      John Zebulon Seybold was born in Illinois and traveled with his father to Texas around 1883 and then to Indian Territory in 1890. Like his eldest sister, Idumea, he was given a Biblical name -- Zebulun was the sixth child born to Leah, wife of Jacob, and is the name of one of the twelve tribes of Israel.  Or, perhaps he was named for Colonel Zebulon Pike who led the first American exploration of the newly acquired Colorado territory in 1806.  (Pike's peak was named for him.)
      Zeb worked as a barber in Oklahoma and wrote songs as a sideline. He was a talented musician who played the violin and the saxophone. He was also a music publisher and a member of the A.M.P. of A.  Some of the songs he wrote are "Poutin Pa-Pa Blues", "Honey in the Roses" and "Sweet Mother".  Worked as a barber (had a shop in Ada).  Played the violin and won state competition one year.  Also composed music. On his sheet music, his address is listed as 217 W. Main, Ada, Oklahoma. He was at this address in April, 1926 as I have a letter written by him, on a piece of sheet music, giving that address.
      Ada Weekly News (Ada, OK), Oct. 7, 1926 is an ad: "Suits, dresses called for and delivered.  Phone 665.  John Seybolt in Zeb's Barber shop. A song free with hair bob, 25 cents."
      His daughter, Doris, remembered that, as a teenager, she stopped by the shop one day and it appeared that there was no one there.  She went to the back of the shop where the room was partitioned off for a small area (mostly meant for a bathroom).  She heard a noise and peeked, not saying a word.  She had found her father and the others with their musical instruments cramped into this tiny backroom partition playing music.  One of them would start out in a melody and the others joined them.  When a tune ended, without a word, another musician would start another melody and the others joined in.  Doris said that her father truly enjoyed playing music with his friends. She found their absolute silence between songs incredible.
      There are three songs listed under the author Zeb Seybold in WorldCat -- "If you are the one I've so long been chasing, then you will be a pleasure to me", copyright 1923; "Honey, I'm a-leavin' : You, an' you jus' leave me alone : Piano accpt. Len Fleming", c 1926 and "Come on let's do that, Adam did" c. 1927.
      All three are listed with the British Library Reference Collections, Wetherby, W Yorkshire, LS23 7BQ United Kingdom.
      As of May 1998, Polos Embassy, a Mexican Restaurant, is in the original building where Zeb's barbershop was located.  They have added on to it but that side of town is the original town site and has many of the old buildings.
      In the 1910 census, he is living in Konawa with his son John in the household of Martin and Theo Harris, his niece and nephew-in-law. On September 9, 1918, he petitions for guardianship of his eldest sister, Idumea Moore, who is listed as incompetent due to insanity. His guardianship is granted September 19, 1918  The last record of this guardianship we can find is in February of 1923.
      I have copies of two of his published songs: "Honey in the Roses" a waltz, and a fox trot, "Pouting Papa (Mama) Blues" both (c) 1925.
      His daughter, Doris, told me (12-31-1997) that he was a soft-spoken, easy-going man who learned to play the violin out alone in the corn fields.  On 4-21-1998, Irma, his oldest daughter, told me that he was dark complected but that she didn't think he was Indian.
      His obituary Ada Evening News, August 26, 1940, pg. 2 col. 5 reads:
      Zeb Seybold Taken by Death Saturday
      Short Illness Is Fatal To Well-Known Musician In Area
      Funeral services were held Sunday afternoon for John Zebilon (sic) (Zeb) Seybold, who died Saturday in a local hospital following a short illness.  The Rev. Milo Arbuckle, pastor of the Oak Avenue Baptist Church, was in charge of the services.  Burial was in Memorial Park Cemetery.
      Mr. Seybold was proprietor of Zeb's Barber Shop on West Main street and had been a resident of Ada 30 years.  He was 61 years old and a native of Illinois.  Mr. Seybold was widely known in Amateur musical circles as a violinist, saxophonist, and orchestra leader.
      Several times during the past quarter of a century he organized orchestras and provided entertainment for dances and other social functions.  He published more than twenty-five songs, some of which were widely played and sung in this section.  He composed some seventy-five other songs which never have been published.
