His Irish parents are unknown. He also lived in Maryland, Pennsylvania and finally Ohio. We are also indebted to Steve Reeves,710 Ashley Drive, Chillicothe, OH45601, for much of the history of the Andrew Stanton family. The family lived in Wilkesville Township, Vinton Co., in the 1850-80 Census records. Andrew's Will was filed on Nov. 19,1861. He died June,1861, and is most likely buried at Saint Mary's Church Cem., Minerton, alongsi
Rachel and their children, Bridget and Ambrose. It is not known when Rachel Stanton died. She is listed "in the Wm. Shoemaker household at the June 25, 1900, Census of Clinton Twp., Franklin, Ohio." In 1860 the combined real estate and personal value of the Stanton farm is placed at $3,100, and climbs to almost $7,000. in 1870.
All eight of Andrew and Rachel's children are living in 1860. They are James, Mary Sullivan, John, Ambrose,
Bridget, Aloysius, Ignatius and Rachel Catherine Lawler. Rachel Stanton adopted a foster child, Nancy, in the 1870/
1880's.Nancy, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Jack Buck, was born April 17, 1872, married William D. Shoemaker. She died May 24, 1942, with burial at Greenlawn Cem., Columbus.

Father Thomas has taught at the Newman Center, Salt Lake City, Utah, and now at Seattle. The back cover of his first book in 1987, "The Healing Team," Paulist Press, gives a marvelous insight into an accomplished researcher, writer and our relative: "Fr. Leo Thomas, 0. P. has spent most of the past ten years with the Institute of Christian Ministry in Tacoma, Washington. There he directed a two-year training program entitled 'Formation For Healing Ministry,' out of which this book developed.
Father Thomas has taught pastoral care and counsel¬ ling at the Menninger Foundation in Topeka, Kansas, and at the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley, California. In addition he has served as a hospital chaplain and had worked actively in the Charismatic Renewal." Father Leo's second publication, "Healing As Parish Ministry," Ave Maria Press, 1992, rounds out this holy writer, whose hobby of relaxation is wood carving.

136 (Medical):A memorial stone was erected by the Groton Historical Society in 1946 for the family of William Longley, his second wife, Deliverance Crisp.

The Memorial read: "Near this spot dwelt William and Deliverance Longley with their eight children. On the 27th of July 1694, the Indians killed the father and mother and five of the children and carried into captivity the other three."

While the inscription reads five children were killed, we know of four who would be at this site: William, Joseph, and two infants. Jemima was scalped and left for dead. There is disagreement whether she died at the scene or later. No further records of this Jemima have been found in town records after 1694.

The location of the burial site of the Longley family is based, in part, on the following: "The house where the massacre was perpetrated was made of hewn logs and was standing at the beginning of the nineteenth century about two miles north of Groton Centre. The family were buried a few rods northwest of the house. A small apple tree marks the spot."
