27 Oct 1998; mailto:jstamper@mis.net. Received an inquiry from Sandra Starnes Williams of Abingdon, VA. She is descended from Mary A. Stamper, b. 22 June 1841 in NC, who married James M. Adams. This couple lived in the Lee/Scott Co., VA area. Mary's mother, according to Sandra, was Frances Stamper, b. 1801 in NC. Mary's father is unknown. I'm not sure how to interpret all of this. Was Mary born out of wedlock, or was Stamper the married name and not the maiden name of Mary's mother Frances? We know, of course,
that Frances was an oft-used name for females in the Jonathan Stamper, Sr. line. Can anyone help with this?

Census of 1850 list children as Mary E (1833), Gilbert N (1836), George (1849), Margaret (1846).

W. S. STAMPS, head of household, b.June 1849, 50 yrs old, married 17 years, born in MS, Father born in MS, Mother born in MS.

My line descends from Eunice STAMPS/Marion Wylie "Buck" PRUIT. As you can see, I don't have alot to go on yet, (and unfortunately, no living relatives who know about the Stamp/Stamps family). I have seen references to STAMPER in my preliminary search, and wondered if STAMPS/STAMP has been found as a derivative of STAMPER.


2 Mar 1998 Bev, I came across this information when I was researching Thomas D. Ball, the brother of my ancestor, Jasper. I thought some one might find it helpful, or be able to tell me where she fits into "the big picture". It's from The History of Yolo County, California, by Tom Gregory and "other well-known authors".

"His second marriage was solemnized in Sacramento, March 24, 1867, uniting him with Miss Elizabeth N. Stamper, of Bath county, Ky., ... Mrs. Ball is of Scotch ancestry and was not only closely related to the Neely family of Welsh descent, and the Ralstons of Scotch ancestry, but also to Martha Washington, of Virginia. Her great uncle, John Neely, was one of the earliest settlers of Virginia and an Indian fighter. Her great-grandfather, Joseph Neely, before the Revolutionary war, with his wife and a few neighbors defended a blockhouse in Kentucky from the onslaught of the Indians."


1 Mar 1998 Judy Uplinger-Brannon Subject: Doc STAMPER .. In addition to my own direct-line STAMPER ancestors, I recently found out that my mother-in-law's first cousin is the widow of a STAMPER. If anyone knows of these people, would you please e-mail me privately, as this is date-sensitive.
Naomi BARNETT m. Homer Nathan (Doc) STAMPER. He is deceased but she is still living. Their children are Carolyn Edith, Virginia Estelle, Homer Nathan, Jr., John William (JW), and Robert Bruce.

Our connection is with Naomi's mother, Callie Edith BLITCH BARNETT, who is Granny's sister. Thanks, Judy Uplinger-Brannon

14 Feb 1998, mailto:glewis@MIS.Net; Subject George Washington Stamper and Nancy Nickell; Is there a Bible record listing George Washington Stamper and Nancy Nickell?? I would like very much to obtain a copy because this is my wife's family. We have a photo of their daughter, Martha Stamper who married Henry Johnson Epperhart in Morgan Co KY.
I have struggled to place this George Washington Stamper born 1818 in NC with the correct family. Some say he is the son of Thomas Moore Stamper and grandson of
James Stamper and Sarah Moore. This Geo "Wash" Stamper married Nancy Nickell, dau of Isaac Nickell and Priscilla Jones, on May 31, 1837. In the 1850 Morgan co census
he is 32 years old.

There are at least two George W Stampers in Morgan Co. The other George W Stamper was born abt 1810 married Jane Nickell on Sep 7, 1840. This Geo W is 40 years old in the 1850 Morgan Co census. So the big question. Which family does each of these George Washington Stampers belong? HELP, Gary Lewis

26 Jan 1998 mailto:jstamper@mailhost.mis.net

Am trying to help Mr. Dwayne Treat of Arkansas with his Stamper ancestor. Please help if you can. Ellen Stamper, born about 1859 in Kentucky. Married Remington W. Tolliver about 1878-79 in or around Rowan Co., KY. Ellen bore three children, then died 6 April 1883, probably in Rowan Co. Can anyone help?



24 Jan 98 mailto:Gray6064@aol.com Searching for information on Arnold and Hubert Stamper. Possibly lived in either Wilkes Co or Iredell Co, NC. Fathers name is "Ruffey" Stamper, possibly a nickname.

23 Jan 1998 (update) mailto:Gray6064@aol.com My Stamper has been so frustrating. I'm in NC, within an hour of where Maggie A. Stamper lived. I've tried everything to get a lead on her, but nothing. Even her death certificate was zilch. Listed her father as "Stamper" and her mother as "?". Know she wasn't hatched. Thought she was probably named Margaret and went by nickname of Maggie, but her death certificate reads Maggie. She had to have been from Wilkes or Ashe Co or possibly even Iredell. Since our last E-mail I have found one additional clue. An elderly cousin gave me some antique photos of the family. Included was a picture labeled "Gurney Stamper, cousin. Killed in train wreck returning from war". It's a picture of a man in full WWI uniform looking like he's in his mid 20's. I was so excited, but the cousin knew nothing. Since then, I've been searching but with no luck.
Is there a Gurney Stamper in your index? [answer; not to date]

[note from Kay Inman; For those who might have ANY information for Robert, his "Frankie" is person number 1 on report #1i from the Descedancy Report Menu of our web site. It is Jesse Toliver/Tolliver/Taliaffero that he really needs help with.