      Surviving are his wife, Mrs. Ollie Seybold; two daughters, Doris and Erma; and one son, John Seybold, all of Ada.
      Zeb's probate papers list Ollie Seybold, administratrix.  John Seybold, Doris Walters, and Irma Seybold, children of the deceased, waive rights to be administrator.
      A paper, dated February 9, 1942, lists his heirs as John Seybold of Ada, OK, age 37; Irma Seybold of Oklahoma City, age 23; and Doris Walters of Ada, age 18.  (per Linda Worstell.)

    • Doris Seybold, (Zeb's daughter) said that her father never talked of his family.  Hazel Cloud (Lizzie's daughter) wrote in November 1997 that "mama never discussed her family with us."
      A Warranty Deed of October 19, 1870 signed by Jasper N. Seybold and his wife, Henry Etta Seybold, in Sciota township, McDonough county, Illinois deeding land to his brother, John R. Seybold, for the amount of $159.18.
      1870 McDonough County, Illinois census data (from Linda Worstell), Sciota township, p. 25, shows:
      J.R. SEYBOLD, age 38, grocer, born IL
      Amanda J. SEYBOLD, age 24, born KY
      Idonialila (sic) SEYBOLD, age 3, born IL
      Vitua (sic) SEYBOLD, age 5-1/2, born IL
      1880 McDonough County, Illinois census data, Sciota township, p. 5, shows:

      John SEYBOLD,  S,  M,  1,  IL,  At Home, IL, IL
      From these, the birth order of J.R. and Amanda's children is confirmed, Amanda's middle initial is shown to be "J", and their birth dates can be approximated.
      List of taxable lots for 1880 and 1881 shows that John R. Seybold paid taxes on lots 1, 2, and 3 at the North end of Buel Street on the West side and, in 1882, he paid taxes on one lot and part of another.
      "Macomb Journal", Thursday, June 17, 1882: "Thomas Head has bought the store building of J.R. Seybold."  And, in the December issue, the notice "Mr. Thomas Head has purchased the Seybold property, and will move to town in the Spring."
      "Sciota news items:  John R. Seybold has gone on a prospecting tour through the Southwest.  John has been a long time getting started, but now he has gone -- he means business."
      "Sciota items:  J.R. Seybold and C. Moschel shipped their goods to Texas, last week.  Their families start in a few days."
      After living in Texas for 6 years, J.R. sold his business to his friend, Christian Moschel, and moved his family again, in the fall of 1889, to Ardmore, Indian Territory and opened a general store there.  It is suspected that J.R. died soon after arriving in I.T.  In Idema's petition for citizenship in the Cherokee Nation in August of 1896, she notes that he is deceased but no date is given.  He (or Amanda after his death) purportedly owned the JR Cattle Ranch close to Antlers and Kiamichi, Oklahoma.  Idema said, in her petition to the 1896 Dawes Commission, that he was a Cherokee Indian, but many of her supporting statements appear to be either mistaken or blatantly false.
      On April 7, 1926, his son, Zeb Seybold, wrote the following to a Mr. Emmett Seybold in Macomb Illinois on a piece of sheet music he'd published:
      "My father ran a store at Sciota, Ill. for 15 years and his name was John Robert Seybold.  He had a brother named George.  My mother was born in Ky.  Her name was Amanda Welch.  She had one relation in Ill. named Sylvester Welch.  Do you know of any of these folks and write me their address & names .....  P.S. I run a Barbershop, music is just a sideline only."
