WESTFIELD TOWNSHIP AND BOROUGH.
JONATHAN SEAMANS, a native of Foster, Providence county, Rhode Island, born April 19, 1794, was a son of Israel Seamans, and a grandson of Thomas Sea-mans, who served as a major in the Revolution. Jonathan came to Westfield township, Tioga county, Pennsylvania, in 1817, and settled on land now owned by Hollister Baker, in Westfield borough. In 1848 he removed to the land still owned by his sons, where he spent the remaining years of his life, dying August 15, 1867. He married Rebecca Tuttle, September 28, 1819. She was a daughter of Ayers Tuttle, who fought in the battle of Bunker Hill, and was born in Catherine, Tompkins county, New York, May 16, 1803. She came with her parents to what is now Westfield township, Tioga county, in 1809, where she resided up to her death, September 16, 1873. Thirteen children were the fruits of this union, twelve of whom grew to maturity, viz: Polly R., who married Levi Scott; Eliza P., who married William Morris; Hannah L., who married Aurora Streeter; Israel A., William Orville, Eli B., Chloe L., who married John Potter; Lorania L., who married Frank Cowles; Sheldon Alonzo, Loren B., John M. and Milo P. The family is one of the oldest and best known in the county, and are earnest supporters of the principles and measures of the Republican party. Numerous descendants of Jonathan Seamans are living in Tioga county, and many of them are among the enterprising citizens of the community which he helped to found.
