Biography

Archelaus Stanley was born in Hanover, Virginia to parents Joseph and Mary Stanley in 1736. He married Elizabeth Ladd at a public meeting of Friends in Virginia in 1758. Together they had three children, Agness, Jesse, and Archelaus. In 1770 Archelaus was appointed overseer of Cedar Creek Monthly Meeting of Friends in Virginia.[1][2][3][4]
The 1758 handwritten marriage record for Archelaus Stanley and Elizabeth Ladd states that Archelaus Stanley is the son of Joseph and Mary Stanley of Hanover County and Elizabeth Ladd is the daughter of John and Mary Ladd of Charles City County.[5]
Archelaus and family migrated to North Carolina in 1776 after being granted a certificate to New Garden Monthly Meeting of Friends. Elizabeth passed away in 1799 and Archelaus remarried within the year to another Quaker named Martha Johnson.[6][7]
Archelaus filed his testamentary "Will" in Surry County on May 8, 1805. The beneficiaries of his estate were wife Martha, daughter Agnes, her two oldest children, and his son Jessie Stanley. His son Archelaus was not included in the Will. This could be because Archelaus didn't follow the Quaker faith, or Archelaus could have received his share of the estate prior to the death of his father.
Archelaus passed away in 1807 and was buried at Deep Creek Friends Cemetery in Yadkinville, North Carolina. His will was proven in Surry County court in November of 1808.[8][4]

Research Notes

Were there any other children? This profile originally included the following children:
  1. Johnathon - 1760
  2. Soloman - 1775
Up to this point we have no proof that they existed. It would make sense that they had other children because the first child on record comes ten years after the marriage date.

Wondering if this person had a brother Isaac Stanley who died around 1794 in Berkeley Virginia?

Martha, second wife, born in Ireland abt 1740, would have been 60 years old when they married. They couldn't have had more children. Could Johnathon and Solomon been from Martha's previous marriage?

Last Will & Testament, Surry, NC Will Book 3; Pg. 82 (image 108 & 109) Interesting that Wife Martha Stanley, Daughter Agness Stanley, Grandsons Elijah and Archelaus, and Son Jesse Stanley are all mentioned in his will, but no mention of son Archelaus.

No indication that I have found that he ever had sons named Jonathan or Solomon.

See my Note about this story (long paragraph near bottom b4 Sources heading) on "possible" Uncle John's profile?. Yes it seems this is a matter of record.

? I say "possible" uncle because there's no documentation as to whether father Joseph was actually a son of Thomas the immigrant, thereby making Joseph and John "possible" brothers.

I found this buried in in Ancestry.com under the category of "family story". "Archelaus Stanley was one of the 3 Stanley cousins who were taken by force to serve in the French and indian War under Col. George Washington at Winchester, VA in 1756."

The same record included references to Elizabeth Ladd and transcribed MM notes from Henrico MM, Cedar Creek MM, as well as a transcription of his last will.

Is the story about the French & Indian war legend, or fact?
