Re: Stout's
David, I am sending you an e-mail to your e-mail address so check your Junk mail if it doesn't come through. I can type a lot faster on my PC then going through my Smart Phone. I can also send you some attachments showing the connection and other information.

I have the red Brown County Cemetery book, and also the red History of Brown County. I also have the new History Book published by the Versailes Historical Society in which I submitted several historical articles on Stout. You could contact them for a copy of that book. It is very interesting.

I checked the book and have some interesting information that I will E-mail you.

RE: Lafayette Stout
I have a really hard time believing that Francis Marion Stout would not have mentioned that his Grandfather who raised him would not have mentioned in both of his published bios as being brought to Illinois for burial. He firmly stated that he died in Owen County, KY. Also why would he have buried him in Mounds Cemetery??? None of the other Stout's were buried there that early.
Especially when FM had give part of the land to the Ripley Cemetery and all of his young children, including Lutie and the young chlldren from Nancy Catherine are all buried in Ripley?
I believe Eli died probably close to the time that FM migrated to Illinois from Owen County. His son Benjamin D. also went to Illinois. Eli's WIDOW is shown on the Owens County, KY 1850 Census as from NJ and living with the youngest son Lafayette (unmarried) and Mary J the granddaughter who left Ky shortly thereafter and migrated to Illinois where she married F.Ausustus R.Donahower.

I asked the person who originally had that Memorial and she said she had no idea how it got into Mounds unless someone in Eli Oscar's family had put it there. When I checked some of the cemetery records for Mounds, he wasn't mentioned. Only Eli Oscar who they had mistakenly called Eli Otis until I pulled up Eli Oscar's Registration to the Military which plainly shows Oscar (not Otis). Do you have any source that says Eli's middle name was Otis? I understand that someone at the Timewell Bank was in charge of the burial records for Mounds.

My thought is that because of the Otis and Oscar mistake that someone thought there was another unmarked grave. My understanding is that their is only one tombstone there for Oscar and no other.

Lafayette Stout
Received your note about Francis Marion Stout 1823-1907 and Margaret 'Margenia' Alexander Stout 1829-1851.
They had two children: Luticia Ann 'Lutie' 1847-1850 (died of Cholera) and your 3rd Great Grandfather Lafayette aka Pete Stout 1851-about 1830. I have never found an exact date. Lutie is buried in the Ripley Cemetery and believe Lafayette 'Pete' and your 3rd great grandmother Mary A. Grey 1850=1927 are buried in Mt. Sterling City Cemetery.
Lafayette and Mary had 4 boys and 2 girls.
Francis 'Frank' Marion 1875-1921 (I found no record of a marriage). He registered in 1918 for WW I and a family record said he died in Somme, Picardie, France. However his death record says he died when he was 43 in Mt. Sterling. I assume he was not your 2nd Great Grandfather.
Eli 'Oscar' 1876-1954 buried in Mounds Cemetery, Timewell married Cora M Mills 1879-1950.

I only know of two sons, Milburn Mills 1899-1969 and Frank Lafayette 1908-1961 that had children . Was either of these your Grandfather? Of the other two I don't think William Grant 1878-1898 married?
D. Lafayette 'Lafe' 1880-1958 married May I Stout 1887-1940 had no children of their own - They adopted Lafe's cousin's (Opal Stout Quelch's) small daughter Mildred W. Quelch and gave her the name Stout. Opal was a younger sister of my grandfather, Ralph Augustus Stout, son of John Charles Fremont Stout, the 2nd son of the first Francis Marion Stout by his second wife Nancy Catherine Alexander (sister of his first wife).

I also have a picture of a younger Francis Marion Stout, our 3rd Great Grandfather sent to me by Donna Stout, 3rd Great Granddaughter of James Madison Stout and the 3rd son by Nancy Catherine

I would really like to have some pictures of the first Lafayette 'Pete' or any other family members.

By the way, he was named after his father's uncle Lafayette Stout, and evidently he named Eli Oscar after his Great Grandfather Eli Stout 1771-abt 1845 born in New Jersey and settled in Kentucky. His Grandparents, son of Eli was named Isaac 1800-1833 married Lydia Baxter in Kentucky and they both died in the cholera epidemic within days of each other leaving 4 children under the age of 10. Our Francis Marion 1823-1907 was the oldest. They were raised by their grandfather Eli in KY.

Thank you so much for the pictures of my family members at Macomb, IL. I was only able to meet one of the 4, Helen Brown. She was a great lady. Maybe I can visit the cemetery. I bring my Dad to Macomb for the Rock and Gem show at WIU in March. We live about two hours away in MO. Thanks again.
