Richard Bayley Seton, USN, was the third of five children born to the American saint Elizabeth Bayley Seton and her husband William Magee Seton. Only five years old at the time of his father's death, he was the younger of the couple's two sons, both of whom pursued naval careers after graduating from college in Maryland. Richard, who joined the US Navy in 1822, was assigned to the USS Oswego, and died at sea off the coast of Liberia the following year. He was 23 years old at the time of his death. In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by his sisters Anna Maria and Rebecca. He was survived by his siblings William and Catherine. William Seton, then serving as a naval lieutenant, rose to the rank of captain before his death 45 years later. Catherine, a nun, died in 1891 at the age of 90.
