What evidence do you have for the birthplace and father for Melchoir Seese?I believe that Melchoir was born in America and that he is not the son of Jacob. Moreover, there is no Jacob Seese variation on the 1765 ship Betsy. ======== Re Melchoir, from your post: iii.Sophia LINT, born 29 December 1762 in Lancaster, Lancaster Co., PA; died 17 November 1854 in Scalp Level, Cambria Co., PA; married Melchoir SEESE I 1783 in Lancaster Co., PA; born 16 February 1759 in Hesse-Darmstadt, Germany; died 06 June 1835 in Paint Twp., Somerset Co., PA.
Melchoir arrived in Amer. with his father Jacob Seese on a ship named "Betsy" which arrived in Philadelphia on 19 Sep 1765
