Thanks for writing back. My memory is sketchy about all this from my grandmother(james and nadine colvert's daughter). I do recall on a trip to Warrenton, VA, my parents trying to find info on Asa, and before. Somehow I seem to remember that someone said Asa ran away to sea at a young age, but I may be mistaken. The illegitimate question came up in my brother's research in the late 70's, but he has passed away, and I believe the info with him. I don't know if Asa was the issue, or his parents or grandparents.
The pictures of the Colvert side I remember were several, and were studio photos, I forgort to indicate; my brother had them and his house burned, and I didn't ever get around to asking my sister if they were ever recovered from the fire.
I do remember a picture also of, I seem to believe of W.L. among Grandmother's things, and he was quite elderly, and incidentally had a cane/walking stick in the portrait! Oh, my, I hope they survived!
I will let you know sometime in the next few days. Also, I may be making an email change, so an alternate email is: firstname.lastname@example.org
