I found an entry in the Stubblefield Family Genealogy Forum on the internet by Diane Stubblefield Sylvester dated Oct. 9, 1998 that I thought was interesting and corroborates the stories I had heard in my family:
Simon lived in Virginia as early as March 27, 1672, but possibly sooner, when 'a matter difference between Ed. Cheesman and Thomas Cheesman and Symon Stubblefield' was referred to 'judgment in England.' On April 23, 1688, he was granted 288 acres in Gloucester County, Virginia, for transporting four persons into the colony; the land was near the courthouse and adjacent to the land of William Ross. In 1704 he paid quit rents on 200 acres in Ware Parish, Gloucester County. In 1656, in Halifax Co., Virginia, 36,000 acres were awarded to George Stubblefield from the King of England, and 17,000 acres were given to him in the same year from Lord Halifax...."
Simon apparantly had two sons. They were Edward b.? and George who was born in 1675 in VA. George's wife was Ann. Robert Stubblefield was the son of George and Ann. Robert was b.1702 in VA and died 1775 in NC. Robert's wife was Anne Parker, b.1704 in VA/d.1787 in TN. Robert and Anne had seven children. Their sixth was Wyatt, b. 1744 and married Ann Challis. Wyatt Jr. was the son of Wyatt and Ann and lived in Grainger Co., TN. Robert Stubblefield b.9Apr1803, was the son of Wyatt Jr. and Jemima. Wyatt Jr. died in 1816 and Jemima remarried in 1820. Robert was the next one taxed on their 100 acres. Jemima d.11Sept1834.
This Robert b.9Apr1803, is where my story begins.....
