My name is Yolanda Campbell Lifter and I have registered the surname Stoops with the Guild of One-Name Studies. I am also the Group Administrator of the Stoops Study project at Family Tree DNA. My goal is to identify every individual with this surname (as well as Stoop/Stope/Stopes).

To begin with, I plan to concentrate on the Stoops from Ohio, and then work on the other states. I have a large amount of Stoops data and it will take me a while to enter it. I will try to update this site at least once a month. I also will be adding tombstone photos in the future.

My 3rd great-grandmother was Elizabeth (Betsy) Stoops of Rockbridge County, Virginia. She married her first cousin, Benjamin Campbell, 11 March 1819, in Highland County, Ohio. She was the daughter of Philip Stoops and Ann McCormick of Rockbridge County, Virginia. Philip was born in New Castle County, Delaware, and served in the Revolutionary War. Members of their families came to southwestern Ohio in the early 1800s.

I am redesigning this site so some of the information that was here previously has been removed for now. If you have any questions about any Stoops individuals, please contact me.
