The Sebring Family Tree
|Margaret Sebring Ott, on right
Most of those in this country and many in Canada who bear the Sebring name trace their roots to a
common Dutch ancestor, Jan Roelofse Sebring. Your Catherine and the Sebrings who founded towns of
the same name here and in Florida are no exception. Most of what is known about the Sebrings was
collected by E. E. Sebring and other family members and published in 1974 as the volume Sebring
Collections. The information below showing the connection between your ancestor Catherine and our
Sebrings was taken from that volume.
Catherine Sebring was b. 28 Mar 1787 in NJ and d. 15 May 1877 in NY. She is buried at McNeil
Cemetery in Ovid, Seneca county NY. She m. 22 May 1804 Joshua Coshun, b. 16 Sept 1774 in Neshanic
NJ. There wasn't a death date listed for him but he is buried at Gospel Lot cemetery, Ovid NY. Catherine
was his second wife with the first being Catherine Van Voorhees, b. 30 Aug 1774 and d. 27 Sep 1802 in
Catherine Sebring was the daughter of Abraham Sebring, b. 23 Jun 1758 in Bridgewater, Somerset
County NJ and d. 16 April 1839. He is buried at Le Compte Cemetery, Ovid NY. He m. 5 April 1780 Jo
Abraham Sebring was the son of Folkerd Sebring, b. 11 Jan or Feb 1734 probably in Bridgewater NJ
and d. ? 1802, and his second wife Mary Van Tuyl, 17? - 1768.
Folkerd Sebring was the son of Volkert Sebring, b. 1705 Flatbush, Long Island NY and d. 8 July 1796
in Somerset County NJ. Volkert m. 5 April 1729 his second wife Marytje Aeten or Auten, b. 17? And d. 9
Volkert Sebring was the son of Roelof Jans Sebring, b. 1675 in Flatbush, Long Island NY and d. 1756
in Somerset County NJ. Roelof Jans m. c. 1700 Chrystyntje Volkertse, b. 1678 Bushwyck, Long Island
NY and d. prior to 1752.
Roelof Jans Sebring was the son of Jan Roelofse Sebring, b. 1631 in Beyle, Drenthe, Netherlands and
d. after 1703. Jan Roelofse m. Adrianna Polhemus, b. c. 1644 probably on the island of Itamarca Brazil
and d. prior to 1702.
I will quickly trace our Sebrings from George and Elizabeth (Larkins) who were the parents of the
siblings who founded Sebring OH and later Sebring FL. Taking this line back to a common ancestor will
show you the relationship between your Sebring line and this one.
George E. Sebring, 1834-1915, m. Elizabeth A. Larkins, 1836-1910. George was the son of George
Sebring, 1789-1852 and Margaret Ingram c. 1805-1819. This George was the son of Henry Sebring,
1764-1855 m. Elizabeth Bennett, 1766-1856. Henry Sebring was the son of John Sebring, 1738-1777 m.
Anna Smith, 17?-17?. John Sebring was the son of Johannes Sebring, 1702-1773 and Elinor Aeten or
Auten, 17?-<1790. Johannes Sebring was the son of Roelof Jans Sebring and Chrystyntje Volkertse. This
would make Johannes Sebring a brother of Volkert Sebring from your line and the common ancestors
Roelof Jans Sebring and Chrystyntje Volkertse.
