We may have made a connection on Christopher Seaver. My Grandfather was D.W. Seaver, (listed in the SSDI and on his gravestone as Wiley Dewolf Seaver, he apparently preferred Dewolf Wiley Seaver). He was born in in either 1886 or 1889 -- again the ambiguity may be personal in nature. The SSDI lists his bith as 1886, but on his SSN application he states 1889, My feeling on this matter is that he trimmed a few years off in order to make a full 20 year retirement program. On his SSN application he lists Christopher Seaver as his father and Fannie Susan Camp as his mother. They resided in Hawkins Co., Surgoineville, Tennessee.

Wiley Dewolf, Jr., (aka D.W., Jr.)
Kenneth Christoper Seaver, (my father)
Gladys Seaver.

We have some evidence that the family immigrated from VA.
