About the Book

Research on the Stahler family and related names began in 1990 simultaneously with researching information on the Thomas (paternal) and Murphy (maternal) books, which took us from New England to Colorado. The Stahler book took place in the southwest counties of Pennsylvania. All but two surnames in this volume are from Germany and many names repeated in family stories. Because of this, a superscript was used in discussion to clarify generations (also used for footnotes). Stories are remembered. One is Jacob Christman was killed on his farm, and another Jacob Christmen was also killed on the same farm. Or that Gloria’s father was the first athlete playing high school football. They played at Pottsville and won 19–13. “The newspaper account pointed out Pottsville hit a pass receiver in the crowd and he scored two touchdowns through this deception.”

About the Author

Augustus O. Thomas, II, was born November 11, 1927 in Harrisburg and Gloria Jane (Stahler) Thomas was born June 22, 1927 in Allentown, both in Pennsylvania. They have three daughters, Audrey, Diane and Nancy. Tracing their ancestors has been a priority since I retired in 1989 from Pennsylvania Power & Light Co. as a Division Engineering Manager. Gloria was raising our three wonderful daughters. She also was an official in the Daughters of the American Resolution, conducted Acolytes at Church, and played organized bridge.
