A photo on the SGS Facebook page of several Seeley descendants posing in their SGS t-shirts in Marietta, OH during the 2017 SGS Reunion got a lot of attention with several folks saying “I’m a Seeley/Seely too”, including Katherine. Katherine says that her father was Delbert C Seeley and her mother was Annie Marie Seeley (Rhine) but she doesn’t know how she fits in to any Seeley line. According to her Facebook profile Katherine grew up in Marysville, Yuba, CA.

In the SGS database we have Charles Delbert Seeley b. 1858 Seneca Co NY, married 1882 Allegan Co MI to Sarah Elizabeth Weaver, died 1951 Thurston MI. He was a son of William Seely and Harriet Louise Worden. William is SGS# 3507. So Katherine’s line is Katherine, Delbert Charles, Delbert Edwin, Charles Delbert, William, Daniel Joseph, John, John, Samuel, Jonas, Obadiah.
This was all a bit confusing because of multiple marriages. It looks like Annie Rhines was md 1st to Lester Donaldson, then to Delbert Charles Seeley, then to Hermes Brown.
Meanwhile Delbert Charles Seeley was md 1st to Helen Merrifield, then to Annie Marie Rhines Donaldson, then to Odis Hartman.
