PREFACE. 

Among the papers of my father, the late Lewis H. Steiner, 
were several pages of notes towards a genealogy of our family. 
These have been taken up and much amplified, and the work is 
now issued, as it is not likely that further delay would elicit many 
more facts of importance. It has been a pleasant task to me to 
search out the various branches of the family tree. 

Almost all to whom application was made have been helpful, 
but especial thanks are due for time spent and interest shown in 
the work, to Miss Alice V. Derr,- Mrs. Marcus A. Woodward, 
Miss Ola Michaels, Gen. John A. Steiner, Mr. Thomas C. Stoner, 
Mrs. Wm. H. Lewis, Miss Rachel L. Eader, Mr. Edward T. 
Schultz, Mr. John G. Wilson, Mr. Charles A. S. Steiner and Mr. 
Paul Wisenall. We have not been famous; but, to quote my 
father's words, we have been a " family whose members have lived 
and died as plain, honest, law-abiding, citizens."

PART I. 

SKETCHES FROM THE EARLY HISTORY OF THE 
STEINER FAMILY IN GERMANY. 

(Translated by Lewis H. Steiner.) 

The family arms of the family of Steiner von Steindorf consist 
of a silver shield, in the middle of which is displayed a red bear in 
an erect posture. A closed helmet covers the shield, having, as a 
crest, a red bear's head looking to the left. The ornaments of the 
arms consist of foliage, half red and half gold, the same being 
placed on a red stelle with small white pearls. Below the shield 
there sweeps a white band (Wappenband) with a red back, bear- 
ing the name Maxmylian Steiner in red ecclesiastical letters. 
The whole constitutes a true representation of the arms which 
Ludwig of Bavaria presented to the ancestor of the Steiner family 
at the tournament of Goslar. 

The diploma of nobility, as well as the letters, which were 
confirmed by Emperor Sigismund in 1397 and announced at 
Erfurt, July 26, 1397, are to be found in the original in the 
Imperial Chamber at Wetzlar. A copy is in the archives of 
family arms (Familien-Wappen-Archiv) at Vienna. 

The imperial archives of the nobility 'of the empire at Wetzlar, 
and registry office of family ancestry and arms at Vienna, con- 
tain, with reference to the origin of the noble family of Steiner, 
the following material, the correctness of which is made clear and 
evident by reference to the books of heraldry and tournaments 
at Speyer and Frankfort-on-the-Main. 

These show that the family of Steiner appears for the first time 
as a noble house in one of the archives of the Reichskammer of 
the Elector of Saxony, which is dated " Regensburg, 226. of the 
month of August in the year of our Saviour 1340." As the cause

of this record appear the decrees of the Criminal Court (Hals- 
gerichtsordnung), from which it appears that Ludwig von Stein- 
dorf had been cited from his family seat at Steindorf in the 
Oberlausitz in consequence of a quarrel with Uffo von Bonken- 
burg, by the Superior Court at , Regensburg, for a breach of the 
Landfriede, and that, through the management of Anselm, the 
Bishop of Wurzburg, who was a brother of Uffo von Bonken- 
burg, he was placed under the imperial ban, and, in consequence 
of this, his family castle was confiscated and the possession of the 
same was adjudged to the complainant Uffo. 

Ludwig von Steindorf went into a monastery at Goslar and 
died in the same, March 27, 1342, from grief and anguish at the 
rendition of so unjust a judgment. It appears that after some 
months, the Emperor, by a decree of December 31, 1341, three 
months before the death of the condemned, had annulled the 
imperial ban. But the edict was concealed and held back by the 
trickery of the revengeful Bishop of Wurzburg, who bore the 
responsibility of the same readily on account of the great influ- 
ence he possessed at court. 

It appears from the records of this court that the father of Lud- 
wig von Steindorf — the head of a family (Stammvater) so widely 
distributed — was named 

I. MAXIMILIAN STEINER. 1 

He was made a knight (Ritter) on the 26th of November, 131 1, 
by Ludwig of Bavaria. A singular occurrence was to be thanked 
for this good fortune. He was a squire (Knappe) of the Count 
of Mannsfeld, and saved the life of his royal highness, Ludwig of 
Bavaria, in a bear-hunt, having freed him from great peril of life 
by seizing a bear that rushed at him and strangling it with both 
hands. The king created him knight (Ritter) at Goslar, at the 
next tournament, and presented him with a silver armor (Riis- 
tung) and a costly shield, the arms of which exhibited a red bear 
on a silver field. But as Maximilian was without property and 
possessed nothing besides his gigantic strength and bravery, 
his brave and fearless heart, his king and lord gave him a 
knight's castle which he had w"On from Giinther, the Bishop of 
Wurzburg, at (Brettspiele) draughts. This Maximilian made his 



THE GENEALOGY OF THE STEINER FAMILY. 7 

family castle (Stammschloss), and changed its name from Gun- 
thersburg, which it had been called before, to Steindorf. 

He married shortly afterwards Margaretha von Bassenheim, 
the daughter of his neighbor, Gottfried von Bassenheim. But in 
the midst of the happy days of his marriage, the duty of gratitude 
and the voice of his fatherland called him to the battle-field for 
his king. He collected from his neighborhood a small company 
(Fahnleinschaft) of 60 brave lancemen, and, as their captain 
(Feldhauptmann), fought under His Majesty Ludwig, and fell in 
the battle given against Frederick of Austria at Muhldorf at the 
head of his faithful followers. His widow renounced the pleasures 
of the world and entered the nunnery of Wunsiedl, known as 
Maria Schutz, where, in a short time, she gave birth to a son, to 
whom she gave, at baptism, the name of the king in whose cause 
her faithful spouse had fallen. Grief for her lost husband did not 
permit her to live to see the coming year, and she died, Decem- 
ber 29, 1312. 

Her only son, 

II. LUDWIG, 2 

in accordance with the wish of his grandfather, was surrendered 
to the same, who managed also most faithfully his 1 , castle of Stein- 
dorf. But Ludwig had scarcely attained the age of youth when 
this grandfather, Gottfried von Bassenheim, died, and, as no other 
heirs had legal claims, the knight's estate of Bassenheim fell to 
him. Uffo von Bonkenburg set up unfounded and illegal claims 
to a part of the landed property belonging to Bassenheim, which 
Ludwig would not recognize. This state of affairs led to much 
quarrelling and contention. His antagonist at length knavishly 
played the part of peace-maker, and declared that all ill-will 
should be done away with and all claims be relinquished if Lud- 
wig von Steindorf would marry Gertrude, the only daughter of 
Uffo. But Steindorf married a poor but virtuous maiden, the 
daughter of the sacristan (Kiister) of the cathedral of Sancta 
Clara, and gave, as a bridal gift and as dower at the same time, 
the castle of Bassenheim with all its enclosures, grounds and 
cattle. From this time on the quarrel with his ancient and irrec- 
oncilable enemy broke out anew. 



