I am seeking information on my STALNAKER family line that migrated from SC to AL after 1830.
Napoleon Bonaparte Stalnaker was born in SC abt. 1805. He was given a land patent in Tuscaloosa Co, AL probably after serving time in the Military. He appears on the 1860 census records in Tuscaloosa Co, AL with his wife & children.
Napoleon married a woman named Sarah (surname unknown) b. 1805 in SC. They may have married in SC and then moved to Tuscaloosa Co,AL. I have no information on who Napoleon's parents or syblings may have been.
