Re: Augustus Seeger & TX Navy Lt. Wm Seeger
Hi carolyn, According to my mother John was the one that died early and she thought it was in texas. The navy thing might answer the question we have, as we have a photo with 3 guys in uniform with a note on the back to Al. I am the grandson of Albert Lee Seeger born 4/13/1881, son of Augustus and Rosa (Rosena). My mother Lela is the sole remaining child at 83. Albert Lee married Mina Hensley of Colony and they farmed the home place at Knox city for a time untill my grandmother developed TB and doctors recommended a drier climate so they homesteaded in eastern Colorado approx 1910. After a couple bad years in the late 20's they sold out and headed for Ellensberg,Wash. They stopped in Nampa, Idaho and the rest is history. As my mom remembers her dad Albert and one of his brothers were somewhere here in the west when August died and they returned home. Mom and I have made 3 trips to Mo. to the Boltz reunion and done a lot of research as not much was known. Mom remembers visiting Kate and Arthur (Williams wife and son) as a childof about 6. We have met Lyman Seeger (deceased)and his sister Shirley Schaefer who lives in Quincy. According to Shirley, Lousia died having her 3rd set of twins and is buried at the county line cemetary. I have quite a lot of information if you would desire it more than able to list in this forum. My email is email@example.com Thanks so much for your reply.
