LIfe Sketch of Samuel Stettler
I was born on March 15, 1851 in Bantigen Hubel by Bolligen, Canton Bern, Switzerland. My father was Christian Stettler of Bolligen, Bern, Switzerland. My mother was Anna Barbara Rosina Mourer of Zolikofen, Bern, Switzerland. They were married on October 25, 1850.
I went to school in Geristein, it was one half hour walk from our home. I helped with the farmwork around our place which was a good farm and we earned our living on this place. My father also produced charcoal and earned a good living for the family in this pursuit. We always had two or three cows, geese. and many chickens. We always raised the calves form these cows and many were sold to the butchers shop. There were no dairies around, as such, and we made our own butter - 6 to 7 lbs. at a time which we also sold for from 20 cents to 30 cents per pound. We grew our own wheat and threshed it outwith hand flails, at least enough for our own use. We kept from ten to fifteen head of sheep. We sheared these sheep and washed, carded, spun and dyed the wool, brown and blue and this was knitted into woman's and girls's clothing. Mother made girls and womens clothing and a tailor came to our home who made boys and mens clothing. Clothing was very lasting and we had clothing for Sundays and other sets of clothing for week and workdays. Mother also used cotton and linens and she had been trained in the art of sewing cothing and spinning and weaving woolens. Stockings were knitted by hand.
I don't remember ever having a doctor come to our home. Mother was an expert in the use of herbs and she knew what was good for and which illnesses required the use of which medicinal herb. We never had any really serious illnesses to my recollection. When I was about eight years old I had a very serious cut on my hand and lost a good deal of blood. My father bound up the wound to stop the flow of blood. The gash healed very well even though the scar is visible to this day--being in my eighty second year.
I worked around home until March 1871 when I left and apprenticed myself to learn the trade of 'wheelwright'. In this apprenticeship I had to feed and milk the cows to pay for the training I was being given, this went on for two years. From there I went to Schlatt by Koniz and on this first paying job I recieved 50 cents per week in addition to board and room and this was used to buy myself a pair of leather boots. I stayed there four months and then went to Holligen by Bern and worked for a gardener for three months. From there I went to Madretsh by Biel and found work again in my profession as wheelwright. To begin with I recieved $1.25 per week and later was raised to $1.75 per week and still later that was doubled to $3.50 per week. I worked on that job for two and a half years. I then went to Jegensdorf where I earned $5.25 per week. I then had an urge to travel and went to Waadland toward Ferrenberg and worked round and about this area for two years, afterward returning to my childhood of Geristein to mother's brother, Uncle Niklaus Maurer where I started my own business. I was my own boss and earned about $1.25 per day. This made me very happy to have things so good. I was there for about two years and then returned to Ferrenberg where I worked for farmers making wagons, plows, harrows and other tools.
On the 2nd of November 1878 I was married to Marianna Jufer. We lived in a three story apartment house and had two rooms on the upper floor. Our first child, Marie Anna was born on 11 Feb 1879. My wife Marianna had a very difficult time during this labor and because of very stormy weather was unable to obtain any help untill a good neighbor came to the door and she assisted with the birth of the child. Marianna was soon well again. On 28 July 1880 our second child, Rosette was born three months premature. She looked so tiny and helpless that no one believed that she would live. However, she was soon quite well and grew up, though with a retarded mentality. At this time she is 52 years old and has been able to work well and do many things despite her handicaps. (Rosette passed away August 11, 1952)
We moved to Gloggenthal by Thun, Steffisburg. There I had a large factory-manufacturing plant - with two journeyman, one semi-skilled workman and one apprentice who lived with us. Here we had an elderlly women to tend our children and everything went well as we had a son born to us on 9th November 1881. Eleven days following the birth of this child we moved again to Worben by Brugg, Nidau. Here we had a shop and four acres of land with a large orchard.
From there we went to Werthof, Lappeln by Aarberg
