Biographical / Historical

William Seibert and Samuel Seibert are most likely descendents of (Johann) Wendel Seibert (1721 - 1802). Wendel Seibert was born in the Saarland (now part of Germany) and immigrated to the United States in 1738. He arrived in Philadephia and later settled in Bethel Township (now Berks county), Pennsylvania. In 1796, Wendel Seibert, along with a number of his grown children, moved to Martinsburg, (West) Virginia. More information concerning the Seibert family can be found in A&M 1869.
