[NI060200] From the Johnstown Trib..LEWIS WISSINGER, CENTENARIAN A Short Sketch of the Life of a Remarkable Man. D. Sat Lewis Wissinger, notice of whose death Sat. last, was aged a 102 yrs 3 mos, a day of having been b. on 21 Jun 1793. He 1st saw light on farm now owned by Abner Griffth, on Bedford Pike, Stoneycreek Twp abt 2 1/2 mi.s from Johnstown. His father, having served in Rev. War, secured a grant of a tract of land there & moved on to it from Manns Choice, Bedford Co., 10 yrs or so before the beginning the present century. The newly acquired prop. was one vast wilderness, there the elder Wissinger lived & toiled & brought up his family of 11 chldrn, of whom Lewis was 7 in order of birth & the last to d., the others having d. at ages ranging 80-90 yrs. The father d. at 90. The mother, who survived him a few yrs, was also very aged when she d. When abt 25 yrs of age Lewis m. Ms Barbara Strayer, & for several yrs he farmed the old homestead for his father, after which he drove a 6-horse team for some time on Pittsburgh Pike, hauling metal from Shade Furnace to Pittsburgh. Mr. Wissinger was considered an expert teamster, as well as an excellent farmer, & engaged in one or the other of these pursuits for his entire life 'til abt 4 yrs ago, when the task of running a farm became too burdensome for him, & he moved to a 3 room 1 story house on the farm of his son Harry, Conemaugh Twp, which was placed at his disposal. It was here he d. During the past few yrs, he & his wife did some gardening & kept several cows, from which they continued to make their own living. Although he was an expert farmer & a hard worker all his life, the fruits of his labors & knowledge in this direction were reaped by some one else, & he was never able to get a farm of his own, but lived on rented ones, & d. poor in this worlds goods. After some 17 yrs of m. life, that b. 5 chldn, his wife d. He mourned her for abt 4 yrs, & in 1839 m. Ms Margaret Lint, who survives him, & is now in her 78th yr. To this m. b. 6 chldn. The surviving chldn to his 1st wife, in the order of their birth, are: Sarah, w/o David Kauffman, Croyle Twp; Eli, Walnut Grove; & John, farming in Jackson Twp. The chldn of 2d wife, in order of their birth: Harry, engaged in lumber line, & coal business, Conemaugh Twp; Esther, who d. at 23 yrs; Samuel, E. Taylor Twp, engaged in butchering business, Conemaugh; Barbara, w/o Peter Keiper, RR switchman, Conemaugh; Annie w/o Daniel Fyock, Adams Twp, & Adam, in lime & coal business, Scalp Level. Mr. Wissinger memb. of German Bap. Ch. over 1/2 century, having connected himself with that denomination when about 49 yrs of age. His wife has been a memb. of that ch. almost 55 yrs. The end of this aged man was peaceful, & he slipped away surrounded by wife & several chldn. His death can be attributed to the wearing out of vital organs. Up to a few mos ago he had never been ill a day in his life. 6 wks ago his strength began to fail, & he gradually grew more helpless until the end. In recent yrs it had been the custom to hold family reunions at his home on the ann. of his birth, or near that time, which were attended by many hundreds of persons from all over the Co. This yr it was omitted because of his feeble condition. The last such gathering was 8 Aug 1894. He was then in excellent health & spirits & enjoyed the festivities of the dy greatly, shaking hands twice around with all the guests. Among his direct descendants could be numbered at the time 48 gchildren & 40 ggchildren. The funeral took place this morn 9 am, bur. Gossard Graveyard, Conemaugh Twp. The cut which accompanies this article is from a photograph of Mr. Wissinger & his wife, which was taken some 3 yrs ago. At that time both enjoyed the best of health & had the full use of all their faculties. Lewis was a wonderful man, & lived through a brilliant period in the history of the world. He lacked but a few yrs of being, on his native ?, a subject of King George III, living through the French Rev. & the reigns of the Napoleons. He was one the few persons who was a citizen of the Country under Washington & every succeeding Pres. up to the present. He became of age the yr before the Battle of Waterloo, when Madison was Pres., & cast his 1st Pres.'l ballot 1816, for Rufus King, the Federalist, then & always opposing the party of slavery & Free Trade. In his youth the household supplies & other merchandise were brought from the Eastern cities on pack mules, then by the Nat'l Turnpikes, & these were succeeded by the canal & RR. Only a short distance to the west, in his youth, Indians & white men were at war. He was familiar with the War of 1812, & remembered when Jackson fought his winning battle at New Orleans. He remembered, too, of the message of non-interference, in 1823, since known as the Monroe Doctrine. Opposed to the Free Trade policy, he was friendly to Jackson in his enforcement of the law, & applauded