Also see . . . Wikipedia entry for Joshua Seney. “Seney was again called to political service when he was elected to the First United States Congress in 1789. He was re-elected for the 1791–1793 term but resigned from Congress on December 6, 1792 to take up his new duties as a judge of the state court for the district of Baltimore. He served as a justice until 1796. In 1798 Seney ran for Congress again as a Republican. He defeated the incumbent Federalist, William Hindman but died before taking office.” (Submitted on February 11, 2018.)
1. Locate descendants of Joshua Seney
I'm interesed in identifying Joshua Seney's descendants. My mother is a Seney on her father's side.
Some Seney's are burried in the cemetery in Church Hill. George was married to Frances Roseberry Ross also from Queen Anne county. On her mother's side, she was a Stevens.
As you can see, I don't know much about my family and would appreciate any information you are able to find.
Editor's Note: The Historical Marker database is not intended for genealogical research, so regrettably can't help much with your search. Hopefully this information will come to the attention of someone with better knowledge of the Seney history.
