My GGGGG-Grandfather was evidently Hans Jacob Stambach (Stumbaugh) who came to America about 1732 as an endentured servant ( I believe he kept books for a gentleman) and his parents paid off his endentureship. He apparently moved out in the country outside of Philadelphia and married and started a family, later moving to Rockingham County, Virginia. One of his sons was Frederick (my GGGG-Grandfather) who married a Margaret Houdershell (or Howdershell) and they had about 12 or 14 children. Apparently Margaret died at some point and Frederick then married a Mary Rolas. Apparently after she had died, Frederick moved to Lawrence County, Ohio and lived his later years with his son John. One of Frederick's sons was David Dart, my GGG-Grandfather. He was born in Rockingham County, Virginia and later married a Rhoda Gilliland in Greenup County, Kentucky. They lived in Kentucky for a while and then moved to Lawrence County, Ohio where they lived for quite some time before moving to
Cass County, Indiana. At some point in time, David Dart apparently fought in the Mexican War (about 1847). One of David Dart's sons was Andrew Jackson Stumbaugh, my GG-Grandfather. David died of Typhoid Fever in 1850. Rhoda lived to be age 89. Andrew Jackson Stumbaugh and his family along with the Pattens left Indiana in the fall of 1867 (or thereabouts) and came to Arkansas, settling in Johnson County.
