Jacob Seely Bible Births & Deaths

Family Bible Information on Jacob Seely and Elizabeth Van Campen

“This information is taken from the family Bible and does not give a very full account of some of them. But I think (for) some of them their deaths were not known about by the ones who had the Bible until quite a time after it had happened and full date perhaps was not given. But this is the best I can give you.”
