Hi everyone...... thought it was worth a try seeing if anyone out there has my Grandfather and his elusive ancestors hiding deep in their family history. *SIGH* Wouldn't you think having names like Francis Stanley Stanley (b abt 1840)and his son Walter Alexander Stanley Stanley, (master mariner and then labourer post-WWI, born 1880 and died in 1943) would be a real cinch to find? Wrong! Anyway, these two are from London, Middlesex, England - although there is a promising candidate in the 1881C in London England. A master mariner from Machias Park, Maine. Alas a fire roared through machias around 1840 when this Francis would have been born there and all records were lost.
Today I found a Charles STANLEY and Mary Ann WATKINS who baptized their twin sons - Francis Stanley Stanley and Edward Stanley in 1831 in West hackney, Mdx, England - so I am very timidly entering it as a "maybe fingers, toes and eyes crossed" entry as parents for my Ggrandfather.
I would be so grateful if anyone has heard of these two men........ for the sake of my sanity.
Looking for my Great Grandmothers Husbands family to continue my family tree. Trying to trace my Native American Ancestry .. Born 1894 Martha Liew Hughes..married Andrew Stanley, then married a Killen any and all info is greatly appreciated
I am trying to find the connection between Emma M. Stanley and Ann janette Stanley. I only know that Anne was born 1824 (NY) and had married John Preston Kellogg 1842, and they being the parents of he famous "Kellogg Bros.". If anyone can help i will be so thankfull...
i do have a somewhat large family file to share, if needed. Thank you much!