8 THE GENEALOGY OF THE STEINER FAMILY. 

Ludwig's spouse, Adelgunde, bore him three sons — Ludwig, 
Bernhardt and Roland — and died at the birth of the last two, 
who were twins. As if anticipating her own death, she be- 
queathed to her children, two days before the day of their birth 
and her death, the castle of Bassenheim with all the grounds 
thereto belonging, by a will written by the abbess of the Sancta 
Clara Chapter. Her corpse was scarcely interred in the convent 
vault when Uffo von Bonkenburg once more broke his solemn 
oath with Ludwig von Steindorf, and he, the continual disturber 
of the Landfriede, relying on the power which, at that time, his 
brother Anselm, the Bishop of Wiirzburg, possessed with the 
court, stepped forth as complainant, knowing he could not affect 
his courageous opponent by force of arms. As was mentioned 
before, Ludwig lost, by the declaration of the imperial ban, his 
family possessions, and these fell, by the cunning influence of the 
Bishop of Wurzburg, to his brother Uffo, whilst Ludwig died in 
the cloister. Before he had determined to carry out this so in- 
comprehensible resolution — to terminate his life within the walls 
of a monastery — he committed the care of his children to the 
abbess of the neighboring convent of Sancta Clara, and the super- 
intendence of their education to his tried friend Oscar Benti- 
voglio, whom he constituted guardian of the same, and who, for 
some years, had been castellan of the castle at Steindorf. He 
faithfully performed his duty as friend, and died at an advanced 
age, after he had experienced the pleasure of having the twins 
that had been entrusted to his care educated and accomplished in 
tournaments and the use of arms. 

III. LUDWIG, 3 

the eldest of the sons, on the day of his wedding with Agnes von 
Hohenberg-Kolbina, gave his lawful name of Steindorf to the 
castle heretofore called Bassenheim. He had with his consort 
two daughters and one male heir, 



THE GENEALOGY OF THE STEINER FAMILY. 9 

VI. WILHELM, 4 

who studied jurisprudence in Worms, sold the castle of Steindorf 
and died unmarried. 

The castle of Steindorf was afterwards owned by the Lord von 
Kitzbuchel, and was later, in the religious wars, entirely destroyed. 

The name of the family Steiner was only perpetuated by 
Roland, as IV. Bernhardt 3 died without leaving male offspring 
by his spouse Octavia Fehland. 

V. ROLAND STEINER 3 

filled the office, for some years in Speyer, of Stadthauptmann, a 
very respectable position sought after by many of the most patri- 
cian citizens. He was sent as deputy to the imperial election at 
Ghent, when Carl IV. was elected. The coronation took place 
in Aachen, and Roland was presented by the emperor with a 
gold chain of honor, to which his portrait was attached. He was 
immediately married to Conradine Schauenstein, to whom he 
had already been affianced. The burghers of the city gave him a 
banquet of honor, which was celebrated with princely splendor 
and lasted for three days. His offspring consisted of two sons 
and three daughters. He died in the year 1374, and his wife 
followed him in the same year. 

VII. ALOYSIUS, 4 

the eldest son, withdrew from the world and took the place of 
monastery steward (Klostervogt) in Speyer. He married Ger- 
trude von der Miihlen, the daughter of a Holland merchant, and 
met his death in 1403 in the waters of the Rhine, his boat, during 
a night passage, having been dashed on a concealed rock and 
sunk. He left two sons; a third, X. Johann or Hans by name, 
was abducted from the paternal mansion when a child without 
any one afterwards being able to secure information as to his 
enigmatical disappearance or his further fate. 

IX. ANDREAS GOTTFRIED B 
was the younger son, and died as Dean of the Cathedral in May- 
ence. He stood in high estimation on account of his learning, 
and was for a long time the right hand of the Archbishop.

VIII. THEODOR, 5 

the eldest son of Aloysius Steiner, married Antonia Splinter, and 
as even in his early years he showed a taste for military life, 
entered in the imperial service; fought later in the Hussiten- 
kriege, and died in the year 1449, in a fall from his horse. He 
left behind three sons, who, on account of their numerous off- 
spring, deserve to be called the proper (Stammhalter) heads of 
the Steiner family afterward so numerous. 

XL FRIEDERICH THEODOR, 6 

the eldest son, studied law in Vienna, entered into the Austrian 
imperial service, and was afterwards made Imperial Councillor 
(Kaisersrath). He married Maria Schweppe, daughter of the 
burgomaster at Vienna, and had four sons. After she died, in 
1460, Friederich married the young widow Amalie, Baroness von 
Einsiedel, who bore him five other sons, named XIII. Ernst, 7 
XIV. Julius, 7 XV. Ludwig/ XVI. Winfried 7 and XVII. Chris- 
tian ; 7 Ernst and Julius entered the army, the others and XVIII. 
Friederich, 7 XIX. Johann 7 and XX. Leopold, 7 of the first mar- 
riage, dispersed to Bavaria, Suabia, and on the Rhine, so that we 
are unable to find any further connected information about them. 

XII. GEORG 6 

was the younger brother of Friederich Theodor, and the second 
son of Theodor; he entered the service as page (Leibpage) at the 
court of " Charles the Bold " — Duke of Burgundy, and as the 
latter made him a knight, he remained in his train. He married 
Elisabeth Durand, the daughter of a rich merchant of Ghent, and 
perished at the battle of Nancy, 1477. He left three small sons, 
XXII. Georg/ XXIII. Ludwig 7 and XXIV. Herrmann, 7 who 
moved with their mother to Ghent. 

XXIX. WILHELM, 6 

the youngest son of Theodor, remained in Speyer; owned a very 
extensive commercial business, and was the president (Vor-

stand) of the Merchants' Guild. His wife, Isabella Horst, 
lamented for years the loss of her husband, who died, in conse- 
quence of a cold, on his return from a business excursion to the 
Netherlands, at Aachen, in 1480, leaving two sons, 

XXX. ADOLF 7 AND XXXI. MARTIN. 7 

The former died some weeks after his marriage. Martin, having 
learned the business of goldsmith, went to Coblentz and settled 
there as a jeweller. On a journey to Suabia, Leopold Bernauer 
released him from the hands of highway robbers, who attacked 
him with the view of plunder. He formed the most intimate 
friendship with his deliverer, purchased a small estate for him, 
and married his sister Amalie, to whose family the celebrated 
Agnes Bernauer, who met an unfortunate death in the Donau, 
belonged. Martin ofterwards went to Brazil and enriched him- 
self in the then newly-discovered diamond diggings. Shortly 
after his return he died in 1498, and left his large family consid- 
erable possessions. (This story is, of course, incorrect, but I 
know not how to correct it. — B. C. S.) He had five sons — 
Martin, 8 Albert, 8 Friedrich, 8 Moritz 8 and Adalbert. 8 

XXXII. MARTIN 8 

was established as a goldsmith in Niirnberg, where he died, 1509, 
a mysterious death, and when his corpse was examined it ap- 
peared that he had been poisoned. Very weighty and unequivo- 
cal grounds of suspicion rested on his wife, who had had secret 
intercourse with a Doctor Bonefacius, who was universally feared 
in Niirnberg. Public opinion designated him as a magician, and 
every one shunned his neighborhood. But satisfactory evidence 
could not be produced; even the application of torture wrung no 
confession from her. She was banished by public opinion from 
the country; all the costly stones and ingots of gold secretly put 
away by her at the death of her husband were taken from her and 
she was driven over the borders. The people attacked the house 
of the doctor, tore it down, burnt the great books out of which 
he, as they asserted, invoked the evil spirits, and hunted him with

dogs from the precincts of the imperial city. Martin left a son 
— XXXVII. Gotthardt 9 — who, however, died before he had 
attained his majority. The very considerable property left be- 
hind melted away under the fearful law costs, which were only 
terminated after 60 years, during which more than 30 Steiners 
von Steindorf, male and female bearers of the name, were claim- 
ants for the treasures of the inheritance. 

XXXIII. ALBERT 8 

lived first in Frankfort-on-the-Main, and came to Cologne-on- 
the-Rhine, where he died, 1516. He left seven sons and five 
daughters, of whom the former, after the death of their father, 
mostly left Cologne without our being able to give an account 
of them. XXXVIII. Markus " Edler was one of them. 

