Looking for any information on the Standfield family of Surry Co, NC. Mary Standfield was my gr-gr-gr. Her birth was in Surry about 1792. Would enjoy learning about her parents and family.

My link is Mason Stanfield who married Elizabeth Kidd April 27, 1806. He was born about 1780. James Stanfield who married Nancy Turner was his bondsman. I assume they were related, but I have not been able to trace any of Mason's family prior to his marriage. If any of this is of interest to you, please contact me.

As Thomas Stanfield and Elizabeth Michaels show marrage, Surry Co. NC 28 Aug.1791 they are probably the parents Of the other five male Stanfield that md there. Brides are harder to spot. I think this line goes back to the Stanfield/Hadley Quakers of the Cane Creek M Meetings Check " Hinshaw Vol. 1" and their movement to the Deep Creek Area of now Yadkin Co. NC.

Two Stanfield groups in Surry

Al is mistaken. Thomas Stanfield and Elizabeth Michaels are my ancestors. They did not remain in Surry co,NC but accompanied Thomas' parents John Stanfield and Phillipina Jones to Cumberland co,KY prior to 1810. Thomas Elizabeth married in 1791. There is an older Thomas Stanfield who appears as a head of household in Surry in Census of 1790. It is likely that he is parent of Mason and Kiziah and some of these others that have been so difficult to trace.

I believe this second Stanfield grouping in Surry was a branch of the Cavalier Stanfield line from Halifax County,VA and is probably not directly related to the Quaker group in this timeframe.

John Stanfield/Phillipina Jones

Do you know how John Stanfield migrated to
Kentucky? I'm actually interested in
Phillipina's sister Ann and husband Joseph
Brown who ended up in Dickson county TN
by 1812. I was wondering if they could have
traveled to KY with the Stanfields and then
moved on to TN.

I don't for sure but would surmise that John Stanfield wife Phillipina went from Surry County along the earlier Daniel Boone route. thru the Cumberland Gap into KY thence West along the trace that is now the Cumberland Parkway. His will states that he
bought 50 acres of land from his son-in-law William Cain so evidently the Cains were the "pioneers" and his other children their families accompanied John Phillipina.

Ann Jones Joseph Brown moved back and forth between Central NC Bush River MM,SC
several times. They were eventually one of the pioneering families at the Wrightsborough Quaker Colony in GA. It would appear from the cert of 1772 that they were the guardians of James Jones, Ann Phillipina's retarded brother. Most all of the Jones family accompanied the parents John Mary to GA EXCEPT for Phillipina. So my inclination is to believe that your Ann {Jones) Brown went to TN from GA.

Thank you for the information, I'll start
looking in SC and GA. I think they were
in Guilford in 1778 for the marriage of
Ann's daughter Catharine Morgan and also in
1785 for daughter Ruth Brown's marriage. Could
you give me an idea where New Garden, Cane
Creek, Deep River and Bush River MM were

New Garden MM,NC ==> Guilford co,NC
Deep River MM,NC ==> Guilford co,NC
Cane Creek MM,NC ==> Orange Chatham co,NC
Cane Creek MM,SC ==> Union co,SC
Bush River MM,SC ==> Newberry co,SC
Wrightsborough MM,GA ==> Columbia co,GA
extracted records for all of these are in Volume I of Hinshaw's _Encyclopedia of American Quaker Genealogy_. This is the standard reference and is available at all FHCs on microfiche as well as on CD#192.

Palmer Family

Hi Jerry...We have been in contact before about the Halifax Stanfields. I didn't realize that you were into quaker research also. I am stuck with my Palmer family back in 1797 in Stokes C., NC. My ancestor, DAVID PALMER, was born thatyear and his parents were JOHN and ANNA PALMER (Anna's maiden name unknown). David also had NINE sisters. I can find no proof that John and Anna were Quakers or where they came from before they were in North Carolina. It appears, however, that all ten children married Quakers. Most of this family moved to Wayne and Henry Co's, IN around 1815 and from then on I know my direct ancestors from David on down to today. David m. Sarah Pearson and his sisters married as follows: Mary m. Thomas Powell, Martha (Patsy) m. John Draper, Leah m. Joshua Stroud, Hannah m. Newby Bogue, Anna m. Jonathan Pearson (brother of Sarah above), Sarah m. Jonathan Ratliff, Lydia m. Nathan Ratliff (brother of Jonathan), Nancy m. Jonathan Beason and Rachel m. John Modlin.

My line continues from David with John P. Palmer who m. Hannah Ratcliff, William I. Palmer who m. Harriet Louisa Callahan, Ernest Orville Palmer who m. Julia Etta Burcham, Forest Palmer (my father) who m. LaVancha May Roulette and me...Monica Palmer Dean who m. Edwin G. Dean, Jr., son of Edwin, Sr and Ozella Stanfield Dean. Any suggestion as to where to look beyond John and Anna ???
