  • This family name was recorded by Bertie Lois Dumond McSwain as Seamonsin her formal listing of family history.  But in family discussionsabout family history and in an informal letter referring to families,she spelled it Seamon.  The formal list is dated before thediscussions and after the letter where it appears without the s.  Itis likely that the form without the s is either a lapse of memory whenspelling orally, or an unconscious variation.

    I have chosen to use the spelling Seamons.  This is the spelling Icommonly find in various family lines.  But some have followed aspelling found in one of the censuses, Seamans.  There was alsoanother unrelated family that did spell their name that way.  The namecomes originally from the German Siemens.  The other two forms areEnglish adaptations.  I see current families of this surname using thespelling Seamons.

    In April 2014, Ralph DuMond, a grandson, found Thomas' grave broken inthe St Charles Cemetery, St Charles, Arkansas County, Arkansas.Interestingly, it appears the surname is spelled there as Seamans.

    "I finally found my Great Grandfathers grave in the St. CharlesCemetery.  Seems all I had to do was actually go there and search forit.  Books, Phones & Internets were no help.  He was Granny's (EthelSeamans DuMond) father."
