Cawvey, Cawby Families in MO, IL, IN, KY
I recently did some research on the Cawby family in the Lincoln Co., NC records in SLC. I am fairly well convinced that Johannes / John Cauvey /Gauvey [30 variations in NC records] born c. 1732 in Germany was the progenitor of the family. He had issue with unknown 1st wife: John, Joseph, David, Eleanor, Martin, Jacob, & Christina.
John, Sr., Martin, and David went to KY in 1808/9. David on to MO [d. 1811], Joseph & Jacob followed to KY. Jacob went to IL. Martin stayed in Jessamine Co. Not sure about Joseph. The two girls died in NC. John, Jr. may have as well.
His children & descendants went to MO, IL, IN & elsewhere.
