I'm looking for the parents/ancestors of William D Stults, b. 6/6/1814 in Adair Co., KY and died 9/6/1855 in Macoupin Co., IL. His wife was Nancy Jane Gayhart, born 1816 in KY. They were married around 1834 in Adair Co. One of their sons, Richard Thomas, was my great grandfather. I'm interested in anything I can get, especially pre- William D. I know a group of Stults brothers supposedly came over from Germany, possibly Hesse, maybe in the late 17th century, but I want details....Thanks! I haven't found anything on Nancy Jane's family - so I'll take that too.

Hi, Cheryl.

Yes, Richard Thomas Stults was Otto's father. I just realized I have an error in my original message: R.T. was my great-great grandfather. Otto was my great-grandfather. Otto's son, Irving, known as "Hiney" was my grandfather, who died around 1955, I think. My dad was his son, Bob Stults. He died in 1991. That makes William D. our great-great-great grandfather! And James, my great-uncle.

Otto married Orra B. Straight and they lived in Palmyra, Illinois. Off the top of my head, their kids were Harold (Bub), Olin (Red), Gertrude (Gert), Hiney, and Frances (Pie). Aunt Pie is living in Florida. Everyone else has passed. Orra was the daughter of Stephen B. Straight. I think his wife was Martha Hollingsworth. Maybe not - I know she's in there someplace!

Hiney married Naomi Buck, my grandma, who died in 2000. In addition to my dad, they had Richard, who died in 1992, I think and Kenny (Oscar) who lives in Palmyra.

I currently live in Springfield, Illinois. Where are you and your family from?

Hi Cindy
Thank you for the information. I am having alot of difficulty tracing the Stults side of the family.
My great great grandfather was James Stults. He was born September 18,1855. He married Virginia Isabelle Hinckle on May 18,1877. He died March 12,1896 in Macoupin County. He is buried in the Asbury Cemetary. James and Belle had 4 children:
Ella Berdella, who was my great grandmother. She was born February 14,1877. She married Algy Dean VanBebber on August 18,1896. She died November 6,1969.

Julia Elizabeth, who was born August 28,1882. She married Frank Waddell.

George E., who was born October 27,1880 and died August 5,1883.

Walter E., who was born August 30,1890 and died January 6,1955. He was married twice I think. His first wife was Nettie and his second wife was Louise.

My great grandparents had 7 children:
Vena Viola 1897-1984
Verner Vain, which was my grandfather 1899-1988
Junie May 1901-1994
Eunice Mamie 1904-1981
Lucille Violet 1911-1994
Ivan Eugene 1906-1962
Denzel Dean 1909-1910

I live in Nortonville, which is about 9 miles Northwest of Scottville.
Did Otto have a brother named George?
