1.GEORGE STEORTS

 

    George Steorts was born in MD August 15 1769 and died in Lewis County

VA (WV) February 24, 1851.  He married Eunice (Bailey) Stalnaker June 6, 1827.  Eunice, a daughter of Minter and Ann Nancy (Norris) Bailey, was born in Faquier County VA and died in Lewis County VA July 7, 1854. She had married John Whitman Stalnaker in Harrison County VA September 13, 1811.

        John Whitman Stalnaker, a son of Adam and Catherine (Whitman)

Stalnaker, was born in Va in 1779 and died in 1821.

        Different ancestries have been presented for George Steorts have been presented, but a paragraph from "Lewis County WV, Her People and Places", page 196, sums it up. "Although George Steorts is the earliest ancestor of this line known to have been a resident of the Hacker's Creek area, there is speculation that he came to the area in the household of his father. However, the identity of George's father is unproven." "It is interesting to note that the publication Heads of Families at the V Census of the U. S. Taken in 1790, which lists by counties the state enumerations 1782 to 1785 in Virginia, has listed, in the 1785 enumeration of Harrison County, four heads of households that could possibly have been the father of the sixteen year old George Steorts. These are: Abraham Stauts, Elijah Stauts. Joseph Stauts, and George Stuard (all surnames spelled here as in the referenced publication)."
