Elvington.—The Elvington family are to be found in Hillsboro. There were two old Elvingtons, brothers, of some note in Hillsboro — John and Jessee. The descendants of both, with their connections, are numerous; some of them are in the West.
Old John Elvington lived on the road from Gaddy's Mills to Nichols ; he raised a large family, sons and daughters of the sons, Zadoc Elvington still survives, and lives near the old homestead; has no children; had two sons, whom he lost in the war. In some respects he is a prodigy, which will not be further alluded to. He has made and has money, which it is said he does not much enjoy, except the satisfaction of knowing that he has it. He married one of the ten daughters of the late John Goodyear (all of whom, it is said, were good women, and made industrious and frugal housewives). Old man John Elvington was a good citizen. His other sons were William, John (commonly called Jack), and Owen. They are all dead. Owen was the father of our excellent and thrifty good citizen, George W. Elvington ; there may have been another son or two, not now remembered. He had several daughters ; one the wife of the late Henry Huggins ; one the wife of the late James Scott (she still survives) ; one the wife of the late Eli Scott, and perhaps others. The old gentleman was remarkable m one respect; he told the writer, when he was over seventy years of age, that he never saw a seed-tick or a red-bug in his life ; spectacles did him no good, yet his eyesight had not failed him and he could see as well in his old age as he ever could; his eyes were very peculiar—did not look like the ordinary eye—they sparkled or twinkled. ;
