Kathleen,

 

Here is the information you requested:

 

Question #1: The Julia listed in the burial index without a last name d. 1856, age 1 year, 3 months. So she cannot be your Julia Brooks Stout.. In addition, neither Julia nor Benjamin are listed in the burials of Brown County. This might suggest that they moved out of the county before their deaths or were buried in a nearby county. Benjamin and Julia are there in 1870 Census:

!870 Census of brown county, Illinois, Mt Sterling Twp

33/33

Benjamin Stout 60 m tailor Kentucky

Julia Stout 49 f Kentucky

Sarah Stout 21 f Illinois

Barton Stout 28 m works in tobacco manufacturing Illinois

 

Benjamin shows up in the 1880 census with Barton:

1880 Brown Co., IL Census

Village of Mt. Sterling

This confirms that Julia died before 1880, but because she does not appear in the burial records, either she is buried in another county or her burial record has been lost. Same basic logic applies to Benjamin.

 

Question #2: William Brooks

There is no burial record for William. However, a Lovona or Lavena wife of W. F or W. P. Brooks, b. 1813, d. 1 Jan ? is found in the Cleaves Cemetery burial records in Lee Twp. This may be Julia’s mother. The burial for William may have been lost or he may appear buried with Julia and Benjamin, wherever they may be found. The above burial is in Cemeteries of Brown County, Illinois, pp. 96-98.

 

Hope this helps a little.

Sincerely,

Ken Huffman

Hi Ken & Laurie,

I haven't heard back from you regarding the Brooks/Stout obituary information I sent you several weeks ago and I was wondering if you ever received it?

 

If not be sure and let me know and I'll try to send it again.

 

If you did receive it I was still very curious to see if you thought the "Julia" listed in the Mt. Sterling graveyard, with out a last name, might just be Julia Brooks Stout (wife of Benjamin D. Stout)? 

 

I was also wondering if you were able to find out any information on Julia's father, William Brooks?

 

The 1860 Mt. Sterling, Brown Co. IL census shows

William Brooks (b. PA. age 83) living with Benjamin & Julia Stout.

 

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Thanks again for all your help!

Kathleen
