Jacob SHIVER, Jr. (2)
(1789-????)

(A HUGE thank you to Ed Mason for his help in sorting out the confusion on the apparent "two Jacobs"! Ed is a descendant of John Jackson Shiver. Without his help, I doubt we'd have ever solved this. Thanks Ed!)

Jacob Shiver, Jr., is believed to be the second son of Jacob Shiver Sr. and Darcus ????, was born about 1789.

He married Mary ???? about 1817, probably in Georgia. To this marriage was born at least 8 children:

  1. Miss Shiver, b. abt. 1818
  2. Mr. Shiver, b. abt. 1820
  3. Miss Shiver, b. abt. 1822
  4. Mr. Shiver, b. abt. 1823
  5. Jacob J., b. 26 Jan 1825, d. 1 Dec 1907. (Married Rebecca SHIVER).
  6. Miles Kate, b. 23 Apr 1829, d. 14 May 1903. (Married (1) May Mary HARPER, (2) Evaline HARPER, (3) Lena LOGAN, (4) Sarah LONG, and (5) Margaret Ann PEELER).
  7. Miss Shiver, b. abt. 1830.
  8. Lydia, b. abt. 1832 (this is an uncertain link, but she appears in the Griffin SMITH household in Lee Co., GA on the next page in the census as an apparent domestic. At this point, it appears to be a good fit given the ages of Jacob's children from the 1840 census).
  9. Samuel A., b. abt. 1836.
  10. John, b. abt. 1840.

1850 Federal Census of 50th District, Lee County, Georgia
Enumeration Date: 3 Oct 1850
Page #304, Dwelling #508, Family #508

NAME AGE SEX OCCUPATION R/E VALUE BIRTHPLACE
Jacob SHIVER 61 M Blacksmith $30 S. Carolina
Mary SHIVER 48 F S. Carolina
Jacob SHIVER 22 M Farmer Georgia
Miles SHIVER 16 M Farmer Georgia
Samuel SHIVER 12 M Georgia
John SHIVER 10 M Farmer Georgia
Mary SHIVER 68 F S. Carolina

It is noted in this census that Jacob & Mary cannot read or write. Also, the Mary SHIVER, age 68, cannot read or write, and she is deaf & dumb. She is most likely Jacob's sister.


I do not have a death date for this particular Jacob, but I'm assuming it was before 1860, as I have yet to locate him in the 1860 census records.

If you can add any information to the above data or have any questions, please contact me at the address below. Thank you!
