5 51. Hans Stauffer, b. c1683. d. c1727, Mückenhäuserhof?

The name of his first wife is unknown.

He married secondly, Elisabeth Risser on 10 Jun 1713 at Ellerstadt, Bayern, Germany.

At the time of his marriage he was called a widower and he and Elisabeth were both of the Mennonite sect at
Friedelsheim. Elisabeth was probably the daughter of Hans Rüsser and Verena Rüsser who were
Anabaptist refugees living at Wachenheim near Friedelsheim in 1672. Hans Stauffer does not appear
on the 1715 tenant list at Friedelsheim, but Hans Rüsser, his probable brother-in-law does. After his
marriage, Hans moved to Wartenberg, Bayern where his son Johannes was born in 1715. Hans does
not appear on the list of Mennonites living in the Kaiserslautern area in1717. He apparently moved
to Mückenhäuserhof in about 1716/1717 to join his father Daniel who was a tenant there. He may
have died by 1727 as that is when his brother Christian Stauffer returned from Mannheim to take over
the tenancy at Mückenhäuserhof. Hans’ son Johannes wrote in his Bible record that he was born in
Wartenberg in 1715 but was raised on the Mückenhäuserhof. Another son Christian wrote in his
Bible that he was from Mückenhäuserhof when he married Barbara Kunzi in November 1730 at
Alsheim. In 1739, Hans’ brother Daniel wrote a letter from Alsheim to the local authorities and
mentioned that he was the guardian of some minor children. Daniel may have been referring to the
younger children of his brother Hans. Hans probably lived at Friedelsheim from about 1706 to 1713
and then at Wartenberg from about 1714 to 1716 and then at Mückenhäuserhof from about 1716 to
Stauffer, Hans (I0003)
Written by David Halbstein, 12/2004

Bernard Mark Halbstein was born in July, 1910, the second son of David Lawrence Halbstein and Edna Hershoff. His parents were immigrants from Poland, Latvia or Russia; they spoke Yiddish in their household. His father was a laborer in a shoe factory in Lynn, when they moved to Chelsea he opened a bakery where he sold cakes, cookies and other confections.

During this time, Edna would use the large bakery ovens to bake Challah, the ceremonial Jewish bread used on Shabbat and other occasions. Because she used her hands instead of measuring cups and her eyes and other senses to judge if the dough was "just right", she often had leftover loaves which were put in the bakery window. Family legend has it that her bread was so popular that she was soon baking more than 100 loaves per week for the local community.

As a young man he played the saxophone in an orchestra, playing at local weddings and bar-mitzvahs in and around the Lynn, Ma. area.

He graduated from Boston University School of Medicine, and completed his residency in Cincinnatti, Ohio, with a specialty in Orthopedic Surgery.

His sisters all agree that, even though Bernie was not the eldest, he was the one to be respected in the family. They recount stories of growing up and being taught that Bernie was a very special person, and that they should listen to him, respect him, and seek his advice and counsel.

He enlisted in the Army at the outset of WWII; he said that his eyesight should have excluded him but he convinced the medical examiner to allow him to join. He was a surgeon with the 41st Evacuation Hospital which landed at Omaha Beach, France on June 13, 1944. He served in the Army in Europe for four years

In 1949 he married Anna Jean Alcorn at the home of his sister, Madeline, in Manchester, MA., they settled in Long Branch, NJ and later moved to Oceanport, NJ.

During the 1950's and early 1960's his work was primarily focused on the national polio epidemic. People would travel from great distances to be seen by Dr. Halbstein and his partner, Dr. Nick Ransahoff. Each day he would shower and disinfect his hands before leaving the office, taking no chances that he might bring the disease home to his own family.

In the late 1960's or early 1970's, he went to London to study total hip replacement; bringing this knowledge back to the US and making joint replacement a focal point of his practice. Dr. Ransahoff had long since died, and Dr. Halbstein had a very well known orthopedic practice in Long Branch with Dr. Otto Lehman and Dr. Edwin Otis.

