I am seeking the parents of Jonathan Stanley (1795 - 1835) who was from Franklin County, VA and moved to Rhea County, TN

A Jonathan Stanley shows up on the Franklin County VA tax lists of 1819, 1820, and 1821 with Buck (William IV) Stanley[1]. Typically, all related males of a family would go together to meet with the tax collector on the same day to pay their tithes. This would suggest that this Jonathan Stanley is either the son of Buck Stanley or related to him in some other way. I am seeking to prove or disprove this relationship.

I have complete information on his descendants who all lived in Rhea and Meigs Counties TN but my brick wall is in Franklin County VA


[1] Franklin County, Virginia tax lists 1804-1821, microfilm reel #121, searched by Marsha Stanley. Microfilm from the Virginia State Library. Note: He is known as William IV Stanley to genealogists for the purpose of differentiating him from the Williams that were his father, grandfather, etc.
