Notes for Daniel STAMM

Biographical Sketch (1892):657, p. 197-198. "They were among the early settlers of Bethlehem Township, Mr. and Mrs. Stamm settling in the woods and making their home in a rude log cabin. They endured all the hardships of pioneer life and labored industriously to place their farm under good cultivation. Mrs. Hensel was one in a family of ten children born to her parents, of whom three are living, her sisters being Mrs. Mary C. Whistler and Mrs. Abraham Taylor."

Biographical Sketch (1997):855, p. 25-26. "Daniel - identification as a son of Nicholas in brother Benjamin's petition to have his father's estate partitioned. Daniel was born 1 August 1787 in Berks County, Pennsylvania. He married Sarah Fromm, born 14 October 1791 in Pennsylvania, the daughter of Frederick and Christina Frohm. Daniel's first six children were born in Centre County, Pennsylvania, before the family moved to Stark County, Ohio, where the balance of the family was born (an additional three children). According to an article about sixth child Sarah (married to Peter Hensel) in The Biographical and Historical Annals of Stark County, published in 1892, daughter Sarah moved to Ohio as an infant of 12 mos. (although the Stark County, Ohio, census of 1850 lists Sara, age 22, as having been born in Ohio). "They were among the early settlers of Bethlehem Township, . . . settling in the woods and making their home in a rude log cabin. They endured all the hardships of pioneer life and labored industriously to place their farm under good cultivation . . ." Daniel died 24 Feb 1866 and is buried in the Smoketown Reformed Cemetery, Stark County, Ohio. Daniel's wife Sarah's death date and burial place are not known."

1790 U.S. Census:97, p. 28. Daniel enumerated in the household of his father Nicholas Stamm in Bern Township, Berks County, Pennsylvania as one of 7 males under the age of 16. Daniel was age 2 in 1790.

1817 Estate Release:1632 On 28 April 1817 Frederick Fromm and his wife Polly released their rights to the tract of land belonging to Frederick Fromm, deceased. The release names the legal heirs of Frederick Fromm as follows: "the said Frederick From dying intestate seized and possessed in fee of the said tract of land with the appurtenances which became the property of the legal heirs of the said deceased, which Frederick and Jonas From, parties to these presents did take, at the appraisement, and which the remaining heirs, to wit, Frederick Neighman and Barbara his wife, Daniel Frybarger and Catherine his wife, Daniel Boone and Magdalena his wife, Daniel Stem and Sally his wife, Elizabeth From and Susan From heirs and legal representatives of the said Frederick From, deceased, did by their pleas bearing the date the eighth day of April A.D. 1816, grant, sell, and release . . . " This document released Frederick and Polly From's share of the land to Jonas From for $2,444.71. It is likely this was done in preparation for Frederick and Polly's departure for Ohio. This release of rights proves that Daniel Stamm was married to the daughter of Frederick Fromm.

1828 Petition to Sell Land of Nicholas Stamm, deceased:1314, frames 532-533. "To the Honorable the Judges of the Court of Common Pleas of the County of Berks, now composing an Orphan's Court for said County: The petition of Benjamin Stam, of the sons and heirs at law of Nicholas Stam, late of Bern Township, Berks County, deceased, humbly shewith that your petitioner's said father lately, to wit on or about the sixth day of October A.
