Note: Hattie Louise Hildreth was born 28 November 1857 in Northborough, Worcester County, Massachusetts to Edward and Sophia (Newton) Hildreth (Massachusetts Vital Records 1841-1910, Volume 107, page 232).
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.
