Henry Augustus Stanley was born on a farm in Medina, Ohio September 21, 1828, the eldest son of Webster and Sophia Gallup Stanley. He came with his father to Wisconsin in 1835 and they were the first permanent white settlers in what became Oshkosh. He helped his father operate Knaggs' Ferry and helped him build the first cabin. His grandparents were Chester P. and Betsey Shipley Gallup, who arrived shortly later. He wrote an article on their trip to this area which is located in the OPM information files, #671 Stanley Family. He married Elizabeth Barber on February 3, 1856 in Oshkosh. The couple had three sons and two daughters. He left Oshkosh for Waupaca County prior to 1860. In 1863 he lived in South Dakota and by 1870 had moved the family to Ouachita Parish, Louisiana. The family returned to Wisconsin by 1876 and by 1880 were living in Marquette County, Michigan. He was the Guest of Honor during the Oshkosh Semicentennial in 1903. He died in Hermansville, MI in 1905.
