was educated in Devonshire. They emigrated to the United States and settled in
the town of Hounsfield, Jefferson County, New York, on a lot due south of
Elizabeth's parents, Thomas Lane and Nanny Stamp.

In the 1860 census of Hounsfield, William reported his occupation as farmer and
Elizabeth was recorded as "housekeeper". The farm at that time was valued at
$2,800, and personal estate at $500. Three of their daughters, Jane, Esther and
Fanny, were listed as teachers, probably at Hounsfield Schoolhouse No. 5, which
was attended by later generations. Son Amos Stoodley was recorded as a farmer.
Manuel Jeffrey, age 13, the son of Elizabeth's sister Jane Jeffrey, is listed at their
residence in the 1860 census. On 15 January 1856, William was a witness to the
will of his father-in-law, Thomas Lane, and on 26 May 1862 he was present at
the proving of the same will.  

He died 25 November 1882 at age 79 yrs. 25 days, in the town of
Hounsfield, Jefferson Co., New York.  William Stoodley and Elizabeth Lane
are buried side by side at the Sulpher Springs Cemetery on Sulpher Springs Road
in Hounsfield. William's stone is unreadable, however Elizabeth's is in excellent
condition. The inscription at the bottom of her stone reads "Mother Home in
