Re: Annie Lauire Stickley m. John W Hodson, in Virginia
You request help for Stickley/Hodson line of your family tree. Your Stickley conection is well documented on many genealogies on the internet. Your various grandparents shown in mine are Charles M. Stickley & Mary Alberta Prangle, Samuel Stickley & Mary Ann Showalter, David Stickley & Mary Ann Harmon, Bentz (Benjamin) Stickley & Ann Stover, and your patriarches, Hans Stockli &Barbara Morgan.
David's home is a landmark one.I have a beautiful picture of it taken in the 1940s. Anna Laura Stickley's husband is John Hodson, as you reported.Ancestry.com has his genealogy.Hans was born in Switzerland, but known by many in Virginia as John Stickley. His brother Christian lived in VA.The Stockli surname is spelled variously in the United States.Leopold Stickley family is not related to us, its son Gustaf worked at Auburn Prison in NY.The early John Sticleys were anibaptista. Brother Menno references are to be found in Abraham Stickley's papers. He lived in Hampshire County, VA, later WV.
