"My brother Seth was a druggist. He enlisted the first year of the Civil War and re-enlisted, remaining until the war was ended. He witnessed the celebrated fight between the Monitor and Merrimac. A few days after that event he saw Lincoln, who had come to the battle front on a tour of inspection. Before the close of the war, Seth was made a hospital steward. He was married during the war (1864 Clark Co Oh,) his wife living with him at the hospital for a time. After his return from the army, he started a drug store for himself, and was prosperous in that; but his eyesight became poor, and he sold out and took his family to Kansas, there purchasing a farm. He recovered from the eye trouble, but he was not strong enough to farm, so he gave the farm to his sons, and went to town to live. He was made a lay preacher in the Methodist Church. He died in 1918. His wife, whom I had known from childhood, was Mary Elizabeth Hisey, a niece of "Uncle Hale" Winchester. She died in Kansas City in1923."
