The following pages are a transcription of  STANLEY AND KINDRED FAMILIES” which was compiled by: Florence and John Guttery Jasper, Alabama, 1964. Joe Dickson painstakingly transcribed this family genealogy and posted it in the hopes of helping other Stanley Family researchers.  It is posted here with the permission of Joe Dickson. My ancestor was Mary J Salyer Stanley.  I have included an Ancestor Report of Mary J Stanley at the end after the index. Please note that the index is not complete. It is much better to use your browser’s find function.  I have kept the transcription as I received it except where noted. I do not have any other information on the Stanley family.

I received this book as a gift from my wife in the early 1960’s.

I have attempted to copy the book exactly as it was printed. Partway through I began to correct some obvious errors, such as changing Mch to Mar or March

Not wanting to make changes that would lose the original text, I still wanted to point out obvious errors or any additions to my family that were not in the original book. I put these changes in italics to indicate that these were my comments. Quite often, the authors would have their own notes and comments. This will not appear in italics.

I also wanted to keep track of the original page numbers. This was so that I could reference any questions by going back to the original page number. The setup of the page numbers however, and because of the smaller type font used, when printed on 8.5 x 11 inch standard paper, would only fill half a sheet. So therefore, I inserted the original page numbers in a different font, in a larger size and BOLD such as this: 12 I know this might be an annoyance while reading the data, but so be it.

There is not a copyright printed in the book and it is not my intention to take any credit for anything here. This was merely done to provide a history of the Stanley family as was supplied to the Gutterys and to make this information available to researchers looking for family ties. While most genealogy programs will not print birth dates of living individuals, I have no way of knowing who is alive and who is not. It could be presumed that anyone born before 1900 would be deceased, but this is not necessarily so. Since the book is in the public domain and has been for over 30 years. In the interest of genealogical research I have left the dates alone, that is as they were in the original book. I know that this book is in several different libraries, and copies are in the hands of many researchers all over the country. Many sincere researchers are not interested in embarrassing anyone by making their private affairs public

Also, while I have made an effort to check my entries for accuracy against the book, it is impossible to "catch" every one of them. Typos are bound to occur. especially in the dates and some name spellings. There are a lot of names with unusual spellings and I have tried to maintain the spellings exactly as they are in the original book. A lot of this information came from early census and Bible records and a lot of the recorders of this information had little schooling and would spell names as they sounded to them.

Another concern is the various Word Processors that various people have. This document was created using Microsoft WORD 6.0. When using other word processors such as WORD PERFECT - You may lose some formatting. WORD 6.0 does allow me to save the document in different formats. If you have Windows-95, you should be able to open the document in WORDPAD. If however, you cannot process the data, I will be happy to try a different format for you.

I hope anyone who benefits from this copy of the Stanley and Kindred Families will use proper discretion.    

 Thank you.      Joe Dickson  gisela1@rcn.com

Family Coat of Arms

Family of : Stanley


The name Stanley, also found as Standley, is English in origin. The meaning - one who came from Stanley, (stony meadow), the name of several places in England; dweller at a rocky meadow.


A stag’s head and neck couped argent attired or, the tongue hanging out gules.


None recorded. The older arms did not have mottoes.


Sir Bernard Burke’s The General Armory of England, Scotland, Ireland, Wales, 1884 ed. P. 962. Smith’s Dictionary of American Family Names.


Silver-charity, chastity, and clear conscience,

Blue - a Godly disposition.

Blue with silver - vigilance in service.

Blue with gold - a disposition to keep what one gets; joyful possessions of wealth.


The slanting bend was a commander’s scarf. The stag was the emblem of Christ, destroyer of serpents. As a symbol, it was politic, wise, musical, long lived and desirous of liberty and independence.

Notes recorded in Burke’s:

Stanley (Hooton, Co., Chester, bart. - descended from Adam de Aldithley, tem. Henry I., whose son, William de Aldithley, married Jane, only daughter and heir of Henry Stanley, of Stonely, of Thalk Co., Stafford, and having exchanged with his cousin, Adam de Aldithley, whose mother was Arabella, daughter and heir of Henry Stoneley, of Stoneley, the manor of Thalk for that of Stoneley, he assumed the surname of Stoneley, or Stanley; fifth in descent from him was Sir William Stanley, Lord of Stanley, temp. Richard II., who d. 1397, leaving with other issue, two sons: I. Sir William, heir; II. Sir John, K. G., ancestor of the Barons Stanley and the Earls of Derby. The elder son, Sir William Stanley, married Margaret, daughter and heir of William Hooton, Lord of Hooton, Co., Chester, tenth in descent from this marriage was Sir William Stanley, first bart. Of Hooton, created a bart 1662).

The arms have been borne and displayed by nearly all branches of the Stanley family, both in England and America, with only slight both in England and America, with only slight variation (usually in the crest).


We wish to thank the relatives who sent their family records and other data pertaining to the descendants of Lewis and Adah Stanley of South Carolina. Several we have never met personally. Regret we were unable to contact descendants of John and Jesse (?) Stanley, Lela S. Kilby, Elizabeth S. McCay and Anne S. Ledbetter, children of Lewis Stanley.

The records found on the following pages are far short of what we hoped for. Our research was done by several genealogists in South Carolina, Georgia, and other states.

To Mrs. W. B. Gandrud, Tuscaloosa, Ala., one of Alabama’s finest statisticians, we are grateful.

Also, the many Stanley’s, who shared vast data on their Stanley families. Mrs. Ben Konikoff (Gloria Stanley), many thanks for her family data, also Stanley records collected, and a copy of Hinshaw Quaker records on the Stanley’s.

To Mrs. Eugene A. Stanley, Savannah, Ga., and Mrs. Paul Burke Franklin, Gaffney, S.C., we are grateful, for the many records sent on the descendants of Thomas Stanley the immigrant to Virginia from England. Regret no family connection found, but all Stanley’s coming to America from England and Ireland were of the same English line.

Again, our sincere thanks to each and every one who in any way assisted in making this record a reality, and if errors have crept in, please pardon, not intentional on our part.

Origin of the Stanley’s in England


Adam de Stanley, brother of Liuf de Audley (who was father of Adam de Audley) was living temp. Stephen and Henry II. He was father of I. William, his heir, 2. Adam de Stanley, 3.

In 1405 he had a 12 commission in conjunction with Roger Leke, to seize on the city of York and its Liberties, and also upon the Isle of Man; and in the 7th Henry IV, being there treasure of the household to the King, obtained license to fortify a house at Liverpool, which he had newly built with embattled walls.

It is family tradition that three brothers, George, John, and Joshua Stanley "Hat Makers," came to Va. Long prior to the Am. Rev. From England and continued their trade in Va. One brother went up East, other two remained in the south. George the immigrant was our ancestor. Another branch of the family say George Stanley came from Ireland and settled in Georgetown, South Carolina.

In the Bible record one son not mentioned, his name was Jesse, and he went from South Carolina to Georgia. Lewis and Adah Stanley did have seven sons listed in the 1790 Census, 96th District. Spartanburg, S.C.

Lewis Stanley served in the American Revolution under George Washington, also tell of incidents to the family of Lewis, during the war, like when the "King’s men’ raided the home, took all bed linens even to the pallet little Annie was lying on very ill, and Lewis was home on sick leave with small pox; his wife kept him hidden out in the woods with only a cowhide for protection and other incidents have been handed down from generation to generation.

Family traditions can be helpful in research, yet confusing at times.

We know there once was a copy of the "family history" owned by Mr. Miles Stanley, grandson of Benjamin Stanley; Miles left no issue though he had a foster son. After several years got in touch with the wife of this foster son; she does not know anything concerning the book, which is most regretful as it could have proved the ancestors beyond any doubt.

The family is of unquestioned English origin, first spelled Stonlea, Stonelea, Stanlea, and finally Stanley. It was derived from Saxon "Stan" a stone, Lea a pasture or rugged meadow.

Some of the Stanley’s during the Rev. War were so 16 pro-American that they dropped the letter ‘n’ from the name, changing it to Staley, an Irish name. When Ga. Was chartered June 9, 1702, the crown of England named James Stanley, Earl of Derby, one of the trustees and at that time there was a James Stanley living in Jones County, North Carolina. This family later settled in Laurens County, Ga., a very prominent family.

In England the Stanley’s had titles; those in America were nonetheless great; many became prominent citizens, many served in the Rev. War, and in the wars later on down to W.W. II, Stanley’s served in many different branches.




Came to America Prior to American Revolution.

