      While some researchers show 1850 as the death year of Jane Green Stanfield, the following census record suggests she was alive at the time of the 1870 US Census:

      1860 United States Federal Census
      Name: Jane Stanfield
      Age in 1860: 70
      Birth Year: abt 1790
      Birthplace: North Carolina
      Home in 1860: Person, North Carolina
      Gender: Female
      Post Office: Vanhooks Store
      Household Members: Name Age
      Jane Stanfield 70
      Elizabeth Stanfield 31
      Frances Stanfield 30
      William A Stanfield 28

      Her age of 70 would be consistent with the 1790 that many researchers use for her birth year. Also, she had children named Elizabeth, Frances, and William.

      1870 United States Federal Census
      Name: Jane Stanfield
      Age in 1870: 80

      Name: John Washington Stanfield
      Spouse: Janey Green
      Marriage Date: 1810
      City: Person County
      State: NC

      Stanfield, John & Janey Green, 25 Sept 1810 (Durrett Stanfield, D. C. Townes)
      Source: Kendall (Person County, North Carolina, Marriages)

      The 1850 census shows her name as Jane. The above marriage record shows her name as Janey. It is possible that her legal name was Jane and that she was called Janey. That is how she will be recorded until further facts are uncovered.

      Person County, North Carolina
      Deed Book E, Page 43-4
      13 June 1814

      43-4 John Stanfield and Jane Stanfield his wife (in debt to Andrew B. Wood for $100 bond) to Robert Vanhook, trustee, for 25 cents, 90 acres where Stanfield lives on Double Creek of Hyco adjacent James Jay, Sen., Jas Williamson, Abraham Hargis. 13 June 1814. Wit: Duncan Rose.

      _______________

      86-7 John W. Stanfield to John Stevenson of Granville County, North Carolina, for $425, 90 acres on Double Creek adjacent to James Williamson, James Jay, Abraham Hargis, heirs of Lewis Green deceased. 8 December 1817. Witnesses: Daniel Gooche, William Watson, Saul Forsythe.

      Source: Person County North Carolina: Deed Books 1792-1825, Katharine Kerr Kendall (1993) at 148.

      This deed is the only primary source found that refers to the John Stanfield who married Jane Green with the middle initial W, which presumably stands for Washington. Note that the Lewis Green referred to in this deed was the father of Jane Green, wife of John Washington Stanfield. Presumably, the heirs of Lewis Green mentioned are husbands of daughters of Lewis Green.
