TS, I’m interested in these Stantons as I believe they may be related by marriage to my Shepherd line. A Nancy Elizabeth Stanton married my ancestor, Thomas Shepherd in 1782 in Halifax County, Va. Her sister, Susannah, married a Runnion, and whose granddaughter married back into the Shepherd family (another ancestral line. The brother of the two sisters was a John Shelton Stanton. Anything in your records that might give me a lead? Thanks!
