I came across the following from the GenWeb page for Herkimer County-

12/29/97  From Steven Seeber ([log in to unmask]), whose ancestors followed
their California dream:

                                           Daniel Seeber, born Canajoharie
area 3-29-1817;
                                             died 11-23-1896 Sonora, Ca.
                                             Source: Tuolumne County Ca.

                                             Wife: Myra (Benton) Seeber,
born: 1-25-1821 at
                                             Ames, N.Y; died 11-7-1904 at
Oakdale, Ca.
                                             Source: local newspaper

                                             Son: Benton Seeber, born 1842
N.Y.; died
                                             5-15-1912 at Quartz, Ca.
                                             Source: Tuolumne County records

                                             Son: Byron Seeber, born 1846
at Theresa, Jefferson
                                             Co. N.Y.; died 1928 Oakdale, CA
                                             Source: Family Bible

                                         Byron Seeber, photo approx. 1915 -
1925. Son of
                                             Daniel and Myra Seeber,
originally from the
                                             Canajoharie area. The family
migrated to Sonora, CA
                                             in 1855 from Watertown, NY.

At another page -
                                    ** D. 5-15-1812
                                                     104yr 2mo
                                                                      Wf. Fanny

Another lists a Henry Seeber as a private who fought at Oriskany.

Sometimes these genealogy pages can help pinpoint some one. The home page
is at -

Didin't find anything else on Henry but sounds like the AR Henry Seeber is
your man. Maybe Steven Seeber (e-mail address above) can shed further
light. Sounds like some veterans' or other DAR-type group may be the prime
suspects for the marker. Good luck.
