Subject:John Stanley Near Bradfield, Yorkshire West Riding
 I have traced my lineage back to John Stanley (b. 1836-1838) near Bradfield (oughtibridge) Yorkshire. John married Mary Holroyd and had 2 sons (William and Henry) near Darnall, Sheffield. I'd be interested in hearing from potential relatives. John, Mary and the 2 sons immigrated to the united states. They initially spent time in Rhode Island (3 years), and then moved to Dixon, Illinois. I'm the 5th generation from John's line. I would love to hear from anyone from that area who may be a relative. Thanks - Jay Stanley

Subject:My Grandfather, Daniel Eber Stanley Millis, Son of Sylvester Stanley, grandson of Thomas Baker Stanley
 My grandfather, Daniel, born 1874 in Mich., Newaygo Cty., USA. His father, Sylvester, born 1831, Bayham, Ontario, Canada. His grandfather, Thomas Baker Stanley, born 1799 New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, but died in Port Huron, Mich. His great-grandfather, a John Stanley, born 1758/59 Westchester Cty., NY , His great-grandmother, Hannah Baker. His great-great-grandfather a John Stanley. G-g-grandmother is Francis Crafford. No details on the last two. Just starting to research the Stanley connection. Have not found information in the guestbook, yet. Most of what I have is through Ancestry and family stories-accuracy not guaranteed. My great-grandmother, Sylvester's second wife left with Everett Millis, changed Daniel's (and his sister, Ida's) last name to Millis. My father is Daniel's son and therefore, I believe, part of the Stanley line. I may find more information in your guestbook, if there is even a connection. Can't tell, yet. Thank you for any clues anyone might provide. Cynthia Millis

 I have tried to find out about my grgrgr grandfather. The history shows him in 1820 in Monroe County, VA with his son John. John married Mary Elizabeth Ellison in 1820.They had about 6 children. One of the children was Robert Stanley my gr grandfather. Mary died about 1840 and John, J0seph, and the children moved to Cabell County. John and Joseph remarried. Joseph died in abt 1840 and John died abt 1860. On ancestry, Joseph's father is named as Nathaniel. An older Aunt told me they were from Roanoke, VA. I have other relatives that have searched too. I hope you can help us. Thanks, Jane

Subject:Stanley Family In Broadway, Worcestershire
 Interestingly I have located my Great, Great, Great, Grandad who was William Stanley, living at the time of the 1861 Census in the Bakers Arms, High Street, Broadway, Worcs. Obviously it doesn't exist anymore, but at the time he was living with his wife Martha, sons William, Job, Thomas & Samuel and daughters Sarah and Martha. One huge family. Also on the census there is a beautifully named daughter Minnea Stanley who was a granddaughter, but whose child it was I do not know. Right now I am enjoying discovering my long lost ancesters. Just thought I would share my story :)
