Bill is looking for the ancestry of Sarah Ann Seeley who md Silas T Baldwin of NYC.
- She married Silas T. Baldwin of NYC on June 1, 1819. In the marriage announcement in the NY paper, she is indicated “of this City”.
- Her children were John Fellows Baldwin (b. Oct. 1819,), Elias Burr Baldwin and James Covel Baldwin (Bill’s GGG-grandfather).
- Her husband, Silas, died around 1826 on board a ship on his way to Venezuela. Bill suspects that she remarried.
Bill thinks Sarah Ann may have been the daughter of Robert Seeley (born in 1774) and Ann. Robert died in 1850 in Newburgh. Robert and Ann were married at Trinity Church in NYC (where Silas’ parents had a connection). He also noted that Robert’s father, Joseph, was from Morris County NJ. The Baldwins are originally connected to Morris County, NJ.
