Source: CAROLINA STANLEY WEBPAGE; STANLEY FAMILY HISTORY: As Written by Robert Remington Stanley (Additional Notation In Italics By Stephen R. Stanley).

Matthew Stanley, son of Joseph and Martha (Rogers), was born in Hopkinton, May 4, 1771. He went with his parents to Enfield about 1778, where he married Mary Spencer, who was born in Connecticut May 5, 1767. They lived in Enfield until about 1805, when they moved to Strafford, Vermont. Here he died August 24th, 1809, having only lived to be 38 years old. The land records of Strafford show that real estate was conveyed to Matthew Stanley in several instances, and that in 1810 "Matthew Stanley administrator of the estate of Matthew Stanley late of Strafford" conveyed this same property. In some of the deeds the residence of the administrator is given as Tunbridge, Vt. (A town adjoining Strafford). The widow Mary Stanley deeded away her "thirds" in 1813, at which time the family probably left Strafford. Mary (Spencer) Stanley died March 10, 1837. Their children, all born in Enfield, except the youngest son, were:

  1. . Mathias Stanley, born January 29 1792. He was probably the "Mathew Stanley" administrator of his fathers estate. I have never been able to find out definitively what became of him, although he may have been the man my father met in a Chicago hotel about 1880. Father says of this man " He was in charge of the coat room- very old and feeble and poor. He said that he had gone to Chicago from New York State, and that he knew my father (Lyman Stanley), whom he said was his first cousin. His name was Mathias Stanley." If this was the same man he must have been nearly 90 years old when father saw him.
  2. . Phineas Stanley, born July 18, 1793. He was drowned in Lake Champlain, when a young man. No children.
  3. . Abijah Stanley, born Sept. 7, 1794.
  4. . Joseph Stanley, born Sept. 10, 1799.
  5. . A daughter, twin to Joseph, who died in infancy.
  6. . Daniel Stanley, born January 21, 1804.
  7. . William Stanley, born March 1, 1807.
