Hi, sorry for the delay. As for the Stilwell name, John Stilwell Clute born in 1802,is the first Stilwell I have run into. He is the father of John Stilwell Clute born in 1840 (near Picton, Ontario)and the grandfather of John Stilwell Clute, born in 1867. Nothing like making life confusing. It has been my opinion that the "Stilwell" name came from New York State where the Clute family originated from. However, I have not been able to tie it to any one family in the east. Your J. S. Clute is the one who was born in 1840, in Ontario, Canada..
FYI, J. S. the first, 1802, was married to Maria Wood born in New York State.
I am interested to know about your Stilwell line.
