Descendants of Robert Stanfield of 1700 Prince George, VA


Generation No. 3


      8. John3 Stanfield, Capt. (William2, Robert1) was born 1755 in Abbeville District, SC, and died November 08, 1805 in Abbeville District, SC. He married Sarah A Roberts 1777 in Antrim Parish, Halifax County, VA, daughter of William Roberts and Sarah Addison. She was born December 01, 1757 in Halifax County, VA, and died February 03, 1854 in Sand Mountain, Marshall Co., AL.

Notes for John Stanfield, Capt.:
John Stanfield was a Revolutionary War Captain. He and his wife, Sarah Roberts Stanfield, had at least 12 children.
John and Sarah Roberts were married by the Rector of the Protestant Episcopal Church.
John entered the Revolutionary War from Guilford County, NC as a Private, promoted to Lieutenant, and to Captain under the command of Captain Arnold, Major Crump and General Caswell. He served from the time he entered until the close of the war. He was in the Battle of Guilford County Courthouse.
We know that this John lived in Antrim, Halifax County , Virginia. during the Revolutionary War. It is there that he married Sarah Roberts on February 16, 1777. The marriage was preformed by a minister of the Episcopal Church in the County of Halifax.

After the war, John lived in Randolph Co., NC (formerly a part of Guilford County, NC). In 1787 he was an elected member of the House of Commons of the General Assembly of North Carolina, representing Randolph County.
Some years later, he moved to what was known then as Abbeville District, SC, today this is Laurens County, SC. John died in Laurens on 11-08-1805.

See notes for William Stanfield (John's father) for information about his will.

Land recap :
Seems likely the sale of William's 300 acres to son John in 1786 marks William's move to South Carolina. John sold his 400 acre state grant to brother-in-law Samuel Roberts. He then bought 200 acres from Abeduego Moore, 300 acres from his father, and another state grant for 160 acres, for a total of 660 acres. He sold 360 acres to John Stafford in 1788 when he moved to South Carolina, leaving 300 acres unaccounted for. Sarah was apparently married by now, did she and husband get part of this 300?????

John Stanfield would join his father in Abbeville by 1800, but in 1790 he was in Randolph County, NC.

Randolph County Deed Book 1, Page 134. 11/05/1794- Simm Gerin, Esq., High Sheriff of Randolph Co. to Wm Bell for 1,217.13.4 pounds by writ from Halifax, 4/25/1794, commanding him to sell chattel & lands of Robert McLean, John STANFIELD, Robert Reading, Pearce Noland, Phillip Roddy & Dennis Hopkins. Sells land of Robert Reading 300a on Back Creek to Wm Bell /s/ Simon Gearn Wit:J. Clark, J. Harper

You would have to look at the Court records of Halifax, Co., [VA, I presume] to determine what precipitated the writ ordering the Sheriff of Randolph Co, NC to sell these properties. It could result from any kind of judgment including divorce and/or confiscation for participation in losing side of Revolution. Thus you would need to check to know the particulars and they might be different for each individual named.

The writ is referenced in the deed to prove that the sheriff had the right to sell the property in question. The writ covered both real estate and chattels. Chattels are generally used as a legal term to describe personal property or movables as opposed to real estate (or land which is not movable, of course). It is a catchall that could have covered livestock, wagons, tools, crops, furniture, etc.

It is possible, I suppose, that upon removing to South Carolina, Capt. John executed a Power of Attorney, which he left in hands of some relative in Halifax County. The P of A would have given them legal authority to sell or otherwise dispose of John Stanfield's remaining property in Randolph Co., NC. That person may have then gone into Court in Halifax County and using the Power of Attorney, convinced a Judge to sign a writ to have the local Sheriff in NC handle the situation.

Randolph County May Term 1798 The Execution of the above Deed of Convayance from Simeon Gerin Esq. Sheriff was acknowledged in open Court by S. Sheriff & ordered to be Registred

Note: Was executed (not recorded) just a couple months before that odd deal in which the Randolph Co. Sheriff was commanded by a writ from Halifax (seat of the state legislature) to sell chattels and land of several people in Randolph Co., including John Stanfield. Was the earlier deed an act to pre-empt the expected action from Halifax? If so, it seems that the pre-emptive sale survived the writ, because the deed to Ragsdale was executed/recorded in 1795. I would not be a bit surprised if there isn't something in the records of the NC State Legislature in the late spring/early summer (prior to the date of the deed with Ragsdale) that will explain the writ issued in Halifax Co.

Granville County, NC, militia lists. You will find Capt. John (at the time private) and some of his pack there, including the Izard County Langstons. There's a lot of Duplin County names here also. Note a John and Arthur Watson, just like Walton County. Granville is just across the state line from Halifax and Mecklenburg. Also listed is Moss Harvel. This is possibly is Moses the father of "James of the kick-butt?" Special Note: #77 in Capt. Glover's company is Moses Harvell according to the original publication. Must be a typo by the database transcriptionist, or a scanner/OCR error. The original book (something about tribes in NC) was excellent and rich in genealogy data, but was so fragile and crumbling that it was kept in a box and could not be xeroxed.

Notes for Sarah A Roberts:
After John's death, his widow, Sarah moved to Murray County, GA, to live with her youngest son, George R. Stanfield.

Information was obtained from an application for a pension (Pension *W6215) which Sarah made July 12, 1848 based on the fact that her husband was an officer and served in the Rev. War. The pension was effective March 4, 1848 in the amount of $93.33 per annum. This record is in the National Archives in Washington, D.C. The record also states that Sara resided with her son George R. Stanfield in Dalton (Murray Co.), GA on July 12, 1848. In 1849, this son's address was Van Buren (DeKalb County), Al. She was living with him on Sand Mountain in Marshall County, Alabama, when she died on February 3, 1854. Sarah was 97 years old.

Sarah received a Revolutionary War pension/$93.00 per annum

She was sometimes referred to as Sarah Jr., since her mother-in-law's name was also Sarah (who was referred to as Sarah Sr.)

Murray Co., GA. 12 Jul 1848 lived with George.
De Kalb Co., AL 1850 lived with George.
Marshall Co., AL 1854 lived with George.

Sarah married James Miller in Laurens Dist. SC. This is probably the same James Miller who witnessed the divorce of George Ryland Stanfield. After they were married in Laurens Co,. they went back to Randolph Co., NC. That is why Polly was back in Randolph when she married James West, living with or visiting her sister Sarah.

Our goal is to find out what became of Sarah Roberts Stanfield's daughter Sarah, who was named in the 1848 pension application of the elder Sarah. We know from the affidavits in the pension application that this daughter Sarah must have been born 1779-84, and that she was still alive in 1848. We have anecdotal evidence that "a" Sarah Stanfield, who would be of the same generation as the one born 1779-84, was the mother of Roger's Samuel Harwell/Harvell who was born in c1814 NC, lived and married (1835-ish) in TN, and settled in AR/Izard after the Civil War. The fact that a brother (Wm) of Sarah Stanfield's also ended up in AR/Izard lends credibility to the anecdotal evidence.