XXXIV. FRIED RICH 8 

had early studied theology at Meissen and distinguished himself 
by his spirited defense of the principles of the Lutheran faith at 
the Diet called by the Elector John of Saxony at Schmalkalden. 
He died in Meissen, having only one son, Oswald, 9 who dedi- 
cated himself likewise to the theological profession, and, while 
pastor in Lutzen, was killed in a revolt of the peasants. 

XXXV. MORITZ 8 

entered into military service after he had squandered his estate in 
Italy. He stood in great favor with the Princess of Anhalt, and 
very different accounts were given in those days of the nature of 
the connection in which he stood to her. He had many love 
intrigues, through which he was involved almost weekly in duels, 
but always came off victor. In the battle of Pavia, 1525, he very 
particularly distinguished himself, and it was attributed princi- 
pally to him that the king, Francis I., was taken in the same. 
He married Bianca Graselli of Brescia, celebrated for her beauty, 
and from that time forward changed his dissolute mode of life. 
He lived several years in Lothringen and died, 1555, at Colmar, 
where he had been a widower for four years before his death. 
He left four sons, concerning whose career no records are left. 



THE GENEALOGY OF THE STEINER FAMILY. 



XXXVI. ADALBERT 



13 



was the youngest brother, and Consistorialrath in Augsburg. 
From the deepest and most sincere conviction of evangelical 
truth, went to Wittenberg; was a friend of Luther's, and was in 
correspondence with him long afterwards, when he returned to 
Augsburg. He contributed very much towards the religious 
peace determined at Niirnberg, 1552, and was, until his death, 
the court theologian (Hoftheologe) of Moritz of Saxony. He fell 
in the last capacity in the battle of Seivorshausen, in 1554, leaving 
five sons, Adalbert, 9 Johann, 9 Carl, 9 Leopold 9 and Adolph. 9 The 
first two settled at Tubingen; Carl died without male offspring 
in Wiirzburg, and the younger brothers died without our being 
able to find anything further about them, notwithstanding the 
zealous searches of their brothers. Nothing is extant also with 
reference to the families of the two eldest. 

Hitherto we have only been able to give the succession of the 
heads of the Steiner family; the following notices are with refer- 
ence to separate persons, but are based on personal searches. 

XVIII. FRIED RICH VON STEINER 7 

was professor of medicine in the university founded at Tubingen 
on October 9, 1477, by Count Eberhardt mit dem Bart. He was 
afterwards rector of this high school, and died in 1491. He 
left only two sons, but many daughters. From his family 
papers, which were in possession of his sons, it appeared that he 
was a son of Friederich Theodor Steiner von Steindorf. Both 
of his children, one of whom was named 

XXVII. HUGO, 8 

lived for some years in Tubingen, which' is all that is known of 
them. His name does not appear on the baptismal register, 
whence it is to be supposed that they were not born in Tubingen. 
Their mother died some years before their father. 

There lived in Fulda, quite retired from the world, an old man. 
concerning whose family no one had any knowledge. He died 



14 



THE GENEALOGY OF THE STEINER FAMILY. 



in 1479 and left a considerable estate. He was in possession of 
a small house, never suffering himself to be seen, and holding no 
communication with his fellow-men, appearing to live as though 
he had an aversion to the living. He gave no alms to the poor, 
and was only known by the name of " der alte Steinmarder." 
It was discovered after his death that his name was 

X. HANS VON STEINER, 5 

and that he had been enticed away from his parents' house by a 
woman when a boy five years old and taken to Poland. Here 
he was educated and travelled to Palestine, Jerusalem, Egypt, 
from whence, thirty years before his death, he came to Fulda 
and lived secluded from the world. Who removed him from his 
father's house, if he ever had a wife, whence came his wealth, 
why he shunned mankind with so much enmity, and why he 
never returned to his home, — a veil enshrouded these questions 
and no one ever learned the answer to them. He owned many 
Eastern manuscripts which no one could understand. It is an 
undeniable fact that he was the son of Aloysius Steiner — the 
Klostervogt who died in 1403 — who, when a child at Speyer, 
had disappeared in so mysterious a manner. As Hans von 
Steiner died without a will, considerable property fell to the 
exchequer, since no heirs appeared. 

In 1520, forty years after this, there arrived at Fulda a (Ritters- 
mann) young knight, 

XLI. LUDWIG VON STEINER, 8 

and proved from his baptismal certificate (Taufschein) and other 
documents that he was a relative of the deceased Hans von 
Steiner, and then instituted a process for the inheritance so long 
unclaimed. Some of the most distinguished jurists appeared on 
his side, but that which the exchequer ever seizes is not given up 
for slight reasons. Ludwig carried his case to the Emperor, 
Charles V., at the Imperial Diet of Worms. We learn that Lud- 
wig himself was afterwards murdered, and the suit thus naturally 
came to an end. With reference to the mode of his death, the 
following appears in an old chronicle of Worms. At Worms, at

15 



the Imperial Diet, which was opened April 18, 1521, a Ludwig 
Steiner von Steindorf was present, who was so transported by the 
defense of Luther that he embraced Luther, and, in the fullness of 
his conviction, cried out: "Man of God! from now on shall my 
heart and my sword hearken unto thy doctrines, and may I be 
condemned (verflucht soil Ich sein) if I do otherwise than I say 
and feel! " Two days later Ludwig was found with five stabs in 
his body, murdered on his bed at the inn, and his corpse was 
denied a lodgment in consecrated ground. From various letters 
and other papers it appeared that his grandfather was XI. Fried- 
rich Theodor 6 von Steiner — the Rathsherr who died at Vienna, 
May 3, 1468 — and that his father lived in Torgau. He had six 
brothers and four sisters ; of the former nothing definite is known, 
excepting of one, a true adherent of Sickingen, 

XLII. BERNHART VON STEINER. 8 

It is known that this one was a brother of the murdered Lud- 
wig, and that Bernhart fell — 1523 — by the side of Sickingen, who 
was shot in his castle of Landstuhl when beleaguered by the 
Elector of Treves. 

XXII. GEORG TRAUGOTT STEINER. 7 

A cathedral scholastic, was for many years in the Chapter at 
Regensburg and died there, 1522. It was ascertained from his 
papers that he was the eldest son of XII. Georg von Steindorf," 
who fell in the fight at Nancy, and that his two brothers, XXIII. 
Ludwig 7 and XXIV. Herrmann, 7 lived in Aschaffenburg. Lud- 
wig was City Syndic (Stadtsyndicus) at that place and afterwards 
Burgomaster of Aschaffenburg. Herrmann was the head man- 
ager (Oberverwalter) of the possessions of Thurn and Taxis. 
From the church records it is seen that Ludwig had no male 
heirs; Herrmann, however, had two sons, of whom Carl, 8 the 
elder, died when a boy, and the younger, whose name was 

XXVI. HEINRICH, 8 

moved to Niirnburg and there became a merchant. In the 
church books of that place is found the record of his wedding

day, when he married Kunigunda Gebhardt of Anspach; he per- 
mitted his spouse, however, in a few weeks to separate from him, 
because he went over to the Evangelical confession of faith. He 
had no children, and, moreover, did not marry again. He was 
forced to take refuge in flight — 1582 — with many others, in con- 
sequence of animosities. Nothing further was heard of him, 
and his very large property was confiscated. 

