Fred,

I found a reference to Adam Stansbury in a biography of George Lechner of Mineral Point, OH. His son Joseph, married Flora, daughter of Adam:

GEORGE LECHNER, farmer, P. O. Mineral Point, was born in Pennsylvania November 30, 1820. and is one of the three sons of John M. and Elizabeth (Rider) Lechner, his brothers being Jeremiah and Joseph. They came to Stark County, Ohio, in the winter of 1827-28. John M Lechner died here, and his wife died at the residence of her son Joseph in Indiana. George Lechner was married, in March, 1844, to Matilda, daughter of Mathias Firestone, who had a family of ten children. The children of George and Matilda Lechner were six in number, viz.: Catherine E., wife of Philip C. Furney; Charity, who was Mrs. Cunningham, and died July 5, 1873, leaving two children, Anna L. and Alice M.; Joseph M., married to Flora, daughter of Adam Stansbury; Osee A., wife of Emanuel Sweaney Oliver P., married Isabell, daughter of Michael Frantz, September 6. 1883, and Matilda J. Mr. Lechner has been Township Trustee twelve years, resigning at the expiration of that time. He is a Republican; began life without means, and has amassed a handsome property of 300 acres, well stocked and improved.

Do you know who was the mother of Flora? I have an Adam Stansburger, married to (1) Mary Burget and (2) Eve Hockersmith. Hockersmith is not Eve's maiden name, she was previously married to Peter Hockersmith. My line descends of Adam and Eve's daughter Jessie.
