Ida Anna Seay
Ida Anna (Day) Seay was born in Tennessee on October 10, 1879 to John Henry Day and Susan Halstead. She was the fourth of six children. She had three brothers; John Henry, Charlie and James F. Day and two younger sisters; Lillie Lee Davis and Bessie Day.
On January 1, 1899 in Lake County, Tennessee, Ida Day was united in marriage to James Elbridge Seay. The newly married couple settled in Hickman County, Kentucky near James's parents. They quickly started a family together and had five children within the first six years of their marriage. Two sons; Charles Raymond and William "Fonzo" Seay and three daughters; Truman (Seay) Harris, Eunice Lee Seay and Betty (Seay) Tisdal. However, Charles and Eunice both died at childhood.
By 1910, Ida's family were living in Carlisle County, Kentucky. In the federal census for that year, Ida and her four children can be found in the same household. She's listed as the head and marked as still married. However, missing from the family is their father and Ida's husband, James Seay. He never returns to his wife and children in Kentucky. According to reports by family and reconfirmed by Ida's last three census records (1920,1930 & 1940), she was said to be widowed. Whether or not Ida actually believed her husband had died, she and her children seemed to act as such. They remained close together, living in proximity of their mother and Ida never remarried.
Ida's husband James did proceed her in death, but not until 1951. His grave can be found in Batesville, Mississippi. Buried beside his last wife, Estelle Seale and his other family. He had been living in the state ever since his departure from Kentucky around 1910.
Ida Ann Seay passed away on a Saturday on March 22, 1969 in La Center, Kentucky. She was 89 years of age.
