I have been researching my great-great grandfather for some time in an attempt to determine who his parents were. William B. was born in Henderson, NY in 1817; died in 1895 in Henderson, NY. His wife was Jermina Ann Champlin married in 1841.
I have long suspected that a Jedediah Stanley who appears in the Rutland, Jefferson County, NY 1810 census and then in the 1820 and 1830 census for Henderson, Jefferson County, NY may be his father (mother still unknown). Alas, I have not yet been able to definitively make this link. Additionally, I believe their may have been additional siblings of William B. Stanley (perhaps, Frederick Swan Stanley of Smithville, NY), but once again have been unable to link this individual to my family tree.
Any ideas or assistance would be greatly appreciated.
