I have a picture of Richard (known to our family as "Uncle Dick") Stites. It shows "the four Richards" -- my dad, my grandfather, Uncle Dick and his son Richard, who was killed in WWII in North Africa. I also me Uncle Dick once, at the 50th wedding anniversary of my grandfather and grandmother in Anchorage, Ky., back in 1961 (I believe). I think we took another picture then, another "four Richards" but if we did the picture has been lost. Uncle Dick died the next year, I believe. As Ann Mary Hopkins son, he was a link back to a time before the civil war. In his youth, he must have often visited Martha Carey Jones, his grandmother. Martha Carey Jones was born in 1796. Wonder what she told him about those times?

Wish I had talked to him about that, but of course at the time it was the last thing on my mind. I was a junior high student. But through him and the memories passed on to him from his mother and grandmother, we've got about the whole history of the United States. Richard Stites was born on 11 March 1870 at Henderson, Henderson Co., KY. He was the son of Richard Stites and Ann Mary Hopkins. Richard Stites married Mary Lynne Carter on 10 November 1917 at Henderson, Henderson Co., KY. Richard Stites died on 23 July 1963 at age 93.

     Note: From March 1994 letter from Elaine Hamersley (nee Stites) to Richard West Stites:

"My Aunt Mary Lynn once told me that I should write a book about my father's experiences as a conductor on the LH and STL train. LH&STL merged into L&N [Louisville and Nashville] later on. It was true--Dad never knew a stranger [meaning he knew everyone] and his many experiences with the people who rode the country train with him were really something. Your dad and I used to go to my grandfathers farm, which was on the 18th St. Rdl, out of Louisville. It was about 18 miles from Louisville. Once Dick (your dad) and I got on the train, in order to spend the day in the country with my grandfather, who was living there alone, after his wife died. My grandfather had two horses, I remember and some way Dick and I left the gate open where my grandfather's prize cornfields were full of green grocery corn stalks. My grandfather was in his late 70s or early 80s--but I never saw him more youthful than that day. He leaped over the fence to take a short cut into the cornfield and went "tearing out" to catch the horses, who were quickly eating all the corn they could handle. He did catch them before they did a lot of damage, but I will never forget that day. Also, Dad was the conductor that day on the daily train trip to Evansville, Ky. He let us off at Stites Station, which was near my grandfather's farm. Grandfather met us there and then put us on there again to go back to Louisville. As we backed into the station at Louisville he let us sit on the observation car, on the back end of it and blow the whistle, as we passed the grade crossings of the byways, as we came into Louisville. Ah memories -- so many are vivid to me. Of course, we thought our father was the "greatest" ever." Richard Stites Sr. was born on 23 July 1884 at Henderson, Henderson Co., KY. He was the son of Samuel Stites and Emma Bauer. Richard Stites Sr. married Bertha Will on 24 January 1912 at Louisville, Jefferson Co., KY. Richard Stites Sr. died on 23 September 1970 at Louisville, Jefferson Co., KY, at age 86.

Samuel Stites1

     Samuel Stites was "exemplary member of Presbyterian church."

Joseph Sullivant "A Genealogy and Family Memorial", 1874.

In Sullivant (1874) we have the following description:
"...Samuel Stites, a merchant in Henderson, a native of Philadelphia, who had been brought up to the mercantile business. He was an exemplary member of the Presbyterian church, a business man of correct habits and integrity, and much respected and esteemed."


The following was retyped from an article found at Henderson Co., Ky Library. The original was apparently taken from a newspaper clipping, circa 1920. (from Susan Bockhoven/3616 Fallen Timer Dr./Louisville, KY
40241-1619).

Pioneer Residence Withstands Time and Weather For Hundred Years:
Falls Before Wreckers


Within the next few days an old landmark that has withstood the ravages of time and weather for more than a hundred years will fall before the wreckers' hammers, giving way to progress and a more modern building.

This old residence which has occupied a revered place in the hearts of Henderson's older citizens for many years, has been donated to the Masonic order as the site for their new home. Plans for the new building are rapidly being completed and actual construction work will probably be started within the next 30
days.

At the presetn time, however, there is genuine sorrow in the household of the descendents of Samuel Stites and his wife, the pioneer residents of Henderson who about 100 years ago erected this fine old home on Second Street. For the last century the old home has remained in the possession of Stites-Barret family
and at no time since it was built has it been cared for by other hands.

A touching scene greeting the writer when he called on Mrs. Ann Stites, daughter-in-law of the pioneers, who is herself past the ninety mark in life's cycle, for it is the birth-place of her husband, Richard Stites, that is passing into oblivion.

Mrs. Stites trembled as she told the history of the building and how for almost a decade it had remained in the family, but realizing that times are changing and progress demands that Henderson expand and keep in step with the advancement of the world, she has resigned herself to the change knowing that like all that grows old, the building must give way to newer things.

In the early part of 1800 there was a young business man, who, in truth, was a wholesale merchandise dealer, making regular trips from Philadelphia to New Orleans with a raft of merchandise which he sold to stores as he moved down stream.

This primitive traveler was none other than Samuel Stites. His home was in Philadelphia. He assembled his merchandise at his home town, transported them to Pittsburgh by horses and there he loades them on a barge, built especially for the single trip.

Moving out into the current which was the only means of moving the barge, he would ease his cargo downstream. Of the many places at which he anchored his barge while he sold the merchangts his goods, Henderson was one.

As previously mentioned, New Orleans was the destination. Upon arrival, the barge was abandoned, for it was of no more use to this primitive travelling salesman, as he lacked pwoer facilities to get it back upstream.

Abandoning his boat in New Orleans, Mr. Stites would purchase a horse and make the return trip to Philadelphia on horseback.

The descendents of Mr. Stites could not recall the specific reason, but something attracted him to Henderson, where he decided to locate and make his home.

He had not been in Henderson long before he married a daughter of William Holloway. Their married life started in a small home on what is known as Upper or North Main Street. They lived at this place for an unknown number of years and then starts the story of the building now standing, but which this time next year will probably be replaced by a modern Masonic home.

Mr. Stites built, according to his own notions and ideas, the home in which he and his wife died.

Henderson was hardly more than a village at that time and the main street then was what we now call Second Street. The site chosen by Mr. and Mrs. Stites for their home was amply large with plenty of space on either side and also extending back for some distance in a wide, open tract of ground.

In this vacant lot at the head of their home they planted what later developed into one of the most beautiful flower gardens in the city.

To the left of their home, where the Hambleton and Arnett & Fenwick stores now stand, was the Stites stable and horse lot. While portions of the land were sold as the town grew, the home remained the same and has the same appearance today that it did when built.

At the death of Mr. and Mrs. Stites the home was deeded to their daughter, Lucy Stites Barret, wife of James Barret. Mr. and Mrs. Barret made their home on the old estate unitl their beautiful home on Center street was built.

At the death of Mrs. James Barret the home was deeded to her son, Henry Barret, who has for several years used the building for his office, and has now donated it to the Masons.
