Father: Adam Seaver (1811-1889)
Mother: Nancy Hooker (1800-1865)

Married: Emily Powers (1846-1921), 16 March 1865. Emily is buried in Riverside Cemetery, Rockford, Floyd Co., IA

Children: Charles Henry (1866-1924), Frank Emery (1868-1936), Harriet E. (1870-1871), Ralph S. (1872-1931), Adeline O. (1876-1944), Myrtia (1879-1972), Flora (1881-1963).

Henry was a farmer. He went west with his father and mother and the rest of the family, traveling to Ohio, Illinois, and finally Floyd Co. Iowa. Henry was the second son and second child of six. Two of his brothers and a sister settled in Colorado, the rest remained in Iowa.

Henry, Emily, and all the children but Adeline were in Colorado because son Ralph had made a major gold strike at Cripple Creek and everyone went out to help in the business. Ralph lost his money, the family went back to Iowa, but Henry had died and was buried in Colorado. When his wife Emily died, the family could neither afford to ship her body to Colorado, or have Henry shipped home, so
Emily was buried in Iowa. Husband and wife are a great distance apart.
