Terry Underwood My great, great Grandfather was Captain Stout. Just recently I visited the Stout Cemetery and the Perryville Cemetery where a lot of my Stout relatives graves are. My Great Grandmother was Lillian Stout. She was married to William Tom Stout. My Grandmother was Margaret Stout Jackson. I took several pictures of the cemetery. My Great Aunt Ludeen Stout Patterson is still alive at the age of 84 also her brother Henry Stout.
