The Gervens, Gerfens, Gerve's or Gerfe's are original from Germany, from the Wiehemountains. These mountains are the foothills of the Wesermountains near Porta Westfalica and Minden, after this begins the Northgerman Lowlands near Hannover. There are already Gervens in Holsen, Nord-Rhein-Westphalen,(Ger.) since 1650.

However in 1730 there are allready Gervens in Ireland and Scotland. From these people there emigrated some to the U.S.A. In this moment I don't know what to do with these info.
