Alexander Seymour is the head of household on the 1900 U.S. Census record. It would make Charles HIS brother-in-law, as the listings always show relationships to the head of household. Therefore, Charles would be Victoria's brother as I previously mentioned since Victoria is Alexander's wife.


Clara's maiden name IS Seymour. Simard is a mispelling by the record taker. Also, the marriage record is for Raymond and not Alfred, Jr.

Raymond and Anna were not cousins, although Anna may be related to Joseph Alt who was Raymond's adopted father since Melanie Alt was her mother. I haven't gone in depth on the Alt family at all.


If Joseph and Mary Alt were Raymond's parents, he would be shown on the 1910 U.S. Census. There is no listing for him on there nor do I see a Raymond Alt anywhere in Michigan on the 1910 U.S. Census.
