Like my grand daddy always said, "If you can't out fight em - out BREED 'em" and the Seal family is prolific. They all go back to one common Ancestor who came from England in the early 1800's. They all branch off from his children. Like I said. They were and are prolific.

at the first it was seales and it was not 1800's it was 1700's the first seal that came here was william seals. in england such as seal were always spelled with this final e. an example- green and brown wear colors, but also proper family names.to distinguish the proper names of green and family they were spelled greene-browne.seal was a place.a dwelling,an area, but as a proper name the english spelled it seale

The River Seals - 1690-1991 - " 'The first reference to a William Seale Sr. is on 'Bonded Passengers to America' who came on the HMS York to Maryland from Clerkenwall, England in February of 1740. They then had families and came to what was then HAWKINS county in the early 1800's or late 1790's. The records put them in North Carolina (which was once where we are in Hancock County, though not where they were listed) and Virginia. I just simply put that there Scarlett. Sorry. William Seale SR. who was bonded for theft of pewter dishware never set foot in what is Hancock County Tennessee. It was his descendants about two or three generations down the road. I am kin to them too, Scarlett, Scarlettswrath, seal, etc.

Hancock County came into being in 1844. Pre that it was Hawkins and Claiborne. The Seale/Seals/Seal families were on the Hawkins side as per a document in 1836.

I'm not as dumb as I act most of the time.

You would have to research this. I don't know. He would've had to be 'kin' though. Like I said they were 'prolific' and since Hancock County Tennessee and some of the surrounding areas were Union sympathizers a lot of Southern sympathizers moved to Missouri and TEXAS during or right before the Civil War. Lots of families left here. Just look it up. You need that book: The River Seals by Betty Jean Price 1991. I think they have it for sale or at least for reference at the Historical Society at the Old Jail in Sneedville. You may have to hit the library and find out who he was and work BACKWARD. Use the Census. Good luck.

This is the most interesting thing! I immediately went to Netflix to order the movie since we had never seen it. The movie has never been released on DVD and is not listed under Hopper's credits. On Amazon the VCR is selling for $31. This movie was apparently squashed. I read a little about Seal; want to read more. interesting stuff. There's a LOT about that whole Central American fiasco we don't know, and may never. Lots of big names involved in those drug running activities--for various reasons. Oliver North is the anti-christ. Well, okay. Maybe he's just really really bad.