when the Pres. declared he would hang Calhoun "higher than Haman" for persisting in the Nullification Act of 18?2. He was a strong supporter of the Govern't in war with Mexico & the Civil War 1861 When he was 50 yrs of age the magnetic telegraph was invented by Morse & a short time prior the 1st steam RR had been built. He was one who saw his nation commence with 13 States & at his death have 44, he saw the continent being spanned by the RR & telegraph, & the world girdled by the cable; he lived in a period that revolutionized travel, reducing the passage across the ocean from 5 wks to 6 dys, & from Johnstown to Philadelphia from 3 wks to 6 hrs. He lived to see his neighbors & tradesmen doing bus. by the aid of the telephone, while several hundred miles apart, & to see heat, power & light ground out of small pieces of steel for the use of mankind. He saw the cradle & scythe replaced by the reaper & mower. Lewis' life began in the latter part of 18th cent., & lasted almost over the 19th, through the most glorious period of the earth, when the darkness gave way to the dawn of many possibilities for making life better, with more pleasure & happiness & less labor to secure it; when slavery was abolished & all men made peers & whatever is better today than it was 100 yrs ago; whatever in our glorious country makes life less of a burden & more of a pleasure, makes it easier to give every child the heritage of a good education & guarantees to every person the enjoyment of rights as dear as life itself, whatever of this there is today, owes its existence to the upright, straighforward lives of that sturdy class represented by Lewis Wissinger.
J-town Trib Fri 10 Aug 1894 PICNIC IN E. TAYLOR TWP IN HONOR OF LEWIS WISSINGER & WIFE A REMARKABLE REUNION Gathering of Desc.s of Lewis Wissinger Many Rel.s & Friends of Cambria Co.'s Centenarian Spent An enjoyable day with him & his wife at the Home of His Son, In E. Taylor Twp, Taking Presents & Provisions With Them. The Old Gentlemen Still Able to Earn His Own Living -- A Sketch of His Life A most extraordinary & pleasant family reunion & picnic was that which was held Wed at home of Mr. Samuel Wissinger, E. Taylor Twp, about 1 mi. above Conemaugh, in honor of Cambria Co.'s venerable patriarch, Lewis Wissinger, who reached the remarkable age of 101 yrs on last 21 June, & who resides Conemaugh Twp, about 2 mi.s above Franklin Boro. The guests began to arrive early in the am & continued coming until abt noon, at which time the no. had swelled to between 400 & 500 persons. A no. of large tables were set in the orchard of the aged gentlemen's son Samuel, & abt 1 pm the guests were invited to sit down to these tables which were fairly groaning under the wgt of good things of this life that had been abstracted from numerous baskets & bundles brought along by the guests. As this remarkable gathering was seated at the tables, doing justice to the good things spread before it, Photographer I. J. Wissinger took the picture of the entire group. After the inner man had been satisfied, Mr. Wissinger & his venerable wife were singled out for the purpose of having a likeness of their features transferred to cardboard; then another photograph of the whole assemblege was taken. When the photographer had finished his work, the gathering resolved itself into a sort of social convocation, Prof. J. W. Leech, of Ebensburg, acting as master of ceremonies. The Professor, in making a few remarks, said he had tried to bring along with him the oldest person in Ebensburg, but, failing in this, had brought the next oldest Hon. A. A. Barker. Mr. Leech said that while Mr. Barker was a very old man, he appeared as a sprightly boy compared to Mr. Wissinger, & it must be remembered that the latter had cast his 1st vote before the former had seen the light of day, & has lived under the administration of every Pres. of the US, having been b. during Washington's 2nd term. Rev. W. M. Covert, Conemaugh Presby. Ch., followed Mr. Leech in a brief address, & Rev. R. Sirhowy Jones, Ebensburg Congreg. Ch., sang a hymn entitled, "Going Through the Valley". Hon. A. A. Barker was then introduced, & made a short but very happy speech suitable to the occasion. Prof. Leech then closed the ceremonies with a few appropriate remarks. Mr. and Mrs. Wissinger were the recipients of a great many presents, including dry goods, groceries, and provisions, as well as a considerable amount of money. Notwithstanding his great age, Mr. Wissinger looked as well Wed. -if not better- than he did on the day of the celebration of his 100th b-day June 21, 1893. He shook hands twice around with all present, & seemed to enjoy the festivities of the day very much. He has never been sick in bed a day in his life, & does not use spectacles. His aged wife also enjoys the best of health, & the venerable couple, from present indications, seem to be good for at least a 10 or 15 yr lease of life.

