RE: Stiles in Holcomb family tree Phillis....could you possibly tell me what name you have for my Grandpa 'Jake' (nickname) Stiles. I have him listed as James M. Stiles, I've heard others say his name was James Fulmer Stiles, yet another say his name was Jacob Stiles. I'm having a tussle with mom's death certificate and want them to 'get it right'. Hmmmmm While I wait to hear what your info shows (if any), I'll contact a few others. Grandpa's dad was John Wigfall Stiles and his mother was Nancy Louise (Stamey) Stiles. Thank Phillis! Rebecca in Murphy, NC
RE: Stiles in Holcomb family tree Oh No!! I hate that! "The line stops here." I just lost my little mama recently (Virginia (Stiles) Anderson. Check out her obit. Take care Phyllis. Kind Regards, Rebecca
RE: John R Stiles -vs- John Reid Stiles Phyllis, For greater insights into 'Stiles' go to: www.stilesfamilyofamerica.org You can email them and join their group, as well. I only recently stumbled upon their group and will be sending in my membership form. Great bunch of folks! Rebecca
I am neighbors with Barbara Lovell Gaston and the above are her grandparents. She is doing family history and was wondering if you by chance had any birth or death certificates on John and Georgia Couch, her grandparents.
Invite to multiFamily Tree on Ancestry.com Hey Phyllis, Thanks for that invite into the multiple family tree of Bell and 3-4 others, but I do not find any Stiles in the bunch. Perhaps some of the Stiles listed are still living..... therefore, the little boxes only say 'Private' w/the male or female silhouette pic. :-(
Stiles Family Tree Hey Phyllis, Feel free to email me at my private email, as I have trouble getting back to read messages in Find A Grave (I find it very busy and confusing). I'm at firstname.lastname@example.org
No, I've not signed up with Ancestry.com, as I'm attempting to ferret out as much basics in all tree lines until I can go no further. I can't spend as much time as I'd like to get my bang for the buck....Ancestry is expensive and time consuming.
I think you asked for some John Whigfall Stiles' children's names & burial sites. I can provide names and some sites....still checking them out. I at least know the states they are buried. I attended my own Grandpa's funeral back in 1979 up in Ohio (James M. 'Jake' Stiles) and can't recall the name of the cemetery. I'll have to ask my older brother, as he and my other older brother were pallbearers. Grandpa was one heck of a guy! I loved him so much! Rebecca
I just learned about you, Great Uncle John R. Stiles by digging around in Ancesry.com I never knew my dear Grandfather lost a baby brother! Anyone reading this: Rebecca Jean Anderson, Granddaughter of James "Jake" M. Stiles born 1893 Cherokee Cty, NC & died 1979 Summit, Ohio. My mother is: Virginia Anderson born in Struthers, Ohio. - Rebecca Jean Anderson Added: Sep. 1, 2014
Phyllis, John R Stiles (15Sep1894-31Aug1895) and Rev John Reid Stiles (1843-18??) are two separate individuals. My research shows me that the good Rev John Reid Stiles was the great grandfather of the baby John R. Stiles that died 31Aug1895 & is buried in the Tomatla Cemetary - Memorial# 45383007 The baby was my maternal grandfather's little brother.
My research also tells me that one of John Reid Stiles & Rebecca Stamey Stiles' male children named John W. Stiles was: John Whigfall Stiles (11Jun1866-25Dec1945). Rebecca's grave is here on the outskirts of Murphy, NC at the Friendship Baptist Church Cemetary. Memorial #8346580 That is Rebecca's headstone marker, as I see it fairly often when visiting other family members buried there & have taken her flowers, as she helped raise my grandpa Jake Stiles after his mother passed on and his daddy, John Whigfall remarried a young Indian girl 40 yrs his junior....Hollie Lillie Anne Loundermilk. You can find Hollie Stiles' name on the Baker Registry that was completed in 1924 by the federal government. This is a list of names who's Indian families were displaced (isn't that a nice word for what was done to them) off their lands and who is allotted compensations through their direct lineage.
As a matter-of-fact, Hollie & John Whigfall Stiles' last remaining living child passed away in 2009. Her name was Viola E? Stiles Shields. She was 91 yo. You can find her obit and movie pictorial on the web at Townsend Rose Funeral Home here in Murphy, NC (google it) There are quite a few pictures but w/o names. A few of the pictures might be of her daddy, my great grandpa...not certain.
If you learn any more, I'd be grateful for your input.
Kind Regards, Rebecca J. (Stiles-Rogers) Anderson Murphy, NC
James M. Couch (20915734) Do you know anything more about James M. Couch? Are you related to him? I have a James M. Couch in my lineage and am trying to locate him. Any information you may be able to provide would most certainly be of help. Thanks in advance for any assistance you may be willing to provide. God bless you and yours, Benae Williams Hogan
