Second Generation--
Mary Stanley, born 1824, in Missouri; died after the 1880 census. Married (Jan. 9, 1840, in Howard Co., MO) Asa Atteberry, born ca. 1812, in Kentucky; died Nov. 28, 1882, in Ridgeway, Harrison Co., MO; 70 years old. Her parents were both born in Tennessee, according to one census. According to their marriage certificate, her father was Thomas Stanley, and Asa was of Lafayette Co., MO, before their marriage.
At the time of the 1860 census Asa and his family lived in the Trail Creek Township, Harrison Co., MO. They had 8 children. Asa was buried in the Springer Chapel Cemetery, Fox Creek Township. At the time of the 1880 census, Asa and Mary were living with daughter Clara.
This is as far as I have proof of the connections--I have no proof yet that Asa is the son of Isaiah. But that connection is accepted among Atteberry researchers. Most of the information I have on the previous generations comes from Voncille Attebery Winters’ book.
