I do not havemany dates on these people so I'm grabbing at straws here. You mentioned brothers William and James- I have record of my GGG grandmother having such named brothers and she was born in 1787... Here is what I have. I wouldgreatly appreciate it if you could share anything that may be a link to what I have...
Sarah Dever(Deaver ?) b. Oct. 9 1787 was my GGG Grandmother on my Dad's side. (She Married William McDowell Apr. 28th. 1809)
Sarah had 3 brothers that I have record of... James , John and William
Their parents are; Hannah Cuverly and John Dever (Deaver?) (Johnwas 2nd. Lieutenant, Maryland regiment, Continental Army. Commanded by Col. Mordicai Gist at White Plains, N.J. Sep. 9 1778; With General Gates at time of Burgoyne's surrender at Saratoga N.Y. )
Hanna and John settled near Portsmouth, Ohio in 1799 John died in Ohio ( I have no date) I have nothing on John's parents. Hanna's Father was DR. Cuverly ~ surgeon for the Continental Army.
I would appreciate if you could share with me anything that you have that might match.I have not found anything farther back with this particular family.