The Margrave of Anspach had a physician-in-ordinary by the 
name of 

XXXVIII. MARKUS 9 EDLER VON STEINER, 

who often declared that his grandmother was the sister of the 
celebrated Agnes Bernauerin, but he was in possession of no par- 
ticular account of his family, and only knew that his father had 
died at Cologne in 15 16. When Markus von Steiner died, it was 
discovered from his papers that he had several brothers, of whom 
two lived in Regensburg; another, XXXIX. Thomas 9 in Zwei- 
briicken and XL. Reinhardt 9 Steiner in Strasburg, the last one 
being likewise a doctor, and many letters were found from him. 
We conclude from these facts that Markus was one of the sons 
of XXXIII. Albert von Steiner 8 and a grandson of XXXI. 
Martin 7 Steiner, who died at Coblentz. During the religious 
wars, and particularly the Thirty Years War, many of the Steiner 
descendants were driven from their estates, and, in those times, 
most of the records and church registers were destroyed in the 
pillaging and conflagrations of the churches and town-houses, 
whence also many genealogical tables were destroyed or made 
defective. 

At the siege of Magdeburg, under General Tilly, and the mas- 
sacre connected with it, May 10, 1631, 

XLIII. ERNST VON STEINER, 10 

a prominent burgher and Rathsassessor, came to his end in a 
terrible manner. He was suspected of being a Protestant, and 
the brutal Walloons literally quartered him, his head was stuck 
on a halberd, which was planted with a great many others before 
the town-house. The slaughter was so terrible that of 38,000

inhabitants scarcely 5000 were left alive. The wife of the mur- 
dered man saved nothing but her life, and fled, after an infant 
had been torn from her breast and stabbed before her eyes, with 
the four remaining children. Nothing further is known of the 
unhappy family. Some of the old burghers said that the grand- 
father of Ernst von Steiner had lost his life in a horrible way in 
Worms, so that it is to be presumed that this Ernst was a de- 
scendant of one of the six sons of XLI. Ludwig 8 von Steiner, 
who, during the Imperial Diet at Worms, in 1521, was assas- 
sinated. 

From some Swedish sources, as well as from extracts of chron- 
icles, which different students of history had collected, there are 
old manuscripts in the archives of Vienna which date 1640, 1642, 
1645, wherein several Steiners von Steindorf are mentioned, who 
fought in the Swedish army under Gustavus Adolphus against 
Germany, being driven by a detestable persecution to this course. 
Indeed, it is founded on history that the so-called " Blauen 
Dragoner " — an universally feared regiment of horse — was com- 
manded and led by a German named 

WINFRIED 12 VON STEINER. 

When Wallenstein, in 1628, made a fruitless attack on Stral- 
sund, the same Winfried, whom the Swedes, from this time on, 
called the " Deutschen Eisenfresser," fell in such a manner upon 
the flank of Wallenstein's army, that the soldiery, otherwise so 
victorious, were obliged to enter upon a swift retreat, and in a 
renewed attack were completely put to flight with great loss. 
The same regiment, under the command of Winfried, who bore 
the title of a Field-Colonel (Feldobersten), in an invasion of Upper 
Silesia, took a large number of prisoners. A foolhardy leader 
of a small but courageous band rushed upon Winfried, and, 
notwithstanding the smallness of his squad, the former was cut 
to pieces in a moment, and its leader, accompanied by a few, 
was forced, with desperate opposition, even to the outside of 
the camp of the enemy. When he had succeeded in getting 
within sword's reach, the leader threw the murderous weapon 
that he had drawn on the chief awav from him and threw him-

self in the arms of his parent with the exclamation: " Great God! 
my father! " It was 

FRIEDRICH VON STEINER, 13 

the son of Winfried. There live at present, both in Stockholm 
and Nykiobing, in Sweden, several families which have descended 
from this period. Winfried died in 1650 at Stockholm in very 
prosperous circumstances, and left only one son — Friedrich. 
Notwithstanding his zealous investigations as to the fate of his 
other two sons — Johann and Heinrich — who had been left in 
Germany, nothing could be learned. Winfried at the close of 
this mischievous war took a journey to Hahnheim at Amberg in 
Luzern, where he owned large estates, but the whole Steiner 
family, which had existed there, was deceased, and the mournful 
mounds which he met there were the only sad testimonies of their 
former happy past. An only daughter, who was married to a 
butcher (Metzger) named Huber, who had perished likewise in 
the desolations of the war, he found at Baireuth, and she asserted 
that both her brothers, Johann and Heinrich, were killed in the 
Saxon battles. Winfried returned to Sweden without being able 
to bring along with him satisfactory information as to his rela- 
tives. So much is only known of his own descent, that he was 
descended from XXXIII. Albert von Steiner, 8 who was his great- 
great-grandfather. Winfried's father was Johann, 11 and was estab- 
lished in Tubingen, where he died in 1604, and Winfried acted as 
merchant in Amberg after his father's death. 

Friedrich, his son, married a Swede and had several children, 
whose descendants still live in Sweden. A Steiner possesses at 
present important iron-works in that country, and has consider- 
able commercial transactions with Russia and England. 

At the end of the Thirty Years' War, whose bloody effects left 
traces for more than half a century afterwards, a general census 
was taken in Germany, and it appears from various summaries 
and registers that there then lived, 1652, in the German States, 
94 male and 109 female owners of the name of Steiner von Stein- 
dorf. 

The desolation produced by the French towards the end of the

17th century, and especially the invasions into the Rhinelands in 
1686, called forth such horrors as all wars are accompanied with. 
Among the unfortunate who lost their property and estates and 
were obliged to seek their safety in flight were to be found many 
descendants of the Steiner family; many of these fled to Switzer- 
land, and at the present time some of this family still live there. 

Furthermore, these are to be met with very numerously in 
Bavaria, Wiirtemburg, Saxony, Rhine-Prussia and in the Aus- 
trian monarchy; but the numerous researches which have been 
conducted by separate members of the Steiner family can detect 
no connected line of descent, as most of these had lost their rec- 
ords in the war periods since 1625. It appears from old docu- 
ments that many of the Steiner family living in the Rhine Palatin- 
ate, as well as in Austria and Steiermark, at the end of the last 
century or the beginning of this, emigrated to America. 

The separate notices which have been collected together in this 
narrative are partly the result of labor and investigations into 
extracts from old documents and family papers, into verbal copies 
of chronicles where descendants of the Steiner family are named. 
They relate to persons who have been prominent, although it is 
further known that many unfortunate members of the Steiner 
family, in consequence of misfortune, have been forced to occupy 
themselves with agriculture and have lived in the darkness of 
obscurity. 1 

Between the years 1680 and 1685 there lived a large number 
of the Steiner family scattered about in the Rhine Palatinate, 
at Worms, in the country along the Neckar and in Hesse. But 
when the horrible devastations of the French threw the firebrand 
of bloody war among the peaceful provinces, when the castle of 
Heidelberg was blown into the air, Worms and Speyer burnt, 
and murder, robbery and pillage drove thousands of families 
away, then the Steiner family also was so scattered that any 
further connected account of it cannot be given. 

Many Germans from the different crown-lands of the mon- 
archy wandered into Austria under the Empress Maria Theresa,

Jacob Steiner of Philadelphia about 1855.

as well as under the government of Joseph II., and also from 
Wiirtemburg to Hungary, where several families yet live having 
the name of Steiner. From partial notices which have been 
handed down from children to children, as well as from genea- 
logical tables found in a Bible which had been owned for over 
200 years by a Steiner family, it is to be concluded that most of 
the owners of this name were descendants of Rathsherr Friedrich 
Theodor von Steiner, who died in Vienna, 1468. But the most 
of these had emigrated from necessity and during the war periods, 
and under no prosperous circumstances, partly country people 
or mechanics, who were securing for themselves a new asylum 
by their activity and diligence.

EARLY STEINER SETTLERS IN AMERICA WHO MAY 
HAVE BEEN RELATED TO JACOB STEINER. 

