     Sarah STANFIELD #417 [1a2b3c.24d]
       marr.1 Reuben RORIE #430 [2b3c.24d.1] 
       marr.2 ---- BOSTWICK #431 [2b3c.24d.2]
I have children information and a few other records, though I can't make the Bostwick connection the other could be correct. Would like to work with someone on this

One of the drawbacks with the descendancy approach to showing genealogical data on the web is that it's not always terribly easy to follow the line of descent for the more distant folks. I hope that the presentation was not too confusing. The STANFILL GEDCom from which this descendancy was produced does not show any dates for this Sarah Stanfield; however, it does show her as the dau of John Stanfield/Stanfill Sr (1733-1784) and Mary Sherrod. I would estimate her date of birth as approximately 1770 based on better data on some of her siblings.

I will forward your query to our group. We have several people working on the John Stanfield/Mary Sherrod line so perhaps some connections can be established. ------- NAME: Terry [surname unknown] SURNAMES: BLAINE, STANFIELD, WARREN DATE: Monday, November 25, 2002 QRYTEXT:Hi!

Child was Opal STANFIELD. No birth date info. Graduated 1951, Chillicothe Twnshp. High School, Illinois. Opal STANFIELD married Pat AMMON, probably in Crawford co., IL. Ellis STANFIELD may be related to Levi STANFIELD, born 1875, Crawford co., IL, and wife, Janey, and his parents, Jessie STANFIELD and Hester REED. Opal STANFIELD would be my first cousin, twice removed. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The descendants of Jesse STANFIELD & Hester REED have been fairly well documented by their direct descendants. They had 7 children all born in Melrose twp, Clark co,IL. Levi STANFIELD, whom you mentioned was their youngest, born ca.1876. Jesse STANFIELD (c1824-c1907) had 3 children by his 1st wife Barbara MEDSKER & 4 children by his 2nd wife Hester REED. He was the son of John STANFIELD (1790-1874) & Hannah BEAMS. According to the accepted schema, John STANFIELD was a descendant of the Whitley co,KY branch of the "Cavalier" Stanfield Line of VA. There is no direct relationship with the people you are interested in. Ellis STANFIELD was born ca.1878, York twp, Clark co,IL, son of Moses STANFIELD (1852-1942) & Ann WILLARD, who were married about 1876 and are residing with her mother Lucinda WILLARD in the Census of 1880. Moses STANFIELD was born 16 Apr 1852, Washington co,IN; son of Solomon STANFIELD (1829-1917) & his 1st wife Edna PROVITT.

------- NAME: Ol Grandad Bill Austin SURNAMES: STANFIELD DATE: Friday, July 7, 2000 QRYTEXT:Searching for resume, vital statistics etc. of poet Leontine STANFIELD, author of "The Little Cat Angel" published on the Internet. ------- NAME: Barbara Baker SURNAMES: JONES, STANFIELD DATE: Wednesday, March 27, 2002 QRYTEXT:My neighbor, Pauline Jones Davis, is a descendent of Rachel STANFIELD, wife of Darling JONES, who was born 1810 in TN. Rachel was born 1820 TN, and was the daughter of Sampson STANFIELD as the family history goes. I have not been able to find anything about her to verify this information. Can you help by giving us information about her marriage location and correct birth location?

Sampson Stanfield came from Anson co,NC in about 1804 and settled in that part of Knox co,KY that became Whitley co,KY when that county was erected in 1818. The information in the Mormon IGI gives Rachel's DOB as ca.1813 and all researchers who have based their work on the IGI entries have followed this. I had not previously been aware of a marriage for this dau of Sampson although I now see that 5-6 researchers show her as wife of Darling Jones on WorldConnect. My feeling is that this is largely "follow the leader" and represents no original research. None shows a Marriage date.

I have the following Census Finding which you may find interesting:

 Census of 1850, no twp, Laurel co,KY; hh#42 Darling Jones 40 M Farmer $400 b.TN Rachel Jones 30 F b.KY L. Jones 12 M b.KY W. Harrison Jones 10 M Ephraim Jones 8 M Nancy Jones 6 F Evan Jones 4 M J.F.Jones 2 M 

Laurel was the county immediately North of Whitley and was erected in 1825 from Whitley, Knox, Clay, and Rockcastle counties. If the 1813 date from the IGI is correct, then she would have been born in Knox co,KY as is the case for Sampson's children born between 1804-1818. OTOH if born in 1820 as your info and Census finding indicates, then she would have been born in Whitley co,KY. Assuming that the Census finding represents the right people, it would appear that she was married in ca.1837 probably Whitley co,KY. This is all knowledgable conjecture, as far as I am aware no proof exists for any of these connections.

