I have seen references to Fort Seybert and Sivers' Fort that make me think they may be one and the same--the location and the time period are right.
I have also seen the following:"Jacob Seybert (Siver)".
In one history of early frontier life in Virginia, Elizabeth Sivers, Catherine Sivers and Margaret Sivers are listed as Augusta Co. citizens taken as captives in 1758--are these the Seybert daughters of Jacob and Elizabeth Seybert as mentioned in Message #174?It would be an amazing coincidence if they are not.
Has anyone seen anything that would connect Seybert to Seaver(s), Seiver(s), Siever(s), Sever(s), Siver(s)?
I am researching the Seaver (all the spelling variations just mentioned) family of southwest VA and northeast TN.I have long suspected that they are of German descent and not related to the Seaver family of New England.
