I bought the three books on the Stoudts/Stouts/Staudts edited by Ellen M. Kramer (I assume this was you) some time ago that contain the official lineage of all the descendants. What an amazing resource and what an effort it must have taken to produce.
From my research in 2003 I believe it contains a mistake in Volume 3. The question revolves around the father of Daniel M. Stout (no. 88) who married Susannah Koch.
The book lists Daniel (no. 23 in the book whom I call Sr.) as having a son named Daniel (no. 88), but having no issue. I think this is incorrect and that Daniel Sr. should be listed as the father of Daniel M. (no. 115) instead. Correspondingly, I think John Staudt (no. 51) should not be listed as the father of Daniel M.
The book and other sources say Daniel M.’s father was John Stout of Bucks County, while I have strong evidence to the contrary. Daniel M. (no. 115), his father Daniel (no. 23) and his grandfather Johannes the Elder (no. 8) all belonged to the church in New Goshenhoppen, while the John (no. 51) in question lived in Bucks County. Further, I found gravestones in that graveyard for both of the Daniels.
I have detailed evidence that I collected back in 2003 to support this claim. I visited the National Archives and viewed pertinent records on microfilm, the Schwenkfelder Library in East Greenville and the graveyard at the New Goshenhoppen Reformed Church. I would be happy to send you this information if you are interested.
I am trying to find the parents of my gggrandfather Ferdinand Stout born approx, 1813 and died 1888. He was from Pennsylvania (Schuilkill, Dauphin County area probaby) then around 1870 moved to Illinois. He married Anna Maria Dietrich in 1842. Any info greatly appreciated. Thanks.
