I also appoint my Son in Law Benjamin Seawell and my grandsons Benjamin Seawell and Joseph Seawell my executors of this my last Will and Testament. In Witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand and affixed my seal this nineteenth day of March in the year of our Lord one Thousand seven hundred and sixty nine.Signed by Sarah Hicks [by her mark] Signed, Sealed and published and delivered by the said Sarah Hicks to be her last will and Testament in whose presence and at whose request the following were witnesses Charles Williamson, Thomas Sisson, and Judith Williamson. I think your Thomas would have been much younger than even Lucy Seawell who was born about 1726, the oldest of the children of George and Sarah.I descend from the oldest son James(1728-1793), who married Judith Collier. But descendants of George (1730-1793)intermarried with kin in the Cheraw area of SC, so I've done a lot on the older George and Sarah.In fact, the granddaughter Sarah married William Pegues.I went into the DAR on his brother Claudius, Jr.
