Fearless Females- 1 March entry for Women’s History Month

I am looking for information about my great-great-great-grandmother, Synthia Arrena FOSTER SEELY. Synthia was born November 1824 in either South Carolina or Tennessee. She and her husband, Reverend Charles Harvey Seely, were married on 15 October 1845 and together they had 8 children. Reverend Seely was a Baptist preacher in Northwest Arkansas. Their children included 6 boys- Elijah, William, James, John, George, and Charles Jr.- and 2 girls- Mary and Elzira. Charles’ and Synthia’s daughter Mary was my great-great-grandmother. Synthia died 23 June 1884 in Benton County, Arkansas. She is buried at Mount Pleasant Cemetery near Gravette, Arkansas. Reverend Seely was the first preacher of Mount Pleasant Baptist Church which sits next to the cemetery.

This is my “fearless female” for the 1st of March.
