In using the Book The Seamans Family in America as Descended from Thomas Seamans of Swansea, Massachusetts, 1687, I am referencing two separate duplicates I created.
The first is Page 9. #31 John Seamans (John 4, Thomas 1)b. Oct. 4, 1728 at Swansea, Mass., d. May 10, 1813 at Clarendon, Vt., m to Patience Hopkins b. in 1734 d. May 1, 1791 buried in Chippenhook Cemetery, at West Claredon, Vt., they resided at Scituate, R.I., Killingly, Conn., and Claredon, Vt.
John Seamans served in Lieut. Angell's Co. in 1756; (Page 10.) was made Lieut in 4th Co. June 1762
The Second is(son of John Seamans #31)page 24, #117 John Seamans (John 31, John 4, Thomas 1,)b. in 1748/50 at Swansea, Mass. d. in 1838 at Eaton, Madisin CO., N.Y., m in 1779 to sarah Wescott, b. in 1750, d. in 1840. John and Sarah settled on a farm near Waterford, N.Y., he was a soldier in the Revolutionary War, present at the surrender of Gen. Burgoyne on Oct. 17, 1777. After the war he served in the 6th. Duchess County Regiment, for the defense of the Hudson. Resided at Starkborough, Vt., Waterford and Eaton, N.Y.
On Wikitree the Duplicate ID's are as follows:

John Seamans(Suffix) Lieutenant. Seaman-2271 created 6 October 2020
b.4 Oct 1728 d. 10 May 1815

On profile Seamans-44 the(Duplicate shows as Brother of: Seamans Lieutenant).
From Seamans-44, go to, Father of John Seamans: Seamans-118 created 19 October 2015. b. about 1749 d. about 1838
John Seaman(Suffix)Patriot Seaman-2269 created 6 October 2020

Note: See The Seamans Family in America as Descended from Thomas Seamans of Swansea, Massachusetts, 1687 page 24 #117 John Seamans for the birth and death information on Wikitree profile Seamans-44 (as noted above in this letter).
I hope this clears up the confusion.