15 Jan 98 Pam Hatch

I'm new! I'm trying to find ANYTHING about my ancestress who has always been called Elizabeth STAMPER CARTER even though she was married and became Elizabeth DAVIDSON. I have the dandiest picture of her with more lines on her aged face than you can count! Here is what I know: Elizabeth STAMPER born:22 May 1796, place: North Carolina, md. 1st) _______ CARTER, son: Henry CARTER marr. Barbara CARMAN. died: 28 Jul 1865; md 2nd) Silas DAVIDSON, Dallas, Iowa, b. 1 Mar 1794, place: Virginia, died:
21 Jul 1879, place: Van Meter Twp., Dallas, Iowa. His 1st wife was Phoebe LEWIS, born: NC, died: KY. What this doesn't tell you is that Elizabeth (Stamper) and Silas DAVIDSON lived in Montgomery County, Indiana and had two children there: Daniel Nave DAVIDSON b. 6 Sep 1832, and Robert DAVIDSON b. 28 Jun 1836.

POSSIBILITES? 1) Could Elizabeth Stamper Carter have had an illegitmate son who took her last name? 2) If so, then her middle name was STAMPER and her last name could have been CARTER! (Her niece, Elizabeth Dent DAVIDSON, was given her mother's maiden name as a middle name. Is that a common practice?) 3) My mother told me last night that she had found an old genealogy worksheet of my grandmother's. It stated, "Her parents moved to Hendricks County, Indiana in 1828." 4) Henry CARTER was born in Kentucky and later shows up on a Hendricks, IN census in the northern part of Eel River Township, Hendricks County, IN by many other Carters. 5) That would mean that the Washington GW STAMPER written in the Bible record I sent to the list was a relative from her mother's side of the family. Could he be a nephew? 6) Are there "Bastard Lists" in Kentucky like there were in North Carolina? If so, Henry CARTER might be listed there.

[note from Kay Inman] I am inclined to believe that THIS Elizabeth was a Stamper because of her obvious ties to GW STAMPER. (see bible recs) Can't comment on the legitimacy of Henry, as I have absolutely no information to even make a guess.



8 jan 1998 Kay Inman. I know I asked this question before, and someone had an answer, but I lost it. Can anyone identify this William? (no dates or place names of any kind cited. Don't know WHERE it came from). William STAMPER md Mary Elizabeth RUDD . 4 children listed; Bertha, Claude, Charles, and Jack.

8 jan 1998 Kay Inman. There has been an error in posting marriages of Marion Stamper and Amanda "Mandy" Combs. The database shows Mandy md 1st in 1902 in Letcher Co KY to Marion Stamper b. 1877, s/o Hiram "Sheriff Hirmam" Stamper and Suzanne Hogg. Then the database shows her md. 2nd 1902 in Letcher Co, KY to Marion Stamper b. 1877, s/o Marion X. Stamper and Nancy Dyer. Would dearly love to clear this up. Can anyone help me get her attached to the correct Marion?

7 jan 1998 Kay Inman. Who are the parents of Elizabeth Stamper Carter Davidson who is listed in the Bible Records page on this web site? Her bible identifies the family of George Washington "Wash" Stamper (1818) who md. Nancy Nickell. This is also an unplaced line. If we can identify Elizabeth, we may be able to place GW's large line.

I am still seeking informaton on Mary A. STAMPER. b.Ky. Apr 7,1827 d.Davies Co., Mo.Sep 23,1902. She married George M. UTZ in Boone Co., Ky. Dec 20 1849. George was a native of Boone Co. but I found George and Mary in the 1850 Greenup Co., Ky. ceusus. They lived in Greenup Co. Ky for four years befor moving to Davies Co. Mo.

There has to be a connection between William and my Mary A. Utz maybe her brother. Can anyone tell me the parents of William H. Stamper?

I found, in my 1883 Boone Co. Atlas on page 41, Wm. H. Stamper. It says that he was a native of Owen Co. Ky., moved to Boone Co. in 1851, owned 50 acers and his occupation was farmer and merchant.

Also, under Burlington Business Referenes: WM. H. STAMPER, Dealer in Dry Goods, Groceries,&c. Produce taken in Exchange for Goods. Store 2 1/2 miles N.W. of Union. This is on page 10 of the atlas.

Also, on page 11 is W.H. Stamper living on Burlington Rd. in Burlington Precinct. On page 17 is Store of W.H. Stamper. His store is next to Pleasant Hill and is N.W. of Union in Union Precinct.



6 Jan 98 mailto:jjackson@comteck.com Re: Malissa Stamper - Ky. Malissa has been a mystery to me for the past 7 years. She appears on the 1900 Perry Co. Ky. census with her husband Nicholas Combs as well as the 1910 & 1920 Perry Co. census. Her name is usually misspelled - Malitia, Malisia, etc. etc. I talked to my great uncle about her and he used to call her Lith Ann. I do not know the year of her death but he told me she was buried on Walker's Branch near Hazard, Ky. The only clue I have as to her maiden name was the marriage certificate of her son John (Buck) Combs who listed his parents and it had Malissa STAMPER as being from Wolfe Co. Ky. I have searched every county in SE KY and have come up with nothing. I wouldn't think that someone born in 1858 would be so hard to find. Visit my Homepage

15 Dec 97, Herk Johnson. I am seeking information on Eliza Jane Stamper who married Joseph Johnson in Morgan County, In. The marriage license was issued on Dec. 19, 1866 and a JJ Johnson was the Clerk of the Court. They were married by R. Stamper on the 19th. I have a copy of the marriage license and I think the marriage produced eleven children of which my grandfather was one of them. According to a family Bible, the names of the children were: Tom, Hattie, Frank (my grandfather), Lillie, Albert, Elbert, Alma, Allen, Alice, and a half sister Nettie. As you can see, the Bible does not contain the names of all the children according to the cousin who has possession of the Bible. I just happened to locate her and she knows less about the family than I do even though she still lives in Morgan Co.