David & J.W. served in the late war, the former 1 yr & the latter 3 yrs. J.W. was captured & held in Libby prison 2 mo.s. Obit Johnstown Daily Trib Feb 24 1888 - With the death of Joseph Mostoller, one of the most prominent figures in the history of Somerset Co. passed away. For more than 1/2 a cent. he was a leading citizen, & the northern portion of the Co., in particular, felt the weight of his good influence. He was b. on what is known as Butcher Stahl farm, about 2 mi.s north of Stoystown, on 5 May 1801, & d. on 11 Feb 1888. In about a yr after his birth, his father moved with his family to 1 mi. east of Friedens's where Jospeh was reared. In 1824 he m. Sarah Mowry, a sis. of Mr. Mowry who founded the Somerset Herald, & who was a memb. of the Legislature, & also filled the Sheriff's office for 1 term in Somerset Co. He followed farming, but in conjunction carried on an extensive lumber bus. up to within a few yrs of his death. Endowed with a powerful memory, he was extremely methodical & exact. He had a legal & judicial mind &, had he been so disposed, would have shone at the bar or on the bench. His judgement seldom, if ever, erred, & his reputation for honesty & fair dealing was not questioned. Mrs. Mostoller, who is still living at the age of 85 & is yet quite firm & sprightly, bore to her husb. 10 chldrn: 3 boys & 7 girls. 2 sons & 4 dau.s survive The couple have had 67 grndchldrn & 65 grt-grndchldrn. Mr. Mostoller, though totally blind since 1883, retained his faculties to within a yr of his demise, when they began to fail him somewhat. He cast his 1st vote as a Democrat, but then changed to be a Whig, & held to that until the Rep. party came into existence, when he joined that party & continued a staunch Rep. until death. He was a confirmed memb. of the Luth. Church in 1816 at Berlin, before there was a church at Frieden's, & was a consistent memb. to the last. He was well versed in the Sacred Scriptures, ancient & modern history, & in the general topics of the day. The internment took place in the Odd Fellows' Cem., Stoystown. Rev. A. Sell conducted the funeral serv.s. (A similar obit was printed in the Feb. 22, 1888, issue of the Somerset Herald From an article appearing in the May 1984? Laurel Messenger - During the Civil War, Joseph Mostoller built a water mill to saw timber, a few hundred yds from where Wells Creek empties into Stoney Creek. Then a race was built from Stoney Creek to divert water to power the sawmill. In Sep 1864 John W. Mostoller, son of Joseph was mustered out of the Union Army in time to help his father build the mill race. The following June another son, David, was honorably discharged from the Union forces. He joined his father & brother in the operation of the sawmill. It is in this setting that the story of the Mostoller bean takes place. This story was related to a grt- grndsn by Sarah herself & became a lasting memory for the Mostoller family. Of their 10 children, 6 are living: Lousie, widow of Abraham Lambert; David; Mary, who is the wife of Jeremiah WILT and has 4 children (Rosa, Lizzie, Sidney, and James); Nancy, widow of Samuel Lambert and mother of 8 children (Edward, Lorenzo, Jairus, Ellsworth, Azariah, Sidney, Irvin, and John); Belinda, wife of Abraham Carver and mother of 2 children (Ira and Cynthia); and John W. There is a difference in the number and names of the children. All references seem to agree on Louisa, Elizabeth, Nancy, Mary, Charles Henry, Rose, David, John W.and Belinda. The couple have had 67 grandchildren and 65 great-grandchildren. Mr. Mostoller, though totally blind since 1883, retained his faculties to within a year of his demise, when they began to fail him somewhat. The deceased cast his first vote as a Democrat, but then changed to be a Whig, and held to that until the Rep. party came into existence, when he joined that party and continued a staunch Rep. until death. Later in life he removed to the home of his son, John W., in Quemahoning twp, where he died in 1888. OLD SAW MILL MOLDERS TO DUST ( written by Bill Jones) The old sawmill at Mostoller Station has moldered to dust. The only sign that it ever existed is the mill race that diverted water from the Stonycreek to turn its overshot water. wheel. The mill was built around the time of the Civil War by Joseph Mostoller. It was located a couple miles west of Lambertsville, near where the road from Lambertsville