Seavers in the News -- Vernon H. Seaver Dies in 1969 in Cincinnati, Ohio

 Here is this week's edition of "Seavers in the News" - a weekly feature from the historical newspapers about persons with the surname Seaver that are interesting, useful, mysterious, fun, macabre, or add information to my family tree database.

This week's entry is from The Cincinnati [Ohio] Enquirer newspaper dated 6 Jul 1969, page 22:

The transcription of the article is:


"Vernon H., beloved husband of Henrietta Seaver; father of Mrs. James Vandermolen, Mt. Washington. Thursday, July 3, 1969; residence, Hillsboro, Ohio.  Services, Miller Funeral Home, Hillsboro, Ohio, Monday, July 7, at 11 A.M.  Visitation, Sunday at the funeral home, 1 to 9 P.M."

The source citation is:

"Seaver,The Cincinnati [Ohio] Enquirer, Sunday, 6 July 1969, page 22, column 7, Vernon H. Seaver obituary; Newspapers.com   (https://www.newspapers.com : accessed 28 November 2022).

This obituary identifies his name, day of death, his wife's name and his daughters' married names.  There is no birth date or location, no parent's names, no occupation, no affiliations, and no cause of death information.  

Vernon Hayes Seaver (1906-1969) was born 7 March 1906 in Cincinnati, Ohio, the son of Louis Ticknor and Henrietta (Hicks) Seaver.  He died 3 July q1969 in Hillsboro, Ohio.  He married Henrietta Fredericka Fischer (1911-1992) in December 1939 in Cincinnati.  They had one child:

*  unknown Seaver, married James M. Vandermolen.

Vernon Hayes Seaver is my eighth cousin twice removed.  Our common Seaver ancestor is my 9th great-grandfather Robert Seaver (1608-1683).

I did not know his spouse's name and still don't know his daughter's name after searching family trees and Ancestry records.
There are over 10,000 Seaver "stories" in my family tree - and this was one of them.   Life happens, accidentally and intentionally, and sometimes a person has a very short obituary.  I am glad that I can honor Vernon Hayes Seaver today.  

You never know when a descendant or relative will find this blog post and learn something about their ancestors or relatives, or will provide more information about them to me.
