Sittler John F. [Male] b. SEP 1785 Mussig, Alsace, France - d. 25 FEB 1873 Annawan, IL

Also called Jean Sittler.

This side of the family had only just arrived in Alsace in the 1700s. They came from Switzerland, and moved to Alsace, because of a hunger in Switzerland.

Left Germany with 3 of his children, to move to America. The emigration records do not exist.

Jean Sittler (a widower) and his son Jean Sittler and also the Fritsch family went to Hooppole, IL, and built St. Mary's Church in Hooppole.

There were still Indians living in that part of Illinois at the time that they came there. Jean Sittler borrowed money to buy swampland, which the Sittler family drained.

The families from Mussig stayed together to help eachother. Jean Sittler gave 55 dollars, the largest contribution, to start St. Mary's Church. They had been having church in their homes before that.

A man named Vernon Blackert owns the old Sittler farm now, and still has the old sales contracts. His son-in-law, John Derycke, currently lives in the house. I met him in October of 2008. John Sittler bought the first piece of land in 1863, and the family bought additional pieces of land in 1867, 1868, 1878, and 1879. The Sittlers lived on that farm from 1863 to 1951. Within a few years, they were prosperous.

Sittler Marie Anna [Female] b. 1 FEB 1814 - d. 16 FEB 1837 Mussig, Alsace, France

This may not be the correct Marie Sittler for this information. I have not been able to prove that it fits here, but it is very interesting, with lots of similarities that would lead me to believe it does fit here. Many of the names are the same, but some things are very confusing, too.

Sittler Edward Vieth [Male] b. 1916 Delaware, OH - d. ABT. 1974

Professor, Regensburg, Germany.

Father of Walter Sittler, the actor.

Went back to Germany from America in 1937, for education. He became a translator in Berlin, for radio. He worked there as a student, because he needed the money. He became a radio broadcaster there, to replace a Douglas Chandler. He broadcasted Nazi propaganda from Germany to America, starting in 1943.

NSDAP (Nazi) membership card dated 02/15/1942.

Professor of Literature.

Could not find steady employment after returning to America from his time in Germany, because of his Nazi connection. His wife made an advertisement for Quaker Oats, to help support the family. He taught at the University of Everston in Chicago for only a few months. There were large protests when he began there as a lecturer. From there, he went to Columbus, OH.

Renaturalization into the United States was refused to Edward.

Was a well-read and edjucated man.

He was described by his son Loring as a 100% convinced Nazi, a real propagandist. (translation might be slightly off?)

His son Karl says "he accepted the German nationality, because he was convinced that the American direction was wrong."

He is described as having little relationship with his father. He was closer to his mother.

He was the youngest of the 8 siblings.

Professor at Alfred College in New York.
