Its old world home is in the little prosperous kingdom of Holland, whence came Christian Stineman, the ggfather of the older membs (Jacob C. & George B.) of the family now living in Cambria co. He was tailor by trade & came to US at age 18 yrs. This founder of the family in US 1st located in Schuylkill co, PA, later to Bedford co, whence his son, Jacob Stineman, gfather, removed to 1803, to what is now Cambria co, & located in what was then Conemaugh twp, later Richland twp & now Adams twp, on the waters of South Fork. His location in that section, almost a century ago & antedating the formation of the co itself, was fraught with hardships that characterize the genuine pioneer life. The 1st thing necessary was to bld a cabin to shelter family, then clearing away of woods & planting, & soon the wilderness, whose stillness had never been broken by man, began to assume an appearance fit for habitations. Here, Jacob Stineman spent the remainder of his life, engaged in necessary pursuits of farming & milling, & d Sep 28 1853. He m Elizabeth Ling, a Bedford co lady in 1805, & among his chdn was Jacob Stineman, father of Jacob C. & George B. Stineman.

[NI113102] Johann Jacob Zufall b on Jan 16 1730, Obervorschutz, Hesse, s/o Johannes Zufall, a pastor at Obervorschutz from 1720-1732. Johann matriculated at Marburg Univ Apr 30 1753; also matriculated in 1764, at the “Gymnasium Illustre” in Bremen: “Joh. Jacob Zufall, Obervorschutza-Hassus, S.M.C.” (Sancti Ministerii Candidatus); was one of 4 candidates for PA serv to present themselves to Holland fathers in May 1765, the others being Frederick Berger, Frederick Henop, & Nicholas Pomp. Examined & ordained May 27 1765. Arrived Philadelphia Sep 1765. At a special coetus meeting held in Oct, from which he was absent because of illness, his call to the Tulpehocken charge was confirmed. He began serving 5 congregations: 2 Tulpehockens (1765-1767), Tolpehil (1765-1767), Kimmerling’s (1765-1767), & Millbach (1765-1767). Already in 1766 there were complaints abt his ministry, & apparently they were satisfactorily dealt with. But complaints abt his excessive drinking reoccurred. Upon investigation, the officers of coetus found them to be justified & reported to the 1767 coetus that Zufall was leaving Tulpehocken to accept the pastorate of the 2nd Philadelphia congregation (St. George’s). Coetus then adopted unanimously a resolution that Zufall, “on account of his intemperate habits & the acceptance of a call to a quarrelsome congregation which has never belonged to Coetus, can no longer be regarded as a memb of Coetus, but is herewith excluded from the same totally & for all time.” (MC, pp. 252-253). Served St. George’s, Philadelphia, briefly in 1767-1768. On Aug 12 1767 he presented his credentials to the 2nd Presbytery of Philadelphia, which had already taken his congregation under its jurisdiction. The presby decided to accept him as a memb. The relationship thus established was a fleeting one. A yr later, Zufall complained that St. George’s had not pd his promised salary & asked the presby to help in obtaining what was due him before he left the parish. The presby summoned representatives of the congregation, urged strongly that they meet their obligations, & then terminated their relationship with it. The name of Zufall disappears from the minutes at this time. He returned to the area of his 1st call & serv Kimmerling’s (1768-1769), Heidelbergtown or Schaefferstown (1768-1769), Tolpehil (1769), & Jonestown (1769). He m Mar 20 1769, Veronica Brunner. According to the coetus minutes of Sep 1769, his wife by that time had already left him.

A few minutes after dragging a string of empty cans across the porch of "Hap's" home, which happens to be a double house, the merry-makers were convulsed to hear an excited neighbor-to-neighbor call "Get up quick! They've just thrown 'Hap' on the porch." (In justice to "Hap" it might be added that he was then in the kitchen of his own home, completely sober, getting ready to leave on a hunting trip).

Mrs. Thomas rejoiced the rich family history & legacy of Hickory Hill Farms near the Thomas Mennonite Ch., where b & lived for 75 yrs. But just as she celebrated the impression the family history made on her, she also left an indelible mark upon the family name, her dau.s said. 1 of Mrs. Thomas' passions was making quilts & photographing each 1 she made, they said. "She made abt 100 quilts for chldn & gchldn," her dau., Judy Swank, Thomas Mills, said a telephone interview from her home. "She didn't just make quilts for others. She taught people how to quilt as well." Her work for others did not end with the last stitch of a quilt. Mrs. Swank's hus., Ronald, said Mrs. Thomas canned vegetables yrly, made her own sausage & smoked her own meats. Mrs. Swank said her mother also regularly baked pies, & lots of them. "She made a lot of pies," she said. "But she wouldn't bake just 1 pie, she made them for everyone. She would even make tiny ones for the gkids." Mr. Swank said his mother-in-law was a veritable jack-of-all-trades. "There was not much she didn't do," he said. "She did something for everyone." Mrs. Thomas cared for her husband, Carl, for 28 yrs after he was paralyzed an accident 1971. Being fluent PA Dutch, she also befriended many Amish her area, her dau. said. Mrs. Thomas, who was a direct descendant of Johnstown founder Joseph Johns, combined two of her joys - history & writing -to religiously chronicle the family's history. She pieced together several family trees. Her dau. Janette Thomas-Greenwood, Worcester, MA, picked up those interests & earned a doctorate history. "She loved to write," said another dau., Jeanne Cober, Thomas Mills, a telephone interview from her home. "She has a scrapbook of everything her life. She kept track of everything." 1995, Mrs. Thomas published a compilation of her poetry called "Hickory Nut Tree Remembers," her dau.s said. Mrs. Swank said the poetry is abt Hickory Hill Farms, which has been the family since 1818, & those who lived on it as seen through the eyes of an old hickory tree. addition to her dau.s, Mrs. Thomas is survived by hus., D. Carl Thomas, Laurel View Village, 9 gchldn & 8 ggchldn. The George E. Mason Funeral Home Inc., 1687 Tire Hill Road, Davidsville, is charge of arrangements.
