Hope I can explain this. Isaac Stackhouse is the Patriot. This all revolves around Monroe County Co. and across the Ohio River in Wetzel Co. ISAAC was born in Hampshire Co. WV and died in Monroe County, Ohio. on the Ohio River. Isaac sired JACOB STACKHOUSE {fact} In GenCircles Jacob sired JOSHUA WOODS STACKHOUSE who is my GG Grandfather born in 9 Jan. 1823 in Hanover, Columbiana Co. Ohio, also on the Ohio River. Died in Wetzel Co.WV. in 1912. There is also a Joshua Stackhouse born the same time in Clinton Co. Ohio. This county is in the South Western part of Ohio near Indiana. Don't think this was Jacob's son, because they were all living in counties on the Ohio River. The problem is in Ancestry it has both these two Joshua's mixed with the decendants that I am sure of. The JOSHUA that died in Proctor,Wetzel Co. WV was were my G Grandfather lived and he and Joshua are buried there. The Census of 1880 has Joshua's parent' s birth blank. These two Joshua's have different wives. Mine has Mary Jane McFarland as his wife and the other has Ellen Jane Spencer. There are several families on ancestry with all the same relatives except for Joshua. Some people have Him and wife Spencer and others have the one with wife McFarland, but everthing else is the same. My Joshua has parents unknown which I find hard to believe. I'm stuck. The GenCircles has my Joshua as a son of Jacob. Ancestry has Joshua from western Ohio as the son of Jacob. Any advice of what to do now would be relly appreciated. If I can't connect my Joshua i have lost my Patriot. Dianne

Alice was a child of Joshua and Mary. she married a Powell right? George her brother also married a Powell, Sarah. JW [ Joshua Woods}Stackhouse is also correct. Albert is also right. The problem is on GenCircles it has Joshua's father as Jacob a son of Isaac the Patriot. Ancestry has Joshua father unknown in 2 researches and in the others has Joshua married to Jane Spencer and from Clinton County, Ohio and mine is from Monroe, but they have all the sibs the same and the people they married. Grrrrrrr Dianne
I have census with George and Joshua and Mary Jane {McFarland ] mother. I tried to get some of those deaths from WV vital records, but said there was no records. Will try again later. Thanks a bunch . Dianne
if there's anything you need just hollar, ok?
I just thought it was strange some records show parents as Joshua & Mary McFarland, and others as George & Mary McFarland....... I think it requires more research, will get back to you if I find anything else.

DAR Patriot Lookup Service
The DAR Patriot Index contains names of Revolutionary patriots, both men and women, whose service (between 1775 and 1783) has been established by the National Society, Daughters of the American Revolution. Additional information available may include: dates and places of birth and death, name(s) of wife (wives) or husband(s), rank, type of service, and the State where the patriot lived or served.

Online GRC Index
Isaac is the Patriot I have his paper work on pension. I think one other person is in the DAR through him, but don't know who they are. If I could just put Joshua with Jacob the son of Issac I'd be OK. How can Joshua know his name and where he was born and not know his parents. The Stackhouse were Quakers at one time, don't know if they were still in that time period. They did shunning, and maybe he and his father had a falling out. I did find out that Monroe Co. does not have any records before 1867 and Joshua was born in 1823. So I'm stuck there. Should I just give up! I thought I had a Patriot on my fathers side, but he was an uncle and not married. Thought he was a grandfather. Dianne This John was with Isaac in Harrison Co. Thought it was a son, but he was born in Bucks Co and Isaac in Hampshire Co. WV
Isaac's Father was Jacob B. 25 Aug/ Oct 1713 Middletown, Bucks Co. wife Hannah Watson
