STEPHEN STUTZMAN. Abt middle of 18th century a German, filled with the spirit of enterprise, left his native land & settled in what is now the little mtn republic of Switzerland. The German referred to was Abram Stutzman, ggfather of subject of this sketch. In that land of the mtns Abram Stutzman, gfather, was b. Abram Stutzman continued the journey west begun by his father, & emigrated to US, settling at old German settlement, Franklin Co., PA, on waters of Conococheague creek, where he lived remainder of his life, following pursuits of a shoemaker & farmer. Jacob Stutzman, father, was b Franklin Co. 1777, & d Taylor Twp, this Co, 1859. He was reared in Franklin Co, & learned trade of shoemaker with his father, & when a young man came to Cambria Co, seeking work along line of his craft. In those early pioneer days it was custom of trade to travel from house to house seeking employment, & it was while thus engaged that he became acquainted with a family by the name of ULERY, 1 of daus of this family he later took as his wife. Jacob Stutzman was an industrious worker, & carefully saved his earnings & purchased a farm of 231 acs, now kwn as Osborn, or 7th ward of Johnstown. He lived on his homestead until 1853, then sold it to son Stephen, & removed to Taylor Twp & spent his remaining days with his son, Samuel Stutzman. He m, when young to Susanna ULERY, & they had 11 chdn: Daniel, Abraham, Jacob, John & David, all deceased; Elizabeth, deceased, w/o Abraham WEAVER, also deceased; Hannah, w/o George KNABLE; Susanna, w/o John Knable, deceased ; Mary, who m 1st time to Samuel BERKEY, & 2nd to Christian GOOD, who is deceased; Samuel, resid Taylor Twp, & Stephen, subject of this sketch. Stephen Stutzman was b old homestead, now kwn as Osborn, Dec 20 1825. His education was in old log school-houses, & was taught usually by so incompetent set of teachers, who "boarded around.'' Being reared on the farm, he naturally took to agricultural pursuits. He farmed for his father a no. of yrs. The latter, after considerable importuning on the part of Dr. Henry YEAGLEY, consented to sell the farm to the latter for $6000, whereupon young Stephen, seeing the old homestead abt to pass from the family, made the proposition to buy it himself. The old gentleman was very much surprised at this manifestation of so great an amount of pluck on the part of his son, remarking that he did not see how he, the son, could pay for it; but Stephen persisted, & his father consented. This amt of money, in those days, was comparatively a much larger amt than it would be considered at the present day, & the undertaking foreshadowed that enterprising & thorough going spirit in the young man which contributed so lgly, in after yrs, to his success. He soon, however, sold the farm to George W. OSBORN for $7000. With the surplus $1000 he made a down pymt on a farm of 175 acs in Upper Yoder Twp, for which he pd $3600. Upon that farm he lived, successfully pursuing the arts of husbandry until 1888, when he removed to Westmont, where he has since lived, enjoying the fruits of an industrious & honorable career. Mr. Stutzman is rep, & serv 3 yrs as tax collector of his Twp. He had interest in cause of popular educ, & for 18 yrs serv as memb of school board of his Twp. He was memb German Bapt Ch. Mr. Stutzman has been twice m. His 1st m was March, 1849, to Rachel BERKEY, d/o Peter Berkey, Somerset Co., & resulted in chdn: Peter, agriculturist, Taylor Twp; Sarah, w/o Aaron STRAYER, Morrellville; Franklin, farmer, Upper Yoder Twp; Jacob S., farmer, same Twp; Mary Jane, w/o Slater ALLEN, Johnstown ; Lovina & Lizzie, twins (Lovina is w/o Dr. L.

