George Washington Stotts
Posted by: Joan Pulis (ID *****9184) Date: September 28, 2007 at 06:40:41

Am looking for information on George Washington Stotts b. 25 July 1847 in Adair County, Kentucky, married 14 Sep 1876 in Lucas Co. Iowa to Margaret Ellen McClain, and who died 6 July 1936 in Ottumwa,Wapello, Iowa. On his death certificate it states his father was M. Stotts and his mother was “Polly” Ann Smith b. in Virginia but have no idea if that is accurate.

Am trying to determine the parentage of he and his possible brothers:
Green Stotts, (b. abt 1851, mar. Emeline Hunt in 1871 in Marion Co. Iowa)

John R. Stotts, (b. abt 1854 in Adair Co. KY, mar. Mary Newell in 1876 in Marion Co. Iowa, d. 14 Mar 1929 in Glenwood, Mills Co. Iowa).

I cannot find George, Green or John in the 1850 Adair Co. KY census. They are in the 1860 census with Mary Stotts and John Stotts listed as an idiot. It is not clear whether Mary Stotts is a sister, wife or caretaker to John Stotts (idiotic).This Mary Stotts shows up in the 1870 Census in Marion Co. Iowa as residing with John Fletcher and family and in the 1880 Census in Marion Co. Iowa as married to John Fletcher with John (idiotic) living with them which seems to me indicates that she and John were not married but perhaps brother and sister. If this is the case who are the parents of Washington, Green and John R. Stotts?

(John Fletcher in 1871 marries this Polly Stotts as his 2nd wife. His first wife was Paulina Ann Stotts, b. 25 Mar 1813 in Adair Co, KY, d. 11 Dec 1861 in Columbia, Marion Co, Iowa, daughter of William Casey Stotts and Mary Burns/Barnes)

Any help would be appreciated in trying to sort this out.
