William L. Stark and Ann Linsley
New Haven Probate records for 1836 (File number 9829) show that
Isaac Augur was
of William L. Stark,
a minor of about 16 years of age, on 17 August 1836.
This is undoubtedly the son of
Daniel Stark and
Eliza, who perhaps needed
a guardian after Daniel Stark abandoned his wife
(see the divorce papers).
Ann Linsley was the wife of William L. Stark. New Haven probate records
contain a packet for her, which indicates that she died 29 February 1892,
that Theodore A. Tuttle was appointed as the administrator of her estate,
and that she had one heir:
Estella E. Benton
of Atlanta, GA (her daughter).

grandmother's name was Estella Eliza, and William Louis was her father.
Her mother's brother was named Uriah Louis after his great great grandfather.
