My connection to the Stille/STILLEY family is thru Olof Stille imigrating from Sweden in th e1640s and settling near what is now Philadelphia.  His descendant Jacob Stilley settled near Pittsburgh during the Revolutionary era.   He was the son of Johathan Stille and Magdalena Vanderveer.  Jacob and Agnes (Ann) married Feb. 5, 1760 at Holy Trinity Church in Wilmington, Delaware. One of their children was Tobias, born about 1769 listed as the eldest son.  I grew up going to the church that was built on the STILLEY property and my family is buried in the cemetery that was orginally the STILLEY's private  cemetery.  I would love to get in touch or help others that are related to the STILLEY family that ended up in what is now Jefferson Hills, Allegheny County, Pennsylvania.

I've had a brickwall with Esther Still m. to Jacob Phillips. I only have census information on them. It says she was b. about 1826 in NY, but the family moved to IA before any of the kids were born. They lived in the Delaware, IA area in 1860, 70 and 80. Kids names were Mary, Caroline, Fannie (my gggrandmother) and Elvira. I have copies of records from a distant cousin that shows they bought land from a John W Clark in Deleware, IA in 1853. It also shows a marriage entry for Elvira listing parents as Jacob Phillips and Esther Stull.
