There is a William Stateler in the 1900 Federal Census for South Homer Township, Champaign County, Illinois. He is listed in the household of Emma Busey as a nephew. William Stateler is said to be age 14 years which means he was born about 1886. The data indicates that he was born in Illinois, his father in Indiana and his mother in Illinois.
Emma Busey's sister, Sarah Stateler, is also in this household and there are two other children listed. They are likely the children of Sarah as I assume is William but perhaps not since both Emma and Sarah are said to have been born in Ohio; William's mother is shown as born in Illinois. So, perhaps Sarah is not his mother. The others children in this household are: Ethel Stateler, age 16 years, and Fran (male), age 12 years. Sarah Stateler, age 60 years, was born in Ohio and both of her parents in Virginia as were the parents of Emma Busey, also born in Ohio. Both Emma Busey and her sister, Sarah Stateler, are listed as dressmakers. Both are likely listed by their married surnames; therefore, their maiden surnames are unknown.
Is anyone able to identify the lineage of these Statelers, especially the William Stateler I mentioned? Any leads will be appreciated.
