Trying to clean up all my various scraps of info regarding the Stansells. I have a handwritten note,by my great-great-great grandfather Nicholas Stansell, that gives the names of his children, etc. plus dates for births, marriages, etc. His first wife was Eliz. Newcomb - they had at least 7 girls and 1 son; his 2nd wife was Susannah Erskine Thayer (she had a number of children by her first marriage) - Nicholas & Susannah had 2 sons (one died young, unmarried), one Jacob who had sons Frank and Edward, daughter Phidelia (my gr. gr. grandmother, m. W.O. Houghtaling), and a daughter Chloe, who m. a man named Taylor. I want to verify info. BACK from Nicholas ( I think to Nicholas and Eliz. deGraff, but have found confusion from various sources). Also curious about possible families of Frank and Edward B. Stansell as they went "west" and abroad, as per addresses in address book of my gr. grandmother Susan Houghtaling Mershon.
I welcome all information.
