Capt. John Seaman had 5 children between the ages of 64 and 70 years old.
Tip: Correct the birth date of Capt. John Seaman (born between 1603 and 1610) or the following children:
Deborah Seaman, Richard Seaman, Nathaniel Seaman, Samuel Seaman, Thomas Seaman

I believe so, Keri. Because he married the second wife after age 57 and she was quite young, barely of age to marry. (According to the MPs). It is rare, but not impossible.

His findagrave profile includes a biography that cites: from Seaman, Mary Thomas, "The Seaman Family in America...," (New York: TA Wright, 1928) page 21

"The Seaman family in America as descended from Captain John Seaman of Hempstead, Long Island" compiled by Mary Thomas Seaman, assisted by James Haviland Seaman, Jr.

In another Seaman genealogy I read that there are three completely distinct American Seaman families. So of course that complicates things a little bit, if we're not careful.

The Long Island Seaman family is all over "Records of the towns of North and South Hempstead, Long Island" of which there are several volumes.
