      Who Steve Nissley is

(1)  If you want to know more about Steve Nissley and his personal background and who he is in this world, you are invited to keep reading this Steve Nissley page. 


(2) Steve Nissley is a naturally born citizen of the United States of America, he was born in the State of Virginia.    

(3) Steve Nissley is a native of the village of Fishersville in Augusta County between Waynesboro and Staunton nestled in the central part of the Shenandoah valley basically near the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains, the Alleghany Mountains being about 30 miles due west.

(4) Steve Nissley lives in one of the most gorgeous valleys in the country and has had the privilege of being brought up here and wouldn’t trade it for the world.  

(5) Steve Nissley does get itchy feet to travel at times to see what’s out there. Steve Nissley has always had this burning desire to bust loose and explore someplace else in the world, "anywhere but here", he says.

(6) But it seems like each time Steve Nissley leaves to go someplace else, whether it is only for a few days or for longer periods of time, he gets homesick very easily. It seems like Steve Nissley is always happy to come back to the valley, most natives of the valley would probably vouch for that also! 

(8) Steve Nissley was born to a large farm family in the Amish and Mennonite culture and heritage, which may have been a very good way of life back then.

(9) Steve Nissley’s parents, having been born and raised Amish, moved here from Kent County Delaware, in the Dover area, where they were raised. They later left the Amish and became Mennonite.

(10) Still later they settled for Amish Mennonite along with some participation with the old order Amish church still, simultaneously.

(11) Amish Mennonite is a step up from Amish and is a step down from Mennonite.

(12) Steve Nissley’s dad once asked him how he thinks he would have felt about it if the move from Delaware and the culture change from Amish to Mennonite, then to Amish Mennonite, had never happened.

(13) Steve replied that in such a case one would probably be ignorantly happy to have remained in ignorance as an Old Order Amish person, but that he is "very happy now that it is as it is"!

(14) Whenever you have a normal conversation with Steve Nissley, if he uses unclear terminology due to his Amish Mennonite heritage and culture, or if he says or writes things that are unclear please bring it to his attention.

(15) Steve Nissley is committed not to allow any irresponsible communications stemming from his heritage and culture to be in the way of any of his terminology so as to hinder, harm or hurt any of his relationships or friendships or to hurt or harm his social life or business dealings.

(16) What in life can be more important than to have clear communication in relating with our fellow human beings?

(18) All too often humans, especially anyone who was born in the Amish and Mennonite culture, may have been slightly reluctant in the past to take personal responsibility in a moment of any misunderstandings that may have been caused because by peer pressure or because of wanting to look good.

(19) Feel free to speak to Steve Nissley about it if you feel that he has not spoken clearly or appropriately concerning a matter.

(20) If Steve Nissley has been unclear in his speaking or has left you with unanswered questions about anything please make it known.

(21) Steve Nissley grew up in a large family on a small beef farm in the village of Fishersville VA in conjunction with another farm which his dad had also owned near the village of Stuarts Draft VA.

(22) Steve Nissley's parents moved to Stuarts Draft from Dover Delaware in 1951, perhaps in part to escape the rigidness of the "Old Order Amish community" in Delaware

(23) Thanks for the influence of numerous kinfolk already living in the Fishersville and Stuarts Draft area that took and welcomed them in as newcomers.

(24) Steve Nissley was born with the natural artistic talent and a passionate love for the interior painting trade, it seems as though he was “born with a paint brush in his hand”. You can read about his painting services in the painting section of this website.

(25) Steve Nissley's dad took great pride raising his children the right way with integrity and teaching them "hard labor”, and by all means, “do it right” if it was "worth doing at all", he would say. 

(26) Steve Nissley is grateful that in their youth, their dad had trained them hard labor, success, and perseverance.

(27)This training has really helped prepare Steve Nissley to establish himself and succeed in life in general and in his professional interior painting contracting business.

(28) Steve Nissley could not have asked for a smarter dad. One can imagine he is smiling down on his children now with great pride at their accomplished lives of success. 

(29) Steve Nissley’s dad was raised in the old time Amish Community of Delaware; his own father was a horse and buggy Amish Pastor "Bishop” in the Amish church in 5 church districts.


(30) Steve Nissley is one of the son’s of the late Ira D. Nissley, and their mother Matilda.  

(31) More often than not, Ira was called "I D", he had adopted a business title “Nissley And Son’s”. 

