Many of the Knox and Anderson Co. Seaver, Seavers, Sievers, etc. are descended from William & Catherine (Peck) Seavers, who married in VA in 1793 or 1796 and were in TN by 1801. They had several children, some of whom stayed in the Knox/Anderson Co. area while others migrated to Nodaway Co, MO. William appears in the 1850 Nodaway Co, MO census, age 98. I believe that at least one son went from TN to KY, but I don't know the details.

I've been trying to connect him to the Seaver(s)/Sever(s) of Wythe Co, VA, Scott Co, VA and Hawkins Co. TN. There are some intriguing coincidences, but no proof of a connection yet.
