I am trying to find information Henry or James Henry Stanton who is listed as my Great Great Grandpa's Dad on a 1869 Sheet from Kentucky. I believe my Great Great Grandpa was Oliver C Stanton born in 1869 to a Henry or James Henry Stanton in Lincoln County Kentucky. Oliver shows up as a 1 year old in the 1870 Garrard County Kentucky Census. I cannot find any information in regards to marriage, birth, or death records or dates or parents on Henry or James Henry Stanton. And no info on a wife although previous research I found shows Sarah Stanton is Oliver mom. Oliver C Stanton is Buried in Macoupin County Illinois.

Thank You I will look further into the above info and see if it plugs into the family tree. It appears to so I will start by trying to find a marriage certificate for Mason Stanton.
Pretty sure that Oliver was farmed out to the wiesners....James H Stanton is the father, but he seems to be missing

Hi, My Grandfather was Wilbur Stanton, His father was Maston Stanton, His Father was Oliver C Stanton.  James Henry is where I am stuck.  There is a James Harvey Weisner that shows up in 1803 as the father of James Henry Stanton.  I cannot resolve this.  Hope this helps you...are we cousins or what?  Maybe between the both of us we could figure this out.
