Randy Seaver's Ancestry and Family History

Updated May 19, 2005

About Our Family Research


My ancestry is about 50% colonial New England (including Mayflower passengers, Massachusetts Bay Governors, and several of royal descent), with liberal portions of English, German and Dutch lines:

ANCESTRY FILES
----------------------

The files listed below include six of my SEAVER/RICHMOND ancestry, broken up so as to reduce the size of any one file. The line back to Benjamin Seaver is:

* Fred Walton Seaver (1876-1942) m. 1900 Alma Bessie Richmond (1882-1962). There is an ancestry of Alma Bessie Richmond below.

* Frank Walton Seaver (1852-1920) m. 1874 Hattie Hildreth (1857-1922). There is an ancestry of Hattie Hildreth below.

* Isaac Seaver (1823-1901) m. 1851 Lucretia Smith (1827-1884). There is an ancestry for Lucretia Smith below.

* Benjamin Seaver (1791-1825) m. 1816 Abigail Gates (1797-1867). There are separate ancestries for Benjamin Seaver and Abigail Gates below.

There are also two files of my CARRINGER/AUBLE ancestry.

In addition, there are also files for the Descendants of Benjamin Seaver of MA, Peter Dill of MA, James Vaux of England/NY, Martin Carringer of PA and Andreas Able of NJ.

I have added files for my wife's LELAND (with a significant Norwegian ancestry) and SCHAFFNER ancestry, plus the Descendants of Jeremiah McKnew who settled in Prince Georges County MD in the late 1600's.

Biographical data on the immigrants, Robert and Elizabeth (Ballard) Seaver, is provided in one file, and there are four files with descendants of this couple. The files are 8 generation descendants of their four sons, Shubael, Joshua, Caleb and Nathaniel Seaver. Lastly, there is a file with unattached New England Seaver families who are probably descended from Robert Seaver.

I welcome any comments, suggestions and corrections to this data. It is offered here in the spirit of sharing data and discovering cousins. Any errors are mine alone, and I'm sure there are some! The database is still a work in progress.
