I really appreciate your information. It does seems to rule out a familial connection with my Nancy Stanley, as she lists her parents as being from Ohio and Connecticut. There may be a distant kinship, but her 1818 birth would rule out John Stanley as a father or Jesse as a brother. Since there were several Stanleys in Marietta of Connecticut descent, I am thinking that Francis is the Stanley most likely to be her father, unless he had a brother in the area...and she would be a niece.

However, your Stanley information may be very helpful to me in the future. There are several Stanley families that my family has married into.

Thank you.
