Albert L. Seeley


Gender: Male

Date of Death: September 24, 1910

Death Place: Columbus, OH


Columbus O., Sept. 24 – Albert Seeley, aged 29, whose home is at 1092 Lincoln street, Portsmouth, O., while stealing a ride on a train in the N.&W. yards about 3 o’clock Saturday morning, had slipped and fell beneath the cars, it is supposed, and had both legs cut off. He was taken to the protestant hospital, where he died at 8:30 o’clock.

Seeley is a son of Wm. Seeley of Lincoln street, and when seen by a Times reporter, the father only knew that his son had been injured in Columbus.

The unfortunate man left home Friday afternoon without a word to anyone, but he had remarked a few days ago that he was “going north to cut corn.”

Seeley was single and a young man of good habits. He was liked by all who knew him. He was especially affectionate to his father and mother, who are very aged and almost prostrated with grief. He had been employed by the Portsmouth Gas Co. until a few days ago, when he resigned.

He is survived by a father, mother, three sisters, Mrs. Sophie Graf, Mrs. Sam Burt and Mrs. John Frederick and four brothers Charles of this city, Acie of Iowa City, Iowa, and George and Amos of Haverhill.

No arrangements will be made for the funeral until his body arrives.