All we know concerning George Stanley our ancestor; is from an old Bible record belonging to a great great grandson, William Thomas Stanley (see later). The name of his wife unknown, also how many children, have proof of but one son, Lewis Stanley (see later).

From family legends, that oft repeated story found in families, "that three brothers, George, John, and Joshua Stanley, "Hatmakers," came from England and settled near Richmond, Virginia, and continued their trade. One of the brothers went up East, George and the other brother remained in the South."

Another family legend "George Stanley came to America from Ireland, and settled at Georgetown, South Carolina, and Georgetown was named for him."

The latter started probably as a joke and came down in the family.

Find the following records of one George Stanley of which there is no way of knowing if he is our ancestor, dates seem about right to have been.

"The only record in our file of George Stanley is where he is listed on a roll of the 1st Regiment, Continental Line as a private with notation "5th Regiment."

This gives no information concerning him, not even dates of service, and is simply proof that he had service in one of the continental Regiments. We checked our index to Wills, Index to Rev. File, S.C. Archives Dept. And find none for George Stanley." By F. M Hutson, Assistant to Director.

George Stanley deceased Inventory July 27, 1784. House- 18 hold goods only. Jacob McLendon, Jacob Bobbett, Hugh Gilmore, Appraisers. From "Early Records of Georgia, Wilkes County" by Grace Gillman Davidson, 1832, pub. By J. W. Burke, Macon Co., Ga., Vol. I, p. 41. Folio 20, Small Bk. Of Mixed Records, 1781-83.

This date 1784 could easily be right for the George Stanley we are interested in, as some of our Stanley kin went to Georgia.

The name George comes down in the descendants of George the immigrant, grandson, gr. Grandson, and gr. gr. Grandsons, even down to the present.

From the Bible belonging to his gr. Gr. Grandson William Thomas Stanley, born 2-5-1852, sent by his daughter, Mrs. John Elgin Roten, Itasca, Texas.

NOTE: One of Lewis Stanley’s sons not named in the record, his name said to have been Jesse, who went to Georgia from South Carolina. Lewis and Adah Stanley had seven sons listed in 1790 Census.

Since no birth dates or first names of the sons-in-law were given, no way of knowing order of birth, but, 19 from records found, Ezekiel Stanley eldest son. This Bible record appears to me to have come down from father to son. We know there was a history of this family owned by Mr. Miles Stanley, Midland, Texas, gr. gr. grandson, who died without issue, had a foster son who inherited his estate. The family history has been lost, which is regrettable as it held the answer to the family lineage.

The first Stanley to come to America was Robert Stanley who came 1620 to Va. Aged 27 on the ship Abigail. The next was Morrison Stanley who came to Va. 1624 aged 26 on ship Hopewell. Then a John Stanley came 1635 to Conn. A John Stanley also came about this time to Maryland.


Lewis Stanley, son of George Stanley, was born ca. 1750, and the only child of whom we have any record, believe there were other children.

Lewis Stanley married Adah --------, who may have been the daughter to James Martin Esq. Of York Co., S.C.

Their children: sons, Ezekiel, George, Lewis Jr., John, Jesse Martin (?), Benjamin, Joshua David; daughters, Lela, Elizabeth "Betsy." Annie, and Rhoda Stanley. Jesse Martin was not named in the Bible record sent, from family traditions one son was named Jesse (see later).

The first deed to Lewis Stanley (Standley) was from James Martin Esq. Of York County to lands on Cherokee Cr., then Spartanburg District. (Would now be in Cherokee County., S.C.) This was in 1793 for 250 acres in Deed Book E, page 154 (note think this was an E - if not, could be an F) R.M.C. Office for Spartanburg, County., S.C. bounded by James Ballenger. This only deed to Lewis Stanley.

In 1807 Lewis Stanley and wife Ada make deed to the above tract acquired from James Martin Esq. To Major Hancock Deed Book p-212 not recorded till 1817. It then bounded Ezekiel Stanley deceased; Charles Hester; John Hester and Wm. Londen. 20 Witnesses were Daniel McCay and John Williams. The deed probated May, 1810. You will also find John Williams and Daniel McCay later in Anderson County, S.C.

File 1800 Spartanburg Co., S.C., contains the will of Ezekiel Stanley, signed July 17, 1805, recorded Aug. 3, 1805. Witness: Lewis Stanley, George Stanley, and Daniel McCay, (see will of Ezekiel Stanley)

Earliest known record concerning a Lewis Standley-Stanley in Census of South Carolina and Her People, compiled by Thorn Rathburn, Liberty, S.C. We have tried several times to get this record, never any reply - the date 1777, assume to be the date of record.


1790-Lewis Stanley, 4 white males over 16; including head of family: 4 white males under 16; and 5 females.

1800-Spartanburg Co., S.C. Roll #50; Lewis Stanley 1 male 45 & up; 2 males to 16; 3 males to 10; 1 female 45 & up; 3 females to 16.

1810-Pendleton Co., S.C. Lewis Stanley 1 male 45 & up; 1 male 16-26; 2 males 10-16; 1 female 45 & up; 1 female 16-26; 2 females 10-16. (Last census found).

NOTE: by 1800-two sons and one daughter were married and by 1810 four sons were married.

On July 7, 1805, Lewis Stanley, son George Stanley and son-in-law, Daniel McCay witnessed the will of Ezekiel Stanley (see Ezekiel Stanley’s will). From records find many deeds by and to Lewis Stanley in Pendleton Co., S.C. 21 Records at Anderson, S.C., Clerk of Court (From 1790 until 1828 old Pendleton District. Then the northern part was set up into Pickens Co., S.C.)

Bk. L. P. 240 - Lewis & wife Adah Stanley, $200 to Daniel McCay 150 acres (grand to James Waters, Nov. 30, 1799) bounded by George Stanley Nov. 23, 1811, Wit: George Stanley (see deeds on page ).

The last deeds made by Lewis Stanley Sr.: Book M, p 312, Lewis Stanley Sr. Love to wife Adah Stanley furniture, cattle, hogs 8-24-1814, wit: Daniel McCay.

Bk. M. P. 2312 Lewis Stanley Sr. Love to sons David & John 250 acres bounded by James Morris, Mathew Clark, Lewis Stanley, 8-29-1814, wit: Daniel McCay. Seems Lewis Stanley had already given land to the other children.

One genealogist doing research thinks Lewis moved to Georgia (no will or estate administrator. Been found and he was a large land owner, but from the deeds of love, would seem he was getting his affairs in order, probably in failing health).

From family traditions, Lewis Stanley . Served in the American Revolution, and was at home on leave ill from small pox. The Redcoats were nearby, his wife kept him hidden and in the woods, placing a cowhide over him for protection from the rain, the soldiers took all the bed lines even to the quilt on which little Annie lay ill.

So far been unable to find any Revolutionary service record for Lewis Stanley which by no means implies he did not serve; many men served of whom record has never been found.

It’s said "That some of the Stanley’s were so pro-American, that they dropped the letter N in the name, making the name Irish." Staley.

This history of Lewis Stanley and his descendants will 22 appear like an analysis of records, in fact it is, as all those who could tell us anything have passed on many years ago, with only a few legends to work on. Had to depend on data of record, as many had the same first name, has complicated our research. Does seem that the Stanley’s who were in Spartanburg later in Pendleton were all of the same family.

Only two sons of Lewis and Adah Stanley came to Alabama, Benjamin and Joshua David Stanley.

A very close relationship has existed and continues between the descendants of George Stanley who went to Indiana and those of Ezekiel Stanley Jr., who went from South Carolina to Cobb Co., Ga.

Children of Lewis Stanley, Sr., and wife Adah ---------- of whom we find records of their descendants as follows: Ezekiel, Rhoda, George, Lewis Jr., Benjamin and Joshua David Stanley.

John Stanley m. __________, no records other than deeds.

Jesse Martin (?) Stanley went to Georgia, no other data.

Lela Stanley married Mr. Kilby, no other data.

Annie Stanley married Mr. Ledbetter, son of Daniel and the brother of Rhoda who married Ezekiel Stanley I.

Elizabeth "Betsy" Stanley married Daniel McCay, find deeds from and to them, also where Daniel McCay witnessed several deeds.

Martin McCay wit. A deed from George Newell to Ezekiel Stanley Aug. 2, 1834, probably the son of Daniel McCay, and Elizabeth Stanley, this name 23 Martin basis of my assumption.

