Seatown is actualy a part of Avoch. Even though Avoch is only a tiny village, Seatown was the name given to the area closest to the sea in the old village where the fishermen lived.
Avoch was a very close knit community and most marriages were within the village, so it wouldn't surprise me if there was some form of distant family connection.
When I was a boy growing up in the village, I remember an old man called Joseph Macintosh, whose nickname (or by-name was Gow). His grand daughter was in my class at school. So I'd imagine he is a descendant of the Joseph you mention.
Incidentally, my father's name was Donald Patience and he was born in 1922 - exactly 100 years after your g-g-grandfather was born.
Sorry I can't be of more specific help. You might want to visit www.avoch.org which is the website of the Avoch Heritage Association. I'm sure they would have some useful info about tracing relatives etc.
All the best,
