Captain Seaton made arrangements for his wife's funeral and burial. He had the following notice placed in the local newspaper, and it read:

"The first burial at Crown Hill Cemetery will take place today (June 2nd, 1864). The Husband of the deceased is a gentleman of high standing, and he is a stranger to this city. We hope his invitation to the public to join in the funeral exercises will be accepted by a goodly number"
