Adeline Silveys will (wife of John Silvey) leaving every thing to daughter Katie Silvey Spear.

John Silvey has left behind him the splendid business establishment which will bear his honored
name are abiding monument to his integrity of character and his wide awake business enterprise.
Mr. Silvey was born in Jacson Co. Ga. Dec 31 1817, son of Abraham Silvey.(It did not give his

What is know about John Silvey is that he was son of Drury and Mary Ann Womack. Could it be that Drury Silvey was Drury Abraham Silvey or Abraham Drury Silvey.
