Children of Lydia Sackett and J Lucius Seymour


J. Lucius Seymour, the only son [of Alva Seymour & ___ Cowles], was born in Turin, March 31, 1831. His early years were passed on the farm close by his present home. He was educated in the district schools of his town and at Lowville Academy, and followed for some years the occupation of teacher, going West in the spring of 1847 for that purpose, and teaching successfully in Iowa and Minnesota. In the spring of 1863 he returned home, and in the following winter went to Virginia, in the service of the Christian Commission to care for the sick and wounded soldiers. He afterward became engaged in farming, and has also been quite extensively interested in lumbering and real estate trannsaction in Minnesota. Mr. Seymour since the age of fourteen has been an active worker in the religious feld, following in this respect the footsteps of his worthy father. He is an elder in the First Presbyterian church of Turin, in which, and in the community at large, he is regarded as a conscientious christian and an honorable man. On the 5th of February, 1866, Mr. Seymour married Lydia Sackett, daughter of G. Sheldon and Elmina Sackett, of Turin, who was born January 11, 1839.