Francis was the son of Ann CHADSEY of Ogborne, St Andrews in Wiltshire. His first marriage was to Hester COALEMAN of Lyneham (widow of John DAVIS) in 1680. Since Hester had borne several children to John DAVIS, it is surprising not to think that she did the same for her 2nd spouse. After all, Francis had been in PA and active in Quaker affairs (even using his home for meetings) for over 10 years before he married Grace. As a descendant of Sarah Chadsey CLOUD, I've wondered that there usually is no mention of Francis' first wife since Sarah, his oldest living child, could have been the child of his first wife, Hester? I find it unrealistic to think he married in 1680, then spent his time in PA in single blessedness until Grace came along in 1695. Some events are missing here.

As noted there, he was born in Tippecanoe County,IN, not in PA as you had believed. In addition to Honora Dawson, he had 3 subsequent wives. Our primary source for information on this individual is his short biography which appears in Biographical Record & Portrait Album of Tippecanoe County,Indiana, 1888, Lewis Publishing Co., 1888. Our database shows that in later years he resided at Ockley, Carroll co,IN. We have not yet located a death record on him.

In the Census of 1850 he can be found, age 14, residing with his married, older brother John Stanfield III, household #112, Washington twp, Tippecanoe co,IN; next door to his parents John Stanfield Jr & Catherine Cox, household #111. John Stanfield Jr was a well-to-do, prominent farmer, and is described in all of the early histories of Tippecanoe County and is generally regarded as having settled there in 1829.

Any help you can provide will be greatly appreciated. You have a very interesting site.


There were two major Stanfield Family Lines, the Cavalier Stanfield Line of Halifax County,VA, who eventually drifted down into Person & Caswell Counties in NC, and the Quaker Stanfield Line that came to NC from Chester County,PA. Personally I descend from the Quaker Line so I would not have come across slave records in my own research. Perhaps some of the other Stanfield researchers from a different heritage might have, so I will post your query. Hopefully someone may turn up somethiing to help in your quest.

Thank you so much for your reply. Every little bit helps. Slavery is a very sensitive subject to some people. I have made inquiries and gotten back some very terse replies. Folks don't realize that when I ask for information on that matter, I and most other Black folks are not out to make judgements. We just want leads. Thanks again.

I am copying our friend Thomas Harrison Lewis as I think it was his research work on the Stanfield website that you are referring to. Perhaps he will be able to help with your question. Tom is the expert in all things Stanfield pertaining to Virginia.

It is just a guess but I would say that there is a possibiity that Mary Stanfield was the dau or sister of Ephraim Stanfield (c1747-c1820) who married Leah Durrett. ------- NAME: Jeanette Shahan Clark SURNAMES: STANFIELD DATE: Saturday, July 8, 2000 QRYTEXT:I am seeking information on George Oliver and Effie STANFIELD.

Your assessment in in concurrence with our views. There is a Family Group Sheet on her father John STANFIELD at

As a foot-note to the identity of Phoebe Stanfield, I have found conflicting Parentage for her Husband, Samuel M. Graham. Your Info has one option and the other I have found list a Charles Graham and Elizabeth McCallum as his parents. This would explain his middle name. When I first starting searching all the info I had was Samuel "Mac" Graham, so the second set of parents fit the profile better.

Does anyone know anything about this line. I have information on Allen Luther STANFIELD's descendents and will be happy to share.

A. Gilreath ------- NAME: Anita Gilreath SURNAMES: KIDD, STANFIELD, TURNER DATE: Saturday, October 23, 1999 QRYTEXT:James STANFIELD and wife Nancy TURNER m. 20 Feb 1806 in Surry co, NC.

The Bradley co, TN Census for 1850 lists: James STANFIELD, 71, Farmer, bn in NC; Nancy 61, bn in NC; Rebecca 28, bn NC; Mason 23, Farmer, bn NC; Synthia, 18 (his wife of one year) bn TN; John Stanfield 25, Farmer, bn TN.

I believe this is the same James STANFIELD, who served as a bondsman for Mason STANFIELD and Elizabeth KIDD who married 27 April 1806 in Surry co, NC. I also think they are brothers, possibly sons of John, but have no proof. This is the only Mason I have found during this time period with the exception of Mason's son Mason in Pickens co,GA. The only problem I see is that if these are James and Nancy's children they were born late in their marriage (1806), but brothers named their sons after their fathers and brothers.

Just a few houses from James lives a Davison STANFIELD 21, Farmer, bn TN, Jane 20, and Timothy 1.

