Stanley Family Genealogy Forum
I am the great granddaughter of Isaac , they called him "Ike" Stanley (He played a instrument that he was good at and it is called the juice harp)and Mae Maltida Mullins. They were married on January 3, 1885 in Wyoming County, WV. My great grandfather was born in Dickenson County, Virginia and his parents were William Stanley. A cousin of mine claims that his mother was Anna, but we are not sure. My grandfather, Robert "Riley" Stanley was born March 27, 1890 at Nealy Ridge, Dickenson County, VA. Isaac was killed in Wyoming County, West Virginia between 1891-1893, we are not sure of the death dates. We cannot get it straight, but grandfather doesn't remember him, he was only toddler. My grandfather Robert, as his nickname is Riley took his new bride Arvilla to Dickenson COunty, Virginia to visited his father's family. We are not sure who he had visited, if we can get a name(s), maybe we can figure who his parents might have been. They visited the family about 1911. I hope someone will help me.
