I really believe that the Samuel who married Susanah was a brother to Joshua, simply because of circumstantial evidence.You mentioned that Joshua and Susanah were adminstrators of Samuel's estate.Where did you get this information?Is it in the Rowan County records?Do you have a copy of this?I'm mainly interested in Joshua, who is my 4th ggrandfather and am trying to figure out who he belongs to!!
Thanks so much!
I think that they were THREE Samuel Deavers in Rowan Co NC. According to the book Rowan Marriages 1753-1868, Samuel Deaver m. Elizabeth Farmer, 23 Feb 1787. Samuel Deaver m. Cloha Harvis (Jarvis) 16 May 1821. According to other people's information this Samuel was the son of Samuel and Elizabeth. I think the THIRD Samuel m. Susanah Hausen (Hauser) 4 Feb 1814. I THINK this Samuel and Joshua who married Rebecca Houze (Hauser) were brothers. The Samuel who married Susanah died in 1820; therefore, he could NOT have married Cloha Jarvis in 1821. Susanah and Joshua Deaver were the administrators of Samuel's estate.