Re: Stanley Data

I have made a search of the records in South Carolina and Georgia for your Stanley kin. I will in few days send you my complete report on what I have found. I am enclosing two sheets, which you will kindly look over, and you will see the Stanley’s and their kin located in these sheets. First, Lewis Stanley (also spelled Standley) in the records here was the first we have any record of being in Spartanburg, County, S.C. He is listed here in 1790 US Census with family of 4 males over 16, 4 males under 16 and 5 females. This 1790 Census record was not completed till year 1792. This would make Lewis Stanley have children prior to the Revolution as the sons over 16 at 1790 Census would have to have been born no later than 1776 (even considering the 1790 census not completed till 1792) and there were 3 males in this class besides himself. This itself indicates Lewis Stanley as born prior to 1750. We have no record of his holding property in Spartanburg County until a deed to him in 1793 to 250 acres on Cherokee Cr. Spartanburg County acquired from James Martin Esq. Of York County. S.C. bounded by James Ballenger. The name was spelled Standley in this deed.

Later on Lewis Stanley and wife Adah deed this same land, or 230 acres of same, to Major Hancock in 1807, but this deed not probated till 1810 nor recorded till 1817. We find record of Lewis Stanley in this county up until 1810 when he no longer appears of record here but appears to have moved to Pendleton District. (Now Anderson County. S.C.) and from 1811 till 1814 the records find him there and then no longer there after 1814 and appears he moved to 24 Georgia. There being no record in Anderson County, S.C. of his death, and he being a landowner, it would appear he did not die there.

Every indication is that the Stanley’s came to S.C. from Ga. Settled in Spartanburg and Pendleton County (now Anderson County. Part) then left S.C., and moved c 1814 to Cobb County Ga. -- George Stanley with family going to Indiana. Some leaving Ga. And going on to Ala.

James Martin Esq. May have been related to Lewis Stanley and could have been his father-in-law. I say this because the next deed is from James Martin of Rutherford County. N.C. to Ezekiel Standley which appears to be the eldest son of Lewis Stanley made in 1808. This is just a surmise but later in this Lewis Stanley line we find a Martin Stanley.

When we turn to the records of Old Washington District. (Which was made up of Anderson, Pickens, Oconee and Greenville County. Till 1799) we find that Ezekiel Stanley and his wife Rhoda are making deeds there in 1798 and were apparently living there at that time - this was what later became Pendleton District. We find Ezekiel Stanley still in Washington District. 1799 as he there with deed to Daniel Ledbetter. Daniel Ledbetter appears to be the man who married Ann Stanley, daughter of Lewis Stanley.

From 1799 till 1811 there are in Pendleton or Washington County no records on the Stanley family.

Then starting in year 1811 through years 1814 we note that Lewis Stanley has moved from Spartanburg District. S.C. to Pendleton District. And he and wife make deeds to their children and in-laws and by the year 1814 they all appear to have left, but Ezekiel Stanley who appears to have stayed there until 1834 when he moved to Cobb County, Ga. Having married Margaret Holland, daughter of Hugh Holland of 25 Anderson District. In 1834. This Ezekiel had son B. M. Stanley, m Francis Williams, p. 756 History. Cobb County., and two sons in Civil War, William P. Stanley and James Felton Stanley (see History. Of Cobb County.) one of his daughters. Eliza m Marcus L. Green.

We find their kin in Anderson County the Ledbetters, Daniel McCay, Elijah Gibson, Hollands, Wiley Roberts. Smiths making deeds and witnessed. Deeds there. It is to Cobb County. Ga. The Stanley’s went from Anderson County. In the year 1814, except Ezekiel Stanley, who stayed till 1834 in Anderson and George Stanley, who moved about this time to Indiana.

It appears that Green County, Ga. And Cobb County, Ga. Are the places that the Stanley came from to S.C. and returned to.

Allied Families from S.C. to Cobb County. Ga.

KILBY -- William J. Kilby of Cobb County Ga., tailor married Jane Caruthers Young, daughter of Samuel Young of Abbeville County., S.C. and wife Martha Wilson Long. Her sister, Rebbeca Harris Young, married Ezekiel Calhoun Harris of Cobb County Ga., and that had daughter.

HOLLAND -- Frances Harris m Dr. Hayne Holland originally of Anderson County, S.C. who moved to Cobb County, Ga. 1850. Ezekiel Calhoun Harris was son of John Harris and wife Mary Shachelford of Abbeville County (son of Maj. Thos. Harris and wife Fannie Hamilton of Abbeville County.)

BALLENGER -- The Reeds came from S.C. to Cobb County., Ga. Where Wm. Barr Reed m Adeline Kemp, daughter. Of Solomon Kemp and Clary Benson. The Kemps also m Into the Kilby family in Cobb County., Ga.

All of the above families which were connected in some 26 way with the Stanley family of Cobb County came from S.C. as did the Anderson family, the Burt family and the Latimer family.

Lewis Stanley appears to have left Anderson County, S.C. in year 1814 and appears to have gone to Ga. Since Cobb County, Ga. Was not organized until 1835 they must have gone to some other place in Ga. And moved to Cobb around 1835. I find an old list of those who acquired land in Milledge, Ga. In 1817, and find Willis Roberts one of those who acquired land there. No Stanley’s or other names connected with Stanley’s are listed. Willis Roberts was father of Wiley Roberts who m Rhoda Stanley. Since no record of Lewis Stanley having died and leaving an Estate in Anderson County, S.C. and he a large landowner it appears that he must have died after leaving South Carolina. It appears from several marriages of Stanley’s that Jasper County, Ga. May be where they first went.

The Stanley’s were in Anderson County related in some way to the Gibson family there.


CALHOUN -- Alexander Calhoun born Antrim County, Ire., settled first c 1795 Old Pendleton District., S.C. MD Susanah Barber (d 1827). Alexander Calhoun died there 1825, buried Roberts Church. They both left Wills. Their children:

1. Alexander Calhoun Jr. Md. Fanny H. Leat.

2. Mary Calhoun m George Campbell.

3. George Calhoun n.f.r.

6. David Calhoun moved prior to 1827 to Franklin County., Ga. Md. Martha M

7. Elizabeth Calhoun m Maj. Jackson Gilmer, b. 1794, son of Robert Gilmer and Nancy Martin.

ROBERTS-JOHNS. In 1863 James Johns died in Oconee County., S.C., (Being portion of Old Pendleton District., S.C.) leaving as his sole heirs his three sons, Samuel H. Johns, James A. Johns and John B. Johns. John B. Johns died in 1864 leaving his widow M. Jane Johns and infant daughter Lila B. Johns. The widow M. Jane Johns moved in 1865 to Ga. And the following year she married there to John Roberts.

Who M. Jane Johns was prior to marriage with John B. Johns was not given but she m 2nd John Roberts.

Found in case Roberts vs. Johns 16 S.C. 171.

NOTE: Your Stanley family married the Roberts-Johns-Ledbettors-Millers-Kilbys. It also appears they must have been related to the Martins as two of the early Deeds to them in Spartanburg County was from James Martin.

We also find Abner Ledbettor above who m Miss Calhoun as witness to Deeds in Anderson County., S.C.

We find in Cobb County, Ga. These related families Kilby-Young-Harris-Holland-Ballenger-Green-Roberts-Johns-Benson-Kemps.


The first deed to Lewis Stanley (Standley) was from James Martin Esq. Of York County to lands on Cherokee Cr. Then Spartanburg Districts (would now be in Cherokee County., S.C.) This was in 1793 for 250 acres in deed book F, p,. 154 R.M.C. Office for Spartanburg County., S.C. bounded by James Ballenger. This only deed to Lewis Stanley.

File 1800 contains the will of Ezekiel Stanley. This will was signed on 7-7-1805. Ezekiel willed all of his 28 estate to his wife Rhoda during her life, then to go to his children unnamed. The will was witnessed by Lewis Stanley, George Stanley and Daniel McCay. It was filed for record Aug. 3, 1805, indicating that Ezekiel had died between 7-17- and 8-3-1805.

Letters of administrator. Were granted to Rhoda Stanley on 2-19-1806. A notation in 1808 shows that Rhoda was m. To Jacob Gordian (Gordon). In 1809 Charles Hester was appointed administrator. In 1812 he paid for schooling of children $5.43. The final paper in the file was dated 2-2-1819 "Due the estate $168.43." There was no list of heirs or names of children given.

The index of deeds shows four deeds made to Ezekiel on Thickety Creek and Cherokee Creek. (This is now in Cherokee County).

There are no deeds to Lewis or Benjamin or any Stanley other than Ezekiel. These were dated 1792, 1793, 1799 and 1801.

There is one deed from Adah and Lewis Stanley to Major Hancock date 2-2-1807 and recorded in Book P. P. 212.

