George T. Stehling - Stehling-Blommer Wagon Works - 1870s-1920s - Milwaukee, Wisconsin


Stehling Blommer Waggon Works was located at 553-555 10th Street in Milwaukee in 1889 1890 and was co-owned by John Blommer and George T. Stehling.

Thanks for your reply-My g grandfather George T Stehling was born in Milwaukee in 1852,,married Mary Blommer in 1873-had 4 or 5 children-one of which was my grandfather Frank G Stehling. He died the day before my father was born in 1909. I have always been told that I was related to all the Stehlings in WI. Who knows? So far I can't find any listings anywhere on the surname. My gg & g fathers were owners of
Stehling-Blommer Wagon Works in Milwaukee until it burned in 1908.

I believe all of my Stehling's were from Milwaukee County although my ggrandfather lived in Marshfield when he passed away in 1932.

Am looking for information for decendants of George T. Stehling B 1852 Milw. WI Mary Blommer B. 1853- Milw. WI. Any information re: Stehling Blommer Wagon Works which burned in 1908. Seven children born of this marriage. Frank George Stehling - son, was my grandfather, D. 1909 day before my Father, Frank T. Stehling was born.


CHARLES WILLIAM STEHLING, priest of the Catholic church and professor of dogmatic theology at St. Francis Seminary, is a native of Milwaukee, born Aug. 21, 1872. His father, Joseph Stehling was born in Koenigswinter, Germany, in 1846, and came to this country as a child of seven or eight years, with his parents. He was reared in Milwaukee, and there married Catherine Blommer, a native of the city, who died August, 1907. Another son, Edward, is assistant rector of the Church of St. Raphael, at Madison, Wis. Charles W. was educated at the parochial school of St. Joseph, Milwaukee, and later at St. Francis Seminary, subsequently spending two years at the University of Innsbruch, Tyrol, Austria, where he was ordained by Bishop Prickson in Trol, July 18, 1895, and officiated at his first mass one month later, at the Church of St. Boniface. He served for ten years as assistant at St. Vincent's church, Oshkosh, Wis., and in 1905 he went to Rome, Italy, to study, and there received the degree of D.D. at the end of the year. He further pursued his studies at the Catholic University of America, at Washington, D.C., for another year, and in 1907 was appointed to his present position in the Seminary of St. Francis. He is a careful and conscientious student, and is eminently fitted for the responsible position which he now occupies.
