Several trees at RootsWeb have a Jeremiah Salyers 1732-04-06 Woodbridge, Middlesex Co NJ died same place. No information is given about wife or children. He is son of Charles Sallier 1672 same place died same place, and Rebecca Bloomfield 1697 same place died same place. Other children of Charles and Rebecca are:
Joseph 1719-01-06 same place died same place
Johanna 1721-01-22 same place
Samuel 1726-02-23
Zachariah Benjamin 1730-01-24 same place d 1789 Rutherford Co NC married Elizabeth

from genforum:
The Rebecca Bloomfield in the above note is daughter of Timothy Bloomfield. Timothy is son of Ezekiel Bloomfield and Hope FitzRandolph. It also says the Charles Salyer/Sallier who married her was born in 1697 (son of Charles 1672 maybe?)
Another post says Rebecca was born 1686-06-07 and married in 1717. She was Charles' second wife. Charles and Rebecca's children: Jeremiah 1732-04-06, Zachariah Benjamin 1730-01-24, Joseph 1719-01-06, Johanna 1721-01-22, and Samuel 1726-02-23. (All new-style) Charles Sallier's parents are William Sallier of France b.1647 and Sarah Davis b.1651 whose family was from Wales. Her father was Ffoulk Davis born abt.1620 in Wales. Mother Mary Dayton.
A post by the author of a Salyers book says that it is not proven that Rebecca's name was Bloomfield.
A later post says Zachariah (1730) above married Elizabeth Dunn born 1734 NC.

This page says:
Charles Salyer 1697-12-23 Woodbridge NJ
+ Rebecca Bloomfield 1686-06-07

1 Joseph Salyer 1719-01-06 Woodbridge NJ [may be same as Joseph Sailor/Saylor who lived in Mecklenburg Co NC and married Sarah Salyer d/o Zachariah]
2 Johanna Salyer 1724-01-22 Chowan Co NC
3 Samuel Salyer 1726-02-23 Chowan Co NC + Ester Poynter
4 Zachariah Benjamin Salyer 1730-01-24 Woodbridge NJ d 1789 Piedmont, Chowan Co NC + Elizabeth Dunn
5 Jeremiah Salyer 1732-04-06 Woodbridge NJ d 1789 Chowan Co NC + Esther Green [may not be same as Jeremiah who married Jane McCullough. Jeremiah 1732 assumed to be brother of Samuel and Zachariah as all were residents of northeast NC in 1754.]

Note: Chowan Co NC is nowhere near Rowan Co NC.
Note: Zachariah 1730 had a son Isaiah 1752 Rutherford Co NC + Mary Carty 1786; Isaiah had children born in Rowan Co NC, including Jeremiah 1775 d 1848.

This RootsWeb entry says his parents were Isaiah Salyers + (unknown) Sailor. However, it gives Jeremiah's birth and death dates as 1775 and 1840, and has a mostly different set of children for him.
Other RootsWeb entries say Isaiah's son married Elizabeth Rose and died in Russell Co VA.