[NI072113] The following article 14 Feb 1912, is taken from a scrapbook in possession of the PA Room at Uniontown PA Library, Uniontown, Faith Co., PA. Dunbar Man Has Over 100 Living Desc.s 90 yrs of healthy, industrious life, 63 yrs of wedded happiness, & more than 100 descs form the rare combination of blessings vouchsafed to ELIJAH ELLENBERGER, of this town, who is celebrating his b-day today & receiving the congratulations of many relatives & friends. His wife, who will be 81 yrs old next Jul, is sharing in the honors."I was always a boy & I'm a boy yet," said Elijah in referring to his anniversary. "I was ways light & jolly & never worried. I'm a colt yet & I ain't fell once this winter. During this cold weather I had a severe sick spell & was housed up 4 wks, but Thank God, I'm not dead yet. God is leaving me here for some purpose. There's a part God wants me to fulfill. I'm ready to go whenever he calls me & I'm not making any calculations on how long I'll live. "I never run across the man yet who could pick up a cradle or scythe & go away from me. We worked from sun to sun, & if necessary, a good while after the sun went down. We didn't care for the 8 or 9 hr system. I always worked for other people & never had any trouble getting work. In the early days wages were very small & I've worked for 20 cents a day & board after I was full grown man. "When I was 10 yrs old I began working on my own for a living & I've been making it ever since. I did nothing else but farm work & I'd like to be there yet, if I was able to work. I'd like to travel with you 2 wks & show you the farm where I worked for the STRICKLERS, COCHRANS & HUSTONS. I was raised where the town of Dawson now is. It was all farm land then & the best land too."Somerset Co. was my b-place 24 Feb 1822, but my parents brought me to Fayette when I was abt 2 1/2 yrs old. Grandfather ELLENBERGER lived in Upper Tyrone Twp at the upper end of the Stewart STRICKLER coke ovens. The 1st coke I can remember was made in these ovens. They shipped coke to Louisville & Cincinnati & all down the river on flat boats, & I went on 2 or 3 trips, once to New Orleans. "The 1st coke oven STRICKLER built he just ricked it up & covered it just like a big lime kiln, & I claim his coke was better than that made now. They didn't make such large ovens in those days & their coke came round quicker. I've known all the old families around Dawson. I know M.M. COCHRAN, Uniontown, & I knew his ggfather too. What do you think of that? His father was as nice a man as ever I seen." After my marriage I worked 8 yrs for the late Joseph STRICKLER, Upper Tyrone, whose widow, Mrs. Barbara STRICKLER now lives in McKeesport, & she was 90 yrs old last Nov. I worked on a farm until we moved to Dunbar 7 yrs ago. "On 1 Feb 1849, at 8 am, I m Ms Jane M. Bales, as fine a woman as there is in God's world. I never regretted my bargain & I like her better now than when I m her over 63 yrs ago, when I was 27 yrs old & she was not yet 18." It was a trip of 25 or 30 mis on horseback that I took to get my bride. I was working for John W. STAUFFER on Jacobs Creek near Scottdale, & they let me take g-mother STAUFFER'S riding horse to go after the girl. I got her at Youngstown at the foot of the ridge east of Greensburg. The day after the wedding she & I rode horseback to the place where I was working, & we started housekeeping in a log house." For 3 yrs, during the Civil War, I was away from my family. My wife had 7 chldn to take care of when I was in the Army, but she was as stout as a horse & could bind sheaves after the cradle, cut corn, & wash, or do anything. When I was in Harrisburg I was 2 yrs too old to get in the army, but I told a lie & got accepted & fought through the war. I get a pension of $20 a mo now & ought to have more at my age in life. I was in Co. B, 16th Cavalry, enlisting in Connellsville. My bro John was also in the army. Bro Henry was b a cripple & went as far as Camp Howe, Pittsburg & was sent home. "We've had a round dozen chldn, & 9 are living now. We lost 3 girls, 2 of them d of diphtheria the same night in 1878. "I've been a memb of the M.P. Ch since 1872, & my wife is a memb too. Every Sun I'm able I go to Ch & Sun School & I tie up some of your smart, educated people on the scripture sometimes. I didn't go to school hardly any, but studied the Bible. When I was a boy we had to go 4 or 5 mis to school & the snow was very deep in the winter & we had to work in the summer. "I was raised a republican, but the last few yrs I've voted for the man & not the party, unless the man was a Socialist. "Mr. & Mrs. ELLENBERGER & their living descs number 105, counting the wives & husbs of the m ones. There is 1 desc of the 5th gen, this gggchld being the 18 mo old s/o Mr. & Mrs. Roy SHERAW of Hunker. The 9 chldn of this old couple are Mrs. Mary McNALLY, Ruffsdale; James D., Dunbar; Joseph formerly of Ruffsdale; Stewart, Iron Bridge; Mrs. John REED, Westmoreland Co.; Mrs. Buell TARR, Dunbar; Mrs. Ezekiel WILSON, New Castle; Mrs. John SHIREY, Layton; & Mrs. John INGOLD, Ruffsdale.One of the gdaugs, Ms Sadie LOUCKS, Ruffsdale, who is here for the celebration, observes the same b-day as her gfather, having also been b on Feb 24. Mrs. ELLENBERGER is in excellent health & works & reads without glasses. During the past 6 yrs she has quilted 48 quilts.

[NI072114] Born crippled

[NI072121] Parents of Anna were listed as Johann Adam Uhl and Appolonia. (Appears to be a discrepancy in church records or family records). A girl with this name traveled to Amer with the Carl Uhls & was reared as their daug. Did the chld's parents die, necessitating an "adoption" by another Uhl couple whose daug had d recently? There were several Uhl families in the records of this small Parrish, suggesting a fairly broad extended family of Uhls in the area.

[NI072280] In the western end of the Men. settlement during the life of Hans Herr was Bishop BENJAMIN HERSHEY, who with his Bro. Andrew, also a preacher, lived with their father on 500 acres of land, most of which are now occupied by Herr's ice plant, Maple Grove swimming pool & mill, & Abbyville farms. There are two places on this farm where there are remains of old tombstones. Tradition has it that the bishop is interred in the one just south of the Abbyville barns, on a beautiful slope facing south, & that the old meetinghouse was near his tomb, which is unmarked. The plow has gone over the hallowed spot, & rich crops have been harvested by successive farmers, all ignorant of what has transpired here under the care of the first white owner who came into an unbroken forest to make a home for himself & his family." "The first bishop for this area was BENJAMIN HERSHEY, son of immigrant Christian Hershey. Benjamin was b. about 1696 & thus was about 21 yrs old when the family came to America in 1717. He seems to have had a better education for that time than those who were b. in this country. He is reported to have been a great help to his people in writing skills. He is thought to have been the writer of what was known as the Declaration of Peace, a message of appreciation sent to the PA state legislature after the Rev. War. He d. on Jul 29, 1789, at the age of 92, after being bedfast for 5 yrs. He was buried in the Cem. along the Abbeyville Road where the first Men. meetinghouse in Lancaster Co. was built. In 1791 the location for worship was moved to the site along the Rohrerstown Road where the Cem. is now located. The Cem. along the Abbeyville Road was destroyed when the building development took place.

[NI072292] Jacob II lived his adult life on the 475-acre Manor Twp. farm. In 1769 he finished building a house, which still stands today. It has been completely restored & is located on what is now the farm of Dr. & Mrs. Richard Mann. Besides the Manor Twp. farm, Jacob also owned Warwick Twp. land (in what is now Penn Twp.), which he acquired through his wife, Ann Elizabeth Hershey. She acquired this land in 1759 from her Bro., Christian Hershey. Ann Elizabeth's father was Benjamin Hershey, another early Men. bishop. Jacob II was a Men. deacon. He was listed on a deed in 1771 as one of 'the present Elders in the Religious Society of people called Menonists' in Manor Twp.
