JONAH AND JANE (JEAN?) D. (MOSS) SEAMAN RESEARCH RECORD

BIRTH/BAPTISM/PARENTS/CHILDREN RECORDS

Baptized 3 Aug 1720.  This date may be wrong.  Father baptized 1722 according to note.  Need to check this out.

DEATH/OBITUARY/CEMETERY RECORDS

MARRIAGE/DIVORCE RECORDS

FAMILY BIBLE/RELIGION AFFILIATIONS RECORDS

EMPLOYMENT/MILITARY/ORGANIZATIONS RECORDS

WILL/ESTATE/DEEDS/COURT RECORDS

Will 10 Feb 1780 (#332, p. 88)  Probated 21 Oct 1783.  Stipulated 7 daughters, listed 8.  Given the birthdates and the order in which the children are listed, this researcher suspects (and listed accordingly above) that Cary and Elizabeth are one in the same - Cary Elizabeth.  Listed children do not agree with list above - trying to resolve issues.  Children listed in will are:  Corey (Cary), Elizabeth, Hannah, Catherine, Phebe, Sarah, Martha, Lydia, John, Jonathan, Jacomick, Jeremiah, Jonah and Charles.  Other sources list children above and it is possible that younger sons are not in the will because they had moved away.  Also, I haven't found a "Jacomick" in any other reference.  Perhaps that is a first or middle name for one of the other sons - Charles, Peter or William.  Still searching!

The Deed Book of Berkley County, VA (now WV) includes the following notes - with the issues around the several Jonathans, Jonahs, Jonases, etc., these are recorded here for reference and this researcher has no indication of which ones belong to which of the group.  More creativity in naming children would have made this much easier!