      In a letter dated March 8, 1885 from Chatfield Texas, J.R. Seybold writes:
      "Margret Foot
      "Dear Cousin
      "Yours received, & noted. Was glad to hear from you.  We are all well & hope this will find you enjoying the same blessing.  I expect from accounts we have had here, that it has been very cold north.  The winter has been colder than usual here, but the winters here would not be called cold north.  It seldom freezes hard enough to stop the plow. I have two renters on my place; they have planted their corn.  I expect to commence planting in the morning.  This will give you an idea of the difference between this climate, & where you are.  I am farming but do not expect to farm longer than this season, if circumstances favors going into the mercantile business.  The crop was not good here last season, money matters are close here.  Now is a good time to buy land here.  Land is steadly (sic) increasing in value here, & is a good investment.  They generaly (sic) have prety (sic) good schools here, but of course not so well fited (sic) up, as in older states.  The people here are generaly (sic) kind, & clever.  We have as a (????) Illinoians, Indianians, Kentuckians, Alabamians, Tenneseeans (sic), & some from other States, but few of Texians.  It is best for persons from the North to come here about the 1st of Octo, the change is too great in climate to come in the Spring.  Now since I left Ills, I have not heard any thing about the Canada money, left there by Silus Seybold.  It is very strange to me that nothing of a definite nature can be learned of it.  There is something wrong somwhere (sic).  Write to John Coffman & see if they have heard out anything
      "Now as to this country, it is not as fertile a Soil as Ills, compared with the part where we lived, but compared with a majority of the States, it is a fine soil and excels.  The climate far surpa??? Ills.  I would not live in as cold a climate as Ills.  I am not far from a 150 miles South of the North Texas line, & Sometimes I wish I was further South.  There is a good place adjoining me, that's for Sale it belongs to heirs.  Three are not of age yet.  They intend getting a ????? from court to sell it.  It (sic) think it will come in this fall.  If I had the money I would buy it.  Tell aunt Hatie (??). She is old to change climate, but it might be beneficial to her, but do not come before about the 1st of Oct.  The familys best respects to you all, my best respects you all, hoping to hear from you soon.  Bro, George is talking of selling out, if he sells I look for him here this fall, May the Lord watch over us all for good is my prayer.
      Farewell, write soon,
      J.R. Seybold."
      In January, 1889, J.R. sold some land to Christian Moschel, recorded in the Navarro county courthouse.
      Another letter is written to Margaret Foote by J.R. from Rice, Texas in March, 1890.  The envelope is postmarked "RICE, TEX. (date illegible)" on one side and "DECORRA, ILL  Mar 6, 1890" on the other. It is addressed to:
      "Margret A. Foote
      "Tecoria, Henderson, Co,
      The stationery is printed:
      "Rice, Texas, ___________
      "To | C. MOSCHEL, | Dr"
      "Dry Goods, Groceries, Hardware, Harness and General Merchandise"
      The name "Moschel" and the word "harness" have been marked through to make the heading read:
      "J.R. Seybold, Dealer in Dry Goods, Groceries, Hardware, and General Merchandise."
      He had written, in smaller writing, in the upper left hand corner of the stationery:
      "It has been a very warm winter here and lots of l__?__  (illness ??), and a good many deaths.  Just now it is cold, the coldest weather we have had this winter.  It turned cold on Thursday night."
      "Rice, Texas, Mar. 2nd, 1890
      "Mrs. Margrett Foote
      "Dear Cousin,
      "Yours of Feb, 25th, 1890, & contents noted, was glad to hear from you, & to hear that you was (sic) all well, & to get information of the relatives, & to hear that Aunt Hatie, your mother was still living, & well, for one of her age, give her my love, & respects, & hope that she may live many years yet, & a __??__ providence yet permit us to again, & if not permitted to meet again in this world, grant that we meet again in the heavenly paradise where parting, & Sorrow will be no more.  Since in Texas (?), I have heard nothing of Aunt Alley, or of any of her folks, I wrote a letter since here (sic) to John Coffman, bur received no answer -- I don't know whether he got it, or not, neither have I heard anything of Uncle Dodson & his folks, don't know whether he is still living or not.  Would be glad to know of both.
