Introduction to the parents and siblings of WILLIAM STAMPER 1839-1906

PARENTS:  James W. "John" and Sarah(Stamper) Stamper

JAMES W. STAMPER, also know as John Stamper and Pewter John Stamper 1st 
James W. Stamper, father of William Stamper, would have been born about
1799 or 1800, according to an Ashland Independent Newspaper dated  June
22, 1882, that lists John's death at age 83, at the home of his
son-in-law and daughter, Ezekiel and Hannah, (Stamper) McGlone, Buffalo
Valley, Carter County, Kentucky.  He was born possibly in Ashe County or
Cherokee County, North Carolina.  He was better known as John Stamper the
name he married under June 8, 1820, Floyd County, Kentucky, to  Sarah
"Sallie" Stamper, reportedly his first cousin.  A farmer, John and Sarah
were married by a Methodist Episcopal Church Minister.  This marriage
record is found in Record Book 1, page 127 of the Floyd County Clerk's
office, Floyd County, Kentucky.  

Prior to locating in Kentucky, John's history is sketchy and questionable
as many documented facts from various sources are in conflict.  For
example it has been stated in print that John was born in either
February, September or December, 1800, in Ashe, Swain or Cherokee County,
N.C.  John relocated from North Carolina to Carter County, Kentucky,
sometime prior to June 1820, the year he married.  

John and Sarah, both age 50, are listed in the 1850 Carter County,
Kentucky Census with six of their children and in the 1860 census, age
60, with three of their children.   John, age 71 and Sarah, age 70 were
living with their son, William Stamper, in the 1870 Carter County,
Kentucky Census.   Little is known about his history prior to Kentucky
records. John is buried  in the Bethel Cemetery, Olive Hill, Carter
County, Kentucky, but his monument is very difficult to read. Sources:
1850 & 1870 Census, Marriage Record, cemetery listing, monument, June 22,
1882 Ashland Independent article and records on their children  
		
John's  parents remain in question.  Some genealogy in print carry him as
the son of a Cherokee Indian and a Reeves women, either an Agnes Reeves
or her sister, depending on which Stamper relativeis speaking.  Other
genealogy carry his parents as Richard and Martha Patsy (Carter) Stamper
as is carried by Jenny Cecil Kiser who lists John's birth as July 10,
1799, North Carolina. Jenny's lineage on John is listed below.

John Stamper( Pewter John) 8th /Richard Stamper 7th /Joel Stamper 6th
/Jonathan Brooks Stamper Sr. 5th / Virginia Powell Stamper 4th /John
Stamper 3rd /William Stamper 2nd /John Stamper 1st  





Further support for Richard Stamper being his father was listed in an
1860 Lewis County Kentucky Census of James W.'s  son, George Washington
Stamper.  This document lists additional information stating George was
the grandson of Richard and Martha Carter Stamper. This writer hold's no
documentation prior to John (Pewter John) Stamper but has copies of other
genealogies that also lists Richard Stamper as John's father, in addition
to other records that reference John as half- Cherokee Indian.  This
writer leaves the judgment to the reader.

In a visit to the home of Cleo Ruthard Woodrow Stamper by Betty Stamper
Wellman and Gladys Stamper Meyers, Cleo Ruthard said John's  legal birth
name was James W. Stamper  and  James himself  took the name "John" aka
"Pewter John Reeves Stamper".  He also stated that  John was half -
Cherokee Indian and stated that John also used aliases of Reeves, Reed
and Stillwell, Both Betty and Gladys are granddaughters of this William
Stamper. Additionally, a notarized affidavit by Vernon J. Mead in
December 1983, also shows John as a son of a Cherokee Indian.  Cleo
Ruthard's handwritten records lists two sons were born of the James W.
Stamper and Sarah Moore union. They were William Thomas Moore Stamper and
James Stamper.  William Thomas married Emily Polly and had 12 children. 
James, who was born November 1799, and died May 1874, later called
himself John and married Sarah Unknown, born  January 5, 1799, and died
November 30, 1876. 

A notarized December 1983 statement by Vernon J. Mead states that James
W. "John" Stamper was the son of a Cherokee Indian Chief.  Vernon is a
direct descendant of Sylvania (Stamper) Fultz, the daughter of James W. "
John" Stamper. 

Ancestors and Descendants by James Harley Hinton and Martha Alice Adams
carry  James W. "John" Stamper as a Cherokee Indian.  James W. "John"
Stamper is also referenced as part Cherokee Indian in article titled  "
Related Family"  by Herbert Lee Hinton.  

SARAH STAMPER "Sarah Sallie" was born November 15, 1799, Kentucky,
daughter of  William Stamper "Tater Bill"and Agnes Emily Polly "Millie". 
 Sarah's father gave written permission for her to marry John Stamper. 
Sarah died November 30,1874, Carter County, Kentucky.  She is buried
Bethel Cemetery, Olive Hill, Carter County, Kentucky, and her monument is
also unreadable. The publication "Pioneer Families Of Lewis County
Kentucky Volume II" lists Sarah's death as December 30, 1874.  Sarah
Sallie Stamper's  line has been documented as follows: Sarah Sallie
Stamper 6th/William Stamper 5th/James W. Stamper 4th/Jonathan Stamper
3rd/Powell Stamper 2nd/John Stamper1st

documentation is held at this time to support him as a child of this
union.  In the future, each sibling will be documented as fully as
possible in their own individual family record.









