At the Family History Center I looked up to see if there was Hans Adam Stieffel in the German IGI.There was, & he was born in 1733 the same as our Adam Stieffel. There were alsohis Parents, grandparents, etc.They were all born in Wurtemburg.We can't be 100% sure, but I think that's where our Adam is from. My gggrandfather is Absolom Boots, a brother to Martin.I was able to go to St. Clair Co., Mo.& I met a 3rd cousin for the first time.She's a Boots descendent.She gave me a lot of information on Martin & his family. Elija is the only one I don't have much information for.All I have is that he was born abt 1819 in Ohio, he married a Sarah, and that they had four children.Could you fill me in about Elija?Did he ever live in Mo.?
