Secondary sources show the eldest son as Sovisca, Souvisca, Souvria, Sevaura.  The clearest reading of his name is in the 1910 census, where he is "Sovisca S."  For second son, Erasmus, secondary sources give middle name "Dervin," but he was almost certainly named for renowned 19th-century philosopher/poet/naturalist, Erasmus DARWIN (1731-1802), evolutionist and grandfather of Charles DARWIN (1809-1882).
