William Stanley III1

Charts:Juanita Bessie Counts * lineage
     William Stanley III was born c 1806 at Johnston Co, North Carolina. He was the son of William Stanley II and Nancy (Unknown). William Stanley III married Ida Frances Madrin on 16 Apr 1827. William Stanley III died on 3 Jun 1888 at Union Co, Tennessee. He was buried at Stanley Family Cemetery, Union Co, Tennessee.
      Living in Campbell Co, TN in 1830 was a William Stanley and his wife each age 20 – 29 and one son and two daughters under 5. This family profile matches that of William Stanley our ancestor, but more research is required to prove they are the same person. A Noah? Stanley age 50 to 59 and two males under 5 and one age 10 -14 and two females age 5 – 9, one age 10 – 14, one age 15 – 19 and one age 40 – 49 were also living in the county.

In 1840 a William Stanley III (age 30 to 39) lived in Johnston Co, NC with a family of six; two were engaged in farming; this could be our ancestor, although there are probably other William Stanleys. In 1850 William and his wife Frances had eight children living in at home; he was farming his real estate valued at 500. By 1860 William and Frances were living in Raccoon Valley, Union Co, TN with five children at home. He was farming and his economic situation had considerably improved as his real estate was valued at 2000 and his personal property at 1000. His son John Haywood Stanley was noted as a farm hand and had personal property valued at 500. His son Callaway was also noted as a farm hand. His son Richard, age 18, is not living at home, however there is a Richard Stanley age 18 living in the household of an apparent widow Rebecca Waggner who has young children, so he may have moved in with a relative. Of note, there is no definitive proof William Stanley is Richard Bledsoe Stanley's father because they are not named in the same household, but this is the only logical natal family for Richard found thus far in the records.

      An 1810 census of North Carolina lists one Will Stanley and three William Stanleys; one William Stanley married Penelope Keen in 1790 in Bertie County, NC. (JudySCard@aol.com, Indians and Melungeons: Stanley & Strong; Gowens & Goings, 14 Mar 1997)

Although our Stanleys were not known to be living in Campbell Co, TN in 1830, in the county at that time were a William Stanley and his wife each age 20 – 29 and one son and two daughters under 5 and a Noah? Stanley age 50 to 59 and two males under 5 and one age 10 -14 and two females age 5 – 9, one age 10 – 14, one age 15 – 19 and one age 40 – 49.

A William Stanley II age 64 was living in Johnston Co, NC in 1850. He was farming land valued at 200 and living with his family -- Polly age 21, Nancy age 30, Polly age 23, Sally age 18, Charlotte age 15 and Starling Baker age 14 and newborn Silas Baker. The family was not literate. Because there are two women named Polly -- ages 21 and age 23 one may be a daughter-in-law or a census taker's error and is his wife Nancy; of note, if this is the correct William his wife Nancy does appear on the 1860 census with a daughter Sarah, neither or whom were listed in 1850. In the same area lived William Stanley age 48 with wife Nancy and family; Anne Stanley age 65; Jessee Stanley age 28 with wife Bursheba; Lewis Stanley age 31 with wife Ridley; Littleton Stanley age 22 with wife Edmy; John W. Stanley junior age 31 with wife Looty; and Elisha Stanley age 60 with wife Prissilla.

In 1860 a William age 75 was living in Neuse River, Johnston Co, NC with Nancy age 45 and daughter Sarah age 25. His real estate was valued at only 100 and his personal property at 25. Other Stanley families were living in the area.

      Proving the Stanley family line is problematic. Researchers have posted a lineage of three Williams, the last of whom was born circa 1806 in Johnston Co, NC and is most definitely our ancestor. However inssuficient information has been found on that William's father and grandfather to conclusively prove which of many William Stanleys they are.

The marriage bond application for William Stanley, if it is the correct one for our ancestor, is so faint his fiance's name is barely legible and the date is unclear. Although some researchers decided William married Polly Bradford /Polly Bridges, her surname on the marriage bond appears to only be three letters, hence it is most likely he married Polly Web.

There may be some truth to the Stanley family tradition that most of the William's family was killed by Indians. (JudySCard@aol.com, Indians and Melungeons: Stanley & Strong, 14 Mar 1997.) If the legend is correct, William Stanley (born 1752) and all of the family except William (born ~1786) and his mother Mary were massacred by Indians in Kentucky or North Carolina. The story reportedly applied to a massacre between 1805 and 1810, but the Stanley children from that generation all survived. Because only William and his mother Mary are reported on family trees the massacre could have happened circa 1755, if it happened at all.