meets the Stonycreek. Joseph was a grandson of Frederick Mostoller, who settled near Friedens in 1776 & built a gristmill. Joseph's father, John, served as a co. commissioner, & represented Somerset Co. in the state Legislature in 1820 & 1821. The sawmill flourished for a time. But when the B&O RR built its line to Johnstown in 1881 it became easier to take timber by rail to Johnstown for processing. Joseph died in 1888. Joseph's great-grandson; Ralph V. Mostoller of Moxham, remembers the site of the old sawmill. He grew up in the Lambertsville area, but because Stonycreek Township had no high school he spent his school wks with relatives in Moxham. Coal became a valuable commodity during WW I. It was mined in the hill between Lambertsville & Mostoller Station & hauled to the railroad in bobsleds during the winter. 1850 Census Stoneycreek Twp., Somerset Co., PA

[NI060711] GOOSE SOWS BEAN SEEDS INTO HISTORY ( written by Bill Jones) We all know the story of Jack and the Beanstalk, in which a handful of magical beans grew overnight into a stalk that reached high above the clouds. But do you know about magical beans that were carried to Somerset Co. by a goose and are still growing more than 130 years later And they're still traveling. It was the fall of 1865 or 1866, when a flock of Canada geese on their flight so. paused on the Stonycreek a couple miles west of Lambertsville. One got caught in the mill race that fed the water wheel that operated Joseph Mostoller's sawmill. One of the Mostoller sons, John or David, shot the goose and took it to their mother to be cleaned and prepared for dinner. As Sarah Mostoller cleaned the goose, she felt that its craw was distended, opened it and found a handful of beans. Being a frugal person, Sarah placed the beans on the window sill to dry, and planted them the following spring. Members of the Mostoller family have been replanting the beans every year since, and so have others who acquired seed. The Mostoller Wild Goose Beans, as they have come to be kwn, are pole beans that grow rapidly to a height of 10 feet or more. The bean is white, pinkish buff around the eye and with splotches of reddish brown in varying amounts. They can be eaten as snap beans when green, and reportedly are excellent dried in baked beans or soup.
Many years after they were taken from the goose, the beans were identified by an expert in beanology (my work) as being a Seneca Indian bean. It is believed the goose gobbled the beans on the Cornplanter Indian Reservation on the upper Allegheny River, flew to the Somerset Co. area and was shot before the beans could deteriorate. Ralph Mostoller of Moxham got his Goose Bean seed from Willard and Pauline Constable, then residents of Riverside who had obtained them from another member of the Mostoller family. She wanted to know whether the Mostoller name could be used in connection with the beans, a sample of which had been sent to the US Dept. of Agric. Experimental Stat. in Beltsville, MD. Dr JP Meiners, chief of applied plant pathology at Beltsville, wrote that he found the beans somewhat unique. He planted them and sent samples to a Dr. Dolan at Geneva, NY who he said, is very much interested in heirloom beans.
The Wild Goose beans were getting around, but it didn't stop there. Samples went to John E. Withee in Lynnfield, MA, who founded Wanigan Assc. to preserve historic heirloom beans and seeds. The project outgrew Withee, who appealed to two other org.s for help. They were the Seed Savers Exchange, operated by Kent Whealy near Princeton, MO and the Organic Gardening and Farming Research Center in Kutztown. They also are grown in the heirloom seeds projects at the Somerset Co. Historical and Genealogical Society and the state owned Landis Valley Farm Museum north of Lancaster. The Landis Valley heirloom seed catalog lists the Mostoller Wild Goose Bean. It describes the bean as white, oval seed with reddish speckled orange-brown spot over the eye and says it has excellent flavor, vigorous grower with good production. They sell the seed for $3 a packet. Besides those sold, the Mostoller Wild Goose Bean has been given to interested people throughout the United State. It is listed in the Seed Savers Exchange annual catalog and has been exchanged over a wide area. That goose had no idea what it was starting when it began its ill-fated flight from Canada more than 130 years ago.

