STANLEY, JOHN H. -- Section 7, P.O. Lynnville. Was born in Henry county, Indiana, on the 15th day of October, 1855. While he was yet very young his parents removed to this State, and settled in Jasper county about two miles north of Lynnville, where young Stanley was brought up on a farm until the year 1861, when his father purchased a farm and removed to this township, where John H. continued to labor on the farm during the summer and attend school in winter. He continued to live with and labor for his father, assisting in making his new farm, until December 25, 1879, when he was married to Esther A. Sheridan, who was also born in Henry county, Indiana. Mr. Stanley has a nice farm on the west line of the county, within plain view of Lynnville. Has his farm reasonably well improved and stocked. Mr. Sheridan may be termed one of the pioneer young men of this county.
