I. Jacob Stoner, or Steiner, was born , 1713, and died 1745, according to the dates on a tombstone in the old German Reformed graveyard in Frederick, MD, which stone is probably that of our ancestor. It is quite probable that he was the Jacob Steiner who arrived at Philadelphia in the vessel Pennsylvania, Merchant, from Rotterdam on Sept. II, 1731 (Rupp's List, p. 20). He had settled in Frederick County before 1736. On June 11 of that year Benjamin Tasker covenanted to convey a tract of land known as Tasker's Chance, lying on the Monocacy, to Abraham Miller, Daniel France, John George Lay, Joseph Smith, Peter Laney and Jacob Stoner for the sum of two thousand pounds. They were unable to raise the money and the sale fell through. In 1744 Daniel Dulany bought Tasker's Chance, probably as agent and attorney for the actual settlers. On July 28, 1746, Dulany transferred to the settlers most of the tract, on which he had laid out the town of Frederick. Jacob Stoner received the following tracts: "The Barrens," 103 acres for 25 pounds, beginning 160 perches from the Monocacy; "Indian Field," 202 acres for 15 pounds; "Mill Pond," 292 acres, on the Tuscarora Creek where it empties into the Monocacy, where Jacob Stoner's house and mill were; and "Bear's Den," or "Durburg," on the Tuscarora below "Mill Pond," 172-1/2 acres, 25 pounds. The last two tracts adjoined the lands of Stephen Ramsburg and Abraham Miller. In 1742 he signed a petition to have Prince George parish divided and a new one established. He was evidently a man of some means and prominence in the community. He left no will and his estate was never administered upon (Land Records J, 1193, W. R. 17, 234, L. i). He married Magdaline Whisler, Jacob Steiner's land was divided in 1767. If we assume this was done at the attaining majority of his youngest son, Benedict, which is quite probable, we shall have Benedict as born in 1746.

2. John Michael Steiner, Cpt. b. 1735 Frederick Co., MD d. Sep 1798 m. 175_ Catharine Elizabeth Ramsburg b. 29 Jun 1739 d. 29 Jan 1792. John inherited from his father the Mill Pond estate and carried on the business of a miller, while conducting farming operations at the same time. He was very successful and possessed a large fortune for those days. Family tradition has reported that he was a soldier in the French and Indian war; Col. F. B. Steiner states that in 1838 he was told by an old Revolutionary soldier, then ninety-six years of age, that Capt. Stoner served in Braddock's campaign and that he was in the quartermaster's department of the Continental Army during the Revolution. He was a prominent citizen, being captain of militia in 1775. He served as a member of the Committee of Observation for the Middle District of Frederick County.

On Aug. 19, 1767, John transferred to him Stoner's Chance, a tract of land on the Tuscarora. A part, at least, of this land he sold to Balzer Getzendanner on Apr. 5, 1770, when he was still unmarried. He was a farmer. His brother John administered his estate. From there being no distribution of the estate recorded, it is possible that his wife and daughter were already dead.

On the place was a large and never failing spring, and good apple and peach orchards. After his death the property was sold pursuant to a decree of court (Bartgis Federal Gazette).
