Seaver family notes

I’ve had a good afternoon transcribing the notes of my first cousin twice removed, Henry Morse Seaver, about his family. This is also a bit of an experiment as I have published them as pages on this WordPress site, so we’ll see how that works long term.

Here are Henry’s notes on his father and the rest of the family. He had three siblings, and wrote separate notes on each: a fair bit on his older brother Walter, who moved to California, and short and sad notes on his younger siblings, sister Alice and brother Philip.

All very interesting slice-of-life stuff for me. Henry has one living grandson, and Walter has many living descendants – his second oldest grandchild was the actress Sally Seaver.

I’m pretty sure this is the four Seaver kids, maybe taken around 1887 with the two older boys sitting down; so left to right that would be Philip (born 1881), Henry (born 1873), Alice (born 1878) and Walter (born 1870).
