William STILES Sr. was born on 26 Mar 1769 in Mecklenburg Co., VA. He died on 2 Jun 1836 in Fort Bend, TX. William Stiles lived in Oglethrope County, Georgia
for several years, but it appears that they moved to Barron County, Kentucky, in 1787;
William STILES Sr. moved from Barron County about 1816-8 and lived at the mouth of Mulberry Creek on the Arkansas River in Arknasas and in May, 1819 was
camped at Doaksville, AR at the mouth of Kiamichi River and crossed the river to Texas in 1823.
William STILES, Jr. was born in Barron County, KY and married Hetty Stiles
John STILES was also born in Barron County, Kentucky and located in Doaksville, Indian Territory in 1818.



Henry Jones' father-in-law, William Stiles, Sr., was born in

Mecklenburg County, Virginia on March 26, 1769. Hetty Vinson was

born on July 4, 1769. Hetty Vinson's father was Jesse Vinson,

who died on January 12, 1801. Her mother was Esther Vinson, born

on April 11, 1721, and died on January 1, 1820--aged 98 years, 9

Following the route taken by Long's Expedition two year's

previous, the family headed south in 1819 toward the Red River.

The journey was very difficult over the Ozark Mountains along the

Poteau River. Thomas Nuttall left Fort Smith on May 16, 1819

along with a company of soldiers led by Major Bradford, also

bound for the confluence of the Kiamicha and Red Rivers. Nuttall

recorded the rocky ridges they had to pass and marveled that the

Stiles family had crossed the mountains with their loaded wagon

and family that included Stiles' mother-in-law, Hetty Vinson, who

was blind and 98 years of age. Upon arriving at the Red River,

William Stiles settled west of the Kiamicha River on the edge of

a prairie surrounded by wooded hills, about four miles from the

future site of Fort Towson, Oklahoma. The family probably

consisted of the following: Esther Vinson (age 98), William

Stiles (50), Hetty Stiles (49), Richard Stiles (26), John Stiles

(22), William Stiles, Jr. (20), Nancy Stiles (14), Sally Stiles

(12), and Hetty Stiles (11).

months, 1 day old.

William and Hetty Stiles were married in Elbert County,

Georgia on May 24, 1792, and may have also lived in Oglethorpe

County Georgia prior to their move to Barren County, Kentucky

before 1797--where John Stiles was born. William Stiles moved

from Barron County about 1816/18 and lived at the mouth of

Mulberry Creek on the Arkansas River, northeast of Fort Smith.

The family lived briefly at the mouth of Mulberry Creek, but were

forced to leave this property when it was ceded to the Cherokee

Indians. An 1819 petition from the Missouri Territorial

Legislature sought relief for Stiles and the other settlers

uprooted from the public land they occupied.

Around 1818 he moved with his father to Doaksville, Indian Territory, in the Red River
valley. In 1823 he crossed the river and settled near the site of present Red Rock in Red River County, Texas. When David Crockett entered Texas he reportedly stayed overnight "with his old friend." In 1836 Stiles joined Capt. William
Becknell's company, which arrived at the San Jacinto battlefield a day after the defeat of the Mexican forces. According to tradition, Stiles and others from Becknell's company were assigned by Sam Houston to guard Antonio Lopez de Santa
Anna because they would be, in Houston's words, "a less prejudiced group of men than the participants in the battle." Stiles was married to Kentucky native Sarah K. Reed; they had twenty-three children, twelve of whom reached maturity. He died
in Red River County in August 1854.
He was married to Sarah King "Sally" REED (daughter of Joseph REED and Mary "Polly" KING) on 19 Jan 1823. John William STILES and Sarah King "Sally" REED
