    • «b»George Seaman, Udall Pioneer Dies Yesterday
      «/b»Funeral Services for Early Day Pioneer of Udall Comunity to Be Held in Udall Friday at 2 P.M.

      George L. Seaman, 71-rear-otd retired farmer and stockman of northwest Cowley County, died early Wednesday at his home in Udall. He had been in declining health since being injured in an automobile accident several months ago.
      He was born in Dent County, Missouri, October 7, 1867.
      Mr. Seaman has lived in and near Udall since 1873, when as a child of five, he had come with his parents, Mr. and Mrs. William E. Seaman, from their former home in Dent County, Missouri. The family preempted a quarter section in Maple Township, three miles north of where the town of Udall was later established, on the building of the Santa Fe railway from Wichita to Winfield in 1879.
      With the development of the country Mr. Seaman became all extensive land owner in Cowley and Sumner counties and for many years was a leading livestock breeder. On retirement from the farm in 1915 he moved into Udall and was there identified with various business interests and acquired considerable business property.

      Coming from a typical pioneer family, Mr. Seaman had long been interested in preservation of the memories of those families who came into and settled this section of Kansas.

      For a number of years he was an officer in the Quad-County Old Settlers Association of Mulvane, and thousands of persons will remember him as the driver of the four white oxen in the pioneer pageants which are yearly a feature of the Mulvane Old Settlers reunion. Also Mr. Seaman has been in demand for other pioneer events and had participated in the Cowley Country fair in Wichita, and at fairs and other numerous events.
      His wife was Adah Shull, of another of the pioneer families of the Mulvane- Udall section. She preceded her husband in death only last October 14.
      Mr. Seaman is survived by three children, Mrs. Sadie Storey, Mulvane; Mrs. Georgia Lyman, Ulysses. Kansas; and William Seaman, Udall, and by 11 grandchildren and three great grand children: four brothers, Arthur, of Udall, Clarence and Jake of Winfield and Wallace of Wichita, and a half sister in Corydon, Iowa.

      Funeral services will be held in the Udall M. E. Church at 2 P.M. Friday, conducted by the Rev. Oscar Magnusson, pastor of the Udall Congregational church. The G. C. Hooton Mortuary of Mulvane has charge of arrangements. Interment will be in the Littleton cemetery.
