Maj. Thomas Y. Seymour
After resigning from the army in 1778, Seymour returned to Hartford (in 1780) and began the practice of law. He acted as State's Attorney for Hartford County from 1796 to 1807, and represented Hartford in the Connecticut General Assembly between 1795 and 1806. Among his many marks of honor was also the fact that in 1791 he served as an active member of a Connecticut Anti-Slavery Society.
