Our Genealogical Helper for Stotlers Crossroads ...

We have a couple of goals for our Gazetteer:

  • That it be a tool that can help us with planning our trips.
  • That it also helps us to understand the community in which our ancestors lived, the community that was part of their daily lives.

By learning about Stotlers Crossroads (and the surrounding area) during the time that our ancestors lived, we hope to have a better understanding of both their community and its relationship to their lifes. We hope that this tool helps to give us insight while doing our genealogical research.

As we add data and organize our Gazetteer to help with our family research, we will be adding to this, our Genealogical Helper for Stotlers Crossroads. While we don't have information that is specific to any given person or family, we intend to expand our understanding about where and how people lived.

It's still very early in our research, but as we gather more information it will be added to this page.

Although we can't give a definitive list, hopefully the following will give a you a feel for the variations that might have occurred with Stotlers Crossroads.

  • Typical abbreviation for Stotlers Crossroads: Stotlers Xrds.
  • While the name of this community is Stotlers Crossroads, be aware that it's the common practice for mapmakers to remove the apostrophe from possessive names. So Stotlers Crossroads may originally have been Stotler's Crossroads.
  • Sometimes the trailing 's' might be dropped altogether, in which case Stotlers Crossroads might be written as Stotler Crossroads.

Neighboring Counties ...

When searching for family records, we have frequently made the mistake of not checking the neighboring counties.

For example, we have great-grandparents who lived in the northeast corner of their home county. During their lives, most hospitals and doctors were in the next county to the east. Almost all of the nearby churches and cemeteries were in the county to the north.

So when searching for records, we had our best success by looking in neighboring counties instead of the county in which they lived:  their home county contained property and probate records; the county to the east contained birth and death records; the county to the north contained their burial records. If we hadn't included the neighboring counties, we would have missed many valuable sources of information.

If you're in a similar situation, we hope that the following information helps.

Stotlers Crossroads is located in Morgan County.
