Husband related. His ancestor was Andreas Stalder who had son Caspar Stalder married to Mary Lydia Coates who had daughter Ollie Olive Stalder married to Noah Somers who had daughter Navada Somers married to Quentin Quinn who had my husband's father Bill Quinn.

Our group of Stalders lived in Chauncey, Ohio Dover township, until about 1920.

Frederick is in the 1850 Athens county census under the name of Fritz Stalder in Ames township on page 5, household 1773-1792

Frederick Stalder (born 1809) and Marianna Lichtie, were married June 23, 1830 and built their cabin on the banks of a branch of Federal Creek, now called "Dutch Creek" after a colony of dutchmen who settled in its valley. The old log house was only recently destroyed, though a new residence was erected many years ago. That house was burned and yet another house built, which is now the house of one Loeffler who owns the farm. Frederick and Marianna had six children, two died and are buried in Bethel Cemetery, which is located on the Stalder farm and which, together with the site of Bethel Church, was donated for the purpose by Grandmother. Her home was the home of all the preachers who came that way, and she was a very stalwart pillar of the little church. Their surviving children were Jacob, John, Laura, and Frederick. Grandfather Frederick died suddenly of a apoplectic stroke and left grandmother with a family of four to raise and a farm to till --a stupendous undertaking for a lone woman, but as usual Marianna did not falter. She carried steadfastly on through the hardships with her treasured dutch bible and hymnbook to sustain her.

OU Stalder Family History

Biography of Jacob E. Stalder, born 12-7-1832 buried in Graceland Cemetery Meade Kansas, died 8-7-1912 , Was born in the Swiss Colony neighborhood near Athens, Ohio and was one of three sons and a daughter of Frederick and Mary Stalder. Frederick with three brothers and one sister (the wife of Baron De Steiger, a French Swiss) the Stalder family were of German Swiss Stock and lived near Bern Switzerland came with the first colony in 1806; the second colony came in 1810 and Mary the wife to be Frederick's also some more sisters and his parents came with the second adjoining colony. The first small brick church was on the De Steiger farm and had one acre cemetery in the north east corner. Many of the Stalder and DeSteiuger relatives are buried there. Just a short distance (3 miles) up the broad valley was located the Frederick and Mary Stalder farm. They gave a five acre tract for the Bethel Church and Cemetery out of the south-west corner of their farm. They and Jacob E. Stalder's first wife are buried together as the three headstones show. She was the mother of one son and two daughter, who were all older and of course just half brother and sisters of John J., John J's mother was Elizabeth Skiles, grew up in the colony too, but was much younger than Jacob E. She went as a cook and housemaid (to be gone just the one year) with other families she knew who made the Klondike Gold Run into Alaska during 1894.
Jacob Edward Stalder with 2nd wife Elizabeth Skiles and one year old son John born in 1868 and 3 children by first marriage drove wagon train to La Plota Missouri in 1869. Then in 1886 drove to Meade County Kansas. John married Ada Davanport in Meade County Kansas in 1887.
Written by Fess Stalder of Harper Kansas.

I researched the Stalders for my husband to become a member of First Families of Athens county through his Coates/Fierce line. James M. Coates and his wife were the parents of Mary Lydia Coates married to Caspar Stalder, James was the son of Arthur Coates/Coats the first ferry operator of Athens and owned the land and farm that the OU Ridges offices are on and also the the Dairy Barn still exists today. James sold his farm to Athens for a school.

Stalder Family History- OU Archives Library Athens Ohio

The Stalder Family Come to America (1918)

