According to the Ashe County Heritage Book, we are
descended from Shade Stanley, however, I can't find
a Shade Stanley. My Great Grandfather was Robert
Alfred Stanley, his Father was Robert A. Stanley from
Wilkes County, North Carolina. Connecting them to
a Shade, or Shadrach or Shandrick is pretty tough.
I have run across your Stanleys and have not thrown
them out as possibles. One thing I do know is that my
Stanleys moved around a lot.