Christian Steiner 1 was naturalized October 14, 1729. He 
bought land in Strasburg Township, Lancaster County, Pennsyl- 
vania, and built a mill there, which, in 1730, was one of three in 
the county. He also kept a house of entertainment and sold 
rum "by the small." He came to this country 2 as early as 1720. 

In his will 3 he is described as of Lampeter Township, yeoman. 
He gave his son Christian his mills and divided his land at 
" Conawagga," York County, equally among all his children. 
Either the father or son of the name Christian 4 sold land in 1750 
and 1763. He mentions sons Jacob, John and Christian in his 
will, dated September 30, 1758. 

Abraham Steiner 5 settled in Lancaster County and had land 
granted him on October 7, 1735, and in Lebanon Township 
received a grant of other land on December 12, 1739. His wife 

was Mary . She gave bond as administratrix 7 of his estate 

in 1 741, and put in a final account on June 10, 1743. He was 
never naturalized. 8 His wife could not write. His son Abraham 

married Salome and removed to Bethlehem, Northampton 

County. 9 He sold land in Lancaster County in 1762. Both he

In 1755, John Stoner, miller, sells land in Lancaster County to 
John Newcomer. 

In 1756, John Stoner, of " Connestogoe," having died, his 
children execute a deed of partition of the father's land. Their 
names were Abram (described as yeoman), Christian, Catharine 
and John. 

Abraham Steiner 1 bought 63 acres of land on Conestoga 
Manor, Lancaster County, on May 3, 1740, and 200 acres in 1762. 
In the same place Christian Steiner bought 244 acres in 1761.

son of the same name, who was described as his heir in 1771, 
and was then unmarried. 4 David and Abraham, with their 
wives, were alive 5 in 1772. John Sr. sold land called Egypt on 
the north side of Antietam Creek near Steiner's Mills as early 
as March 18, 1750. 6

PART m. 

JACOB STEINER, OF FREDERICK COUNTY, MARYLAND, 
AND HIS DESCENDANTS. 

i. Jacob Stoner, or Steiner, was born , 1713, and died 174S, 

according to the dates on a tombstone in the old German Reformed 
graveyard in Frederick, which stone is probably that of our ancestor. 
It is quite probable that he was the Jacob Steiner who arrived at Phila- 
delphia in the vessel Pennsylvania, Merchant, from Rotterdam on Sept. 
11, 1731 (Rupp's List, p. 20). He had settled in Frederick County before 
1736. On June 11 of that year Benjamin Tasker covenanted to convey 
a tract of land known as Tasker's Chance, lying on the Monocacy, to 
Abraham Miller, Daniel France, John George Lay, Joseph Smith, Peter 
Laney and Jacob Stoner for the sum of two thousand pounds. They 
were unable to raise the money and the sale fell through. In 1744 
Daniel Dulany bought Tasker's Chance, probably as agent and attorney 
for the actual settlers. On July 28, 1746, Dulany transferred to the 
settlers most of the tract, on which he had laid out the town of Frederick. 
Jacob Stoner received the following tracts: "The Barrens," 103 acres 
for 25 pounds, beginning 160 perches from the Monocacy; " Indian 
Field," 202 acres for 15 pounds; "Mill Pond," 292 acres, on the Tus- 
carora Creek where it empties into the Monocacy, where Jacob Stoner's 
house and mill were; and " Bear's Den," or "Durburg," on the Tus- 
carora below " Mill Pond," 172J/2 acres, 25 pounds. The last two tracts 
adjoined the lands of Stephen Ramsburg and Abraham Miller. In 1742 
he signed a petition to have Prince George parish divided and a new one 
established. He was evidently a man of some means and prominence 
in the community. He left no will and his estate was never adminis- 
tered upon (Land Records J, 1193, W. R. 17, 234, L. 1). He married 

on . Jacob Steiner's land was divided in 1767. If we assume 

this was done at the attaining majority of his youngest son, Benedict, 
which is quite probable, we shall have Benedict as born in 1746.

2. Captain John Stoner, 2 or Steiner, married Catharine Elizabeth 

Ramsburg , 175 — . She was born June 29, 1739, and died Jan. 

29, 1792. 

He inherited from his father the Mill Pond estate and carried on the 
business of a miller, while conducting farming operations at the same 
time. He was very successful and possessed a large fortune for those 
days. 

Family tradition has reported that he was a soldier in the French and 
Indian war. Col. F. B. Steiner states that in 1838 he was told by an old 
Revolutionary soldier, then ninety-six years of age, that Capt. Stoner 
served in Braddock's campaign and that he was in the quartermaster's 
department of the Continental Army during the Revolution. He was 
a prominent citizen, being captain of militia in 1775. He served as a 
member of the Committee of Observation for the Middle District of 
Frederick County. 

On November 2, 1779, he was one of the bondsmen of the sheriff of 
the county. 

He probably was somewhat older than his brothers, and is said to 
have brought up them, as well as the only son of his brother Henry. 

He first appears on the land records of Frederick County on August 
19, 1767, when he divides his father's land, and is described as " miller, 
son and heir of Jacob Stoner " (L. 1). He also appears on the same 
day in connection with his brothers Benedict (K. 1435) and Henry (L. 2). 
His chief property, Mill Pond, was situated on Tuscarora Creek, and 
his mill was probably situated where Worman's Mill now stands, about 

miles north of Fredericktown on the road. Thence he rode 

into town, transacted business, and attended the German Reformed 
Church, of which the most of the family have been members. 

On October 13, 1770, he bought Knave's Disappointment, situated in 
Georgetown, now in the District of Columbia (N. 401). Three years 
later, he and his neighbor and father-in-law, Stephen Ramsburg, agreed 
that over Ramsburg's land, known as Mortality, John Stoner might 
continue to carry his mill-race and water-course, carrying water from the 
Tuscarora Creek to his mill. He paid £10 currency for this privilege, 
and agreed to provide flood-gates and to keep the race in repair to pre- 
vent any injury to Ramsburg's land. Both parties bind themselves to 
keep the contract under penalty of £100. The whole proceeding is evi- 
dently a friendly one to prevent possible future " controversies and dis- 
putes " (V. 2). With Ramsburg and others, he joins in a petition on 
November 22, 1781, to have their bounds perpetuated (W. R. 2, 1083), 
and again five years later he petitions for the same thing (W. R. 6, 407). 

In 1787, Capt. Stoner considerably enlarged his estate by buying por- 
tions of the confiscated property of Dulany (W. R. 7; 551, 650). He 
owned now land down to the Monocacy, and indeed on both sides of 
the stream. Between the banks of the Monocacy he conducted a ferry, 



26 THE GENEALOGY OF THE STEINER FAMILY. 

adding this to his other occupations. Three years later he bought still 
more of the Dulany estate (W. R. 9, 258). He was now a large land- 
owner; but he was getting old, and, in 1792, the loneliness of his advanc- 
ing years was increased by his wife's death. 

