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