Seth Swift Serat

Seth Swift Serat was born in the town of Dunkirk, New York, November 14, 1863.  His parents removed to Elmira, N. Y., during his youth, and there he grew to manhood.  His education was received in the public and high schools of Elmira, and the finishing touch was provided by a course in Cornell University.

     In 1882 he returned to Elmira and engaged in the coal business, in which he has continuously been ever since. 

     Mr. Serat left Elmira in 1888 and came to Kansas City, where he established himself in the wholesale coal business, and has been a prominent figure in the commercial, social, and club life of the town.

     He is now president of the Star Coal Company, which owns and operated mines near Lexington, Mo.

     Mr. Serat is a member of the Kansas City Club, the University Club, and Kansas City Driving Club, and also belongs to the Psi Ipsilon Fraternity.

     He married Miss Marion Hall, of Lockport, N. Y., in 1901.
