Brickwall - Calvin and Bohney

Untangling the Confusion on Kirtland Calvin

By Pamela Pattison Lash

I recently received an email query on the ancestry of Kirtland Calvin.  The query asked whether this Kirtland, father of Zola Fay Calvin, was really born a Calvin or was he a Bohney?  I hope this information that I found is helpful and clears up the confusion of Kirtland Calvin’s parentage.  I would welcome any new data to pass along to the researcher.
