"Mrs. Sarah (Chapman) Seaton was a large, fine-looking lady as I remember her, and her photograph shows her to have been. She was a fine housekeeper and needlewoman, and was kind to the grandchildren as any grandmother could have been; and the fact that grandparents always spoil the grandchildren with kindness has become proverbial. I can remember going to her home often, when I was a small boy, hoping and expecting she would give me some cookies or apples, of which it was soon learned there was always an abundance. And I do not remember ever to have gone in vain; nor was the giving skimped. She, being usually busy, would send me to the cellar and tell me to fill my pockets, a permission I was not slow nor backward about improving. She died at her home in Henderson on the fifth day of October, 1887, aged 76 y 3 m 23 days at death. She worked as a tailoress in 1870 in Henderson, Jefferson County.
