I reviewed my Seaver database and came up with a Jonathan Freeman (b. 1770 Littleton MA) who married Abigail Freeman and lived in Waitsville VT. At least some of their children are in the IGI, starting in 1809.
It's possible that your Watson Freeman Seaver was their son. To prove it, you would need to look for land, probate or church records for Jonathan, Abigail and Watson, since there don't seem to be any vital records.

If Jonathan Seaver is his father, then his line would be from the immigrant Robert Seaver:

1. Robert Seaver (1608-1683) m. 1634 Elizabeth Ballard
2. Shubael Seaver (1640-1730) m. 1672 Hannah Wilson.
3. Joseph Seaver (1675-1754) m. 1702 Mary Read
4. Nathaniel Seaver (1709-1777) m. 1738 Rebecca Willis.
5. Josiah Willis Seaver (1742-1841) m. 1769 Sarah Whitcomb
6. Jonathan Seaver (1770-?) m. Abigail Freeman.

I have complete family data for these families down to at least Josiah Willis Seaver. Write me offline if you need more info. (
