Hi Shawn.. I too am looking for the same Samuel Seeley. Deborah's maidan name is Benjamin.

Have you had any luck in your search?

Attached is what I have found:
Samuel Seeley was a Revolutionary soldier. He came to the Connecticut grant before the war. After the war he came back to look after his family, but could not find them. Thinking they were killed, or had died, he went back to Goshen, NY., from whence he originally came, where he married Miss Deborah Benjamin, a sister of Richard Benjamin, and in 1802 came to Wyalusing creek, where he lived a few years, and then removed to the Herrick place, where he remained some seventeen or eighteen years, and then removed to the State of New York, where he resided twenty-one years. While there he instituted measures to secure a pension, and going to Crawford Co., Pa., to get the certificate of the captain of the company in which he served in the war, he found, much to his surprise and pleasure, the prothonotary of that county to be the husband of his daughter, born just after he was drafted into the army. His remaining children (he had three at the time he was drafted) were living in that vicinity. From them he learned his family had been driven off by the Indians, and everything in their neighborhood had been destroyed.

Do you know of the prothonotary that married Samuel Seeley's daughter?

Thank you inadvance.
