Your Joseph Stout was my great-great grandfather. His son was Franklin Augustus Stout. Frankin's daughter, Nelle, was my grandmother. You can get all my family tree here on ancestry. "Webb Family of Grand Junction, TN". It's not complete here so far as the Stout line is concerned, so I'll update it the next day or so.
Family tradition is that Franklin Stout was Native American and was born on a reservation in Alamance county. Do you have any info on this?
