George Stout of Athens Ohio
Hi Lila, I am sorry but Charles Stout,son of George and Eliza Stout is not your Charles of Ripton, Illinois. George's son Charles was born on 4/24/1827. His 1st wife was Ellen Gregory,2nd wife was Louise Wiley. He had 2 daughters: Addie and Mary Belle. He is buried in Orange Cemetery in Athens County and someone has posted his gravestone on his site. Sorry but good luck in your search!

Elijah Stout
I live on the farm where the Stout Cemetery is located. Actually, it is approx. 75-100 ft from the house (which I believe our house was built in the early 80's, and the gravel road is long gone). Although time has taken it's toll on the cemetery, the names and dates on the 6 stones are still very clear and readable. Elijah Stout was born August 1, 1771 and died July 9, 1846 at the age of 74. His wife, Elizabeth, is also buried in this cemetery. Elizabeth (Turnham) Stout was born March 24, 1773 and died July 18, 1833. Is it possible that Nancy could have been his 2nd wife (since he outlived Elizabeth by 13 yr)? Also buried in the cemetery:
*their son, William M. 1812-1855 (43 yr old)
*William's wife, Emily 1806-1822 (16 yr old)
*their son David's wife, Eliza Ann 1815-1838 (23 yr old)...However, David is not buried here.
*infant daughter of C.T. & M.A., Susan E. died June 12, 1840 (5 months old)...I'm not sure who C.T. & M.A. are??
I've lived on this farm for 3 yrs, but just this past week I became interested in trying to uncover the history of this farm and the Stout family (which is how I found this site and saw your note). As soon as the weather permits, I will take some photos. I would appreciate any info on the Stout family that lived here, if anyone has anything to share. Recommended sites would be greatly appreciated too. This is all new to me. Thanks.

Please send me an edit from the page you are looking at because I have no idea where to start looking for this person.

Elijah Stout
In the Cemeteries of Shelby County Kentucky book published in the late 1970's, ther1e is a listing for Elijah Stout. At that time a slab type marker was found for him. The inscription was as follows:

In memory of/Elijah Stout was born August the 1st 1771 died July the 9th 1846 Aged 74 years 11 months & 9 days. This monument is a tribute of respect to the many Christian virtues Possessed by him who reposes beneath. Paid by his children. This is a slab marker measuring approximately 30" by 72".

This cemetery is in a pretty out of the way place and I am not sure that I could ever visit. If I do I will try to get picture for you.
