      "REMINISCENCES OF SAMUEL SEYBOLD, Esq."
      (Samuel is the son of Jasper & Rebekah's son Robert)  (Note, this article is copied into the book "History of Madison County, Illinois", pub 1882, p. 77.)
      " .... In the latter part of the 16th century there lived a boy by the name of Jasper Seybold, on the river Rhine in Germany, when born is not known.  In the year 1717 he married a German girl .... In 1718 they had a son born, and called his name Jasper Seybold, Jr.  He was my grandfather.  My great grandfather lived to have sons and daughters.  In 1732, the year Geo. Washington was born, he concluded to go west to the New World, called North America.  They took shipping at Amsterdam, on a small ship which was over-crowded with emigrants. They had a long voyage, the water became scarce and the provisions stale, which caused a pestilence on board, which killed all the Seybolds, except Jasper, Jr., my grandfather.  The ship finally sailed into the Chesapeake Bay, and landed at or near a place called Dumfries.
      The captain of the ship bound my grandfather to a planter for seven years for his passage.  There was a girl named Alcey Clendening, of Scotch descent, also bound to a tailor for her passage.  They both became free about the same time.  They concluded to marry, and in 1740 went on a claim to which they were entitled to, 400 acres of land by the laws of Virginia, which was selected at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountain, now in the county of Louden, where they baked their first hoe-cake on a flat stone for want of other culinary conveniences.  On this claim they lived to have twelve sons and two daughters .........lies, except one girl and two sons.  My father, Robt. Seybold, born March 12th, 1760, was the youngest of these sons, nine of whom drew pensions for services in the Revolutionary War, and I have never known one of the name disloyal, convicted of a crime, or to become rich.
      ==================================================================
      Shirley Rodgers Hart questions some of the above in her paper "Jasper Seybold and Rebekah Clendennen" written August 4th 1987.  She says (1) The Seybolds did not remove to Virginia until at least 1754 and (2) Quaker records list only 8 sons and 2 daughters.  A Joseph Seybold is listed, but he is not listed as a son.  (3) Robert Seybold was not the youngest son and (4) no record has been found showing that any of the sons drew a pension for Revolutionary War service.
      ==================================================================
      One researcher,  Edith Lucile (Stewart) Vennin, 4th great granddaughter of Jasper and Rebekah, in the LDS Archives states that both Jasper and Rebekah were born in Bavaria.
      ==================================================================
      On page 698-9 of the Goose Creek Monthly Meeting, VA, under the  name SEYBOLD are the following notes:
      "Alice (now HARRISON) reported guilty of fornication and married out of unity with him who is now her husband 29-12-1794 having removed far away she is disowned.

      "Jesse "steals watermelons" 25-9-1784 disowned 27-5-1786 "after long care".
      "John and wife Hannah (CRANMER) Seybold and their two children Sarah and Rebekah removed granted certificate to Wrightstown (Wrightsboro) Monthly Meeting GA (note, no records in GA, suspect Wrightstown MM PA was meant).
      "Rebecca South Fork Preparative Meeting informs that she is in unfortunate circumstances and in need of assistance.  At the meeting held in 1mo-1799  the Men Friends directed that assistance be given her as her needs may require 24-12-1798.
      "Robert of South Fork Preparative Meeting reported by that meeting as "guilty of fornication" he denies it  At the meeting held 27-4-1786 is the following minute  Robert SEYBOLD of South Fork PM who was reported as "guilty of fornication" by that meeting on 27-2-1786 (which he denied) "having some time since removed over the Allegany Mountains and nothing having been heard from him since is now disowned.
      =====================================================
      On page 559 of the Fairfax Monthly Meeting, VA, under the  name SEYBOLD are the following notes:
      "This name is written in several ways in Fairfax and Goose Creek Records and Minutes; but usually SEYBOLD; but sometimes SYBOLT, SIEBOLD and SIBBALD.  Burke's British Heraldry lists the name as SIBBALD off Aberdeen, Scotland, and lists several different Coats of Arms for this family, all SCOTCH.  In these Quaker records, Jasper is sometimes written Casper and Gasper; but it is clear that the correct name is JASPER SEYBOLD ..... New Garden MM, PA, records as SYBOLT....
