Since my last correspondence of almost one year on July 12, 2012 I have found
research on CHARLES STOUT and his family from Ancestry.
As we stated before he was not closely related to Francis Marion Stout - a

April 1827- died Ripley, Brown County in 1900 - Father George Stout

Four Children as follows:
Arthur C. Stout 1854-1916 married Eva Alice Donahower
1858-1919 in 1876 in Brown County - NOTE: Eva
Alice was the daughter of MARY J. STOUT DONAHOWER. Mary J.
was a younger sister of Francis Marion Stout making Eva Alice his niece.
They were still living in Brown County in 1900, but had moved to Washington,
Monroe Co, Missouri by the 1910 Census. They later moved to Clinton,
Dewitt County. where they died and are buried in Woodlawn Cemetery there.
Mary C. Stout 1855-1905 married Charles O Glenn 1855-1939 in
Brown County and they moved to Kearney County, Nebraska where they lived and
died and are buried.
* John Martin 'Coon' Stout 1858-1889 was a deaf-mute caused
by scarlett fever when young. He went to the Jacksonville School for the
Deaf in Jacksonville where he is shown on a special census at age 17 in
1875. He met his wife, Emma Mitchell there as she was also deaf.
They married in 1889 (marriage license). He was well known in the Brown
County area as a drawing and watercolor artist of portraits. He also was
a trick bicycle rider. He is mentioned in the "History of Brown and
Schuyler Counties." He died while riding his bicycle from Ripley to
Mt. Sterling thought to have had a brain aneurysm. His wife was born in
the Clinton County area in 1868. It is not known what she did after his
death. They had only been married 6 months. He was 30 years old.
* Mae Della Stout 1866-1903 married John Frederick Hull
1866-1900 in Brown County in 1892. They lived in Shawnee County, Kansas
for awhile, then are shown as living in Chicago, Cook County in 1903.
Are all buried in Ripley Cemetery, Brown County, Illinois
Tracing the Stout lineage back to the 1600's. Charles and
Francis Marion's connection was thru two direct ancestors.
Richard 1615-1705 and Penelope Van Princis Stout 1622-1732. Had
10 children of which son David was one. Richard came to
America from England and the family settled in what is now New Jersey in
David 1667-1732 and Rebecca Ashton Stout 1673-1725 Had 8
children- Their sons James and Joseph became the second connections to Charles
and Francis Marion Stout.
Their son James 1694-1727 Married Catherine Simpson 1692-1749 was the
Direct Ancestor of Francis Marion Stout - His 4th Great Grandparents
Their son Joseph 1698-1770 Married Martha Reeder 1714-1758 was the
Direct Ancestor of Charles Stout - His 4th Great Grandparents
This made them distant cousins.
Probably the reason Charles ended up in Brown County was due to all the
Pottery Factories there at the time and his son Arthur C met and married Eva
Alice Donahower, daughter of Mary J Stout Donahower, the sister of Francis
We will never know and must leave it to the ages. Use this information
as you see fit.
