From looking at the profiles here on WikiTree for John See it looks like he had a daughter named Elizabeth who married twice, first to William Alderson and second to Elihu Ellis.

Two profiles for John See:

Though on family search it has listed as a daughter of John See an Eliabeth See who was married to Douglas Wyatt.

Elizabeth (See) Wyatt (1781)

Does anyone have any insights?

Hi Erik,

It seems you have just opened Pandora's box. There are many duplicate profiles (Spouses, children, etc.) in this branch. A lot of research has to be done to fix it.


The husbands of the 2 Margarets are full brothers.

There also is another duplicate of Margaret married to one of them.


Frederick Michael, one of the sons, is married to 3 duplicate wifes.

John See-401 is one of his sons. John See-12 has diffrent parents, but both Johns have a sister named Catherine, both Catherines having the same DOB and POB and the same married name (Johnston).

Being from Virginia, I can tell you that there are many families with the name of "Seay". I've never known any "See" families.

You may want to look up Seay.
