Archelaus Stanley was born in Virginia around 1773 and is a likely son of Archelaus Stanley and Elizabeth Ladd. According to Hinshaw's Encyclopedia, his parents were married at Henrico, Virginia 4 June 1758. The marriage record refers to Archelaus Stanley as the son of Joseph and Mary Stanley of Hanover County, Virginia, and Elizabeth Ladd, the daughter of John and Mary Ladd of Charles City County, Virginia.
Archelaus passed away before 26 March 1851 when estate Administrator Isaac Stanley, likely his son, pays for a coffin and grave digging.
Archelaus married Miss Mary Brannon on 18 January 1803. The Marriage Bond was signed by Archelaus Stanley and John Brannon (inferred father of the bride). Archelaus and Mary Brannon Stanley had five children during their marriage.
Removed the 1840 Frederick, Va residence from the timeline as this source is for the son with the same name. The record is for Archelaus Jr and wife Mahala Hudson and two sons: William and John.
