Lincoln,

I don't have those names in my database yet. However, I know of two principal lines that might lead to a Seivers (or other spellings) in the Knoxville, TN area. One would be William Seavers 1752-1852, who moved on to MO, but some of his children stayed in the Anderson/Knox area. The other line would be the descendants of Joseph and Jeremiah Seaver(s) who moved from Wythe Co. VA to Hawkins Co, TN in the 1820s. Both Joseph and Jeremiah had large families, and some of them moved on to Grainger Co, TN. A move from Grainger to Knox Co. would be logical migration. Joseph and Jeremiah were brothers to my husband's grgrgrandfather, John. The person who has the most information on Joseph and Jeremiah is probably Jane Fairburn, a descendant of Jeremiah. I think you can find some of her posts on some of the other Genforum lists--Seaver, Seavers, etc.--and get her e-mail address from there.

I think most of the TN Seavers are from VA families, although some may come from a group that was in NC.

I'm in the process of trying to get all of the Seavers (all spelling variations) that I haven't managed to connect to John's line yet into a database, in the hopes that I'll be able to make connections. If I come across a likely connection to Clark, I'll let you know.

Good luck,
Pat
