Neither this "daughter" nor the "Elizabeth Colvin" noted by the same poster can be substantiated in census records where James appears with Alethea. (1860-1880) Nor in those census where Alethea appears post-James' death 1870-1900 where she is with her daughter, Katy Bell [Colvin] Tapscott. Documented evidence welcome.

Aunt Dot and Aunt Elizabeth were the daughters of GEORGE COLVIN and MAMIE FREEMAN. GEORGE COLVIN was the son of JAMES (JIM) COLVIN and ALETHEA PRESTON PINN. When James died, Mama Kate (Alethea's daughter) went to live with she and her husband Murray Tapscott. Hope that clears it up.

If you would be so kind as to explain your source regarding Elizabeth Colvin as the daughter, since this person (or name variation) never appears in the records. I have been able to correct that Dorthy Colvin (Aunt Dot to you) does, in fact, appear with her parents George B. Colvin and Mary V[irginia] Freeman in the 1910 census, so that's good news. There also appears a Mary E. Colvin, age 2. Is this the person you're calling Elizabeth? I'm open to considering what you have available.
Kind regards,
A.
