  • Notes 
    • There is a marriage record issued to Susie Stanley and Andrew Bankston on 25 June 1906. It is likely that this is Susan Stanley, the sister of John B. Stanley. She would have been about 22 or 23 years old at the time of her marriage. In the 1910 Federal Census of Rhea County, Andrew Bankston is living next door to John B. Stanley and on the other side of him is his older brother, John with his family. The census indicates he is widowed and has a 3 year old daughter, Alma.

      This is undoubtedly the correct Susan Stanley; there is sufficient circumstantial evidence to conclude that it is. Susan was John's younger sister and she met or grew up with Andrew Bankston. Furthermore, no trace of any Susan Stanley or Susan Bankston in Rhea can be found after 1910. She may have died during child birth or sometime between the birth of Alma and the time the census was taken on 18 April 1910. Andrew would remarry in 1915 to Lucy Muckey on the 27th of September.
