Husband:   Abraham Stout

Born: 23-Jul-1791
Died: Nov-1842
Father: Godfrey Daniel Stout
Mother: Catherine Magdalene Voltzen

Birthplace: VA

Note: I am including all the data beyond Abraham Stout assuming Abraham Carter Stout is the same person as Abraham Stout. Weldon Winfield Stout believed Abraham Stout was born in 1770 and died in 1842. This research is ongoing to determine if this the same person or not. So far I have no evidence proving it isn't, but that does not mean it is. So I included Abraham Carter Stout's ancestors here for research purposes.
Birth: Tennessee
This is where the line ends in regard to research. I included a note from this site: http://familytreemaker.genealogy.com/users/s/t/o/Jerry-A-Stout/GENE9-0002.html

BOOK: RACKLEY: A Southern Colonial Family" by Eloise Fretz Potter and Timothy Wiley Rackley, revised edition 1996 page. 707
"Elizabeth Rackley, daughter of Allen H. Rackley, was born about 1809 in North Carolina. She married James Stout, son of Abraham and Sarah P. Stout, , on July 24, 1828 in Blount County, Alabama. Abraham Stout (b. 1773/1779, NC d. Washington Co. Ark. ca. 1842) was a surveyor for the Baltimore Post Road, which ran through Madison, Morgan, Blount and Cullman Counties to Elyton, Alabama. That roadway is also called the Elyton Stage Road or Stouts Road. . ."

BOOK: "Before the German Settlement of 1873: The Land and People that Became Cullman County" by Gaylon D. Johnson The Gregath Company, Cullman, Alabama 1980. pages 77-78
"It is not known where the first Methodist Church was established in the present day Cullman County area, but there is evidence to prove the existence of several congregations. One piece of evidence is a recorded deed that shows that a Methodist Church was located at Stouts Gap near present-day Beech Grove. The church was placed near the point where Marriott and Pewderfork Creeks came together. On October 29, 1837, Abraham Stout and Sarey Stout, for the consideration of one dollar, gave a deed to the trustees of a Methodist church then in existence in Section Five, Township Twelve South, Range Three West. The land deeded is described as starting at the northwest corner of the Methodist meeting house and running south twelve and one half poles(rod?) then east thirteen and one half poles, then north twelve and one half poles, and finally thirteen and one half poles west back to the starting point. This tract was deeded to the trustees who were William Stout, Moses Hanna, Jeremiah Jones, Jr., William H. Rackley and Robert Pickel. All ministers using the church had to be in good standing with the Methodist General Conference, and to the ministers was given the charge of filling any vacant trustee seat. At the time of giving of the deed, it would appear that the church was already well established. The church building was already in existence and under the supervision of five trustees. Usually it took several years to get to the point of building a church building. The congregation qualifies as one of the earliest Methodist congregations in the area.

DEED: Deed Book B, Blount Co. Records Oneonta, Alabama

NOTE: It is said that Stout's Gap and Stout's Mountain located in Blount/ Cullman Counties Alabama were named for Abraham Stout.

BOOK: Descendants of Abraham Stout compiled by Duston P. Stout, Dec. 1, 1994 to help Stout's find each other. lists under notes for Abraham Stout:
"Abraham was possibly born in Mason Co. KY. An extract on his son, William, in Pope Co., Ar. Histories, indicates that Abraham was a surveyor and road builder who opened some of the major stagecoach roads in TN and AL. Abraham is reported to have resided in Knox Co. TN in 1806, moved to Roane Co. TN and on into Cotaco Co. AL where in 1818 he served as County Court Clerk. Later in the 1820's the family moved to Blount co. AL, then in ca. 1841 removed to Pope Co. AR. and then on into Washington Co. AR where he is reported to have died. It is very likely that there were other children born to Abraham, but as yet insufficient evidence has not been uncovered to connect them to this family. Duston P. Stout, Dec. 1994." lists ch: William, James, Isabella, Delano, Mary W. and Peter.
