I'm not related.
Joseph Stuts and family (misindexed as Stubs) appears in the 1860 census of Juniata County. The family includes Joseph 35, Hannah 33, Henry L. 9, George 5 and Marth A. 3 (mistakes in the census are very common).
It would seem Hannah was probably widowed by Joseph and married the much older Jacob as you concluded.
I suggest getting William's death certificate. It should list his parents' names. If he died in Pennsylvania the PA Dept of Health would have it. If his death certificate doesn't help his siblings' death certificates might. All their obituaries could also have the father's name.
If Joseph's children were to inherit anything as minors they may have had guardians appointed to watch over their inheritance. This record would be at the Juniata County Orphans Court. Any estate file for Joseph would be at the Register of Wills. Any record of property he may have owned would be at the Recorder of Deeds. Sometimes the heirs sell the land sometimes many years after the person died. These would all be at the Juniata County Courthouse.
Check with the Juniata County Historical Society and possibly the Juniata Mennonite Historical Society to see if they can help you.
