    They moved to Marion Co, IL about 1844/45 from Mason Co, (W)Va.

    On the 1850 Marion Co, IL census living near his brother Robert.

    The 1860 census shows Stokes and Manerva born in Va along with their first 3 children (Aneline, Vernal and Dryden), and the rest born in Illinois, so they must have come straight from Va. to IL about 1845, the same time as his brother Granville.
