Elisabet Stehly, d/o Jacob and Ana Eva __? (m. Johann Peter Weyll, b. 1734), d. bef 5 Sep 1762, of, Lancaster, Pennsylvania

ABT 1760–BIRTH/WIFE IS “ELIZABETH”/DEATH ON 25 AUG 1823/BURIAL IN CHRIST REFORMED CEMETERY, UNION, ADAMS, PENNSYLVANIA. “Stehly Report,” compiled for the Historical Society of York County, Edith Beard Cannon, researcher, No. 19, “Evidences of the STEHLY Families of York County [Pennsylvania], Before the Year 1850, prepared in the Year 1948, File 3262, copy mailed to shb by Katherine Staley, November 2006, p. 3: “Cemetery Records in York and Adams Counties (continued) – Christ Reformed Cemetery, Union Township, Adams County (continued): . . . Lineup of Stealy’s includes 75. Sarah Elen Stealy, 3 Oct 1842 – 29 Jan 1857; 76. Infant, daughter of Joseph, born 3 Apr 1847 (only date given); 77. Infant, daughter of same [Joseph, born 16 Dec 1884 (I think this should be 1848–probably transposed–shb)] (only date given); 78. Menander [Alexander–shb], son of same, 1 Mar 1838 – 23 Aug 1840 [my ID 69369–shb]; 79. Joseph, died 25 Aug 1823, aged 63 years; 80. Elizabeth, wife of Joseph, d. 14 Aug 1812, aged 49-9-29; 81. Peter, died 5 Oct 1804; aged 20-5-4 [so b. abt. 1784–this would be the Peter who is the son of Andreas, brother of my ancestor Peter, Staley (m. Sarah Salome)–shb]; 82. John, died 19 Mar 1811; aged 60 years [my ID 69414, so b. abt. 1751–shb]; 83. Lovesa, 20 Aug 1773 – 8 Feb 1839.” [Lovesa, my ID 69413, is the last Stealy listed–shb.] –shb 8 Dec 2006

PARENTS JACOB AND ANA EVA? That Joseph is a son of Jacob and Ana Eva needs additional verification. In 1814 “Joseph Stähli” and wife “Maria” named a daughter “Salome.” Sponsor at her baptism was “Salome Stahli,” my ancestor, wife of Peter [I]. So, was Joseph naming a daughter after his brother Peter’s widow? In 1816, “Josseph Stehli” and wife “Elis. Maria” named a daughter Catharina. Sponsors for Catharina’s baptism were “Peter Stehli” and wife, “Elis. Cath.” It would seem that Catharina was named after “Elis. Cath.,” but I as yet do not know who this Peter Stehli is. Then, in 1824, “Joseph Stehly” and wife “Maria” named a daughter Mary Ann (sponsors, “The parents”). I don’t know if “Mary Ann” is the name of a relative. –shb 12 Dec 2006
