Additional questions - Etchison, Deaver, Call

I am searching for links to the families of Etchison and Deaver. In 1818, Rowan County Court minutes show a Sally Deever in a bastardy case involving the reputed father, William Etchison. Does anyone have any idea who this man is - his parents, etc? She married Stephen Allen the next year.

Polly Deaver and Charity Deaver married brothers Eli and Jesse Etchison, respectively in the early 1800s in Rowan County. I believe Charity and Polly were sisters, either sisters of Joshua and Samuel Deaver (of Samuel and Elizabeth Farmer Deaver) or a sister to the Samuel Deaver who married Cloha Jarvis in 1820. I have been tracking all the Deavers in Rowan County for some time. I know for a fact that the other Samuel Deaver who married Cloha Jarvis was NOT a son of Samuel and Elizabeth Farmer Deaver who married there in 1787. I believe he was more likely the son of William Deaver who was in Rowan County in 1810 census. I'm trying to determine which family group Polly and Charity belong to. A Samuel Deaver was bondsman on their marriage license for both. I also would like to show that William Deaver and Samuel Deaver (who married Elizabeth Farmer) were brothers.

Also, I would like information about Joseph Call who married Emily Deaver in 1809 in Rowan County. Joseph turned out to be the bondsman for Richard Deaver and Henrietta Ring who married there in 1810. I am leaning towards the idea that Emily and Richard were brothers and sisters. But to which family group I am not certain.

If anyone has any information that could help, I'd love to hear from you. Any Etchison information would be greatly appreciated since these two families intermarried quite a bit during this time - it might help me determine how they first linked together.

Thanks, Jennifer
