    Notes 
    • -
      John Zebulon Seybold was born in Illinois and traveled with his father t
      o Texas around 1883 and then to Indian Territory in 1890. Like his elde
      st sister, Idumea, he was given a Biblical name -- Zebulun was the sixt
      h child born to Leah, wife of Jacob, and is the name of one of the twel
      ve tribes of Israel.  Or, perhaps he was named for Colonel Zebulon Pike w
      ho led the first American exploration of the newly acquired Colorado te
      rritory in 1806.  (Pike's peak was named for him.)
      Zeb worked as a barber in Oklahoma and wrote songs as a sideline. He wa
      s a talented musician who played the violin and the saxophone. He was a
      lso a music publisher and a member of the A.M.P. of A.  Some of the son
      gs he wrote are "Poutin Pa-Pa Blues", "Honey in the Roses" and "Sweet M
      other".  Worked as a barber (had a shop in Ada).  Played the violin and w
      on 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 a
      ddress in April, 1926 as I have a letter written by him, on a piece of s
      heet music, giving that address.
      Ada Weekly News (Ada, OK), Oct. 7, 1926 is an ad: "Suits, dresses calle
      d for and delivered.  Phone 665.  John Seybolt in Zeb's Barber shop. A s
      ong free with hair bob, 25 cents."
      His daughter, Doris, remembered that, as a teenager, she stopped by the s
      hop one day and it appeared that there was no one there.  She went to t
      he 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 w
      ord.  She had found her father and the others with their musical instru
      ments cramped into this tiny backroom partition playing music.  One of t
      hem would start out in a melody and the others joined them.  When a tun
      e ended, without a word, another musician would start another melody an
      d the others joined in.  Doris said that her father truly enjoyed playi
      ng music with his friends. She found their absolute silence between son
      gs 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 ple
      asure to me", copyright 1923; "Honey, I'm a-leavin' : You, an' you jus' l
      eave me alone : Piano accpt. Len Fleming", c 1926 and "Come on let's do t
      hat, Adam did" c. 1927.
      http://www.worldcat.org/search?q=au%3A%22Seybold%2C+Zeb.%22&qt=hot_auth
      or
      All three are listed with the British Library Reference Collections, We
      therby, W Yorkshire, LS23 7BQ United Kingdom.
      As of May 1998, Polos Embassy, a Mexican Restaurant, is in the original b
      uilding where Zeb's barbershop was located.  They have added on to it b
      ut that side of town is the original town site and has many of the old b
      uildings.
      In the 1910 census, he is living in Konawa with his son John in the hou
      sehold of Martin and Theo Harris, his niece and nephew-in-law. On Septe
      mber 9, 1918, he petitions for guardianship of his eldest sister, Idume
      a Moore, who is listed as incompetent due to insanity. His guardianship i
      s granted September 19, 1918  The last record of this guardianship we c
      an find is in February of 1923.
      I have copies of two of his published songs: "Honey in the Roses" a wal
      tz, 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, ea
      sy-going man who learned to play the violin out alone in the corn field
      s.  On 4-21-1998, Irma, his oldest daughter, told me that he was dark c
      omplected 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 illn
      ess.  The Rev. Milo Arbuckle, pastor of the Oak Avenue Baptist Church, w
      as 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 h
      ad been a resident of Ada 30 years.  He was 61 years old and a native o
      f Illinois.  Mr. Seybold was widely known in Amateur musical circles as a v
      iolinist, saxophonist, and orchestra leader.
      Several times during the past quarter of a century he organized orchest
      ras and provided entertainment for dances and other social functions.  H
      e published more than twenty-five songs, some of which were widely play
      ed and sung in this section.  He composed some seventy-five other songs w
      hich never have been published.
      Surviving are his wife, Mrs. Ollie Seybold; two daughters, Doris and Er
      ma; and one son, John Seybold, all of Ada.
      Zeb's probate papers list Ollie Seybold, administratrix.  John Seybold, D
      oris Walters, and Irma Seybold, children of the deceased, waive rights t
      o 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 o
      f Ada, age 18.  (per Linda Worstell.)

    Notes 
    • Doris Seybold, (Zeb's daughter) said that her father never talked of hi
      s 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 w
      ife, Henry Etta Seybold, in Sciota township, McDonough county, Illinois d
      eeding land to his brother, John R. Seybold, for the amount of $159.18.

      From these, the birth order of J.R. and Amanda's children is confirmed, A
      manda's middle initial is shown to be "J", and their birth dates can be a
      pproximated.