      "Now Margritt, you speak of looking after that money in Canada, deposited there by grandfather Jesse Seybolds, brother Silas Seybold for Jesse Seybold our grandfather or his heirs, as supposed.  Now Margritt, to tell you the truth I know but very little about it, I know what has been said, & I am satisfied, that Silas Seybold made a deposit there, but whether it is just for Jesse Seybold & his heirs or not, I don't know,  Now Fredrick Seybold informed me, that a good many ago, there was a Seybold, --------------------------- into --- log------------, & swam the river St. larence (sic) into Canada, to save his life, deposited in Montreal $140,000.00 for a brother, at a bank rate of 3 per cent now we know that Silas Seybold was the man -------------------------------------------------------- swam the river St. laurence (sic) into Canada to save his life, & also he never returned, but staid (sic) there, & died intestate, that is he had no heirs, & it is reasonable to infer that if he made a deposit, it was for Jesse Seybold & heirs, for those two brothers were disinherited by Jasper Seybold, their father.  Now in the year 1830, I think it was, that uncle Dodson, & ????? uncle Robert, learned from I think Daniel(?) Seybold in Indiana, that Silas Seybold was still living, & was very rich.  In the winter of 1870, & 1871, if I remember correctly, I was at Wheaton 25 miles N.W. from Chicago, I learned there from the (Wheaton ???) Seybold that about 6 years before that he got a lawyer in Chicago, to investigate this matter, & found a deposit of money, in the Bank Montreal (sic), Montreal Canada, for W. (or could be an "a") Seybold, that it was not for any of his family, beyond this he would not tell me who it was put in by, who it was put in for, when it was put in, or how much was put in, notwithstanding I had a letter from him stating that he new (sic) who put it in, who it was put it in for, when it was put in, & how much was put in, but his excuse that he had forgotten, & the letter was lost, that would show how it was.  Guess it seemed with all the parties who I confered (sic) with, who seemed to know anything, that there was a disposition to cover up & keep back what they new.  In my investigations, I was told by James Seybold that this money was put in the Bank about four years before his death, Jim, might give you some valuable information.  Now Margitt, this money I am satisfied will be hard to get all money deposited in a government Bank in Canada or England, in 100 years if not claimed reverts to the English government, hence it is to their interest to cover all such deposits  Hence in my view, there is but one way to get at it, that is to go to Canada, have the records of the Bank searched by an officer, or employ a good detective to work it up, for a conditional amount of the money if successful, let it not be known only to him, what you are after.  An American detective would probably be the best, I think there is a record also, of all deaths ??? there.  If you go there, & have the records searched, I do not think it necessary to go back beyond the year 1825, for he was alive in 1830, & deposit the money some four years before his death.  I sent uncle Toms money back to him, I am now packed up to move to Ardmore, I.T.  If you write to me, that will be my place of address, ........................... (last four lines mostly unreadable -- and page dog-eared over some text) .......lect, hence have .............. the information I .... & will allow you out of my part (hard to read) if, you are successful, my ..... part of, all expenses.  If you do undertake that, I hope .....ill be successful, but you must be very careful, & cautious for it is take shrewed work to get it."
      "....ell, write soon, Yours Truly, J.R. Seybold
      Note the picture of his store in Ardmore has the date "May A.D. 1890" written on the top of the facade, so he must have moved shortly after writing this letter.
      11-4-1997 Aunt Hazel said that after J.R. died Amanda bought the ranch and then became ill with TB, sold the ranch for money for medical expenses and, while asleep on her pillow, Herman stole the money from under her pillow.  Because of her sickness and death and the loss of their money, the younger children were orphaned and passed from family to family and got no education.  Bill Cloud is said to have taken orphans in to live with him and to work in his house. Supposedly, he took in Lizzie, as she was working for him when she met Jake Cloud.  Did he also take in Zeb and Lena?
      1890 Census Chickasaw Nation I.T. Book 2 Pickens Co.
      Seybold, J.R. and wife  #29180
      J.R. is 58  3 male children  3 female children  Ardmore PO  8 Total in Family
      The female children were Idumea, 23; Vitura, 18;  Lena, 10; and Lizzie, 7 -- and perhaps Elma.  Who were the three female children in the household?  Obviously, Lena and Lizzie, the youngest, were there. So who was the third?  Idumea's 1896 Cherokee citizenship application implies that she did not marry until after that date.  It's possible Vitura was already married (but she's listed as single and living with her mother in 1900).  If Elmer/Elma was a female child, this further complicates the issue (there was no one by this name on the 1880 census, so he/she would have to be less than 10 years old).
