  GENERATION   One

   ORSEN AUSTIN COVINGTON. Ref: 16359. Born: during 1818 at Kentucky KY. Father: not known, Father Ref: 0. Mother: not known, Mother Ref: 0.  Mar: 3 Jul

   1842 at Scott Cty KY to Carroll, Elizabeth 16360. Died: during 1860 at Ohio OH aged 42.  Known as Austin. Appears in 1860 Census living in Scott Co KY.

   Info from Betty Covington Griggs, Apr 2010 "With Orsen Austin, I have run into a wall only learning that he was born 1818 (birthplace, unknown), died in the

   USA State of Ohio in 1860 at the age of 42; no burial record.  Military records have not indicated any military service.  Based on date of death, it is possible he

    served in the Civil War.  Census records he was an attorney, turned farmer between 1850 and 1860.  While trying to learn more of him, I received a note from

   Ancestry's search that Orsen Austin had possibly immigrated to USA, port of departure or arrival, not known. 

  

   Ancestry informed me of a private tree owner (I assume in England somewhere) who had Orsen Austin Covington as a descendent of William Melton, born

   1620 in Melton, Mowbray, Lancashire, England.  I'm not able to substantiate this since the owner has classified his files as "private" and I'm not able to contact

   him/her. "
