I am seeking the families of William Seaman who received a marriage license from New York State to marry Philena Smith 29 Oct 1764.I have a piece of paper which had been in the possession of a deceased aunt which gives the birth date of William as 17 Aug 1741 and that of Philena as 1 Oct 1746.It then lists the following children:
William Seaman b. 3 Nov 1765 Amy Seaman b. 21 Jan 1767 Obadiah Seaman b. 24 May 1772 Sarah Seaman b. 3 Sep 1774 Elizabeth Seaman b. 15 Dec 1779
I am descended from Amy Seaman who married first Caleb Cowpland, the son of Joshua Cowpland and Ann Evans who married 24 Oct 1765, probably Chester or Montgomery County, Pennsylvania.After Caleb Cowpland died, Amy Seaman Cowpland married 23 Nov 1806 in Philadelphia as his second wife Jacob Zebley born 31 Mar 1763 Philadelphia, son of Jacob Zebley and Esther Madeira who married 23 Dec 1761 Germantown, PA
Jacob and Amy Seaman Cowpland Zebley had the following children: Amy Powell Zebley b. 16 Aug 1807 Jacob Zebley b. 23 Nov 1808; d. 24 Nov 1808 Jacob Seaman Zebley b. 2 Aug 1813 Philadelphia
Amy Powell Zebley married circa 1827 Cadwalader Evans Cowpland, son of David Chew Cowpland and Anna Neale who married 23 Jul 1796 Philadelphia.David Chew Cowpland was the younger brother of Caleb Cowpland, Amy Seaman's first husband.
I'm hoping by sharing this information, someone will be able to help me in return.In our family we have used the Zebley, Cowpland,and Madeira spellings but know other branches have opted for Sibley, Copeland, and Madera.
