My grandmother is Wessie Jean Stanley b. 1913 in TX. Her father was William Presley Stanley b. 1873 in TX. Her mother was Lizzie Evalyn Moore born in TX. William Presley married about 5 women in his life time so it is hard to determine whose child is whose. Anyway, grandma says that William Presley's father was Stephen Jefferson Stanley, III, b. 1846. Stephen, III's siblings may possibly be George, Margaret, James, Elizabeth, and Sarah, but this is not confirmed. My grandma says that her family possibly originated in South Carolina.
I have heard of the name Stephen Stanley or Stephen Jefferson Stanley b. 1700's. I believe that this S. J. Stanley b. 1700's is the father/grandfather of my Stephen, III. Any information is much appreciated and will help me in my search.
