Hi, I just found this Staveley forum and saw your message. My Stavely line can be traced to Robert Stavely who was born in Yorkshire, England, 11 May 1811 and died 21 August 1880 in Lost Nation, Iowa. He married Charlotte Mair also born in Yorkshire 26 May 1820. They came to America in 1873 when one of their daughters Eleanor was only 17 (my great grandmother) and she was born in Hull. Robert and Charlotte had other children as well, Elizabeth Harrison, Caroline Rowe, Phoebe Long,, John Stavely, Robert Stavely, and Josiah Stavely. I don't know if there is a connection here or not, but I did find it interesting that your John Stavely was a blacksmith.

On an abstract from the Lost Nation records, it lists Robert Stavely's occupation as "Black". Do you think there's a possibility of him being a descendent of your John Stavely born in the 1700's and the trade was passed down through the familly?
