This is my great great grandfather:

"Lazarus Seymour, aged 86 years, died at 11:30 o'clock Saturday night at his home across Back Bay, after a lingering illness of six months. The passing of Mr. Seymour removes another landmark from south Mississippi. He was born at Belle Fountain (now known as Fountainbleu), Jackson county, Miss., on April 18, 1816. At that place he was engaged in stock raising and farming. He was married to Miss Nancy Seaman, who died June 4, 1853. By this union there were four children - Pliny, Edward, Edmund and Elizabeth. At the age of 26 Mr. Seymour removed to Harrison county, and engaged in the butcher business. For twenty-two years he conducted a meat market establishment in Biloxi. His second wife was Miss Elizabeth Fayard. By this union there were the following children: Moses, Louis, Peter and Adolph Seymour, Mrs. Josephine Quave, Mrs. Rosa Boney, Misses Ida, Cecile and Seline Seymour. Mr. Seymour is survived by his wife, one brother, Sancere (St. Cyr) Seymour, a resident of Jackson county; one sister, Mrs. Victoria Fayard, who lives in Biloxi, and the following children, Edward, Edmund, Elizabeth, Moses, Louis, Josaphine, Rosa, Ida and Cecile. The deceased was a Mason, and a devout member of the Catholic church. The funeral took place yesterday afternoon at 2 o'clock from the Catholic church across the bay, Rev. Father Henry conducting the services. The casket was completely hidden beneath the beautiful flowers, all testimonials of the love and esteem in which the mourned gentleman was held by everyone. The cortege was one of extended length. When the hearse reached the south end of the bridge on its way to the Biloxi cemetery, where interment was made, the last carriage was at the toll gate. At the grave a large concourse of friends had gathered to pay their last respects to an old and honored citizen. The remains were laid to rest in the family vault. The pallbearers were John Lucas, William Young, Peter Lepre, Frank Perez, John Moran, Tierre Connet. The family, through The Herald, wish to publicaly thank Dr. W. T. Bolton and wife for their kindness during the long illness of Mr. Seymour. To the many others who ministered to the deceased the surviving members of the family extend grateful thanks."