      List of taxable lots for 1880 and 1881 shows that John R. Seybold paid t
      axes on lots 1, 2, and 3 at the North end of Buel Street on the West si
      de and, in 1882, he paid taxes on one lot and part of another.
      "Macomb Journal", Thursday, June 17, 1882: "Thomas Head has bought the s
      tore building of J.R. Seybold."  And, in the December issue, the notice "
      Mr. Thomas Head has purchased the Seybold property, and will move to to
      wn in the Spring."
      "Sciota news items:  John R. Seybold has gone on a prospecting tour thr
      ough the Southwest.  John has been a long time getting started, but now h
      e has gone -- he means business."
      "Sciota items:  J.R. Seybold and C. Moschel shipped their goods to Texa
      s, 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, t
      o Ardmore, Indian Territory and opened a general store there.  It is su
      spected that J.R. died soon after arriving in I.T.  In Idema's petition f
      or citizenship in the Cherokee Nation in August of 1896, she notes that h
      e is deceased but no date is given.  He (or Amanda after his death) pur
      portedly owned the JR Cattle Ranch close to Antlers and Kiamichi, Oklah
      oma.  Idema said, in her petition to the 1896 Dawes Commission, that he w
      as a Cherokee Indian, but many of her supporting statements appear to b
      e either mistaken or blatantly false.
      On April 7, 1926, his son, Zeb Seybold, wrote the following to a Mr. Em
      mett Seybold in Macomb Illinois on a piece of sheet music he'd publishe
      d:
      "My father ran a store at Sciota, Ill. for 15 years and his name was Jo
      hn Robert Seybold.  He had a brother named George.  My mother was born i
      n Ky.  Her name was Amanda Welch.  She had one relation in Ill. named S
      ylvester Welch.  Do you know of any of these folks and write me their a
      ddress & names .....  P.S. I run a Barbershop, music is just a sideline o
      nly."
      In a letter dated March 8, 1885 from Chatfield Texas, J.R. Seybold writ
      es:
      "Margret Foot
      "Dear Cousin
      "Yours received, & noted. Was glad to hear from you.  We are all well & h
      ope this will find you enjoying the same blessing.  I expect from accou
      nts we have had here, that it has been very cold north.  The winter has b
      een colder than usual here, but the winters here would not be called co
      ld north.  It seldom freezes hard enough to stop the plow. I have two r
      enters on my place; they have planted their corn.  I expect to commence p
      lanting in the morning.  This will give you an idea of the difference b
      etween this climate, & where you are.  I am farming but do not expect t
      o farm longer than this season, if circumstances favors going into the m
      ercantile business.  The crop was not good here last season, money matt
      ers are close here.  Now is a good time to buy land here.  Land is stea
      dly (sic) increasing in value here, & is a good investment.  They gener
      aly (sic) have prety (sic) good schools here, but of course not so well f
      ited (sic) up, as in older states.  The people here are generaly (sic) k
      ind, & clever.  We have as a (????) Illinoians, Indianians, Kentuckians
      , Alabamians, Tenneseeans (sic), & some from other States, but few of T
      exians.  It is best for persons from the North to come here about the 1
      st of Octo, the change is too great in climate to come in the Spring.  N
      ow 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 o
      f a definite nature can be learned of it.  There is something wrong som
      where (sic).  Write to John Coffman & see if they have heard out anythi
      ng
      "Now as to this country, it is not as fertile a Soil as Ills, compared w
      ith 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 woul
      d not live in as cold a climate as Ills.  I am not far from a 150 miles S
      outh of the North Texas line, & Sometimes I wish I was further South.  T
      here is a good place adjoining me, that's for Sale it belongs to heirs.  T
      hree are not of age yet.  They intend getting a ????? from court to sel
      l it.  It (sic) think it will come in this fall.  If I had the money I w
      ould buy it.  Tell aunt Hatie (??). She is old to change climate, but i
      t might be beneficial to her, but do not come before about the 1st of O
      ct.  The familys best respects to you all, my best respects you all, ho
      ping to hear from you soon.  Bro, George is talking of selling out, if h
      e sells I look for him here this fall, May the Lord watch over us all f
      or good is my prayer.
      Farewell, write soon,
      J.R. Seybold."
      In January, 1889, J.R. sold some land to Christian Moschel, recorded in t
      he Navarro county courthouse.
      Another letter is written to Margaret Foote by J.R. from Rice, Texas in M
      arch, 1890.  The envelope is postmarked "RICE, TEX. (date illegible)" o
      n one side and "DECORRA, ILL  Mar 6, 1890" on the other. It is addresse
      d to:
      "Margret A. Foote
      "Tecoria, Henderson, Co,
      "Ills.
