Bluff. Their address and phone number is as follows:

I am searching for the following Seaton's from Sioux City:
William M. Seaton, born 1879, married Agnes Halverson in 1908. Their
children were, Harold Raymond born 1912, June Pauline born 1914, Joyce Agnes
born 1917 and Betty Delores born 1924. Does anyone know of these or any
other Seatons in Sioux City? Also, Agnes' parents were John H. Halverson and
Mary (Unclear Allison) and I would like to know more about them.

I am researching multiple surnames in Woodbury Co and would like to be able
to find the obits for these folks. I have found that the Sioux City
Journal in the early 1900's is very difficult for locating an Obit. easily
[unless your ancestor was a well known businessman or community leader]. I
am wondering if there were alternate papers or local township papers that
may have existed and may be archived somewhere in the county. I am
primarily interested in Grant township and surrounding community, as well
as the Sargent Bluff's area between 1905 - 1920.
The surnames I am researching in Woodbury County: NORTON, MCCLUSKY, RIPPLE,
Thanks in advance for any assistance.