On Dec. 3, 1792, nearly a year after his wife's death, he began to dis- 
pose of his lands (W. R. II, 232), and on May 4, 1795, he bought a lot 
on Second Street in Fredericktown (W. R. 13, 239), possibly moving 
there for his last years. A month later he made his last purchase of 
land (W. R. 13, 384), buying " Caspar's Inheritance." He sold land 
near the Mill Pond estate on June 16, 1796 (W. R. 14, 304). On Feb. 
26, 1798, he sold at auction much of his farm equipment, disposing of 
two good mares, a number of sheep, steers and hogs, a negro boy, a 
good wagon and gears, an excellent house clock, and a variety of farm- 
ing utensils (Bartgis's Federal Gazette). During the summer of 1798 his 
strength was gradually failing. On Aug. 23 he made his will. It is 
a rather long one, and disposes of personal property found by the exe- 
cutors to amount to £6999 17s 9d, a sum, roughly speaking, equal to 
$20,000, a very large estate for that time and place. The will is one that 
exhibits its maker in a favorable light. While stating he is of sound 
and disposing mind, he interjects, " Praised be God for it." He was a 
slaveholder, as most men of means then were; but was evidently a merci- 
ful master, for he directs all his " children to contribute equally towards 
maintaining and supporting my old negro woman, named Fan, during 
her life, as she is old and infirm and, at present, incapable of supporting 
herself." His negro man, Frank, about twenty-five years old. he gives 
to his son Henry, who has already been using his services; but, when 
Frank arrives at the age of thirty-two, " he shall be free and emancipated 
from slavery." A negro girl, Sally, aged eleven, is given to his daughter, 
Catharine Derr, and a negro boy, Bill, aged five, to his son Stephen. 

The personal estate is directed to be sold by the executors, who were 
his sons Henry and Stephen. They were also to sell part of the land 
bought from the Dulany estate, to pay any debts he might have. The 
property was to be divided equally among his seven surviving children. 
The five children of his eldest son John, who had recently died, were to 
receive the share of their father, less i6i8, which had been advanced 
their father during his life. Their property was to be turned over to 
them as they reached the age of twenty-one. In the distribution of the 
estate it was found that each of the surviving children received £833 5s 7d, 
and each of the five children of John £43 is i^4d currency. 

A few days before making the will, he transferred his town house to his 
son Stephen (W. R. 17, 201), and a week after it, on Aug. 29, 1798, he 
sold for £5247, to William Potts, the Mill Pond estate, the rights over 
Ramsburg's land, the ferry, with an acre of ground across the Monocacy, 
where it landed, and a portion of the land confiscated by the State from 
Dulany. It will be thus seen that John Stoner had turned most of his

27 



property into personalty. He lived only a few days after this last sale, 
and was dead before September 10, when his executors brought the will 
into the Orphans' Court. 

The estate was not settled until June 10, 1802. We find the personal 
property had been sold at auction for £500 4s id. John Buckias received 
£2 12s 6d for " crying the sale," and Philip Rohr £1 17s 6d for acting ,is 
clerk at the sale. Dr. John Tyler had been paid £5 for attendance on 
Capt. Stoner, and Dr. Lewis Weltzheimer 6s 8d for drugs and medicines. 
Conrad Doll made the coffin for the burial for £4 10s (high price as com- 
pared with others), George Littlejohn received £1 for shaving Capt. 
Stoner after death, and Adam Strickstuck dug his grave for 15s. Capt. 
John Stoner was an ancestor of whom we may well be proud; a faithful, 
conscientious, honored, Christian citizen. 

Captain Stephen Ramsburg, the father-in-law of John Stoner, on July 

28, 1746, bought " Mortality," 473 acres, part of Tasker's Chance, from 
Daniel Dulany, for 15 pounds. He bought on Oct. 1, 1753, from 
Daniel Dulany the estate of Dearbought, containing 307^4 acres. He 
paid £100 for it (Frederick Co. Land Records, E. 278). On July 3, 1755. 
he sold the property to Sebastian Derr, whose son John married a 
daughter of Capt. John Stoner (E. 764). On Aug. 25, 1758, he bought 
a tract of 100 acres, being part of Dulany's Lott (F. 566), and on Nov. 

29, 1758, he bought 50 acres more of Dulany's Lott (F. 608). On May 
11, 1761, he sold to Jacob Crist 190 acres of land on Ruess's (Reese's) 
Branch, which runs into the Monocacy (G. 6). He sold lots 28 and 29 
in Fredericktown on July 14, 1761 (G. 106). These lots he bought from 
Daniel Dulany, and had his title confirmed to them by Dulany's exe- 
cutor on May 14 and June 23, 1762 (H. 51, 52, 82; G. 502). 

He was a farmer and miller, and on Oct. I, 1762, made an agreement 
with his neighbor William Durm with regard to a proposed mill-dam, 
which would cause the overflow of some of Durm's land. In return for 
the damage he agreed to pay £45 (H. 135). Shortly afterwards he served 
as executor for his friend Jacob Storm (J. 1 184) and bought 114 acres 
of land, being the Resurvey on Nutt Spring (J. 1245). On Aug. 16, 
1768, he sold the Resurvey on Stoney Hill and Shoemaker's Choice, 
comprising in acres (L. 398). On April 6, 1770, he sold his eldest son, 
John Ramsburg, for £250, the part of Dulany's Lott which he owned 
(L. 628). The second son, Jacob, received the remainder of his father's 
property in the Resurvey on Stoney Hill and Shoemaker's Choice on 
July 4, 1770 (N. 231). Fourteen years later, on Dec. 30, 1784 (W. R. 5, 
271), he transferred part of Tasker's Chance, known as Mortality, com- 
prising 62 l / 2 acres, to his third son, Elias Ramsburg. 

His wife was Catharine Brunner, whom he must have married soon 
after 1730, who was alive in 1770, but dead before 1784. Their children 
were: John; Catharine Elizabeth, who married Captain John Stoner; 
Jacob; Elias; Anna Margaret, who married Christopher Myers, and was 



28 THE GENEALOGY OF THE STEINER FAMILY. 

great-grandmother of Lewis H. Steiner; Henry; and Christian. He was 
for many years an elder of the Evangelical Reformed Church of Fred- 
erick, and as such bought land for the church (G. 368, J. 362, M. 43). 
In 1768, with the other elders, he made an agreement with Rev. Bennet 
Allen, Rector of All Saints parish, " for the more general comfort and 
edification of that part of the parishioners who are Germans." For this 
and other good causes and considerations and the sum of two shillings, 
Allen grants to the elders, while he shall be incumbent of All Saints, 
£25 current money, yearly, provided they apply it to the payment of a 
" minister that is received of and approved " by the Reformed Calvinists. 

On Jan. 25, 1785, he manumitted ( W. R. 5, 290) his negro slave Nan, 
aged about 40; John Stoner was witness to the deed. To the same 
woman, who took care of him during the last years of his life, he willed 
" the bed and bedding that she now uses at my house," and for " her 
past services and attention " he bequeathed her an annuity of £6 current 
money. Out of his personal estate £100 were to be reserved during her 
life for the payment of this annuity. His will was dated April 19, 1788, 
and describes him as " far advanced in years." He died on March 7, 
1789, and on March 21 the will was presented for probate. He signed 
his name to it in German script. He left his son John, whom he made 
executor, a tract of 27 acres in Washington County, known as Adventure, 
and a bond of £43 3s id due from Capt. John Stoner. He also gave him 
" my two negroe boys, named Jack and Bill, untill they arrive at the 
age of 26 years, at which ages respectively, I have by deed duly executed, 
acknowledged, and to be recorded, manumitted and set them free, the 
said devise and bequest of the negroes to John to be on the express con- 
dition that he, his executors or administrators, do and shall, before their 
arrival at the ages at which they are manumitted by deed as aforesaid, 
instruct or cause the said negroe boys to be instructed and taught some 
good trade, whereby they may be at those ages the better enabled to 
support themselves." 

