Hugh A. Stackhouse
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Mar. 17, 1804
Leicestershire, England
Death: Apr. 15, 1871
Orange County
Indiana, USA

Son of Hugh Stackhouse and Mary Berrington.

An article about daughter Martha in Ames Chapel Methodist, 1879-1979 reported "Her father was born in England, in the town of Liester, March 3, 1804, and came to America as a young child. He was christened July 6, 1813 in the Methodist Church at Orangeville. He died April 15, 1871, and is buried in a private cemetery on Carl Gromer's farm at Orangeville. He married Mourning Dalton on February 14, 1854. She was born in the year of 1831 and died in the year of 1897." Family stories say that he came from England to America in an open sailboat, but this is very unlikely.

Married to Sarah Row on 1/2/1842 in Orange County, IN.

Married to Mourning Dalton on 2/14/1854 in Orange County, IN.

The Lost River DAR transcription of Higgins cemetery from August 12, 1937 shows "Stackhouse, Hugh b. Leicester, England 179? d. about 1870. His wife Jenkins, d. several years prior to Hugh. Graves had markers". James E. Lane visited the cemetery in 1988 and found a grave stone for Hugh Stackhouse that reported him to be "67 Yrs. 28 Ds." old when he died (the stone was badly deteriorated, the days could have been 26). Some researchers believe this is Hugh Sr. The age fits either Hugh Sr. or Hugh Jr., but the birth/death dates are much closer to Hugh Jr. than Hugh Sr. Also, the article on Martha Stackhouse in Ames Chapel Methodist, 1879-1979 states that Hugh Jr. was buried in a private cemetery on Carl Gromer's farm at Orangeville, which would have to be the Higgins Cemetery. Therefore, this is likely the grave of Hugh Jr., meaning that the DAR reference to wife Jenkins probably refers to Sarah Rowe.
