From "Washington, West of the Cascades", 1917: "The Pasttime Theater at Mount Vernon ranks as the leading motion picture house in the towm and its success is due to the policy of its owner, Mr. Seibert of giving his patrons the best films obtainable. He was born on the 9th of August, 1851, in Franklin, Johnson County, Indiana, a son of Jacob Seibert, a native of Pennsylvania. The latter's father emigrated from Germany to America in 1779 and located in Pennsylvania. Jacob Seibert was a shoe maker by trade, but after following that line of work for years turned his attention to the hardware business, becoming a successful merchant of Franklin, Indiana. Later he established the first shoe store in the town and also met with success in that venture. In early manhood he was a democrat, later supported the whig party and at the time of Lincoln's nomination became a republican and an abolitionist. During his remaining years he worked ardently for the success of the republican party and was recognized as one of its leaders in his section of the state. For four terms he held the office of mayor of Franklin, for twenty-five years was justice of the peace, for two terms was county auditor, and for a similar length of time was county clerk, his long and honorable record as an office holder testifying to the confidence repoesed in his ability and integrity. At the time of his death, which occurred on the 18th of May, 1878, when he was seventy-three years old, he was the incumbesnt in the office of justice of the peace. He had been prominently connected with the development of the town of Franklin since its early days and left the impress of his individuality upon its growth along many lines. His wife, who bore the maiden name of Margaret McCaslin, was a native of Scott County, Kentucky, and a descendant of an old Virginia family of Irish descent. One of her ancestors of the name of Carr, came to America in 1769 and fought in the Revolutionary War. A great-uncle of Mrs. Seibert, Samuel Carr, was a professor of mathematics in the University of Virginia and later became one of the most prominent educators of the new state of Kentucky, the family removing to the "dark and bloody ground" with a colony established there by Daniel Boone. Mrs. Seibert passed away in 1874 in Franklin, Indiana, when forty-nine years of age. She was the mother of three children, those besides our subject being Ella and Elizabeth B., both deceased." "Alonzo G. Seibert first attended the publich schools and later took a course in Franklin College, located in his home town, but when fourteen years old started out to earn his living. He apprenticed himself to the bricklayer's trade and after servin his whole term of indenture worked at his trade for five years, during which time he also studied architecture. Later two and a half years were spent in an architect's office in Indianapolis and he then turned his attention to the building contracting business, being so engaged in Indianapolis and at Marion, Ohio, for some time. In 1883 he returned from the buckeye state to Indianapolis and for six more years was active as a contractor in the Hoosier capital. On the 1st of March, 1889, he left Indianapolis for the state of Washington abd after stopping at several places, including Spokane and Tacoma, took p his residence in Seattle. He secured employment with Otto Ranke, then the most prominent contractor of that city, and although he began as a journeyman it was not long before he was made superintendent. Among the buildings whose contruction he had in charge are the Pioneer building and the Tootles & Singer building. Many of the most important structures erected in Seattle during that time were built under his direct supervision. He remained with Mr. Ranke for two years, or until that latter's demise. For ten years Mr Seibert was superintendent for various contractors in different places in the west. In 1895 he removed to Los Angeles, California, but in 1898 returned to Seattle. In 1900 he turned his attention to the theater business, becoming connected with a road show, and also established a moving picture theater in Seattle. He likewise became the owner of a picture theater in Olympia in 1903 and one in Bremerton in 1908 and in 1909 removed to Mount Vernon, where he has since resided. He is the proprietor of the Pasttime Theater, which as gained a high standing among the moving picture patrons of the city because of the uniformly high character of its releases." "In August 1878, in Marion, Ohio, Mr. Seibert was united in marriage to Miss Alph B Berry, a native of Ohio and a daughter of Hugh and Elizabeth Berry who in early life removed from Virginia to Ohio. Both are now deceased. To Mr. and Mrs. Seibert has been born a daughter, Olive [sic], the wife of Peter F. McEntyre, of Tacoma." "Mr. Seibert is a republican where national issues are at stake but at local elections votes for the man rather than the party. He is connected fraternally with the Knights of Pythias and the Masons and in religious faith is a Baptist. While a resident of Indiana he served in the National Guard, thus giving evidence of his belief in the value of military training. Every obligation resting upon him as a man and as a citizen has been fully discharged and his activities in the various lines of business in which he has been engaged have not only brought him substantial success but have also contributed to the development of the communities in which he has lived. He is a man of keen intellect is especially apt in mathematical calculations and although his school days closed when he was fourteen years of age he has gained a wide fund of information through his experiences in the years that have followed."
