Seager, Adelbert "Dell" Jason (7 Nov. 1875 - 10 May 1937)

Dell Seager a life-long resident of the town of Weston died suddenly of heart failure at his home Monday morning, May 10.

Adelbert Jason Seager was born in the town of Weston, Nov. 7, 1875, grew to manhood, and lived all his life on the same farm where he was born, and where his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Niran Seager lived before him.

His life was comparatively uneventful. He was industrious and frugal, a careful farmer who loved his land and his livestock.

He had no enemies and had the respect of all who knew him.

Mr. Seager never married, his sister, Elsie, the only survivor of the family doing the housework in the home and sharing with him in the care of the farm. The deepest sympathy is felt for her in her lonely bereavement.

Funeral services will be held at the home, Thursday afternoon at 2 o’clock in charge of the Jaster Funeral Service, and Rev. G. W. Longenecker officiating.

Burial will take place in the Neillsville Cemetery.
