Adam STAHL was born in Wertemburg, Germany, October 12, 1831. Died of pneumonia at his home in Smith Township, March 22, 1899, aged sixty-seven years, five months and ten days. When two years old he came to America with his parents who settled in Coshocton County, Ohio. There he resided until October 1851, when he removed to Indiana, settling on a farm five miles north of Worthington in the edge of Owen County, but in a few years he again moved to Smith Township, Greene County, where he resided at the time of his death, having been a resident of the township over forty years. In 1856 he was united in marriage to Rebecca KECK. To this union was born six children, four sons and two daughters, all of whom are living, well-to-do, and highly esteemed citizens. Mr. STAHL was very economical and full of untiring energy. Few farmers have ever been more successful. He was twice elected trustee of Smith Township, serving from 1880 to 1884. He was much reserved in his disposition, but he was very decided and firm in his convictions and stood for them with an uncompromising devotion. In all his business transactions he was prompt, earnest, and upright. He was a kind neighbor, a devoted husband and father, and a model citizen. He united with the Methodist Protestant church in the winter of 1891, of which he lived a faithful member until death. For the past four years he was a sufferer from illness and although his sufferings were almost constant and intense at times, he bore it all with patience. Thus another family circle is broken and another good man has gone to his rest. The funeral services were held at the family residence on Friday morning, March 24th at ten o’clock , conducted by Rev. Charley FRAKES, of Dugger, after which the remains were followed by a large concourse of people to the Walker Cemetery for interment. The deceased leaves a wife, six children, one sister and two brothers who have the sympathy of the entire community.
