Ahab Stemple log cabin is still standing
The Stemples of Calhoun came from Preston and Barbour County areas of the state. Issac Stemple came to Calhoun in the 1800s.
His son Ahab married Mary Carpenter in 1850, his original log cabin still stands just off Rowels Run. They were parents of eleven children.
