Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Nov. 5, 1870
Carter County
Missouri, USA
Death: Oct. 10, 1943
St. Francois County
Missouri, USA

Margaret "Maggie" Elizabeth Seats Box (my great-grandmother) was born in MO, a daughter of Benjamin Seats (born in AR) and Sarah Elizabeth Dobson(?) Seats (born in MO) and had 6 known siblings: Nancy Jane, William Bennett, Mary Ellen, John Edward, Thomas Warren, and Martha A.

"Maggie" married Maston "Matthew" Wiley Box on March 2, 1889 in Butler Co., MO and had 5 children: William Jennings, Delia Ann, Maude Odessa, Bertha, and Thomas Glenster.

After Matthew's death in 1901, Maggie continued raising her children but never remarried. My father used to speak fondly about "Grandma Box" and visiting with her often.

A free copy of her death certificate can be obtained from the Missouri State Archives by visiting http://www.sos.mo.gov/archives/resources/deathcertificates/#searchdeat and requesting to view/copy Margaret E Boxx.

A million thank-yous to my loving aunt, Virgie Alcorn Evans, who helped me clear the Seats Cemetery several years ago to take these tombstone photos.
