James T. B. Stapp was born in Fayette County, Ky., (now Woodford County), on April 13, 1804, the youngest child of James and Sarah "Sally" Burbridge Stapp. His father, from Virginia, was a soldier of the Revolution, and at its end, moved the family to Kentucky.
When James was 12 years old, his parents moved again, this time to Kaskaskia, Ill., and this is where we pick up their story.
