The document this week is the Final Account filed by the administrator of the estate of my great-grandmother, Hattie L. (Hildreth) Seaver (1857-1920), who died 29 November 1920 in Leominster, Worcester County, Massachusetts. Hattie's husband, Frank Walton Seaver, died after she did on 27 November 1922. However, Hattie's mother, Sophia (Newton) Hildreth, died after both of them on 29 August 1923. The estate of Sophia (Newton) Hildreth included the property in Leominster that she and Hattie inherited from Edward Hildreth (1831-1899), their husband and father, respectively.