 





                                    WILLIAM STAMPER AND DESCENDANTS

WILLIAM STAMPER 2nd/James W. "John" Stamper 1s t  
William Stamper "Bill"  was born September 11, 1839, Olive Hill, Carter
County, Kentucky, the son of James W. Stamper aka "John" and "Pewter
John"and  Sarah Sallie (Stamper) Stamper.  Reportedly, his parents, John
and Sarah, were first cousins , William's ancestors came from N.C. and
Virginia. The 1850 and 1860 Carter County, Kentucky Census lists William
at age 11 and 20.  He was a farmer and a horseback mailman who married
five times.  At age 21, he married the first time  to Nancy Eveline
Lawson April 29, 1860, Carter County, Kentucky.  Only one daughter was
born to this union of short duration due to mother's early death. 
Sources: 1850 and 1860 Carter County, Kentucky Census, Marriage
Certificate, Belle Kiser's Death, Inez (Gilliam) Webb Cynthia Katheryn
(Stamper) Jacobs Shaffer's Bible records 

Nancy Eveline Lawson was born August 4, 1844, Morgan County, Kentucky. 
Nancy was age 18 and living in Carter County, Kentucky, when she married
William.  Death claimed Nancy December 25, 1861, Carter County, Kentucky,
leaving a young daughter behind.  Nancy is buried in Olive Hill's Bethel
Cemetery, Carter County, Kentucky..  The family monument lists her as
Nancy E. wife of William and also mother of Malinda.   Sources: Marriage
Certificate, family monument & 1996 Bethel Cemetery listing.

CHILD OF WILLIAM & NANCY EVELINE (LAWSON) STAMPER. 
CAROLINE MALINDA or MALINDA CAROLINE STAMPER based on the following birth
and death information and the mother's death date.  The child was listed
in the 1861-1862 Carter County, Kentucky Vital Statistics as Caroline,
born May 10, 1861, Carter County, Kentucky, and died November 10, 1861,
at age 6 months of bold hives, Carter County, Kentucky.  Th name Caroline
is not on the family monument.  However, Malinda appears on the family
monument as born June 24, 1861, and died November 19, 1861, and is listed
as daughter of William  and Nancy E. Stamper, Bethel Cemetery, Olive
Hill, Carter County, Kentucky.  On the same monument, the mother's death
is listed December 25, 1861.  Because of  the closest between the birth
and death dates, it is believed Caroline and Malinda is the same child. 
The May and June birth months of the same year rule out the chance that
Caroline and Malinda could have been twins.   The mother's death just
seven months later precludes time for a second child.  It is possible
that an error was made in the typing of the  Kentucky vital statistics. 
Kentucky birth and death records were not required to be recorded prior
to 1911.  Sources: monument picture, Carter Co., Ky. Vital Statistics

WILLIAM STAMPER's SECOND MARRIAGE 

William Stamper, son of James W. Stamper "Pewter John Stamper", married a
second time at age 30 to Nancy Pendland sometime between 1862 and 1866,
probably in Carter or Lewis County, Kentucky.  William is listed in the
1870 Carter County Kentucky Census with real estate value at $400.00 and
personal assets value at $1100.00.  At least five and possibly six
children were born to this union.  The census also lists his parents,

daughter of George and Susannah (Logan) Pendland.  Nancy died March 19,
1877, Carter County Kentucky.  She is buried in the Bethel Cemetery,

Kentucky.  The 1870 Carter County, Census lists her as Lovena, age 4 and
the 1880 Carter County, Kentucky  Census lists her at age 13.   She
married under Lodenia, March 9, 1882,Carter County, Kentucky, to Samuel
J, Evans.  A child may not have been born to this union because Lodena
died 14 months after she married.  Lodena died May 10, 1883, probably
Carter County, Kentucky because she is buried in the  Bethel Cemetery 
located in Olive Hill, Carter County, where she is listed on William's

Kentucky, to 

William Jason Ervin, a 22 year old  farmer born about 1861, Carter
County, Kentucky.   Joseph Stamper and Sallie Stamper were witnesses to
Susan's first marriage.  Susan and William Jason apparently divorced or
the marriage was annulled because both married a second time.    
Susan married a second time  to W. James Sparkman "W. J." December 24,
1886, Rowan County, Kentucky, with her parents as witnesses.  Susan's
second marriage was less than two months old when death claimed herat age

Rev. Bradshaw.  Their  witnesses were Mellie Erwin and  Bertha Erwin.   
To this union, 13 children were conceived, however, 8 were born dead. 
The 8 babies born dead to Allie and Beatrice were because Allie's blood
type was RH positive and  Beatrice's was RH negative.   

