1.  ISAIAH5 STANDIFORD  (JOHN4, JOHN3, WILLIAM2 STANFORT/STANDIFORD, UNKNOWN1 STANDIFORD,) was born Aft. 1736 in MD, and died Aft. 1810 KY.

Notes for ISAIAH STANDIFORD:

This Isaiah is quite possibly the son of John and Esther Fuller Standiford, although there is no definite proof.  John and Esther had a son named Isaiah Standiford born after 1736 in MD.  (See their genealogy).  This Isaiah, son of John and Esther, is the only known Isaiah Standiford born in the 1700s to date.

Isaiah is mention as the father of Anne Nancy Standiford who married John Dodson 1811 in Pulaski Co., KY.  From Pulaski County Kentucky Marriage Records: John Dodson-Ann Standiford m. April 12, 1811 (bond); joint consent of William Dodson and Isaiah Standiford; Surety, Thomas Vitteto. John Dodson was the son of William Dodson and Sarah Barron.  The Dodson and Standiford families of Pulaski Co., KY migrated to Howard Co., MO, early where they intermarried.

We find Isaiah first on the Lee Co., VA 1799 tax list, listed in ďFrom Early Settlers of Lee County, VA & Adjacent Counties (1977) by Ann W. Laningham (along with Archibald Standifer/Standford) and then in Pulaski Co., KY, where he consented to his daughterís marriage and is found living with his son, Jobe Standerford on the 1810 Pulask Co., KY.  (Jobe Standiford m. Ruth Dodson, daughter of William and Sarah Barron Dodson).

Isaiah is living with Job Standerford on the 1810 census of Pulaski Co., KY:
Job Standerford, 1 m 45+, 1m 26-44, 2m under 10; 3f under 10 and 1f 26-44.

Notes for NATHAN B. STANDIFORD:
From Faubion and Allied Families:

"Nathan Standiford, who was a farmer, enlisted in the Union Army during the War Between the States.  It is recalled in family legend that he had returned home to visit his wife, Catherine, their two children, and his mother, and on his way back to join the "troops", he was ambushed by "bushwackers", shot and killed.  Home and place of burial are unknown.  This family, with Catherine's mother, Nancy, age 57, and an unidentified Sarah Forbian, age 35, were still living in Platte Co., MO in 1860 (Preston Township, Ridgely, MO.).  The family legend, however, tells of this family moving into Lawrence or Tonganoxie, Kansas, and the possibility of Nathan's death and burial there.

It is told that, after Nathan died, Catherine moved into the home of Mary Jane and Joseph Wright, her sister and brother-in-law, who were then living in Tonganoxie, Kansas; and that she lived there for several years until her marriage to George Farren.  It is also told that one of her young daughters fell into a fire or fireplace and died as a result of severe burns; that Nathan Standiford "made chairs" and that Kate died of a heart attack."
