Reference is made to your request for information in regard to the Revolutionary War pension claim of Henry Seber.
The data which follow were obtained from papers on file in pension claim, S.37469, based upon the disability of Henry Seeber, which disability incurred during his military service.
Henry Seeber enlisted in 1777 and served as private in Captain Ryner Van Everen’s company in Colonel Cox’s New York regiment. He was wounded in the thighs at the battle of Oriskany. The place of his enlistment and length of his service are not given.
On account of the disability resulting from the wounds mentioned above, he was pensioned from November 25, 1786, at which time he was forty years of age and was living in Johnstown, Montgomery County, New York.
In 1828 he was living in German Flats, Herkimer County, New York.
He died prior to December 29, 1853.
His son, Suffrenes, was living in Warren, Herkimer County, New York, in 1858. The papers in this claim contain no further data relative to the soldier’s family.
Very truly yours, A.D. Hiller, Assistant to administrator.
