Note*Many researchers, including me until now, have recorded a lineage Hezekiah (b. ca. 1711) > Jacomiah Sr. (d. ca. 1808) > Stephen (b. ca. 1743). This leaves only 32 years to span 3 generations. Another researcher pointed out to me that there must be an offset of a generation. It is documented that Jacomiah Sr. had a son named Stephen (The Seamans in America, p. 62), but it is highly unlikely that it is Stephen b. ca. 1743. Nothing is known about the son Stephen born to Jacomiah Sr. and Margaret Bodee. We do know that Stephen b. ca. 1743 in New York, died 24 July 1820 in Cumberland County, Nova Scotia, and buried in St. John's Methodist Church Cemetery in Wallace, Cumberland County, Nova Scotia, was married to Hannah Smith. Pending further research, I have placed Stephen Sr. as a sibling of Jacomiah Sr., rather than his son.

Susannah Seaman1

F, b. circa 1770
Last Edited27 Oct 2012
Note*Susanah Seaman was born in New England about 1770, and probably came to the Saint John River with the Loyalist refugees in 1783. Oliver, son of Nicholas and Sarah (Oliver) Rideout was born at Maugerville about 1767. Church records show that he married, at Maugerville, Nov. 17, 1794, Susannah Seaman. Deeds suggest that Oliver and Susannah were living in Maugerville in 1821, and in Wakefield, Carleton County by 1826. It is therefore likely they arrived some time between those dates, at which time Oliver would have been at least 54 years of age. Deeds also show that both Oliver and Susannah Rideout were living in 1842, and that Oliver had died before 1846. It is thought that Susannah probably predeceased him, and that he may have married a second time. Does anyone know their death dates, and where they were buried? They apparently lived at Somerville, somewhere in the neighbourhood of were the Peoples Church now stands (about a half mile below the covered bridge). Was Lucretia Rideout, age 60, shown in the 1851 Census in the Parish of Wakefield, Oliver's widow by a second marriage? Oliver and Susannah (Seaman) Rideout had 13 children, probably all born at Maugerville. But it appears they all came with their parents to Carleton County, at which time the eldest was probably about 27 to 30 years of age. Dear Don, Here is what I have on Prudence Rideout's family. OLIVER RIDEOUT, s/o Nicholas Rideout & Sarah (Oliver) (1)(2) b. c1767(1), Maugerville, Sunbury Co., N.B. d aft 1842, Carleton County, N.B. m. 17 Nov 1794, Maugerville, Sunbury Co., N.B. (3) SUSANNAH SEAMAN, d/o (3) b. c1770, d. Oliver and Susannah Rideout were living in Maugerville in 1821, but probably removed to Carleton Co., N.B., shortly thereafter (2). They at one time owned lots 33 and 34 at Somerville, in the Pariah of Wakefield, opposite the Town of Hartland. Did Oliver marry a second time? In 1844, Oliver and Lucretia Rideout deeded land in Carleton Co. to Isaac Rideout. Was this the same Oliver? And the 1851 census for the Parish of Wakefield shows Lucretia Rideout, widow, 60, apparently living by herself. Who was she?
