Joseph Seabaugh Bollinger Co Mo Biography
  • Joseph Seabaugh, a substantial farmer of German Township, Bollinger Co., Mo., is a son of Henry and Matilda (Hahn) Seabaugh.

    Henry Seabaugh was born and reared in Cape Girardeau County.

    The subject of this sketch was born in 1848, and was reared at the home of his parents.

    He received a very poor education, as the Civil War began when he was about twelve years of age, after which the facilities for education were very poor.

    In 1870 he started a store on Whitewater River, near Molineaux Mills, and three years later was united in marriage with Miss Polly Ann Crites, a daughter of John and Elizabeth Crites, descendants of North Carolina Dutch.

    John Crites died in 1858 and his widow in 1867.

    Mrs. Seabaugh also received a limited education in the common schools.

    After his marriage Mr. Seabaugh began farming on his father's farm, but in 1878 purchased 108 acres in Cape Girardeau County, to which he removed.

    In 1884 he sold that farm and purchased 107 acres in Bollinger County, on which he now resides.

    He is a member of the Farmers' Alliance and the Wheeler Association.

    Being a Republican, he voted for the first time for Gen. Grant in 1874.

    To Mr. and Mrs. Seabaugh have been born six children, viz.: Matilda, Benjamin F., Monroe J., Burney R., Reva R.E. and Edward R. [p. 844-845]
