Manly was educated at Yale and graduated from the
Pittsfield Medical School, 1826. For ten years he was a
physician in Milton, Conn. His father had an iron foun-
dry in Woodville, Conn., and about 1836 Manly engaged
in this business, the name of the firm being M. & J. Peters.
Later he was inspector of the iron and steel used in build-
ing the Collins line of steamers. In 1856 he bought a
tract of land near Knoxville, Tenn. Here was dis-
covered that rich vein of iron ore first developed during
the Civil war. The war began before the work was
finished. Dr. Peters returned to Connecticut in the fall
of i860, having been outspoken in his loyalty to the Union
he could not live in the South. But Jefferson Davis
needed this ore, and sent a letter to Dr. Peters offering
him protection, and promising money to complete the
furnaces, and that the property should not be confiscated.
This letter was delivered to Dr. Peters in Norwich. He
gave it no consideration, though to him it meant wealth.
He did not even speak of it, and Gen. Longstreet used the
lumber designed to build the hamlet, for Confederate cof-
fins, and Southern mules and horses fed on the farm. Dr.
Peters always retained his interest in his profession and
kept in touch with the march of science. He resumed
his medical practice, ministered to the families of the
soldiers, and did many charitable deeds, now but blessed
memories to those he cheered with his quaint humor
and his kindly ways. 1846-47-48-50, he was justice of
the peace in Warren, Conn.

the journey and of the early life of the settlement made
a great impression on Theodore. He was educated at

Biiffalo. He was city marshal of Buffalo, and later city
clerk. 1853-54, he was a member of the Assembly of

members of the State Board of Assessors. 1865, he was
elected president of the State Agricultural Society. About
1865 he removed to Maryland, but was soon appointed
to the Department of the Interior in Washington, as an
agent to visit the South, and to examine its agricultural
resources. After this he settled in Brooklyn, N. Y., and
was an officer of the Internal Revenue Department and of
the Appraiser's Department at the Custom House. He
was at one time associate editor of the Rural New Yorker.
He was associated with the World. He established in

Joseph was a physician and died of the smallpox.
When he found that he had been exposed to the disease
he settled all his affairs and made what provision he could
for his family. His gravestone is standing in Chatham,
Conn., and is inscribed: "In memory of Joseph Peters
bom Aug. 27, 1726, died Jan. 27, 1761, to ye great grief
of his relict five children & acquaintances, whose chari-
ties to ye poor entitle him to ye temple of everlasting
memory, ye blessings of God. Mortals must die to be-
come immortal. Heaven gained only through Death,
Faith in crucifixion Hope by resurrection."

He may be the Joseph who was in the 8th Co. (Capt.
Hobbey's), 1755, from Sept. 5 to Dec. 6; 1756, Aug. 3 to
Dec. i; and again, 1757, Ap. 5, in the 3d Co., under

NEW HAMPSHIRE

SEBORNE {Seherance)

The descent of the New Hampshire Peters is purely
inferential, and the only clue — ^but which, fortunately, is
of serious importance— is the imusual name of Sebome.
The birth of the second child of Andrew 3 II of Andover
is recorded on the Andover records as Sibbons. In his
grandfather's will the name is Seberance.* It is evident
that this is the real name, and that Sibbons, Sebome,
Seaborn (and probably the name of Seavems) are spell-
ings according to the usual clipping English pronunciation
of long family names, like Cholmondeley, which is pro-
nounced Chumley, Beecham for Beauchamp, Sinclair for
Saint Clair, etc. The name is, therefore, our only clue,
but it is a fairly safe one to follow, especially in view of
the fact that Concord, N. H., was largely settled by
Andover people, that the dates correspond, and that Sib-
bons, or Sebome (Seberance), disappears from Andover.

The first mention of Sebome we find in New Hamp-
shire is in 1747, when he is in garrison in Mr. Jonathan
Eastman's house at the same time that his son (or brother)
James is in garrison in Capt. Henry Lovejoy's house.
Jonathan Eastman's house was on the Mill road, opposite
the home of Mr. Aaron Shute, in the West parish ; " Sea-
borne" Peters and William Peters are both there. In
1 75 1 Sebome is mentioned as follows: "I Sebom Peters

* According to his grandfather's will he is to have "a payer of
oxren worth tenne pounds in pay or tenne pounds other wise as my
Executors & he shall agree when he is a (fit?) age."

the land is boimded "south by land of Barachias Famum,
east and north by common land, and west on Turkey
Bogg ; also twenty-eight acres by Turkey river near river
Bank, bounded south east by Eastman's mill farm," etc.
The deed is signed Seborne Peters, 1751, Nov. 5.

In the list of church members Seborne Peters stands
No. 16, and Mary Peters No. 17; presumably they were
husband and wife, but whether of the first or second New
Hampshire generation it is impossible to say. There are
dates only at intervals; the date of No. 15 is 1744, but it
is possible that there were no admissions for some years
after.

In 1757 Seaborn Peters is mentioned: "One head, one
house, o land, i horse, o oxen, 2 cows." This gives the
impression of a very young man, just beginning life and
as yet unmarried. Probably he is of the third generation.
