George T. Seeley, Marcellus, was born in Skaneateles, Nov. 8, 1832, a son of Anson and Mary (Talbot) Seeley, aunt of Charles Thomas Talbot of Lowell, Mass. Anson Seeley was born in Dutchess Co., then moved to the town of Skaneateles where he always lived, and owned and conducted a farm in that town until the time of his death, May 18, 1856. His wife died April 11, 1881. George T. Seeley was educated in Skaneateles and came to reside in Marcellus in 1864, where he bought the farm on which he has since resided. Mr. Seeley’s farm consists of fine land under a high state of cultivation, but it may more properly be called a stock farm, as he raises Percheron horses and also French coach. There is nothing finer in this line than the stock Mr. Seeley raises, of which he sells a considerable number each year. He married Sarah, daughter of John Davey of Skaneateles, and they have had four children: Edward Anson, a graduate from Harvard College, who was born in Marcellus in 1863 and died March 10, 1891, in South Dakota, aged 28; Ida E., who is living at Rose Hill; Frank Talbot and Hattie M., who are living at home.”
