I am looking for information on my great great grandfather (Joe Stokes) and/or his daughter Mary E. Stokes. They were either from Arkansas or Missouri, the story is told that Joe Stokes built the courthouse in West Plains, Missouri, this would be in the middle 1800's I think.

Thanks,
Donna

Thank you for answering my posting, the truth is I don't know anything about Joe Stokes' parentage, or even his wife's name the only reason I know his name it is listed on the death certificate for his daughter, my ggrandmother, Mary E. Stokes Halpain, there is a bit of confusion about where she was born and in hopes of maybe finding some information I will include the confusion in this posting. Mary E.'s death certificate lists her birthplace as Tennessee, however; the obituary lists it as Arkansas. We know she was in Arkansas because she married Nathaniel Sinclair Halpain from Howell County, Missouri, and we are concluding that they were married in Missouri or Arkansas although there is no definitive information on that either. I hope maybe some of this information will help you help me please feel free to email me directly donnavan@warwick.net

Hello My name is Rebecca Simmons. I live in West Plains, MO. And my grandfather is a Stokes. The name Joe rings a bell. I will do some checking for you and get back with you.

Just curious if you have found any more information on Joe Stokes and family. It appears to me that Mary E. may have been born in Arkansas. That is listed as her place of birth on the birth certificate of her child, Ella Sledge Halpain 10 Nov 1882. It also says that Nathaniel was born in Tennessee.

Could your Joe Stokes be a Joel Stokes. I have Joel Allen Stokes b1848 Kentucky but died in Benton Co., Arkansas.
Check out www.my-ged.com/krajnik to see if anything rings bells. Most of my Stokes line migrated into Missouri around Adair Co. and Arkansa but some stayed in Ken.

Cheryl,
I doubt that they are the same the only thing I know about Joe is he is listed as Mary E.'s father on her death certificate, I do know she had at least 2 sisters and 1 brother his name was Joe too. I assume they were orphaned because the 1860 census has them living in a household with a different surname.

I am sorry to say the names you have here are not part of my family as far as I can tell. My great grandmother Mary Elizabeth Stokes married Nathaniel S. Halpain and lived in Texas.
