Re: John Stout in 1860 census

In Reply to: Re: John Stout in 1860 census by Tim Gruber of 4142

My great grandfather was Emil Stout,born Jan 15,1864 in Pittsburgh, Allegheny,Pennsylvania.He had a brother William that was 2 yr older (who grew up to be a fireman in Pittsburgh), another brother George who was 6 yrs older than Emil. And another brother Jake (unknown age)

Emil's father was John or Jonathan Stout,born in Baden Germany,was 30 yrs old in July 1860 census, rumored was a German Baptist Minister and laborer. Also rumored to have a lumber yard in Pittsburgh before 1860.

John's wife Catherine, born in Baden also, was 29 in 1860 census.

Also living with them was Hester (Easter) Annie Vost. Said she was mother, widow, age 36 in 1860 census born in PA. That makes her 6 yrs older than John so isn't his mother. And 7 yrs older than Catherine so she isn't her mother. In 1880 census of Elwood IN,and still living with the family although Catherine was no longer with them, she was listed as 65 yrs old. So either one may be wrong. I'm thinking the 1860 census is wrong but if she was 56 yrs old in 1860, she could of been Catherine's mother BUT why would Catherine be born in Baden, Germany if her mother was born in Penns. Maybe people traveled more than I think they would of back then!

So to get to the point, I would appreciate any info on these Stout's. Thanks
