  • Notes 
    • John Livergood, "was a native of North Carolina where he was born probably as early as 1754. His ancestors belonged to the Moravians, a religious body that settled in Carolina at a very early date. In 1800 he, together with his wife and family of six children, left their native state and travelled north to Virginia where they met with the 'Fordney Family' who were making preparations for moving to Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Joining themselves with this company Mr. Livergood and family continued their journey to Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, where they found one of the most beautiful counties ever presented to their view and in which they greatly desired to settle but they, as many others, found that they had not the required capital to procure one of those beautiful Lancastrian homes, hence the desire to push onward their journey to some place where homes could be procured for a less sum of money. So in spring of 1802 a company left Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, and meeting others from Cumberland County of the same state, moved to Canada. Among this company were the Livergoods, Sararas, Shupes, Fordneys and other families. After their (Mrs J. Livergood was Sallie Sararas, sister to Nicolaus Sararas. This information was received from the late David Sararas) arrival in this country they all settled in Waterloo County, along the banks of the Grand River ... in the vicinity of Freeport. Mr. Livergood settled on the east bank of the Grand River, north of the 'Toll Bridge'. Here he resided with his family until his death which took place about the year 1819. His family consisted of six children". \b
