David Stansbury son of Charles Stansbury and Mary Meche (Mesh)

I'm looking for information on David Stansbury. I found reference to him on the census records in St Mary, Iberia and Terrebone Parishes in Louisiana. David Stansbury married Maria Campbell Keller on 01/03/1866 in Terrebonne Parish. Maria Keller had children from a previous marriage (Joseph, Abner and Frances Keller) which I also found in the census records.

I'm trying to locate more information on David Stansbury and Maria Campbell's children.

On the 1870 Iberia Parish census I found reference to Ann and Eveline. I'm trying to determine if this "Ann" is my great grandmother Annie Gertrude Stansbury. At the time Ann was 3 and Eveline was 8 months.

1880 St Mary census shows Maria Campbell as the mother of Abner Keller and Frances Keller. Also Nathan, Eveline, Lawrence, ?, Elmira along with David Stansbury (husband). No reference is made of Ann on the 1880 census. She should have been around 13 at the time.

Annie Gertrude Stansbury married Alphonse D Hooper on 02/14/1886 in Iberville Parish. They had 4 girls: Mary Winona Hooper (my grandmother), Frances May, Effie Cecelia, and Annie Gertrude. My grandmother was sent to live with some of the Stansbury's in the Bayou Boeuf area when she was 18. This couple told her they would give her everything they owned if she stayed with them until they died. My grandmother didn't want to stay there. I think this is when she met my grandfather because the Beadle family was listed on the same census records as the Stansbury's.

If anyone knows any information about David Stansbury please contact me. Thank you.