He was interested in boating and fishing, and later took up golf, which he played every chance he could get. He was also an avid gardener; tending to his vegetable garden every summer and producing bushels of tomatoes, cucumbers, and other salad greens.

Shortly after the death of his wife, Anna Jean, in 1976, Bernie moved from Oceanport to Interlaken, NJ, where he lived out his days. He travelled often, enjoying his sem-retirement in places like San Francisco, Paris, Tokyo and Israel.

He retired from surgery in the mid 1980's but remained active as a physician and a consultant for his existing patients. In the early 1990's he was stricken with cancer which he battled successfully for several years. He remained noble and dignified as the disease slowly gained on him, and when he knew there was no more hope for a meaningful recovery elected to discontinue treatment and go home. Because he was so ill, he went instead to the home of his daughter, Amy, where he lived for only a few weeks. His family was with him until his death in November, 1991; everyone was glad to have the opportunity to say good-bye to such a quiet, distinguished and honorable man. He was completely devoted to his family, his sisters, his patients and to the art of healing.

Dr. Halbstein left an indelible mark on everyone he came in contact with. Years after his death, I still encounter people who, upon hearing my name, ask if I am related to him. "I am walking today because of your father", they tell me, or something similar. I have never met anyone who has had less than a kind word or deep admiration for Bernard M. Halbstein.

From a eulogy written by his brother-in-law, Richard Vallon, 1991:

Everything you've heard about Bernie is true. He was indeed a giant in his profession and a tower of strength, comfort and support to his loving family, Jean, Amy, and David. He was devoted to his parents, brother, and four sisters. If I were not his brother-in-law, I would like to have been his brother.

Some of our most memorable summers were those spent with the Halbstein family. Can you imagine anyone inviting his sister, brother-in-law, and five children to spend an entire week at your home every year? Bernie could and did. In retrospect, we ecame an integral part of this beautiful, cohesive family.

Bernie brought new meaning to the word "mensch".

My greatest joy was connecting to that spark of humor in his dignified nature and make him laugh.

Bernie would not want us to mourn him, but to remember him. Goodbye, Bernie, you will live in our hearts forever.

Dr. Bernard M. Halbstein

I was transferred to the 41st in Ft. Bragg from the 11th Airborne at Camp McCall, N.C. Made many friends among the officers, some of whom have left this world—Arthur Post, Frank Pittman, Harry Alpert, Lester Shapiro, George Bush, Van Hammett, Tommy Williams, Wetchler, Nenner, McCook, Abe Friedman. I could go on and on. I still have a vivid picture of each of these fine guys before me. Tommy Williams and Nick Alfano were close friends throughout Tennessee maneuvers and in the E.T.O.

We didn't know which theater we were bound for, but I had a Smith and Wesson with me just in case. The trip on the Queen Mary was smooth, and we were blessedly unaware of the dangers which lurked in the Atlantic. We made the crossing in 3 ½ days.

Dursley was a pleasant interlude and has nostalgic memories. I had a very enjoyable ten days leave and visited Edinburgh with Jim Bogle. I'll not forget it. I was billeted in Dursley in a home with George Nenner. We slept in a feather bed and had hot bricks for foot warmth – and we shared the same bed!

We hardly knew what we were going to meet when we embarked on the James I McKay from Lands' End. Wading off an LCI to Omaha Beach on 13 June was an experience, although we were still oblivious at the time of the carnage of the previous few days.

We got busy in LeMolay and our surgical volume was tremendous. I recall trying to speak French to the visiting kids, and was so tongue-tied that I gave it up, although I had three years of high school French. I did better when we were in Paris later. The Falaise Gap was a worry to us – many of our group dug foxholes. I was a fatalist and couldn't be bothered. It is a helpful philosophy in a war. That's when our hospital was bombed, and it was the only time.

Promoted to Major in August '44. Can't forget Grauel and McDuff – two superb assistants at surgery.

Paris, the day after its recapture, was fascinating. Then, how can we forget Hanmut, Belgium, and the reception of the townspeople? They invited some of us to their homes, and had printed dinner menus.

