Andrew Jackson Stanley was born in Virginia (possibly what is now West Virginia) in 1828 and died near Rising Sun, Indiana in 1896, where he is buried (possibly died on the Kentucky side of the river near or in Rabbit Hash, where the family lived in 1870, or in nearby Franklin County, Indiana, where the family was living in 1880). Census records state he was a laborer and that the family moved frequently. The birth locations of their children could indicate the family was living on both sides of the Big Sandy River (border of Kentucky and what is now West Virginia) in the 1850s.
Could the family's locations indicate that Andrew's line of work was connected to the rivers? - Kelly Leonard 20:03, 09 April 2021 (UTC)
