It's good to hear of someone else looking into Elisha Stansbury. I'v been beating my head against a wall. My G-grandfather died in Jefferson County (John W. Stasbury), Ohio and according to his death notice in 1884 (he was 48yr. old), he was from Brooke County, W.V. which is right across the river from Jefferson County. When I looked up the 1820 census for Brooke County, I found no Stansbury, but I did find an Elisha Stansberry and he had, according to the census of 1920, one person in the family (w/m)between 10&16, one (w/m) from 16 to 26, one (w/m) from 26 to 45, three (w/f) from 0 to 10, one (w/f) from 10 to 16, two (w/f) from 16 t 26 and one (w/f) from 26 to 45. Thee were also two male slaves used for agriculture. And then there is the listing of Ancestry.com tat I found which shows Elisha Stansbury having children named Sarah, Elizabeth, Matilda, John, Jane, Ellen, Abraham and Nicholas. In my case Nicholas had a son named John W. Stansbury, but their dates are about forty years off. Well, good hunting and good luck. If by chance I can provide anything, just ask and I'd be glad to give you wht I'v found.