(32) Steve Nissley is sometimes called “Steve Jr” or “Ira Jr” or "I D Jr" though neither name is officially accurate. 

(33) Sometimes his friends call him Stevie or Steven. On his birth certificate, his official given name is Steven Eugene Nissley.

(34) Steve’s dad, the late Ira Nissley, was a Builder and a Master Brick and Block Layer; he also trained others in the trade.

(35) Steve Nissley’s dad, the late Ira Nissley, was also known as a Machinist. Plus that, Ira was also a Farmer, a Machinery dealer and a Real Estate and Electrolux Vacuum Cleaner Salesman. Steve enjoyed this saying; “we don’t call these sweepers, we call them vacuum cleaners because that is what they are” end quote.

(36) The late Ira Nissley was also a real estate investor and mortgage broker. Before he passed away, he asked Steve Nissley to continue that legacy, which Steve Nissley may do in the near future.

(37) Steve Nissley is a grandson of the late Pastor "Bishop" David LeRoy ("Roy"). Nissley. The late “Roy Nissley” family came the east from Kansas.

(38) It could be possible that some of the Nissley’s ancestry may have settled in Kansas as a result of having migrated from Russia.

(39) It was said that some of the Russian Mennonites, who had fled the Russian communist persecution against any Christian religion, migrated to America. It was said that some of them settled in Kansas.

(40) It was said that they brought with them their prize red wheat from Russia and raised and harvested they the wheat in Kansas. That is how Kansas became known for growing and producing Russian red wheat, so it was said.

(41) But Steve Nissley is a direct descendent of Christian Nissley who supposedly sailed here from Germany several hundred years ago.

(42) As a result of having no resources of his own to pay his ship fare, Christian Nissley was supposedly stranded on the ship, unable to exit until someone was willing to pay his ship fare.

(43) Research revealed, or so Steve Nissley was told, that Christian Nissley was supposedly taken under the wing of an Amish man who paid his ship fare.

(44) Steve Nissley was told that this is probably how it came to be that Christian Nissley was introduced to the Amish way of life. 

(45) It is supposedly not believed that Christian Nissley was previously of the Amish or Mennonite culture. 

(46) Beings that Steve Nissley also does have some difficulties at times pronouncing the sounding of some of the other difficult Amish or Mennonite names, he certainly understands if you have difficulty with the pronunciation of the name Nissley.

(47) The pronunciation of Nissley is pronounced as it is spelled, or so we say. Northerners seem to have the easiest time with this. There are only short vowels in the name.

(48) Southerners tend to draw the name out by pronouncing it with a long "i" or sounding out the "i" as an "e".  The actual "e" in the name Nissley is rather subtle or silent or carried out as a long "e" In writing it out some have written Nicely or Nicley or Nessley or Nisly or Nisley.

(49) While these are all correct names in themselves, they are independent names, and likely came from the original name, none of them are the correct way to spell or pronounce "Nissley".

(50) Steve Nissley is believed to be in the sixth generation going forward. 

(51) Please, if you have any further information on this subject of Steve Nissley's family tree, or if you know of someone who does have, please do not hesitate to let Steve Nissley know about it.

(52) Steve Nissley wants to do some traveling in search of kinfolk, friends and other lost connections in the Amish and Mennonite communities across the nation. Help Steve Nissley build a family tree story.

(53) Steve Nissley would like to find some Amish kinfolk who would teach him how to operate a farm horse to plow a field; this would be a good experience and valuable knowledge. It could turn out to be a good experience to be able to drive a road horse, he is hoping he could adapt to the real country life and live like the Old Order Amish do for a short while. 

(54) Steve Nissley wishes he could find all the living descendents of Christian Nissley and Thomas Lee if it were possible, but that is a much larger task than Steve Nissley wants to take on right now, but still, if you are one of those descendents in the following paragraph, let Steve Nissley know.

(55) Steve Nissley wants to find as many descendents as possible of his paternal great grandparents, “Abraham and Elizabeth (Kauffman) Nissley” and Moses and Lydia (Miller) Schrock, and also as many descendents as possible of his maternal great grandparents: Noah and Matilda (Yoder) Lee and Gideon and Lydia (Yoder) Byler.

(56) If you have any such information, if you care to, please send Steve Nissley all the info you have on hand. Thank you so very much!

(57) If you care to, each of you who is a descendent of those mentioned, please send me your name, address, phone, email etc.

(58) And if you don’t mind, please include a brief personal statement or brief life story on a 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of copy paper and send it to Steve Nissley by snail mail or ask him for an email address. Thank you so very much!

