PVT. PEYTON H. SEAMANDS
Co. H, 29th Va., Infantry Regt.
A native of Cabell Co. in West Virginia, near the border of Ohio and Kentucky, Peyton Henderson Seamands was born Jan. 31, 1844. His ancestral roots were deep in the Old Dominion where his great grandfather, Jonathan Seamands, had served in the Virginia militia during the American Revolution.
The Seamands family were staunch Confederate sympathizers living in an area of divided sympathies, where several of "Pate's" cousins served in the Union army, and on occasion suffered for their convictions. Peyton's older brother, Charles, enlisted as a private in Co. E, 8th Va. Cav. And was killed at the Battle of New Hope, near Atlanta..."
