Seeking information from anyone who can connect to my great-grandfather William Henry Stiner. Supposedly, he and two brothers came from Germany or Holland to PA and floated down the Ohio River to New Orleans on a raft. He lost track of both brothers; one returned to PA or Germany and was never heard from again. Does this story sound familiar to anyone? He is on the 1860 Lawrence County, AR census at age 32 as a farm laborer in the household of another family. He was in the Civil War, wounded, captured and paroled. He went back to Lawrence County, AR, and married Clarissa Angaline Brown Lingo, the widow of a fellow soldier who was wounded with him and later died. He and Clarissa moved to Mt. Home, AR. William Henry Stiner was born in 1828 and died in 1900 in Gamaliel, AR.
