RE: Seth Higley
Jane, I have his parents marriage as 1749. I had seen the other Seth in the DAR records, allot of patriotic service from these CT families. I added another change after I contacted you, I agree with you that the 1768 date is not valid and found that the child listed as being from that marriage was born after he married Lucy Herod, so there is only 1 Lucy in my opinion but listed what I found to benefit others. Nice to meet you.

RE: Seth Higley
Hi Jane, I have left a little more detail in the bio which includes where the info came from on the marriages for Seth. Without seeing the source materials in the DAR records, I can not verify if perhaps it is based on another published material or some other type of source record, if this is in error or if indeed he did loose a wife before Lucy Herod.

I do have some materials on this family but not sure it is the same work that you have. If it is ever determined that Lucy Holcomb and Lucy Herod are the same person, I will update the bio again at that time. If you run into anything conclusive either way, feel free to touch base with me again. I am always pleased to revisit the sources as more and more is being released that just may someday provide the answer.

Nice to hear from you.

RE: Elizabeth Hotchkiss and Knapps

I believe that Pamela's father (Gilbert Knapp) and Patty's father (Obadiah Knapp) were brothers, so they would have been 1st cousins if this is correct. Their father was Justus Knapp.

Elizabeth Hotchkiss

Thanks for the message. I'm not kin to the Smiths directly. I'm related to the Knapp's. Almira Smith married Benjamin Knapp. She was the dau of Aaron & Elizabeth. I found Hotchkiss in Sometimes I go beyond my direct tree and enter distant relatives. If you have a connection to Ancestry maybe one of the other family tree owners might know.
