Ira Marvin Stansbury

A reader wrote the following:

ID: 1156137. (R.K. West Master List). Ira Marvin Stansbury. He was my grandfather. The book Andrew Newcomb and His Descendants by Bethuel Merritt Newcomb is listed as a source for the information listed in RK. West's Master List. I am unable to locate a copy of that book. I think I may be a cousin, but I am very new at genealogy and could use some help to determine where we fit in with the Newcombs. Emily Madalene Newcomb was my great grandmother.

I don't know if the book Descendants of Baptist Newcomb would be helpful tracing my family lineage, but if so I would purchase it.

Thank you for any help you can give to me.

Database Updated

I've done some major cleaning and updating of my main genealogy database and just uploaded it to RootsWeb (also accessible through Ancestry.com and related services). To search for your Newcomb connections CLICK HERE.