Does anyone know anything about these Stanfield Families. Would love another opinion.

I am sure, however, that my Stanfields are descended from the ancient British family.

My earliest known Stanfield ancestor was Daniel STANFIELD, born 1765 somewhere in England, exact place unknown. Daniel went to Australia with the first fleet in 1788 and after a time on Norfolk Island settled in Van Diemen's Land, now Tasmania. He married Alice HARMSWORTH in 1791 in Sydney, Australia.

For those who have not heard of Tasmania it is the large island at the south east tip of Australia and yes, the real Tasmanian devil comes from here!

If anyone out there knows anything about the earlier history of my Daniel I would love to hear from you.

STANFIELD, b. 2 Feb 1851 Brown co, IL. Her father was James M. STANFIELD, b. about 1830 in Haywood co, TN, and died about 1871/74 in Coffee co, KS. Margaret's mother was his first wife Elizabeth HULLETT, dau of Charles and Lucy T. R. HULLETT. They married 20 May 1847 in Brown co, IL. About 1858 they went by wagon train to Kansas with children, Margaret E, Alice (b. 5 Nov. 1855 d. 26 Jan 1936, m. Charles E. FOLLMER 11 Oct 1873, Wilson co, KS), Stephen A. Douglas STANFIELD, (b. 1 Feb 1857, Brown co, IL, d. 17 Nov 1921, Wilson co, KS, m. Clara Theresa PEARMAN 14 Feb 1875 Wilson co, KS), another daughter, Sarah was born 2 Aug 1860 in Burlington, Coffee co, KS (d. 21 Mar 1934, m. Hugh ARBUCKLE in Wilson co, KS). James' wife, Elizabeth died about 1861 and he married (2) Mrs. Sarah Jane TAYLOR, 30 May 1868 in KS. They had a daughter Ida.

I found a William STANFIELD in the 1830 Haywood co, TN census, so suspect he is the father of James, but have no proof nor the name of his wife. The uncle of Margaret was named Elijah STANFIELD, and after the re-marriage of James, the older Stanfield lived with their uncle Elijah in Wilson co, KS.

I think William STANFIELD's wife's name was Elizabeth., I suspect possibly could be Elizabeth HISE from Greene co, TN. Other family names were Samuel J, Elijah, Henry H, Thomas C, William E, John P, Sarah A, and Martha, all of whom were in Brown co,IL at the same time as James M. STANFIELD

Margaret was an enigma in itself. My mother-in-law told me that she had been married 4 times, and my husband and I finally found all 4 marriages in IL, the last to Henry COLCLASURE, produced one son, my husband's grandfather, Charles. I have pictures of Margaret and her sisters taken in their old age in Kansas, also pictures of Margaret and Charles when he was a child about 6, plus another picture of her holding my husband, a baby about 4-6 months old.

I am very interested in trying to find the ancestors of James, and any help you could provide would gladly be appreciated. I will be more than happy to exchange the information I have on Margaret.

You mentioned enigmas! We seem to be running into enigmas every day as well as breaking new ground on these Stanfields. I wish I had a concrete answer for you but I do not. I am interested that you mention the Stanfield-Hise marriage in Greene co,TN; it is not one that we had previously been able to account for, so it is a possibility.

I am unable to positively identify your people in my database, although there are some tantalizing possibilities. There is an Elijah STANFIELD in Greene co,TN, son of Samuel STANFIELD (c1788-c1835) & Hannah SMITH. This Elijah came to Vermilion MM in Illinois with his parents in 1828 and settled in Edgar County. Elijah married Angeline CLARK 23 Oct 1845 in Edgar co,IL. Unfortunately there is no mention of William as a son of Samuel & Hannah in the Quaker records. Of course that might not signify if he came to Western Illinois and not to Eastern Illinois with rest of that family. By virtue of your people being in Western Tennessee in 1830, I would surmise that they came North to Western Illinois on the Mississippi River rather than the inland migration path taken by the people from Eastern Tennessee. ------- NAME: Anne Ellison Hobbs SURNAMES: STANDFIELD DATE: Sunday, March 17, 2002 QRYTEXT:I am looking for the parents of Sarah Aramenta STANDFIELD, b.1857 d.1934.

Any way of proving David's line? Anyone know of marriage David STANFIELD & Elizabeth (not Betsy Beals) ca.1820 around Greene co, TN? Any descendants out there?

I disagree. The "unknown" parent of William Stanfield, b.1792 likely died before 1805. In 1806 the Quaker Thomas Stanfield Sr removed to Ohio as a part of the general Quaker movement to separate themselves physically from the influences of Slavery. I think it highly unlikely that his son would have gone in the opposite direction.

