“At Lonaconing, Allegany County, Maryland, December 15, 1857, DANIEL SEASE, aged 58 years, 15 days.
He left his home on Monday morning well as usual, to be absent a few days on business. During the day he complained of weakness or giddiness but insisted that in a short time he would be better. The following morning he still felt a pressure about the region of the heart, and having procured something for relief, was just in the act of taking it when suddenly he was stricken down and expired in a few moments, without uttering a word. Thus without the opportunity of a farewell to his dear family, or the privilege of dying at home, he was taken from time to eternity. He had no last word and nothing escaped his lips but a few breathings, and then all was still.
The consternation and grief which this sudden and awful stroke occasioned was great. The members of the family were not only overwhelmed but the neighborhood soon felt the shock. The feelings and expressions of the bereaved widow were indescribable. She looked, she spoke, she touched, but, oh! he was dead! To the aged mother and beloved wife, bereft of an affectionate companion, and to the daughters and friends, deprived of the protection and advice of a kind and loving father, would, we say remember the promise, ‘Let the widow trust in me, and the fatherless children will I preserve them alive.’ ‘I will be a husband to the widow and a father to the fatherless.’” [DEMOCRATIC ALLEGANIAN 12-26-1857, p. 2]

“Tuesday morning, Dec. 6, 1892, at the residence of W.J. Cooper, his son-in-law, Mr. Conrad E. Seifker, in the 70th year of his age. He had been ill several months. Mr. Seifker was a German by birth, but came to this country at the age of 16, settling in Frostburg. Excepting 15 years residence in Cumberland, he had been a resident of this place ever since. His nearest relatives are Mrs. W.[illiam] J. Cooper and children, and a brother in Germany. He was an industrious, sober, christian gentleman, and enjoyed the respect of all who knew him. Long a member of the Lutheran church and a Free Mason, his funeral took place Thursday in the edifice of that denomination and the Ancient Order buried him. Rev. C.A. Britt delivered an appropriate discourse and Mountain Lodge, No. 99, of this place, and a delegation from Potomac Lodge, of Cumberland, had charge of the remains. The interment took place in the family lot in the old cemetery.” [FMJ, 12-10-1892, p. 3]
