My grandmother was a Seals from Hancock Co, Tenn. Her father was John C. Seals. John was the son of William Seal 111.
note the "s" was absent in the spellimg of Williams' name.
William Seal b Dec.15,1803,married to Mary Green.
Williams parents were William Barach Seal b.1767 and Elzabeth Hawks.
Ths is all I have. Hope it helps.
A copy of Ed's death certificate should give you the name of his father and mother. This information is USUALLY given to the County by a relative and they would know this type of information. To order a copy fo his death certificate you will need the certific ate number. Go to the Kentucky Vital Records site at http://publichealth.state.ky.us/vital.htm
Click on KyGenWeb under Search Kentucky Indexes and this will let you search for his certificate number (Kentucky Death Index 1911-2000)
Go back to the Vital Records page.
Click on Death Certificates in the upper right corner and it will take you to the Ordering a Certificate page and the info you need.
If this is your Ed, he was listed as:
Certificate number: 26656
Death Date: 22 Nov 1940
Age : 78
Death Place: Letcher
Hope this helps.

HI AND THANKS FOR THE INFORMATION BUT I NEED TO KNOW WHO THE SIBLINGS ARE TO JOHN C. SEALS AND WILLIAM SEAL111 MAYBE THIS WOULD BE THE RIGHT JOHN SEALS, WHAT WAS YOUR GRANDMOTHERS FIRST NAME WE MAY BE CONNECTED
Hi, My grandmother's name was Addiline "addie Lou" Seals. She had a brother whose name was Wheeler.
I don't think I have any further info of her siblings. I have a photo of Uncle Wheeler.
THANK YOU FOR THE INFORMATION I'M STILL NOT SURE IF WE ARE CONNECTED YET
BUT THANKS DELLA
John C. Seal was my great grandfather, Wheeler was my grandfather.....He was first married to Sarah Elizabeth Ramsey, they had 2-boys ..Ester Hylton and Tipton Haynes. Tipton Haynes was my father. My name is Margaret (Margie R.Seal), formerly of Maynardville, Tn. I am trying to find out something about John C's wife who was Francis Moore of Virginia, Halifax Co. i believe.Her mother was Elizabeth and I think her last name was Winkler. I would LOVE to have a picture of grandpa Wheeler.
Fances Moore, married to John C Seal was my great grandmother. We once had a picturte of her when I was very young but I do not know what ever happened to it. I know nothing more about her.
I do have the picture of Uncle Wheeler and if you send me your email I will have my daughter to scan it and send it to you. if you have a printer you can print it. It is in black and white and a full picture of him. He is standing in what looks like a back yard.
I suppose then, you are my cousin. Nice to meet you.
I was recently in another my Family.com board and there are some wrinklers there. I am not sure of the URL or i would post it.
One of my email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
