Check out the note I left for Mary Standley regarding Moweaqua.
You seem to be related further back.
I have that William Standley (10-21-1818/3-4-1905 married Matilda Ausmus in 1842. His father was Noble Standley (1971-1862) and his mother Nancy Smart (1795-1876) Their children were
Willam md Matilda Ausmus
Elizabeth md John Brattain Moss
Ruth md Willam G. Stout
Thomas md Mary Ann Moss
Josiah md Nancy Bradshaw
Richard md Rachel Ausmus (my gr-gr grandfather)
Nohn H. md Nancy Riley
Henry md mary Ann Mullens
David md Malinda Smith
Suzannah md John Edward Jeffers
Jane md Wiley Smith
Noble's parents were Moses Standley and Elizabeth Byrd or Bird
Moses' parents were William Standley and Judith ?
The History of Morgan County has a lot of infor on the Standleys and the Ausmus'
The DAR records are
Moses Standley #19713
Richard Standley #10050
I once heard that William (@1720) came from an island called Standleydale off the coast of Scotland but I have found no record of it.
I do find a Wm Standley 22 entering Maryland 1684
and a Wm Standley na Virginia 1715
also records of a william Standley aged 22 transported from London 13 Oct 1635 aboard the AMITY
They've certainly been in this country a long time. I'd love to learn more about them.
Let me know if I can send you anything or help. I am swamped lately and keep promising myself I'll work on this "someday".
My husband bought me a new computer geneology program two years ago and I've yet to load it.
