Edwina, I apologize for taking so long to respond. The Abstracts of Will Books 1 and 2, 1774-1868, for Martin Co., NC, included the wills of both Robert Sherrod and his wife Lydia Llewellyn Sherrod. BOTH of them list Abba Shivers (Robert's will dated December 25, 1800) and Abbey Shivers (Lydia's will dated November 24, 1820. Also included are:
Robert's will: Sons John, Salathiel, Robert and Wilson. Daughters Abba Shivers, Salra Hyman, Salley Weathersbee, and Polly Best.
Lydia's will: Sons John, Salathiel and Wilson (Note: Robert had died ca 1810/1811). Daughters, Sabray Hyman, Salley Manning and Polly Best. Also mentions Abbey Shivers and children of John Sherrod and children of Robert Sherrod.
I hope this helps - it seems clear that your Abbey Shivers is the daughter of Robert and Lydia Sherrod.
