bulletGeorge Vandiver(827) was born in 1774 in Virginia.(828) Based strictly on census data the birth date is bet 1780 and 1790. Durward Willoughby reconciles date as (bef 1778) ca 1774. And that George may have been born in N/S Carolina or states farther north. Durward felt that our Vandivers could probably be traced to New Jersey.

From 1870 Census records of their Grandson, Joseph (b. 1825, son of George H.) he states that his family was originally from Virginia. He Appeared in tax records between 1815 and 1816 in Muhlenberg Co., Kentucky. (829) He died after Jun 1816 in Muhlenberg Co., Kentucky. Death is based on his absence from tax records. The following profile of George Vandiver is provided by Durward Willoughby, Mar 1999.

Birth - est before 1778 ca 1774 (NC or SC possibly Va)
Married - est before 1799 ca 1797 (W. Tenn)
Died - ca 1816 Muhlenberg Co, Ky
Parents - William ? or George ? Parents: George (or possibly) William Vandiver.

He was married to Nancy before 1800. Nancy and George were probably married after 1798. This is assumed based on age of eldest child and wherein 1820 tax records there were 0 males > 21 as being in Nancy's family. George & Nancy came to Muhlenberg Co. Kentucky in 1815 from Tennessee. From the Birth date and place of their children we construct that they lived in Tennessee from 1810 - 1815. Their youngest daughter Gracy was born in Kentucky in 1816. Their other daughters Mahala (b. 1810), Lucinda (b. 1812), and Malinda (b. 1814) were born in Tennessee. We place George and Nancy in North/ South Carolina from at least 1799 to 1810, based on birth records of their sons. Their sons William (b. 1800), George H. (b. 1802), Charles (b. 1805), Henry (b. 1806) and Hiram (b. 1808) were all born in North/South Carolina.

George died in 1816 in Muhlenberg Co., Kentucky. Nancy died shortly before 1840 in Muhlenberg Co., Kentucky.

He was a Baptist Minister & Farmer after 1785. He immigrated in 1794 to Pendleton District, South Carolina. (298)(831) He died on 6 Jun 1833 in Pickens District, South Carolina.(831) George was born 2-3 months after his father died. He grew up in Loudoun Co., VA, where he resided after the Revolutionary War until 1783. In that year he followed his brother Edward to South Carolina. He was first mentioned as a "licentate" minister at Sandy Creek Baptist Church in Fairfield Co., SC in 1791.
About 1794, he moved his family to Pickens District. His property was on the SC side of the Tugaloo, across from Habersham Co., GA where his son Adam Poole Vandiver settled. He was an active minister, helping to establish several churches in Pendleton District, SC and Franklin Co., GA. His application for a Federal Pension was approved in 1833. He died in 1836.
Parents: George Vandiveer and Ann Harbin.

He was married to Mary Ann Poole in 1786 in Fairfield District, South Carolina. Children were: Phoebe Vandiver, Adam Poole Vandiver, Helena Vandiver, Mary Ann Vandiver, Enoch George Vandiver.

bullet George Vandiver III was born in 1764 in Loudon Co., Virginia. He died on 6 Jun 1833 in Pickens District, South Carolina. Parents: George Vandiver II and Anna Frost.

He was married to Mary Ann Poole.

bullet George (or possibly) William Vandiver was born est 1750 in Virginia. He immigrated to Virgina. Name is assumed based on the Dutch naming system for children.

He was married est 1770. Children were: George Vandiver .

bullet George H. Vandiver(832) was born on 16 Feb 1802 in North Carolina.(833) (834)(835) He Appeared in tax records in 1827 in Muhlenberg Co., Kentucky. (836) He died about 1829 in Muhlenberg Co., Kentucky. (837)(838) (839) George must have died before 1840, because the 1840 Census listed Elizabeth as the head of house.
The last time George Vandiver appeared on the Muhlenberg Co Tax Records was 1829. In 1840 Elizabeth Vandiver started appearing on the Tax Records. George was the 2nd son of George and Nancy Vandiver. Having died at and early age of 27 his later identity become obscured. Tracing our lineage was stuck with his son Joseph as there were no Census Records bearing the names of Joseph with George. George never appeared on a Census Record as Head of Household. It wasn't until a Court record was discovered bearing his name and our Joseph that we were able to prove his lineage.

