                                   Eva Adams Seeman


    Eva Augusta Adams was born on 5 Feb 1864 at Florence, Stephenson co., Illinois.  In Oct 1881, at the age of seventeen, she went to Grundy co., Iowa, to join her brothers Oscar and Morace who were farming there.  About 1887, she relocated with her brothers to Sutherland, O'Brien co., Iowa, where she likely met Henry Seeman, a Colorado hardware merchant.  She and Henry were married 4 Oct 1888 at her father's home in Florence, Illinois.


    After their marriage, the Seemans went to Colorado, and then back to Stephenson co., Illinois (Freeport) by 1896, where Henry worked for Stover Cicycle Manufacturing Company.  In 1899, Henry enrolled as a student at St. Louis College of Physicians and Surgeons, and later attended the University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee.  After his graduation, the family moved to Dubuque, Iowa, where he practiced under the guidance of his brother, Dr. Frederick Seemann, and in 1904 set up permanent practice on his own in Rockham, Faulk co., South Dakota.


    On 2 Nov 1907, Eva passed away from tuberculosis; she had been sick about one year.  She was buried at Rockham Grace Cemetery just outside of Rockham.


    Henry and Eva (Adams) Seeman were the parents of five children: Leona, Lloyd, Myrtle, Mazie, and Earl.
