In my John William Seamsters earliest Halifax Co VA records the name was spelled FLEMISTER. I have seen on this site that the origin of the Flemisters was Essex Co VA.That is also where my John Seamster came from. He was born in 1732.All the Seamsters in the US come from John William Seamster and Sallie Weaver who came to Halifax Co VA from Essex Co.My theory is that all the Seamsters and Flemisters in the US are from the same James FLEMISTER. Has anyone else come accross this? John Williams children are James Ephriam, Isobel, Catherine, John William and Elizabeth.
