Seth K. Shetterly, Utica, Michigan, pioneer, lawyer, and politician, was born October 15, 1820 in Union County, Pennsylvania. His parents came to Michigan in August 1832, and he obtained his elementary education in the district schools. In 1840, his father moved to Ann Arbor, and Seth entered the law office of Miles, Ramsdett, and Wilson. He was admitted to the bar in 1843, and in June 1844 opened a law office at Utica. He was married in 1843 to Harriet H. Wright who died in 1849. He was married again in 1853 to Amelia Sterns who died in 1858. In 1859, he married Clara A.
