Biographical Sketch of Henry STOLLAR
Source:  Anon.  1893.  Commemorative Biographical Record of Washington County, Pennsylvania.  J.H. Beers & Co., Chicago.
1439

HENRY STOLLAR, a retired farmer of East Finley township, now living in Claysville, was born in Schuylkill county, Penn.  His father, Andrew Stollar, was a native of the same county, where he was reared and educated, and, in 1821, Andrew came with the family to Washington county.  They made the journey in emigrant wagons and, finally settling in East Finley township, purchased a farm of 100 acres, which was but slightly improved and covered with thickets.

Andrew Stollar was married to Rosanna, daughter of George Ely, who came to Washington county some years prior to the Stollar family. The following children were born to this union: Peter, Henry, William, Daniel, Rosanna (Mrs. Peter Earnest), Christina (Mrs. Isaac Earnest), Catherine (Mrs. George Plants) and Mary (Mrs. Henry Sprowls).  Mr. Stollar was a Democrat, an active worker in the party.  In religion he and his family were members of the United Brethren Church.

Henry Stollar (the subject of our sketch) was born March 12, 1811, and in his boyhood days attended the subscription schools.  The "classic halls of learning" were at that date erected from rough hewn logs, and each one was furnished with a huge fireplace, puncheon floor and other primitive furniture.  In 1832 he was united in marriage with Mary, daughter of George Ely, and five children were born to their union:  Peter, George, Reuben, William and James.  The mother of this family died in 1840, and Mr. Stollar was afterward married to Jemima, daughter of George Nickerson, of West Bethlehem township, this county.  They have had one daughter, Sarah (wife of Charles Ely).  Mr. Stollar first purchased 100 acres of wild land and erected a house upon it, remaining there twelve years, when he bought the farm of 230 acres that he now owns and which he has much improved.

He has always been an active member of the Democratic party and cast his first vote for Jackson.  He is a zealous worker in the United Brethren Church with which he is connected.
