Jacob Stanley was born in Campbell county, East Tennessee, September 15, 1806, and was educated in the schools of that state. His occupation has always been farming. Mr. Stanley was married in his native state, in his twenty-fifth year, to Miss Elizabeth, daughter of Thomas Moad, Esq., a near neighbor of Mr. Stanley's father. Soon after his marriage, our subject, in company with his father and father-in-law's families, removed to Ray county, Missouri, first stopping during the summer about two miles west of Millville. He has since greatly improved and extended his place by entry and purchase, and it now numbers some five hundred and twenty acres. Upon this farm Mr. Stanley lived until the day of his death, June 22, 1879. Eleven children have been born to Mr. and Mrs. Stanley, six sons and five daughters, who are all living except one son, the eldest, and two daughters; and all but Thomas M. and Henry J. are married. Thomas M., the elder of the unmarried sons, has the management of the old homestead, and lives upon it with his mother. Mr. Stanley, at the time of his death, had been twenty-two years a consistent member of the M.E. Church South. He was a kind-hearted man, a good neighbor, and an upright, fair-minded honest man.
