I have been unable to locate any graves for John's father, grandfather, or great grandfather even though they all died in Monongalia County, West Virginia. The graves have either grown up or the markers have been destroyed or removed down through the years. John's greatgrandfather, Stephen, was the first Stiles to settle in West Virginia prior to the Revolutionary War.