It is likely that some of the Alabama & Georgia Stanfields were sons of the Halifax County,VA Stanfields that went to South Carolina in the previous generation. Some of the Georgia Stanfields can be traced directly to the Virginia and Caswell County,NC lines. ------- NAME: David Jones NOTE:

Karolyn -
There are certainly more than enough William & Samuel Stanfields in my file to go around!! Based on what you have said your individual may well be William J Stanfield, b. 2 Aug 1836, Vermilion co,IL, the son of Samuel Stanfield Jr & Jane Clemmons. Here is a Family Group Sheet on them:

Their dau Rebecca is known to have gone to Dallas co,IA, so her brother William may have done so as well. Here is a Family Group Sheet on William's brother-in-law:

I obtained some of this info from a lady who was descended from Lea Thornton. She was not terribly interested in the Stanfield connection but was able to make the link back to IL. It does not appear from my records that these people continued as practicing Quakers after removing to Iowa.

Hope this helps. Please advise me of any great discoveries.

Is there some confusion or are these really different couples?

I would also like to know if there is any geographical information attached to the list.

These two Isaac STANFILLs appear to be cousins. Geographical information in the GEDCom from which this descendancy was prepared is spotty. It would appear that both of these individuals were born in TN, probably Maury County, and thus not the Isaac that you seek.
My great grandmother was Arena Lindsey STANFILL LOVE. She married my great grandfather, George Franklin LOVE in 1869 in either Henry or Weakly County, Tennessee.

She was born May 9, 1854 and that is the extent of my knowledge of her except that she may have had a brother named Baxter STANFILL. She and George came to Bell County, Texas in 1878 and that is where I am from. In looking at your database on the descendents of John STANFIELD, I found an Irena STANFILL (#2341) born in 1854 to George Washington STANFILL (#2312) and Arrana DOWDY.

Donnie Love Kinard

As this particular database does not represent my own research, I cannot give you any background beyond what is on the file and any data I may have added since acquiring it. The lady that you found, as it happens, is the only Irena in this database. There is not a great deal of place information in some parts of this database. Her father is shown as born in NC, while her father's younger brothers & sisters were born in TN.

This Irena's grandfather is given as John STANFIELD Sr,, Anson co,NC; d.24 Jan 1844, Stewart co,TN. His 1st wife was Elizabeth GOODRICH, mother of most of the children, marr. ca.1812 in Anson co,NC. The 2nd wife was Mrs Tabitha (MILAM) MYERS, widow of Dansby MYERS; she b. 18 Jul 1818, Stewart co,TN; d.14 Nov 1871, Stewart co,TN; bur. Ellis cem as wife of Henry H TRINKLE, her 3rd husband.

SURNAMES: STANFIELD DATE: Friday, April 24, 1998 QRYTEXT:First I would like to thank those of you who have assisted me and my son in our pursuit of the genealogy of the Marmaduke STANFIELD line; thanks all very very much. Some of you have asked many more questions than the answers you provided. This is good, because I like to check my research out against others before I let it out and it also means that there is an interest in what we are doing. My only request is that if you have any more information on Marmaduke's children and the families of Symond, Lawrence, Joseph, Robert, and Thomas I would love to see it. I am certain that there are going to be some suprises in this line for some of you. I will also be honest and tell you that I have most of this genealogy finished. What happend in England or Ireland I can't prove unless I see it, so I will not include that.

In a few weeks if it's okay with Jerry I will send him a post with some new information on Marmaduke's line that we have proved. Also we are preparing an honest answer for the many questions that you have asked us. Some of the question's answers are obvious ones; others are more detailed and harder to prove and will be hard to accept, but I am still in need of and would appreciate your input. I will have an answer for every question that has been asked of us and the proof, if we know the answer. That's how we work.

Thank you all very much again and I hope to be hearing from you soon.

I have found that Robert was a sailor in the 1680's and Samuel was a master of a ship called the Hopewell before 1658. I believe that the early Non-Quakers may have been involved in robbery and pirates on the North Carolina coast preying on the Spanish ships.
Thank you in advance

Cecil Abram Stanfield (1895-1972) of Tulsa,OK, the grandfather of our friend Rowland Stanfield, in correspondence with Stanfield researcher Goldie Hieronymous, in speaking of his own great-grandfather Jonathan Stanfield (1814-1903) said that there was a family tradition that he was the offspring of BOTH major Stanfield lines and was therefore the descendant of a Quaker and a Pirate. Current thinking is that Jonathan was the illegitimate son of Quaker Mary Stanfield (1797- ? ) who later married Abraham Starr in Greene co,OH in 1818.

