Trezise/Seymour Family of Cornwall, NJ, then PA

I am researching my Seymour/Trezise branch of the Family who came from Cornwall, England and lived in New Jersey before settling in Jermyn, Lackawanna County, PA. My Great Great Grandparents were William James Seymour and Elizabeth Jane Trezise. William James Seymour was born cir. August 1855 in I think Gwennap, Cornwall and Elizabeth was born cir, February 1856 died cir. 1907 in Jermyn, PA. Records show they were married in June 1873 at Redruth she was listed as living in Cardinham before their marriage. They left shortly after their marriage for the US and were listed in the Roxbury, NJ. 1880 census. I think Elizabeth's parents were Richard Trezise and Elizabeth Trewartha but am not sure. She may also have been related to John Trezise (1870 - 1939) and William (1869 - 1942) wife Alice, who are buried in Jermyn, PA. I would like to search both lines farther back. I think William James Seymour's parents were Johanna and James and do have some siblings but would have to dig through papers to find them. If you have or come across any information on this family or this Seymour Trezise line, please email me at email@example.com. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Sincerely, Jan Z.
