Born about 1838, supposedly in "Carter", VA (found a Cartersville and Carter P.O.). Father was supposedly Francois, had a plantation on James River, lost in Civil War and died soon after. Can find NO references to Francois anywhere. Can track James forward to 1880 census (1890 census burned). Can find no record of death in Fayette County, WV. Am trying to find James place of birth and parents. Any help would be appreciated.

Hello Jean Stinnett Thompson, My greatgrandfather was James Pleasant Stinnett. He supposedly came from Virginia and was living in Fayette County in 1850. Did not think his father was Francois, but not sure. Thought it may have been Richard. Fought in the 22nd Virginia Infantry. Raised a family in Fayette County, WV after the war. Have more information if you think he may be the James you're looking for.

I believe you're my second cousin, Barney, whom I met in 1979 at my first cousin Harold Stinnett's place. Do you remember my sister, Frances and I visiting and meeting our cousins? I married Ken in 1985, so, of course, you would not recognize Jean Thompson, as when you met me, I was Jean Bowers. I still live at 961 Camino Flores, Thousand Oaks, CA 91360. Phone 805-498-3367 (home, 805-989-4745 (work). My email is

Since that trip, I've been back numerous times trying to locate information on James and Salina, particularly when they died and where they are buried. None of my cousins seem to give a darn. I've been in the courthouse at least three times searching for more information. I was last in Oak Hill in October 1999, staying with Harold for several days. At that time, my husband (Ken Thompson) and I went to Hinton, looking for the burial site of my grandmother on my Mother's side.

My father was Aubrey Jennings, son of Louis and Ada Stinnett, who lived at 211 Lavender St. Oak Hill. I didn't know that James' middle name was "Pleasant". I have the exact wording of his description from the book "22nd Virginia Infantry" by Terry D. Lowery.

Forgive the rambling. I only have this little box in Ancestry to write in and it's hard to proofread. Would like to have your email address and correspond with you about family matters.

My great, great grandfather was Richard C. (?Cabble) Stinnette, married to Roberta Blanche. I believe they were from Amherst County, VA. Looking for relatives.

I, too, am looking for this connection. Here is what I have.

I need help finding additional information on Richard Stennett, born abt 1809 in Kentucky.

Probably the father of Charles H. Stennett, born 1840 in Illinois; moved to Montogomery County, Iowa; married Margaret (Shue, Schuh) who was born 1836-1838 in Ohio. They were married over 30 years and the census show her parents were from Germany.

I cannot find any information on Margaret other than what I've listed above.

Thanks for any help and I'll be happy to share whatever I have.

Do you have anything on Harry Parker Stinnette b. 16 Jul 1880, d. 26 Mar 1934, s/o James P. Stinnette and Selino Estel Painter?
According to Harry's death certificate his parents were born in Botetourt Co., VA of which I cannot find anything to date on them not even in the early census records.
James & Selino also had a son Charles E. Stinnette b. 31 Oct 1876 d. 05 Oct 1952

This may be very odd to hear, but I was watching an episode of "Pawn Stars" on television and a man came into the store with a "Acts of Congress" book that was owned by a James P. Stinnet. If this was an ancestor of yours, you may be able to contact the pawn shop in Las Vegas to see if the person who owns it may be willing to sell it back to your family. The episode was: Season 3, Episode 36.

Good luck!

Thanks. Do not think this book would have any family history in it.

I came across this post by chance and was stopped cold. My father just passed away. One things he enjoyed doing was constructing a family tree. His name was Charles E. Stinnett. I was just curious of any possible connection by name.
Thanks either way.

Is he the one that signed the book that someone was going to sell to Pawnstars? It was signed by James P Stinett?
