Richard Buffington of Chester Co., Pa. was the grandfather of Alse Seeds McNamee, w/o Hugh. In the Chester Co., Pa. papers in the Chester Co., Pa. library are the Buffington-Marshall papers, now transcribed. One is the indenture of Ealse Seeds in 1756 to James Marshall to learn weaving. (Edward Seeds and David Fling, husbands of Abigail Buffington both were weavers). Paper #159 is a letter to John Buffington of West Bradford from his son, John Buffington in Rowan NC (New Garden-apparently a Quaker Monthly meeting)-he apologizes to his father (reason unknown) and states he willbe marrying Sarah Maclemy (which we all have seen spelled for McNamee)
on the 25th of May, and that he has as much mason work to do as he can do. (Letter dtd. 25 April 1768).
#1087 is a receipt dtd. 26 February 1774 of Jane Macnameee by the hand of John Buffington to James Marshall
This shows other McNamee's with the Buffington family which our Alis Seeds McNamee descends from through her mother Abigail Buffington Seeds Fling. In 2186 there is a draft of the will of Abigail Seeds, of Bradford, undated-will on reverse.
