I am trying to locate information on my line of STANLEY'S and CUNNINGHAM'S
that lived in the Grand River Twp area of Decatur Co, IA and
the Mercer Co,
MO area. My JOHN STANLEY dob 1828 TENN and
wife ANN ELIZA CUNNINGHAM dob
1834 VA , moved into the Decatur/ Mercer Co's area about
1856. They had the
following children :
John L Stanley dob 1855 who married Nancy J Margerum
William Andrew Jackson Stanley dob 1858 who married Rebbeca
COX in Decatur
James Hannan Stanley dob 1860 who married Anna Marie WARD in
Decatur Co IA
Burbin S. Stanley dob 1861 who married Geanette HALL in Decatur Co
I am a Hall cousin of Pauline Stubbs)
Harvey Stanley dob 1864
Martha J Stanley dob 1865 who married David G Lane.
I have been unable to find any information on Harvey STANLEY
happened to Anna WARD. John, Ann Eliza, Burbin and Geanette
left the area
for Linn Co Kansas in about 1882-1883. From Linn Co KS , they
Vernon Co Mo in 1890. John L, the son married in Shelby Co IA
in 1882 and
later migrated to Jackson Co Mo and then on to Cass Co MO. Martha
married in 1882 in Union Co IA and migrated on to Sarpy Co NE. James
Stanley I belive later joined his father and brother Burbin in Vernon
in 1890. Wm AJ and wife Rebecca remained in the area until his
1887. As to what happened to Harvey, I have not a clue. I know
he was still
alive and at home in 1880, Decatur Co MO.
I know very little on John Stanley 1828. Ann Eliza CUNNINGHAM STANLEY'S
family moved to the Mercer Co MO area about 1860, from Coles Co ILL.
parents were John and Mary CUNNINGHAM and her siblings were John W
Alexander, Permelia Walker, Nancy and Mary Ann.
Related family surnames include LAMON (LEMON), RETHERFORD, FOSTER and
The JOHN CUNNINGHAM family arrived about 1860.
If anyone has even a tiny tidbit on any of the above persons,
me. I will gladly share what information I have.