The winter in Maastricht was uneventful. Much surgery and lots of bridge – some pretty sharp players. Christmas in Maastricht. We were close to Bastogne and the German breakthrough, but were not called upon to function.

Crossed the Roer River in February, 1945, and experience Aachen, Muenchen-Gladbach, Rheidt and finally crossed the Rhine over a pontoon bridge. Our activity in Germany, in Dorsten, etc. is vague in my memory, except when we were poised south of Hamburg to become part of the 18th Airborne Corps to invade Denmark and Norway. We celebrated V.E. Day there on May 9. We ate venison, courtesy of our own sharpshooters.

Then came the long wait. We became a temporary hospital occupation force in Westphalia until we camped more permanently in Bad Nauheim with a short transfer of our unit to Marburg where we again were put to work, with plenty of waiting time back in Bad Nauheim until our homeward-bound numbers were reached.

We did a lot of traveling. Nick Alfano and I visited Rome, Naples, and Capri. We got along fine with his knowledge of the language. (Flying low thru the Alps in a DC-3 was scary). I was sent on a two-week course to Stockholm, by recommendation of Col. Harrell, where a group of officers from various outfits were treated royally. My orders read: “By order of General Eisenhower”. Here, we learned to drink Aquavit – noted for absence of hangover. A side trip to Copenhagen, where I was the only American (British Occupation).

There was a return visit to Paris and London, which looked much different. The children were back in London. Paris was like nothing had ever happened to it.

We embarked for home from LeHavre on a Liberty Ship with no ballast, and I was seasick most of the time. I had lost weight and looked pale, and was really worried how I would look to my parents. We were deviated from debarking in New York because of Navy Day and had to head for Norfolk. Well, what the heck; it was the U.S.A. and that was all that mattered!

After the war, I corresponded with Rene Slater Ward and Jim Bogle. I visited Bogle in Littleton, N.H. I went back to Omaha Beach and London twice.

The cemetery in Normandy was a heartbreaking sight.

In Lemolay, I visited the Mayor and showed him our 41st book. He remembered us, and he gave me a present. St. Lo was a thriving city and completely restored from the ravages of the war.

My four years in the Service was like an unreal dream and memories keep cropping up, but it's wonderful to have someone like Jay Schwartz to keep them alive.

Halbstein, Bernard M. (I0131)
8 Abraham O. Tinstman was born Sept. 13, 1834, in East Huntingdon township, Westmoreland Co., Pa., on the farm upon which are now located the Emma Mine Coke-Works. He received his education in the common schools, attending them during the winter season until about twenty years of age, and continued laboring on the farm with his father until he became twenty-five years old, when he went to Broad Ford, Fayette Co., Pa., to take charge of his grandfather Overholt’s property at that place, the business consisting of the manufacture of the celebrated Overholt whiskey, the cutting of timber by steam saw-mill into car and other lumber, and the farming of the lands connected with the Broad Ford property. He thus continued to manage and do business for his grandfather until 1864, when the two formed a partnership, named A. Overholt & Co. He, however, continued to conduct the business until the death of his grandfather, A. Overholt, who died in 1870, in the eighty-sixth year of his age.

During Mr. Tinstman’s residence in the county and his partnership with his grandfather he caused the erection of the most important buildings in Broad Ford, some of which are the large mill and distillery now there, as well as many houses for the use of employés.

In 1865 he and Joseph Rist bought about six hundred acres of coking coal land adjoining the village of Broad Ford. Mr. Tinstman thereafter (in 1868) sold one-half of his interest in the same to Col. A. S. M. Morgan, of Pittsburgh, Pa., and with him established the firm of Morgan & Co., who put up one hundred and eleven coke-ovens at the point now known as Morgan Mines, on the line of the Mount Pleasant and Broad Ford Railroad, and built one mile of railroad from Broad Ford to said mines, at which place the first coke was manufactured along what is now the Mount Pleasant and Broad Ford Railroad. Morgan & Co. at this time held almost entire control of the coke business of the Connellsville region.

