Nellie Seed born 6 Sep 1862, daughter of Hugh Seed and Sabilla Ryan.

Miss Seed was for years our Postmistress at this place, and was superseded a week ago by J.H. Roberts. Rumors are conflicting regarding the fatal dose, some of her friends claiming that she had dropped hints that would lead them suppose it was taken with suicidal intent, while others maintain that it was taken to ease the terrible pain occasioned by an aching tooth. Her mother, who has been dangerously ill for some time, is almost wild over the sad and distressing occurrence.

The funeral will take place tomorrow. [February 11, 1882, Daily Inter Ocean (Chicago, IL.
