  • Giles married twice.  His first wife Harriet Stanley died in 1827, and he remarried.

    Children reported from the first marriage are:
    Mary Ann b 1817
    George S b 1818
    John W b 1820
    Emily H b 8 October 1821
    Harriet b 1827

    Mary Ann is the one I follow as she married George C Terry in my family line.  His second wife is reported in some genealogies as Elizabeth Mary Deming, One genealogy, by Ed Deming, reports that Elizabeth and Giles married on 29 December 1852.  If this is right, then she died before 1860.

    Giles has no wife in the censuses of 1850, 1860 and 1870.  Another genealogy is somewhat confused, giving the name of Harriet Stanley for both wives, but the date of the second marriage is 16 June 1828.  This would match a remarriage after the death of the first wife Harriet.  Three children are shown from this marriage:
    Theodore b 1829
    Henry b 1831
    Joseph b 1833

    In the 1850 census living among the Terrys is a widow Jane Mansfield, who appears to be a sister-in-law of Mary Ann, Jane Mansfield, age 54 (born about 1808) in South Carolina.  The Mansfield genealogies I have seen report Mary Ann as the oldest child, born in 1817.  This Jane who married a Mansfield was born in 1808, which would indicate her husband was likely born 1805-8.

    This could have been a cousin of Mary Ann's.  Perhaps one of her father Giles' brothers moved his family to Georgia and Mary Ann went down there with them.  Giles and his wife, as well as some of their children, died in Connecticut, where they and Mary Ann were born.
