Stiltner Surname History
America, since its discovery, has held an attraction to many early European populations. Populations stressed by poverty, hunger, religious persecutions, and unfair taxes. The popular legend holds that Fredrick Stigler fled Germany and stowed away on a ship bound for America. He landed in Norfork, Virginia, a staved and hungry man. He was drafted into the Hessian Army and later deserted and was drafted by the Colonial Army. Legend says he robbed the paymaster and stole a horse. It was said he changed his name to Stiltner to avoid detection.
History shows that the formation of last names came about in European countries as a means to tracking citizens to collect taxes.
