DEATH OF THEODORE L. SEWALL.
One of the Prominent Educators of Indianapolis - His History.


The death of Mr. Theodore L Sewall, while not unanticipated, occurred rather suddenly yesterday morning at 6 o'clock at the family residence on North Pennsylvania street. For a number of years Mr. Sewall has known that his life was in danger from tuberculosis. Two years ago he spent the winter South and last winter and spring he was in New Mexico and Arizona, having given up all business in the hopes of recovery. He returned to Indianapolis late in the spring and was here for several weeks. A specialist came on from New York to see Mr. Sewall and advised his going to a sanitarium at Poughkeepsie. N.Y. This Mr. Sewall did, but found he was not benefited and returned home the last day of November. Soon after his return he became worse and went to bed, and his decline since that time has been gradual. Mr. Sewall was a gentle man, kind, courteous, a scholar of high attainment, and one whose character, honesty of purpose and unwavering fidelity stamped him as unusual.
Mr. Sewall came to Indianapolis in 1867 to make a visit. He was asked to start a preparatory school for boys, and in September of that year he opened the Boys' Classical School. Associated with him as an advisory board were some of the most influential men of the city, including Albert Fletcher, A.W. Hendricks, N.A. Hyde and others. Mr. Sewall also had a fine corps of instructors. The school was a success and the property at the northwest corner of Alabama and North streets was bought by Mr. Sewall for the school. In 1880 Mr. Sewall married Mrs. May Wright Thompson, one of the leading teachers in the Indianapolis High School. In 1882 they opened the Girls' Classical School, which was a success from the start Both schools were carried on, Mr. Bewail having charts of the one for boys and Mrs. Sewall the one for girls. This was continued until 1889, when the boys' school was sold and both Mr. and Mrs. Sewall devoted themselves to the girls' school. Mr. Sewall taught languages and other branches and on him devolved the financial management for which he was pre-eminently qualified. He was a good business man and the success of the school was his great ambition. Mr. Sewall was a man of fine literary tastes and one of the most prominent members of the Indianapolis Literary (formerly the Gentlemen's Club). He was president the season of 1890-1891, and was its secretary several years. All his work in the club was valuable and thoroughly prepared. One, in particular, which created great interest was a history of the club with sketches of the prominent members, which is described as "an interesting characterisation of individuals." Another paper was a review of "Marie Bashkirtseff," of fine literary quality. He was a fine critic and discriminating; a modest man, so much so that only those who knew him well realized his real worth. He was one of the organizers of the Contemporary Club, and served as its secretary four years. He was also a member of the Art Association. In faith Mr. Sewall was a Unitarian. He was identified with the First Presbyterian Church. His parents have been telegraphed, and other relatives also. The time for the funeral, which will be conducted by Rev. M.L. Haines and Rev. N.A. Hyde, will be announced later.
Thomas Lovett Sewall was born at Massillon, O., Sept., 20, 1853. His father and mother were of old Massachusetts families. He was a descendant of Chief Justice Sewall, Rev. Joseph Sewall and the second Chief Justice Samuel Sewall. Mr. Sewall attended school at Wilmington, Del. and entered Harvard College in 1870 and was graduated in 1874, the seventh Sewall in the direct line to receive a degree from Harvard. Mr. Sewall continued for two years, taking a post graduate course and receiving the degree of LL.B. He has entertained many noted people, and among his guests was President Eliot, of Harvard. His father and mother and brother Frederick will arrive to-day from Chicago, and his brother, E.D. Sewall, will come tomorrow from Milwaukee, and a sister from Connecticut. The funeral will probably be held Thursday.
The Indianapolis Literary Club, at its meeting last night, took informal action on the death of Mr. Sewall. A suitable memorial will be prepared. The club will be represented at the funeral. The Indianapolis Journal, 24 December, 1895.6

Rev. Thomas Sewall1

M, #1052, b. 28 April 1818, d. 11 August 1870
     Rev. Thomas Sewall was born on 28 April 1818 in Georgetown, District of Columbia.2,3 He was the son of Dr. Thomas Sewall and Mary Choate.2 Rev. Thomas Sewall married Julia Elizabeth Waters, daughter of Freeborn Garrettson Waters and Matilda Stevenson, on 19 November 1844 in Baltimore, Maryland.4 Rev. Thomas Sewall died on 11 August 1870 in his residence at Druid Hill Avenue, Baltimore, at the age of 52, of consumption.5 Despite his death Rev. Thomas Sewall appears on the census of 6 October 1870.6

