Which county(ies) were your Seaver family from in SW Virginia? And truly interesting information about the family funeral home business. Would love to learn more!
There is a W.C. (William C.) Seaver born abt 1824 VA living in Marion, Smyth Co, VA in the 1850-1880 censuses (these are the censuses that I looked at-there are probably more) and he is a cabinetmaker/furniture maker. Would this be your W.C. Seaver?
He was married to an Elizabeth A. (some trees show Pruner as her maiden name). They are the parents of Albert E., Mary F., William C. 'Willie', George W., Myrtle M. and Sallie E. Seaver.
Are any of these names familiar?
The aforementioned William C. Seaver (b. 1824) may be the son of John Seaver and Nancy Riggle. This John Seaver is the son of Henry (Heinrich) Seaver and Elizabeth (Unknown)and the grandson of 'Immigrant' Casper Seaver and Wife (unknown).
I have very little information on the family of John Seaver as my line is through his brother Jacob Seaver and wife Esther Croberger; however, Pat Seaver may have more as she has a truly amazing collection of Seaver information!
