BIOGRAPHY
by David Fauss

John Seeman was born in July, 1881 to William Seeman and Sophia 'Sophie' Ebert in Joliet, Illinois. His parents were married on January 17, 1880. He was the oldest of their five children -- his siblings were Louis, Walter, Edward and Charlotte.
Around 1900, John'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 John'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 John's 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. John's step-father, Henry and his mother, Sophie, died in Lincoln and are buried in Wyuka Cemetery. John Seeman died in Lincoln on January 6, 1971, and is buried in Lincoln Memorial Park.
