We are both descended from Jacob Stampley (Stauffley) who was born in Zurich, Switzerland, 9 Aug 1700. Our records show that he had two sons: John born in Switzerland about 1750 and Jacob born in Switzerland before 1760. You are apparently descended through Jacob and his second wife, Caroline Corbit, and then through their third son Samuel Phadia Stampley who was the father of Thadius Samuel, your 2nd great grandfather. Is this information correct?
I am also descended from Jacob Stampley (Stauffley) through the other son John who married Martha (Phebe) Curtis in 1775 in Craven Co., North Carolina. In the autumn of 1780, the Curtis, Courtney, Stampley, Ogden and Perkins families migrated to the Natchez area settling along the Coles Creek on the east side of the Mississippi River, then known as the Natchez District, Florida Territory, which later became Jefferson Co., Mississippi.
John & Martha had 11 children, all born at the settlement along Coles Creek. I am descended through the 10th child, Richard Stampley who married Abigail Smith. The couple migrated north to Yazoo Co. soon after their marriage in 1827 because their first child was born in 1828 in their area of settlement in Yazoo Co. They had 9 children, all born in the vicinity of Anding & Mechanicsburg, Yazoo Co., Mississippi. Their third child, Martha Malvina Stampley, was my great grandmother. She married my great grandfather, William C. Herrin in 1868. Civil War records (film 1488358) show he enlisted with the 29th Inf, Co. B on 25 Mar 1862 and was captured on Look Out Mt. 24 Nov 1863. He served the rest of the war in prison at Rock Island, Ill. Also, six of Martha’s seven brothers served in the Civil War.
I have in my possession considerable information on John & Martha Curtis Stampley and their descendents in Yazoo Co. I’m wondering if you have included information on this Stampley line in your book on the Civil War? I would be happy to share this information with you. My great grandmother, Martha Malvina Stampley Herrin wrote some interesting things about her family experiences during the Civil War.
