Generation

 

6   (?) Seaman

 

Note 1: One might presume that David Seaman (gen 5, below) was the son of Ambrose (b. abt 1787 in Dutchess Co., NY) and Sarah (?) Seaman (b. abt 1791 in Washington Co., NY), early residents of Philadelphia Township, Jefferson County, New York.  However, the 1900 US Census indicates David's mother was born in English speaking Canada, so that probably is not the case.

 

Note 2: Considering their birth locations and the relative proximities of their residences to that of David Seaman (gen 5, below), the following men may be David's brothers:

 

1. Andrew Seaman: Born about 1818 in English-speaking Canada.  Married Esther B. (?) (b. Jefferson Co., NY); children b. Jefferson County, New York.  In 1855 resided in Philadelphia Township, Jefferson County, New York.
