Thank you.The proper father of the family, according to the professional researcher we hired, is John Calvert who we refer to as the eldest.John died in Mifflin County, PA c. 1795.We believe his widow (first name uncertain) was still living in the county in 1900 and is listed under the name Colvert.The census taker had the bad habit of lising ladies whose husband passed on as Widow Jones, Widow Smith, etc.
The three brothers, John, Job, and Jacob, moved to Belmont County, c. 1798.They are dropped from the Mifflin County tax roles about this time. John and Job are definitely buried in Scatterday Cemetary in Belmont County.Jacob may be buried there or even in Marshall County, WVA.He moved from Belmont County to Morgan County, OH which is across the river from Marshall County.His father in law, Nathan Shepherd, is buried in Marshall County.Jacob was stronly influenced by Nathan Shepherd.
Widow Colvert has one daughter still living with her at the time of the 1800 census.This could be Sallie.It is possible that Sallie is a nickname.It is the name that is passed down through family lore.
Originally, I too was provided information from one of my Aunts that John, Job, Jacob, and Sallie's father was Cecilius.Cecilius was not in PA during this period and may have even been in KY.The strain of the family is more conversant with his moves than I.
I really appreciate your assistance.If I can help you in any way, let me know.
There is so much of the family history that was adulterated by the early 1900s attempt to gain an inheritance through the Baltimore line's claim to Maryland, that we have to verify every scrap of information we find.
