bullet  Birth Notes:

5. Story. I have not been able to determine where Elizabeth Councilman fits in relation to Jacob Councilman and the other early Councilman family members. She is not listed as one of the orphans of Jacob Councilman when he dies. She might be too old in 1793 to be considered an orphan, or she might not be a child of Jacob. She does not appear in the 1790 Census (Jacob is the only named Councilman) so she is not the wife or daughter of some other Councilman in the area.

6. Story. From information on web site about Stoner's (Steiner's) Church in Alamance Co, many records transcribed. Information was compiled by Larry Noah, and is copyrighted. Includes the following (two mentions of Elizabeth Councilman):

Stoner's Church became an active congregation about 1801. The church was dissolved about 1886. The cemetery is presently located in a pasture near the village of Belmont (near Graham) in Alamance County. It is thought that before they organized as Stoner's they were associated with the Lutherans who later formed St. Paul's Lutheran Church.

The Church book of Stoner's was translated from the original German by Reverend D. I. Offman. A copy was type from Rev. Offman's translation by Calvin Hinshaw in 1959. It is my understanding that a copy of the typed records is at Guilford College. I have also been told that the original records are in the Library at Catawba College, Salisbury, N.C. My information is that these records are in such a fragile condition that the public is no longer allowed to view them.

The following is from a copy of Calvin Hinshaw's transcription of Rev. D. I. Offman's

Delila, daughter of Christian Isley, born June 25,1823, baptized Aug. 3,1823 by J. Rudy. Sponsors, Jesse Boggs and Mary Isley.

Sarah, daughter of Henry Shatterly and wife Maria, born Nov. 12,1806, baptized Mar. 14,1807. Sponsors, Henry Thomas and Elizabeth Councilman.
