      George G. Seaton, a farmer and pioneer settler of Rockford, Illinois, was a very devout man, and smoking and drinking he held to be sins that could not be condoned by any religion. He had a deep-rooted horror of the cigarette habit, and never lost an opportunity to wage war against it either in public or among his friends and relatives.

      He left an estate worth $50,000. The principal legatees under his will were his daughters, Mrs. Alice Crunke, and his son, Arthur Seaton. To four nieces and six nephews he bequeathed sums ranging from one hundred to two hundred dollars each, with the proviso that if any of the legatees should use to excess either cigarettes or alcoholic liquors, that portion which was to go to them should go to some charitable institution, to be determined by the executors. All of the heirs are said to have been of the same opinion as Mr. Seaton, on this question. The Seaton Family, with Genealogy and Biographies by Oren Andrew Seaton 1906
