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

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
Residence*circa 1749Thomas finally settled his family near Drakestown, Morris County, New Jersey, circa 1749, purchasing 200 acres from Thomas Batson that year.4,5
(Husband) Deathbefore 6 March 1786Thomas became a widower when Lydia (Colver) Colver died, probably before 6 March 1786, the date Thomas wrote his will and didn't mention his wife.6
Will*6 March 1786Thomas Colver Sr. of Roxbury, Morris County, New Jersey, wrote his will dated 6 March 1786. He bequeathed to his son Thomas, that he shall possess and enjoy forever, the 40 acres more or less he, Thomas Jr., had already received and was then living on. 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