This deed was for 230 acres of land on Cherokee Creek bounded by Ezekiel Stanley, DEC’D. Charles Hester, Wm. Fondren, Jesse Fondren and John Hester. The consideration was $300. Witnesses were: Daniel McCay and Joh. Wms. On May 18, 1810 John Williams made affidavit that he witnessed this deed; his affidavit signed before John Lipscomb. J.Q.

These evidently are your folk, but it is too bad there are no further records. I am sorry I could find nothing more.

(A relationship seems to exist between Lewis, George, and the Ezekiel Stanley here, believe the Ezekiel 29 Stanley who made his will in 1805 to be a brother of Lewis Stanley, Sr. His first son was named Ezekiel. Mrs. J. F. Brooks).

In 1807 Lewis Stanley and wife Ada make deed to the above tract acquired from James Martin Esq. To Major Hancock, Deed Bk. P-212, not recorded till 1817. It then bounded Ezekiel Stanley deceased; Charles Hester; John Hester and Wm. Londen. Witn. Were Daniel McCay and John Williams. The deed probated May, 1810. You will also find John Williams and Daniel McCay later in Anderson County, S.C.

NOTE: from Mrs. John Guttery: Two pages missing here from the manuscript, lost by a publisher.

........Learn from the Records here at Spartanburg that his wife was Rhoda and that she was Rhoda Ledbetter, daughter. Of Daniel Ledbetter from early records I have of the Ledbetters they came to Pendleton District., S.C., and early married into the Calhoun family). The next record we have of Ezekiel Stanley we have in Spartanburg County, S.C. is deed from Andrew Hopkins of Spartanburg County, S.C. to Ezekiel Stanley of Pendleton District., S.C. made 17 August 1799. Recorded in Deed Bk. F, p. 450, R.M.C. Office for Spartanburg County, S.C. to 143 acres of land on Cherokee Cr. Waters of Broad R. (This land would be now in Cherokee County., S.C.)

Before I give the will of this Ezekiel Stanley made in Spartanburg County, S.C. in 1805 I will say that this Ezekiel Stanley is not in S.C. in 1790 U.S. Census but must have been in Ga. (As that is the only state of original 13 we do not have the 1790 census here) and that is where the 1792 deed to him says he was in Green County, Ga. He appears to have left Ga. And come to Pendleton District. S.C. (now Anderson County.) as there are many records of him and his wife there and later of his children but he does not deed in 1792 and 1799 in Spartanburg County, S.C. and he died there in 1805. We find in Deed Book C, p. 429 Washington District., Pendleton County Deed from Joel Ledbetter and wife Kitty to Ezekiel Stanley 9-28-1798 witnessed. Daniel Ledbetter. Then on page 430 Deed Bk. C is deed of Ezekiel Stanley and wife Rhoda to Peter Keys dated Sept. 29, 1798. Then in same Deed Bk. C, p. 481 Deed to Daniel Ledbetter from Stephen and Elizabeth Strange-Witness was Ezekiel Stanley. We find deeds then to Ezekiel’s children and kin all through the Anderson County Records till around 1850. When Ezekiel Stanley and wife Rhoda Ledbetter moved to Spartanburg I am not sure but prob. About 1799 and he died here in 1805.

Deed 25th March 1808 from James Martin of North Carolina County of Lincoln to 139 acres in Spartanburg County 34 Cherokee Cr. Bounded by lands of Lewis Stanley, Ezekiel Stanley, and Richard Arnold. This Deed witnessed. By Lewis Stanley and Rhoda Stanley and on 16 May, 1808, Lewis Stanley goes before George Lamkin J.P. to probate this deed.

We find Lewis Standley-Stanley here in this County at least till May 1808 and then he must have left and gone to Pendleton County which at that time made up of present Anderson-Pickens-Oconee Counties. All of the territory between Broad river west to Georgia line was from 1768 till 1783 known as Old 96 District. With C. H. At Cambridge - then 1783 divided into counties and all of Abbeville.....

NOTE: Not known how many pages lost here.

The Stanley’s came from England and they were Earls of Derby and Lord Stanley’s there. I come directly through them as follows: my mother was Clara Belle Douglass (of Red Douglass clan of Scotland) and her grandmother Douglass Francis Jester Hardy whose ancestor John Hardy came 1660 to Isle of Wight County, Virginia, from England. They go back to Sir John Hardy Lord Mayor of London whose wife was Margaret de la Pole, daughter of Richard de La Pole, Earl of Suffolk and his wife Lady Mary de Stanley, daughter of George de Stanley, Earl of Derby, Surety of Magna Charta. You can find in Burke’s Peerage, this line with coat of arms, etc.

You refer to the Stanley’s of Columbia, S.C. Before giving anything on your line, I will give the following on other Stanley lines in early S.C. In old Cheraw District. There was a Revolutionary soldier named Moses Stanley, and he is listed as Pvt. In Greggs History of Old Cheraw. We know nothing more about him. However, in 1790 U.S. Census of Cheraw 35 District., S.C. is listed Capt. Samuel Stanley born in Va. (New Kent County, I think) and was Capt. In Rev. War in Va., moved thence to Cheraw and then to Columbia, S.C. He died there about 1813 and his wife was a Miss Hendricks, daughter. Of Capt. William Hendricks a Rev. Soldier from Cheraw. They had two sons, Robert Hendricks Stanley and William Byrd Stanley and a daughter. Who m. Henry McGowan, daughter. Elizabeth m. Trapp, and daughter. Mary who married 4 times, first to Wm. Howell; 2nd to Dr. Robert Hendricks; 3rd to _____Williamson, and fourth William Hilligus of Charleston. In 1850 this lady filed an affidavit that she was the niece of my g.g.grandfather Capt. Robert Paslay, Rev. Soldier, and that she at that time living in Cheraw district S.C. this affidavit in Washington, D.C., in Capt. Robert Paslay Revolutionary File R. 7988. In 1790 Capt. Robert Paslay 2nd married Elizabeth Crocker. His first wife was Sarah (which I take to be Hendricks, being his niece makes me say that) I come from the 2nd wife Elizabeth Crocker.

Robert Hendricks Stanley and another son William Byrd Stanley, who was long time Mayor of Columbia, S.C., about the time of the Civil War. This family long ran the Stanley China shop in Columbia, S.C., and they are buried in the Stanley Family graveyard in Columbia, S.C. In Vol. 4: Wallace ‘History. Of South Carolina’ there is a Genealogy of this family.

There was an early Methodist of S.C., Rev. Ledbetter also. They are found in History of Methodism in S.C., by Betts.

Ezekiel Stanley I, born ca. 1774 or earlier, and probably the eldest son of Lewis and Adah Stanley, Spartanburg and Pendleton Co.’s S.C. Ezekiel died in Spartanburg Co., S.C., between July 17, 1805 and Aug. 3, 1805, married Rhoda, daughter. Of Daniel Ledbetter (See data by Mrs. 36 J. W. Thomas)., Their children: Isham Stanley, b July 12, 1801, Elizabeth Stanley, b June 2, 1803, Winnifred Stanley, b ______m Elijah Gibson, and Ezekiel b May 6, 1805. (See later)

Ezekiel Stanley I, went to Spartanburg District., from Greene Co., Ga., about 1798. He is not found in 1790 census of any state, Georgia 1790 census not in existence today.

The first record found of this family was from Green County, Ga., in 1792 acquiring land in Spartanburg County, S.C. in 1792 thence to the founder died in Spartanburg County in 1805. From 1792 till 1805 he appears in Spartanburg and Pendleton District. (Now Anderson County). Where he got to Greene County, Ga. Was organized about 1780 cut from the larger territory of old Washington County, Ga. Georgia founded 1732 by Gen. Oglethorpe. However, by 1790 many people came to Ga. From the states of Pa., Va., N.C., S.C., Md. And from N.E. states.

We have reasons to believe he was the son of Lewis Stanley, as his eldest son was Ezekiel and the close relationship which existed and continues to the present day among his descendants and those of George and Elizabeth (Smith) Stanley of Indiana. Doubts will creep in and do here, but until we find more proof we shall believe Ezekiel to be the eldest son of Lewis Stanley Sr. And wife Adah.

Note: Lewis Stanley, his son George and son-in-law Daniel McCay witnessed the will of Ezekiel in 1805. In File 1800 Spartanburg, S.C., contains the will of Ezekiel Stanley, signed July 17, 1805, willed all his property to his wife Rhoda Stanley, during her life, then to his children, unnamed. Recorded Aug. 3, 1805, indicating that Ezekiel died between July 17 and Aug. 1805. 37

Letters of Admr. Were granted to Rhoda Stanley on Feb. 19, 1806, a notation in 1808 shows that Rhoda Stanley was married to Jacob Gordon in 1808. Charles Hester was appointed Admr. In 1802, he paid for schooling of the children $5.43. The final papers in the File dated Feb. 2, ....... (Note: a page missing here.)

