Update to Query #0105-2 // Re: Diana Seeley

Diana is mentioned as an heir/next-of-kin immediately after Jonathan Youmans in the will and testament of Jeremiah Youmans, late of the aforesaid County of Bergen, NJ, deceased (dated 1850). Suzanne had a deed dated 5-10-1824 for John Seeley to Dianna Youmans (Monmouth County, Middletown Twp., NJ) witnessed by John Patterson and an Elizabeth Seeley. (Sealy) The deed stated that John Seeley reserves his right of life to the land and that Diana would not have possession until after his death. She did not know if this Diana Youmans is the same Diana Seeley.

In the SGS database we have John Seely b. 1751, d. 1825 Monmouth Co. NJ and md 1797 Hannah Diana Yeomans. She is listed as a daughter of Jonathan and Abigail Youmans by Ken McCrea (Ken@GermanNames.com). I don’t know her relationship to Jeremiah Youmans. Contact me if you have any more information on Diana/Hannah Diana Seeley.

Update to Query #0105-2 // Re: Diana Seeley, 2nd Update

This query was about the identity of Hannah Diana Youmans Seely (b. 1777 NJ), wife of John Seely b. 1751, d. 1825 Monmouth Co. NJ. mentioned as an heir in the will of Jeremiah Youmans of Bergen Co. NJ. Jessica Seely Howard (charles@cut.net) sent us a link to burials in the Old Truax Burying Grounds in Keansburg, Middletown, Monmouth, NJ: http://distantcousin.com/cemetery/nj/monmouth/misc/truax.html Burials include Hannah Diana, husband John Seeley and some of their children.

I found information on the Yeomans/Youmans family online, including references to the Jeremiah of the will but nothing to verify Hannah Diana as a relative of Jeremiah other than Diana Seeley’s mention in the will. Jeremiah has a brother Jonathan but he is not married to Abigail and his daughter Hannah is shown married to Bennett Morris. Jeremiah’s father is also named Jonathan, so Hannah Diana could be his sister but she was not shown nor was the mother’s name listed. If you can place Hannah in the Youmans family please contact me.
