At the end of April 1908, William and Beatrice returned to Vancouver.

Immigration to United States

Between 1915 and 1919, it appears that William spent some time in Regina, Saskatchewan. Beatrice may have remained in Vancouver during this time.

On November 23, 1919, William and Beatrice, along with their children, travelled to Seattle. They were planning to become permanent residents of the United States.

They had changed their last name from “Schwartz” to “Seaton,” which was a variation of William’s mother’s maiden name of “Seeton.” From then on all the family members used “Seaton” for their surname. (The reason for the name change is not certain, but during and after the First World War many people changed their German-sounding names to those that were more “British.”)

In the 1920 United States census, the Seaton family was living in Burbank, California. William was working for the National Bank.

In 1925, William and Beatrice applied to become naturalized United States citizens.

In 1930, the family was in Beverly Hills, California. The 1930 United States census referred to William as “Alden W. Seaton.” He was the manager of a wholesale drug company.

In 1931, William and Beatrice became naturalized United States citizens.

In 1940, William and Beatrice, along with their son, Donald, were still living in Beverly Hills. William was a wholesale drug manager.

William reported to the United States military draft system in 1942. His employer was the Los Angeles Drug Company.

Beatrice died in Los Angeles County on September 26, 1947.

William died in Los Angeles County on September 21, 1955. He was buried in Forest Lawn Memorial Park (Glendale).

The Los Angeles Times, September 24, 1955, page 38, column 3.

The Los Angeles Times, September 24, 1955, page 38, column 3.

William and Beatrice had the following children.

 

Beatrice Alden Schwartz (later Seaton)

Beatrice Alden Schwartz was born in Vancouver on March 1, 1913.

She travelled to the United States with her parents in 1919. (After this time, she was known as Beatrice Alden Seaton.)

In 1920 and 1930 she was living with her parents in California.

She studied at Marlborough School and later went to the University of California at Los Angeles.

On September 9, 1936, in Beverly Hills, California, she married Hermon Stone Hatch, who had also gone to the University of California at Los Angeles.

In 1940, Beatrice and Hermon were living in Beverly Hills, along with their daughter, Patricia, who was born on November 13, 1937.

Beatrice and Hermon were divorced in 1946.

Divorces Granted, Los Angeles Times, June 20, 1946, page 12, column 7.

It appears that Hermon later married Phyllis M. (last name unknown), who was born in Michigan on June 21, 1915.

In the 1948 California voters list, Hermon and Phyllis were at 128 21st Street in Los Angeles County.

Donald Dimock Schwartz (later Seaton)

Donald Dimock Schwartz was born in Vancouver on August 31, 1914.

He travelled to the United States with his parents in 1919. (After this time, he was known as Donald Dimock Seaton.)

In 1920, 1930 and 1940 he was living with his parents in California. In 1946 he applied to become a naturalized United States citizen, and he became a citizen in 1947.

On August 32, 2958, in Los Angeles, he married Louanna Larue (Peddicord). This marriage ended in divorce in May 1968.
