Stalnaker Family Association
updated 5/10/15
The Stalnaker Family Association was formed in 1979. The organization's purpose is to promote and foster relationships among the descendents of Jacob Stalnaker (1739 - 1791) and preserve family history. We promote genealogical research and provide information to those interested.

A book written by Cecil E. Stalnaker titled "A Chronology of the Stalnaker Family in America" was published to help preserve this history. You may purchase a copy of this hardbound book for $30.00 if you are a member. For membership information click here.

In addition, we are working with the Randolph County Historical Society (RCHS) to help restore the log cabin built by Jacob Stalnaker Jr. in approximately 1795. The cabin is now completed and is open to the public as part of the Randolph County Museum.

Each July the Stalnaker Family Association holds it's annual reunion in Beverly, West Virginia. Stalnaker's from all over the United States attend and we invite you to join us. Check out the reunion photographs from previous years and plan to attend next year's reunion on the third weekend in July. The history day will be on Saturday at the Jacob Stalnaker Jr cabin with the annual meeting, potluck and auction at the Beverly Fire Department in historic Beverly on Sunday.
