Tombstone Tuesday – My German Ancestry

My 6th great-grandfather lived in Green County, Tennessee. Henricus Steinseifer was born in Eisenfeld, Westfaln, Germany on July 27, 1739 and immigrated to Philadelphia in 1749 with his family. Heinricus, aka Henry Stonecypher, married Catherine Call in Culpepper, Virginia in 1760. Catherine died in 1778 in Davie, South Carolina. Henry died in Green County, Tennessee in 1832 at 93 years of age.

Henry and Catherine’s son, Solomon Stonecipher, was born in Surrey, North Carolina in 1772. He married Elizabeth Hawkins Nov. 18, 1796 in Green County, Tennessee. Solomon died in Green County, Tennessee on Sept. 2, 1844. Elizabeth died in Green County, Tennessee in 1824.

Absolom Stoncifer, Solomon’s brother, was born in 1769 and married Sarah Humbert. Absolom died in 1861 in Green County, Tennessee at the age of 92. Sarah died in Green County, Tennessee on Jan. 11, 1860 at the age of 85.

There is a story about Absolom Stoncifer in my blog, My Crockett Connections.
