In the McPherson County History book It states the town was laid out August 24, 1892. The commissioners sold to John L. SSEELEY in February 1906. Seeley and sons built the sod house (I believer it is still standing in Tryon) The John L. SEELEY esteate was probated on May 4, 1911. The heirs were Charles, Peter, William, George and a granddaughter (daugther of a deceased daughter). Peter N. SEELEY bought the house in November 1911 and ran a shoe repair shop in it. Peter and wife sold to Ira CUMPSTON October 13, 1920.
