Harry H. Stimmel

Harry H. Stimmel, born Oct 1873 in Berks County, PA, was adopted by his aunt, Sarah Ann "Sallie" Stimmel, and her husband, Jonathan L. Yoder, who were married in 1858. Isaac Stimmel Jr.'s first wife, Kitilia, died before 1876 and Isaac remarried. Maybe Harry was their son. The obituary of Sallie states that they adopted two sons: Harry Stimmel and Jonathan Burkett. Harry married Katie F. Heydt in 1895 in Berks County, PA, and had at least three children.

Harry was born the second

Harry was born the second son to Samuel and Emma (Hilbert) Stimmel. Emma passed away (sometime before 1880) and Samuel married her younger sister Louisa Savannah Hilbert. It appears that his older brother Oscar, born in September of 1869 remained with the couple, while Harry was raised by Sarah and Jonathan.
