Wm. W. Stout, the competent Postmaster of Morrilton and a prominent
planter of Gregory Township, was born near the locality in which he
now resides, in 1852. He was the oldest in a family of three children
born to James M. and Sarah J. (Ashmore) Stout, who were natives of
Tennessee and Alabama respectively, and are, on both sides, members of
pioneer families to this and Pope County Paternal grandfather,
William, immigrated with his family to Pope County in 1842, and he
at once became one of the influential citizens of that county. In 1850
he was elected County Clerk, and re-elected for three successive
terms. After the war he was again appointed Clerk by Governor Murphy,
and while serving in that office was assassinated November 5, 1866. He
was a minister of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, and had
preached in Pope County since his settlement, and had become one of
the best known and most highly respected citizens. His wife died in
1875. Maternal grandfather, Andrew S. Ashmore, came to Arkansas from
Tennessee in 1838, and settled in Pope County, where he bought land
and made extensive improvements. In 1849 this family removed to Conway
County, and settled in Gregory Town ship. There Mr. Ashmore died in
1860, and was followed by his estimable wife in 1875. James M. Stout
was reared in Pope County, where he resided till 1852, when he removed
to Gregory Township in this county, and entered land, made
improvements, and resided till his death, in 1875. He was married to
Miss Ashmore in 1850, and this lady is still living. Mr. Stout was
Postmaster at Old Hickory from 1868 till his death, and was for years
a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South. The subject of this
sketch was reared on the farm, and had such educational facilities
as was afforded by the common schools. He was united in marriage in
1870 to Miss Hattie M. Peck, a native of this State and county. At
about the time of his marriage he entered a homestead, on which he
lived but a short time, and then sold his claim and bought his present
farm of 200 acres, on Point Remove Creek, two miles west of the
present site of Hattieville. Here he has made most extensive
improvements, and now has one of the best farms in Gregory Township,
having 125 acres under cultivation, nearly all of which he has himself
cleared, a handsome residence erected in 1887, and several tenant
houses. Farm is well stocked, and the portions not cleared are still
covered with good timber. Mr. Stout has always been quite active
politically, and is consistent in his adherence to the principles of
the Republican party, for which he has done much good in this county.
Mr. Stout has had much experience in the management of postoffices
having served almost continuously since 1875, when he was appointed to
the office at Old Hickory. He served there till 1880, and was
appointed to the office at Atkins, in Pope County. Here he served one
year when he was appointed mail agent on the railroad. The next year
he was reappointed to the office at Atkins and served till 1885. On
May 14, 1889, was appointed to the office at Morrilton. To the union
of Mr. and Mrs. Stout have been born five children, named in order of
birth: Henry M., Edwin D., Ella, William H. and Minnie Maud. Mrs.
Stout holds membership in the Presbyterian Church. The village of
Hattieville was named by Mr. Stout in honor of his wife Hattie.
