Seaton Body is Being Brought to the City From Denver, Colo., For Burial

The Daily Telegram., August 26, 1911

The body of Archie C. Seaton will arrive here at 5:40 o’clock Saturday evening from Denver, Colo., where he died at the home of his son-in-law, C. C. King, Thursday. Mr. Seaton was a member of Adelphia Lodge of Odd Fellows here and that organization will have charge of the funeral services.

Mr. Seaton was widely known in Harrison County. For many years he was a prominent carriage maker here with his shop located on West Pike street, where he owned valuable property at the time of his death.

Several years ago Mr. Seaton went to Colorado to reside with his daughter and son-in-law, on account of failing health, but he visited here two or three times since then. He was a splendid citizen and the news of his death is a shock to his many friends here.

A third stroke of paralysis caused Mr. Seaton’s death. He was about 70 years of age.

Funeral arrangements have not been made.
