  1. [S33] Note, Bob served in the Air Force between 2 January 1943 & 6 March 1946. He was inducted at Battle Creek. He was sent to St Petersburg, FL for Basic Training. He was first stationed at Harris Neck, St. Catherine's Island where he was taught Plane recognition. He spent time at Waycross, Georgia airfield where p-39's were used to train pilots. Bob and his friend Harry, where in town and spotted their wives, JoAnn and Juanita Mudge, walking toward them. They had come as a surprise visit, while there, JoAnn met a Sergeant assigned to personnel who was living near them there at the base. He asked JoAnn where Bob would like to be stationed, she said Hollywood, and soon Bob was sent to Hollywood. The unfortunate part of the transfer was the transport to California. He was sent on a troop train, which consisted of box cars with men loaded in much like cattle. They had no room to lay down, thus were forced to stand the entire trip. They had stop overs at Key Field in Mississippi, and Baton Rouge, Louisiana. While on the train there was no food or water available leaving the troops weak and dehydrated when they did arrive at a base. Because of the conditions, and poor food preparation, many of the troops suffered from food poisoning and bed bug bites, when arriving at a stop west of Baton Rouge, Bob and most of the others literally crawled out of the cars. Once arriving in Hollywood, things became much better. Bob stayed at the Embassy Hotel while going to school at Southeastern. In the evenings he entertained himself by going to live performances of the Big Bands that were in town. One evening he went to the popular night club, Florentine Gardens. The club was very crowded and he ended up being seated next to the dance floor. At sometime during his stay, he saw Johnny Weissmueller drunk at a bar at lunch time. After his schooling, he was sent to Seymour Johnson Air Force Base, in South Carolina; he was assigned as an investigator, but stayed only a short time before being stationed at Sufferage Field until March of 1945. He was then transferred to Lynn, Massachusetts, he stayed there for a month, then moved to Arye, Mass. (Fort Devens POW camp) and remained there until he was discharged. His assignment at the camp was to find where the missing POW's were and how they were getting out of the camp. The mystery was solved when it was discovered that the cook staff, women from the civilian community, many of them single, were taking the POW's home with them and boarding them in their homes. While stationed here, Bob received orders to go overseas, but the war ended before he was shipped. [autobiographical given orally to his daughter, Kathleen, 23 April 2003]

Elizabeth made her will 12 October 1887 at Drayton Plains, Oakland County, Michigan. Dear Children, -
I have written so often regarding the disposal of bits of furniture and things. And in looking them over I have destroyed a great deal, thinking it best to do so. I hope and do believe you will all do just right. So I leave what I have not designated to your good judgement.
To Willie, I have given so much already that you must count that for him, I mean bits. The plated stuff, the urn to John, the looking glass, many, etc., The old English poets, three volumes, are for Guss W. Ives. The Bryant books and bits you mustdivide pleasantly. This old round table for Mort. The pretty china vases I gave to Eliza L. Randal long ago-the shells that are about came from Grandma Margaret Leggett. Divide them as you think best. Make sure each grandchild has a bit. You know how I want the silver divided - weigh all there is except the gift of cups to Lizzy and Blanche. Let every scrap be put together and weighed and equally divided. I think you all know how feel about everything. My little writing desk for Elizabeth Barthel.
Elizabeth Seaman Leggett, Drayton Plains,Michigan 11/10/1888

My dear Mort., I give you my father's watch, the one that he always wore and after he died my mother wore the one my brother, John F. Seaman sent to me. I've intended it for Valentine T. Ives, he seemed to think he'd be my doctor but he will probably have the picture of Valentine Seaman, M.D., that will due. Also I say in this for Anna T. Randall, the largest looking glass as I feel it best that she should have it. By some way, Willie should should have the other glass.- I feel happier for Annie to have this. Mortimer should also have the old bookcase. Lamb's History of New York the very old book L. Seaman sent to me. The Universal Histories of the magazine from Lee Seaman, the, the Leggett Family Bible, the one of W. H. Leggetts grandfather Anna Randall to have my mother's bible. The handsome Shakespeares to Augusta W. Pease the choice of the eminent women as Lizzy had the beautiful photo book. I've given many books to William. I own and also to Elizabeth. The great encyclopedia to Blanche. I gave them to her when she was sixteen. Make the division of books as little trouble as you can and also other bits of appreciation. You must manage as you can. You must not say mother said I could have this or that but do exactly right. The old green and the old round table for Anna Randall. Many bits you must settle among yourselves. I have made lissts and torn them up. the Henry chair, the old clock , the marble slab, my Mother's bureau, the handsome library table, my pictures, my mother's picture, father's, Percy's picture crayon oh, and lots that I have not given Now Do exactly right. the lounge, bedstead I want Mort to have the bedstead and all that appertanins to it. The small bedstead in the room I now occupy for Blanche in lieu of the mattress she gave me and I think the pillows. This is my last will and testament.

