I want to thank you so much for
placing these records on line. My paternal
grandmother's ancestors are mentioned in Walter
Harriman's History of Warner NH on page 169, where
he wrote that Andrew Seavey, a son of Amos Seavey of
Rye, and Andrew's sons Burns, Marden and James were
early settlers. Marden's wife was Mary Flanders but
I have not been able to find out anything about
Today I looked at the LDS family
research website and found an entry for an Andrew
Seavey marrying a Mary Lemon 12/25/1753 in Pelham,
NH and listing five children, including sons Burns
and Marden (no James mentioned). I Googled up your
site and was able to find Andrew and Mary's marriage
record under the Congregational Church records but
so far I have found nothing else on it about them.
Perhaps they were not in Pelham very long.
The Andrew Seavey I am trying to
trace settled in Warner around the time of the
American Revolution. If this is the same Andrew,
perhaps there were older children who remained in
Pelham and these sons were born in Warner. According
to Harriman Marden was in Warner company in the War
of 1812. My ancestor, Henry Marden Seavey was born
in 1837 and a death record is on line for a daughter
who was born in 1841. I don't have any death
information for Marden yet.
If there is anyone else
researching Andrew Seavey please share my contact
information. The Harriman history was republished in
1975 for the Bicentennial and I think is available
on line at Warner's website.

Thanks for jumping
through hoops for me, I appreciate it. I
hope I'm not messing up your schedule too
Dear Mr. Hayes,
I have been checking out your web site and
am quite interested in "Aunt Molly's
scrapbook." As the librarian for the
Weymouth Historical Society, I have many
documents that I would like to scan so the
public can access them. Would you be able to
tell me what program you used to clean up
the newspaper articles? Any help would be
greatly appreciated as we are all volunteers
and are limited in our training.
I'm a caregiver working for an agency. One of my
clients is a Veteran with lifelong ties to Pelham.
If he could overcome his shyness, I'd take him to
Senior Center. Now we play checkers and cards at his
house, Occasional trips to bowling alley fit into
This keeps his mind sharp, but he seems to be a
history buff. We have 3 weekday possibilities to
schedule an appointment to spend an hour in town
enjoying historical sites or pictures.
I went to college in Salt Lake
City, Utah to study mineralogy in the mid sixties
and while I was there I took advantage of the Morman
genealogy library to look up documents about the
Hydes and the Sherburnes. I then gave the
information to my mother who then saved it along
with other information she had accumulated. I now
have those loose-leaf notebook in my possession (4).
They contain pictures and collections of notes and
clippings. If this would be something the historical
society would be interested in I would be happy to
let you review them and copy whatever you wish. My
sister and I have no children and she just has a
passing interest in genealogy. Eventually, I would
like to find things like this a "good home" rather
than have them discarded. I also have a framed
photograph of the family farm which consists of two
pictures which have been overlapped and fastened
together. The same photograph is illustrated in the
I have used the Pelham Historical
Society's web site for several years now and it is
TERRIFIC!! You and Ms. Genoter have done a wonderful
job! Awhile ago, Mom had showed me the "Reflections"
book you had developed for the Town's anniversary
and later I ordered one for myself. It's funny but
until she showed it to me I had never seen any
pictures of my Great Grandfathers and Grandmothers!!
It appears that my Great Grandfather Hyde was quite
an individual! By the way, I have attached a pdf
file about my grandfather Burton Sherburne which I
found on the web. At the time he worked for the New
Jersey state farm bureau
Thanks again ! I hope to be able
to meet you in person in the near future.
