Johann Friedrich Stoll, son of Johann Konrad Stoll, was born on 12 December 1735 in Adelshofen. He married in nearby Ittlingen to Maria Eva Schuhmacher, daughter of Ulrich & Anna Eva Schuhmacher, on 17 November 1758. Maria Eva had been born on 14 April 1732 in Ittlingen.

They had two children, each baptized in Ittlingen: (1) Johann Konrad (born 15 March 1760; baptized 17 March 1760; died 22 August 1760) and (2) Maria Margaretha (baptized in 1761).

Johann Friedrich Stoll, his wife & daughter, as well as his mother-in-law Anna Eva Schuhmacher immigrated to Denmark (Schleswig-Holstein) departing from Altona, Duchy of Holstein, on 14 June 1762 under the leadership of Adam Saam. They arrived in the city of Flensburg, Duchy of Schleswig, on 19 June 1762.

Mother-in-law Anna Eva Schuhmacher remarried on 29 July 1763 in the parish of Handewitt (Schleswig) to Jürgen Ernst Stull.
