I have an aunt, my fathers sister Gertrude F. SEABER living in Westernport, Md. My grandfather Harry William SEABER was married to Eunice Gertrude FOYE of Western Md. My Father Virgil M. SEABER, Sr., was married to Mildred Jane SHAW of Western Md. Besides his sister my father had two brothers: Roylin P. SEABER & Jerold SEABER, together the owned and opperated The SEABER Art and Decorating Co. officed in Westernport, Md.
My grandfather Harry William SEABER had two brothers: William SEABER of Westernport, Md and Fred SEABER of Westernport, Md., then moved to Baltimore, Md. Harry William Seaber was a business man well known all over Western Maryland, WV., and Penna.
My aunt Gertrude F. SEABER owned Keyser Photo Studio, Keyser, WV. I have a second cousin Helen SEABER of Westernport, Md., that was married to William (Bill) Seaber, Jr., son of William Seaber on Walnut Street, Westernport, Md.
I consider Westernport, Maryland my home, Hammond Street Elem., School and Bruce High my Schools before college in Greenville, SC., Franklin Springs, Ga., Jersey City, NJ, Univ. of Mo., And St. Paul School of Theology, Kansas City, Missouri. After pastoring in the states, then in home Missions and Foreign Assignment of Thw Wing Wong Church, School and College, I pastored The College Park Church, College Park, Md, Abiding Peace Temple and Faith UMC, Kennett, Missouri. Following the death of my wife: Sylvia L (Hewitt) SEABER of Florence, SC., 2/9/86 I was assigned the pastorate of The National Church, Washington, DC (Oxon Hill, Md. area). Retired for a time and now pastoring Centenary/Central UMC, Marion District, Marion County, South Carolina.
Any help you can give me on the Seaber family and how they arrived to America from Germany, as I understand there were three brothers that came to America, two made their home in Penna., Western Maryland area and the other one went west (maybe in the Gold-Rush and was never heard of again). Thank you for any help you can supply to help me continue my research. Blessings, Rev. Virgil M. Seaber, Jr. 843-667-6907
