Q---Dear Ellie, Three points I'd like to ask. First. From your research is it your understanding that Austin (sife Sarah DAVIS) is son to Zebediah and wife Rachel (left WILL 1833 Warren CO TN)?
A----I don't have any parents for Austin; is the above couple his parents?
Q----Second. Do you have in your Stockstill data bank any additional information on Garland Stockstill, born bef 1829, wife Martha? I knew a lady named Pauline (now deceased), who established a scholarship to honor her Confederate ancestor Garland's son-in-law named Henry Clay DARSEY (married 1865 Mary Elizabeth STOCKSTILL, b. Nov 6, 1849 McMinnville, TN, d. July 26, 1893). Amongst Pauline's loose papers was the name and address of Norma PECK of Downey, CA.
A----I don't have any Garland Stockstill in my index, sorry.
Q---Serendipity, in that I knew Norma PECK. Norma was a descendant of Harvey STOCKSTILL (b. 1861) wife Ida Damrill. Norma was an avid family researcher.
A----My Harvy Stockstill was b 15 Nov 1836 m Nancy Elizabeth Goodnight (not proven ) son of Austin and Sarah,
A----Harvy Stockstill that was born 1861 parents are John N Stockstill and Julia Ann Hance this Harvy m Ida Damrell.
Q----Third. Just curious if you knew if possibly Garland Stockstill might have been related to Harvey Stockstill (1861)?
A----Maybe a cousin I don't know.
I hope this helps Judy, and I hope I answered your questions.
Ellie Warsaw MO.
Thank you kindly for all your hard work! Sincerely, Judy in CA
