    • Translated from German Obituaries by A. Lloyd Swartzendruber (1962)

      STALTER -- June 8, 1998 in Livingstone Co., Illinois from palsey, JACOB STALTER at the age of 74 years, 9 months, and 20 days. The deceased was born in Bavaria (Germany)in 1823. In 1849, April 30, he married Barbara Birky. In this marriage union he lived for 35 years. Six sons and six daughters were born to this union. Three sons and one daughter preceded him in death. He was laid to rest on June 10, in a funeral of large attendance. In the house of mourning Christian Zimmerman spoke and in V.H. (probably Versammlungs Hause,which could be an assembly house or church) Stephen Stähly, Chr. Zimmerman, and John P. Schmitt from Isiah 38:1-3. Joseph Kinsinger then spoke from I Thess. 4:13. The deceased was a member of the Amish church and stood in high esteem. Besides his eight children, he left 50 grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren, one brother and two sisters.

      "He has now arrived.
      We journey there also.
      He has now been received.
      Death to him was a victory"

      (He left”one brother and two sisters” probably is an error. It should read “two brothers and one sister.”)
      Brothers: Chris and Henry
      Sister: Mrs. Joe Good
      All died in Hopedale, Illinois and buried in Hopedale Cemetery.
      -------
      Jacod died in the home of his daughter and son-in-law, Mrs. Joseph (Mary) Stalter. His wife Barbara(Birky)Stalter died March 31, 1885 at daughter Fanny Sutter's home in Hopedale, Illinois. [3, 9, 10]
