W. S. STOKES, farmer; P. O. Lebanon; was born in Waynesville, Warren Co., Ohio, Jan. 14, 1835. His parents, Ellis and Hannah (Morgan) Stokes, were both natives of New Jersey, of English descent, and were both raised as Quakers. Our subject attended the schools of his native county and devoted his time to the work of the farm. He has always been an industrious and careful man, and has acquired during his useful life a large and valuable property and comfortable competency. His farm of 125 acres is of the best land in the county, and the improvements he is constantly making on it increases its value and beauty daily. Mr. Stokes has reared a family of six children, viz.: Alice, Lydia B., Hannah M., Frank, Lizzie and Arthur E.; all except Alice now at home. His wife, Martha, to whom he was married Jan. 17, 1855, was a daughter of James Benham, a wealthy and influential citizen of Warren County, whose parents were among the very early settlers of the county.
