In Reply to: Re: Almon Chaffee,Steuben Co., Indiana by William R. Stacks of 1204

This has nothing to do with your posting, but with you surname: Stacks. I own a James Family Bible that lists a number of Stacks on the first pages of birth recordings:
Benjamin Stacks, December 5, 1797
Willis Ware Stacks, November 6, 1818
Maria Stacks, September 24, 1820
Nancy Stacks, March 17, 1822
Abraham Stacks, February 24, 1824
Lucinda Stacks, July 26, 1825

I suspect they are related to a Nancy Ware, who was probably the second wife of Benjamin Chitty. Nancy Ware Chitty was born March 27, 1781. I wonder if Nancy's mother was a Stacks? This is the last group of names in this Bible that came to me through the Thomas W. James Family. Long root, but would like to honor this family and place them correctly.
Thanks in advance for any leads.
