Between the mid-17th and mid-20th centuries, German settlers arrived in North America by the thousands. Persecution based on religion and poverty were great motivators in this large-scale migration. So too was the opportunity for tenant farmers to own their own land. Ample land and opportunity awaited the settlers who went to such states as Pennsylvania, Texas, New York, Illinois, and California, as well as Ontario and the prairie provinces of Canada. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Siebeltt or a variant listed above: John Sieble, who arrived in Pennsylvania in 1751. Peter Sieboldt came to Pennsylvania in 1803; Mary Sibbald came to California in 1853; Paul Siebald came to Allegheny Count, Pa. in 1855.
