Seavers in the News --Death Notice of Milton S. Seaver (1923-1978) of Park Forest, Illinois

 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 Boston [Mass.] Globe newspaper dated Wednesday, 5 April 1978, page 62, Column 6:

The transcription of the article is:

"SEAVER -- Milton S.  Beloved husband of the late Ethel (Garbel).  Devoted son of the late Jon and Delia Silverstein.  Loving father of Barbara, Michael (Beverly), and Debra (Charles) Trefz and Lisa.  Dear brother of Rose Maiman.  Services Wednesday, April 5, 1978, at 11 a.m. at Congregation Beth Shalom, 1 Dogwood Park, Forest, Ill.  In lieu of flowers Memorials to the Milton & Ethel Seaver Fund would be apprecaited, care of Congregation Beth Shalom of Park Forest."

The source citation is:

"Milton S. Seaver," The Boston [ Mass.] Globe newspaper, Wednesday, 5 April 1978, page 62, column 6, Milton S. Seaver death notice; imaged,   Newspapers.com   (https://www.newspapers.com : accessed 6 May 2024).

This death notice provides the decedent's name, wife's name, parents' names, children names, siblings name, services, but not his death date and place, residence, age, birth date and place, marriage information, work and  associations.

Milton Sydney Silverstein (1923-1978) was born 23 March 1923 in Lynn, Massachusetts, the son of John and Delia (Siegel) Silverstein.  Milton changed his surname after 1950 to Seaver.  He died 1 April 1978, probably in Cook County, Illinois.  Milton S. Silverstein married Ethel Helen Garbel (1924-1978) on 3 April 1945 in Cook County, Illinois.  

I am not related to Milton Sydney Silverstein Seaver because he was born a Silverstein and not a Seaver.  

There are over 10,000 Seaver "stories" in my family tree - and this is one of them.   Life happens, accidentally and intentionally, and sometimes a person's death notice names al ot of family members but notm uch else.  I am glad that I can honor Milton Sydney Silverstein  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.