In 1870, A.O. Tinstman with others organized a company, of which he was elected president, and built the Mount Pleasant and Broad Ford Railroad, he holding the office of president until the sale of said road to the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Company in 1876.

About 1871, Mr. Tinstman purchased a portion of Mr. Rist’s interest in the six hundred acres of coal land previously mentioned. Mr. H.C. Frick, who was at this time keeping the books of A. Overholt & Co., was very desirous of starting in business, and aspired for something more than book-keeping, and having shown by his indomitable energy, skill, and judgment that be was not only capable of keeping an accurate and beautiful set of books, but that he was able to conduct business, manage employés, etc., Mr. Tintsman and Mr. Rist associated Mr. Frick with them, under the firm-name of Frick & Co., and made him manager of the association, etc.

This company built at Broad Ford two hundred coke-ovens. The first one hundred were built along or facing the Mount Pleasant and Broad Ford Railroad, and were known as the Frick Works, or "Novelty Works." The other hundred were built in blocks along the Pittsburgh Division of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, and facing the road and Youghiogheny River, and were known as the Henry Clay Works.

In 1872, Col. Morgan and Mr. Tintsman (as Morgan & Co.) bought about four hundred acres of coking coal land at Latrobe, Westmoreland Co., Pa., and there built fifty ovens. About this period and on continuously to 1876 (during the panic period) Mr. Tintsman bought large tracts of coal lands on ‘the line of the Mount Pleasant and Broad Ford Railroad, comprising nearly all the best coal lands in that region; but the pressure of the panic proved excessive for him, the coke business, like everything else, becoming depressed, and he failed, losing everything. But having great confidence that the coke business would revive, and foreseeing that it would be one of the earliest as well as surest of manufacturing interests to recuperate, he bought in 1878 and 1880 on option a large extent of coal land in the Connellsville region, and in 1880 hold about 3500 acres at a good advance over cost price to E.K. Hyndman, who then organized the Connellsville Coal and Iron Company.

This sale enabled him again to take a new start in the world as a business man. He then, in 1880, established the firm of A.O. Tintsman & Co., and opened an office on the corner of Seventh Avenue and Smithfield Street, Pittsburgh, Pa., and soon after bought a half-interest in the Rising Sun Coke-Works, on the June Bug Branch of the Southwest Pennsylvania Railroad. In 1881 he bought the Mount Braddock Coke-Works, located on the Fayette County Branch of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad and Southwest Pennsylvania Railroad; and in the same year he bought the Pennsville Coke-Works, on the Southwest Pennsylvania Railroad, embracing in all about three hundred ovens, all of which he still owns and operates.

Thus we see again verified in Mr. Tinstman’s life that great truth, that those who "try again" earnestly and energetically will succeed. He is to be congratulated in his again being established in business, and being so pleasantly situated and surrounded by home and family relations, as it is well known that while in the county he labored diligently for its welfare; and though he has not received the deserved abundant recompense in a pecuniary manner, yet the people of the county appreciate his labors, especially those who have been benefited directly by the development of the coal interests of the county, and of whom there are not a few.

On July 1, 1875, Mr. Tintsman married Miss Harriet Cornelia Markle, youngest daughter of Gen. Cyrus P. Markle and Sarah Ann Markle (whose maiden name was Sarah Ann Lippincott), of Mill Grove, Westmoreland Co., Pa. He has one son, named Cyrus Painter Markle Tinstman.

from K.O.Critchfield, "Sons and Grandsons of Westmoreland County"

[Memoirs of Allegheny County, Pennsylvania: Personal and Genealogical, Vol. 2; Northwestern Historical Association (1904); pp. 239-240]

ABRAHAM OVERHOLT TINSTMAN, for a quarter of a century as resident of Turtle Creek, was born in East Huntington [sic] township, Westmoreland county, in 1834. He is of German [and Swiss] descent, his [Swiss] maternal grandfather, Abraham Overholt, being one of the prominent early settlers of Westmoreland county. Abraham Overholt married Maria Stauffer, of Fayette county, and had a daughter, Anna, who was married, in 1830, to John Tinstman, father of the man whose name heads this article.

