Charles William & Marianne Forsyth Seegmiller



(pioneer, wagoneer, tanner, farmer)


Charles William Seegmiller was born January 2, 1843 in Manheim or Baden, Waterloo, Ontario, Canada.

Marianne (or Marianme, or Mariamne) "Minnie" Forsyth was born April 6, 1848 in Keg Creek, Pottawattamie, Iowa

On July 19, 1866, shortly after arriving in Salt Lake city, Charles was baptized a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. His mother and sister had joined the church twelve days earlier.

Charles married Marianne on February 1, 1868 in the Endowment House in Salt Lake City.

In the fall of 1868, Charles and his brother Dan were called to Dixie to run the Tannery. After arriving there, Charles & Minnie visited with her folks at Toquerville for a short time, and while there they were called to go to the Muddy Mission in Nevada, to take his brother Adam's place there, as Adam had been called to go to St. George, Utah to help run the Tannery.

After being released from the Muddy MIssion, some two or three years later, they came to St. George for about a year, then he went to Prattville, Sevier County, Utah where they lived until the spring of 1877, when Charles returned to St. George to care for his mother, whose health was failing. They continued to reside in his mother’s home, which she had previously purchased from Thomas Judd.

Marianne died July 30, 1912 in St. George.

Charles died in May 4, 1946 in St George. He is buried in Plot A-E-123-5 of the St. George City Cemetery.

1 There are a number of variations in the spelling of Marianne's name
  including Marianne, Marianme, and Mariamne.
    She mostly went by the nickname, Minnie.
    Her LDS membership record has Marianne Forsyth
    and her gravestone has Mariamne F. Seegmiller.
    A number of other spellings are probably just erroneous.
