Comments

  • In researching the parents of Margaret (Stanley) Thornton (1758-1823), a substantial number of entries in ancestry.com list Thomas Stanley (1752-1823) and Unity Crew (1760-1852) as parents. The mathematics don't support this: the mother was born after the child and the father would only have been six years old. It is noted that these entries are in agreement with the birth and death date for Margaret (Stanley) Thornton.
  • In researching the parents of Margaret (Stanley) Thornton (1758-1823), several entries list John Stanley (1691-1783) and Martha Hutchins (1718-1789) as parents. This would mean that John was 67 years old when he fathered Margaret and Martha Hutchins would have been 40. Although this is not impossible, it should be thoroughly researched to ensure accuracy.
  • Margaret's father is likely to be Moses Stanley and her mother is likely to be Nancy Gurnell; however, there is insufficient evidence to add this lineage at this time.
