Marty - i've been to the cemetary at Pleasant Grove. Most researchers agree that Ellen and her husband Elisha, who is also buried there, are descended from Jesse Stansill, brother of John and Martha. I cant say for sure, but this leads me to believe the place to look is back toward Jesse. These three siblings came from Wake/Johnston County NC to Mecklenburg (now Union) right before the Rev War. There is considerable discussion about whether the parents of the three are out of the line of William Stansell (ca 1690), John Stansell (born ca 1693) or Peter Stansell (born ca 1695). They are all the sons of John Stansall (1662-1713), who emigrated from London to what is now Suffolk VA in 1683.
