89. STEPHEN5 SEYMOUR (Joseph4, Zachariah3, John2, Richard1), born at Hartford, Conn., 9 June 1759, died —; married 20 Sept. 1786, MARIETTA GRISWOLD.

According to one account, he married ABIGAIL SIMONS of Colebrook. As he had children born before 1786, she may have been his first wife.

He moved over the line into Sandisfield, Mass., about 1800, and was living there in 1834; but in 1838 he removed to Granville, Mass., and in 1844 to Ludlow.

Allen, Lyman and Stephen Seymour were scholars in the Colebrook North District School in 1796.

He served as Sergeant in the Revolutionary War for three years; was at Peekskill, White Plains, New York, New Brunswick, and Monmouth, but not actually engaged in the battle at the last place. His application states that he substituted for his brother, Sergt. Joseph.
