Seth's military service grave stone has the incorrect date of death. Seth died on November 1, 1921. His Certificate of Death, Seattle, King County, Washington, Record No. 2340, shows the Date of Death as Nov. 1, 1921. The Medical Certificate states that the doctor last saw him alive on Nov., 1, 1921. The Date of Burial is Nov. 2, 1921. The Certificate was filed on Dec 14,1921. The 1920 census of Machias, Snohomish County, Washington, family #018, shows Seth W. Covell, age 79, born in NY, living with Emma L. Covell, his sister, age 70, born in NY.
