Stalcup Family History

, was born about 1627 at Strangnas, Sweden.; He arrived at Fort Christina (New Sweden and present Delaware) in 1641 aboard the Charitas from Sweden. He married Christina Johnson about 1656. She was the daughter or Carl Johnson, who arrived at Fort Christina in 1656 on the Mercurius. She was probably of Finnish descent since the passengers on the Mercurius were Finns. It is thought that she married soon after her arriving at Fort Christina. John Anderson Stallcop died about 1684 and his wife, Christina died before 1697 in Delaware. Dates of birth of their children have not been documented for lack of recorded dates of the early colonists. Dates of birth have been estimated from information concerning their activities in later life, such as tax lists, oaths of allegiance, land transactions, census lists and other public records. Information from a land transaction dated 1677 reveals that there were eight children at that time. We have found names of only six and a reference to a seventh, a daughter, whose husband\'s name is revealed in John Anderson Stalcop\'s will, written in 1679. Therefore we have assumed that the eighth child was deceased by 1679 when the will was written.

    197 JOHN STALCUP, son of William Stalcup (127) and Margarete Anderson was born about 1766 probably in New Castle County, Delaware. According to family tradition John married Mary Gates (born about 1770 in New Castle Co., DE.) before 1794. John died after 1830 in Orange County, Indiana. Very little is known from record about John. He owned a part of the original tract of land that his father owned in Orange County, Indiana. This fact was mentioned in the deed of 1796 to Joseph Ming from William Stalcup, Sr. He was mentioned in the settlement of his father\'s estate in 1819. He also was thought to have lived in Smith or Sumner County Tennesee, prior to his removal to Orange County Indiana, but no actual record of his living there has been found. No record of him has been found in Orange County, Indiana, but we have found record of all the children, with exception of one, that have been listed in John\'s family by family members and other researchers. Their names come from census, marriages and other public records but we can\'t be absolutely sure of their identity. They have been placed in the family since they do not belong in any of the other families in the area. Perhaps someone will eventually find records to document our findings. Children:
