I'm looking for information on my great great grandparents, James M Stanfill and Sarah Jane "Fannie" Welker Stanfill. I have very little info on them and have just started trying to research this particular line in my family tree.
What I know: My grandmother on my father's side was Annie Robbie Halliday Austin. She was the daughter of Robert Graham Halliday and Willie Ann Stanfill Halliday. Willie was raised by her grandparents, William Welker and Lucy Bartee Welker. There is a 1880 Montgomery Co., Tn. Census that has Willie age 12 living with Wm and Lucy Welker and listed as their granddaughter. There were also 2 grandsons listed on the 1880 census living with Wm and Lucy, who were Sam Stanfill and Duke Welker. What another researcher has found is that James and Sarah Stanfill had several other children, but no one knows why two of them were raised by Sarah's parents. The other children were Laura Stanfill, Ellen L V Stanfill b.1858 Samuel W Stanfill b. Nov 1858, Mary E Stanfill b.Dec 1861, Luvenia A Stanfill b. 1863, John Wm Stanfill b.Oct 1865, Marcellus Sylvester Stanfill b. June 1867 d. Nov 1947, Willie Ann Stanfill b. 1868 and George Stanfill b.1875. I'd really appreciate any help if anyone has any knowledge about them. Thanks, Lynn Bible
