     According to Sue (Glendoline Ruth), the father of Martha Ellen Miles (George) was Garfield's best friend. Garfield always told George that he was going to wait for Martha to grow up. When Martha Ellen was 11 years old her father died. Whe Martha was 18 and Garfield 36, they got married!! They ran away and all she had with her was a comb! Garfield and Martha's families were neighbors. After that, our uncle Day Wilfong (John Day Wilfong) married Clara, Martha's mother --- hence our uncle was also our grandfather !!!

Father*Francis "Fran" Stansberry3,4 b. c 1760, d. bt 1830 - 1840
Mother*Mary Brown3,4 b. c 1760

Children of Stephen Stansberry and Sarah Sapp

     According to "The History of Monongalia County", Stephen Stansberry was born in 1803, married Sarah Sapp in 1826, and raised a family of fifteen children, eleven of whom are still living. Mrs. Stansberry and two of her sisters - Mary Pride and Elizabeth Trippett - had families which aggregated fourty-five children.10 Francis Stansbury came from New York about 100 years ago. His son Stephen settled in Clinton District about 57 years ago, and married Sarah Sapp; children - Joseph, Mary, Francis, Sarah, Henry, Jonathan, Stephen, William,
Elijah, Samuel, Ellen, Nathan, Jona, Delia and Maria L.
Joseph, Francis and Maria L. now reside in the district.11 According to a letter written by his grandson John Luther Stansberry on February 8, 1939, "Stephen and Mary Stansberry were our Great Grandparents." [editor's note: it is this statement that led to the idea that Francis Stansberry was also known as Stepen or Stephen]. "They settled on what is called the Smith Farm near the Stansberry Cemetery, probably about 1790 or shortly after. They owned twelve to fifteen hundred acres of land. They died about 1835, and started the cemetery. Sandstones mark their graves.
