It turns out that this Fred Seibert was a famous American evangelist in the 1920s with a number of self published prayer books to his name, and a bunch of sweet looking postcards in his sale pouch.
Given my interest in 60s rhythm & blues, I thought it was apt that he was known as “Fred Seibert, The Soul Winner.”0 comments Tagged: Different Fred Seiberts, Fred R. Seibert, The Soul Winner, Evangelist,.
I’m the namesake of my grandfather Frederick William Seibert, of Jeffersonville, Sullivan County, New York. By all accounts, including my own experience, he was as flinty a man of German descent as he looks in this picture (an ink blotter/political advertisement for an election he ultimately didn’t win). He was never nice to me, and it doesn’t seem he was nice to my Dad (the nicest man alive), but my father never had anything but words of love for him.0 comments Tagged: Different Fred Seiberts, grandfather, ancestor,.
