William Segee (1767-1840), brother of Captain James Segee, lived on and owned what was formerly the Edward Simonds [or Symonds] farm near the present site of the Agricultural Research Station in Lincoln. He conducted quite a large business in pine timber and ship-building, and the place was called Segee’s Bluff.

His death is recorded in the Sentinel and Advertiser, published every Saturday by Edward Ward, Office Phoenix or Tank House, Fredericton, NB:

At his residence, on the 4th inst., Mr. William Segee, age 73 years deeply lamented by a large circle of friends. Mr. Segee was one of the United Empire Loyalists who came here with his father, Jacob Segee, in 1783, and from that period until the day of his death sustained an unblemished character which endeared him to all who knew him.
