Seamans Family Genealogy Forum
Further research has led me to question whether the James Seamans born in 1727 ever even moved to Providence County, Rhode Island. I now question the "general" statements that Thomas and Mary (Pierce) Seamans and their family moved to Scituate. It appears that most of their children married in either Swansea or Rehoboth, both in Bristol County, Massachusetts. Many of them continued to live in that area, rather than in Scituate. I have only found evidence that one son of Thomas and Mary, Noah, resided in Scituate for a time. There is some indication that Noah's brother Aaron MIGHT have resided there for a time as well. I have found no other evidence that any of the other children of Thomas and Mary (including the James born in 1727) EVER moved to Scituate. Does anybody have evidence to the contrary??
If the James Seamans born in 1727 never lived in Scituate, then he certainly could not have been the James of the 1790 census for Scituate, thus strengthening the theory I have presented in a recent posting concerning that James on this Genforum.
