Message Board Post:
I posted one of the original messages about the Alcorns- Seymour Alcorn (son of Philip Alcorn) and father of Rodney Alcorn. Seymour was born to Philip and Anna Alcorn in 1842 in New Orleans, LA. He was the only child born to them. Philip came to New Orleans from Montgomery County, MD at age 25 in 1831 on a slave ship from Baltimore, Md. There are many of us Alcorns who would like to solve the mystery of the family left behind (involuntarily) by Philip in 1831. Do you know of a wife he had in Maryland- any children, his parents' names? Seymour did name one of his sons Thomas.Seymour's wife's name was Emma Fletcher Alcorn. I have a picture of the two of them. He was a slater by trade after the Civil War.
Seymour was also a slater in the United States Colored Troops (Corps D' Afrique) during the Civil War. I have been to his grave site. His father Philip died circa 1870 in New Orleans. Rodney was Seymour's son as was my grandfather Oliver. I would like to know more about the Philip Alcorn your family knew. I think they are one and the same.
