Al, Has the debate settled on who Elijah Grant Seamonds' father was? I'm pretty sure it WASN'T Ephraim Jr. I live in Albemarle County, let me know if I can look anything up for you. Joan Graves

...Elijah and Lucy had 6 sons that I know of - Enoch (my ancestor), William, Elijah II, Payton, Charles, and Henry. I have most of this family's descendants. Do you have the ancestors of Lucy beyond her parents? I will send whatever you want from the Seamands family by return attachment.Al (in Baltimore MD)

Harriett, I found out today that my Sarah Henderson Simmons (married James Brammer) was most likely the dau of Elijah Grant Seamonds and Lucy Sandridge/Sandage. I think you just might have nailed it home when you stated Stephen Sandridge was married to a Sarah with surname most likely being Henderson. I have always thought that my Sarah's middle name was from an ancestor's surname. Any help to further prove this lineage would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance......Diana

Good news: I have solved the great mystery of why many of us have no record of this woman. Bad news: She isn't a Sandridge at all. Lucy Seamands was a KEATON.
Refer to the following:
George Selden Wallace, Cabell County Annals and Families (Seamonds), Pg 484-485, Cabell Co Public Library, 455 Ninth Street, Huntington, WV 25701, 1001008985.
Her sister Justine Keaton married Reuben Sandridge (son of Stephen), and I bet people assumed both sister's last name was Sandridge, but it was Justine's married name. So Lucy's maiden name was Keeton, not Sandridge at all, that's why we can't find her.

I have the children of Elijah Grant Seamands (Rev.) and Lucy "Sandridge". Can you take a family tree maker file? Also, have a problem that some are indicating that Lucy's real maiden name is Keaton??? Can you help. I can take attachments in Word or Family tree maker.

Diana: Enoch, son of Elijah Grant Seamands Rev., married Ruth Brammer (I have pictures). If Sarah married James Brammer, it must be brother, sister, sister, brother marriages between the Seamands and Brammer families. Do you have info on Brammer ancestors? I have it if you need it. Al

Linda: Additional information. The Lucy Sandridge m. to Elijah Seamands (1796) info shows children born to pair as late a 1824. How does this relate to your info on m. in 1804?.