Abraham Overholt Tinstman was the third of ten children. He was educated in the common schools of his native county, worked on a farm until he reached the age of twenty-five, when he became manager of the estate of his grandfather, Abraham Overholt, the estate embracing a mill, distillery and valuable lands, at Broad Ford, Fayette Co., pa. In 1864 he became partner with his grandfather, and continued in this capacity until the death of the latter, which occurred in 1870.

Mr. Tinstman has long been extensively interested in coal and coke. In 1868 he formed a partnership with Col. A. S. M. Morgan, of Pittsburg [sic], under the name of Morgan & Co., and engaged in making coke near Broad Ford, Pa. In 1871 he formed a partnership with Messrs. Frick and Rist, under the name of Frick & Co., and continued with this concern in the manufacture of coke until 1880, when he established the firm of A. O. Tinstman & Co., in Pittsburg [sic], being engaged in the same business for some years.
Since 1885 he has dealt extensively in the purchase and sale of coal lands, his office being at No. 425 Fourth Ave., Pittsburg [sic]. In 1870 Mr. Tinstman was one of the organizers of the Mount Pleasant & Broad Ford railway company, and was president of the company until the road was purchased by the Baltimore & Ohio railroad company, six years later.

Mr. Tinstman was married, July 1, 1875, to Harriet Cornelia [Markle], daughter of Gen. C. P. [Cyrus Painter Markle] and Sarah (Lippincott) Markle, of Westmoreland county, Pa., and has one son, Cyrus P. [Cyrus Painter Tinstman], who has completed the civil engineering course at the Pennsylvania military college, at Chester, Pa. Mr. Tinstman and family have lived in Turtle Creek since the erection of their beautiful home there in 1879. The site of a pioneer cabin, long since gone to decay, and the home of a Mrs Myers, who gave food and shelter to George Washington, are on the Tinstman grounds. During the Civil war, when General Morgan was making his famous raid through the State of Ohio, Mr. Tinstman raised a company in twenty-four hours at Broad Ford, Pa., and went to Salineville, where they arrived just in time to assist in Morgan's capture. 
Tintsman, Abraham Overholt (I0359)
9 Abraham Overholt, [was] also of German [Swiss] descent, and who was born in Bucks County, Pa., in 1774, and came to East Huntingdon township, Westmoreland Co., Pa., about the year 1800, and settled on a farm on which the village of West Overton now stands. He married Miss Maria Stauffer, of Fayette County, Pa., and both being of frugal, industrious, and economical dispositions, accumulated property rapidly, lived together harmoniously, and left as monuments of skill and judgment in building and improvements some of the most substantial buildings of East Huntingdon township, having built the entire village of West Overton, including mill, distillery, etc.

10 According to Betty Bishop Willoughby, a Ketternring researcher, Johann Michael was a stocking-weaver.

From Robert Ketron:

. Michael came to America in 1765; I know the name of the ship and the date she arrived in Philadelphia. Your ancestor must have come about the same time as other relatives in 1837 (including the grandfather of Charles Franklin Kettering, our most esteemed relative), I am certain that my 4G came with his first cousin as a lark because one of their older cousins decided to emigrate with his entire family. I have no idea why yours did other that they were about the same age (28) and single. Bothe married American girls of German descent within a short period. 
Kettenring, Johann Michael (I0334)
11 According to family lore, Thurman was working in the fields at age 13 when he complained of a stomach ache. His father did not believe him, thinking he was only trying to get out of work. He collapsed and died of a burst appendix. Brown, Thurman T (I1690)
12 According to H.H. Catron and others,

"Casper Kettering was a carpenter. He is said to have fallen off a roof (Warren, Pa) and been killed. Said to have been buried in the old Jackson Farm Cemetery."

"It is know known when (Wm) Casper Kettering died - the story is he was a carpenter and fell of a roof and broke his back and died."

