Biography of Charles Seaward
Howard County, IN Biographies





CHARLES SEAWARD was born near West Carlisle, Ohio, in 1820, and is the son of Ebenezer and Eleanor Seaward. Our subject received about fourteen months' schooling, and for some time worked on a farm during the day and made and mended shoes at night. He was married, in 1840, to Miss Ann P. Taylor, a native of Smithfield, Ohio, and by her became the father of seven children - William, Benjamin, Melvin, Melissa, Shirley, Maria and Charles. October 17, 1851, he came to the little village of Russiaville and started a shoe shop, which he successfully conducted about eighteen months. In the meanwhile he bought eighty acres of his present farm southwest of Alto, to which he moved in 1853, and to which he has since added 108 acres, making it one of the best grain farms in the township. In politics, Mr. Seaward was first a Whig, then a Free Soiler, and is now a Republican. Mr. Seaward sent three of his sons to the front during the late war, losing Benjamin, who was killed at the siege of Richmond; he has always taken an interest in public improvements, and has been a member of both the Methodist Episcopal and Seventh Day Adventist Churches.
