Author's comments and notes on source information
Hello my name is Gordon Stokely Jr. from Ohio (Originally from Del Rio, Tennessee), I would like to thank all of the people that have helped me gather and compile this information as well as all of the people and publications that are referenced or quoted herein.
This collection of records and documents is not provided in an effort to fully document the Genealogy of the Stokely’s from East Tennessee, that has already been done several times over for the various families. It is being provided in an attempt to outline the life of Jehu and his family.
I am looking for someone in the extended Messer / Huff family who may have received the Stokely Family Bible (the one that used to belong to Royal Stokely the son of the first Jehu Stokely). I was told the bible was said to be in the possession of Katie Huff Messer, wife of Brack Messer who lived a few miles above Del Rio. Upon Katie's death, the bible reportedly passed into the hands of her relatives (unnamed) in Johnson City, Tennessee. I would like to contact the current owner if possible.
If anyone has any ‘additional information with its source’ please feel free to pass it on to me so I can post it. It would be greatly appreciated.
