linville???
I think we may be related. I am putting together my family tree. I am at work now and don't have all the names with me, but my Grandfather was Ray Linville. I am related to the Parr & Wright families. My Great great Grandfather was Abraham Linville (Iowa), and Charles Edward Linville (Iowa) was my great Grandfather. Most of my family is from Mills county Iowa, however my mother and father moved to Canada before I was born. I was wondering if you have any info that could help me? I also believe I am somehow related to the Delavan family. Thanks!
Hi Emily,
Yes, I believe we are related. Your grandfather Ray Linville and my grandfather Dallas Delavan were 2nd cousins and that would make us 4th cousins. Abraham Linville's wife was Samantha Delavan, the sister of my great great grandfather Hiram Delavan. I have the Delavan line back a few more generations and also some info on the descendants of Abraham and Samantha. I will send another message to your email address and maybe we can communicate that way. Thanks for contacting me!
