I really appreciate you doing this research for me.
If you don't mind, I have a problem with this family that I have been unable to solve.
As you said, Mary Dollard married Patrick Seaver of Rogerstown in 1795. When Patrick died, she ended up living in Ballyboughal, and that property passed to Patrick Matthew Seaver who was my great great grandfather.
You listed Mary and Patrick's children. Here is the problem: In that same time frame, Peter Seaver was born to a Patrick Seaver of Rogerstown, and the Rogerstown estate eventually passed to Peter. My problem has been to prove the parents of Peter. Everything points to it being Mary Dollard and Patrick Seaver, but he does not appear anywhere in their list of children.
You will no doubt be familiar with George Seaver's book "The Seavers of Lusk and Rogerstown". In that book, he quotes Seaver land deeds and gives a short family tree from that Seaver era. He says that Joseph Seaver who married Mary Ann Wade in 1761 had a son Patrick and another son Peter. That Patrick inherited Rogerstown, and in turn, his son Peter inherited it after him, I have seen on numerous family trees on Ancestry that people have said that Peter's parents were Mary Dollard and Patrick Seaver. I have never been able to accept this because it just doesn't add up, and appears on no official records. George Seaver also says that Patrick's son who was also Patrick inherited the property in Ballyboughal that belonged to his grandfather Joseph. So it would be easy to assume that this is my great great grandfather.
I am wondering and hoping that you might, after many years of research, be able to shed some light on the truth behind this mystery. I have a Seaver family chart, which lists Joseph Seaver's descendants as Patrick and then Peter. I can't see how my Patrick fits into that tree, and yet he must. I have seen in his own writing on Australian documents that his father was Patrick Seaver and his mother was Mary Dollard.
Thanks for your time and efforts.
