Seeking female surnames in honor of Women History month, March 2016.
Seaver Deliverance 1767 birth Feb 7
I’m behind in my daily posts. It takes time healing from a brain concussion. I can slowly return to the internet for research. I decided to spend fifteen minutes a day looking for my female surnames. I save the records found for later research. I don’t know if they are related or not. They are in the same location, time and possible new surname relatives of other family branches. I can’t call it a one name study because I have several surnames.
Case in point; while researching my Beers ancestors in the Watertown/Newton Massachusetts area I came across a Seaver surname. That is a surname of another of my female ancestors from a different branch of my family. [When I first started my research, eons ago, I didn’t save records of surnames, just the ones that we linked to mine. I found out in future research that many times 19th century ancestor in Maine can be traced back to the 17th century ancestors’ location I never thought to look for them.]
Now I save any “known surname,” record I come across to my possible relatives folder.
Today’s find was, Deliverance Seaver daughter of Shubael and Deliverance _____ Seaver, born 7 Feb 1767. Also, listed is a daughter Mary born 8 Nov 1764. Both born Newton, Massachusetts.
I found this entry while browsing a hint for Bertia Beers Ward, in Massachusetts, Town and Vital Records, 1620-1988, Newton, Birth, Marriages and Death filmstrip 100 of 4059 Ancestry.com Operations 2011 (accessed 23 mar 2016.)
I wander if she is related to Randy Seaver of Genea-Musing fame?
