So far as I know, the family of Robert and Mary ROWAN IVEY are the only Iveys in the Effingham / Screven / Burke County area during that time period. I might be wrong about this, since the Burke County courthouse was twice burnt down prior to the Civil War.
Unfortunately, the harddrive on which I had most of those digital photographs of the Ivey plats and deeds stored has packed up and gone off into limbo. All of my efforts to access its contents have failed, so far. Still, though - I do have some of the deeds & plats (not all, though). I can e-mail them to you, if you want them. Perhaps you might recognize a neighbor, chain carrier, witness, or someone else that connects to your John IVEY.
We have a record of a Robert IVEY, Jr. having been born to this couple on April 30, 1789. Robert and Mary ROWAN IVEY appear to have been then residing in Effingham County.
My ggg-grandmother Mary Ann IVEY REDDICK appears to have been born in 1790 (based on later census records) and married my ggg-grandfather John REDDICK circa 1808 or '09. She co-signed on a deed of sale for the land of John's father in 1811, and their first born daughter Elizabeth REDDICK JENKINS was born circa 1810 and their second child (my gg-grandfather Nicholas REDDICK) was born in 1812.
And your John Ivey appears to have born in Effingham County in 1792.
Since Screven County was not formed until December of 1793 (formed out of both Burke and Effingham), then the placement of the Iveys in Effingham County at this time does seem to point to your John Ivey having been a part of that family of Robert and Mary ROWAN Ivey.
Of course, none of this is proven. But, perhaps it can be properly researched. The two earliest probate record books of Effingham County have been missing from the Effingham County courthouse. However, they appear to be recorded on microfilm at the Georgia State Archives. There may be a record for Robert & Mary ROWAN IVEY and their family amongst those two earliest probate record books.
I think we may have a record of three IVEY children for the family of Robert and Mary ROWAN IVEY from the circum 1789 through 1792 period - maybe, perhaps...
I hope that some of this helps.
