Newspaper Article written by F. M. Stout
1845 - 1928 , Texas

"I was born three miles east of Daingerfield, Texas, Oct. 19, 1845. Moved to Hopkins county, Texas with my parents three years later. Lived in Hopkins county until grown and married. Moved to Red River County thirty-three years ago. I was married to Miss Alice Christian in 1874. To us were born eleven children, all of whom are living. My wife died Dec. 7, 1917. I moved to Broken Bow two years later, where I now reside.

I volunteered in the Confederate Army at the age of 17. Left home in Agust of 1862, was in Askew's Company E. Stone's Regiment of the Second Texas Rangers, and served in the Trans-Mississippi Department under General Greene. I served until the end of the war, in 1865, and was discharged at Hempstead, Texas in the autumn of that year. I was in only one hard fight, which was at Manfield, La. Was in quite a numnber of skirmishes. I was in the first battle at Mansfield and during the second fight was sent to guard prisoners.

If any of my old friends and comrades see this I would be glad if they would write me.

My father was born in 1818 at Washington, Ark. and came to Texas with my grandparents in 1819. My grandmother rode horseback from Arkansas to Texas holding my father in her arms and leading a pack horse, while my grandfather walked in front carrying his rifle, for protection. My father, J.S. Stout, was in the Mexican War from 1836 to the end of the war of Mexico and Texas. He served under General sam Houston, having been one of the men who guarded Santa Anna after his capture.

My mother's maiden name was Elvira Rickey, better known by her nickname, Bob. She was married to my father in 1840. Nine boys and two girls were born to them, of whom I am the third child. Only five of us are living. I am sending a photograph of the five brothers here with. - F.M. Stout, Broken Bow, Ok."
