Anecdote* NOTE: On 18 Oct 1990, Mary Frances Carey, a noted Accomack County certified genealogist, sent a letter and 4 page report to Mrs. Dorothy Myhre of Meza, AZ, regarding her ancestor Levin Savage (1750-1837) of Surry County, NC, who was thought to have been from Accomack County based on the names of some of his children being typical Accomack County Savage family names. Mrs. Carey spent many hours sorting out 3 of the 5 known Savage families on Virginia's Eastern Shore (Accomack & Northampton Counties), that being the Griffin, Rowland and John Savage families of Accomack County. She concluded that the Levin Savage of Surry Co, NC may have been the same as the Severn Savage named as a defendant in a Land Cause first filed in Accomack County on 18 Oct 1803 when Moses Mears brought a suit of ejectment against Robinson Savage and Severn Savage, as tenants in possession of 2 plantations, 2 gardens and 150 acres of land. She noted that in 1804 depositions were to be taken from a group of people who were residents of Surry Co, NC, on behalf of Moses Mears. She concluded that Moses Mears was trying to overthrow the 1785 will of Captain Rowland Savage who left his land to a younger son Robinson Savage instead of his oldest son Levin. The suit was continued many times and finally in May 1811 a jury found for the defendants Robinson and Severn Savage. Then in Oct 1812 Moses Mears brought another suit of ejectment against Molly Savage, the assumed wife of Robinson Savage, but dropped the suit when the court ordered that he provide a security bond to cover the costs of the suit if he was not successful. (NOTE: See the above Land Cause and Court case for more details.) Some 26 years later in May 2016, I was asked to consider the conclusion provided by Mrs. Carey and if I concurred to add Levin Savage of Surry Co, NC, to the MilesFiles as a son of Capt. Rowland Savage. At first I tented to agree with Mrs. Carey when I looked at the original hand written court documents and realized that the capital "S" in Severn looked very similar to the capital "L" used on the same page for the name Lacatto. After borrowing Mrs. Carey's 26 year old file folder on this family and going through all her notes and charts, I decided to check the Processioners Returns for this time period which she did not mention in her report nor were there any copies of these reports in her file. In her defense these Processioners Returns were un-indexed and extremely difficult to use until Gail Walczyk published them with an every name index in 2004. First of all there was no mention of a Moses Mears in these books nor in the Accomack County deed books index nor Accomack County wills & administrations of this time period, so evidently Moses was from Surry Co, NC. It is also evident that his interest in overthrowing the will of Captain Rowland Savage was to gain control of the land and that would occur only if he had married a daughter of Captain Rowland Savage. Robinson Savage was first listed in the Processioners Returns in 1792, proving he lived in and owned land in Accomack County at that time. Then in Feb 1800 lines between Robinson Savage & Severn Savage were viewed, proving they lived in and owned adjacent parcels of land in Accomack County at that time. Then in Dec 1803 and in Mar 1808 lines between Robinson Savage & Severn Savage were viewed again. Then in Jan 1812 lines between Robinson Savage and the heirs of Severn Savage were viewed, proving Severn Savage had died between 1808 and 1812. And finally in Dec 1815 lines between Robinson Savage's heirs and Severn Savage's heirs were viewed, proving Robinson Savage had died. From these facts it is evident that the Severn Savage, a defendant in the suit of ejectment brought by Moses Mears, could not be the same person as the Levin Savage in Surry Co, NC, as Severn Savage was present in Accomack County from 1800 until his death between 1808 and 1812 and Levin Savage of Surry Co, NC, died in 1837 in Tennessee.18
