My parents were both from Virginia.Mom from Alexandria and Dad from the Fairfax area.
The fact that your family was/is still in Virginia in the same areas where my Dad grew up makes me think we have to be looking for the same Sebastian family.
I did wonder about the Adamson links.I think a lot of older families did this.In my Kidwell research, Kidwells were always marrying their cousins.It makes it difficult to untangle sometimes.
I tried the Mormon site (www.familysearch.org) and looked under Lyddane, thinking I might find Charles Lyddane and through him find Maude Sebastian.Didn't find him, but found a Margaret Lyddane born Sept. 19, 1861 in Maryland and died Aug. 27, 1884 in Wash,DC.It shows her married to Roseo Ignacious Varnell.Could this be a cousin?This persons parents were Thomas & Mary Ann Lyddane.
