I am the GGG Granddaughter of John “Jackson Silver through his son Greenberry. My research and application to the DAR was the first application approved through John as a son of George Silver Jr. I have been to Kona, Mitchell Co NC and have taken many photos of the Graves of George Silver Jr and relatives and his homeplace. Based on my autosomal DNA results, the Eastern European Jewish heritage came from the Silver line. My grandmother was a Silver from Talking Rock, Pickens Co Ga. Many members of the Wilson, Allen, Arrowood, families of Yancey NC married into our family.
My ggg grandfather John Silver,Sr.(abt. 1784-1882) (DAR Approved) son of George Silver Jr.,who was the son of Hanss George Wendel Silber Silver and Elizabeth Margaretha Schmieden.
