Notes for ROMA ETHEL "DAISY" STANLEY:
Roma Ethel was born to my great-grandmother Eva Stanley (Vaughn) at the age of 18. Due to Eva's age and the fact that she was unmarried, Daisy was given to William D. Stanley, a first cousin to her grandfather, and son to John Stanley to raise. William D. Stanley and his wife adopted Roma as their daughter. Her name was changed from Daisy to Roma Ethel. There is no exact reason why she was given to William D. to raise, except the family was trying to evade the father (who's name is not known) and the whole family moved to the State of Washington. She in turn married a Jesse Douglas. It says on her SSDI that she was divorced when she died at the age of 91 in 1977. She kept in contact with her mother, Eva Stanley Vaughn, by way of letters, until Eva's death and was never kept from the truth. She also knew who her father was, but it has not been revealed at this time.
Thanks to cousin, Larry Robinson for my Stanley information!