(59) Please feel free to use both sides of a regular 8 1/2 x 11 size sheet of copy machine paper. Please include your signature on both sides as permission to use the page in the “family tree book”. If you email it you can sign it electronically

(60) When Steve Nissley has printed the book, it will be available on a 
donation gift basis to cover expenses.  A pre-donation gift would be more helpful so that Steve Nissley can cover the expenses already.

(61) If you are part of the family tree and would like to help, you may send Steve Nissley a suggested gift of about $14.00 to $18.00 of any amount towards the book that you feel is reasonable or appropriate.

(62) You may send the gift to Steve Nissley P.O. Box 1062 Fishersville VA 22939 or you may use the gift form. Thank you! 


And now for Steve Nissley interior painting

(1) :n this portion of this web page, if you feel at some point that it seems as though Steve Nissley is repeating himself below here somewhat in regards his last name and his background and as to whom he is as a painter, it is probably true in a sense.

(2) But Steve Nissley chose to do it that way because he is basically describing himself below here in a slightly different way in light of who he is as a interior painting contractor, even though he is the same person otherwise.

The said numbered “sections” from the list above begin below the line here:


                             The Sections:


Section 1 >   Steve Nissley’s social name and painting business name:

(1) Steve generally do Steve Nissley painting business operations under his own good name, although he may at times use a Corporation.

(2) As a highly recommended Steve Nissley painting contractor, most of his customers either call him Steve, Steven, Mr. Steve, Mr. Nissley, Mr. Painter or Mr. Painter Man.

(3) As a Steve Nissley painting contractor, occasionally some of his customers actually call him “the paint man with the yellow business card”.

(4) Although, as a Steve Nissley painting contractor, sometimes in the past Steve Nissley has also given out business cards of other colors, including various shades of yellow, white, lavender, red, pink, purple, green, blue, orange, gold, beige, brown, and tan, etc.

(4) As a Steve Nissley painting contractor, his birth name of course is Steven. But most people call him Steve and he usually introduces himself as Steve. Some of Steve Nissley’s dad’s friends often either called Steve pet names or called him after his dad, like Ira Jr. or I. D. Jr. or called him Steve Jr., neither of these is correct, but he didn’t mind.

(5) Apart from being called Steve Nissley as a friend or a painting contractor, some of his friends like to call him Stevie, Stevo, or Sir.

(6) Some of Steve Nissley’s friends at times simply like to call him “Nissley” because there are so many guys around with the name “Steve” and because the name “Nissley” is uniquely unusual around here. It is more of a northern or western name.

(7) The proper pronunciation for the name “Nissley”, as in Steve Nissley painting, is to use only SHORT VOWELS; most of the emphases in the name NISSLEY is put on the two SS’s, sort of like you were going to “sssigh” but not quite like saying “sshhh…”.

(8) The sound of the “I” in the name “NISSLEY” is neither pronounced like a long I nor like a long E. And please keep in mind that the sound of the E is also not actually pronounced like an E.

(9) Also, please keep in mind that NISSLEY is definitely not pronounced like “NESTLE chocolate” or like the sound of “NEEssley”, in other words it is neither pronounced like N E S L E E  or   N E E S L E E  or  N I S L E I. Some have mistakenly called us Missley

(10) Steve Nissley’s mom was born and raised a Lee, so he does have Lee in his blood, therefore, either in a personal level or in Steve Nissley painting business, there is really no harm done with the pronunciation “NissLee”, but that is still not the proper pronunciation.

(11) That pronunciation would be fairly accurate though if one E were left off. In other words, the sounding of the E as in LEY (in the latter half of Nissley) should be softly pronounced a little more like “Leigh” without putting any emphases on either the G or the H in “Leigh”.

(12) The name “Nissley” is a German name, it is frequently found in PA and particularly Kansas where my granddad was from. Steve Nissley has read somewhere that the name Nissley stems from the name “Nicolas”.

(13) The idea that the names Nissley and Nicolas being in the same family linage may subconsciously be one of the reasons that Steve often gravitates to watching DVD movies that are played by the actor Nicolas Cage to chill out after a long hard day of creative Steve Nissley painting.

(14) Sometimes he feels like he can really admire the character that is usually portrayed by Nicolas Cage in most of the movies he acts in.

