(Her father, Jacob Stingelin, a local farmer and cabinet maker, had emigrated from Pratteln, Baselland Canton, Switzerland in 1845. Henry's family, the Moeschinger family, had originally come from Häfelfingen, also in Basel-land, but about 10 miles (16km) to the southeast in the hilly part of the canton --the "Oberbaselbiet".)
