Born to Stephen Colvin and Mary Merrithew About 1796-1799 in Danby, Rutland Vermont.
He and his wife, Luranse Samantha Scott (daughter of Justus Scott and Edee Grilley) married in 1822 in Danby, and had 4 children there:
Zilla Colvin (1825-1907) m. Edwin Green
Capt. Alonzo Nelson Colvin (1826-1886) m. 1st Anna Congor, then he m. 2nd Sarah Maria 'Sallie' Stafford
Mary Colvin (1829-1907) m. Milo Remington
Job Henry Colvin (1839-1890) m. Hattie Maxham
He was a tanner and currier by trade, having worked at that business for many years. He was an upright, honest man, having won and retained the respect of all those who knew him. He was a member of the Masonic fraternity, being at the time of his death, one of the oldest Masons in town. He practiced the tenets of his profession, squaring his life by the square of virtue, and was well fitted for that Celestial Lodge above, where the Supreme architect of the universe presides. Late in life, he and his wife moved to Bennington with his daughter Mary and her husband Milo Remington. They both died in Bennington, and are buried in the Milo Remington plots in Old Bennington Village Cemetery on Morgan Street.