[NI060916] The 1st coal mine in Shade Twp. was opened in 1820 by George Lambert. The mine was located on W side of Little Shade Creek abt 1,200 ft S of Central City line along Rt. 160. This C-prime coal was mined until 1904 under succeeding ownerships of George Lambert, Jr., Noah Blough & Rollin Baldwin.
George Lambert, one of Shade Twp's earliest settlers, accompanied by his 2 bros, Jacob & John, came here from Cumberland Co. in 1789. George purchased & received warrants for more than 1000 acs of land located on Little Shade Creek & including all lands surrounding junctions of Beaver, Crooked, Dark Shade, & Little Shade creeks, also lands extending westward into Miller Run Valley. This was still a great wilderness overrun by many wild animals when George blt his cabin here in 1790. This is illustrated by a story told by Mr. Lambert in later yrs. Lambert, in company of several other settlers from this vicinity, journeyed to Greencastle, Franklin Co., a distance of 70 mis, to purchase some badly needed supplies. Among other things, Mr. Lambert brought back home several pigs which he placed in a wooden pen for the night. The next morn he awoke to find his pigs gone, eaten by bears. In 1793, George m Elizabeth Stotler, 2nd d/o Casper Stotler. George blt their cabin home on the west bank of Little Shade Creek, abt 1/2 mi S of its junction with Dark Shade Creek. now kwn as Henry Umberger Farm. Here on Little Shade Creek in 1800, George Lambert blt 1st sawmill in Shade Twp. (This land is now occupied by the Landis Sunoco Sta & Tremel residence.) The mill was a crude machine run by water power developed by old bucket-type water wheel. The saw operated with an up-&-down motion, hence the up-&-down mill. This sawmill in later yrs became a boom to Lambert family. Yrs later, when their chldn grew to maturity, George & Elizabeth (Stotler) Lambert divided their lands among their 8 chdn. Upon ea tract of land they placed a log cabin home, a home for ea of their chdn. George & Elizabeth (Stotler) Lambert were parents of: Jacob, John, George, Jr., Mary, Sarah, Rebecca, Eleanor, & Elizabeth. George & Elizabeth are both bur Stotler Cem on farm of Guy Lambert, 3 mi.

[NI060979] Jacob, d. Intestate 1864 son, Dennis, petitioned the Co. of Somerset to distribute Jacob's Estate to his chldrn or the chldrn's surviving chldrn. This document spells out the names of Jacob's chldrn, or in the event of their demise, the names of their chldrn. That document is on file at the Somerset Courthouse. b Jan 31, 1789, d 1856, married Catherine Hardin (189- ). Jacob owned a house & barn, tax parcel 43-08-80, just north of Wellersburg that he obtain from sometime before 1830 from the Korns Family. At the time it was acquired by Jacob, it was located on a 190 acre parcel. Jacob also owned lots & a tavern in Wellersburg & Hyndman. Jacob, in his barn, started the 1st distillery in the area. This homestead tract was purchased by his son, Dennis, who was 1 of Jacob's 10 chldrn. Dennis was a Somerset Co. Commissioner in 1878. The substantial property holding is a reminder of this influential family & its contribution to the twp & co. Previous to living in the Wellersburg area, it is thought Jacob lived & was raised in the Harrisburg, PA area.

