Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Feb. 8, 1822
Departement du Bas-Rhin
Alsace, France
Death: Jan. 16, 1883
Kane County
Illinois, USA

Jean Baptiste was the son of Francois Xavier and Anne Marie (Krempp) Seyller. He was the seventh of nine children. He married Marie Anne Kimich and had eight children: Catherine, Helena, Louis N., Jean Baptiste, Theresa, George, Michael Joseph and Victoria.

Family tradition indicates that the widower, Jean Baptiste, emigrated from Alsace before 1870 in order to protect his sons from being forced to fight in the army of iron fisted German Chancellor Otto Von Bismarck who was the enemy of the Alsacians. He settled near Lemont, Illinois before moving to Burlington area about 1877.

The following is from the Elgin Advocate
1/30/1883, pg 8, col 3

John Seyller, living about three miles south of this place on the Lyons farm, died quite suddenly Monday. The deceased had been a sufferer from bronchitis for sometime, but the direct cause of his death was from pulmonary apoplexy. He arose from his chair and started to cross the room, when he fell and expired in a few minutes. He was 61 years of age and leaves a large family, all grown. The funeral took place Thursday from the Catholic church.
