John Colver1

b. circa 1672, d. 1760
Father*John Colver2 b. 15 Apr 1640, d. b 2 Dec 1732
Mother*Mercy Clark3,4,5 b. c 1644
Birth*circa 1672John Colver was born in New London, New London County, Connecticut, circa 1672.5,6,7,8
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 For the most part, after the fifth generation, COLVER had been replaced by CULVER.9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
Burial* and was buried in the Culver Burying Ground located on the farm of his son Robert at Schooley's Mountain.13

Marriage*She married first Ephraim Tuttle, son of John Tuttle and Mary Burrows, in Connecticut.1
(Daughter) RelocationSarah, with her husband Ephraim and their children, moved In the early 1730s with Sarah's parents, Sarah and John Colver, from the New London area of Connecticut to New Jersey with a group of Rogerenes. The group, which totaled 21 in all, included Sarah's uncle, 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.2,1,4

Marriage*1738She may have married second, as his second wife, Richard Mann, son of Richard Mann and Elizabeth Sutton, by 1738 in New Jersey. Tuttle-Tuthill Lines reported that Sarah married second ______Mann, "probably Richard", so it's possible that her second husband was first the husband of her sister Mary.1

  4. [S225] Wikipedia Free Encyclopedia, online at www.wikipedia.org, The Rogerenes (also known as the Rogerens Quakers or Rogerines) was a religious sect founded in 1674 by John Rogers (1648–1721) in New London, Connecticut. Rogers was imprisoned and spent some years there. He was influenced by the Seventh Day Baptists and the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) and opposed the Established Puritan church. Rogerenes initially held to a Seventh Day (Saturday) Sabbath, but over the years began to regard each day as equally holy. Their disdain for Sunday worship often brought them into sharp conflict with their neighbors. Increasingly they adopted a Pacifist stance, including war tax resistance, which further brought them the ridicule of the larger community. Some of the Rogerenes left Connecticut and migrated to New Jersey settling in parts of present-day Morris County. One such group settled in what is now the Landing section of Roxbury Township, New Jersey near Lake Rogerine, then known as Mountain Pond in about 1700. Another smaller group of Rogerenes in about 1734 settled on the eastern side of Schooley's Mountain near present-day Hackettstown, New Jersey. Rogerene worship services continued through the early 20th century in Connecticut. Hereinafter cited as Wikipedia Encyclopedia.

