I believe the family you are inquiring about is as follows (from "A History of the Seymour Family" by D. L. Jacobus):
JOHN(7) SEYMOUR [William(6-5), John(4-3-2), Richard(1)], born 15 Nov. 1792, died at Stillwater, N.Y., 16 June 1824; married first, SARAH MONTGOMERY, born 12 Jan. 1793, died 16 June 1824; married second, HARRIET MONTGOMERY, born 29 Sept. 1797, died at Fredonia, N.Y., Aug. 1864.
Children by first wife:
i. HARRIE(8), b. 13 Sept. 1815; m.
ABRAHAM B. ELSTON.
ii. SILAS, b. 20 June 1817; General, res.
(1879) Tremont House, Boston, Mass.;
m. 23 Dec. 1840, DELIA S. FRENCH,
b. 23 Jan. 1821. Children:
I. Florence((9), b. 5 Nov. 1841; m.
2 Dec. 1862, Theodore W. Bayard
II. GEORGE F., b. 11 Oct. 1844.
III. Hanson Risley, b. 24 Jan. 1847;
d. 18 Dec. 1847.
IV. James M., b. 18 Mar. 1850.
V. Jeanie, b. 10 June 1857
VI. Silas, b. 13 Aug. 1860.

iii. ELIZABETH, b. 6 Dec. 1820; d. 29
Nov. 1833.
iv. SARAH, b. 9 Sept. 1823; m. RICHARD
R. DECKER.

Children by second wife:
v. ROBERT M., b. 4 Oct. 1829; m.
SARAH FOX
vi. LAURA, b. 9 Aug. 1833.

There is nothing further on descendants; however, there is much on all of John(7)s ancestors, back to John Seymour (ca. 1535 - 1605) of Sawbridgeworth, Herts, England.
