Mary Myrtle Sewell

F, b. October 1887, d. 29 August 1957
     Mary Myrtle Sewell was born in October 1887 at Missouri; Mary lost one of her parents when she was an infant, and there are conflicting versions of her biological parents in online genealogies including her memorial. For certain, she was raised from infancy by John L. and Mary Francis (Pope) Sewell. John was first married to Martha G. Nulty and she passed in 1885, according to online genealogies, exact date not known. Mary F. Pope was first married to James Scantlin in 1876 and he died in 1887, again according only to online genealogies. Mary (Pope) Scantlin and John L. Sewell were married 21 AUG 1887 in Gasconade County, Missouri, per Missouri Marriage Records, 1805-2002 ( Mary Myrtle Sewell is first found in the censuses on the June 1900 census of Center Township, Pratt County, Kansas, page 4A, in the John and Mary Sewell family. She was listed as age 12 with a birth date of OCT 1887.

The best evidence of the correct biological parents of Mary seems to be the newspaper obituary for Mary (Pope, Scantlin) Sewell, as follows:

Pratt Daily Tribune, Pratt, Kansas; Saturday, 26 FEB 1921, Page 4 (

Mary Francis Pope was born in Gasconade County, Missouri, on September 11, 1858; and died at her home in Pratt, Kansas at 6:30 a. m. on February 23, 1921.

When eighteen years of age she was united in marriage to James Scantlin near Bland, Missouri. To this union two children were born, one of whom survives her, J. D. Scantlin of Tracy, Minnesota. Mr. Scantlin lived but a few years and in 1888 she was united in marriage with John L. Sewell at Bland, Missouri. To this union four sons were born, all of whom, together with the husband, survive her. The sons are George D. Sewell of Omaha, Nebraska; Roll S. Sewell of Pratt; Boley D. Sewell of Iowa, and Clarence E. Sewell of Kansas City, Missouri. Besides these she leaves to mourn her loss, a step-daughter, Mrs. Claude Davault of this city, whom she has reared from infancy. Mrs. Sewell also leaves five brothers, none of whom are residents of this city.

Mrs. Sewell joined the. Baptist church when she was but eighteen years of age and was a member of the First Baptist Church of Pratt.

Mr. and Mrs. Sewell came to Kansas in 1899 and settled in Pratt county. They lived on a farm south of town for three years and the remainder of this time they have lived at their present residence at 609 South Oak Street.

Mrs. Sewell has been an invalid for a number of years but has borne her ill health with a jovial spirit which has made for her a large circle of friends.

Therefore I am identifying Mary Myrtle Sewell's parents as John Lundsford and Martha G. (Nulty) Sewell. DLB 2023.1

She lived on 7 April 1900 at Center Twp., Pratt Co., KS, In the John L. and Mary F. (Pope) Sewell family, birth date OCT 1887, age 12, birth location Missouri for herself and her parents.1

She married Claude Samuel DaVault, son of Valentine Franklin DaVault and Lucinda Adella Fallis, on 3 February 1904 at the home of the bride, Pratt, Pratt Co., KS; ceremony by Rev. Willy K. Estill, minister. Mary Myrtle Sewell lived on 1 March 1925 at Pratt, Pratt Co., KS.2 She died on 29 August 1957 at age 69. She was buried in 1957 at Greenlawn Cemetery, Pratt, Pratt Co., KS, Findagrave #76140683.

Obituary -- (

Richard Alan Seybolt, of Duluth and Boynton Beach, Florida, died unexpectedly on May 19. Rick was born on October 4, 1942, in Columbus, Ohio, to Alan Upson Seybolt and Dorothea Hoover Seybolt. Shortly after his birth, his family relocated to Los Alamos, New Mexico, where his father worked during
the war.

Rick spent his grade school years in Scotia and Schenectady, New York. He attended high school at the Williston Academy in Easthampton, Massachusetts (now known as the Williston Northampton School) where he lettered in soccer, basketball and baseball. He completed his undergraduate degree at Middlebury College, Middlebury, Vermont. He was a member of the Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity. He obtained a master's degree in Spain, and completed his PhD in Spanish at Indiana University.

While at IU, he fell in love with a beautiful Hoosier named Jane Wedding, who was studying for her master's degree in English. They were married in Frankin, Indiana, on June 8, 1968.

Rick's career started at Colgate University in Hamilton, New York, where he was an assistant professor of Spanish. His son Blake was born there in 1971. Rick then joined his brother Steve on the faculty of their alma mater, Williston. After two years and the birth of son Cameron, the family moved to Duluth in 1974. Rick taught Spanish language and literature at UMD for over 34 years. His primary area of expertise was 16th and 17th century literature, but he equally enjoyed teaching freshmen to speak the Spanish language. He officially retired in 2008 and began spending winters in Boynton Beach, Florida, but he continued teaching classes at UMD periodically during fall semester. The day he died he spent the afternoon reading and taking notes in preparation for future teaching.

Rick was an active member of Glen Avon Presbyterian Church for many years. He also enjoyed his Wednesday "golf therapy group," and doubles tennis. Rick and Jane were members of long-lasting bridge groups, including one that has met continuously for over 35 years.

He was known for his dry sense of humor, his devotion to family and friends, and his work ethic. According to Rick's second grade report card, "Ricky's success is due, not only to his native intelligence, but also to his well-rounded interests and many fine character traits. In any work Ricky can be depended on to do his best."

Rick is survived and will be dearly missed by his wife of over 46 years, Jane Wedding Seybolt; his sons Blake (Raven), and Cameron (Katie); four grandchildren; his brother Stephen (Phyllis); his sister-in-law Mary Ann Wedding; and many dear friends from his childhood, working life, and retirement.

He was buried in May 2015 at Forest Hill Cemetery, Duluth, St. Louis Co., MN, Findagrave #146870526.

Minnie Frederika Seyfried1

F, b. 27 August 1846, d. 10 March 1929
     Minnie Frederika Seyfried was born on 27 August 1846 at Württemberg, Germany, 1848 in Berlin, Germany, according to her 1929 newspaper obituary. I consider the 1880 and 1900 censuses more accurate. DLB 2020.2,1 She married Isaac Denton on 13 June 1872 at Christian Co., IL. Minnie Frederika Seyfried died on 10 March 1929 at Windsor, Shelby Co., IL, at age 82. She was buried in March 1929 at Oak Ridge Cemetery, Springfield, Sangamon Co., IL, Findagrave #32871683.
Note: Minnie's maiden name was a German name, probably Seyfried. Her newspaper obituary spelled it Seyfreit, which is possible, but it also gives her birthplace as Berlin, Germany, which is nowhere near Württemberg which she reported in 1880, so the credibility of the obituary is not high. It gives her first husband's name as John States, but it was apparently "Spates" as per her daughter Carrie/Cordelia's 1880 census record and Christian County marriage record. John Spates died in 1870. DLB 2020.
