Settled in Queen Anne's Co., MD in abt 1715. Was given a land grant of 200 acres in the Colony of North Carolina by Royal Governor Josiah Martin on 23 July 1774. Was located in Anson County on the S.W. side of the Pee Dee River, joining a flat Rock and Tilghman Helms, near May's Mill. Also on 23 July 1774 was granted 200 acres in Anson County on the S.W. side of the Pee Dee River, on Muddy Branch, joining Seago's own line and that of George Lindsey.
John's Will, signed 6 Dec 1784 gives son William 200 acres near May's Mill, son Robert the home plantation, to peacefully possess six years after my death, son John to possess at the expiration of six years, my home plantation, to him and his heirs, farm with the containing of one hundred acres of land ...to Grandson James Seago, son of Abraham Seago died, 100 acres of land adjoining George Lindseys. To daughter Ann, a third of my movable estate...to daughter Elizabeth two thirds of my movable estate. Also will that my son Robert shall be the Executor of this my last will and testament, and do hereby acknowledge this to be my last will and Testament as witness hereof I have hereunto set my hand & seal this six day of December in the year of our Lord 1784. Witnessed by Wm Bennett, Charles Birmingham and one unreadable name. Note: Charles Birmingham and John Seago evidently could not write as they signed with their mark. Spelling of each named Seago is spelled SEAGO.
Daughter Elizabeth is mentioned in the will, as is Abraham, father of grandson James. Abraham is deceased. Daughter Margaret is apparently dead before the will was written. Info also gives wife as Elizabeth Birmingham, also apparently dead before the will was written.
