I saw your message about Patrick Seery on Roots Web Board. My Great Grandfather was Natnaniel Seery who was born in Ireland in 1847 married Ann Kelly in 1870 in Phila. PA. They had several childern and some of the god-parents names included Patrick Seery in 1878, Cathern Seery in 1871 and Ann Seery in 1873.It seems that they were all related possibly siblings. Could there be any connection with your Seerys in Phila.
