Note: THE FIRST STAHLMAN 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.
