Phoebe Barksdale

Phoebe (BARKSDALE) STINSON appears on pages 56 and 76 of "So Obscure A Person.” Her children were descendants of Alexander STINSON of Buckingham County. Her father Hickerson BARKSDALE (page 77) was a Revolutionary War soldier in the South Carolina militia under Captain John Cowan. He has been proved as a DAR Patriot Ancestor #A006165.

Her husband was George STINSON who appears on pages 43, 76-79. Although no one has yet proved him as a DAR Patriot, he signed a Virginia petition in 1780, that is now housed at the Library of Congress: Buckingham County Stinson Patriots.
