Requested Information:

Samantha’s grandfather was George William Seeley, born Holton, ME, 10 March 1915, died 21 March 1984. His mother was Cora Belle Speed, born Danforth, ME, April 1870, married 14 Jan 1893, Nehemiah Ezekiel Seeley, born Hartland, Carleton, New Brunswick, Canada, March 1871. Samantha found a listing for a Nehemiah Seeley who was born 1869/1870 in Wakefield, Carleton, New Brunswick, to John Seeley and Mary Anne Drake. Since the dates and cities do not match completely and there is no listed middle name, she was not sure whether this was the next step back in her Seeley line.
