From Paul Herbert Stahlman’s notes

Originally edited March 16, 2003 by Steven Andrew Stahlman

The First Generation: Jacob Stahlman

Jacob Stahlman was born in Germany circa 1730-40 as best guess. He immigrated to  America, traveling on the ship “Duke of Wirtenberg”, arriving in Philadelphia, PA on October 16, 1751. List 176C from Rotterdam, Holland and Cowles, England. Passenger list 169 shows Jacob Stahlman entered, as signed by self, not with an “X”. On the same day of his arrival he applied for and was granted citizenship from the British government. This information is taken from “Pennsylvania German Pioneers”, volume 1 by Sharsburger, pages 475 and 476 and “Duke of Wirtenberg” list 176C at the court house in Philadelphia, PA. He appears to have married Anna Mary Lemmerin in February 1758 in Wilmington, New Castle Delaware. His second wife may be Catherine Chersherin, married in November 1759 also at Wilmington, New Castle Delaware. 

It is assumed that he settled in what was then Lancaster County, PA. In 1778, records show that a young man we suppose to be a son of Jacob enlisted in the Lancaster County Militia. That man was “private” John Stahlman.

The Second Generation: John (Johann) Stahlman

The son of Jacob Stahlman. John (Johann) was born about 1758 in what was then Berks County, PA. John then acquired large land holdings in what is now Schuykill County, PA. (Formed from Berks and Northhampton Counties in 1811). John married Eleanor Nellie McCrory in 1785 and lived with her in Lower Mahantongo Township in Schuylkill County. She died on March 18, 1846 in Limestone Township, Clarion County, PA. John died November 12, 1823 in Deep Creek Valley, Lower Mahantongo Township in Schuykill County. He served as a private in the Pennsylvania Berks County Militia.  About 1836-37 Eleanor and all of John’s sons except Solomon went to Clarion County, PA and settled in Red Bank and Limestone Townships. John had eleven children. Solomon and most of his descendents spelled their last name “Stallman” in lieu of the correct original spelling of “Stahlman”.

The Third Generation: Jeremiah Stahlman

The son of John (Johann) Stahlman. Jeremiah was born March 17, 1794 in Deep Creek Valley, Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania. He married Elizabeth Catherine Young (1826?). She was born in 1800-02. However, one source, The “Jefferson County Pennsylvania – Her Pioneers and People” published 1917 reports that his Jeremiah’s wife’s name was Elizabeth (Cornelius Stahlman biography) (assume 1816-17 as the date of this marriage). The “History of Jefferson County” published 1888 reports Catherine Young as Jeremiah’s wife under Gabriel Stahlman’s biography. Perhaps both are correct and the first, Elizabeth, may have died in Schuylkill County before the move to Clarion County. 

Jeremiah moved to Clarion County about 1836-37 with his mother and brothers. Jeremiah died in December 1866 in Limestone Township, Clarion County and may be buried on his farm there, exact location unknown. Jeremiah had eleven children, but was his wife or wives Elizabeth Catherine or Catharina Sarah Young????
