The purpose of a mailing list is to help us make connections with others who are researching the same line. My family has usually spelled the name "Standley". "Stanley" is an equally common variant. The goal of this page is to make the Mailing List more effective by providing a central collection of links to resources pertaining to the STANDLEY/STANLY surname [and variant spellings], and links to web sites belonging to our individual members.
The mailing list archives are now accessible through the RootsWeb Resources system. There, you will also find links to other RootsWeb sites that contain information about STANDLEY/STANLEY families, the RootsWeb Surname List, and a search engine that will help you find the what you need in many databases.

From Sharon McAllister:
James MILLIGAN and Ruth TEMPLETON removed from Iredell Co., NC with their family to Wilson Co. TN sometime between 1803 and 1810. All of the marriages of the children take place there. James died in 1828, in Wilson County, TN. Their son, David MILLIGAN, married Mary Ann STANDLEY. Sometime after that, but before 1840, David and Mary Ann MILLIGAN moved to Cannon Co., TN. Their son, Andrew Francis MILLIGAN, was born in Gentry Co., MO on April 22, 1850. He married Mary Jane FRIEND on October 23, 1870. They made the Run of '91 into Oklahoma Territory when the Iowa lands were opened for settlement. I include the MILLIGAN information here because we believe that Mary Ann's brother, Thomas STANDLEY, married David's sister, Merissa MILLIGAN, but I do not know anything about their parents or other siblings.
No area studies available so far, although templates are awaiting data from Iredell Co., NC, Wilson Co, TN, Cannon Co., TN, and Gentry Co., MO. If you'd like to see examples of what I hope to start assembling in this section, visit my Luther Site or the COLE Families Area Study of SW KY & NW TN.

Provide the address of your page and a brief summary about your earliest STANDLEY ancestor (similar to the one given above for Mary Ann STANDLEY).
