This is what I know for sure:
My line is Micajah Seamans b 1786 in somewhere in VA, who married in Grainger Co,TN 1808, traveled on down to White Co,TN by 1809 where he raised his family of ten children. My gg grandfather, Jonathan b 1816 was his 4th child. He, too raised his family in White & Van Buren Co, TN. After the war, Jonathan b 1816 moved to Limestone Co.,AL where he is buried. My great grandfather came to TX in 1872, where most of our family have remained.
I have never been able to go further back than Micajah.
Micajah & Jonathan [b 1792/95 and taken to be a brother] were together in Grainger Co, TN, married half sisters, moved together to White Co, TN, then Jonathan vanished. I was comnvinced a few months ago I had found him, but now am not so sure after reading more of the documents I photo copied from Van Buren Co records.
If you can shed light on the VA Seamans, please email me directly at
Thank you, Berna S Sprinkles
