Seymour is a city in Jackson County, Indiana, United States. The population was 17,503 at the 2010 census. Seymour is referred to as the "Crossroads of America" due to the north/south and east/west railroads intersecting downtown. The north/south line (the Jeffersonville, Madison and Indianapolis Railroad) was built in the 1840s and connected Indianapolis to the Ohio River at Jeffersonville. In 1852, Capt. Meedy Shields persuaded John Seymour into building the east/west railroad (the Ohio and Mississippi Railroad) through his land. In return, Shields named the area Seymour. Seymour is the birthplace of singer John Cougar Mellencamp, former Indiana 9th District U.S. Representative Baron Hill, Texas lawyer Paul Eggers, Miss America 2009 Katie Stam, retired professional wrestler Rip Rogers,his wrestling manager Manny (The Weasel) Valverde, and Robert Shields whose personal diary earned him a place in the Guinness Book of World Records. Robert William Shields was a distant cousin of Seymour founder Meedy Shields. Major General Paul T. Preuss is from Seymour. During the period September 1958 to August 1959 General Preuss served at Hickam Air Force Base, Hawaii as commander, Pacific Air Forces Base Command and commander, Hawaiian Air Defense Division. He was reassigned to Washington in September 1959 as deputy director of Research and Development, Headquarters U.S. Air Force.
