BIOGRAPHY
by David Fauss

Walter Seeman was born on August 23, 1884 to William Seeman and Sophia 'Sophie' Ebert in Joliet, Illinois. His parents were married on January 17, 1880. He was the third oldest of their five children -- his siblings were John, Louis, Edward and Charlotte.
Around 1900, Walter's father, William, died. His mother then met a neighbor, Heinrich 'Henry' Gohde, who had five children (Henry, Charles, Albert, Harold and Lydia) from his marriage with Sophia Wieting, who had also recently died. John's mother married Henry Gohde on September 26, 1902, and they moved to Fairmont, Minnesota, where Walter's half-brother, George Gohde was born in 1903. They then moved back to Joliet, where half-brother Robert Gohde was born in 1905, then they moved to Arriba, Colorado, where his half-sister, Elizabeth 'Betty' was born in 1909.
Farming was difficult in arid eastern Colorado and they soon moved to Lincoln, Nebraska, settled there and raised all of their children there. Walter's step-father, Henry and his mother, Sophie, died in Lincoln and are buried in Wyuka Cemetery. Walter Seeman died in Lincoln on January 10, 1965, and is buried in Lincoln Memorial Park.
