From Miss Elizabeth M. Seamans, November 11, 1905, when she was visiting Factoryville, Pennsylvania  

"I wonder if you have heard of the Legend, of the ancestry, of our Seamans. I found it among my relatives, who came here in 1817 from Conn.

King James VI, of Scotland, became James 1, of England, the family name being Stuart and were ardent Catholics, but one renowneced the faith and was banished to Virginia, but was allowed to take money, treasures and silver, the king gave him a grant of land in the new country, in part of which Charleston now stands, the man had a wife and three sons, he died and in the course of time the mother again married, and after her death, her husband became guardian of the three boys, he married again and had a family, the mother of which was anxious to get rid of the Stuart boys, the stepfather took them to the sea and bribed a Captain to take them to the Plymouth Rock Country under the name of Seamans, and get them a home and they would be provided for, the oldest boy knew why they had been sent away and when he had became of age he told his brothers of their property in Virginia and he was going to claim it, he went in a vessel that was never heard from and that was supposed to have sunk, two years later the second boy made the attempt, but the vessel was wrecked and only two  were saved to tell the sad tale of disaster, the third boy decided that as both of his brothers had lost their lives in the attempt to claim their property, he would remain in the Plymouth Rock Country and retain the name of Seamans.

Swansea Mass is only a little way from Plymouth Rock, now do you suppose that there is a shadow of truth in this tradition.

Sincerely Elizabeth"

The Hornbine Church.—This church is in the southeast part of Rehoboth, and belongs to the order of the "Six-Principle Baptists." Their creed is continued in Hebrews, the sixth chapter, first and second verses. The name "Hornbine" is a corruption of Hornbeam, and was given to the church because there were many trees of this species in its vicinity.

About thirty members of the Second Baptist Church in Swansea formed themselves into a church in Rehoboth, and ordained Mr. Daniel Martin as their pastor Feb. 8, 1763.1 Elder Martin was the eldest son of Deacon Melatiah Martin, of Swansea, lie was born Sept. 23, 1702, followed the trade of a house carpenter, and died Nov. 18, 1781, aged seventy-nine.  [See below Aaron Seamans married Lillis Martin, daughter of Daniel]

He had nine children. In 1770 he published a discourse against particular election and efficacious grace in conversion, to which the Rev. Isaac Backus published an answer the following year. Soon after the settlement of Elder Martin over this church, Elder Nathan Pierce was ordained us his colleague, and continued to preach to this people for forty years.

Some years before the death of Elder Pierce, Elder Thomas Seamans was ordained as his colleague. Mr. Seamans was a farmer by occupation, and possesed great physical vigor. He preached a sermon in this church after he was one hundred years of age, and died in 1826, at the advanced age of one hundred and four years, five months, and fifteen days, probably the oldest person that ever died in Rehoboth. (See obituary of his brother Noah Seamans in Jackson, Michigan below)   He spent the last few years of his life with his son, Mr. Comfort Seamans, who owned a farm about a mile north of the church.

His remains lie buried in a little plot on the farm enclosed by a strong wall, but overgrown with shrubs. An elm and two cedars of considerable size stand within the plot. The rude stones that mark the grave are without inscription. Beside him are buried his son and several members of his family. Elder Seamans' grandson, Josiah Simmons, was an honored deacon in this church for many years. During Elder Seamans' pastorate he was assisted by several colleagues. Elder Benjamin Mason, of Swansea, preached to this church for a time.

Notes for CELIA SEAMANS:
Celia (Seamans) Fish
(wife of David C. Fish)
May 13, 1887 

Mrs. Celia Fish

Mrs. Fish, whose death occurred at the residence of her son-in-law, A.J. Quick, of Leroy, on Friday, the 13th of May, 1887, had reached the advanced age of 83 years, and retained to a remarkable degree her vigor of mind and body up to a short period before her demise. She, with her husband, was one of the early pioneers of Leroy Township, which was named after her son, Leroy, the first male child born in the township. She was a woman of rare originality of thought, earnest conviction, strong practical judgement and fine social qualities, a combination which fitted her for the part she has borne in developing our community from the pioneer condition of half a century ago.

The deceased leaves nine children, six of whom were at the funeral; three sons, William, Leroy, and Washington, and three daughters, Mrs. Copeland, wife of the Rev. Wm. Copeland, of the M.E. church, Mrs. A.J. Quick, and Mrs. Cordelia Johnson.

Mrs. Fish possessed a wide acquaintance in this section of the state by whom her memory will be affectionately cherished. We here present the concluding portion of the funeral discourse by Rev. James Berry: "We halt to-day for a few moments in the journey of life to say the last farewell over one of our number. The skeleton foot of death, which enters the loftiest as well as the humblest stations of life, has invaded our circle. But a week ago a commanding presence moved in our midst, whom we shall see no more, a cheerful companion who will no more make glad our hearts by her happy life and encouraging words, a kind neighbor who will no more be ready with willing hands to minister to the wants of those about her, a loving mother whose labor of love for her children is ended, a witness to the power of Jesus Christ to save on earth has gone to join that innumerable company of the redeemed on the other shore.

Celia Seamans was born February 2, 1804, in the state of Rhode Island. She moved with her parents to Connecticut, then to Vermont, and then to New York. In 1822 she was married to Mr. David Fish, with whom she shared the joys and sorrows, successes and privations incident to life in a new country, until four years ago, when he was taken from her side.

In 1832 with her family she came to Michigan. She lived in Washtenaw County for two years, and then moved to Leroy in 1834. This was then a wilderness, but she has been spared to see the forest give place to the cultivated fields, the log houses to beautiful dwellings, the wilderness to blossom as the rose. For over fifty years she has lived here and was well known to all. Said one of her neighbors, "I don't think Aunt Celia had an enemy in the world.

Everybody was glad to see her cheerful face and no one was more welcome to the social circle, or more sadly missed if she was absent."

Long has she been spared, but that summons to which every ear shall hearken and all mortality obey, reached her at last, and without a murmur or a fear she received it, and, folding her hands, she quietly fell asleep as an infant in its mother's arms.

Eternity beckoned to one whose labors here were ended, and she sank down to rest with resignation to the decrees as they were written.

Notes for SILAS AMASA SEAMANS:
Per Mabel Eloise Seamans...
"Great Aunt Nancy was funny.  When Zakock complained (he always did) that the busciuts were only fit for hots to eat, she fed them to the hogs and then how he swore!  She was always calm and easy."

Uncle Silas had ESP.  He told things about to happen.  Once he told where to find a pair of spectacles - so many feet to a certain tree, then a ways away - they were found under a chip of wood.

Silas' children were John, Edgar, Annette, and Lula.  All were good singers.  Ed was in an opera.  He sang at Lake Harriet.  Dad planned to go to hear him.  I begged to go too.  He got there too late.  Didn't say a word of disappointment.

Sarah Ann Spaulding had a daughter, Minnie, who lived in Zadock's house at one time.

Silas' first son, John Seamans, had a daughter, Faith Seamans Wheelock who lived in Vallejo (as of 1969).
