This is a photo of my great grandfather John A. Stout. He was born about 1863, probably in Indiana. He was an orphan and I would like to find his parents and other family. He was raised from young boyhood by a couple named Elisha and Elizabeth Spencer in Wayne (Richmond, Indiana) and Randolph Co., Indiana. The Toneys/Spencers were from Preble County, Ohio and their parents were from Franklin Co., Virgina and PA. Many in the Toney family were from Boone Co., WV now Kanawha Co., Va. Stout was probably John A.'s birth surname, because he mentions an Aunt Jane Stout, Matt Stout, J.A. Stout, and a George Stout in a journal he wrote in in 1894. Does anyone recognize his photo or any of these names or places? I would love to find his Stout parents and family!

Mystery: This is John A. Stout born about 1863, probably in Indiana. He was an orphan raised from young boyhood by a couple named Elisha and Elizabeth Toney Spencer from Preble County, Ohio. This Toney family was from Franklin Co., Virginia and Boone Co., WV now Kanawha Co., Va. They raised John A. in Wayne County, Richmond, Indiana and Randolph Counties in Indiana. John A. Stout had some kind of relationship with his natural family because he mentions the names Aunt Jane Stout, Matt Stout, J.A. Stout, and George Stout in a journal that he wrote in 1994 in Richmond, Wayne County, Indiana. However, I do not know who these people were. Who were John A. Stout's parents? Where did he come from? What Stout family did he belong to before he was orphaned?

Arland Benningfield I suggest you look in the Federal census of 1880 Ind. The person & parents are supposed to be listed. Also, 1880.see if he is listed in the home of the Spencers.

Janice Reid Toney Go to [external link] and do a search for the Toney/Spencer names; you'll get a hit for that particular couple. Maybe it will help in your search. Elizabeth Toney's dad's brother is one of my ancestor's.

Susan Harlow My Great Great grandfather was John Stoudt born 1830 Baden Germany, wife Catherine born 1831 also Baden. They had 3 children, all born Pittsburgh, Penn. George born 1856, Joseph 1857, Elizabeth 1859. Catherine died, John married Mary Magdelina and had son Emil Emanuel Stoudt in 1865. Later changed to Stout after moving to Indiana. There is a bunch of Stout's in Indiana that we are not kin to. Emil raised his family in Elwood. I have old pictures of them and will post on ancient faces.