Christian, the youngest son, received the family bible and two tracts 
of land in Frederick County: one, Chestnut Hill, of 50 acres; and the 
other, Mortality, of 200 acres. In return for these he is to pay £150 to 
Catharine Stoner. She also to have the " use and labour of a negroe 
woman named Sarah, now 18 years old, untill the said negro shall arrive 
at the age of 24 years, at which period her manumission, by deed bearing 
equal date herewith," is to take place. Stephen Ramsburg was born 
Oct. 11, 1711, and died March 7, 1789. The residue of the personal estate 
is to be divided equally among the children. The final account of the 
executor was rendered Aug. 10, 1792. He stated the personal estate 
amounted to £434 10s 8d. He charged the estate, among other items, 
with the following: Coffin and sundries for the funeral, £7 3d; Lawrence 
Brengle, clerk of the vendue, £1 10s; Jacob Miller, crier at vendue, 15s; 
nine gallons rum for vendue, £1 13s 9d.

Mrs. Ramsburg was a daughter of Joseph Brunner, who came from 

Schiefferstadt in Germany on the in , 1729. With him 

came his son-in-law Christian Getzendanner, who married Anna Barbara 
Brunner (Rupp, 30,000 Names, p. 16). Joseph Brunner settled on a tract 
of land of about 1000 acres, immediately west of the present town of 
Frederick. This tract he divided into four farms: for his four sons, 
Jacob, John, Elias, and Henry, so that each farm should cross Carroll 
Creek and afford access to that stream for watering the cattle. On Jan. 
T 7, *753, he transferred to his third son Elias the homestead " Shever- 
stadt," which he had purchased from Dulany on July 28, 1746, and on 
which the present house was probably already built. He probably died 
soon thereafter (Frederick Co. Land Records E., p. 68, 104).

3. Henry Steiner 2 married Elizabeth Link on , 177 — . He was 

brought up by his elder brother John, according to family tradition. On 
Aug. 19, 1767, John transferred to him Stoner's Chance, a tract of land 
on the Tuscarora (L. 2). A part, at least, of this land he sold to Balzer 
Getzendanner on Apr. 5, 1770, when he was still unmarried. He was a 
farmer. His brother John administered his estate, which amounted to 
£252 19s 3Hd, of which personal property was worth £212 6s 5^d, and 
debts due the estate £40 12s iod. From there being no distribution of 
the estate recorded, it is possible that his wife and daughter were already 
dead.

at that time, a part of the possessions of Hesse Darmstadt. From that 
early home in the Vosges of the Palatinate, he emigrated to America 
with his brother Philip, who settled in Shepherdstown, W. Va. On 
May 5, 1796, Lewis Weltzheimer opened the first apothecary's store in 
Fredericktown. His advertisement in Bartgis's Federal Gazette reads 
as follows: "Fresh Drugs and Medicines. Lewis Weltzheimer Informs 
the public in general and his friends in particular that he has just opened 
a New Medicinal Store next door to Mr. Francis Kleinerd's, at the sign 
of the Golden Mortar in Fredericktown, near the gaol, where he intends 
to sell and will be constantly supplied with a general assortment of 
genuine Drugs and Medicines, together with all sorts of Painter's Col- 
ours and Paints." Dr. Weltzheimer was an educated man. At the bap- 
tism of his daughter Rebecca, the sponsors were John Jacob Rohr and 
his wife Catharine. There was a second daughter, Caroline, born July 
16, 1807, who married Adam Wolfe. Lewis Weltzheimer died Dec. 10, 

1834. 

Christian Steiner was one of a large family and early had to start in 
business for himself. He was for some time clerk in a store at Mechan- 
icstown (now Thurmont). Later he removed to Frederick, married, 

and in , 1824, at the age of twenty-seven, opened a general 

store on Market Street, just above Fourth Street. He was a uniformly 
successful merchant, respected by all men for his probity and upright- 
ness of character. His rule of life may well be summed up in a sentence 
from a letter to his son, on May 10, 1854: " When I commenced the 
world, I resolved (as I was poor and success depended upon an upright 
course) that I never would do an unworthy act knowingly." Having 
amassed a modest competence, he sold out his business to Joshua Doub 
and Joseph G. Miller for $6114 on Sept. 21, 1842. He then retired from 
active business and spent his time in caring for his property and in 
the conduct of various institutions in which he was interested. He was 
long a director in the Fredericktown Savings Institution, and was one of 
the founders and first trustees of the Frederick Female Seminary. He 
was a consistent member of the Evangelical Reformed Church of Fred- 
erick, in which he was confirmed in 1821 and in whose service he several

times held the office of elder. In politics he was an ardent Whig. His 
kindness and thoughtfulness towards his wife, who was an invalid during 
the latter years of her life, are worthy of special mention.

graduating from the latter June, 1837, he preached near Trenton, N. J., 
as a licentiate for a year. In 1838 he was ordained by Susquehanna 
Classis of the Reformed Church and placed in charge of three congre- 
gations in Northumberland Co., Penn. He preached there until 1841. 
From then to 1843 he had no charge. In 1844 he removed to Ohio 
and became pastor of seven congregations at and near Lancaster in that 
State. In 1846 he removed to the Fairfield charge, composed of four 
congregations, in the Miami classis, and in 1852 to Union charge of 
four congregations in the same classis, living in Springfield, Ohio. In 
1856 he became pastor of the Congregational Church at Peoria, 111., in 
the Illinois Central Association. In 1858 he returned to Maryland and 
lived at Walkersville, Frederick County, in charge of the Glade Church. 
This charge he retained until 1867, when he accepted a call to the Taney- 
town charge in Carroll County, Md. In 1872 he returned to Ohio and, 
settling at Ashland, served the Shenandoah charge of five congregations 
in the Tuscarawas classis. This church he left in 1875 to become pastor 
of the St. Paul's charge of three congregations in the Miami classis in 
Champaign Co., Ohio. In 1877 he removed to Greenville, Ohio, and 
had charge of the New Madison Church. Two years later he settled 
without charge on a farm two miles from Millerstown, Champaign Co., 
Ohio. In 1882 he returned to the ministry and took the Bunker Hill 
charge of three congregations in Williams Co., Ohio, residing at Pulaski. 
In 1885 he again retired from active service and spent his remaining 
years on his farm near Millerstown. He was an active and zealous man, 
positive and decided in his views, and a fluent and forceful speaker, 
rarely using notes. He favored emotional religion, had a strong and 
vivid imagination, was a clear thinker, a logical reasoner and a ready 
debater, being well versed in parliamentary law. He told his friend 
Rev. I. H. Reiter: " If you ever write my biography say Jesse Steiner 
was a radical." The friend adds: " He was a man of strong intellectual 
endowments, had a penetrating mind, was quick of perception and cred- 
itably educated . . . and well versed in the Holy Scriptures and the 
general doctrines of the church."

