Seavers in the News - Alice Seaver Dies in 1925

Here is another edition of "Seavers in the News."

This newspaper death notice was published in the Oakland [CA] Tribune newspaper dated 30 August 1925, page 8-T, Column 1:

The transcription of this death notice is:

"SEAVER -- In Modesto, California, August 28, 1925, Alice, widow of the late Charles Seaver, mother of Frank and Charles H. Seaver and Mrs. Charles McMahon, a native of Massachusetts, aged 78 years, 6 months, 19 days.

"Funeral services Monday, August 31, 1925, at 1 o'clock p.m. at the parlors of the James Taylor Co., northeast corner of Fifteenth and Jefferson streets, Oakland, California, to which friends are invited."

The source citation for this death notice is:

"SEAVER," The Oakland [Calif.] Tribune, 30 August 1925, page 9-T, column 1, Alice Seaver death notice; indexed database and digital images, Ancestry.com (http://www.ancestry.com : accessed 28 February 2017).

Alice (Honey) Seaver (1847-1925) was born in Lowell, Massachusetts to Calvin and Laura (Gaffield) Honey, and married Charles Henry Seaver (1838-1918) on 13 August 1864 in Tuolumne County, California.  They had four children:  Laura Elizabeth (Seaver) Sullivan (1865-1898); Franklin Chester Seaver (1866-1942); Marian B. "Minnie" (Seaver) McMahon (1874-1935); and Charles Henry Seaver (1875-1947).

I wondered how accurate the age at death was, so I put the death date and the age at death in the RootsMagic date calculator and hit Enter and found:

Yep, the age at death matches what I had in my database, which was unsourced.  Now I have a source for the birth date and the death date.