Information from Mrs. J. W. Thomas (Ora Mason Thomas) age 75, contained in letter directed to Mrs. Mae Runyan Swanson, dated October 12, 1960. Mrs. Thomas’ address is 3137 Amherst Street, Dallas, Texas.

(Lewis) Isham Stanley and Daniel Ledbetter were born in England in the vicinity of Liverpool. They came together to the United States, landing in Charleston, South Carolina, and later settling in the Spartaburg district where they remained and reared their families.

A son of Daniel Ledbetter, Daniel II, was born in the late 1740’s and so was 30 years old when he became a soldier in the Revolutionary War. He served the entire 7 years. His daughter, Rhoda, was married to Isham Stanley II (Note: This should be Ezekiel Stanley) and they became the parents of four children: Isham III, Elizabeth (*), Winifred and Ezekiel (**) (Note: also Anna, William and Nancy)

(*) Elizabeth was born June 2, 1803, and was married to Churchill Mason on December 23, 1824, she died May 28, 1855. (Elizabeth was the grandmother of Ora Mason Thomas, who furnished this information).

(*) Isham Stanley II died early in life and Rhoda then married Daniel Gordon (Note: I don’t know how Jacob Gordon now becomes Daniel Gordon unless he was Jacob Daniel Gordon or Daniel Jacob Gordon) and they had four more children: Daniel II, William, Rhoda and Tempe. Mrs. Betsy Weatherly and Mrs. Nancy Landrum were daughters of Daniel Gordon II and both came to Texas to visit in the home of Mrs. Thomas when she was a child. Lynn Landrum, a grandson of Mrs. Nancy Landrum, lives in Dallas, Texas, and is a popular columnist on the Dallas News.

(**) Ezekiel Stanley was the great-grandfather of Mrs. Mae Runyan Swanson to whom the above letter was addressed, he married Margaret Ann Holland and their descendants are 38 cataloged in genealogy book, "Our Kin" by W. H. Manning, Jr. And Edna Anderson Manning of Barnwell, South Carolina, copyrighted in 1958 and published by Walton Printing Company, Augusta, Georgia (pp 941-875).

*The name may have been Isham Ezekiel Stanley but he signed his "Will" Ezekiel Stanley. We also find other records showing his name as Ezekiel, often in families their ancestors are spoken of by a first or last name (F.K.G.)

Dear Mrs. Guttery:

...Some of the information I sent Mrs. Swanson may be inaccurate. It came to my family a long time ago from two cousins, much older than I, Mollie Carruth and Lizzie Price Brooks. I am not sure what their source was, mostly from word of mouth from their parents. I suspect, tho, they may have had some Bible records. All of my father’s family came to Texas and all died in Texas, but I never knew any of them intimately except the Jacksons (Aunt Mina) who lived in our home town.

My father being the youngest had the youngest children. All of my first cousins are dead and, since last year when I lost my two remaining brothers, within months of each other there are two of my generation left: myself and my sister who lives in Miami.

I am nearly 78 and she is 74. It has been interesting to me to note the strong Stanley characteristics so apparent among my father’s relations, including my own brothers and sisters, and even my children and grandchildren. I am 39 convinced that the Stanley "breed" will never die out, my father was an outstanding example and my sister is just like him, one of my two daughters fits the pattern to a T, and tho she has no children, my other daughter has a child who is a real throwback.

It is indeed a family to be proud of.

/S/ Ora Mason Thomas

* ISHAM STANLEY. A lad of 16 joined the Confederate Army under Brig. Gen. Robert C. Tyler and was present when Ft. Tyler fell to the enemy at the Battle of West Point, April 16, 1865. On his 17th birthday. Was standing near the General when he was wounded. The Company was taken prisoners and marched to Macon, Ga., in due time were released by the Yankees and returned home.

In later years he wrote a paper based on his experience as a "boy" soldier and prisoner of War, this paper was written for the local chapter of U.D.C.

This battle was fought after Lee’s surrender for word had not reached the Fort of the surrender.

Dr. Coleman Simmons - - great grandson of Isham’s sister -- Lucretia (Stanley) Wallis, has restored the house and lives with his family in the house which withstood the battle and marks the site of Ft. Tyler.



The descendants of Ezekiel Stanley II, and his wife Margaret Ann (Peggy) Holland Stanley are scattered over the fifty states of the United States and some in service stationed on foreign soil. During the life time of the first generation there were no reunions and the only time the brothers, sisters and cousins were together was for weddings or funerals, and consequently as time passed contacts were lost and relatives did not know each other. In 1960 the first reunion was organized. After months of search, letter writing, newspaper advertising a long-time dream came to pass, when one hundred and fifty of these descendants gathered at Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park on July 3, for the first reunion. At that time there were twenty nine second generation descendants living and sixteen were present for that first reunion.

That first year it was mentioned that the group should have some objective, and the dearest to the heart of most of the group was that the grave of Margaret Holland Stanley be marked. No thing definite was done until the 1963 reunion when the group voted to form the Stanley Memorial Association and mark our ancestor’s grave. The money to be donated by as many of the relatives as the committee could contact.

The committee found the marker of Ezekiel to be in such poor condition that marble companies said it would be a waste of money to try to repair, so there will be a new one for his grave, matching the one to be placed for Margaret and one for the unmarried daughter Sallie who is buried in this same lot in the Mars Hill Cemetery, near Acworth in Cobb County, Georgia. The three markers to be small and not easy to topple over or wear with time. These markers were dedicated at the 1964 reunion.


From Rilla Stanley (Mrs. S. F. Brinkley), Smyrna, Ga.; "When I was about 14 years old during the Re-construction period after the War, a letter came to my grandfather (Ezekiel Stanley) from the old Earl in England asking that he come to England to help settle the estates. He wanted my father to go but he could not. They had all lost their money and none could go. At that time you could get the land, but you could not sell it or bring any money to America from England.

"I know someone that knew the place in England. She said ‘Three brothers came to America and one stayed in England.’"

The task of compiling a history of the family of the Stanley’s (Ezekiel) has been a difficult one due to the existence of so few records. First, the home burned where Ezekiel and Margaret lived, set fire by the children Sallie and Liza with Aunt Puss’s daughter from candles while looking for scraps to make doll clothes soon after the new house was completed after coming to Cobb Co., Georgia. Aunt Puss was the slave given to Margaret when she married by her father Robert Holland

The next fire was during the War in 1864. The house was in the line of fire, and the family was forced to refugee, and went back to South Carolina to Margaret’s family. Mrs. Mattie Lyon refers to this trip in her "Memories of the Civil War," as she was in the group that left Cobb County.

The story of this family would not be complete without a few stories that have survived through the hundred years especially of Margaret, who was a strong character, always a lady, and resourceful in all circumstances. Isham Anderson Stanley, their oldest son was stationed near Atlanta, and had been shot in the hip by a fellow soldier who failed to recognize him, and was carried home, near Big Shanty. The Federals were stationed just a few miles to the north 78 and were roaming the farms, so was necessary to keep Isham hidden in the cotton house and one of the negro slaves looked after him and watched for Federal soldiers. When it became necessary to leave just before the battle of Kenesaw Mountain, Isham was rolled up in a feather bed, and placed in the wagon, Margaret sat on him, as they with the little children and their few possessions rode through the Federal picket lines and the wounded soldier was not discovered. When they returned a year later every thing in the house was destroyed.

About this same time a grandson of George Stanley who went to Indiana about 1813, was serving with the Federal Company from Indiana and stationed at the town of Big Shanty, and had received a pass to visit his cousins, the Roberts and Stanley’s on the next day. That night a sniper’s bullet killed the Indiana cousin, and it is believed he is buried in the National Cemetery in Marietta.

There is a grave in the Mars Hill Cemetery near the lot of Ezekiel Stanley of a young boy possible ten or twelve years old marked "Hoyt Stanley." None of the family Bibles list a Hoyt Stanley. Could be the child of a Lewis Stanley, Jr., who was an Uncle of Ezekiel. Lewis was living in Cobb Co. In 1849, then seems to disappear. This grave stone is of field stone, neatly cut and the cutting still very legible. The map of Cobb Co. Published by the War Department in Washington during the Civil War shows two Stanley farms. One south of the one know to be Ezekiels, that could be that of Lewis Jr. Should this record fall into the hands of any one knowing anything about this Hoyt or the descendants of Lewis Stanley Jr., would like to hear from them. (Note: The compilers are now long gone, but I would be happy to update the record - JRD)

The Court House was destroyed by Sherman when he left Marietta, and a fire in 1880 destroyed it again so records are hard to find and a time consuming job. There is much more work to be done, so this record is 79 far from complete, but covers Ezekiel’s ancestors as far as I have been able to trace, and his descendants as far as the descendants themselves have been good enough to answer inquiries into their families.