"...[note as of 1956] Mr. Hudson, Warren County, authority on umarked graves, believes he has the name Kettering as being buried on Jackson Farm Cemetery. The name was familiar to him."

Kettering, William Casper (I0177)
13 According to H.H. Catron's research, the Date of Death for George C. Kettering is 1913, however, his headstone is engraved "1912" Kettering, George Casper (I1630)
14 According to her obituary (below), Eunice Barbara Rose was a descendant of Jean-Baptiste Baudreau de Graveline who came to the Gulf Coast with Pierre Le Moyne D'Iberville in 1699.  Rose, Eunice Barbara (I2600)
15 According to Jules Dudock autobiography, Sam Polansky was fourteen years old in 1904:

"They were very happy to be here, even though there was no money to speak of. They were not afraid to face hardship, courage was their inheritance. Sam was fourteen years old and Max eleven full of hope and ambition, the year was 1904 and Simon was back there in Germany out of danger of the gangsters back in Colonia, Romania. They missed him and wanted him with them in New York too." 
Polansky, Sam (I2660)
16 According to Jules Dudock's autobiography, Max Polansky was eleven years old in 1904:

"They were very happy to be here, even though there was no money to speak of. They were not afraid to face hardship, courage was their inheritance. Sam was fourteen years old and Max eleven full of hope and ambition, the year was 1904 and Simon was back there in Germany out of danger of the gangsters back in Colonia, Romania. They missed him and wanted him with them in New York too. ' 
Polansky, Max (I2661)
17 According to Jules Dudock's autobiography, Simon Polansky was sixteen years old in 1904:

"When they arrived in Bremen, Germany, they found themselves in a very agonizing position. They did not have enough money to pay for the passage after all their figuring, the price was raised after they had started out. They had no choice but to leave Simon, the oldest of the three brothers, in Bremen. He was sixteen years old, and a rabbi helped him to get him a job taking care of some horses in the area near the docks..."

"They [Samuel, Anna, Ida, Sam and Max Polansky] were very happy to be here, even though there was no money to speak of. They were not afraid to face hardship, courage was their inheritance. Sam was fourteen years old and Max eleven full of hope and ambition, the year was 1904 and Simon was back there in Germany out of danger of the gangsters back in Colonia, Romania. They missed him and wanted him with them in New York too." 
Polansky, Simon (I2659)
18 According to Lisa Dreyer, his g-g-granddaughter, he died from wounds received in the Civil War Bouch, Joseph (I1540)
19 According to notes compiled by H.H. Catron, William Casper Kettering died as the result of a broken back sustained in a fall from a roof. Elizabeth took her six children on a raft down the Allegheny River to a place called "Logan's Eddy" near Delmont, where she was reunited with her father.

Please see Jacob and Casper Kettering History for more details

According to the 1840 Census for Warren, Pennsylvania, a "Casper Kittering" was enumerated. His family consisted of:

Free White Persons:

Male, Under 5 years - 2 (corresponding to Casper, John)
Male, bet. 5-10 years - 1 (corresponding to Jacob)
Male, bet. 40-50 years - 1 (corresp. to Wm Casper)
Female, under 5 years - 1 (corresponding to Hannah)
Female, bet. 5-10 years - 1 (corresponding to Isabel)
Female, bet. 30-40 years - 1 (corresponding to Elizabeth

A sixth child, Mary, was born in 1840.

According to the 1850 Census rolls for various townships (see notes below), by this time the Kettering children had been taken in by other families, leading me to believe that William Casper Kettering and Elizabeth Ashbaugh met with an untimely death within this decade.

Kettering, William Casper (I0177)
20 According to source, Charlotte died in early childhood Spencer, Charlotte (I2001)
21 According to the 1860 Federal Census of Kitanning, Armstrong County, PA, "E. Spencer" was 48 years old, and the head of a household wherein lived William Spencer, age 17, Rosana Spencer, age 18, and Chambers Spencer, age 22.  Waltenbaugh, Elizabeth (I0401)
