Notes:

An example of name-swapping or confusion about last names of Dickinson and Paris (Name "Emma Paris" in John W. Staley obit). See also 1870 Census for J.D. Dickinson listed as David Paris. (Census Data for Dickinson Family)

See Staley page on this site for Almeda Foland's (first wife of James Franklin Paris) sister Sarah Foland. Sarah Foland Staley's son John William Staley married Emma Dickinson, step-daughter of James Franklin Paris.

I also incorporated info from Veronica's Ancestry pages as they appear on Roots Web. Veronica Stroud's family tree on RootsWeb.