This record will possibly be repeated in other sections of this publication, but is necessary to a history of the descendants of Ezekiel Stanley I.

1790 census records of Spartanburg District later Old Pendelton District, S.C. agree with this Bible record, also old land deeds on file in the Archives and Court Houses in these districts.

Ezekiel Stanley I born 17_____, died around July or Aug. 1805, married Rhoda Ledbetter. Their children:

1. Isham

2. Winifred


3. Elizabeth

4. Ezekiel II

After Ezekiel I died Rhoda married Jacob Gordon, and had 4 more children:

1. Daniel Gordon II

2. William Gordon

3. Rhoda Gordon

4. Tempe Gordon

Mrs. Betsy Weatherly and Mrs. Nancy Landrum were daughters of Daniel Gordon II, both went to Texas, in 1960 a grandson of Nancy Landrum was living in Dallas, Texas and a popular columnist on the Dallas News.

(Note: It appears that Jacob Gordon aka Daniel Gordon are the same person. One of the two names could be a middle name - JRD)

1. Isham Stanley first son of Ezekiel I.

Isham Stanley was in Chambers Co., Ala. In April 1847. See Deed Bk. C-1, p. 369: deed from Isham Stanley of chambers Co., Ala. To Ezekiel Stanley II of Anderson District, S.C., conveyed 708 acres of land for consideration of $708.00.

File 1800 contains the will of Ezekiel Stanley., This will was signed on July 17, 1805. Ezekiel willed all of his estate to his wife Rhoda during her life, then to his children unnamed. The will was witnessed by Lewis Stanley, George Stanley and Daniel McCoy. It was filed for record August 3, 1805 indicating that Ezekiel had died between July 17, 1805 and Aug. 1, 1805. Letters of Administration were granted to Rhoda Stanley on February 18, 1806. A notation in 1808 shows that Rhoda was married to Jacob Gordon. In 1809 Charles Hester was appointed administrator. In 1812 he paid for schooling of children $5.43. The final paper in the file was dated 2-2-1819-- "Due the estate $168.43." Unfortunately there was no list of heirs or names of the children given .81 Spartanburg Co., S.C. A deed filed in 1808 for Ezekiel Stanley from James Martin of Lincoln Co., N.C. for 139 acres on Cherokee Creek bounded by Lewis Stanley, Ezekiel Stanley and Richard Arnold. This deed witnessed by Lewis Stanley who in 1810 make probate in Spartanburg Co. And Rhoda Stanley. Since many deeds were made and given in the early days the recipients were careless in filing same with the courts. This late filing, since Ezekiel died in 1805 was probably for the purpose of selling the land for the support of the children of Ezekiel and Rhoda... More research necessary.

Ezekiel Stanley II, b. May 6, 1805 was the youngest son of Ezekiel Stanley I, and Rhoda Ledbetter Stanley, and was only about three months old when his father died. He married Margaret Ann Holland May 1, 1834, daughter of Robert Holland b 9-30-1788 and Sarah Jones Holland, b. Dec. 7, 1789. (The

HOLLAND line appears in a book OUR KIN by W. H. Manning, Jr. And Edna Anderson Manning of Barnwell, S.C.)

Ezekiel owned land in South Carolina, buying some property in 1835 from Thomas Holland a cousin of Margaret's. Also on record, a purchase of 706 acres of land from his brother Isham Stanley of Chambers Co., Alabama. There are many deed records to and from Isham in S.C. He moved to Georgia about 1850 , as in 185? he sold land in S.C. and gave his address as Cobb. Co., Ga. He was still living in S.C. in 1844 when his son Will was born, whom he named William Pickins. Whether for the county Pickens or for the 83 very popular Gov. Pickens of SC.,. is not known, although William always said he was named for the county where he was born.

Ezekiel purchased a large farm in Cobb. Co., a few miles south of Big Shanty (Kennesaw) several of his sons had farms on the same road and off the original farm. The road now bears his name Stanley Road. The old house is gone, and in the past few years the old log barn was torn down. A nice modern home stands on the site of the old home, but some of the old shrubbery is still there and beautiful after one hundred years.

Ezekiel and Margaret attended the Noonday Baptist Church, traveling by ox and wagon on Sundays when church was held. Ezekiel Jr., b 2-12-1857 died Feb. 4, 1858, is buried in the original Noonday Cemetery, grave not marked.

Many relatives had already come to Cobb Co. And settled: The Roberts, his Aunt Rhoda, his sister Winifred Gibson, cousins the McAfee’s, an uncle Lewis Stanley Jr., also a sister Elizabeth Mason was at Acworth. From records it seems he was the last of his family to leave S. C. And come to Ga. Why they selected the cemetery at Mars Hill is still rather a mystery, since the one at Noonday or Big shanty (Kennesaw) was nearer.

1. Sarah Eveline "Sallie" Stanley, b March 21, 1835, d Dec. 2, 1904, buried Mars Hill Cemetery near Aceworth, Cobb Co., Ga.

It was recently learned that when the ‘boys’ left for the War, Aunt Sallie’s sweetheart marched away, but not before he had her promise that she would wait for him. Many letters passed between them, and then nothing, so it is assumed that he was killed. Aunt Sallie never married, and after the home was broken up after her father died, she went to live with her brother John and his wife Addie, in Griffin, Ga.

During the early days of their married life they had a farm near the Ezekiel Stanley farm. The road by the house has been changed twice in the memory of the writer, but one is passable to the site of the house. The Watsons were wanderers and the trek "West" was so appealing they started, stopped for a short time in New Orleans, La., but Texas called and on they went., In 1927 Aunt Mollie, Uncle Bob and Cousin Maggie came to Georgia, and it was a thrill to have them in our home for a visit, and to listen to their stories of the early days in Texas, the hardships, heartbreaks, and joys. Could have listened for hours, and wish so much now I had been interested in genealogy then and taken notes of the things they told me. He was a veteran of the Civil War. They were Presbyterians.

This ends the present history of the Stanley’s-- descendants of Ezekiel Stanley and Margaret Holland Stanley; Information contained here-in came from family Bibles, records, letters, individual data sheets furnished those records are the most complete. There is much to be done yet, but this is all I have.

It seems fitting that this should end with a quotation I have heard all my life from my mother, 143 who says Margaret Holland Stanley told the orphan children of William Stanley and Fannie Jane Wade "If there is ever a stain on the fame of Stanley, the younger generation will have to put it there." So each of the descendants can search their own heart.

p. 74. The Roberts Family came originally from Wales, settled in Virginia, and later moved to South Carolina and then to Georgia.

Wiley Roberts, son of Willis Roberts, came to Cobb about 1835 and settled south of the present town of Kennesaw, on what is now the Dixie Highway. That portion of the highway which was once called the Casssville Road runs through the original plantation, a part of which is still owned by George C. Roberts of Marietta, and occupied by his son. Wiley Roberts married Rhoda Stanley, daughter of a family well known in the county. Their children were: Benson, George, Willis, John, Thomas, Eliza and Wiley. Benson was an early hotel keeper in Marietta and moved to Griffin, Georgia, shortly before the War Between the States. The other sons owned plantations on Noonday Creek, two of them, Willis and Thomas, moving to Texas shortly before the war. Eliza Roberts married Robert McAfee, their daughter Louella, married John A.G. Anderson, Wiley McAfee married Miss Spellman, and Annie McAfee married James Banks.

George Roberts married first Kitty Miller and second Jo Burt (Wiley Roberts married Harriett Burt, this family having come originally from South Carolina). Their children were: George, Oswald, Alice, who died unmarried, and Katherine, married Henry Glover.

John Roberts married first Lucretia Jane Roberts, and second her sister Augusta, these sisters being from Columbia County, and distant cousins of the Wiley Roberts family. By his first marriage John Roberts’ children were: Alfred McAfee, Wiley S., Mary Frances, Lucy May, Charles H., George C., Willie L., John B., Georgia, Eugene, and Ernest. 156

p.94. the first county academies in Cobb were incorporated Dec. 23, 1833. This was Cobb Academy, in Marietta, situated on Denmead St., just south of the site now occupied by the Negro Congregational Church on Whitlock Ave. The first trustees of the academy were George W. Winters, Wm. B. Malone, Lemma Kirtley, Wm. Morris, Jacob R. Brock, Thomas Kirkpatrick and Benson Roberts were added to the board in 1836. In 1838, 148 students, 79 males 69 women.

