I have many Charles Seaver names and 4 Jesse Seaver names.
It is possible that they are distant cousins.

I'm not sure of the relationship but i do know the men in the photos dated 1907 appear to be the same age. Those two photos look like old Grad. photos from school.
Also the two Jesse Seaver photos appear to be the same man . The oldest of the Seaver photos is the Rosa Seaver photo i'd date it about 1880-1900. I'm guessing she is an older sibling or possible mother.

These photos were found with the Seaver photos:
Frank Giltner
Charlie Foster who married Annie Kelley
Henry Straughn
Susan Montgomery-Straughn

I'm guessing they all belong together but i'm not sure.

Hope this helps!

Interesting, Don.

Jesse Montgomery Seaver was the author of "The Seaver Genealogy" typescript that can be found in some libraries, including the Family History Library in SLC on microfiche. He compiled this work based on research done during his travels and through correspondence ith Seaver families. For the time, he did a decent job.

He was born in Bethlehem, Indiana, so it is probably that these photos are from his family. The Seaver genealogy says his father was George Washington Seaver (1844-???) and he married (1) Sarah Elizabeth Fix in 1868 and (2) Rose Ella Foster in 1880. He and Sarah had children Mary, Fannie and Maud, and with Rose he had Oliver, Clara, Charles C., Arthur Francis, Roy James, George, Jesse, Leslie Foster, Sylvia, Ruth Alice, Dewey and Paul Revere Seaver. 15 kids...

Unfortunately, Jesse never could positively connect his line to another known Seaver line. Jesse wrote many books of poor quality, and was apparently sued for defrauding people with his poorly written genealogy books.

Hello Randy,

Thanks for the info :)
I'd say that is the family here in these photos.
If anyone wants them just let me know.

I just saw your post from 2004 as I am looking for Charlie Seaver's sisters (Mae and Sadie). Charlie Harvey Seaver was my great-great grandfather. He was the son of Joseph Seaver and Matilda or Martha Rush Frey (of the Dr. Benjamin Rush family). He was born I think in Illinois and raised his children (all daughters)in Missouri and Oklahoma. Don't know if you have any writing on the back of the photo but the timing would be right. His 1st daughter born in 1898ish. I'd like to see the photo to see if it's him- I'd recognize him from the photos i have from my great-grandma.
Thanks, Leslie
