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
Co IA
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 IA  (yes,
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 or  what
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 moved to
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 J Stanley
married in 1882 in Union Co IA and migrated on to Sarpy Co NE. James H.
Stanley I belive later joined his father and brother Burbin in Vernon Co MO
in 1890.  Wm AJ and wife Rebecca remained in the area until his death in
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.  Her
parents were John and Mary CUNNINGHAM and her siblings were John W Jr,
Alexander, Permelia  Walker, Nancy  and Mary Ann.
Related family surnames include LAMON (LEMON), RETHERFORD, FOSTER and WALKER.

The JOHN CUNNINGHAM family arrived about 1860.

 If anyone has even a tiny tidbit on any of the above persons, please contact
me. I will gladly share what information I have.

Thanks,
