In the November 2007 SGS Newsletter we published the inventory of the estate of immigrant Obadiah Seeley, SGS#4. Below is the inventory of the estate of his oldest son, Obadiah Seeley, SGS #17. The latter was born about 1648/49 in Stamford, Fairfield County, Conn. and he married Esther Stevens (b about 1648/9) in 1669, the daughter of Thomas and Ann Stevens of Stamford. Obadiah died on July 25, 1679/80 in Stamford, Fairfield Conn.
