Looking for additional information. ALl I have is a DAR application:
In the application, Anna states:
She is the wife of Daniel Harmon Seavey.
She was born in Rochester, Monroe, New York. [No date, but if Elizabeth Cady was born in 1800, estimate 1816 - 1832.]
She is the daughter of Henry Witbeck and Elizabeth Cady. Elizabeth Cady was born in Canaan, Columbia, New York 17 May 1800.
She is the granddaughter of Ela Cady and Elizabeth Waterman. Ela Cady was born in Canaan [Columbia, New York] 4 April 1781, died 17 Dec 1843. Elizabeth Waterman was born in Canaan, Columbia, New York 10 Oct 1779.
She is the great-granddaughter of Palmer Cady and Rebecca Reed. Palmer Cady was born in England on 04 July 1748. He died in Canaan, Columbia, New York after 1780.
Under "Ancestor's Service" she writes:
Palmer Cady, born in England, came to America before [the] Revolutionary War, settling in Canaan, Columbia County, New York. Serving in revolutionary Was as Sergeant and Sergeant Major of Elmore's State Regiment from 16th of April to October 1776, as Ensign 1776 to 1777, lieutenant 1778. Retired 1st January 1783.
Above extract is from "Historical Reprints of Officers of the Continental Army during the War of the Revolution" by J. B. Heitman Washington, DC, 1893.
Serving as Lieut. Colonel of the Second Canadian Regiment of Militia and under the command of Colonel Moses Hazen. From above.
See [also?] manuscript volumes entitled "Assembly Papers", pages 236 of Volume 15 and page 303 of Volume 23.
The LDS IGI has an Ely Cady and wife Betsey christening five children in the Congregational Church of New Concord at Chatham, Columbia, New York. They were:
Alexander Frazer (2 Nov 1823)
Frances Cady Haddock Hull, daughter of Alexander Cady, DAR number 173653, states in her DAR application:
My record as descendant of Palmer Cady is the same as Mrs. Anna Witbeck Seavey [...] her mother and my father were grandchildren of Palmer Cady.
The Laura Elizabeth christened in 1823 might be the "Elizabeth Cady" who was Anna Witbeck's mother, but 23 is extremely old to be christened.
I'm told that the research standards of the DAR before 1945 or so were very lax; mostly they were looking for white women with clean fingernails who could show up sober to afternoon meetings.
