Hi Rachel,
Thanks for replying. Yes, I guess everyone will have to keep digging for Sebern's parents. Hopefully, somewhere, there is a page or two with enough information to be able to track his lineage. It is so frustrating to be stopped on a line at 1820, which seems like yesterday in genealogical terms. It's especially frustrating since my mother was born the year he died and my grandmother knew him. I, unfortunately, didn't start asking questions until it was too late to talk with my grandmother about it. Perhaps she knew little or nothing about her great grandfather's parents. Or a lot. In any case, that possible source is gone.
It is some comfort to know that some 20th great grandchild will probably be able to look up everything about me. I just wish we could do the same for all the Seberns in our lines.
