As far back as I have on my Seabourns(different spellings in the family)is Joseph Seabourn,born 1782,TN.He marries Mary Wilhite,1798, in Jefferson Co TN.In the early 1700's in Jefferson co are Seabourns named John and Edward getting land grants issued by NC.I have a copy of a letter written in 1931 from a Mabel Seabourn Evans written to Mollie Seaborn Hinkle about their common genealogy.In this letter ,she says:
"I've been trying to get track of my ggrandfather Seabourn whose first name,I think,is James Monroe and who married a widow by the name of Lucy Evans.His father was a cousin or brother,I think,of your ggrandfather,Joseph Seabourn and of the father of the Major George Seabourn/Seaborn who was sick at your grandfather Jim's house during the Civil War."
I have some information on the Seaborns of SC,but it doesn't go back beyond the George who married Grace Greenwood Machen.
I do have info from a SC Journal for 1766-it says "an Edward Seaborn from VA with wife and 1 child under 16.He received 200 A in Berkeley Co on 16 Dec 1766 from the king..Berkeley Co then extended from Charlestown to the NC line.This land was between the Broad and Saluda River on a branch called Bush River,which locates this land in Laurens or Newberry Co SC.
What I'm trying to do is either prove or disprove the connection between Joseph Seabourn of TN and George Seaborn of SC-any clues?