P. 123. The Marietta Hotel on south side of the square in the same block in which Geo. Winters Tavern once stood, lent dignity to the square. In the 1840’s Marietta had grown so that the old log taverns were now outmoded. The Marietta Hotel, of which Benson Roberts was one of the first, if not the first, manager.

P.193. The names of the five cadets whose standing was highest in each class were reported to the Gov. Annually. In the Senior Class, 1858, a Marietta boy led his class. This was Wm. Henry Hunt, who graduated that year and who had been Capt. Of Co.’s and promoted to Commandant of the corps, when the post fell vacant. He was the son of Wm. H. Hunt.

P.194. The conduct role of 1858 listed in order the cadets whose conduct and deportment had been excellent, showed 110 names, several Cobb County boys on the list. George, B. F. And Wm. Roberts among those who had just entered.

P.323. The Institute was an object of much curiosity on the part of the Northern soldiers, "A place deemed doubtless remote, from all Yankee invasion but now became one of the milestones in the Southern progress of the Union armies," said Leslie’s Weekly in Sept. 1864, situated 1/4 mile from the center of town, and before Sherman advanced to the neighborhood, contained 130 cadets who were training in treason and the art of 157 war. They were quartered in small buildings, each of which contained ten young rebels. They retired five weeks before we entered. The college then became barracks for our troops, and for a time occupied the 20th Comm.

The Tribune correspondent thought Col. Brumby’s a princely residence, must have cost the citizens many a pang to tear themselves away from the quiet comfort of luxurious homes of Marietta, to wander in the Saraha’s of Southern Ga., at the present hot dry season.

In the second dispatch there’s much more to be said of this place than that was contained in my letter yesterday. Colonel Brumby was locally famous as a rose grower, and on this summer morning the air was perfumed with the roses in his garden. They were soon a sorry sight, trampled down by men accustomed to a sterner footing than Marchal Neils and Malmaisons. He elaborated on the charms of the town. Probably not more than twenty houses are occupied and those only by superannuated men, invalids and children. The town is a perfect grotto of shade. The best estates are owned by Ed Denmead, John H. Glover, H.J. Rusk, Gen. A.J. Hansell, Dr. Stewart, Archibald Howell, F. Roberts and others named.

P.399. In 1872, the political pot was boiling busily in Cobb County that year, a presidential election would come that year, and Cobb County had its share of interest in the race. By the time summer came, the Marietta Journal bristled with notices of meetings of the Democratic party of the county and the Young Men’s Democratic Club. The Republicans were not idle.

George Roberts and J. M. McAfee went from Cobb to the convention, which chose the Democratic nominee for Governor in Atlanta in July.

Perhaps Cobb was even more concerned over the election 1872 of county officers, since many there had been158 working in various district committees composed of such staunch democrats as Thomas H. Moore, Co. Charley Phillips, and Benj. Stripling. In the Marietta district George Roberts, Thomas Harris, other named.

The Bonham and Tracy families, both old families of Edgefield Co., S.C. having come from Maryland. One of the Chief Justices of S.C. was Milledge Bonham.

James Stanley, born Oct. 5, 1822, in Fayette Co., Ind. His parents, George and Elisabeth Stanley, were natives of South Carolina, which state they left immigrating to Ind. And settled in Fayette County. James Stanley was reared a farmer and the advantages of an education, so essential in the formation of the youthful character, were enjoyed by him in a very limited degree. He improved the opportunities, however, and thereby laid the foundation for an education, which added to a long business experience, has developed into a fund of practical knowledge. Jan. 2, 1845, he came to Cass County, Ind., and settled in the Western Reserve, where he purchased a tract of govt. Land and engaged in farming. He was appointed deputy sheriff, under Williard G. Nash, in 1861, and subsequently served in the same capacity under John Davis. He was elected sheriff in 1868, and after discharging the duties of the position in a manner satisfactory to all concerned, resumed farming, which he carried on at intervals until 1884. In the latter year he was the democratic nominee for sheriff, and after a spirited contest against a very popular competitor, was elected by a handsome majority. He is the present incumbent of the office, and against his record no shade of suspicion has ever been uttered.

Mr. Stanley enjoys great personal popularity, and is a gentleman of intelligence and generous impulses. He is a representative Democrat, of the old school, and has been alive to the interests of his party in Cass County. Mr. Stanley was married, 1841, to Mary Salyer of Fayette County, Ind., who has borne him ten children: James B., Martha (wife of Charles Graffis), J. W. Belle, George W., and Laura M. The deceased members of the family were: Andrew J., Margaret E., Mary and Caroline. Mr. Stanley has been a member of the Masonic Fraternity since about 1853, and belongs to Galveston Lodge, No. 244. Belle Stanley m George Gibson of Rome, Ga. Laura M. M William Smith (See later). Part of above from 173 Cass Count History).

Lewis Stanley Jr., son of Lewis and Adah Stanley, was born in 96th Dist. Spartanburg, S.C., in 1788, m Judith _____ born 1790 in S.C. She may have been Judith Croue, as Rebecca Croue born 1775 in S.C., was living with them in 1850 in Cobb Co., Ga.

Lewis Stanley was married in the 1810 Census of Pendleton Co., S.C., age 16-26, wife 16-26; no children.

In a Bible record of Wm. Thomas Stanley, gr. grandson of Lewis and Adah Stanley, Lewis was named as one of their sons, no birth dates given for any of the children, probably from family legend.

There are several land deeds found in the records at Anderson, S.C. Bk. M. P-151, April 19, 1813, Wiley Roberts and Ann Gibson to Lewis Stanley, Jr., 100 acres $150.00, bounded by Joseph and William McClure, Arthur Johns, wit: John Gentry, William Ledbetter.

Lewis Stanley Bk. __ et al. Pickens Co., S.C. 857 acres June 12, 1833, 417 acres June 14, 1833, Lewis Stanley and wife Judith, deeded 100 acres March 31, 1834 to John Burns of Lawrence Dist. S.C. (land on Camp Branch, Conneross Creek, see deeds).

We assume Lewis Stanley, Jr., and wife went to Georgia between March 31, 1834, and 1835, as their 187 daughter Eliza H. Stanley was born in Ga. 1835, this from 1850 Census Big Shanty Dist., Cobb Co.

Hoyt Stanley, no dates, buried in Mars Hill Cem. said to be the son of Lewis Stanley, Jr. and wife Judith.

On May 4, 1849, Big Shanty Dist., an election was held to elect a Colonel for the newly created Regiment of Militia in the county, Lewis Stanley one of the managers.

Judith age 60 b. S.C.

Eliza H. age 15 b. Ga.

Rebecca Croue age 75 b. S.C. (widow)

William Miller, Judge

In this record you will see Martha E. Appling for her share in favor of E. H. Stanley for his share. This item seemed wrong knowing Benjamin Stanley did not have a son E. H., until Mrs. A. W. McDuff, the dau of Lewis T. Stanley wrote that share belonged to John Wheeler Stanley deceased and E. H. was Eliza H., his widow.

I direct that a proper full and complete inventory be taken of all the notes, accounts, goods, merchandise, furniture and appurtenances thereunto belonging, and that my mercantile business be conducted and continued by my partner Geo.

b. Lucius Fillmore Stanley, son of George Washington and Isabella (Jetton) Stanley was b near Jasper, Ala. on June 14, 1858. From a newspaper clipping:

"Funeral rites for Judge L. F. Stanley April 1, 1936, who died at his home in this city at an early hour last Thursday morning were held from the First Presbyterian Church at 2:30 o’clock Friday afternoon conducted by the pastor, Rev. N. J. Sayler, Rev. Allen of Files Valley Presbyterian Church was prevented from participating in the services by illness. Brown Rees and Co., funeral directors of this city were in charge of arrangements and interment was in the Itasca Cem. Active pallbearers were the deacons of the church viz.; Frank Davis, Wm. Greer, Homer Weatherred, Earl Farrow, Robert A. Stingily and Green Nuckols.

"Honorary pallbearers included the elders of the church, viz.: Frank Martin, Pat. E. Hooks, C. C. Pruitt, Sidney J. Files, T. J. Stamps, E. F Thompson, E.D. Welch, W.F. Clack, and the following: H. E. Chiles, Senator Wm. Martin, John Clark, John Clark, Jim Walker, all of Hillsboro; ;M. L. Brockette, James E Patton, Newt Walker, R. L. Taylor, D.O. Knick, Dr. James A. Spur, Dr. Clark, C. Campbell, H. R. Vernon, R. C. Jones and John A. Martin.

