Seybert Family Genealogy Forum
I may be able to help you regarding your inquiry concerning Harvey Seybert. I have his ancestral genealogy; according to the records I have he was born on February 26, 1825 and died in 1910. I do not know if he married or anything of his descendants or where he is buried. His parents were Mary Seybert and Thomas Thompson, who I know nothing more about. Inasmuch as Harvey took his mother’s name, you may be correct in concluding he was illegitimate. Mary, as you say, was the daughter of James Seybert and Ruth Jones of Virginia; they are buried in Madison County according to my records though I have never been there to verify it. James was the son of John Henry Seybert (my ancestor as well) who served in the Revolutionary War and was the son of Captain Johan Jacob Seybert, born in Germany. I assume you know the history of Fort Seybert, VA, and the Indian massacre there on 28 April 1758 which killed most of the Seyberts.
If you use Family Tree Maker, I can send you Harvey’s ancestral line, as far as I have it.
What I have never done is to trace the Indiana Seyberts who came from VA. If you have researched that line and have info, I would like to hear from you.
