  • Notes 
    • SEATON, George Washington.-Among other claims to consideration, George Washington Seaton is known to Cantonians as the first cigar inspector of the town. He came to Fulton County as a young lad from Crawford County, Ind., where he was born may 9, 1883, and ever since has made Fulton County his home. Mr. Seaton is of German ancestry, his paternal grandfather, John Seaton, having come from Germany to America about the middle of the last century, settling presumably in the State of Tennessee, where James Seaton, the father of George Washington, was born and where he married Winifred Roberts, a native of Kentucky.

      Educated in the public schools of Fulton County, G. W. Seaton at first engaged in farming with his father, but eventually drifted into business in Canton, as before stated, serving as the city's first cigar inspector. He is a natural politician, a stanch Republican and has served five terms as Alderman of the First Ward. His first wife dying in 1879, Mr. Seaton married, September 6, 1890, m. V. Downing. Mr. Seaton's first wife, Louise (Culton) Seaton, was a native of Fulton County, and became the mother of six children: William P., Anna, Charles A., Kate, Frederick and George W. Fraternally Mr. Seaton is identified with the Morning Star Lodge, No. 734, A. F. & A. M. He is one of the community's most honored and useful citizens.
