I am trying to locate anyone who may be a descendant of Marion D. Stanton (born 17 August 1839 Terre Haute, Vigo County, Indiana, died 11 February 1906 Logan, Phillips County, Kansas) that can tell me what the D. stands for. I am also interested in who his father was. The family moved from Terre Haute, ID before 1841 to Mercer County, IL. Marion had a sister named Sarah Jane and a brother named Michael Mortimer. It is believed that their mother was Mary A. Hoover. But finding that elusive marriage record and a father's name has been a challenge. Any help or leads would be appreciated. Thank You!