(15) Not always, but in many cases Nicolas appears heroic, and Steve Nissley really does enjoy watching him acting out his unique characteristics as a hero in a story. Nicolas nearly always plays out his character in the movie portrayed as self giving, displaying an unselfish sacrifice on behalf of the well being of the other characters playing in his movies.   

(16) Whether on a personal level or in the Steve Nissley painting  business, either way, he really does not mind what someone may choose to call him so long as you call him. Furthermore Steve Nissley feels like there is no harm done spelling his name with all lower casings; > IE: Steve Nissley.

(17) And be sure to call Steve Nissley in time for Christmas dinner, or to socialize, and when they open the gates of heaven over yonder, like “when the roll is called up yonder” as that one song goes.

(18) According to biblical scripture, Steve Nissley will even have a new name in heaven! Steve Nissley is so curious what that name will be after his interior Steve Nissley painting business and life is over on this earth!


Section 2 >    Amish & Mennonite Heritage and Principles in Steve Nissley painting business:

(1) Steve Nissley painting entrepreneurship was founded with the legacy of honesty that was passed down, instilled so early in his life by his dad, stemming from the Amish & Mennonite culture and heritage in which he himself was raised, and raised all of his own children likewise.

(2) But let Steve Nissley be quick to say that one cannot honestly lift the culture up above other cultures. While the Amish and Mennonite culture has basically carried its own weight with a legacy of truth and character, there is no one, no, none have ever walked on this earth with a 100% flawless record apart from Jesus Christ himself, whether in the Steve Nissley painting  business or in any everyday life situation.

(3) Steve Nissley’s own parents were both born and raised in very large families on hard laboring farms in the old time horse and buggy Amish culture in the Dover DE area. It was the “Old Order Amish” Community of Kent County, Delaware, an extension of the PA Dutch, German Culture and Heritage".

(4) Steve Nissley’s grandfather was an old fashioned “Amish Bishop”, as Senior Pastor of the entire 5 district community. Steve Nissley’s dad was raised up very strictly as a PK (preacher's kid) by his parents.

(5) A few years after Steve Nissley’s parents were married, they moved to VA, settling in the Amish & Mennonite Community of Stuarts Draft & Fishersville.

(6) Some of Steve Nissley’s parent’s close kinfolk from Delaware and elsewhere, and also some of their Delaware friends were already well established in either the Amish community or the Mennonite community here in the Shenandoah Valley.

(7) This is how it came about that Steve Nissley and his siblings were so fortunate as to have been born in the beautiful dogwood and cardinal state which everyone endeavors to keep earth friendly green and very alive with the cardinal and the dogwood tree. This was a perfect place for Steve’s parents to raise the kids as a family and for Steve Nissley to establish a painting business!

(8) At first, still being old order Amish when moving to Virginia, his parents then joined the more lenient local old order Amish Church in Stuarts Draft VA, but in a few years they uprooted and switched over to an even more lenient Mennonite church, of course that very much disappointed their old order Amish parents back in Delaware.

(9) With the influence and intervention of the Amish and Mennonite elders and kinfolk, Steve Nissley and his siblings happened to get an extra dose of the indoctrination of the intensified church doctrine and dogma from both view points, but eventually, miraculously they finally did learn to trust thier spiritual well being to the hand of God independently on their own level of understanding as separate individuals.  

(10) Thank God the supplier of good gifts, in thier youth thier dad consistently taught them high achievement success and perseverance in real life, not only in the hard laboring farming occupation but also to be independently business minded, whether in the Steve Nissley painting business or otherwise.

(11) Steve Nissley and his siblings grew up in on small family farm in the village of Fishersville, along with another farm, which our dad had also owned, in the Stuarts Draft area. Their dad was surely the smartest man around. 

 (12) Besides being a farmer, their ingenious dad was very skilled with a welder, he could fix nearly anything with hammer or a welder or a piece of old baler wire, the kind of wire from old fashioned hay baling machines that were run by steam engines like Steve Nissley had seen at a old time steam show once.

(13) Steve Nissley’s dad was also a well known used farm machinery dealer, an excellent skilled machinist, a master brick and block layer in masonry, a professional realtor, a friendly Electrolux vacuum salesman and an independent real estate investor.

 (14) Because of the Amish and Mennonite farming culture and heritage that Steve Nissley’s dad was trained in, he constantly kept his children in check and kept them very active on the farm and to be better and better examples to others.

(15) Steve Nissley’s dad faithfully passed down his own father’s historic teachings and training on to his children, including principles of integrity for Steve Nissley painting business.
