Wildwood encompasses multiple cemeteries or designated burial grounds across a large tract of land and includes some historical burial grounds, like the Mound Cemetery. Seth Thomas McCormick was trained to the work of a farmer and lumberman, and devoted himself to these pursuits until he was more than forty years old. In 1861 he moved his family to Williamsport and entered the office of W. W. Willard, Esq., for the purpose of studying law. In 1863 he was admitted to the bar of Lycoming County. He built up for himself a large and lucrative practice, and after a few years associated himself with his son, Henry Clay McCormick, thus forming the firm of S. T. & H. C. McCormick, which occupied a place in the front rank of the legal profession. Seth McCormick was many times elected a member of the common council, during which service his influence was always exerted in behalf of honest municipal government. He was the compiler of the book of the charter, laws and ordinances of the city of Williamsport, and nearly every ordinance of the city was drafted by his hand.
