I have the following and the fact that the sister of my great grandmother, who was Lovie Cox, born 1873 in Lebanon, TN married John J. Stobaugh 6 June 1893 probably in Tennessee where he was going to school, returned to Arkansas, then they and their family traveled to Tishomingo, OK where they lived the rest of their life. He was born 21 August 1872 in Choctaw, AR. I would like to know how Dr. Stobaugh fits in. The article was written by the daughter of Lovie and John Stobaugh.

Dr. Fielding Stobaugh
By Elizabeth Stobaugh Pyle

A graduate of Vanderbilt University School of Medicine in the 1880ís, Dr. Fielding Beeler Stobaugh returned to open his physicianís office in his birthplace, Choctaw, Arkansas. He married Agnes Garrett, and they had a son, Jephtha Guy. After his wifeís death, he married Mrs. Catherine Mabry Garrett who also had a young son, Don. In 1901 they came by train to Mannsville I.T. (Indian Territory), where he opened a new office. A daughter, Margaret Helen, was born to them there in 1902.

Dr. Stobaugh was on the staff of Hardy Sanitarium, Ardmore, Oklahoma, and that of Neatherly Hospital in Sherman, Texas. In a horse-drawn buggy he followed trails and makeshift roads visiting patients; attending the sick, delivering babies and making the dying more comfortable. He enjoyed the added comforts of a Model T Ford roadster mater, more especially since it enabled him to visit more patients.

Dr. Stobaugh was an active member of the Masonic Lodge in Ardmore, taking advanced degree. He died in October 1926, and was buried in Mannsville Cemetery with fellow Masons conducting their orderís burial service.

An accomplished pianist, Mrs. Stobaugh was active in Mannsville Baptist Church. She was a dress designer and seamstress of note. She died in 1943 and is buried in Mannsville Cemetery.

(His son) Guy Stobaugh married Kate Brown of Tishomingo. He died in April 1965, and his widow, Kate, lives in Wewoka, Oklahoma.

(His daughter) Margaret earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in piano and a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish at Oklahoma College for Women, Chicasha, Oklahoma; a Mater of Arts in English from Oklahoma University, Norman, Oklahoma, and a Doctor of Philosophy in Letters from Nacional Universidad de Mexico, Mexico City, and enjoyed a long interesting career in Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas. She died January 1, 1963 and is buried in the Mannsville Cemetery.
From Johnston County History of 1979

Footnote: There is no mention how Doctor Stobaugh was related to John J. Stobaugh though the article was written by the same descendent.
