Descendants of Archibald Standerfer

(This is my family!)

Generation No. 1

1. ARCHIBALD1 STANDERFER was born about 1775 in Virginia, and died December 1847. He married PRISCELLAH BOLIN after 1797.

Notes for Archibald and Priscellah:

An Archabald Standefar can be found on the 1795 & 1796 Lee Co., VA Tax list (listed as one white male).

*On January 23, 1801, Archibald's signature can be found on a petition of sundry inhabitants of Grainger County,TN, north of Clinch River, to form a new county because of their difficulty in traveling to the Court House. We also find him on a tax list for Grainger Co. in 1801. His name is spelled Archble Standrphr.

*A biography of John B. Standerfer (son of Job) refers to his grandfather, Archibald. (See bio. Site)

* The History of the Bolin Family, by H. E. Bracken (written in 1939) refers to Archibald's wife, Pricellah, and her son by a previous marriage, James Bolin.)

"Nancy Bolin (born Taylor-wife of James above) was born Oct. 24, 1803, on the Ashly river, six miles from Charleston, South Carolina. Her family then moved to Kentucky when she was about six weeks old and settled on the Sinking river. James Bolin was born the second day of December, 1796, in the state of Tennessee. He was a raftsman and he floated logs in rafts to New Orleans. About the time Illinois became a state or a little later, the Taylor family left Kentucky and spent a winter in a log camp at the mouth of the Little Wabash river, after crossing the Ohio river at Shawnee town. They later lived in Hamilton county. When Nancy's fourth child was born, the family moved to Moultrie county and settled on where is now the Brackin farm. Granny Bolin ways said they came the 'winter of the deep snow', and drover over stake and ridered fences. James Bolin died April 18, 1847. Nancy Bolin died April 8, 1887."

"The Bolin family was making the trip up to what is now Moultrie county with another family. The family being comprised of Uncle Ben Auxier, several half brothers of James Bolin by the name of Standerfer. All the names that I can remember are: Uncle Jerry, Uncle Frank and Uncle Arch. Aunt Sally Standerfer married Evan Waller and she afterwards married Tom Purvis."

"Granny Bolin told me of an incident of the trip on the way up here as follows: it seems that the weather turned bad either cold, rainy or snowy, and they came to a settlers house and asked if the women and children could stay in the house for the night. The man turned them down almost before he was asked. Uncle Ben Auxier told the rest of the family to drive in and that he was going to have a throw down with the Amish man. Afterward Granny said that they had no trouble from the Amish man and that he was actually a very nice man. She said that the wife of the Amish man got milk for the children and was glad to have them stay."

*The History of Moultrie County, Illinois, Jonathan's Creek Township, pg. 71: (1867)

Settlements: ..... "Evan Waller settled south-west of the Bolin place in 1830, and Archibald Standerfer, Sr. and his family arrived a little later in the same year. His son, Jerre Standerfer, is still residing here. John Drew, with a large family, came here about 1833 or 1884. Thomas Fulton and Hamilton Bonham, with their families, settled a little later on the west side of the creek."

*In Probate Court Record for Evin Waller, deceased, Archibald Standifer is listed as bondsman, along with Thomas Fulton. (Probate Court Journal I, 1839-1849, pg. 329 to 335 incl.)

*Death Dates: Jobe Standerfer's bible lists Archibald's death date as December, 1847. This is the only known record of Archibald, SR's death. His wife, Priscellah died October 26, 1835. (No location is listed in bible) (See Bible Records Site).

*Archibald Standerfer, Sr. voted on November 5, 1832, in Hamilton town precinct in the presidential electors in Hamilton Co., Illinois. A note was made that his name did not appear in the 1830 census of Hamilton Co., Illinois

*Priscellah's given name is from Jobe Standerfer's Bible.  It is the only known document where Archibald's wife is identified.

                             Notes for BENJAMIN STANDERFER:

                       *In the 1856 deed, Benjamin sells by himself (no dower). The description is: "The undivided 
                        sixth part of the west half of the NW quarter and the SE quarter of the NW quarter all of 
                        section 22, TWP 14, No. Range 6E and the two tracts containing one hundred and twenty 

                       *Part of the land mentioned in the 1842 estate of Archibald estate was sold by Benjamin in 
                        1856.  T14N, R6E is in present-day, Jonathan Creek TWP in Moultrie Co. The closest 
                         cemetery to section 22 is Seass Cemetery. The Seass family raised one of the children of 
                         Benjamin---Oliver Standerfer.

                        *Rick Lanham has in his possession a letter written in 1905 written to his grandmother. 
                         writer said that Benjamin's last known address was a post-office in Hamburg, Iowa about 
                         1890.  Hamburg is in Fremont County, in the SW corner of the state. Benjamin Standerfer 
                         was living in Monroe County, IA, in 1850 with John Drew's family. One of John's sons 
                         (another John) is living next door with his family, which includes his wife Margaret Martin. 
                         They had married in Moultrie Co., Ill. The Drew family moved from Freemont Co. to 
                         Monroe Co. The younger John Drew buried his son (another John) at the Sunnyside 
                         Cemetery, Washington TWP., Fremont Co., Ill. (These records are on the LDS microfilm 
                         897,264, item 7 Fremont Co. cemetery records by the WPA in the late 1930's). John Drew 
                         (1-10-1852 / 4/25/1882); John Sr. (1-15-1827 / 10/25/1879). (The significance of this is 
                         that the Benjamin in the 1850 census Monroe Co. knew some folks who later moved to 
                         Fremont Co. The 1905 letter ties this Benjamin to the same place).

                         * You can now view this letter on this Website.  (See Old Letters Section)

                         *From Rhonda McClure: "Benjamin was tried in criminal court for Larceny September 4, 1864, 
                           in Monticello, Piatt, Illinois. A complaint was sworn out the 8th day of October, 1863, by Adam 
                          Shonkwiler detailing that Benjamin Standerfer and Thomas J. Babb had stolen $11 from him in 
                          US Treasurery notes (two fives and a one). Thomas J. Babb was released, and Benjamin F. 
                          Standerfer was bound over for trial. Job Standerfer, Henry Standerfer and Jeremiah Standerfer 
                          put up bail money for Benjamin (total sum of $500). However, in March, 1864, when Benjamin 
                          was supposed to appear he was no where to be found. On July 25, the Governor of Illinois issued 
                          a request to the Governor of Iowa for the arrest of Benjamin Standerfer. At a trial on September 
                          4, 1864, Benjamin Standerfer pled guilty, thus there is no testimony in the file from the witnesses 
                          for the prosecution (Adam Shokwiler, James Ball, Wesley Barrett, John Bogard, James Smitzer 
                          and Dr. Marshall). Benjamin was sentenced to one year in the state penitentiary, with the first five 
                          days to be in solitary confinement."
