Where did Abner H. Cilley, b. abt. 1794, d. 4 Feb 1872 in Canaan, NH, come from? He just seems to appear in Canaan around 1813, but his parents cannot be found. He m. Sarah Bradbury on 14 Dec 1815. Her family came to CT and it is possible that Abner may have come from there also. Could he be the son of Abner Seelye (son of Abner Seelye and Hannah Thayer) b. 31 May 1768 in New Milford, CT?
