Notes for JOSEPH STEFFLER:

Much of the information on the descendants of Joseph Steffler and Margaret Bauman was obtained from Denise Popowich of Kitchener/ Waterloo. Without her work on this part of our family, I would not know as much as I know now. Thank you Denise.

Sponsors at baptism were George Feist age 3_? and Joseph Schall age 25.

Joseph Steffler stated that he was born in Alsace france. He came to Puslinch with his parents {Anthony and Catherine Fritz} in about 1830-1831. In 1841 he marries Joseph and Josephine Bauman's daughter Margaret. In 1842 he is listed as a head of household along with his father Anthony on Lot 26 Con.7 (map) Puslinch. Not long after this he moves to Wilmot Township (Lot 5 Con.3). In later years he owned a house in Bamberg (Wilmot Township).

There was a son born to Joseph and Margaret on July 30,1848.He was baptised "Joseph". The sponsors at his baptisim were Joseph Willy and Dorothea Fritz. I am assuming that he died before 1852 when another son was born whom Joseph and Margaret also called "Joseph". I believe it was this Joseph who survived to marry Clara Stoesser.

The schedule of death states that Joseph was a retired farmer. He died of a gravel inflammation of the urinary organs. The doctor was Dr. Bingham of Waterloo. The witness was Anthony Steffler, son of the deceased, from Bamberg, Ontario.
