Notes


Company A, 11th Tx Infantry, served under Capt. Moss 1860-1865. In the 1st Battle of Bull Run, Stonewall was Scout Master, Alvis was captured once with the 100 and held prisoner in KY. He lost his right eye in Lincoln's War and had foot trouble from traveling so much with frozen feet. He was wounded on the right thigh, cancer developed at the old wound and the leg was removed.


During his life he helped raise many of the children in the family when their parents died; The Armstrong children, his 4 younger brothers and sisters Martha Elizabeth, Tom, John, and Belle; and his sister's son James Moore.


He also raised a negro boy camed Isum. He called Pa "Unky". His father was ill and asked Pa to raise him when he died. Pa raised him from the age of 5, the mother kept the four girls. He lived with the Alvis family til he married at 24. Pa gave him 50 acres of land. They lived at Five Mile Spring about 5 miles from Nacogdoches. Isum named his children after Pa's brothers and sisters. Isum played with Molly, Emma, Anna.


Newspaper Article Oct 2, 929. Reprinted from the Champion: 90 Year Old Vet Visits Brother After Many Years. W. W. Alvis of Etoile, Nacgodoches County, was in Center last week, visiting at the home of his brother Tom Alvis, this being the first time the brothers had seen one another in 12 years. W. W. Alvis is 90 years old, hale and hearty and apparently good for many more useful years on earth. he was in the service of the Southern Confederacy five years, 1860-1865. In his early years he was a noted prize fighter and engaged in several memoralble battles about seventy years ago when boxing gloves had not been thought of in this country. Men in those days fought with bare fists and Marquis of Queensberry rules had not then been adopted. The old war horse is still a pretty good man. he weighs 200 pounds and gets about as spryly as many men of fewer years. Tom Alvis is the baby brother of the old prize fighter and is now in his seventy-ninth year, not so vigorous, but still going strong. The meeting of the aged brothers here was a joyous occasion.


Newspaper Article, Jan 29, 1939, W. W. Alvis, 98, Civil War Veteran and Pioneer Resident, Passes into Eternity. William Warren Alvis, rugged Civil War veteran and lifelong resident of Nacogdoches County, answered his final earthly call Sunday and departed into eternity only three months short of his ninty-eighth birthday. There was nothing dramatic about his death - he simply sank slowly and quietly in his Valhalla where like his great Commander, Andrew Jackson, he too, will "rest under the shade of the trees across the River".


WW Alvis lived in Etoile, Nacgodoches County, Texas until his death 29 Jan 1939.

Thomas STANLEY I

ABT 1640 - 1710

ID Number: I5408

  • RESIDENCE: York Co. VA
  • DEATH: 1710, York Co. VA
  • BIRTH: ABT 1640
  • RESOURCES: See: NOTES UNPROVEN FATHER [S264] [S271]

Family 1 :
  1. +Thomas STANLEY II

Notes


NOT PROVEN FATHER of Thomas of New Kent. Three Thomas Stanley's have been identified:
1. A Thomas Stanley d. 1710 in York Co., VA. In 1662, a Thomas Stanley is found on p 308 of VA Land Patent Bk 4, abstracted in Cavaliers and Pioneers, Vol 1, p 399. This Thomas Stanley was a headright of Capt. Daniel Parke, who received a land grant in York Co., 20 Sep 1662. Their deaths were recorded in the Register of Bruton Ch, Williamsburg, York Co. VA.


2. A Thomas Stanley came from Eng in the ship Planter in 1635, and removed to Hartford, CT as one of its first planters, and had a son named Thomas. Later lived in Hadley, MA.


3. Another Thomas Stanley came from Felsted Co., Essex, ENG, probably in the ship Susan and Ellen, 17 July 1638 and in the company with his brother-in-law Joseph Loomis.
1704 VA Rent Rolls:
Stanley Edward Henrico County, 1705
Stanley Tho Parish of St. Peters and St. Paul, 1704


Histories of the Stanley families often ultimately trace this lineage to William de Alditheley, son of Adam de Alditheley, son of another of the same name who accompanied William the Conqueror into England in the Norman invasion of 1066. William de Alditheley married Joan, daughter of Thomas de Stoneley of an ancient Saxon family, and they lived in Stafffordshire, whose land he exchanged for the lands of Stoneley, whence he took his name.
