Born in Barnet, Caledonia County, Vermont. Moved to New York in 1853. Employed as the agent for Fairbanks Scales. Father of T. R. Strobridge. He began as a coin dealer about 1860. He conducted auction sales at Bangs Merwin from 1861 to 1869 and at George Leavitt & Co. from 1870 to 1876. He conducted 28 auction sales 1862 to 1878. His eyesight began to fail. The condition was aggravated by the fine work required to examine coins. His final sale was the Stenz collection. He went totally blind in November 1876. Later sales were cataloged by T. R. Strobridge. Eight more sales were conducted by T. R. 1878 to 1879.

Strobridge sold his collection of ancient coins to Lilliendahl.

    A descriptive catalogue of the Seavey collection of American coins the property of Lorin G. Parmelee.

    This was intended as an auction catalog of the Seavey collection, which was purchased en bloc by Lorin G. Parmelee prior to a public sale. The cataloger (W. H. Strobridge) felt that publication of the catalog was still useful for posterity, and so this volume was issued in 1873.
