  • Notes 
    • Albert Lewis Brassfield (9/11/1878 - 4/1968) is possibly the "Pappy Brassfield" reputed to be the father of Hildred Marie Stoltz as the result of an illicit relationship with Hildred's mother, Xenia Ohio Strong (7/1/1890 - 4/30/1931) prior to her marriage to Jesse Clyde Stoltz. The 1900 population of Mt. Carmel, Wabash County, Illinois was 12,583 - the 1910 population was 14,913. A possible Brasfield or Brassfield of the correct age living in Mount Carmel to possibly have fathered Hildred Marie Stoltz was Albert Lewis Brassfield. He is listed as a "prisoner" in the 1900 census and a "fisherman" in the 1910 census. He would have been 31 years old at the time of Hildred's birth on June 30, 1909. The individual known as "Pappy" is said to be buried at the Sand Hill Cemetery in Mount Carmel, Illinois.

      May 19, 1912 email - Mr. Brasfield. I am Hildred Stoltz's Grandson. I was wondering how she was in your family tree? I have heard long time "family rumors" that her real father was a man known only to me as "Pappy" Brasfield, but due to the times she and GGranmother Xenis Strong would not live up to it. Do you have any proof of this connection. It is my understanding that "Pappy" was of Native American descent. Thank you in advance. Ralph.

      July 24, 2009 - Comments: There was family talk after my Grandmother Hildred Garrett dies a few years back that she had been adopted. I search in Olney, Illinois and found that she had been adopted. Her mother's name was Xenia Ohio Strong. Hildred's first birth certificate stated father unknown. It was to my understanding from family lore that her real father was an American Indian that went by the name of "Pappy" Brassfield. Do have any knowledge of this person. I also believe "Pappy" Brassfiled is buried in Sand Hill Cemetary in Mt. Carmel. Any information would be appreicated.
      Thanks in advance
      Ralph James

      July 26, 2009 - Michael,
      Xenia Ohio Strong was her full name. Grand mother Hildred was born Hildred Marie Strong - June 30th 1909 and died October 20th, 1998. Hildred's other last names was Stoltz (adopted father's name), Adams and Garrett (married names). Yes, Sand Hill Cemetery, 3 rd Street, Mount Carmel, Wabash County, Illinois. I do apologize for the typo in Brassfield.