"Lucius F. Stanley was a native of the state of Ala., having been born in Jasper, of that state June 14, 1858, fifty four years ago, when a young man he came to Texas and settled near Grandview. Two years later he moved to Itasca where he continued to reside up to the time of his death. In 1889 he was married to Miss Ida Pruitt who as his wife and life companion passed away in this city eight years ago.

"He is survived by the following children: Felix W., Waco, Texas, Mrs. Tennie Belle Bobbitt, San Antonio, and J. G. Stanley of Itasca, also the following half brothers and sisters: J.W. and D.C. Stanley of Duncan, Okla. and Mrs. Joe Graham of Alpine, Texas.

"Judge Stanley has been closely identified with the social and civic life of Itasca from the founding of the town more than fifty years ago, up to a year or two ago, when under the infirmities of advancing age, he 220 retired from official duties and spent most of his time at home. He was appointed Justice of the Peace of Precinct number two in July 1900 and with the exception of a year or two, when he voluntarily withdrew, he served continuously until his resignation in Nov. 1933.

"During his long term of service he established a reputation for fairness and handled justice to all parties concerned in his court, and his council and advice was sought on many matters. As an official, he probably performed more marriages than any other man in the county, only a few weeks before his retirement, he performed a marriage ceremony in which both bride and groom were children of marriages he had performed earlier in his career.

" Another matter a bit unique in the history of his service was a decision he rendered some years ago when the truck and auto began to supplant the buggy and wagon in general use and both defined in the statues as vehicles and as such were not subject to execution. The question came up in his court as to whether an auto was a vehicle in the meaning of the statute. His decision was that an automobile was a vehicle in the sense of the statute that if enjoyed the exemption provided in the law. His decision was appealed, but in the meantime a similar case came up in the Ft. Worth district court in which the district Judge reached a different conclusion from that rendered by Judge Stanley. That case however was appealed to the Supreme Court and the decision reversed, affirming Judge Stanley’s original decision."

"The house was two stories high, 30 feet long do not remember how wide, but 4 beds could stand side by side in back end porch, across the front with room on end of porch, a long shed room across back. The 4 beds were for the girls; the shed room for the boys. The second story was for travelers that stopped over night.

There was a road in front of the house and on the east end of the house. it was called the cross roads and travelers stopped for the night. On the west end was a smokehouse and by that was a well and a milk house dug down a few feet. On the back side was a kitchen and near that was a servants’ house. On the east end was a barn and on the front across the road was the fruit orchard of 10 acres. That was in Jackson Co. They did their marketing in Athens. There was a man and his wife in the servants’ house. When your mother (Jennie McMillan) was born, the woman kept her in her house most of the time and took care of her. She loved to work with her hair because she had so much; it was red."

"Me main reason for sending you the enclosure is to get rid of the statement that ROBERT GAINES who married ELIZABETH LONG was a son of WILLIAM (usually erroneously called WILLIAM HENRY) GAINES. He was not. The only shred of evidence I have ever found for this statement (and I have an enormous collection of Gaines data) is that ROBERT AND ELIZABETH (LONG) GAINES had a gr. son named EDMUND PENDLETON GAINES. But I have evidence the EDMUND PENDELTON (1721-1803) had other namesakes who were not related to him.

Some sixty years ago a mistake was made in Gaines genealogy and it has been widely circulated. It concerned two Robert Gaines. Robert, Thomas and James (1743-1829) were respectively the 4th, 5th and 6th sons of WILLIAM and ISABELLA (PENDELTON) GAINES. ROBERT was born in 1739 or earlier. Her removed from Culpeper Co., Va. by 1779 to Augusta Co., Va., and thence to Surrey (the present Stookes) Co., No, Car., His brothers., THOMAS and JAMES removed to Sullivan Co., Tenn. This ROBERT GAINES m. Mildred, dau. of Elliott and Ann (Walker) BOHANNON. ROBERT and MILDRED had a son, AMBROSE, b. in Culpeper Co., Va., 6 July 1763; also several daughters, and according to tradition, a son,


ROBERT. The other Robert Gaines was b 1740-1750, as shown by the Census of Rockingham Co., Va., for 1830. He d. in that following year. He m. Elizabeth Long and had 12 children: 1. Thomas, b 1771; 2. Lucy; 3. Robert; 4. John Long; 5. Mary; 6. Richard; 7. Catherine; 8. Amelia; 9. Ursula; 10. Sarah; 11. Reuben; 12. Elizabeth b 1793.

The ROBERT Gaines who married ELIZABETH LONG has been mistakenly to have been the son of WILLIAM and ISABELLA (PENDELTON) GAINES. He was probably a son of Robert Gaines who died in Spotsylvania Co., Va. in 1763 leaving widow, Ursula. Robert and Ursula had according to circumstantial evidence in part, at least, 6 children: 1. William, d 1813, prob. m Jane Robinson; 2. Alice, m John Robinson, d 1811; 3. Ursula m Elijah Carter; 4. Mary; 5. Robert m ca 1770 Elizabeth Long; 6. Lucy; living in 1776, unmarried. Confirmation or refutation of statements as to Robert and Ursula Gaines and their children is requested."

From - GEORGIA JOURNEYS by Sadie Gober Temple and Kenneth Coleman.

P. 22 (referring to the first baby born in the new colony of Georgia -- "She came early enough to the ministrations of Dr. Cox and Dr. Herbert and undoubtedly also of Mrs. Joseph Stanley, a midwife."

P. 138:

A report on Amitis death was made by Mrs. Joseph Stanley, one of the Ann’s passengers and the public midwife at Savannah. She went back to England and talked to the Trustees in March 1737. A story was current that Amatis burned all of his silk worms and the silk machine before his death because the magistrate (Presumably Causton) would not allow him when ill to see a Priest. This was false, Mrs. Stanley said. She was with Amatis when he died, and he made no such demand; his wife, who had been his maid-servant, turned over the eggs and machine to the magistrates. From this account, the better of the two, it would seem that Amatis died in Savannah.

P. 177:

Georgia climate was similar to South Carolina’s but the harder life in the new colony was not so conductive to longevity. In Georgia, William Stephens in 1740 spoke of Joseph Stanley, one of the Ann’s passengers, as being in his old age, superannuated weak and past any labor. Stanley was then about 53 years old; but he had just left Georgia, which would tend to lower Stephen’s estimation of his value. Down at Frederica, Dr. Thomas Hawkins reported that a woman there died not of any illness but of old age, for she was upwards of 60 years old.

PP. 200-201

Joseph Stanley and his wife lost the servant they brought with them on the Ann, John Kackay, in the sickness of the first summer. they themselves seem to have weathered the trials of that time. Mrs. Stanley was the public midwife to whom the Trustees 262 paid a crown for each woman whom she attended. Early in 1735 she wrote her first letter to the Trustees in which she said that none of the 59 women she had attended had been unsuccessful in childbirth. She also asked that the colonists be warned against other women in Georgia who were calling themselves midwives, also one mother attended by such a person had died. Mrs. Stanley wanted a servant sent to her husband and asked that his sexton’s fees be settled. Neither had been sent which Oglethorp had promised her. She did not think these requests were too great, for the Trustee’ tender behavior toward Georgians made her sure they would consider her case with a fatherly care."

"The; following year Mrs. Stanley went to England, as the Earl of Edgmont recorded in his Diary: "She lately come over to lie in herself, not caring to trust herself to the other midwives of Georgia." By the time she left the colony Mrs. Stanley had brought into the world 128 children, forty of whom were then dead." It was evidently expected that she would return to Georgia to resume her duties, but she did not."

Mr. Stanley remained in the colony and signed the representation of 1738. He had by that time felled, cleared, and fenced four acres of his land. In the summer of 1740 he went to New York.

Stanley returned to the ;colony in January 1744, and received the

Trustee’ permission to transfer his Savanna garden and farm lots to James Campbell in return for which Campbell would pay him 8 sterling a year for life. In August, 1753 Joseph Stanley was granted 100 acres of land by the President and Assistants and in 1756 the governor signed a grant of 100 acres to him, which was doubtless a re-affirmation of the 1753 grant."

NOTE: The Salyer Family lists Kirk and Richard Salyer as children of Rebecca West and Charles Salyer. However, they are not included, in my family file, because there is no information or documentation that supports that they ever existed. Unfortunately, The Salyer Family does not list a source. The Salyer Family also omitted Oliver Perry Salyer, he is included based on the 1860 Shelby County, IL Census and the Obituary of Rebecca Salyer.
