Who is Phebe wife of Justus Seeley?

+3 votes

Phebe Bissell Seeley, 2nd wife of Justus Seeley, is frequently seen as dau of Benjamin Bissell however there is no birth record for her and she is not named in his will. Jacobus (cited in profile) simply lists her as Phebe _________ when noting her as second wife of Justus Seeley.

Any ideas on the parents or other sources to check? If she was a Bissell (there is nothing that indicates that she is) I wondered if she is somehow connected to Hezekiah Bissell whose descendants are spotty in WikiTree.

Phebe is mother of Capt Ebenezer Seeley who served with Washington at Valley Forge; and elsewhere.

Sorry, Phebe is being elusive.
Find anything else on the daughter Phebe? Ref is Barbour Collection, yes?

I have her deceased on 11 Sep 1836. I think an 1849 marriage would be really late in life, age 76 if DOB is correct.

profile https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Seelye-128 which looks like it wasn't really sourced when it went up via GEDcom.
Maybe granddaughter?  Yes it is Barbour Collection.

I wasn’t able to find anything else, sorry.
