There is a picture of Samuel Benton Stallard in the Stallard book. I am sure that some libraries have this "Stallard Connection" book, as it is in Library of Congress-(Catalogue Card # 81-82933). It was printed by Graphic Communications Corp., Lawrenceville, Ga., 30245.
Hope this will get you started into more information on your family (and mine). I am descended from S. B.'s brother Robert William (Preacher Willy) Stallard. I have ancestry back to very eary times. I will be glad to assist you in any way that I can. Contact me at: BPOWELL847@AOL.COM There is a Stallard reunion at Flatwoods Freewill Baptist Church at Flatwoods, Va. ( 6 miles S. of Coeburn, Va. on Aug 3. 2002. If interested, let me know and I will forward more information.
