Notes

Note N3620Note on ancestry.com says that family tradition says he died at age 106.
The Margaret Sarver who died in 1806 at age 90 is probably his mother.

John Sarver was the son of Casper Sarver a Swiss emigrant. Casper left a will
in Botetourt Co., VA in 1782 naming three sons: John, Henry and Casper. John
and Henry Sarver moved to Sumner Co., TN. John and his wife Peggy Trollinger
daughter of Jacob Henrich Trollinger came to Sumner Co., TN in the spring of
1808 with six of their seven children. According to a family tradition, John
Sarver died at 105 years after drinking dye he mistook for whiskey. He is
thought to be buried in a family cemetery located on his son Jeremiah Sarver's
Belvidere Plantation in upper Sumner Co., TN.

My fourth great grandfather, John SARVER, son of Casper SARVER, was born ca. 1744/45.
He lived in Botetourt Co., VA before moving to Sumner County, TN where he bought land
in March 1808. His wife's name is unknown but she was living in 1830 when census shows
1 male 80 - 90, 1 female 70 - 80, 8 slaves. In 1840 he is shown as 1 male "100 and upwards"
with 17 slaves. (Possible Grandfather of Andrew Sarver)
Public records show that John was still living in Feb. 1842 but is not found in 1850. His
great grandson, "Mr. Alf" SARVER (1852 - 1948) told me that John was German and never
learned to speak English well. He said John died at age 105 from drinking dye which he
thought was whisky. Another source says he died at age 106. “
