You might be on to something here. The "Seaman" and "Joseph" names are a logical fit, as is the Hempstead, Long Island, connection - Peter Wright was born there. The date we have for Peter's birth - July 9, 1740 - seems a little off, but it could be 1) simply wrong or 2) it might be that one of the dates we're looking at is 'old style' or Julian rather than 'new style' or Gregorian - apparently both styles were in use in the colonies until 1750. Thanks very much for the insight.
