John Stackhouse, the progenitor of the Stackhouse family in the county, came here from Virginia, before the Revolutionary War; he married a widow, whose maiden name was Bethea, a sister of old Buck Swamp John Bethea; they had and raised two sons, John and William; don't know if there were any daughters. William, I believe, at any rate, one of them, emigrated to other parts; the other John, remained in the county; he was the grandfather of our fellow-citizen, T. F. Stackhouse. Don't know to whom he married- he did marry, however and had and raised five sons and one daughter; the sons were Herod, Isaac, John, Hugh, and Tristram. The daughter's name not remembered.
