      Stanfield Barn

      (for larger image, click on photograph)
      _______________

      This barn once stood on the Jeremiah Bradsher Stanfield (1850-1891) farm just west of Roxboro (Person County, North Carolina) on the Leasburg Road (US Highway 158). The barn site was beside the family cemetery, and a portion of the brick foundation remains. Restored by the Person County Museum of History, the barn now has a new rock foundation, new chinking between the logs, and a new tin roof. Note the period sign. The barn is on exhibit at the Person County Museum of History (Roxboro, Person County, North Carolina).
      _______________

      Jeremiah Bradsher (Jerry) Stanfield died young. He was only 41 when he died in 1891. In 1871, he married Minerva Catherine Fox. Thus, the couple was approaching their twentieth wedding anniversary when Jeremiah Bradsher Stanfield died. In addition to his widow, he left behind eight children (the oldest being only 18 years old). Jerry did not live to see any of his children married. The cause of death is not known, with the only record being medical bills that were paid as part of his estate settlement. He died intestate (without a will), and Haywood D'Arcy Foushee administered the estate for the widow and children. See: Jeremiah Bradsher Stanfield Estate Documents.
      _______________

      In the death certificate of his son Louis Green Stanfield he is referred to as Jerry Lee Stanfield. This obviously was a clerical error as Jerry Lee Stanfield is a grandson of Jeremiah Bradsher Stanfield.
