From a book titled History of Delaware County by Ashmead has article about Radnor Township and talks about a man named Lawrence Ramey who married Ann Eliza, the daughter of George Stacker of Radnor. "The valuable farm now owned by Mr. Ramey has been occupied by him continuously since March 1844. It was purchased for his use in 1843 by his wife's uncle John Stacker, then a prosperous ironmaster near Clarksville, Tenn. Stacker afterward became associated in business with Hon. John Bell, of Tennessee, a prominent politician and a presidential candidate just prior to the war. During the war their interest suffered terribly and much of their property, including the Cumberland Iron Works was destroyed. After Bell's death, Stacker by reason of having assumed liabilities not really his own, was financially ruined. As a result the claim upon the farm occupied by Mr. Ramey passed to the control of Stacker's trustees. To them Mr. Ramey paid the sum of twelve thousand dollars cash for the farm. etc.
I would say this proves that George J. Stacker born 3-29-1787 and your John Stacker from Tennessee were definately brothers and most assuredly sons of the George Stacker who is listed in the 1790 census in Radnor.
Best wishes, Don Leamy
