I'm not related, just trying to help.

Martha's maiden name may not have been Kennedy. I found her son's, Joseph M Standley's, death certificate. It says her maiden name was Head.

In the 1850 census there's a Daniel Standley listed as if he's William and Martha's son. He may be a son of her previous marriage to a Kennedy. It's hard to tell for sure since the 1850 census doesn't give relationships.
