This stone is an oblisk abut 5 ft tall with a small stone on each side. One reads “Mother” and the other “Father”. Stainback family researchers have been unable to confirm that William's middle name was 'Ruric.' Additionally, although a document prepared in the 1930s by William's great-grandson and genealogist Dr. Arthur H. Stainback indicates that he was William Richard Stainback, no where does he reveal the source of that information.
William Ruric Stainback married Mary Caroline Mason, CWS f BCV, pp. 358, 521, 523.
