"Joann was the daughter of Pelatiah and Naomi (Warren) Kimball. Joann married Moses Stacy on March 7, 1824 in Ashford, Ct. Joann was a lineal descendant through her mother of General Joseph Warren, the hero of Bunker Hill. "In 1835, on year after the Churchill family’s arrival to the area, Moses Stacy, a native of Massachusetts, arrived with his wife Joann Kimball. Stacy purchased land south of what is now Elm Street and built a log cabin. In 1846 Moses Stacy purchased 14 acres just north of his original claim (on the south side of Geneva Road) and built a tavern to accommodate the increasing number of travelers. Stacy’s tavern, which Moses enlarged shortly after it was completed, also served as the residence for the Stacy family. The log cabin, which sat on what is now Main Street, was moved west of the tavern to provide additional lodging space.  Philo Stacy, Moses’ son, re-called that his father charged lodgers “fifty cents for supper, lodging and breakfast, and two horses to hay...he well remembered taking in as much as fifty dollars a morning after the hospitable farmhouse had been crowded for dinner and shelter overnight.”

(Glen Ellyn, A. Village Remembered, p. 13)

Soon after the establishment of the tavern, Five Corners (which had also been referred to as Fish’s Corners) became known as Stacy’s Corners."
