Our friend Garner Osborn, spent over 15 years gathering Seeley family records. During that time he originated the Seeley Newsletter, thus founding the Seeley Genealogical Society. Without him and his later encouragement and inspiration, our organization might have gone by the wayside. The Seeley Genealogical Society will always be grateful to him and will always be dedicated to his memory.
