The land records are the fruits of the combined research efforts of Jane Fairburn, Angie Georgeoff, Bland Seaver and myself; I did the compilation.
There were 4 or 5 Sivert/Severt/Sievert men who arrived in Philadelphia in 1753 on two ships that arrived a couple of weeks apart--the Two Brothers and the Leathley. The Jesse Seaver history strongly implies that Jacob Seaver of Scott, VA and Switzerland, IN was a descendant of one of them.
It is known that Jacob's sister Elizabeth married James Lamar in Botetourt, VA and that the consent for the marriage was given by "Heinricj" Seaver. Since Henry's DoB is estimated at 1743, he would have been 10 when these Sivert/Severt/Sievert men arrived. It is my understanding that the names of women and minor children did not appear on passenger lists in the 1750s.
