|Death: ||Nov. 23, 1914|
Opal Aline Stout was the daughter of John Charles Fremont Stout and Sarah 'Sallie' Elizabeth Gilkey Stout. She married Robert 'Jack' Quelch in Chicago about 1908. They had two daughters, Florence Hazel and Mildred. According to Cook County Death Records she died 23 Nov 1914 at age 30.
No record has been found of her daughter Florence Hazel born 3 Jan 1907 but her 1 year old daughter Mildred Quelch was adopted by her Cousin, D. Lafayette 'Lafe' and his wife Mae Stout. She was listed as Mildred Stout on the Census.
D. Lafayette 'Lafe' was the son of Lafayette 'Pete' and Mary A. Grey Stout. Lafe and Mae had no children of their own to our knowledge.
The Cook County Death Records say that Opal Aline Quelch was buried in Mt. Sterling, Illinois. We believe she is buried in the Gilkey Family Plot # 96998405 with her grandparents James Banks #95403298 and Winnifred Kendrick #95403595 Gilkey and her parents, John C and Sarah 'Sallie' Elizabeth Stout. Her older brother Hazel Dell Stout #58709516 is also in this same area. Her eldest brother Ralph A. Stout #89172949 is buried in the Ripley Cemetery.
Recently we found that her daughter, Mildred Quelch (Stout) 1914-1933 is buried with her Uncle Eli Oscar Stouts' family in the Mounds Cemetery, Timewell Area, Pea Ridge Township, Brown County, IL under the name Mildred Stout Levengood.
Evidently she married sometime after the 1930 Census and died in 1933 after giving birth to a son, Richard D. Levengood who was shown as living at age 7 in 1940 with his adoptive grandparents D. Lafayette and Mae Stout in Union, Lewis Co, Missouri.
