Biography* 1895  JOSEPH SIDNEY SEAMAN was born in Harmony, Butler county, Pennsylvania, April 14, 1839, the third child of Elias and Margaret SEAMAN. His mother was a daughter of Charles GOEHRING, and was born in Cranberry township, Butler county, September 11, 1814. In 1834 she married Elias SEAMAN, and became the mother of five children, as follows: William Henry; Elias Jefferson, who died July 1, 1859; Joseph Sidney; Edward M., and Elias Francis. The father was born February 20 1812, in Berks county, Pennsylvania, and died August 24, 1842. Mrs. SEAMAN afterwards married George GIESS, in 1848, which union was blessed with four children: Charles P.; Henrietta: Charlotte, who died in infancy, and Emma, wife of Jonas ZIEGLER. Mrs. GIESS, who is still living at the ripe age of eighty years, retains all her mental faculties, and is a very intelligent woman. The subject of this sketch was educated in the public schools of Zelienople, to which village his parents removed when he was quite young. At the age of seventeen he went to Pittsburg, and served an apprenticeship of three years at roll-turning. By his energy and close application to business, he advanced step by step, until he became a member of the firm of J. B. Young & Company. This firm was prosperous and successful from its inception, and after some changes it was recognized as one of the most important manufacturing establishments in Pittsburg, and is now know as the Phoenix Roll Works, of Seaman, Sleeth & Black. Mr. SEAMAN was elected the first president of the company, which position he still occupies. He is a stanch Republican and has been president of the Lincoln Club since its organization. For the past twelve years he has been president of the school board of his ward, and takes a deep interest in educational matters; is a charter member and director of the Pennsylvania National Bank and a member of the Chamber of Commerce. He is a prominent member and trustee of Grant Street Lutheran church, and is a member of the building committee of that and the East End Mission church. Mr. SEAMAN was married March 22, 1863, to Miss Alice H. SLATER, to which union have been born three children: Charles B.; Grace, and Joseph, all of whom are living. He has always taken a deep interest in religious matters, and has contributed to the support of everything pertaining to the advancement and development of his home., Principal=Mary Margaret Charlotta Goehring5
