72 William Alverson.21,130  b. about 1702. d. after 1771.

The following abstracts portions of an unpublished (as of 1997) manuscript, "The Alverson Ancestry of Sarah Bailey Ray" by Dean Froehlich, Rochester, NY:

The first record of William Alverson was in Warwick, RI where he received a distribution from his father, Japhet's estate in 1724 from his mother Deliverance [Warwick, RI, Record of Wills, 1703-45, #1:157-9]. He was probably in his early twenties at that time. The identity of his first wife and the mother of his children is not know. He was first recorded as a resident of Smithfield, RI in 1738 when he bought land there and was admitted as a freeman [John R. Bartlett, Records of the colony of Rhode Island, Vol. IV: 541, Vol. VI: 203 (1759)]. His occupation noted on several deeds was as a weaver and as a husbandman [Providence, RI Deeds, Vol. 10A: 175, 335, Vol. 10B: 340 and Smithfield Deeds, Vol. 4: 305]. In 1756, when his youngest child was seven years old, he remarried to Jerusha Garnzey in Providence [James Arnold, Vital Records if Rhode Island, Vol. 2: 4]. Within five or six years, he moved from Rhode Island to the town of Sackville in Nova Scotia with his sons, David, Japhet and Jeremiah. Between 1763 and 1778, fourteen grandchildren were recorded as born to the sons of William in Sackville [Esther C. Wright, Planters and Pioneers, Nova Scotia, 1749-1775, Lancelot Press, p. 38]. The occupations followed were weaving for William, shoemaking for David, lumbering for Japhet, and all were land speculators [Sackville Census Reports, 1770 and 1771 and Sackville Township Record Book of Earmarks]. The 1771 census for Sackville shows that 1,000 acres of land had been granted to William and 500 acres each to David and Japhet [Nova Scotia Census Returns, RG 1. Vol. 433:30]. The last record of an Alverson in Sackville was in 1792 when David was called to serve on a jury. [Westmorland County, NB, Records of Proceedings of the Court of Common Pleas: 1785-1809]. Son Japhet left Sackville about 1778-9 for Poughkeepsie, NY; son Jeremiah died in Walton, NY and David is thought to have died in Johnston, RI [Barton, Hettie C. and Housh, Hattie W. B., Alverson-Albertson Genealogy, ms in New England Historical and Genealogical Society, Boston, MA]. None apparently remained in Sackville.131

There is no known documentary evidence naming the spouse of William, other than unverifiable submissions to the Mormon Church.
