==Early Life==
 
 
 
Isaac was born c. 1816 presumably in Westmoreland or Fayette County, Pennsylvania. The identity of his parents still remain a mystery and the first known record of Isaac isn't until 1842, where at the age of around 26 he is seen living in Franklin Township in Fayette County.
 
 
 
==Surname spelling==
 
  
 
Depending on the record, the surname is either spelled Stimmel or Stimmell. Census, newspaper, and tax records all appear to use both spellings. However, the gravestone records of Isaac's descendants consistently use Stimmell with two l's as the spelling.

There are other families that did spell the surname as Stimmel, and there are many gravestones spelled this way. Therefore, it is probable that there are other branches of the Stimmell family who spelled the surname as Stimmell. It is also possible that Stimmel was the original spelling and that Stimmell is altered one.

Welcome to MitchellLewisFamily.com

A free genealogical database that anyone can edit

71 historic individuals from all over the world

If the page name already exists, then the editor for that page will open. To create a different page, try adding birth and death dates.




Getting Started

To create a biography, type in a name into the box above, or click "Add a Person" on the left sidebar. When you enter a name, you will be taken to a blank editor page with an empty "Person" template. From here, simply enter the known information about that person. If some of the information is not known, simply leave it blank. You can always go back and add more information.

{{Person
|name        =
|image       =
|image_size  =
|birth_date  =
|death_date  =
|birth_place =
|death_place =
|father      =
|mother      =
|partner1    = 
}}

To link individuals in a tree, make sure to define the father and mother of a person as their exact page name. For example, if Joe Smith Jr. (1900-2000) has a father Joe Smith Sr. (1850-1950), then use the complete page name Joe Smith Sr. (1850-1950) as the father's name.

|father = Joe Smith Sr. (1850-1950)

Just like Wikipedia, there cannot be two pages that have the same name. Therefore, if a person's name is already taken, try adding a birth and death date (i.e. 1900-2000).

Joe Smith (1900-2000)

If there is an approximate birth or death date, use the letter "c." for circa.

Joe Smith (c.1815-1900)

If one of the dates is not known, use a "?".

Joe Smith (?-1812)

If the page name with dates is still taken, try adding a place location.

Joe Smith (1900-2000) (Pennsylvania)

For more than one spouse, change the ending number consecutively.

|partner1 = Mary Smith (1900-1940)
|partner2 = Elizabeth Jones (1900-1950)
|partner3 = Anna Brown (1900-1960)

Once a page has been created, you can use the regular wiki-syntax to talk about a person. For example, one can use equal signs to make sections, input files and pictures throughout the page, and make proper citations.
