  • Notes 
    • [Written by grandson Roy Seaver]
      Grandma Gorse came over from Germany when she was about
      six I think. I don't know what part tho. About all I know
      of her, or about her is that her maiden name was Elizabeth
      Hood. I think she was born in 1848. Her father and mother
      were both dead by the time she was 13. Probably buried at
      Kansas City. She had a hard time from then on as the people
      that raised her was awful mean to her. Her and grandpa met
      while she was working in a restaurant in Kansas City. She
      had a brother killed in the Civil War.
      Grandma died July 1920. Grandpa died December 1920.
      They are both buried in the Deerifled, Missouri cemetery.
