I have also been tracking a STIELY family in Heidelberg Twp Berks Co PA and compiling quite a bit of information on them.  Dietrich STIELY / STILY  and wife Anna Maria had 11 children baptized in Hains Church in Wernersville from 1761 to 1789. I have not found a connection linking this family to mine.
I have since found the Staley family link back to “The Ship” and am working on an update to my website, but in the meantime….
George Stahley listed below was one of four sons of Benjamin Stehley born about 1777 and Hanna Nagle from Elizabeth Twp Lancaster Co PA. Benjamin was the son of Christian Stehley b. 1730 in Canton Bern Switzerland to Ulrich and Anna Steahli.
    Ulrich and Anna Staehli came to Philadelphia PA on the ship Pink Plaisance in September of 1732. They took up land in Elizabeth and  Bethel townships in Lancaster Co PA. That land stayed in the Staley name for nearly 100 years until grandson John Stehley died intestate, unmarried. The land was taken by nephews Jerimiah Wolf and John Ench.
