Dear Kathleen,

 

The obituaries came through just fine this time. Thank you for your assistance and your generous contribution to the website. The Lusk obituaries would also be welcome. They might also be helpful to the Schuyler website, since the family lived there as well. You could send them yourself, or we could forward them on to the coordinator.

 

Have you checked with the Schuyler site for more information on the Stouts there? Many Brown and Schuyler families moved back and forth across the river. I know of several families who lived in Brown County but were all buried in Schuyler County. Since the two counties were once one, that was not uncommon. So I do suggest you check with their county website. We sent their coordinator several books of cemetery listings for Schuyler County a couple of years ago, and she may still have them.

 

If you have any further questions (and would like us to forward the Lusk obituaries to Schuyler), just let us know.

 

Best wishes,

 

Laurie Huffman

(for Ken Huffman)

Hi Ken & Laurie,

Thanks for writing back! I'm sorry my first attempt at sending you this information failed.

 

Attached are the obituaries for:

Benjamin D. Stout (who I believe died on 16 January 1893)

&

Julia (Brooks) Stout (who I believe died on either 27or 28 Feb. 1875) 

 

Benjamin Stout & Julia Brooks were married:

Schuyler Co. on 11 Aug 1836. 

 

I found these obituaries recently when I was given the family Bible! 

 

Please be sure and let me know if you get this email.....and I would really love to know what your thoughts are regarding the Stout Family and where you think they might be buried. 

 

Julia Brooks Stout was Sarah Brooks Lusk's younger sister.  Sarah was my ggg grandmother.  Sarah and her husband Levi Lusk moved left Rushville, Illinois and moved to Mt. Sterling in 1866.

 

I'm not sure what all you have but If you are interested I also have the obituaries for both:

Levi Lusk, who died 25 or 26 July 1877

&

Sarah Brooks Lusk, who died 10 March 1894, at the age of 93! 

 

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Kathleen

Kathleen,

It appears that we did not receive the Brooks/Stout obituary information. Could you please send it again?

 

I will work on the two questions as well. I apologize for the inconvenience. Sometimes, even when we want to be near perfect, we fall short.

 

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