erick City. In early life he became a member of the Evangelical Re- 
formed Church of Frederick, where he was engaged as teacher, manager, 
and superintendent of the Sunday school for more than sixty years, and 
very frequently was elected by the congregation as deacon and elder. 
He was often delegate to classis and synods of that denomination and 
was elected vice-president of the Synod of the Potomac at its session 
held at Carlisle, Pennsylvania, in 1890. When the rebellion of the South- 
ern States occurred, he volunteered and entered the service as the major 
of the 1st Regiment Potomac Home Brigade Volunteers; was promoted 
to the lieutenant-colonelcy, and was honorably discharged, upon resigna- 
tion, June, 1863, just before the enemy crossed the Potomac River into 
Maryland. He refused to receive his discharge until the enemy was 
driven from the State, volunteered and with his regiment fought through 
the battle of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, where the regiment was attached 
to 12th (Slocum's) Corps and Lockwood's Maryland Brigade. The his- 
tory of the war records the service of the brigade at several most im- 
portant points during the engagements of the battle. After the enemy 
was defeated and driven into Virginia, he accepted his discharge and 
returned to his family in Frederick. For this volunteer service, the 
Senate of the United States breveted him to a full colonelcy and brevet 
brigadier-general U. S. volunteers. At the fall election of 1863, he was 
elected sheriff of Frederick County, which office he filled during its term 
of two years. At the election of 1866, he was elected as one of the dele- 
gates from Frederick County to General Assembly of Maryland, and 
there served on several important committees, among which was the 
committee on claims and corporations. Upon his return from Annapolis, 
after serving in the House of Delegates, he resumed the manufacture of 
brick, later retiring from that business he returned to his former trade, 
boot and shoe making. In July, 1882, he received from Col. E. H. Web- 
ster, collector of customs for the port of Baltimore, an appointment of 
day inspector of customs, and as such served until 1888, mainly as chief 
of debenture department. After Mr. Cleveland reached the presidency 
of the United States, he was retired to make place for a democrat. 
Shortly after his return home, Dr. George Diehl purchased the " Ex- 
aminer " printing office and selected him as his office editor, in which 
capacity he served until advancing age forced him to retire to private 
life. General Steiner was connected with a number of organizations. 
For more than fifty years he was a member of the Junior Steam Engine 
Company No. 1 of Frederick, and served as a director and vice-president 
in the company. He was connected with Columbia Lodge, F. and A. 
M., Odd Fellows, Improved Order of Red Men, Knights of Pythias, 
and for many years was a director in the Young Men's Bible Society of 
Frederick County. By his zeal and willing service he usually became 
prominent in the organizations to which he was attached.

THE GENEALOGY OF THE STEINER FAMILY. 



Lewis H. Steiner was fitted for college at the Frederick Academy, 
whence he entered the Sophomore class of Marshall College, at which 
institution he was graduated in 1846. During his college course he was 
much influenced by his contact with such professors as J. W. Nevin, 
D. D., Philip Schaff, D. D., and Traill Green, M. D. He then pursued 
the study of medicine in the office of a Frederick physician and at the 
Medical Department of the University of Pennsylvania, where he received 
the degree of M. D. in 1849. In the same year Marshall College gave 
him the degree of A. M. in course. He received the same degree (honoris 
causa) from the College of St. James in 1854 and from Yale College in 
1869. 

He began the practice of medicine in Frederick, but in 1852 removed 
to Baltimore to assist Dr. John R. W. Dunbar in the conduct of a 
private medical institute. He continued in that position until 1855. His 
attention was early directed to natural science, particularly to botany 
and chemistry, and he soon gave up the active practice of medicine to 
devote his time to teaching these sciences. He was one of the earliest 
physiological chemists in the country, and his monograph on strychnia 
is well known. From 1853 to 1856 he was professor of chemistry and 
natural history at the Columbian University, as well as professor of 
chemistry and pharmacy and dean of the National Medical College. He 
was lecturer on chemistry and physics at the College of St. James from 
1854 to 1859. In 1855 and 1856 he was Swann lecturer on applied chem- 
istry in the Maryland Institute, and in the latter year was one of those 
who reorganized the Maryland College of Pharmacy, in which institution 
he served as professor of chemistry until 1861. During this period he 
also lectured on chemistry and botany in many private schools for girls 
in and near Baltimore. In particular, he was one of the corporators of 
and professors in the Mt. Washington Female College. He was Libra- 
rian of the Maryland Historical Society from 1856 to 1861. At the out- 
break of the Civil War Dr. Steiner returned to Frederick and entered 
the U. S. Sanitary Commission as one of its inspectors. In 1863 he 
was promoted to the position of Chief Inspector for the Army of the 
Potomac and placed in full charge of the field relief work. In recogni- 
tion of his valuable services in the war, the New York Commandery of 
the Military Order of the Loyal Legion of the United States elected 
him a companion of the third class in 1868. 

In 1865 he was chosen President of the School Board of Frederick 
County, and acting as such until 1868, he thoroughly organized the 
school system of that county. In 1871 he was elected, on the Republican 
ticket, as the member from Frederick County of the State Senate, in 
which body he was for a session the only representative of his party. 
He was re-elected in 1875 and 1879, but defeated in 1883. While in that 
body he was usually a member of the committee on rules, on engrossed 
bills, and other important committees. In- 1876 he was a member of the

National Republican Convention, which nominated Gen. R. B. Hayes to 
the presidency. From 1873 until 1884, he was political editor of the Fred- 
erick Examiner. 

In November, 1884, he was chosen Librarian of the Enoch Pratt Free 
Library of Baltimore City. He organized the library, which was opened 
at the beginning of 1886, with 20,000 volumes and a central and four 
branch libraries. A fifth branch library was opened in 1888, and the 
books owned by the library were over 100,000 at Dr. Steiner's death in 
1892. Under Dr. Steiner's administration, the library circulated about 
450,000 books annually among the people of Baltimore. 

In 1853 he was chosen a Fellow of the Medical and Chirurgical Faculty 
of Maryland; in 1853 Member and in 1874 Fellow of the American Asso- 
ciation for the Advancement of Science; in 1852, Member of the Amer- 
ican Medical Association; in 1855, Correspondent of the Philadelphia 
Academy of Natural Science; in 1869, Corresponding Member of the 
Maryland Academy of Sciences; in 1872, Member and in 1876 Vice-Presi- 
dent of the American Public Health Association; in 1876, Corresponding 
Member of the New Haven Colony Historical Society; in 1878, Trustee 
of the Hampton Normal and Agricultural Institute; in 1891, Vice-Presi- 
dent of the American Library Association; in 1856, he was made an 
honorary member of the Alpha of New York of the * B K Fraternity; 
in 1853, a member of the Maryland Historical Society; in 1876, a mem- 
ber of the International Medical Congress in Philadelphia; and in 1881, 
Corresponding Member of the New England Historic Genealogical So- 
ciety. In 1876 he was one of the founders of the American Academy 
of Medicine, of which he was vice-president in 1876 and 1877 and presi- 
dent in 1878. In 1886 he was one of the original members of the 
Society for the History of the Germans in Maryland. He was assistant 
editor of the American Medical Monthly from 1858 to 1861. 

He received the degree of LL. D. from Delaware College in 1884, and 
that of Litt. D. in 1887 from Franklin and Marshall, at which time he 
delivered the oration at the celebration of the centennial of the founding 
of the college. 

His first publication was an address delivered in 1851 before the 
Goethean Literary Society of Marshall College, of which he was a mem- 
ber. He translated Wills' " Chemical Analysis " with Dr. D. Breed in 
1854. and between 1865 and 1880 translated nearly a dozen works of 
German fiction for the Reformed Church Publication House. He con- 
tributed numerous monographs and reviews to medical and scientific 
journals, and published many addresses, and scientific and other reports. 

In 1876 he edited the History of Guilford, Connecticut, left in manu- 
script by his father-in-law, the Hon. R. D. Smyth, and in 1889 he acted as 
one of the Committee of Arrangements for the Quarto Millennial Cele- 
bration of the settlement of that town. 

He was a prominent member of the Reformed Church in the United

States, and served several times as elder in the Evangelical Reformed 
Church at Frederick and as treasurer of the Potomac Synod. In 1863 
he was one of the secretaries of the Tercentenary Celebration of the 
Heidelberg Catechism; in 1866, a member of the committee to prepare 
an " Order of Worship " for the church; in 1874, a member of a committee 
to prepare a " Hymn Book"; from 1878 to 1883, a member of the Peace 
Commission, and a member of a committee to prepare a " Directory of 
Worship" in 1883. Together with Prof. Henry Schwing, he prepared 
two hymn books: " Cantate Domino " in 1859 and " Tunes for Worship " 
in 1884.