      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 m
      ake the heading read:
      "J.R. Seybold, Dealer in Dry Goods, Groceries, Hardware, and General Me
      rchandise."
      He had written, in smaller writing, in the upper left hand corner of th
      e stationery:
      "It has been a very warm winter here and lots of l__?__  (illness ??), a
      nd a good many deaths.  Just now it is cold, the coldest weather we hav
      e 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, & t
      o hear that you was (sic) all well, & to get information of the relativ
      es, & to hear that Aunt Hatie, your mother was still living, & well, fo

      exas (?), I have heard nothing of Aunt Alley, or of any of her folks, I w
      rote 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 o
      f Uncle Dodson & his folks, don't know whether he is still living or no

      "Now Margritt, you speak of looking after that money in Canada, deposit
      ed there by grandfather Jesse Seybolds, brother Silas Seybold for Jesse S
      eybold our grandfather or his heirs, as supposed.  Now Margritt, to tel
      l you the truth I know but very little about it, I know what has been s
      aid, & I am satisfied, that Silas Seybold made a deposit there, but whe
      ther it is just for Jesse Seybold & his heirs or not, I don't know,  No
      w Fredrick Seybold informed me, that a good many ago, there was a Seybo
      ld, --------------------------- into --- log------------, & swam the ri
      ver St. larence (sic) into Canada, to save his life, deposited in Montr
      eal $140,000.00 for a brother, at a bank rate of 3 per cent now we know t
      hat Silas Seybold was the man -----------------------------------------
      --------------- swam the river St. laurence (sic) into Canada to save h
      is life, & also he never returned, but staid (sic) there, & died intest
      ate, that is he had no heirs, & it is reasonable to infer that if he ma
      de a deposit, it was for Jesse Seybold & heirs, for those two brothers w
      ere disinherited by Jasper Seybold, their father.  Now in the year 1830
      , I think it was, that uncle Dodson, & ????? uncle Robert, learned from I t
      hink Daniel(?) Seybold in Indiana, that Silas Seybold was still living, & w
      as very rich.  In the winter of 1870, & 1871, if I remember correctly, I w
      as at Wheaton 25 miles N.W. from Chicago, I learned there from the (Whe
      aton ???) Seybold that about 6 years before that he got a lawyer in Chi
      cago, to investigate this matter, & found a deposit of money, in the Ba
      nk 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 m
      e who it was put in by, who it was put in for, when it was put in, or h
      ow much was put in, notwithstanding I had a letter from him stating tha
      t he new (sic) who put it in, who it was put it in for, when it was put i
      n, & how much was put in, but his excuse that he had forgotten, & the l
      etter was lost, that would show how it was.  Guess it seemed with all t
      he parties who I confered (sic) with, who seemed to know anything, that t
      here was a disposition to cover up & keep back what they new.  In my in
      vestigations, I was told by James Seybold that this money was put in th
      e Bank about four years before his death, Jim, might give you some valu
      able information.  Now Margitt, this money I am satisfied will be hard t
      o get all money deposited in a government Bank in Canada or England, in 1
      00 years if not claimed reverts to the English government, hence it is t
      o their interest to cover all such deposits  Hence in my view, there is b
      ut one way to get at it, that is to go to Canada, have the records of t
      he Bank searched by an officer, or employ a good detective to work it u
      p, for a conditional amount of the money if successful, let it not be k
      nown only to him, what you are after.  An American detective would prob
      ably be the best, I think there is a record also, of all deaths ??? the
      re.  If you go there, & have the records searched, I do not think it ne
      cessary to go back beyond the year 1825, for he was alive in 1830, & de
      posit the money some four years before his death.  I sent uncle Toms mo
      ney back to him, I am now packed up to move to Ardmore, I.T.  If you wr

      Note the picture of his store in Ardmore has the date "May A.D. 1890" w
      ritten on the top of the facade, so he must have moved shortly after wr
      iting this letter.
      11-4-1997 Aunt Hazel said that after J.R. died Amanda bought the ranch a
      nd then became ill with TB, sold the ranch for money for medical expens
      es and, while asleep on her pillow, Herman stole the money from under h
      er pillow.  Because of her sickness and death and the loss of their mon
      ey, the younger children were orphaned and passed from family to family a
      nd got no education.  Bill Cloud is said to have taken orphans in to li
      ve with him and to work in his house. Supposedly, he took in Lizzie, as s
      he was working for him when she met Jake Cloud.  Did he also take in Ze
      b 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 F
      amily
      The female children were Idumea, 23; Vitura, 18;  Lena, 10; and Lizzie, 7 -
      - and perhaps Elma.  Who were the three female children in the househol
      d?  Obviously, Lena and Lizzie, the youngest, were there. So who was th
      e third?  Idumea's 1896 Cherokee citizenship application implies that s
      he did not marry until after that date.  It's possible Vitura was alrea
      dy married (but she's listed as single and living with her mother in 19
      00).  If Elmer/Elma was a female child, this further complicates the is
      sue (there was no one by this name on the 1880 census, so he/she would h
      ave to be less than 10 years old).
