Theodor Siebert: A Biography – Iron Game History – May/June, 2000

Adolf Eduard Theodor Friedrich Siebert was born on October 25, 1866 in Weißenfels on the River Saale and was baptized on November 16 in the Evangelical Church of St. Mary. His father was a tenant brewer and merchant named Christoph Gottlieb Siebert (died 1872). His mother’s name was Amalie (née Weilßhahn). As was usual at this time, Christoph Siebert invited several godfathers to the baptism: Adolf Papian, a person of independent means from Merseburg, the landowner Eduard Weißhahn from Schaditz, the merchant Franz Arendt, and the homeowner Friedrich Siebert from Querfurt.
