SEAVER, Christopher ca. 1843 MA

Looking for information concerning Christopher Seaver, listed in 1880 Census as living at 20 Franklin St., Boston. Possible birth date approx. 1845. Also according to Census, married to Mary C. (born in Ireland), with cildren William J. (18 years old), Christopher H. (14 years old), Henry M (9 years old), and Alber J. (3 years old).

Also, other research shows that a C.H. Seaver and a Mary White had four children, William James (b. 1862), Henry Morton (b. 1864), Christopher Hammond (b. 1866), and Henry Seaver (b. 1870). This is most likely the Christopher Seaver listed in the 1880 Census. Their address is listed as Snowhill Street (1862-1866), and Margaret Street (1870).

Family legend holds that a Seaver in the mid-19th century married a Catholic girl, changed religions, and was disowned by the family. It is believed that the couple was C.H. Seaver and Mary White.

Other (minimal) research indicates that a Christopher Seavers married a Mary White in 1861. Christopher's parents showed as a Hammond and a Hannah.

Some information has come to light that a Hammond Seaver (b. 1788) married Amelia Adams in 1818, and may be the father of Hammond Seaver, who married Hannah.

Lastly, the Seaver headstone in a large Catholic cemetery in Boston (forgive me, I can't remember the name offhand) give the following names:

C.H. Seaver (1843-1918)
Mary C Seaver (1839-1903)
Ann White (1803-1885)
Henry M Seaver (1864-1868)
John F Seaver (1869-1873)
Alice L Seaver (1873-1875)
Albert Seaver (1873-1875)
Julia F Seaver (d. 1935) - married to Christopher Hammond Seaver
Albert E Seaver (d. 1949) - son of Christopher Hammond Seaver and Julia Seaver
John W Seaver (d. 1978) - brother to Albert
Mary A Sullivan (d. 1978) - brother to Albert

Can anyone tie in this lost branch of the Seaver family?

Any information would be gratefully accepted.

Thank you,