The Rev. Thomas Sewall, D.D. an eminent Methodist minister, formerly in charge of the Pacific street M.E. Church, in this city, died on Thursday night at his residence, Druid Hill avenue, Baltimore.
Dr. Sewall was about fifty years of age, and was born in Essex county, Mass. His father was a very celebrated physician, having been twice sent to Europe as Medical Commissioner by the Government of the United States. He resided and practiced medicine for many years at Washington. The mother of Rev. Dr. Sewall was a sister of the Hon. Rufus Choate, of Massachusetts, Dr. Sewall was educated at the Methodist Seminary at Middletown, Connecticut, under the celebrated Wilbur Flake, and soon after his graduation entered the church, in which he officiated for over thirty years. With the exception of three years ministration in the Brooklyn Conference he always had the charge of pastorates in the Baltimore Conference. (He was a one time Presiding Elder of that Conference, and had been at many of its churches, mainly at Charles street and Union Square. In 1868 he was removed to the Brooklyn Conference and was assigned to the Pacific street Church. There he remained three years, and was obliged to retire from the ministry while in the full exercise of all his splendid abilities on account of the loss of his voice. The sorrow which this calamity occasioned to the Methodist Church was only second to that which will be felt on account of his death. It prevented him from ever again assuming the active duties of the ministry, and since then he has remained at home in Baltimore. As a pulpit orator he always held the close attention of a congregation by his brilliant expressions of thought, and the easy and graceful delivery of the language In which they were couched. His ministrations were attended with great success, and he was distinguished for the liberality of his opinions.
Dr. Sewall married a daughter of the late Freeborn G. Waters, of Baltimore, and leaves a wife and four minor children. The funeral took place from Charles street Church on Saturday afternoon.7

     Thomas Barry Sewall was born on 21 December 1924 in Calgary.1 He was the son of Chadwick "Bud" Irving Sewall and Gladys Isabella Paul.2 Thomas Barry Sewall died on 15 October 2014 in Medicine Hat, Alberta, at the age of 89.1

Thomas Barry Sewall      
It is with great sadness that the family of Dr. Tom Sewall announces his passing on Wednesday, October 15th, 2014 in Medicine Hat at the age of 89 years. Tom was born on December 21st, 1924 in Calgary. Tom graduated in 1951 from the Ontario Veterinary College in Guelph and had a successful large animal veterinary practice in Brooks and the surrounding area for over forty years. He was recognized by his colleagues as the Veterinarian of the Year in 1990. Tom was also involved with the community of Brooks in several ways: he was a volunteer fireman, an active member of the Kinsmen for over forty years and served on the town planning council. In 2006, Tom was honored as the Parade Marshall where he proudly represented the veterans while waving from the top of an armored vehicle. While all of these accomplishments portray a picture of a successful businessman who supported his community in many ways, what was most important to Tom was his family. He loved the family dinners and get-togethers at Lake Newell and never passed up an opportunity to come out for a barbeque, especially if there was dessert on the menu. Tom was especially proud of his grandchildren and his eyes lit up whenever they dropped by for a visit. In his spare time, Tom loved to garden. He also had a pilot’s license and was a longstanding member of the Brooks Flying Club. The town of Brooks and the rural community have lost a gentleman with a smile for everyone and a great attitude no matter what challenges life had to offer. Per his request, there will be a private service for family. He leaves to mourn his loving wife of sixty-one years, Betty Sewall, and his sons Brad (Kim) and John (Teresa), of Calgary. He is also survived by his grandchildren Nicole (Kevin) Dwyer, Fraser Sewall and Lindsay Sewall. Tom will be missed by his sister Bernye of Nanaimo, as well as many nieces and nephews.1

Thomas Colby Waters Sewall1

M, #1373, b. 11 November 1850, d. 13 June 1927
     Thomas Colby Waters Sewall was born on 11 November 1850 in Baltimore ?, Maryland.2,3 He was the son of Rev. Thomas Sewall and Julia Elizabeth Waters.4 In 1900 he was a mine superintendent at Elizabethtown, New Mexico.5 Probably the Thomas C. Sewall who died on 13 June 1927 in Los Angeles, California, at the age of 76.6

Captain Thomas C. Sewell, Elizabethtown, New Mexico, is identified with the mining interests of this place. Captain Sewell first came to the Territory of New Mexico in 1892, and at that time bought six claims in Last Chance Gulch. Previous to this he had been at Cripple Creek. After remaining here a short time he returned to that place, and it was not until 1897 that he came again to Elizabethtown and took up his residence here. At present he is superintending the construction of a tunnel known as the Isabella B., for Homer C. Chapin, of Chicago, who owns claims or options on all land the tunnel will tap. For eighteen months the work has been under way and the tunnel now extends a thousand feet into the mountain. It has crossed numerous rich veins of ore and the prospects are bright for a rich mine when the railroad is built in the valley.
His own claims that he purchased in 1892 Captain Sewell still owns and contemplates developing as soon as railroad facilities and a mill are brought to the locality. Pacific States Publishing Co. History of New Mexico: its resources and people (Volume 2), p. 958.
