    • The Clarksburg "Daily Telegram" of Thursday, 30 April 1914, contains the following article, transcribed here in its entirety:

      "MRS. STOUT
      WHO IS DEAD IN PARKERSBURG WILL BE BURIED IN DODDRIDGE COUNTY
      PARKERSBURG, April 30. -- Arrangements for the burial of Mrs. Sarah J. Stout, who died at her home No. 1729 Spring Street at midnight Tuesday, due to rheumatism and a combination of diseases incident to old age, are that the body will be removed from this city to West Union Friday morning, and from there will be taken several miles into the country in Doddridge County, where interment will be made near Mrs. Stout's old home."

      NOTE: This information conflicts with the burial details of her death certificate, dated May 2, 1914 (Saturday), in which the undertaker, Carney Jackson & Enoch (of Parkersburg), stated that she was buried in the Parkersburg IOOF Cemetery on May 1, 1914. If, however, she was in fact buried near her old home in Doddridge County, that probably would be the now-abandoned Walt Stout Cemetery on Porto Rico/Maxwell Ridge Road, where her husband and son Aretas were buried in 1889.
