About Lt. John Mott
Descendants of Capt. John Seaman of Hempstead, Long Island, NY according to Mary Thomas Seaman: 1928
Notes for John Mott:
John , son of Adam Mott, born about 1658, mar. Sarah, daughter of John Seaman, was of Hempstead, and had living in 1698 children John , James , Sarah , and Martha , and two sons born later, Patrick , and Henry . He is traced to the Year 1727, and then disappears from the record. It has not been possible as yet to identify a John of Hempstead with wife Rebecca, as his son, although there is a strong probability of the connection. Nor is the son James  traced. One James was of Hempstead, whose son James mar. Anna Rogers at Huntington in 1723 and gave rise to a long line of descendants, but the connection with John  is problematical. Mrs. Bunker gives John2 two other sons, Henry3 and Patrick3, but I can find no proof of the assumption, and until Henry's2 children are known, it is unsafe to ascribe these two men, who were certainly brothers, to John2. The discovery of John's bible or family record is very much to be hoped for, and it seems highly probable that some Long Island home will yet prove to be its possessor, and so solve many perplexing questions. : Harris, Edward Doubleday "The Descendants of Adam Mott of Hempstead, Long Island, NY" [Lancester, PA: The New Era Printing Co., 1906] Revised Edition p. 2\

Notes for Patrick Mott:
"Of Patrick , who was a man of prominence in Hempstead (south), we know strangely little. He was born 1698-1701, was certainly alive in 1771 and dead in 1775. He, or a son of the same name, had wife Deborah who died 1792, aged 64. One Patrick, perhaps a grandson, and certainly son of a William, died in 1845, then of New York, aged 55, leaving son Richard Wood and daughter Mary W." : Harris, Edward Doubleday "The Descendants of Adam Mott of Hempstead, Long Island, NY" [Lancester, PA: The New Era Printing Co., 1906] Revised Edition p. 2\