      Their male children were:  Herman 17, Theodore 15, Zeb 11 and Theodore m
      ay have already died by this date.  This accounts for the three males, b
      ut where are Arthur and Elmer/Elma?  Previous censuses imply that they w
      ere either dead or born after Zeb and before Lizzie, the youngest.  If T
      heodore 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 c
      ensus making him born about 1831 or 1832.
      The Oklahoma land rushes were taking place in the 1890 to 1895 time fra
      me.  Perhaps J.R. participated in one of these?
      We know J.R. was dead by 1896 from Idema's Cherokee citizenship applica
      tion and certainly by 1900 from the census in that year sent by Jenny G

      1900 Chickasaw Nation, Indian Territory  Township 4 North Range 6 East E
      D 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.).  Us
      ing an old map dated 1899 showing Chickasaw Nation, the square would in
      clude Ada (in center bottom); Hird (or Hurd -- can't read word on map) a
      lmost in the center; and Oakman inside but almost at the border of squa
      re on the upper right.  The area includes Ada, but most of it is north o
      f Ada.  Ada was a booming town during that time.
      Note that Amanda's (or whoever talked to the census  taker) statement o
      f seven children differs from Lillian's and Hazel's assertion that thei
      r mother (Lizzy) said her mother (Amanda) had nine children.  Also, thi
      s could well imply that there was no Elmer or Arthur.  If five children w
      ere living, and four are listed above, what about Idema and Herman?  We k
      now Idema lived until at least 1923, so this must mean Herman was dead b
      y this time?  Both aunts Lillian and Hazel and cousin Dardenelle rememb
      er grandmother Lizzy saying that Herman stole the money from their moth
      er while she was dying so he must have died soon after -- before his mo
      ther died.  This could also mean that Amanda died soon after the 1900 c
      ensus.  The fact that Lizzy's birth month is not listed and the year is w
      rong, and Amanda's parents' birthplaces are listed as "UNK" may be a cl
      ue 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 wi
      th the tuberculosis that killed her and someone else gave the informati
      on to the census taker?
      (The Chickasaw Nation included all or part of the following twelve pres
      ent day counties: Bryan, Carter, Garvin, Grady, Jefferson, Johnston, Lo
      ve, McClain, Marshall, Murray, Pontotoc and Stephens.)
      According to volume III of CEMETERY INSCRIPTIONS OF CARTER COUNTY, OKLA
      HOMA, which includes Rose Hill Cemetery in Ardmore, it says "In checkin
      g a number of different sources it appears there were two other older, o
      r at least as old, cemeteries in Ardmore.  The remains from at least on
      e of these cemeteries were removed to Rose Hill prior to statehood (190
      7).  One source says around 1895 and another says about the turn of the c
      entury.  A check of the 1895 newspapers did not reveal any stories conc
      erning a cemetery move.  Rose Hill was opened for burial in 1895 and on
      ce called South Cemetery."
      The book "INDIAN TERRITORY AND CARTER COUNTY PIONEERS" says "In April 1
      895, the largest fire in the history of Ardmore started in Harper's Liv
      ery Stable on North Caddo.  Due to high winds, the fire spread rapidly t
      o the back of the stores on Main Street ... several merchants were unin
      sured."  Perhaps J.R.'s store was destroyed then? Perhaps he died in th
      e fire?
      In a letter dated 2-21-1997, Aunt Hazel (Cloud) Brown wrote of their fa
      mily: "1. Herman, no children; 2. Iduma, no children; 3. Theodore, died y
      oung; 4. Arthur, no children; 5. Zebulon, four children: John, Lyn, Irm
      a; 6. Lena, no children; 7. Vitura, one daughter, Theo Harris, married t
      o Martha Harris children Opal, Winfred, Arthur, Allen, they had oil wel
      ls, last account of them they were in Sulphur, Oklahoma; 8. Elizabeth - m
      other and had ten children."
      On 2-23-1998, aunt Hazel said "momma said her mother had 9 kids".  Thou
      gh I can find no evidence of either Elmer/Elma or Arthur, Hazel's recol
      lection lends credibility to their having been children of Amanda and J
      .R.