      Their male children were:  Herman 17, Theodore 15, Zeb 11 and Theodore may have already died by this date.  This accounts for the three males, but where are Arthur and Elmer/Elma?  Previous censuses imply that they were either dead or born after Zeb and before Lizzie, the youngest.  If Theodore was gone by then, Arthur could be the third male.
      J.R. was listed as age 38 in ILL 1870 census, 49 in the ILL 1880 census, and 58 in the 1890 Chickasaw Nation, Indian Territory, Pickens County census making him born about 1831 or 1832.
      The Oklahoma land rushes were taking place in the 1890 to 1895 time frame.  Perhaps J.R. participated in one of these?
      We know J.R. was dead by 1896 from Idema's Cherokee citizenship application and certainly by 1900 from the census in that year sent by Jenny Garner> (below).
      1900 Chickasaw Nation, Indian Territory  Township 4 North Range 6 East ED 120 Sheet 27  Line 31 (dated June 23, 1900).

      T 4 N R 6 E would be the area around Ada (in present Pontotoc Co.).  Using an old map dated 1899 showing Chickasaw Nation, the square would include Ada (in center bottom); Hird (or Hurd -- can't read word on map) almost in the center; and Oakman inside but almost at the border of square on the upper right.  The area includes Ada, but most of it is north of Ada.  Ada was a booming town during that time.
      Note that Amanda's (or whoever talked to the census  taker) statement of seven children differs from Lillian's and Hazel's assertion that their mother (Lizzy) said her mother (Amanda) had nine children.  Also, this could well imply that there was no Elmer or Arthur.  If five children were living, and four are listed above, what about Idema and Herman?  We know Idema lived until at least 1923, so this must mean Herman was dead by this time?  Both aunts Lillian and Hazel and cousin Dardenelle remember grandmother Lizzy saying that Herman stole the money from their mother while she was dying so he must have died soon after -- before his mother died.  This could also mean that Amanda died soon after the 1900 census.  The fact that Lizzy's birth month is not listed and the year is wrong, and Amanda's parents' birthplaces are listed as "UNK" may be a clue that the information was given by someone other than Amanda who didn't have all the facts straight.  Perhaps Amanda was ill at that time with the tuberculosis that killed her and someone else gave the information to the census taker?
      (The Chickasaw Nation included all or part of the following twelve present day counties: Bryan, Carter, Garvin, Grady, Jefferson, Johnston, Love, McClain, Marshall, Murray, Pontotoc and Stephens.)
      According to volume III of CEMETERY INSCRIPTIONS OF CARTER COUNTY, OKLAHOMA, which includes Rose Hill Cemetery in Ardmore, it says "In checking a number of different sources it appears there were two other older, or at least as old, cemeteries in Ardmore.  The remains from at least one of these cemeteries were removed to Rose Hill prior to statehood (1907).  One source says around 1895 and another says about the turn of the century.  A check of the 1895 newspapers did not reveal any stories concerning a cemetery move.  Rose Hill was opened for burial in 1895 and once called South Cemetery."
      The book "INDIAN TERRITORY AND CARTER COUNTY PIONEERS" says "In April 1895, the largest fire in the history of Ardmore started in Harper's Livery Stable on North Caddo.  Due to high winds, the fire spread rapidly to the back of the stores on Main Street ... several merchants were uninsured."  Perhaps J.R.'s store was destroyed then? Perhaps he died in the fire?
      In a letter dated 2-21-1997, Aunt Hazel (Cloud) Brown wrote of their family: "1. Herman, no children; 2. Iduma, no children; 3. Theodore, died young; 4. Arthur, no children; 5. Zebulon, four children: John, Lyn, Irma; 6. Lena, no children; 7. Vitura, one daughter, Theo Harris, married to Martha Harris children Opal, Winfred, Arthur, Allen, they had oil wells, last account of them they were in Sulphur, Oklahoma; 8. Elizabeth - mother and had ten children."
      On 2-23-1998, aunt Hazel said "momma said her mother had 9 kids".  Though I can find no evidence of either Elmer/Elma or Arthur, Hazel's recollection lends credibility to their having been children of Amanda and J.R.
