Have you had any success in your research on William Stoodley? Although I don't have much I can help you with, I am researching this line and am interested in anything you may have learned in the meantime. My GGG-Grandfather was Johnson Stoodly/Studley, who I believe was "Johnson F. Stoodley", a son of William & Sarah "Sally", nee Fuller. Most of this I have gleaned off the WWW however, and have not had a chance to confirm. I show Johnson F. living in Andover Township, VT in the 1850 Census, and a few doors down is a William Stoodley, age 86, born in Mass. This could be one and the same, but not sure. In any case, that William is living with a Cynthia Stoodley, age 81, from N.H. Word has it that Sarah "Sally" Fuller died in 1840, so he could have remarried. Johnson F. doesn't seem to show up much other than birth, but it makes sense because my research shows he moved to Wisconsin between 1850 & 60, & probably lost touch with his New England kin
As far as your research, does the family tradition you came across make sense, that William (born 1765) would have been in on the Tea Party at age 8? Maybe it is indeed a different person, or William's father, that was in on the fun?
Any news appreciated!
