Samuel Seward, Sr. has the weakest proofs in the chain of descendants of Obadiah. All evidence collected to date indicates that he's the son of Obadiah Seward III and was born in New Jersey @ 1736. We do not know the name of his first wife, but she was probably the mother of all his children (exception - possibly Maria Seward Duit (Dewitt)). Zebedee Billiter, his son-in law, was bondsman at his marriage to Liddy Mitchell.
Samuel Sr. purchased property in Bracken County, KY in March 1798 - 92 acres on the banks of the Ohio River - from Edward Salts and Hugh Marshall (Deed Book A, pp. 29-32). A good share of his family came to live in the same general area. The names, spouses and geographical locations listed above come from the documents surrounding the settlement of Samuel Seward Sr.'s will (1815 and later)
The estate of Samuel Seward was appraised by Robert Wells, Mathew Artes, and Abner Leonard, Administrator. The record of the sale comes from Book B of Wills, p. 13, Bracken County, KY (March term, 1816). Personal property totalled $113.00.
