Personal Information    |    Sources    |    Event Map    |    All

  • Name Earl S. Seagrave 
    • The surname presented for this person as with each other in this study is based on the dominant spelling found in the various records researched, but primarily on the name carved on the person's gravestone. EXCEPT for the common variations of the Seagraves family name of which there are over 20, such as Segraves, Seagreaves, Seagroves, etc. For clarity and ease of analysis all those variations have been given the Seagraves name. Certain variations are used so consistently within a family that they have been retained in this analysis, specifically, SAGRAVES and SEAGRAVE. The Seagraves version is the most common found (about 39%) of all on the 1940 census. A discussion of the name spelling variations can be found on the Home Page of this website.

    • The transcriber for the Department of Veterans Affairs BIRLS Death File must have had a bad view of Earl's birth date. Both the Connecticut Death Index and Findagrave.com report his birth date as 18 Jun 1914, but the BIRLS Death File shows 8 Jun 1911 with the corresponding death date of 11 Feb 1993.
      I will stay with the 1914 birth date until better information comes along. [1, 2, 3]
