Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a member of Daughters of the American Revolution, the Jamestowne Society, Descendants of the Signers of the Declaration of Independence, the National Huguenot Society, and the Colonial Dames of the 17th Century. I just love researching family histories. I taught Jr. High English in the public schools for fourteen years. I was an Elementary Counselor and a librarian for fifteen years.

I would love your contributions to the pages I've added. I especially want pictures of the people I have listed here. I am taking pictures of all the tombstones in my area in order to preserve family histories for future generations, especially those who wish to join DAR and other societies. I want to honor these people and truly wish for them to be "Gone but Not Forgotten." I want to create a page for each person with pictures and biographical information. My DAR webpage is at

125364815 Mary Ann Codd Stout
This is my documentation of the spelling St. Ledger vs. Leger. Nathan Stout was in the peer generation of Mary Ann. His book was published in 1823 at the age of 75 y/o. What is your data for the spelling? Alternate spellings create problems as you well know and will adapt my work with confirmation/use of your input.


"James married a woman in Maryland who possessed an Honorary title, by whom he had one son named St. Ledger Codd Stout." (Stout, Nathan, p. 7) "She was called the Lady of the Chesapeake." Source: Five Hundred First Families of America, p. 23 as noted in Find A Grave Memorials 125364815)
"Nancy Ann Stout, the daughter of St. Ledger Codd Stout, was a direct
descendant, in the royal line of England, of Prince Lionel of Antworth, son of King Edward III. The seventh descendant in line from Prince Lionel was Sir Anthony St. Ledger who came to America in 1609 and was a personal friend of Sir Walter Raleigh. Sir Anthony became a member of the Virginia House of Burgesses. Later, he returned
to England and became the Lord Mayor of London. Mary Ann Ledger Codd, of the fourth generation following Sir Anthony, was the first of her family to remain in America. In 1730, Mary Ann married James Stout, the great grandson of Richard and Penelope through Jonathan and his son Colonel Joseph. Nancy Ann Stout was the granddaughter of James and Mary Ann St. Ledger Codd Stout who settled in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia." (Stout, Russell Ray, p. 13)

RE: Hammett
They are my family. It's the least I can do. If you are okay with the transfers I will be happy to accept.

Thanks for your contributions.

Re: Andrew Gladden
Linda, thank you for sending me the message about Andrew being the first husband of Martha Weir. I knew this but failed to add it to her memorial! I've linked him to her so their children will be linked as well. Do you happen to have any portraits of this family? Thank you again for bringing this to my attention and should you find other things that need added or corrected, please don't hesitate to let me know!

Robert Letcher Harris
Hello, I was curious if you would be so kind as to send me larger versions of the two photos on Robert Letcher Harris of Dent Co. Mo. Findagrave# 14789787, (Robert's picture and the family gathering.) I would credit you if I could peruse them for a future local history book. I appreciate it, Garrett Gabel

Is the family gathering photo identified??
