I am looking for any information I can find about the Stell family of Wayne County, New York. My g-g-grandfather, Jacob Stell was born in 1828 in France, immigrated to Wayne Co. New York sometime before 1859, when he married Sarah ? there. All I know at this point about Jacob's family is that he had a brother named Christian Stell (b. abt. 1836) Jacob is listed in the 1860 census as living with his wife, daughter and brother in the town of Arcadia, Wayne Co., New York. Jacob fought in the Civil War. After the war, he moved his family first to Wisconsin for a short period, then to Hillsdale County, Michigan for a short period, and finally to Shephard, Isabella Co., Michigan, where he died in 1899. His wife Sarah was 13 years his junior, born in 1841, probably in Wayne Co., New York. She died in Mt. Pleasant, Isabella Co., Michigan in abt. 1923. If anyone knows anything about this family specifically, or about the Stells of Wayne County, New York generally, I would be grateful to hear from you.
