Can anyone help me? I believe that I go back to John Stofle, born about 1831 in NC, but living in Sevier Co., TN in 1870 and 1880. I believe that I descend from his son James W., who went to Maury County, TN. But I'm not sure. There seems to be two families, with sons of the same names and ages. Our branch of the family (my great-grandfather Thomas William Stofel) came to Oklahoma about 1904 and we know little of the Tennessee family history.
