On 19 Dec 1927 he is listed as a passenger on the SS New York returning to the US. The ship sailed from Hamburg.
His US residence is listed as Galen Hall, Wernersville, PA.
On the Hamburg emigration list for the same ship, it states that his residence was Kopenhagen. Therefore, I would assume he had been living in Denmark for a while.
Galen Hall in Wernersville, PA was a fancy resort hotel (now a golf course & restaurant).
I have been unable to find him after his arrival back in the US in 1927.
Susannah: He had the same adress as Joseph and Anna Nelson (Galen Hall) Is it possible they travelled together? Were they working there? Was it a private residence?
It was common for the Swedes to travel to US from Copenhagen so probably he went to Sweden from Denmark and stayed for some time (relatives?)
I would recommend sending a FOIA request to the Department of State for Carl's 1927 passport records. Include a copy of his death record (or - since you don't have it, a copy of his birth record to prove he was born more than 100 years ago), and either notarize the request or send it under penalty of perjury. Note also that if you don't restrict your request to just the 1927 passport, perhaps they'll find other passport records that could suggest that he left the country permanently after returning in 1927...
If you are seeking passport related information or a copy of some else’s passport records without authorization from that person, this is considered a FOIA request, and you may mail your request directly to Passport Services at the address below, or send your FOIA request by email to PPT-Public-FOIARequests@state.gov . Please note that if you wish to receive a certified or apostilled copy of any passport or consular records, a consular service fee will be assessed by the Bureau of Consular Affairs, and your request must be mailed along with the required fee to:
U.S. Department of State

I would assume they were traveling together. Galen Hall was a hotel/resort and I assume they were going there to work. I was able to trace Joseph and Anna Nelson and they were hotel workers (generally in upscale hotels or resorts) and they moved frequently both inside and outside the US. I could not find any additional records for Carl Seaberg and suspect that he may have moved on to another hotel outside of the US and probably died outside the US.
Dear Ms. Mossberg,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We suggest that you search the New York City Directories (1786 through 1934) for Carl Lawrence Seaberg as well as browse the New York State Death Index and search by name in the Social Security Death Index. In addition, we suggest that you search Chronicling America: Historic American Newspapers and FamilySearch.com as well as searching unofficial sites such as findagrave.com for mention of Carl Lawrence Seaberg.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your family research!
Welcome to History Hub
I couldn't find the 1920 census that you mentioned, can you post a copy of that or give the name of his
mother and sister. Would make it easier to search if you could give more information. Thanks
