Marsteller Family Research Association

http://www.marsteller.org/

This association was formed in 1997 to further the research of surnames with the origin of Marställer or as it is more commonly known in Germany, Marsteller. This rare surname is of German origin and is found, historically speaking, almost exclusively in a small region of what is now West Central Germany.

To date, there have been three primary Marsteller family lines identified that can trace their roots to the following towns in Germany:

* Pfungstadt, Hesse, Germany (approx. 25 kilometers south of Frankfurt)

* Gruningen (now part of Polheim), Hesse, Germany (approx. 25 kilometers north of Frankfurt)

* Pliezhausen, Wurttemburg, Germany (a couple hours south of Frankfurt)

Each of these families have traced their ancestry back to the 1500/1600’s. To date, no connection has been found between the three families, however given the close proximity of the locations and the rarity of the surname, a connection is certainly possible and still being investigated.

With the huge emigration of the Palatinate*, the Marsteller family has spread across America and indeed the globe. *the geographic name of the region where these towns were found during the 1600/1700's

This website is dedicated by the Association in memory of all our ancestors.

Variations of this name include: Marstallar, Marstella, Marstellar, Marstiller, Masteller, Mausteller, Moshteller, Mostellar, Mosteller, Mostiller, Mostoller

We encourage anyone with information on these lines to contact us through this page with the link provided at the bottom. We would be happy to add your material to our growing database and post your name on this page as a direct contact for that line.

David J Mosteller Hello Mostellers. My family, as I know, came from the Dutch area of Pfungstadt, Germany and spelled it "Marsteller" then. It changed to Mosteller in the U.S. around the 1850's. Johann Peter Marsteller was born in Germany and came to the US around 1740. His son Peter is where my family tree continues and where the name changes it's spelling to Mosteller with his son George. Would love to hear from any of you from Omar Mosteller's family. My Grandfather was Garland Jay, the youngest of the 11 children Omar and Pariscity had. Would be great to reunite with long lost cousins. January 3 at 7:17am

Cliff Mosteller The evolution of the family name began in the 1300's in southern Germany. The original name was MARKSTALLER. In the 1400's, they shortened it to MARSTALLER. By the 1500's both Marstaller and Marsteller were in use. The most common spelling in Germany was MARSTALLER. The name brought to the American colonies however was MARSTELLER. The name MOSTELLER and other variations were most likely a misspelling of Marsteller.

Cassel's German English dictionary defines the word "marstall" as stables. Adding "er" to the end of "marstall" makes the word refer to an action or occupation. The literal translation is "stabler" or a person who works in the stables.

Professor Josef Karlmann Brechenmacher says the name Marstaller is the same as, and comes from, the medieval German name Markstaller. Mar(s)stalis an old middle high German work that can roughly translate into modern German as meaning Pferdestall, or horse stable. Brechenmacher goes on to say that the best translation of Markstaller is Pferdeknecht or Horse Groomer. January 21 at 5:44am

This is the grave of Mary Ann Lutz Mosteller (1803-1859), wife of Michael Jr, who was a son of Michael Sr., who was a son of Johann Peter. I found the grave about six years ago. When the original stone became unreadable I decide to place another in front of the original. The cemetery is in Marion, NC just off I-40. Michael Jr. grave is in Lincoln County, NC. That family site is on the Historical Registry and should be protected for years to come. Added by Cliff Mosteller to the group "Mosteller Pride!"


The following information is probably incorrect: Mosteller (and its spelling variations) is almost certainly German not Welsh

http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=2221992318

"The origins of the Welsh name Mosteller go back to the ancient Celtic culture that existed in the hills and moors of Wales. The forbears that initially held the name Mosteller once lived in or near the Welsh settlement of Mostyn in Whitford. The surname Mosteller belongs to the category of habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads. Spelling variations of this family name include: Mostyn, Mostin, Mostyne, Mosten, Mostine and others. First found in Flintshire where they were descended from one of the fifteen noble tribes of Wales."

The source of this information [[http://www.houseofnames.com/ | House of Names] is a commercial entity selling various "family history" related artifacts (family crest, coat of arms, coffee mugs). The claims stated for "Mosteller" are apparently bogus. For example, they give different information for "Mosteller" (Welsh) and "Marsteller" (English). This contradicts numerous sources where family history has been traced by family records, public records and tombstones.

Philip [christened Philippus] grew up in Philadelphia County, now Montgomery County, PA. He received a good German and English education and attended the Augustus Evangelical Lutheran Church in Trappe, PA. His father, Frederick Ludwig Marsteller, died when he was 12 and his mother, Anna Barbara Stark, finished raising him on the family homestead. Both parents immigrated to America from Pfungstadt, Hesse, Germany in 1729, joining Frederick’s brother, Johann Georg Marsteller.

Philip became a close friend to General Washington and he eventually served as a pallbearer at George Washington’s funeral. He was the only non-mason that served as a pallbearer. In addition two of his descendant's, Philip Jr., and grandson, Samuel A. Marsteller also served in the Funeral Cortege. Several letters exist in the George Washington section of the Manuscript division in the Library of Congress from President Washington to Philip.