The page at the Stanfield Family website entitled
Ancient History of the Stansfield Family in England
is taken from Oscar C Stanfield's book History of a Stanfield Family and has been independently confirmed by more recent research to represent ONE of the primary Stansfield Main Lines in England. Much of this descent has been documented by the College of Heralds as various wealthy branches of the Family were armigerous. It has been generally accepted that all people of English descent bearing the name Stansfield, Stanfield, Standfield, Stanfill, Stanphill, or other obvious variation, are the descendants of Wyon Marion, 1st Lord of Stansfield. Being able to prove that assertion is another matter.

Beyond a certain point in English history, only the pedigrees of the wealthy can be proven. The very simplest explanation is that the inheritance of wealth depended upon proof of descent. The Stansfield family was not an immense family but it was large. For every 100 men named Stansfield there was one very wealthy guy, 6 middle class guys, and 93 real poor guys. The eldest son of the real wealthy guy was also a real wealthy guy while his younger sons became middle-class. The eldest son or two of the middle-class guys stayed middle-class while the younger sons became real poor guys. All of the sons of the real poor guys remained real poor guys. Every once in awhile an exceptional individual, born a real poor guy, would succeed in making it into the middle-class. The descent of the real wealthy guy is well documented. The descent of the middle class guys can be carried back some with quite a bit of work. For the real poor guys, forget it. At some point in going back you run into the problem of trying to ascertain which of the 30 John Stansfields living in Yorkshire is your guy. You may know who they all married from the Parish Register, but which John Stansfield is the parent of your person? Without a Will, the connection cannot be made. Guess what -- none of the 93 real poor guys made wills because there was no need to do so.

At present we have not been able to find any proof of the parentage of Samuel Stansfield (ca.1644-1699). Although such proof may be merely awaiting being found, it is just as likely that it does not exist. Until such time as it is found, all that can really be said is that he was probably born one of those 93 real poor guys and is related to the real rich guy but we are not quite sure how. ------- NAME: Alice Meyer SURNAMES: HOLT, STANFIELD DATE: Saturday, August 12, 2000 QRYTEXT:In search of parents of Jane and Nancy STANFIELD, both of whom married Hiram HOLT in Halifax co, VA. ------- NAME: Alice Meyer SURNAMES: HOLT, STANFIELD DATE: Thursday, August 24, 2000 QRYTEXT:Looking for sisters, Jane STANFIELD and Nancy T.

Cheers, Tim

I have posted your query to the Stanfield Group. I doubt if anyone has more info on the question you raise than I do, so I thought I would respond. As indicated on the page in question at the Stanfield website, the source for the info is History of a Stanfield Family, by Oscar C Stanfield, Cheyenne,WY, 1961. I have no idea where Oscar got his material as he really did not cite individual references. It appears, however, that the full descent from the time of the Conquest may have been found by him in History of Stansfield-Crompton of Esholt Hall which he mentions as one source for part of this material. He also cites a Yorkshire history for part of the material. In neither case does he give an author, publisher, or publication date.

Oscar's work was privately published posthumously by his son. It is available on microfilm from the LDS.

Hope these observations are of some interest.

Thomas died 1851. Naomi died 1855. Notes from elderly family. The Richards, along with the Stanfields and Quakers lived in KY, then PA, then Ohio. Thomas emigrated from Wales as a small boy. I do not know his birthdate, but 1850 census states he was 30. Do not know who gave the 1850 census information as they spelled Naomi's name wrong and "unknown" where Thomas was born. Addl info - Grandmother Stanfield kept Tecumsah. Stanfield settled a section of land in Ohio. Had saw mill; made shingles. When the Stanfield's moved to Ohio they settled among the Indians. The deed for the land was stamped on buckskin; had 640 acres. They paid the Indians for the land since they were Quakers. Am trying to locate the movement of the Stanfield family. Thomas and Margaret REAMS STANFIELD (Naomi's parents) were married in Ohio 1814, but what towns did they live in KY and PA. If I can locate that info I may be able to trace the movement of the Richards. Would anyone have a picture of the Thomas STANFIELD family.? Thanks to all the Stanfield's for their great info on the internet.

We have a Family Group Sheet on the website for Naomi Stanfield's parents at:
Thomas Stanfield Jr (1790-1838)
Much of the data on this page is based on the correspondence & research of Oscar Cyrus Stanfield (1878-1953) who was the original author of the Stanfield History. From what he says in his book, he was in correspondence with Stanfield descendants in OH. All indications are that the Stanfields came directly to Champaign co,OH (later Logan co) from Greene co,TN, in 1806.
