I've just com upon your message on the message boards. My family surname I'm researching is Stanley and yes thet are from Elgin county. My mum's maiden name was Stanley and we're related to Thomas & Harriet(Bratt) Stanley that lived in the Sparta area. There is also A Stanley in the family who mattied a Mclean. Actually, we use to have Mclean's that lived just down the road from us in the Strahroy area. This was many years ago. I have quite a bit of info regarding the Stanley's. If you reply we could perhaps share what we have.
