The will also stated that if Reverend Colman's grandson John Dennie died before reaching the age of 22 years, his £3000 legacy should be paid by his Executors in equal shares to the then surviving grandchildren of his beloved brother John Colman of Boston, Esq., further clarifying the bequests by naming the recipients as the sons or daughters of his beloved nephews or nieces, which he called cousins in the will, John Colman, Benjamin Colman, Mrs. Judith Bulfinch and Mrs. Sarah Chardon, all of Boston.4

Edward Colver1

Name-SpellingsAnother spelling of the COLVER surname found in our research was Culver. The original spelling of the name, and therefore the "correct" spelling, was COLVER. In early New England, where the name was spelled CULVER, it was usually the spelling used by persons not members of the family, especially in the copying of records or preparing indexes. As members of the family moved away from Massachusetts to Connecticut, Vermont, New Jersey and beyond, CULVER became more common with later generations. For the most part, after the fifth generation, COLVER had been replaced by CULVER.2
Marriage*19 September 1638He married Ann Ellice, daughter of Joseph Ellice and Ann ______, on 19 September 1638 in First Church, Dedham, Massachusetts Bay Colony. Their marriage was the second entered in the records of the First Church of Dedham, which probably at that time consisted of a small congregation meeting in the houses of the members. The Reverend John Allyn was the pastor, having been ordained shortly before performing the Colver marriage.3,4

Marriage*1849She married Joseph Gist, son of Cornelius Howard Gist and Clara Reinecker, in 1849.3,1
Census 1850*17 August 1850Elizabeth and Joseph Gist appeared on the 17 August 1850 census in District 4, Brooke County, Virginia, in the household of his mother Clara Gist. Joseph, age 34, was a farmer with real estate valued at $7,875. Joshua Gist, age 32 and an M.D., appeared as the Head in the neighboring household with real estate also valued at exactly $7,875, leading us to believe that he was likely Joseph's brother. Also listed with Joseph and Elizabeth, who was age 24, were their infant daughter Louisa Gist, age 1/12, another Clara Gist, age 15, and two male laborers. The younger Clara, while believed to have been a relative, was probably too old to have been a daughter of either Joseph or Joshua, and too young to have been their sister. Her relationship to the extended Gist family has not yet been determined.4
Census 1870*25 June 1870Elizabeth and Joseph Gist appeared on the 1870 census taken on 25 June 1870 in Wellsburg Post Office, Buffalo Township, Brooke County, West Virginia. Joseph, age 50, was a farmer with real estate valued at $64,000 and personal property at $7,180 and Elizabeth, age 44, was keeping house. Five of their children resided with the couple in 1870. Samuel was age 19, Rachel 16, Joshua 14, Mary 9, and young Joseph was 5. Two others, both born in Pennsylvania, also lived in the household. Maria Westlake was age 20, and Robert Patterson was 12.6

Name-SpellingsAnother spelling of the COLVER surname found in our research was Culver. The original spelling of the name, and therefore the "correct" spelling, was COLVER. In early New England, where the name was spelled CULVER, it was usually the spelling used by persons not members of the family, especially in the copying of records or preparing indexes. As members of the family moved away from Massachusetts to Connecticut, Vermont, New Jersey and beyond, CULVER became more common with later generations. For the most part, after the fifth generation, COLVER had been replaced by CULVER.3
Marriage*before 8 August 1665He married Mercy Clark, daughter of James Clark, in New London, Connecticut, before 8 August 1665, the date John and his wife "Marcye" sold land "given us" by John's father.4,5,6

In early New England, where the name was spelled CULVER, it was usually the spelling used by persons not members of the family, especially in the copying of records or preparing indexes. As members of the family moved away from Massachusetts to Connecticut, Vermont, New Jersey and beyond, CULVER became more common with later generations. For the most part, after the fifth generation, COLVER had been replaced by CULVER.9
Marriage*He married Sarah Long, daughter of Thomas Long and Sarah Wilcox, probably in New London, Connecticut.1,3,5
Baptism30 June 1695John was baptized as an adult with his sister Abigail on 30 June 1695 at First Church, Stonington, New London County.10
(Brother-in-Law) EstateAfter his sister-in-law Jerusha died on 11 January 1722/23, her brothers William Long and David Ensign Jr. were granted Administration of her estate in Hartford County. Distribution to Jerusha's brothers and sisters was ordered, which included John's wife Sarah Colver. Also in the probate file was a demand from John for 10s for reimbursement of money he had loaned to Jerusha, and also for wool and the combing of it.5
Religion*26 July 1725Sarah and John Colver were members of the Rogerenes, a small religious sect that originated in the vicinity of New London, Connecticut before the year 1700. They strongly opposed the established Puritan church, and initially held to a Seventh Day, Saturday, Sabbath. Over the years, however, they began to regard each day as equally holy. Their disdain for Sunday worship, which they expressed disruptively and aggressively, often brought them into sharp conflict with their neighbors. On Sunday, 26 July 1725, a party of eight Rogerenes, which included John Colver and his wife Sarah Colver, who was called their "singing sister," were arrested and committed to prison for traveling on the Sabbath. They were tried the next day and said they were going to Lebanon at the request of Mary (Colver) Mann, the Culver's daughter, who had requested to be baptized by the Society. She was baptized after they arrived in Lebanon, and a few days later they baptized her brother-in-law, Elisha Mann.11,12
Relocation*In the early 1730s, Sarah and John Colver moved with at least some of their children from the New London area of Connecticut to New Jersey with a group of Rogerenes. The group, which totaled 21 in all, included their daughter Sarah and her husband, Ephraim Tuttle, John's brother Jabez Colver and other members of the Culver's extended family. They settled on the west side of Schooley's Mountain, Morris County, and were the earliest group of settlers in that part of Morris County for whom there is any record.13,1,14
Relocation*1735 About 1735, three years after the death of their father, John and Jabez Colver moved their families away from Schooley's Mountain13
Relocation*1746 and about eleven years later Sarah and John Colver returned to Schooley's Mountain with their sons Thomas and Robert.13
(Husband) Death1756John became a widower when Sarah (Long) Colver died in 1756.15,16
Death*1760He died in 1760 at Schooley's Mountain13

Herbert Wood (deceased) and prepared for publication by Donald Lines Jacobus, "Additions and Corrections to the Colver-Culver Genealogy", pages 140-143, noting her death in 1756 with the explanation that the inscription on her gravestone was read in 1938 by the Inscriptions Committee of the Genealogical Society of New Jersey. Then, in 1948, Mr. Wood, author of Colver-Culver Genealogy, found the stone in poor condition and read the year as 1766. "It should be noted, however, that this would place her birth in 1683, whereas her parents were divorced in 1681; also that John Culver's first child was baptized in 1696, and we have no reason to suppose that he had an earlier wife."
