Note: John Stahlmann FRANKLIN COUNTY TRIBUNE (date unknown)
John Stahlmann died at the home of his son, Martin Stahlmann, five miles southwest of Union, Monday, March 12, 1906, aged eighty-five years, two months and twelve days. He was laid to rest in the Union cemetery at one o'clock, Wednesday, March 14, in the presence of nine children, several grandchildren and a number of friends. Owing to the severity of the weather the number attending was not as great as it would have been had the weather been less rigorous. The only services at the grave was an oration by Judge C. F. Gallenkamp, which was in accordance with the wish often expressed by deceased. Judge Gallenkamp spoke in German and in a most impressive and earnest manner.
John Stahlmann was born in Bavaria, Barritts, Germany, January 1, 1821, and came to America in his eighteenth year, landing in Baltimore in October, 1839. He arrived in St. Louis Christmas Eve the same year. In 1840 he came to Franklin County, settling in Washington. He did not remain there long but soon came to Union, where he married. In 1846 he moved into the country, five miles southwest of Union, where he lived until his death. He enlisted in the Mexican War, but the war closed before he reached the scene of battle. He served during the greater part of the civil war in the Mo. Militia, but joined the United States Army before the close. While in St. Louis awaiting transportation to the front, he became disabled by an accident and was discharged.
John Stahlmann was married to Miss Anna Elizabeth Doerr in Union, November 8, 1845. To this union twelve children were born: John Adolph Stahlman, who died near St. Clair on December 6, 1905; Julius who is married and living near Sullivan; Alvina, wife of John Keller, living near Union; Rosa, widow of Godfried Freiberger, living near Fulton, Callaway County; Clara, wife of Emil Sigmund of St. Louis; Edmund Stahlmann, living near Union; A.J. Stahlmann, living in Fulton; Martin, living on the old homestead; Amelia, wife of Andrew J. Fink; Marianna wife of Dan Heeger of Stanton; Ben Stahlmann of Union; and Augusta, wife of Wm. Linz, living in Allenton, St. Louis county. Mrs. Stahlmann, the wife and mother died in 1874. All the children are married and have families but Ben, who has never married. Mr. Stahlmann left a larger line of lineal descendants than any one of who we know. There are eleven living children, sixty-three grandchildren, and eleven great-grandchildren, eighty-five in all. All of the children attended the funeral but Mrs. Freiberger and Mrs. Sigmund.
John Stahlmann always took an intelligent interest in public affairs. he was a free soiler and Benton Democrat until the Republican party was formed. In 1856 he voted for John C. Fremont and in 1860 for Lincoln, and voted the Republican ticket from that time until his death. He was a model husband, a good father, a good citizen and a good neighbor. Honesty was the watchword of his life. His whole existence was guided by this one work. It was his religion; not honesty alone as related to dollars and cents but honesty in all his relations of life, honest in his thoughts, honest in his expressions, honest in giving to others absolute right of their opinions and demanding the absolute right to express his own opinion. To him freedom of thought had no meaning from freedom of expression. And he recognized in others the absolute right he claimed for his own. He had but little faith in creeds but to him good deeds were the source of true happiness and their own reward. He lived a long life and lived it well, and he now deserves a long and peaceful rest. the TRIBUNE extends its sympathies to the bereaved children and grandchildren.
