He was married December 14, 1865, to Miss Letitia Shepherd and after her death he was again married to Miss Catherine Hayes, June 24, 1869. He became the father of three sons and five daughters. The second wife died five years ago last February; a daughter also died for years ago in May, but the other children have all survived. The daughters lived with him he was very much attached to them and his death is to them a very sore affliction. they are almost inconsolable. By trade Mr. Seaton was a brick mason and brick maker, and during the winter he dug coal. He was industrious man and was never idle when he had work to do. He was a member of the church for many years, and also a well informed man, able to discuss intelligently any question. He had warm attachment for all his friends. He was an ardent democrat and always spoke his convictions and gave reasons for the faith within him.
