Samuel Edsall b. 14 Feb 1768 Orange County, New York son of Jacobus (James) Edsall and Charlotte Barton m. Sarah Seeley b. 8 Oct 1772 daughter of Nathaniel Seeley and Jemima Collins. On 3 Nov 1788, lot 100 of 2,553 acres was surveyed to Nathaniel Seeley, Jr., James Seeley, Adam Seeley, Abner Hetfield, and Samuel Edsall in what is now the Town of Southport, Chemung County, New York. They also acquired lot 143 of 1,426 acres. Their residence was in the Seeley Creek Valley, Town of Southport. Enumerated as Samuel Headsall in 1790 in Chemung, Montgomery County (that portion that became Southport, Chemung County), New York with one male over age sixteen and two females in the household. Samuel listed as a taxpayer in 1794. Enumerated in Newtown (that portion that is now Southport), Tioga (that portion that is now Chemung) County, New York in 1800. Samuel and Sarah are related to have removed in 1805 from Sussex County, New Jersey to the southern part of Wells Township, Bradford County, Pennsylvania on land where Adam Seeley had made a beginning. This is an error as they had resided in neighboring Southport for several years prior to their removal to Wells. Another record (Dalrymple biography in Four County History) relates they settled in Columbia Township in 1803. They left the fertile Seeley Creek Valley for the highest elevation in Wells Township. Their residence was in southern Wells on warrant parcel 1392 where the Fries residence and later the Brown residence was located on Old Hickory Road just west of the Presbyterian Church. A portion of their property was in Columbia Township. They do not appear on the 1810 census of Smithfield, Lycoming County, which included that portion that became Wells Township. Samuel is related to have built the first frame house in the township in 1812. Samuel voted in the first election of Bradford County, 13 Oct 1812. At a Republican meeting held in Towanda, delegates were chosen and two men from each township in the County were appointed to the Committee of Vigilance and Correspondence. Samuel Edsall was appointed for Wells (Bradford Gazette, Towanda, Pennsylvania, September 21, 1813). His name appears on a list of grand jurors, 24 Nov 1814, at Towanda, occupation farmer. His name appears on a list of Travers Jurors drawn for December Session 1815, Columbia Township, farmer. A post office was established and named Edsallville, which appears in 1828 in a national directory of post offices, Samuel Edsall, post master. Samuel d. 3 July 1845 77y 4m 19d (ts). Sarah renounced her right to administer the estate of Samuel and requested eldest son Jesse Edsall be appointed administrator on 7 July 1845 (Bradford County Probate file 504). Solomon Bovier, Elmira Bovier, and Jesse Edsall requested N. Alvord, Jr., be appointed one of the administrators, 7 July 1845. Inventory taken 9 and 16 July 1845 by David Prutzman and John Strong. Sarah d. 11 Apr 1853 80y 6m 3d (ts) buried with Samuel in Coryland Cemetery near their residence.
