The following biography is by Teresa Bennettfifth great granddaughter.
Hezekiah Stout Sr, son of Benjamin and Rebecca Doolhagen Stout, was born in Middletown, NJ in 1762 and died before 1848 an was buried at his cabin there  David B Kuhl states in "Herbert Powers Descendants," that he died in Tennessee. Professor T Marcellus Stout, son of Robert and Sarah Stout Marshall, stated that his great grandmother said they had lived in French Board Tennesee where he kept the ferry on the Boone Road in Transylvania.
He married Mary Powers, daughter of John and Prudence (White) Powers, October 29 1789.
Hezekiah Sr and Mary Powers Stout were the parents of
Samuel Lee Stout 1795- 1843  m Elizabeth Stump
Rebecca Jane Stout 1796–1884 m Samuel Morris White 1790–1827 22 Jan 1816 • Gee Lick Run, West Virginia, United States
After the death of Mary Powers, the mother of his children, d about 1800, he married (2) Margaret McCally August 4 1801
He settled in what would be Stout's Mill, Gilmer County, built a cabin, a grist mill and raised a family of eight. By 1850 his land was in the control of Hezekiah Jr and more about him may be found here.
This researcher has attributed the nickname "Mill Founder" to differentiate him from the others. Lance Martin
The year of the birth of the children was calculated from the 1810 Harrison and 1850 Gilmer County WV Censuses.
Thank you Sharon West for pointing out that: There is conclusive evidence that this Hezekiah Stout (Stout-298) did not marry Sarah (Cline) Stout as she bought land October 29 1789 the same day he is said to have married Mary Powers
