    I’m lookin to find any information on my Silvers Family. My ggg grandfather was Jesse Silvers (photo posted in my album) was born in Pulaski county KY in 1821. He left for Marion county OH and resided there for 8 years before moving to Davis county Iowa and married Sylva Ellen Trullinger. His father was a William Silvers Jr. Born in NC or VA. Looking for any info on this William Silvers Jr. Maybe connected into a Silvers line on this forum.

    Thank you again for all your assistance.

    I started doing research on the Silvers for my best buddy whose mother was a Silvers. She was a sweet lady who always was enamored by the likeness I shared with her brother. Their family stories were fixated upon being Blackfoot and they lived in Oklahoma in Pawnee territory where they were treated poorly by them. My research has taken me to Pulaski Co. Ky and a man named John Jordon Silvers born 1815 in Pulaski whose father was a Hugh Silvers born Rowan Co. NC 1778 married to Elizabeth Davis. Now I still have to confirm this with more documentation but it seems to be correct at this time. I have not come across a Jesse but I have no siblings or cousins discovered yet.

    Interesting. I just found out more about the Silvers line recently. I always thought they were English, but sourced information puts them in Rowan County NC in the 1750’s. William Silvers is listed in the North Carolina Militia in 1759 along with Daniel and John Boone. It is mentioned that the family is Irish, and maybe from Newry, Amargh, Ireland. Ulster Scots? Hard to say. They end up in Pulaski County KY late 1700’s ….early 1800’s in the Burnside/Somerset area. Some stay in KY. My ggg grandfather was born in 1821 moved to Ohio to live with his mothers parents when he turned 18. Then makes the trek through Indiana/Illinois and meets my ggg grandmother Sylva Ellen Trullinger and gets married in Bloomfield Illinois. They move to Decatur County Iowa and settle in Garden Grove and then High Point Township. Her brother Milton Stone owned a farm near Mt Ayr and he used his home to assist slaves escaping on the Underground Railroad from MO on their way to Canada. I will let you know if I find a connection to your Silvers. It’s likely they are related because the Silvers family often repeated the same names in succeeding generations. One of Jessie’s brothers coincidentally or not is named Hugh Silvers.

    I don’t know if you had already seen this. Dreaminghawk posted it on another thread recently. I noticed the name Silver as I was reading through it, and remembered your post.

    Says there it is known surname for Haliwa in Halifax and Warren Co NC towards the bottom of the article.

    Apologies if it was already in one of the threads you read searching the name.
