specifically listed in 1912 as residing with the family at 4023 Alcott. He was living in Pueblo, CO, when he died in 1920 and is buried between the graves of his mother and father. Charles never married. He has no monument.

Thomas John Seiler - 112 (1874 - 1944) became an apprentice in a Denver lithography shop in 1890, at age 16, and worked in printing for several years. He married Veronica Tragressor (6 Jun 1865 - 12 Dec 1954) on 5 Aug 1906 of Evansville, IN, in Denver, CO. They had no children. Thomas J. is listed in the Denver directories up through 1914 as a pressman. He is buried in Mount Olivet Cemetery, beside his wife, Veronica. Their graves are adjacent to and immediately north of that of Mary Theresa Seiler.

Catherine Elizabeth Seiler - 113 (1875 - 1956) was in the first graduating eight-grade class of St. Patrick's Parish School (which was founded in 1885) in May, 1891 (she is called “Katie” Seiler in the history of St. Patrick's Golden Jubilee Booklet, 1934, where I found this information); she returned to the school in September for high school work. Catherine is listed in the Denver directory in 1900 as a bookkeeper. She became a nun in 1902, being the first member from St. Patrick's parish in Denver to become a nun of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet in St. Louis, MO. She took the name Sr. Mary Eulogia. Catherine E. taught mathematics and science from 1904 until 1951 in various schools in MI, WI, MO, GA, IN, and CO. She also held administrative positions in several schools and was the superior at several of her posts. She died in St. Joseph's hospital in Kansas City and is interred in St. Mary's Cemetery in Kansas City.

Joseph Ephraim Seiler - 114 (1878 - 1962) became an apprentice lithographer at age 16 and appears to have spent his life in the printing industry in Denver. He married Martha May (20 May 1882 - 15 May 1972) of Germany in Denver, CO, on 20 May 1906. They had no children. Joseph E. worked as a Linotype operator and machinist in print shops and for newspapers (but is absent from the directories of 1919-22). He was working for the Rocky Mountain News in 1930. When Joseph died 13 Oct 1962 he was living at 1826 S. Federal Blvd. in Denver; a rosary was held at Hoffmanns Mortuary followed by a requiem mass the following day at All Saint's Catholic Church. He and wife Martha are buried in Mount Olivet Cemetery but not in the family lot (sec. 26, blk. 4, lot 16). There is no monument.

Rosina (Rose) Barbara Seiler - 117 (1884 - 1961) attended St. Patrick's School (I have a copy of a photograph from the archives of the Archdiocese of Denver of the second grade class of 1892 in which she is pictured). She worked as a clerk, starting in 1903, and moved up to cashier in 1909 with J. B. Garvin & Co. Rose married Jesse B. Garvin (12 May 1871, Fremont, OH - 9 May 1963) (probably a member of the store family) on 23 Jun 1909 in St. Patrick's Church. When the 1910 census was taken the Garvins were living with Rose's mother at 4023 Alcott; Rose was 26 and Jesse, a druggist with his own store, was 39; in the household was Francis G., son, age 18; he may have been a son of Jesse's by a previous marriage; also the Garvins are indicated as having had a child who was not then living (the print is dim on the film and difficult to read, so some of this information may be incorrect). They had two children: Catherine Francis (3 Jun 1912 - 23 Aug 1930) and David Bartlett (2

Jun 1918 -

). At the time of the 1920 census Rose and Jesse were still living with her
