Did Catlyne Auten marry the Roelof Sebring who was son of Volkert Sebring and Maryjte Auten? If so, I show his brother, Thomas married Sarah Auten and his sister, Marya married Thomas Auten. I have some slight Sebring connections through Van Tuyl, Auten, and Laurimore (Laurimore in Darke County Ohio... others in New York or New Jersey)...... I've recently run into someone working on Nevius..... will point them in your direction if i run into them again..... my 5g-grandfather, Isaac Van Tuyl served under this Capt John Sebring in the Revolutionary War..... (you've probably seen this before, it's either from one of the published New York histories or from the published Sebring family history)....

JAN/JOHN SEBRING born 27 Oct 1731; died 12 Sep 1804 Ovid Seneca Co. NY; married 21 Feb 1754 NELLIE VAN VOORHEES born 19 Feb 1732; died 8 Dec 1801; daughter of Jan Van Voorhees and Nellie Nevius. John inherited 60 acres of land in Somerset Co. NJ from his father. John was a Subaltern in the
Somerset Co. militia when his brother Roelof resigned his commission as Captain to enter the legislature. John served for the duration of the Revolutionary War as Captain of the 1st Battalion. Serving under him were his two brothers, Cornelius and Thomas, and his son Folkert. Sometime after his father's death, he removed to Seneca County NY, leading a group including his son, Folkert, and other close relatives. They traveled the distance with ox teams, through the wilderness to the Lakes Country, a trip taking over three weeks. There they faced all the hardships of clearing land, planting crops and helping to set up a new community. When they had a toothache, they would pull their own teeth; they set their own broken bones; and if an appendix burst, they would die.
