Stanley & Allied Families, Volume X
Descendants of Thomas(3) & Sarah (Crew) Stanley
Released 2005
Compiled by David Stratton

Stanley & Allied Families, Vol. X was released at the June 25-26, 2005 Stanley Reunion in Canton, Ohio.  Although it is named Volume X due to the order of Thomas1 grandchildren, it is actually the 6th volume NSFA has published to date.

The descendants of Thomas3 & Sarah (Crew) Stanley moved from Virginia and settled in Stark, Mahoning, and Columbiana Counties of Ohio, before the generations spread out.  David says, "Now we have descendants from New York to California, Oregon to Florida, and even Australia."

The book also contains the descendants of Agatha3 (Stanley) Stanley, which would have

been Vol. XXIII if it had appeared separately.  Agatha3 Stanley married Littleberry4 Stanley, 

the oldest son of Thomas3 & Sarah (Crew) Stanley.
