- http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~katy/walters/b16873.html#P16873 File found on WorldConnect has additional information about the Thomas Walters that married Elizabeth Sively/Sievely. Some of the information about this couple has come from an early DAR file that had several errors and seems to be the "source" for the information about the wife of Thomas Walters Jr of Pittsylvania and certainly is an example of mistaken identity. The papers give his birth date as 1757, in England. He's said to have died in 1837 in Huntsville, Madison Co AL. His wife's name is given as "Mary E. Sibley" [note that this name is identical to the supposed wife of Thomas Walters Jr of Pittsylvania Co VA] This lineage has since been discredited by the DAR and any applicants must furnish new proof. The following is known.a. There is no additional proof of his birth date or placeb. He died in Madison Co AL but his will was dated July 10, 1826, filed for probate on Sept 15, 1826, not 1837. It did name his wife as Elizabeth and named sons Thomas, John, and Daniel. Unnamed were another son William and a daughter Sarah. A son George had died as a small child.c. Researchers of the Sibley family have no record of any Mary E., Mary Elizabeth, or Elizabeth that ever married a Thomas Walters.d. Another researcher has found a Military Pay Record for a Thomas Walters who enlisted in 1775 at age 18, serving in the Virginia Infantry. He was living in Shenandoah County. e. Thomas Walters of Shenandoah married Elizabeth Sievely, daughter of a German immigrant who leased land from Lord Fairfax [in Shenandoah] as early as 1761. This was Joseph Sievely whose wife was Catherine, sometimes seen as Catherine Rush - there's no proof of her surname. This Thomas Walters from Shenandoah had a brother John who married Elizabeth Sivley's sister Sarah. These two couples as well as two of the Sivley brothers left Virginia for Jefferson Co TN about 1786-1788. About 1820, Thomas & Elizabeth moved to Madison Co AL where he died. Their surviving children all moved to Fulton Co Illinois.
