Research Notes

Travel:
I found several Rockford, Illinois newspaper stories in the "gossip" section about Carl and his family. Evidently Carl frequently traveled between South Dakota, Illinois, and Iowa to visit his family. Eventually he found his way south to the Lone Star State. Daddy says that he came to Texas to start a a citrus farm. The book "Window to the Past, a History of Brazoria County" includes a few pages about the citrus farmers- . a cold front came through and destroyed the citrus groves.
Birth Record:
It's possible that a birth record does exists. Consideration has been given to an error in the filing of the birth record and a theory that a birth record was not filed. Joseph Carlton Stanley provided different birth dates on recorded documents. This provides alternate birth dates to consider: 16 Feb 1876,[14] 16 Feb 1874,[3] and January 1873.[2] A birth record was found for a female child born in March 1867 for parents Adam and Jane Stanley. This child was "un-named" and born only 7 months after the couple was married.[22] This was probably a filing error on Cora's birth record which was corrected to March 1868, her actual birth date.[6]
Death Certificate issues
Date of death July 25, 1933 in Brazoria County. His death certificate states place of birth: Berkeley Co, WV. Father's Name "J.D. Stanley". Mothers name, PoB, and fathers PoB are "Unknown". informant at Carl's death gave the name J.D. Stanley for the Father, either because it was the only name she could remember, or J.D was used as an abbreviation for "John Doe". Joseph Carl had a brother named John Douglas Stanley who was known as J.D. Stanley. I believe that his wife Pearl, who was the informant, gave the name John Douglas Stanley.[6]
Clues from DNA:
DNA appears to link Stacy Jo Stanley, Joseph Carlton's great granddaughter, with Archileus Stanley, Joseph Carlton's grandfather. A 5.4 CM segment match on Chromosome 8 with two other profiles attached to the profile of Archileus Stanley.[23]

  23. Observation of Philip Rich 14 Jan 2018. "I was looking at your Stanley line this morning, and when comparing your AU-DNA to the samples attached to Archelaus Stanley I find a common 5.4 CM segment shared on Chromosome 8 between the 3 of you. Now this is a rather small segment, and although not conclusive, it is consistent with the expected distance of the relationship."

That worked!

Contents Section auto populates when there are more than 2 or 3 =Headers=. It actually helps on longer Bio's because you can use it to quick-jump straight to the section you want.

But if you're going for uniform Bio body > Source citations styled profiles it can look out of place. I can't see your work because of Privacy settings, but try changing the =Residency= heading to :'.'.'Residency'.'.' instead (minus the periods of course)

Still trying to clean up the citations. How do I get rid of the contents section? I assume it's got something to do with the way I've set up the biography and sources.

Thanks,
