A shot in the Dark

I have an ancestor named Eve DeShiro or DeShired...or maybe something else...
She was born abt 1759 and died 30 Mar 1838 in Ontario, Canada. She came from the Kingston, NY area or possibly the western part of New Jersey. She married James Nevills and in 1787 they moved to Canada. I have seen her name as BeSherry, Besherrow. The name as spelled on her husband's will is DeSharrow. Considering that Eve's oldest child was born in 1780 and that James was known to be residing in New Jersey by 1775 it is a reasonable assumption that Eve and James met there. She would have been about 16 in 1775. Her children were born between the years 1780 and 1798. James' will identifies Eve's unmarried sister as Catharine DeBarrow. Her name was written as Anne Eve in the Nevills family Bible...

Does this ring any bells with anyone?
If so, please email me
