Looking for any information on the Stout family of Alamance County during the mid 1860's. What I have is Joseph H. Stout, brothers Aaron and Nathan. All three served in Company F, 53rd North Carolina Infantry during the Civil War. Joseph's son Franklin Augustus Stout, born around 1866, was my great-grandfather.

Family tradition is that Franklin was Native American and was born on a reservation in North Carolina, so any information about this would be great. I have contacted the Occanicchi Band of the Saponi, but they won't give out any info.

Thanks

Based on several census records, I believe the Native American part of your family history is false. All census records that list race say white. There was no Saponi reservation.
Joseph's parents were Henry and Susan Stout. Joseph was born about 1832. His father was listed as a waggoner/farmer and his property value was $750. Which was quite wealthy in 1850.

That may well be. What I was told originally was that he was Cherokee, but I was looking at the Saponi since they are in Alamance. Unfortunately, the oldest person still alive who might know for sure is 96, living in a nursing home, and has dementia.

You can go here and it will give you a history of the Saponi tribe. I read this information and I have no further comment on the Stout's. Good luck with your research.