      It is my wish that all sums of money that may be due me from any of my children at the time of my death, be deducted from their share of my said estate, but that interest due and unpaid at the such time be considered as cancelled and be not deducted. The share of my said estate here given to my son William, is subject to advances heretofore made to him, and amounting in all, to $ 1.150, I wish that all interests on this sum that is not paid at my death, be not charged against him, but that the principal sum only, be deducted. This sum he having already had his portion of my estate, will be lessen to that extent.
      Should I leave any real esstate, I impower my executors to sell the same, at either public or private sale, as they may deem best, in the interest of all.

Obituary - Mrs. Elizabeth Seaman Leggett ___
Widely-Known Friend of the People died yesterday.
Patriotic Woman Accomplished much for humanity. ___
Interesting Story of Her Long and Busy Career. ___

Mrs. Eliza Seaman Leggett, widow of the late Augustus W. Leggett, died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. C. C. Randall, of Drayton Plains, at ten minutes after 7 yesterday morning. Her seven children and many of her grandchildren were with her at the end.
In the death of Eliza Seaman Leggett friendship loses one of the most faithful exponents, peace one of its most insistent advocates and kindness one of its most shining examples. She had the faculty of gaining the admiration and love of everyone with whom she came in contact, and in her eighty-five years of life she endeared herself to hundreds of people by gentle acts of charity and loving-kindness. Always active and energetic, her every thought was for the promotion of the good and the happiness of others, her every act for the benefit of sone fellow being.
Eliza Seaman Leggett was born in New York May 9, 1815. Her father was Dr. Valentine Seaman, a prominent physician, the first to introduce vaccination into the state of New York. On November 23, 1836, she married Augustus W. Leggett and moved with him to Roslyn, L.I., a village to which she gave its name. There was made the acquaintance of William Cullen Bryant and Charles A. Dana and she knew many interesting anecdotes of the professional side of those two men. After twenty two years in Roslyn, Mr. & Mrs. Leggett removed to Michigan and settling in Pontiac. They afterwards moved to Mill Farm, Clintonville and remained there until they came to Detroin in 1864.
Center of Literary Activity.
The Leggett home on East Elizabeth street early became a center of social and literary activity. Mrs. Leggett was the founder of the Detroit Woman's Club. She had made a practice of entertaining Madame King and Mrs. L. H. Stone at her home one afternoon every week, the club grew out of those gatherings and the preliminary meetings were held in the basement of the old Unitarian church. Mrs. Cheaney, of Boston, was also prominent in the work of the orgainzation and Mrs. John J. Bagley was the clubs first president. The "Aurora Boraslis" was the work of Mrs. Leggett and the first meeting of the Prismatic Club was held at her home. Mr. Leggett was this clubs first president. It was Mrs. Leggett who was one of the first to advocate taking Belle Isle for a public park, and the idea of having public drinking fountains originated with her. The plan of setting aside a day dedicated to the memory of Columbus came from Mrs. Leggett and was suggested by her to the poet Walt Whitman whom she knew intimately well. The Custer School owes its first flag to her generosity, and she was among the first to advocate the flying of the national colors from the staff of every school-house in the country.
The slavery question interested Mrs. Leggett deeply and she was an ardent and outspoken Abolitionist. She was closely in touch with the Underground Railroad and helped many a poor creature to escape into Canada. During the time of the war she was in close correspondence with Garrett Smith and other men prominent in anti slavery matters. She knew Laura Haviland intimately and was of great service to her in her work. Her lovable nature gave her a strong hand on many poor creatures whom no one else could move to repent since she never shrank from any person, no matter how vile. On one occasion a woman who was known as a thoroughly desperate character called at the home and insisted on meeting Mrs. Leggett, after she had refused to yeild to the words of any other human being but Mrs. Leggett drew from her whole story and afterwards aided her to reform.
--- Earnest Worker---
In the work leading up to and connected with the Freedman's Fair. Mrs. Leggett played a prominent part, she was a delegate to the fair at Chicago, and appeared there in the character of Mrs. Partington in her work against slavery and in the work she was doing for literature. Mrs. Leggett knew some of the most prominent reformers and literaries or her time. Among them were Theodore Parker, Lucretiaa Mott, Washington Irving, Alcott with many others. One of the best instances of her far reaching interest in the work of reform and aid was the fact that she opened her house for a fair for the benefit of the Working Woman's Home. The fair lasted three days and such was the prestige given to it from its place of meeting and such was Mrs. Leggett's influence on those surrounding her that she turned over to the treasurer of the home over $ 1,300.
Mrs. Leggett resided in Detroit until the death of her husband in 1885. In that year she went to Drayton Plains and took up her residence with her son, Mortimer A. Leggett. Her failing health two years ago necessitated her removal to the residence of her daughter, Mrs. C. C. Randall, whose home she lived until the last summon came. [Detroit Free Press - 10 February 1900] Elizabeth was buried at Oak Hill Cemetery, Pontiac, Oakland County, Michigan. Cemetery records note: 1815 NY City-8 Feb. 1900 Detroit 84 years][Plot 4-447].
