8.  Email from Kelly Griffith, including this excerpt:
Both Louisa and Fred are buried in the Galien Township Cemetery.  It shows that Louisa was born 1861 and died 1911.  (A lot of them have just the year for the date).  Fred was born 1861 and died 1940.  I looked for Theresa, Fred's second wife, but she's not listed as being in the cemetery... or at least not with the last name of Seyfred. 

Also buried in that cemetery are their children: 
John A., born May 29, 1888 and died July 23, 1950 
John's wife, Jennie C., born August 4, 1895, and died August 26, 1962. She is listed as the daughter of William and Emma (Barkhouse) Luther. 

George E., born 1891, and died February 1968 
It lists a Mrs. George Seyfred....no birth date, but a death year of 1957. 

William P., born 1893, and died 1962. It says he was a Veteran.

Albert G., born August 2, 1899, and died February 25, 1947 
Albert's wife, Gladys was born May 17, 1898 and died August 29, 1975. She was born in Baroda, MI, the daughter of Hubert and Lillian (Widdis) Marrs. 

Other Seyfred's buried there are: 

Bertha, born 1899 and died 1957 

Everett L., born 1918 and died October 18, 1982 
Everett's wife, Virginia born April 13, 1926 and died 1963. She was born in Michigan City, IN, the daughter of Leonard and Mary (Hyska) Schilla. 

I'm guessing that George's wife could be Bertha. From newspaper articles, I get that Everett was George's son and that he also had a sister Betty Jean and a sister Leona.
