Henry SEAMAN was born in Essex Co.,New Jersey in 1787

Henry SEAMAN married Isabel HANSELL in 1807. They probably lived in Essex Co., N.J. Their son Henry was born in 1817. He married Hannah SANDERSON in 1835. We would like to find any information on where this SEAMAN family originated and whether they are related to other Seaman families in the New York/New Jersey area during colonial times. I searched the descendants of Capt. John Seaman and found no Henry with son Henry. We believe this family was English, and Episcopalian; many of our Seamans lived in the Orange, New Jersey area and worked in the manufacture of hats and shoes during the late 1800's.

Emma May, b. ca. 1860, Ohio, adopted by Alvan & Sarah CLOUD

Alvan and Sarah lived in Clinton Co., Ohio at the time; Alvan had at least one son from his first marriage to Lydia Ann Dean; he and Sarah CHURCH married in 1856, and were still childless in the 1860 census. Although, there were two children listed in their household: Mary SIMMINS(?hard to read),age 13, and Micheal(same last name),age 5. Could these names be clues? The census enumerator had some legibility problems, but there seemed to be other Simmins and Simmons names in the same area, with young children...

CROOKS family of Brooke Co., W. Va.

My gg-grandmother, Mary Jane CROOKS, (husband was John J. FITHEN) was born in Brooke Co., West Virginia,(at that time it was still Virginia) in 1832. Her father's name was Valentine Crooks; her mother is unknown. Her siblings were Rachel and Isaac. Valentine probably had a second wife, name unknown. If anyone has any more details, I would appreciate knowing the origin of this family. Thank you!

Wife of Archie C. Brink, Kentucky, Fayette Co., circa 1800-1845

Looking for the name and any info for Archibald BRINK's first wife, who was the mother of Demaris, Archie and Sarah. We know his second wife's name was Judith Townsend, but our grandmother's name is still unknown. She must have died around 1844 in Fayette Co., Kentucky.

John Samuel GRIFFITH, b 1831 ; KY and MO

John Samuel Griffith, b. Kentucky in 1831; married Demaris BRINK 1852 in Fayette Co., Kentucky. Moved to northwest Missouri (Kearney, Clay Co.) Looking for his parents' names and any other background. Thanks!

26 Jan 2010 - Still looking for the names of John Samuel GRIFFITH's parents; his father's name may have been Jefferson, but I cannot be certain because there was more than one John Griffith born in Kentucky in 1831 who later settled in northwest Missouri.