Great Uncle Rudolf De Steiger was a son of one of the so called "noble " families in Bern Switzerland. being a Grandson of old Bergo-Master Von Steiger (note the French change in the name assumed by the younger member of the family) who is mentioned in history in connection with the battle against Napolean's army. The old Mayor seems to have been rather unpopular with his people and had at last to flee to the mountains to avoid being slain by his own soldiers. The old Schultheiss' grandson seems to have some of revolutionary ideas also, particularly where his heart went astraying amongst the peasantry; hence, the pretty romance which resulted in the emigration of the Stalder family and made us Americans instead of Swiss.
Young Rudolf fell desperately in love with the beautiful Magdalen Stalder, who is described as being a very lovely girl, and determined to marry her (which, in view of the high position assumed by the Steiger family, kicked up no end of a row among the higher-ups), but Rudolf married the girl and was disowned by his family. So having asserted himself, he determined to take his young wife and go to America where there was plenty of room for his independent spirit to soar. He brought with him to America his father in law and mother in law, certain of their sons and daughters with their families, and other kin whose caliber led them to brave the frontier.
His father in law, Jacob Stalder, was none other than our great- grandfather and the loverly Magdalen our great aunt.
As stated before, this was the Fall of 1819, and winter was approaching. Horrible tales of Indian massacres and wild animal and all unknown dangers of a strange land had struck fear to the hearts of our pioneer ancestors, and it was decided to build a two-story log house large enough to house this large group of families. This was done and all lived together, sixty persons in all, during the first winter. In the spring, each family built his own cabin and established a home for his family according to Swiss tradition.
This large house was built on what is now called the "Old Elijah Wood Farm". On this farm is a small burial ground where lie the remains of our great grandparents Jacob and Anna Stalder and also here is buried the chivalrous Uncle Rudolf De Stiguer and Magdalen his lovely wife. Great Grandfather lived only a few years after coming here as evidenced by a deed of record in the recorder's office dated March 20, 1826, executed by Rudolf Steiger Von Grandson to Anna Stalder, relict of Jacob Stalder. It would seem that Magdalen also must have died before this deed was executed as she does not join or sign as wife in the deed as she did in a deed executed by her husband in 1823. Great-grandfather died suddenly in an apoplectic stroke in the morning while he was dressing. Son Frederick died also in this manner. He and grandmother were planning to go for a visit on Sunday morning. Grandfather was dressing to go when his summons came, and he fell dead immediately.
This is the story told of the Swiss colony upon landing on American soil, passed down thru the generations. They struck out for the frontier, intending to locate on lands which now form the state of Indiana. Upon reaching the Ohio River they embarked upon flat boats and floated down the river as far as Marietta, Ohio where the ran aground on a sand bar. The ancestral group took advantage of this stop to do a general washing and airing of clothing, etc. It is said that Great Uncle De Steiger had forty-four dozen fine white linen shirts on the line on this occasion. So much at least he had to show for his patrician origin.
They were delayed here for some time so it became noised about in real estate circles that a band of Swiss emigrants were in the land, and the ever energetic real estater made tracks for Marietta and endeavored to dissuade our worthy and noble great uncle from going further, as there was much fertile land to be had in Ohio. This real estate agent was a relative of Israel Putnam.
Great Uncle Rudolf sent Great-Grandfather Jacob Stalder to look at this land and bring back a report on it. He was gone so long that they began to think he was lost, or had been killed by the Indians, and one night the realtors gave Uncle De Stiguer some of their very strong wine and persuaded him to buy the land sight unseen. Later Great-grandfather returned with an unfavorable report, but the deed had already been executed and delivered. So this is why they came to locate on Federal Creek, Athens County, Ohio.
Great-grandfather Jacob Stalder was born and reared in Canton Bern Switzerland. His wife's name was Anna and she was also our great-grandmother. He was by trade a millwright in Switzerland. In this connection, I have heard my people say that in those days in Switzerland, people did not take their grain to the mill as they did in this country, but the miller went after the grain, ground it and returned to his customer again.
Our grandfather Frederick was one of the younger ones and was about eighteen years old when he came to America. His brothers who accompanied him there were Peter, Nicholas, Casper, and Andrew, our great uncles. Of our great aunts there were six, and my father always spoke of their married names as, Aunt De Steiger (Magdalen), Aunt Junod (Ursula), Aunt Weiss(Rosina), Aunt Hausner, and Aunt Finsterwald (Catharine). Uncle Weiss's name was Jacob. He was called "Old Jakie Weiss. Of these great aunts the husbands were all Swiss except Uncle Housner who was French. Of these branches of the family a number of the descendants still live in this vicinity.
Written by grandson of Frederich Stalder, who was the son of Jacob Stalder.

Jakob Stalder at age of 63 gave up the ancestral Stalder home, Hof Lehn, to come to the Ohio wilderness with half of his children and their families. His wife, too, must have been near his age. To this day Hof Lehn is occupied by a Stalder. It is kept by the descendants, and it is a beautiful farm home even today. Stalder s occupying the ancestral home for 400 years. The first Stalder who lived on Hof Lehn was Benedict Stalder, born in 1540, when he married Elizabeth Muster.

Jakob Stalder was born, babtized Feb 13, 1756 in the Affoltern Reformed Church, in Kanton Bern Switzerland. He was owner and occupant of our ancestral homestead Hof Lehn. he married Anna Hugli from Sumiswald, who died after bearing 8 children. He then married again with Anna Schweizer from the village of Hasli or Hasly, who bore 10 children. Jakob Stalder died in Athens County, Ohio 1826, his will was probated then. He was 70.

There were some pictures at the OU library in the Family Archives in the Stalder Family History file. I got a zerox about fifteen years ago, and unfortunately, it is in a box someplace as I have moved like five times since then. I know that the family went by Stalder, not the other way you are writing it as Stadler. I think you can write the fifth floor archives at the Ohio University Library and get a copy of the file. A descendant went to Bern and found the family along with their genealogy chart back to the 1400's. The Stalder family still owned Hof Len at Bern Switzerland according to this descendant. He lives in Denver Colorado and is a principal of a school system there.

That is about all I have to share. There may be other photo's and records at the Athens county genealogy society library in Athens Ohio.