George's identity as Joseph's father comes from a entry in the Muhlenberg Co., KY Order Book #5, where it states "p65, 29 May 1843, Solomen Biole or Beala, app. guardian to Joseph Vandiver orphan of George Vandiver dec'd with Francis Kertley his security $20.00."
NOTE: Joseph's first wife was Martha Beales.

When Joseph E. Vandiver (b.1956) a banker in Calhoun, McLean Co. was asked the identity of Joseph's father, he replied that he thought that it was a Henry Vandiver, as determined by his wife's grandmother (Elizabeth Cox-a noted genealogist and charter member of Ky Family Records). She also had that Henry's wife was a "Dorcas".
However, this is contrary to the 1843 Muhlenberg Co Court order identifying Joseph as the orphaned son of a George Vandiver. The 1850 Census for Daviess Co shows there is a Joseph enumerated with his father, Henry but this is a different Joseph. Also this record shows a Dorcas as a wife of Henry. -- This is an case of mistaken identity of our Joseph. These two Josephs were in fact first cousins.
Parents: George Vandiver and Nancy.

He was married to Elizabeth Mishler - Miller on 12 Nov 1824 in Muhlenberg Co., Kentucky.(840) In Jan 1997 I sought the services of various persons in my quest for the identity of Joseph Vandever's father. One person was a Mr. Elwood Shirley a noted genealogist that I had also used, and who had remarkable results, in my Warren family quest. Mr. Shirley called me on 21 Mar to report that he has had no success. His standard research pattern turned up some material that he could not sufficiently justify to make a statement of fact. He did say that as such, he felt that it was possible that Joseph could have been an orphan.
Later, 22 Apr, I received a volume of material That had been Fed Exed from the Muhlenberg Co. Chief Genealogist, Ms. Carol Brown. From the hundreds of pages
of material regarding the Vandivers or originally "Vanderveers", the following caught my eye. This material was from "Abstracts Administrators and Guardian Settlements, Muhlenberg County 1834 - 1909" by Brenda Collier Doss. which states:
"p65, 29 May 1843, Solomen Biole or Beala, app. guardian to Joseph Vandiver orphan of George Vandiver dec'd with Francis Kertley his security $20.00."
NOTE: Joseph's first wife was Martha Beales. Conclusion: 1 legal document linking Joseph with a George.
Then from the files of Dixie Matheny Normandy, 2504 W. Cornwallis Dr., Greensboro, NC 27408, the following "speculation" (in part):
Thomas Vandaveer of Delaware
Charles Vandaveer to N.C. and a Tory or King Sympathizer
Charles, Jr. - Tory
John Vandefer - Tory - married 9 Jan 1773, Rowan Co., NC
> George Vandaver - b. ca 1762, reported to have served with Francis Marion
Mary "Joris"
Nancy "Pettijohn" - m 19 Jan 1789 in Surry Co., NC.
Ashberry Vandeveer - a twin to George

Larry A. Warren - 4-22-97

George and Elizabeth were married only about 5 years when he died. Elizabeth was widowed with her children Joseph and Nancy. I does not appear that Elizabeth ever remarried. Because George died at such a young age was but one sole document linking him with his son Joseph. That document was generated when Solomon Beals was appointed as Joseph's guardian. Joseph was identified as the orphaned son of George Vandiver. Because Joseph was underage orphan he needed a guardian's permission to marry Martha Beals.

According to 1840 census our Joseph is living with his mother, Elizabeth and his sister, Nancy.

See 1850 Census for William Miller. It is believed that the Elizabeth Miller b 1807 is our Elizabeth Mishler who married George Vandiver in 1824. It appears that after her children left home, Elizabeth went to live with her relatives. William must have been her younger brother or a cousin.
