For what it's worth I found this in the book
"Catholic Trails West" - Vol 2 page 634
by Edmund Adams and Barbara Brady O'Keefe.
"The Prince would tell the story of how, on his first ride over the mountains to the west, toward Presbyterian Chambersburg, he inquired of a horseman going in the opposite direction about the location of Michael Stillinger's farmhouse."
This was the Russian Prince Gallitzin, a Catholic priest riding his circut from Taneytown, MD and Conewago, PA after 1795 and maybe before 1799. He was warned that "this Stillinger is a Papist", so either Michael was a friend or a place to stop over or both. Nothing more is said.