Thomas Colver1,2

d. 26 October 1852
ChartsDescendants of John Heaton of Lincolnshire, including the Immigrant Nathaniel
Father-Possible*Ephraim Colver3 d. b 8 Mar 1786
Birth*Thomas may have been born in New Jersey, the son Thomas of Ephraim Colver.3
Relationship Note* Although no actual proof has yet been found to determine the ancestry of the Thomas Colver who would marry Rachel Heaton, circumstantial evidence abounds. It has appeared clear from the beginning of our Colver research that Thomas was a descendant of Edward Colver, the Puritan founder of the family of Colver-Culver in America who first appeared in Boston, Massachusetts in 1635. Edward Colver in Massachusetts in 1635, however, was a long jump to Thomas Colver with Rachel Heaton in Virginia and Pennsylvania in the early and mid 1800s. Fortunately, our Heaton family immigrants also started in Massachusetts in 1634. As we joined some of the Heatons on their journeys, we left Massachusetts for Connecticut, and then New Jersey, Virginia, West Virginia, Pennsylvania and beyond. We began to make some connections when we met the Tuttle family in New Jersey. The Tuttles led us to the Colvers, and the intermarriages between those two families led us back to the Heatons. Our "aha! moment", which became our final step in selecting this particular Thomas Colver as the husband of Rachel Heaton, was identifying Rachel's father Isaac Heaton as the administrator appointed for the estate of Thomas Colver's double cousin, Ephraim Tuttle 3rd. Let's see... where to start... Rachel's father Isaac Heaton's brother Samuel Heaton married Abigail Tuttle who was an aunt of Ephraim Tuttle 3rd whose grandfather Thomas Colver Sr. was also the grandfather of Thomas Colver, Rachel Heaton's husband. This generational mess of "coincidence", which we believe is actually the messenger of truth, has led us to select this Thomas Culver as the husband of "our" Rachel Heaton.4,5,6,7,8
(Grandson) Will6 March 1786Thomas Colver was named as a beneficiary in the will of his grandfather, Thomas Colver Sr., dated 6 March 1786 in Roxbury, Morris County, New Jersey. He left the real estate, where he then lived, to be divided into three equal parts and distributed to his sons, Amos and Simon, and to his grandson Thomas, the son of his deceased son Ephraim. His grandfather's will included bequeaths to his other children and grandchildren, and then directed that his moveable estate, both goods and chattels, be equally divided between his three sons, Amos, Thomas and Simon. Thomas and his brother Simon were named as their father's executors.9,7,6
Religion*He was a member of the Goshen Baptist Church, Whitely Township, Greene County, as was his future wife Rachel Heaton.10
Marriage*He married Rachel Heaton, daughter of Isaac Heaton and Hannah Bowen.2,1,11,12
Name-SpellingsA variation of the spelling of the COLVER surname found in our research was CULVER.1
Occupation*Thomas was an early attorney.10
Census 1810*1810Thomas Colver appeared on the 1810 census as the Head of Household in Morgan, Greene County, Pennsylvania. Their household consisted of one male ages 26 thru 44, one female ages 26 thru 44, one male under age 10 and one female under age 10.13
Census 18201820Thomas Colver, his surname transcribed as "Culver", appeared on the 1820 census as the Head of Household in Morgan, Greene County, Pennsylvania. Their household consisted of one male over the age of 45, one female over the age of 45, one female age 26 thru 44, one male age 16 thru 25, and one female age 10 thru 15. Two members of the household worked in agriculture.14
Relocation*after 7 August 1820Sometime after 7 August 1820, when the 1820 census was taken, Rachel and Thomas Colver moved to Brooke County, Virginia.1
(Son-in-Law) Land RecordsNovember 1823Thomas received a Power of Attorney dated November 1823 from his mother-in-law Hannah Heaton, which appointed her two sons-in-law, Thomas Colver and Isaac Buckingham, of Greene County, Pennsylvania and Washington County, Pennsylvania, respectively, to act on her behalf in the settlement of her deceased brother John Bowen's estate in Frederick County, Virginia. John, late of Frederick County, had died intestate possessed of considerable Virginia real and personal property. His estate was being administered by Hannah's nephew, Rees Hill Esq.15
Research Notes* Heaton Families II identified a third child, Sarah, for Thomas and Rachel (Heaton) Colver. Sarah was reported to have married a William Frost and had a son, Thomas Frost. No evidence has been found, however, to verify the information and Tenmile Country mentioned only two children for Rachel and Thomas.1,10
Death*26 October 1852He died on 26 October 1852 in Brooke County, Virginia.1,10

Relocation*1733 Following his brother John's death at Black River in 1733, Thomas moved his family again to Schooley's Mountain, Hunterdon County, New Jersey, where his parents and other family members had settled upon their relocation to New Jersey.3
Relocation*Thomas and his brother John Colver were believed to have traveled to Black River, Hunterdon County, New Jersey, in advance of the relocation of their parents and other family members. John's young children and his wife, who was expecting their third child, probably remained in Connecticut, and Thomas, who had already sold his Connecticut property, probably took his wife and family with him to New Jersey.3
(Son) Relocation1735 About 1735, three years after the death of his grandfather, Thomas's parents moved the family away from Schooley's Mountain1
(Son) Relocation1746 and about eleven years later Sarah and John Colver returned to Schooley's Mountain with their sons Thomas and Robert.1

He left his remaining real estate, where he then lived, to be divided into three equal parts and distributed to his sons, Amos and Simon, and to his grandson Thomas, the son of his deceased son Ephraim. To his daughter Lydia Colver, he bequeathed the 15 acres she had already received and where she had formally lived, to be taken before the division was made between his two sons and grandson. He directed that his moveable estate, both goods and chattels, be equally divided between his three sons, Amos, Thomas and Simon, and that 5 pounds be paid to Ephraim Tuttle 3rd, out of his moveable estate, by his three sons. Colver-Culver Additions and Corrections suggested that Ephraim Tuttle 3rd was, perhaps, another grandson, son of his other, unnamed, daughter.7,6,8
Death*before 27 September 1786He died before 27 September 1786, the date his will was probated in Morris County, New Jersey.9