[NI060980] Arrived Amer.1727 Oct. 2nd in Philadelphia aboard the ship Adventure which embarked from Rotterdam. Johann originaly settled in Trappe Twp Montgomery Co., where his first 4 children were born, and bapt. by the Rev. William Casper Stoever according to the Trappe Luth. Ch. Records. The Trappe Ch. was not organized or built until after the rev. Henry Melchior Muhlenberg arrived in 1742. The last 6 children were born in in Upper SausonTwp. Johann lived to the age of 56. Death Oct.19,1751 in Upper Saucon Twp. Northampton Co. PA. Burial in Oct. 21 1751, in Blue Ch., Coopersburg Pa. [St. Pauls Luth.] Age 56. Resided in Hereford Twp. Berks Co. Pa. Occupation as a blacksmith. Johan was naturalized on Apr.10,1741 apparently because he had not taken the oath of allegiance when he arrived in 1727, he was appointed the first constable when Sauson County was organized in Mar.1743. Johan George was also one of the founding members of the St. Pauls Luth. Ch., [called the blue church] where he is buried. In 1753 Anna Margretha married a second time to Jacob Ludwig according to Blue Ch. record. Since George and Margretha came to Amer. in 1727, they must have been married in Germany. They settled in Northhampden Co. near Philadelphia. When Johann got his warrant for 200 acres dated Jan. 7th 1735, this was frontier land and then part of Bucks Co.[now Lehigh Co.] and his 200 acres were just above the present line separating Buck and Lehigh co.s. This area was sparsely settled in 1735; so it was not until 1743 that the settlers petitioned for the creation of Saucon Twp. Northhampden Co. was then created from Bucks Co. in 1752 and the 200 acres of Johann were barely within the southern side of the new co. All of Johann's children were bapt. by Luth. preachers. It can be presumed that they lived in the area of New Hanover Luth. Ch. which was the first Luth. ch. in Amer. to be organized in Amer. around 1703. From mid 1500-1700 this region of the world was plaqued by severe religious persecution and constant feudal war. The great majority of people who came to the colonies in the late 1600's and early 1700's were raised in an era of intoleration and lived in fear of the state gov.'t (and Nobel/Feudal Lord). Many families moved throughout the German regions, up and over into Switzerland and back across to what is now France (Alsace-Lorraine) just to stay alive. They came to Amer. in the hope of finding freedom from persecution and a chance to raise their families without fear. Most found this freedom early on, however, as the years drew closer to the Revolutionary War things began to change. When the English parliament inacted heavy taxes and began to treat the colonists with disregard, many German settlers refused to go against King George and the oath that they took when they first arrived. The idea of war did not seem to be important to them. They chose, instead, to move farther west into unprotected areas of PA, WV (then VA & MD). d/o Born in Hesse Darmstardt, Germany in 1702 and immigrated to No. Amer. with his wife Barbara, in 1729 on the ship Mortonhouse. The records show that this ship sailed from Rotterdam and, clearing from Deal, England, June 21, 1729, arrived at Philadelphia on August 19, 1729, and immediately upon his arrival, Frederick Ludwig subscribed to the oath of allegiance to George II of England.)

[NI060994] George Marsteller, the eldest son and second child of Johann Georg and Anna Margaretha (Erlebach) Marsteller, was born in what was then Philadelphia Co., Pa., near Trappe, on June 14, 1731.He was baptized by the Rev. William Casper Stoever as were his oldest sister, Amelia, and his next two sisters, Anna Margaretha and Catharine. His family moved to the frontier area later organized as Saucon Twp, where he grew up.The first records of him as an adult appear after his father's death. In the administration of his father's estate, George, as eldest son, received two shares totalling 127 pounds, 19 shillings, and 8 1/2 pence. Deeds and Orphans' Court records in Northampton Co. in a period Jan., 1754 to April, 1754, show George wanting to purchase the real estate of his deceased father. However, as of Apr. 1754, he decided not to acquire the home place. By Feb. 4,1755, he sold his interest to his brother-in-law, Nicholas Frantz.
George was a blacksmith by trade, as was his father and also his grandfather, Nicholas Marsteller in Pfungstadt,Hesse,Germany.The next matter mentioned here has not been well-documented at this time in spite of much diligent research. Hans Jerg (George) Marsteller, age 22 yrs old, arriving on the ship "Brothers" on Sept. 26, 1753. Also, George Marsteller of Hereford Twp, Berks Co., is listed as being naturalized on Sept. 24, 1765. The question arises, if he was born in the Trappe area and grew up in Amer., could this possibly be young George's name on a ship's list and later on naturalization George may have gone to Germany after his father's death, reporting to the relatives in Pfungstadt. This round trip to Germany might have caused him to be out of the colony for more than six months. There was a colonial law in Penn Colony requiring a new "Oath of Allegiance" after an absence of over six months. The next time his name appears is in Berks Co. Tax Lists show George Marsteller, blacksmith, taxed beginning in 1759, continuously until his death in 1787. He is also listed as one of the first members of the Zionsville Luth. Ch. in Upper Milford Twp. in 1759. He married Margaretha. The date and place of their marriage, and the exact dates of their three eldest sons' births have not as yet been documented. He and his wife had nine children. Berks Co. Hist. Soc. records show that in 1778, he took the Oath of Allegiance before Charles Shoemaker and is recorded during the Revolution as a Patriot. George Marsteller died in March, 1787. No information has as yet been found which would tell us for how long he was survived by his widowed wife Margaret.

