Stout Family Index

Before I leave the Stout family, I wanted to gather them together in one place. The Stout family index is for the benefit of anyone who is researching the same family.

In this list, the numbers refer to the generation, with Richard and Penelope Stout, my 8th grandparents, being the first generation in North America and Vera Stout Anderson, my grandmother, being the last Stout. (Her brother did not have any children, so that was the end of the Stout line in my direct ancestors.

If I add others, I will link them later.

The indented numbers in the Stout family index are people in subsequent generations that I covered although they were not direct ancestors. Those individuals had stories that were interesting and shed light on the time they lived in.

The Stout Family

(1) Richard Stout and Penelope Stout (linked to the first of three stories.)

(2) David Stout and Rebecca Ashton

(3)Freegift Stout and his wife Mary Higgins.

(3) Obadiah Stout, brother of Freegift.

(5) Josiah Stout, son of Isaiah Stout

(6) Isaac Stout 1800 and his children.

(7) Isaiah Stout And his wife Emeline Cochran Stout.

(8) William Cochran Stout I also wrote about his wife, my Great-grandmother, Hattie Morgan Stout.

(8)There are also separate stories about my great-grandfather’s brothers and sisters, Thomas Stout, George Stout, John Franklin Stout, Elizabeth Stout Cunningham, Sarah Stout Scott, and Martha Stout Hayes and Mary Stout.

(9) Vera Stout Anderson I wrote several stories about my grandmother and her brother William Morgan Stout and sister Maude Stout Bartlett, which can be found with the search function.

The Stout Sisters in Pictures

I may actually have more pictures of the Stout sisters, “Aunt Mattie“, “Aunt Lib“, “Aunt Sade“, but if I do they are not identified (or wrongly identified) and I have not struggled through to try to pin  the down.

I have written about each of the Stout sisters (links above)–at least what I know about them. My mother called the oldest, Aunt Mattie (Martha Stout Hayes) “the prettiest one.” She said that the children (meaning my mother and brothers when they were little) and my grandmother Vera Stout Anderson liked “Aunt Lib” (Elizabeth Stout Cunningham) the best.  Sade (Sarah Stout Scott) and her husband Pastor Ed Scott (both in the Stout family picture below) had a daughter, Edna who corresponded with my mother for several years after my grandmother died in 1964, but unfortunately, those letters are lost. Edna lived in West Virginia, married a man named Jefford and had two sons who mother said owned a radio station.

Finding the Stout Family picture at the bottom of the page helps a lot because I’m certain of the identification of the two sisters in that picture since my Grandmother, who knew them well, wrote on the back of the photo.

So do you agree with the matchups of individual Stout sisters that I’ve done below?

Martha Stout

Studio photograph of one of the Stout sisters–Probably Mattie (Martha). Circa 1870

Stout daughters

Perhaps Sarah (Sade)and Elizabeth (Lib) Stout. Misidentified by Harriette Kaser as Myrle and Mary Cunningham, (Daughters of Elizabeth) but I believe dress style is too old for those girls. (Circa late 1870s)

Emeline Stout Family late 1890s

Stout Family late 1890s. Labeled by Vera Stout Anderson: “1st Row, Uncle Tom Stout, Grandma Stout and W. C. Stout (Dad) 2nd Row. Uncle Frank Stout, Aunt Lib Cunningham, Aunt Sade Scott and Uncle Edd Scott.

Stout Sisters

“Aunt Lib, Aunt Sade, Aunt Mattie,” labeled by Vera Anderson “Dad’s sisters” 1910s

Elizabeth (Lib) Stout Cunningham, Sarah (Sade) Stout Scott, Martha (Mattie) Stout Hayes.

Aunt Lib Stout can be seen sitting to the left of the porch post in this picture taken on the porch of Hattie Morgan Stout (to Lib’s left). One of Lib’s daughters is on the far right in back. 1923

I’m hoping that perhaps a relative who has more pictures and more information on the Stout girls will get in touch.  Fingers crossed!
