Elbert Worley Stophel and Rosa Bell Houser

I did this work for a friend of mine. It is not one of my lines.

Elbert Worley Stophel was born 8/2/1857 in Sullivan County, TN to Owen Worley Stophel (DOB 10/25/1825 in TN; DOD 4/12/1914 in Sullivan County, TN) and Emmaline Taylor (aka Emeline Taylor, Emmeline Taylor) (DOB 4/4/1832 in TN; DOD 10/9/1896 in Bristol, Sullivan County, TN). Elbert Worley Stophell was the eldest of 7 children. His siblings were Jonathon Stophel, John A. Stophel, William D. Stophel, Abram Carl Stophel, Jacob R. B. Stophel, Owen Andrew Stophel.
I found the name of Stophel spelled different ways such as Stophell, Stophal, Stophall, Stoffle, Stoffel, Stoffl, Stuffle, Stovall.

Campbell (I was not able to confirm any sources for his dates of birth or dates of death).

3) Susan Katherine Stophel (aka Susan Catherine Stophel, Kate Stophel) (DOB 4/28/1888 in Sullivan County, TN; DOD ? in ? ) married William Daniel Smithson (DOB 5/13/1888 in TN; DOD 9/26/1964 in TN)

Elbert Worley Stophel moved out to California where he lived from 1932-1940 because I found him on the Voter's Registration Lists for California. He was living in Cutler, Tulare County, CA where his 2 daughters from his 2nd marriage were living with their families.

Evidently Elbert Worley Stophel and Rosa Bell Houser had some property that TVA (Tennessee Valley Authority) needed. Here are the documents of where they relocated Elbert Worley Stophel in 1946 after Rosa Bell Houser Stophel died. It makes interesting reading. You get a sense of their home, their property, rumors of income, their history, the family situation, their health... all in TVA documents.













Rosa Bell Houser Stophel died at the age of 77 in 1/21/1945 in Bristol, Sullivan County, TN. I was not able to find her death certificate.

Think about what happened during the lives of Rosa Bell Houser and Elbert Worley Stophal! He was born in 1857 so he had some memories of the War of Northern Aggression. His father may have even served. He grew to adulthood during the Industrial Revolution. He lived through WWI, the the Spanish Flu Epidemic, the Great Depression and WWII. He lived during tremendous upheaval in our country. A time when horse and wagons gave way to cars, trains, airplanes. He made major life changes and moves too going from the mountains of Tennessee to Alabama, Arkansas and California before coming back to Sullivan County, TN. He raised children and saw children die. He outlived two wives with remarriage to his 1st wife. He would have been a very interesting person to interview.

Mission History
Took off from Nadzab Airfield No. 1 at 6:41am on a flight bound for Mokmer Drome on Biak with a stopover planned at Tadji Airfield. The B-17 planned to fly a course of 302° magnetic north to the coast west of Tadji. After take off, the B-17 was never seen again and was presumed to have been lost before reaching Tadji Airfield. The entire crew was listed as Missing In Action (MIA).
Search
This B-17 never made the proposed stopover at Tadji Airfield, as no record of its stopover could be established. The cause of the disappearance was unknown, but was reported that it might be lost due to "possible enemy antiaircraft fire or navigational circumstance". Since a 5th Air Force raid over Wewak and Dagua encountered enemy anti-aircraft fire, it was believed this B-17 might have changed course and flown over the same area if it encountered bad weather.
On July 10, 1944 search and rescue was notified of the missing aircraft and Catalinas operating out of Hollandia searched unsuccessfully along the coast from the Ramu River to Noemfoor Island for the next several days. Meanwhile, 5th Bomber Command rescue services unsuccessfully searched using B-24s and B-25s. Ground parties from the New Guinea Force (NGF) and Air-Sea Rescue in the Ramu River and Sepik River were notified to be on the lookout for the crew or aircraft, but nil sightings were made.
Memorials
The entire crew were officially declared dead on March 7, 1946. All are memorialized on the tablets of the missing at Manila American Cemetery. Lowe is listed on a "Lest We Forget" marker at Oakdale Cemetery, Hendersonville, NC.
Relatives
Leondus Hutchison (relative of Hutchison) adds:
"JB Hutchison, his farther (my granddad's brother) talked with a man in 1950s who was stationed with Daswon and he said that the B-17 used to ferry had a really bad history with its engines. And if they bailed out over the mountains or swamp then they was good as already dead. Doing research over the last two years, I have found archived documents pertaining to Japanese war crimes in New Guinea 1942-45. Just three months before 41-2464 went missing the Japanese captured a B-25 in the same area as noted MARC search area. All five U.S airmen were executed by the Japanese after being captured, a familiar but true account of many Army Air Force crews captured by the Japanese. What really happened to the crew and passengers of 41-2464? Engine failure? Japanese AA? Hit a mountain due to bad weather?"
