THE TILLER AND TOILER, 14 November 1929
Death of Mrs. Wm. Seeman
Resident of Ash Valley Community
Succumber to Heart Affection
Sunday Evening

The people of Larned and nearby communities were greatly grieved and shocked to hear of the sudden death of Mrs. Will Seeman at her home near Ash Valley Sunday evening at 10 o’clock.

Mrs. Seeman had suffered from angina pectoris for ten or twelve years but a serious attack Sunday was the cause of her death.

Mrs. Seeman was well known and highly respected here, and her many friends extend heartfelt sympathy to the bereaved family.

Mrs. Seeman was born in Coal City, Illinois, January 29, 1877, and died November 10, 1929 at the age of 52 years.

Her maiden name was Mary E. Rogers. While she was still a baby her parents moved to Starkville, Colorado. There, at about two years of age, she was captured by the Indians and held among them for three days and nights. Her rescuer was John Colt, a soldier who cared for her wrapped in his coat for several days until he could return her to her parents.

Mary’s parents died when she was five years old and she was reared in Larned by Mr. and Mrs. Charles Prudhom.

December 24, 1898 she was married to William J. Seeman and to this union four children were born, one of whom, Wilfred, preceded her in death.

She leaves beside her husband, two sons, Silvey and Elmer, and one daughter, Pearl, all of Larned. There are also five sisters who survive her: Mrs. Lottie Kutz, Altoona, Pa., Mrs. Anna Coble, Pittsburgh, Pa., Mrs. Naomi Weber, Kansas City, Mo., Mrs. Sarah Smith, Rozel, Kansas, Mrs. Leah Hold, Alva, Oklahoma, and one half sister, Mrs. Catherine Harris, of Chicago, Ill.
Funeral services are to be held this afternoon at 2:30, conducted by Rev. C. A. Kitch, of Great Bend. Interment will be in the Larned cemetery.
