  2. The spelling of his first name varies, but he signed his will Elven and names his son that way. His marriage license spells it differently, Elvin, but that record also misspells his wife's first name and her last name. Bolton's 1848 history spells it Elvin, and Davis's 1988 Westchester Patriarchs, p. 129 spells it Elvan. I will stick with the spelling in his will.
