Chancery Records of Okaloosa County, FL, Book #8, page 588, shows a divorce matter for Murl Givens and a Robert W. Givens. The final decree date is 26 June 1950.

On a death certificate for Samuel Edward Givens, who died 8 March 1947 at the age of 4days, 12 hours, is listed as the father, Robert W. Givens and mother, Murl Riley. The death of an infant is a sore trial that tests the bonds of matrimony, as much as, if not more than other problems and challenges.
Andrew Givin, age 22 from SC appears in the 1880 Census of Escambia, FL. Will try to get more info on this, but just wondered if it is a Givens person!
Okaloosa News Journal Item, dated 8 August, 1919: "Ed Givens, who has been in France for something over a year, passed through here Wednesday en route to his home at Laurel Hill."

Does anyone know who this refers to?
