Biography* 1977  From A Genealogical and Biographical History of Allegheny County, Pennsylvania By Thomas Cushing, page 661

William H. Seaman, Leetsdale, was born June 22, 1835, in Darlington, Beaver county, Pa. His grandfather, John Seaman, was born in Reading county, Pa., of German descent. He came in an early day to Butler county, where he was a merchant. He was the father of eight children, of whom Elias, who was a saddler in Butler county, Pa., married Margaret, daughter of Charles Georing(sic), whose father was one of the first settlers in Butler county. William H. was educated in Pittsburgh, attended the Western University, and learned his trade, that of carpenter, in the same city, which he followed for many years. Eventually he went into the fruit business at Mt. Sewickley fruit-farm, in Leet township. He left this and returned to his trade, at which he is now employed. He was married, in Pittsburgh, to Miss Henrietta Cunningham, who is the mother of seven children: Andrew (a merchant in Leetsdale), Thomas (on the P.,Ft. W. & C. R. R.), George M. (of the Tradesmen's Bank of Pittsburgh), Mrs. Mary Davis, Charlotte, and two sons who died. Mr. and Mrs. Seaman are members of the Presbyterian Church, of Leetsdale, of which he is an elder, and superintendent of the Sabbath-school.8
