Charles Seeley is SGS# 1194 and his son Henry S is SGS# 2935. In our “Seventh Generation Families of Nathaniel Seeley” we don’t have information that Henry had descendants, nor do we list his brother Albert/Adelbert. Our database does not have Henry’s children either so I will be updating the Ancestral File to show these additions.

I couldn’t find a marriage record for Henry S and his wife Ann, nor her death record. If anyone has further information on this family let us know.
