  3. [S544] Stammbaum Wäldchen of the settlers of Blooming Grove, original family tree, printed in German. Stammbaum Wäldchen means "Family Tree Little Woods," being several family trees within a single large registry. This document was recorded exactly as it was printed by Kevin L. Sholder in 1997, and then all but the names were translated into the English language by Mrs. Steiner of the Centerville High School German Department, Centerville, Ohio in 1998.

    The document states at the beginning: "With approximately 20 family trees of families who largely live in Lycoming Co., Pa. and who still have living parents at the turn of the century, mostly from Mühringen and Eßlingen in Würtemberg, and who have moved here."

    At the end is the following explanation or legend: "The letter and numbers of this family tree agree with each other. Branches and smaller branches always were counted from left to right. So one finds the members of their family according to their age. Wherever the family of both parents is given, the families are usually indicated twice, ex. a. 1., designates a family - father's side, while 1.2. indicates the mother's side. In the list of names the children and grandchildren of the father's side only are given, except when the sex of the father is not registered, then the mother's side is given. The letter s. stands for see the following letter a. or b. etc. indicates the family line from that s. person, and the number after that indicates the order then of the ages of the range of siblings, as one can see when one looks up the family tree according to the letters indicating the names and then the branch which is indicated with the designated number. The ever appearing K. = Kinder (children). The † behind a name indicates that the person has died, as well as an entire branch that has died out. The number following indicates the J jahr an unknown date M monat [month] W woche [week] or I Iag [day] of their age = indicated by capital letter. † indicates a person whose name was unknown."

    At the very bottom of the document it states: "Upon request of friends, this has been set up and put into print." This document is 28 inches by 28 inches in size and contains 19 primary families, that make up approximately 500 individuals listed within. Based on known years of birth and death from other sources of persons within this tree, this document was printed circa 1860-1862.

    The founding individuals and families arrived in Pennsylvania between 1804 and 1817. At the time that the Blooming Grove community produced this document many of the original settlers were still living resulting in the high quality of this source.

    The document used for this record was handed down from Johann Michael Stäbler (family m. 2. in the document) to his son Abraham Stabler then to his son Pierce Albert Stabler it remained in the family home, 1453 Job's Run Road, Jersey Shore, Pennsylvania with his son Frederick U. Stabler, it was then passed to Fred's son Daniel Leroy in the year 2000 and then to his son Kurtlan Daniel Stabler, circa 2013, who built a new home in place of the original homestead still located at 1453 Job's Run Road, Jersey Shore, Pennsylvania where it remains a fixture within the home of Kurt and wife Lyndsay (Shader) Stabler.
