Miscellaneous Stout information from: History of Braxton County and Central
West Virginia by John Davison Sutton, Sutton, WV, Jan, 1919, reprinted 1997
by McClain Printing Co., Parsons, WV:
"Wm. Stout, who was a fine mower with a scythe, at one time, in one day, on
a wager, mowed four acres of grass. He fixed up two first-class scythes and
placed a grind stone in the field, hiring two men to grind and whet his
blades. In this way he nothing to do but to swing the sharp, keen scythes.
Being a very strong man and an expert mower, he won the wager." P. 222
"Henry S. Hefner was born June 24, 1859, at Sutton. His father, Samuel C.
Hefner, was born in Greenbrier county, W. Va., and his mother, Sarah E.
Shaver, at Flatwoods. Mr. Hefner was maried Sept. 1, 1886, to SARAH A.
STOUT, and their children are Ersie D. [Hefner]; Effie L. [Hefner], and
Sarah Rachel [Hefner]. He now resides at Barboursville, W. Va., and is
engaged in farming and the real estate business.
"Mr. Hefner's father served four years in the Confederate army, having
enlisted in 1861, and was lieutenant at the close of the war. He soon
afterwards moved to Glenville, living there seven years, then moved to the
farm on Salt Lick near Burnsville where he spent the remainder of his life.
His mother spent the latter part of her life at his home in Barboursville."
"Mr. and Mrs. Daniel Sotut were two of the oldest people in the
neighborhood. They had dwelt together for fifty-nine years, and had spent
the greater portion in Flatwoods. The first to be taken was the husband,
who, on the 6th day of January, 1911, in his ninety-second year, died at his
home in Flatwoods. He was followed by his wife, whose death occurred Dec.
14, 1916, in her eighty-fourth year. They were married Oct. 18, 1852. To
them were born ten children, four of whom died in infancy. Six lived to
adult age, Mary E. [Stout], Sarah E. [Stout], D. Amanda [Stout], Fletcher H.
[Stout], Addie L. [Stout] and R. Lina [Stout]. No family in this
neighborhood every lived a life of greater tranquility than that of Daniel
J. Stout. He and his famiy had long been members of the Baptist church.
Aunt Kay, as she familiarly called, ws a faithful nurse and attendant upon
the sik. In the death of these two persons, is the passing away of those
whose places may not be easily filled." P. 425
