REV. HUGH STACKHOUSE, present resident minister of the Methodist
Protestant church, Mooresville, Ind., was born in Breckinridge County,
Ky., November 9, 1837. His parents, William and Jane (McNab) Stackhouse,
natives of England and of North Carolina respectively, came to Indiana in
the year 1841, settled in Orange County, and there ended their days. They
had eleven children - eight sons and three daughters - and six of the sons
and one of the daughters were older than the subject of this sketch. Up
to eighteen years of age, Hugh Stackhouse lived on a farm, and from his
father (who was a superior scholar), and through a pretty regular
attendance at the public schools, he received a good English education.
About this time, he began his theological studies, and in the year 1859
was received into conference at Morristown, Ind., and two years thereafter
regularly ordained Elder of the church. After being received into
conference in 1859, he was at once assigned to Richland Circuit, which
embraced twelve places for preaching, and held this charge three years.
The year following he ocucpied the Monroe Circuit; and on April 29, 1863,
he was married at Solsberry, Ind., to Nancy Jane, daughter of William and
Mary Hannum, of Ohio, and has had born to him four chldren - Urbine,
Charles H. (deceased), Arthur and Cora May. Since entering the ministry,
the Rev. Mr. Stackhouse has been kept constantly on duty, and during the
time has held some of the most important charges in the United States. He
is a thorough theologian, and ranks high among the many eloquent ministers
of the Methodist Protestant Church. In addition to his pastoral duties,
he is the occasional correspondent for several Church periodicals, and
holds the position regularly of Corresponding Elder for the "Methodist
Recorder". He has represented his conference in four General Conferences
and two General Conventions; is a Royal Arch Mason, a Republican in
politics and a stanch advocate of the cause of temperance.
