Biography

Hattie Louise Hildreth was born 28 November 1857 in Northborough, Worcester County, Massachusetts, the daughter of Edward Hildreth, a comb manufacturer, and his wife Sophia (Newton).[1]

Edward, 28, his wife Sophia Hildreth, 24, and their daughter Hattie L., 2, lived in Northborough in 1860. Edward works as a comb maker. All are shown as being born in Massachusetts.[2]

Although the family still lived in Northborough in 1865,[3], they had moved to Leominster, Worcester, Massachusetts by 1870, when Hattie L. Hildreth lived there with her parents, Edward and Sophia Hildreth.[4]

Frank Walton Seaver and Hattie Louisa Hildreth were married at Keene, Cheshire, New Hampshire, United States, on 14 DEC 1874. The Rev. George W. Brown, Rector of St. James Church, Keene performed the ceremony.[5][6][7] (Text: in Leominster town list: Frank W. Seaver, age 22, resident of Leominster, ironworker, parents Isaac and Lucretia Seaver.) According to US Census and other records, Frank and Hattie had at least the following children born at Leominster:

By 1880, Frank and Hattie Seaver have had their first child. They lived in Leominster, and Frank still worked in the comb shop.[11]

In 1900, Frank and Hattie lived in a house they rented at 149 Lancaster Street in Leominster. They have been married for 26 years, and Hattie has had 7 children, but only 2 of them are still alive. Frank is now working as a teamster. Hattie's mother, Sophia "Haldreth," is living with the family.[12]

In 1910, Frank W., Hattie L., and Harry C. Seaver lived with Sophia Hildreth in a home she owned on Lancaster Street in Leominster.[13]

In 1920, Hattie and her family still lived in the same house in Leominster. Frank works as a combmaker, and Harry is the assistant superintendent of a horn? shop. Sophia Hildreth is also living with them.[14]

Hattie died of died of stomach cancer on 29 Nov 1920 at Leominster, Worcester, Massachusetts, United States,[15][16] and is buried in Evergreen Cemetery in Leominster, Massachusetts, with her husband.[17] You can see a picture of her tomb at FindAGrave.

Estate

Hattie L. Seaver died intestate before her mother and her husband, and her estate was probated simultaneously with that of her husband (Worcester County (MA) Probate Records, Probate Packet B-81,101, accessed at Worcester County Court House, Worcester, Massachusetts). J. Ward Healey petitioned the court to be named administrator of her estate on 6 September 1923. The heirs included husband Frank W. Seaver (who has since died), son Frederick W. Seaver and son Harry C. Seaver, both of Leominster.
An inventory was taken by J. Ward Healey on 10 September 1923 and found $33.10 in personal estate and $2,825 in real estate. The latter was the two family dwelling house at 149 Lancaster Street in Leominster, including a barn and 10,890 square feet of land. Bond of $4,000 was posted on 7 September 1923 by J. Ward Healey, Frederick W. Seaver and Frank C. Seaver.
The real estate was sold on 31 October 1923 for $6,000. The land is described as "land owned by the heirs of Edward Hildreth, Leominster, Mass." by Wm. P. Ray, C.E. It was on the southwesterly side of Lancaster Street, containing 19,317 square feet of land.
The final account of the estate of Hattie L. Seaver was submitted by J. Ward Healey on 10 December 1923, and approved by the court on 8 September 1924. The estate of $6,546.99 was distributed:
  • To Harry C. Seaver, $2,700 in cash as his partial distributive share, including a $1,600 payment to Merchants National Bank which was borrowed by him.
  • To Frederick W. Seaver, $2,700 in cash as his partial distributive share.
  • The furniture was divided by Harry C. and Frederick W. Seaver.
$150 To the City of Leominster for perpetual care of the cemetery lots of Edward Hildreth and Frank W. Seaver.
$55 to Leominster Granite and Marble Works for gravestones, and $294 to Chas. H. Richardson, undertakers.
The balance went to the administrator for taxes, repairs on the house, insurance, and probate costs.
