      There were Sivils[spelled various ways] in Norfolk County in the 1600's.They were related probably to the Soloman and William Sivils who were inthe 1730 tax lists. By 1750, an Absolum Sivils was living in the adjacenthousehold to Soloman per the tax list for that year. I suspect thatAbsolum was a son but he wasn't named in Soloman's will probated in 1769.By 1756, Absolum was named in court records along with wife Courtney ? sohe would have been born by 1735[probably before 1730]. Absolum died c1795testate and named sons Samuel, Soloman and Absolum plus severaldaughters. A few years later, Samuel and Absolum moved to Trigg Co. NC.Absolum,Jr. was born 28 Sep 1773 according to info in the Ancestral Filesof the Morman Church. That file also shows that his mother was namedCourtney. Since the order that the sons were named in Absolum Sr's willindicates that Absolum was the youngest son, all three sons were probablyborn to Courtney. At the time Absolum Sr. died, his wife was named Mary[probably Wallace]. A William Wallace,Sr was his named executor. AWilliam Wallace Jr. was a witness to his will. This Wallace name createda great deal of speculation on my part because one of the three apparentSivils brothers who later appear in McMinn Co TN was named Wallis W.Sivils.He died there in the 1840's and is buried in a marked grave nearthe bank of the Hawassee River less than a mile upriver from the I75bridge. The inscription supposedly states that he was born 16 Jan 1789and died 22 Mar 1847 and that he was the 'son of S and M Sivils'. Therewere four Sivils in or from Norfolk Co. whose name began with a 'S' andwho could resonably be Wallis' father. A Simon was in Camden Co NC andhad a wife named Mary. He died in 1803 and left a will. he had eightchildren that he named but no Wallis, Jeptha or Absolum. When his wifeMary died she also left a will naming seven of the same eight. There wasanother Soloman in Norfolk Co who died in 1799. He did not have a wifeand named no children. He left all to sisters and cousins. The Samuel whowent to Trigg Co was also eliminated but I do not remember how. I'll haveto revisit that. In Norfolk deed book 35, page98,a deed dated 1 Apr 1794,Soloman Sivils and wife Mary of Norfolk Co. to James Warden, 104 acres ofland John Warden had willed to his two sons who both died intestate andwithout heirs except for their sister Mary Savills, then Mary Warden. InWill Book 2 Folio 21, proven Oct 1773, John Warden's will named sonsWilliam, John, and Wallis;Dau. Mary; and wife Elizabeth. In Will Book 1,Folio 177, proven June 1768, John Wallis named Dau. Elizabeth Warden andher three sons Wm.,John and Wallis. In DB 41, pg.46,dated jan 27, 1798,Soloman and wife Mary sell the last of their property in Norfolk to hisbrother Absolum and the deed states that Soloman and Mary are 'of HalifaxCo., NC'. In the 1800 census of Halifax, page 342,Soloman Seavils islisted as follows; 2 Males 0-10;2 males 10-16;1 male 26-45;1 female16-26; and 1 female 26-45. This certainly fits with Wallis, Jeptha, andAbsolum plus an older son and a first born daughter. I could not findthis family in 1810 or 1820 but I think that they were in Guilford Colater because the families that they seemed to be associated with inMcMinn [Trotters,Levi Only, And Evans] were all from Guilford. I thinkthat the evidence is pretty overwhelming that Soloman and Mary were theparents of the three Sivils men in McMinn Co. If they had had a commonname I would be hesitant to say that. I would appreciate any comments.
