14 Children, 5 Child Graves

Recently, while working on sourcing my ancestor Jonathan Seavey, of Bridgton, Maine, I became increasingly fascinated with the many children he had, with two wives, and how many died as children. As I came to grasp how sorrowful this must have been, I wondered if it might help me to put his family life on a timeline.

Searching online for something quick and easy, I came across this free Excel timeline template and this (click on chart for better view) is the very cool result!


  1. Very cool! I'm off to try this one right now!

  2. I am so glad you shared that, it is exacty what I have been wishing for and need now. Thanks for sharing.
