The History of Camden County, NJ...
John Shivers appears as the first settler of the name in these parts, and
purchased a tract of land in Delaware township, of Mordecai Howell, in
1692, upon which he erected a dwelling. He died in 1716, and his widow,
Sarah Shivers, was appointed administratrix. In 1720 she purchased an
adjoining tract of land, which extended the estate east of the
mill-pond. The dwelling on the farm now belonging to the estate of
Richard Shivers, deceased, is though to be the spot where John Shivers
erected his first house, and doubtless some of the
material in the present edifice was taken from the old. John Shivers
dying intestate, there is some doubt as to the exact number of his
children, although they are supposed to be as follows: Samuel, who
married Mary Deacon; John, who married Mary Clement; Mary, who married
THomas Bates; Hannah, who married John Matlack; and Josiah, who married
Ann Bates. In 1720 Samuel purchased two hundred acres of land from
Francis Collins, and the following year he conveyed his interest in his
father's estate to his brother John, who remained on the old farm and
whose descendants still occupy portions of the original
tract represented in the farms now occupied by Richard Levis Shivers and
William A. SHivers, the descendants mentioned.


John Shivers was one of the orphans mentioned after the death of Thomas Chevers who remained behind in Virginia at first, but upon achieving the age at which he could select his own guardian he moved first to Maryland, where he lived among the Quakers, and then to New Jersey where he settled and died, the ancestor of many of the family in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
In 1692, John Shivers purchased a tract of land of Mordecai Howell in Waterford township, which was bounded on the south side by Cooper.s creek and partly by a stream branching therefrom whereon Mordecai had erected, or was about to erect, a mill . . . On this tract John Shivers erected a dwelling, and remained until his death. He deceased intestate in 1716, his widow Sarah having been appointed administratrix. Upon his death an inventory of his estate was made by John Cock and William Hunt. Sarah, the widow of John Shivers, being a Quaker, attested to the inventory, which amounted to 149.9.28..
