Jacob Nevils

Jacob Nevil(s), Jr. married Elvina Kirkland on 4 Feb 1836 (Chatham County Marriages, 1806-1851, p 151; Certificate # 1803. "NEVIL, Jacob, m. Miss Elvira KIRKLAND; 4 Feb 1836/0". From the book "Marriages of Chatham County, Georgia, Volume I, 1748-1852", p 168; 1993; Compiled by the Genealogical Com, Ga Hist Soc). The marriage certificate issued 4 February 1836 but never recorded as returned. Nevil family tradition however accepts that as their marriage date.

According to the 1880 US Census, Jacob and his wife Elvina lived in District 17, Liberty County, Georgia, with their son Cuyler Nevils, his wife Ann and their five children: Elvina, Thomas, Sarah E, Jacob and William D. His name was recorded as Jacob Nevils; and his age was recorded as 68. (Date of record: 1 Jun 1880; Enumeration date: 23 Jun 1880. Year: 1880; Census Place: District 17, Liberty, Georgia; Roll: 155; Family History Film: 1254155; Page: 96B; Enumeration District: 069; Image: 0546. From the website, 11 May 2012.) Jacob died shortly after the census enumeration of 1880. It is likely, though unconfirmed, that both Jacob and Elvina died in Liberty County.
