Notes for ANDREW COVEL:
Notes by Teri Dimmett


It seems, after much research, that there was only one Andrew (in the southern states), even though we've seen dates of birth, such as: the 1900 & 1930 has him b. 1831, the 1880 & 1910 has birth 1833 and in 1870 has him b. 1848. I wonder if he knew how to count, tell time, etc. He appears a different age each record. I checked all spellings of the surname and came up with only this one Andrew in the south.
Also, I'm not sure which woman is the mother of what children.
