Descendents of John Standfield and Mary Sherrod

Descendants of John Standfield

The surname can be found as Stanfield, Standfield, and Stanfill. Much of the work on this family has been done by other researchers and what you see here is a combination of files that have been shared with me and information that I am verifying. Where more than one birth or death date is given or a date is given twice, you'll notice that the locations given differ; these are some of the dates and/or places that other researchers haven't agreed on and I haven't checked for myself yet.

There is quite a bit of information on the Stanfills and related families in Goodspeed's History of Campbell County. Portions of the history and biographies can be found on the Campbell County TNGenWeb site.
