John Nichols Seely married Katherine Brinker in 1780 in Monroe County, Pennsylvania. John N. Seely applied for, and received, a pension for his services as an officer in the Revolutionary War. He applied for the pension on June 6, 1832, while a resident of Ralls County, Missouri, and when he was 83 years of age. On his pension application he stated that he enlisted early in December, 1776, in Captain Alexander Patterson's company in the 12th Pennsylvania Regiment. He was commissioned as Ensign on February 3, 1777. John was in the Battles of Ash Swamp and Short Hills, and served until August 20, 1777, when he resigned because of ill health. He also stated that he was in the Battles of Bunker Hill, Germantown, and Brandywine, and that his discharge was signed by General Washington. John and Katherine had 13 children: Susan, Mary, Jacob, George Washington, Elizabeth, Abraham, William, Sarah, Isaac, John N., Sally, Ann, Katherine, and Eleanor.

John and Katherine's burial location is unknown. They have been placed in Salem Cemetery since it is in Ralls County and because their son, Abraham Seely is buried there.