Allie and Beatrice had a home in Ocola, Florida, where they bought burial
lots and had markers made.  After Allie's heart attack around 1959 or
1960, they moved back to Bidwell, Ohio.  Allie, age 86, died July

disease, Coolville, Ohio, at the home of Geneva Doris.  Beatrice was

of her death, Beatrice had 3 daughters living.   Sources: Bible records,

WILLIAM STAMPER'S FIFTH MARRIAGE

(Miller) Harris February 24, 1901, Carter County, Kentucky.  William and
Cynthia's marriage was witnessed by C.M. Erwin and their only child,
Abraham Lincoln Stamper.  Since Abraham Lincoln was 8 years old when his
parents married, he was obviously conceived by an earlier romantic
involvement between William and Cynthia.  The 1900 Carter County Kentucky
Census lists William, age 60, and a  widower with son, Abraham Lincoln,
age 6.  William died September 15, 1906, Carter County, Kentucky, and is

                          Granddaughter Gladys' Memories of Granny
Cynthia Stamper 
A visit to Granny Stamper's in Kentucky, was always an adventure.  Granny
Cynthia, lovely called Granny, never cut her long straight black hair
during her lifetime.  Her younger grandchildren used to love to comb her
hair and watch her shape her hair. She would braid her hair and wrap it
around and around to a large round bun back of her head and hold it all
together with large long bone hairpins.  Granny Cynthia had a broken hip
and she walked with a hand made crutch.  She smokes a pipe and chewed
tobacco.  Granny Cynthia had a pet black snake named Old Joe.  I remember
her sitting in front of the fireplace with Old Joe wrapped around her
shoulders and her hands petting him.  Old Joe slept at her feet each
night.  She always kept lots of snakes in her smoke house, barn and
storage areas to control the rats and mice. 

Granny's talents was many which included using God's earthly bounty which
afforded her a rich full life.  Granny believed in living off the land as
fully as possible. She could can and preserve any thing including wild
animals such as rabbit and squirrel.  She had a cellar dug back into a
hillside where she kept all her canned foods mostly stored from the
earth's food chain. 
 
Granny loved but did not baby her grandchildren.  During visits, she
would assign each grandchild a duty to perform indoors or outside.  At
times we would have to pick fruit, berries, gather greens and spices,
gather nuts and dig roots all from nature's abundances for use in her
kitchen.  She believed one should earn their meals.  She was a wonderful
cook and housekeeper in addition  to being a super loving grandmother.  
When it was time to leave after a visit to her home, Granny would treat
all the grandchildren to one can of what ever each wanted from her
cellar.  The grandchildren loved this and most time would picked a jar of
her spiced peaches, the best in the world to them.  I was 12 years old
when Granny died and she is still missed .  I love to tell my two
children and my grandchildren about Granny.  My memories of her are and
always will remain in my heart until we can meet again in the presents of
our Heavenly Father.      Source: Gladys Veronice Stamper Meyers,

Instead Cynthia worked very hard on the Perry farm.  Sources: Laura Inez
(Gilliam) Webb( step-daughter) Mahala Miller's Marriage Certificate. 


Cynthia Barbara Miller was a full blooded Cherokee Indian according to
verbal family history handed down through generations. Cynthia's
granddaughter, Helen (Sloan) Simpson, made a certified affidavit stating
that when she was a young girl, Granny Cynthia Stamper told her
personally that her Granny Stamper was a Cherokee Indian.  Betty
(Stamper) Wellman and Gladys (Stamper) Meyers, daughters of Abraham
Lincoln and granddaughters of Cynthia Stamper, remember visiting Granny
Stamper and seeing her Indian jewelry.  They remember hearing her Indian
stories and that she had a pet black snake named "Old Joe".  To Betty and
Gladys' knowledge, no documentation exists of Cynthia's Cherokee Indian
status.  There are many Millers documented on several Eastern Cherokee

Samuel  Harlen Erwin, at a very young age and while working at the mill,
boarded with Granny Stamper in New Boston, Ohio, along with his brothers:
Walter, Troy, Lloyd, and Frank Erwin.  Granny Stamper was a widow renting
out rooms in her home and her beds were very good and clean and they were
always full.  It was hard times them days and Granny would sleep the
night workers in her beds during the day and sleep the day workers in the
same beds at night.  This was the way she made ends meet.  She never made
a big lot as everybody charged a dollar a day, that was the going rate
all over.  In those days, almost every house in New Boston kept one to
four or five boarders.  About everywhere, you had to put your suitcase
and things under the bed because there  were no closets. Granny's
boarding house was tore down to build a funeral home about 1987 or 1988.

Sam Harlen said Granny could get up in the morning and fix a good
breakfast for five or six boarders quicker than anybody.  While the
boarders ate, she would pack their lunch and she made a good sandwich. 
Granny made eggs, ham, bacon, biscuits and gravy, almost anything you
would want. Sam said he boarded all over New Boston but Granny was the
best.  Not all boarding houses made your lunch and you didn't get much to
eat.  One place he boarded , the lady made three sandwiches out of one
egg.  He would take the egg off of two and throw away the bread.  He then
put all the egg on one sandwich in order to have a good sandwich.
