The following information is taken from a letter I received four years ago
from Mary Lou Stufflebeam (Mrs. Richard Stufflebeam), then a long-time
resident of Fox River Twp., Davis County, Iowa.
Jacob and Elizabeth Keziah Stufflebeam.

The family removed from Ohio to Burlington, Ia., and then to Davis Co., Ia.,
Children of Jacob and Elizabeth Keziah:

Hopkins;, b. 11/13/1827; d. 5/16/1926. Martin Henry Stufflebeam was listed
as "Henry" in the 1850 & 1860 Census returns for Davis Co., Ia. [See below

I am looking for information about the following people from Davis County.
I appreciate any help I can get to find relatives, personal information,
etc. If anyone else is researching this line, I have a lot of information
about ancestors that I would be happy to share.
Joseph Sloan b. abt.1823, Meigs Cty, Ohio, d. aft. 1870,
Lick Creek Twnship. m. Phebe Parkes on12/28/1847
Athens Co., Ohio she was born abt. 1830 in Ohio and
d. aft. 1870 in Lick Creek Twnship
Albert Sloan b. 4/16/1850 in Meigs Cty, OH, d. aft. 1908
Lick Creek Twnship; m. Margaret Jones in 1873 in Iowa
She was b.8/9/1846 in Bushnell, IL, d. 3/9/1926 in Chicago.
Charles Wesley Sloan b. March 1884, Fish Creek Twnship
d. 1936, Walker, MN. m. Edna Viola Burdick who was
b. 1884 in Goodwin, S.D., d. 2/16/1962 in Moose Lake, MN
Don, if you find that letter, can you look for another Bryson Stufflebeam,
b. 1869, married Lucinda Della McFarling in 1893. He may have been Bryson
Greenbury Stufflebeam. His parents were Martin Henry Stufflebeams b. Oh 1831
and Nancy Jane Childress,b. 13 Nov 1827 Knox Co, TN. This Bryson falls
right in the middle of the the 1841 and the 1882 William Bryson. Your
letter may help both Nancy John and myself! Thanks for looking. Dar at
Nancy John, I have a possible lead.
Jacob Stufflebeam, b. 1794
m. Keziah (?), b. 1803
Elias, b. 1828
Henry, b. 1831
Mary F. , b. 1833
m. John B. Paris, Jr., b. 1821
Vinson, b. 1837
Bryson, b. 1841
Isaac, b. 1845
Jane, b. 1847
My guess is that the Bryson (b. 1841) could be the father of your William
Bryson Stufflebeam (b. 1882) -- or else an Uncle.
I am related to Ransom H. Wooden who married a Paris girl (a sister to John
B. Paris, Jr) in Missouri and then removed to Davis County, Fox River Twp.,
Iowa, in 1851 and lived there until about 1872. They were neighbors with the
Stufflebeam family in that latter location. There is today a Stufflebeam
still living on their original site. I corresponded with her a number of
years ago. I will look for her letter -- in it, as I recall, she spelled out
the Stufflebeams as far back as she knew it (she married into that family,
but kept quite good records). I hope I can find it.
Does anyone know of the existence of a photo of the Fox River Baptist
church which was located at the cemetery near (I think a mile or two
north) of West Grove where the Hockersmiths and Coons are buried? also
looking for a photo of Oak Hill Baptist church, near Mark.