Lee needed every man he had, but he also needed to stop the Yankees from burning food crops and farms in the Shenandoah Valley and he needed to divert Grant's attention from Richmond. Lee sent Gen Jubal A. Early with between 10,000 and 15,000 men to the valley. They were to push Union forces out of the Shenandoah, then sweep around to the north and east and put pressure on Washington, DC. Early entered the valley at Lynchburg June 17 and ran into two divisions of Gen David Hunter's Army of WV, about 7,500 men. Among Hunter's troops was the 54th PA Volunteer infantry Regiment. Things didn't go well for the Union forces, which were cut up by Confederate artillery and musket fire. In the thick of it was the 54th PA and Pvt. John W. Mostoller, a soldier in Company B. His Medal of Honor citation tells what happened: "A Medal of Honor was awarded to him for most distinguished gallantry, at the battle of Lynchburg, VA, when the officers of his company being absent or disabled, he voluntarily led a charge upon a Confederate battery." The effects of his action are better described by Lisa A. Mostoller in her 1991 genealogy. "A Brief History of the Mostoller Family and Their Descendants." She wrote: Pvt. John W. Mostoller saved an entire Union brigade from certain destruction or capture. He led a charge against a battery of Confederate artillery, which so terrorized the enemy by its sheer audacity that it was successful. Routing the enemy battery provided an opportunity for Hunter to withdraw his brigade to the south and live to fight another day, while Early turned north. In the months ahead, Hunter was to prove a thorn in Early's flesh. About 200 Confederates were killed or wounded at Lynchburg. Union losses were about 100 killed, 500 wounded and 100 missing. John had been in several battles and skirmishes. He had spent two months in the infamous Libby Prison at Richmond in 1862, and received minor wounds at New Market in 1864. John W. Mostoller was mustered out of the Army Sept 16, 1864 having served a three-year enlistment. He returned to Somerset Co. where his father, Joseph, had built a water-powered sawmill a few hundred yards down stream from where Wells Creek empties into the Stonycreek River, west of Lambertsville. John farmed and helped his father at the sawmill. His brother, David, was descharged in August 1865. He joined the family enterprise as well as farming. John Mostoller married Ida C. Dibert, in April 1869 but she died at the age of 20, leaving him with a son Bertram and daughter, Ida. On July 18, 1877, he married Nancy Catherine (Kate) Barnhardt, daughter of Adam and Rachel Wilt Barnhardt. The couple had eight children which survived: Joseph F., Mary J., Adam F., Webster, Reno, John W. Jr., Margrette and Meriam. John became the first commander of GAR Post 318 at Stoystown. He also served as a school director. John died Dec 5, 1925. Kate lived until May 20, 1939. They are buried side by side in the Odd Fellow Cemetery at Stoystown. Per LAU 1161 - Medal of Honor, John W. Mostoller, Pvt., Co. B, 54th Pa. Vol. Inf. At the battle of Lynchburg, Va., June 18, 1864, Capt. Cole of Co. B. was severely wounded, and none of the other officers were present. Mostoller saw the Confederate artillery raking the Union positions with demoralizing effect, and with military instruction beyond his years, he determined that the battery must be taken to save the Union lines from annihilation. The charge of Co. B terrorized the enemy gunners by the sheer audacity of such an attack. The Union positions were thereby saved, notwithstanding the Union soldiers had been without rations and worn out by several days of hard service and, worst of all, were much outnumbered by the enemy. The citation read that Mostoller, by his own initiative, gave the command, led the charge and captured the rebel battery on the hill side, and thereby saved an entire brigade of the Union Army from certain destruction or capture.
Fought in the Civil War 6/18/1864- led a charge that captured a battery of Rebel soldiers saving a Union brigade- fought at Lynchberg, VA decorated with Gold Distinguished Service Medal . medal on display in Somerset Co., PA
