    I have a copy of our family history that shows we have a Dr. John William Staley that was from Charleston, South Carolina born in 1817. He went to other states and then settled in northeast Louisiana. I can not find where he was buried in Louisiana and I can't find any trace of him in South Carolina. If anyone can give me any help I would be very grateful.

  2. Hello, Laura. Your John William Staley was a brother to my gg-grandmother, Emma Elizabeth Seabrook Staley, who married William Abner Merritt. I have quite a lot of the Staley line (well documented) on my website However, I have not been able to trace the Staley line beyond their father, Christian Staley. I have their maternal (Hanahan) line back for several more generations. Please get in touch, as this line is one I've been struggling with for a long time. I am eager to see where you fit in.

    All best,

    Pat Zettner

    P. S. Your John William was probably born on Edisto Island. His father later purchased Accabee Plantation on James Island, now a part of Charleston. One source states that John William was buried in Nacogdoches Co., TX, although I have not been able to verify that.
